Dive into the world of "Armor Wars" and discover its connections to "Iron Man."

Fantastic Four (November 8, 2024)

Fantastic Four The Direct

One of the three officially announced Phase 6 projects is the long-awaited "Fantastic Four" film. Production is set to begin in 2023, with details on the cast and director yet to be announced. Marvel fans can't wait to see this beloved superhero team join the MCU in their own reboot.

Wakanda (Fall 2024)

Okoye, Wakanda The Direct

Director Ryan Coogler is reportedly developing a Disney+ series that explores the Kingdom of Wakanda. This project may also revolve around Okoye, played by Danai Gurira.

Eternals 2 (February 14, 2025)

Eternals 2 The Direct

Actor Patton Oswalt accidentally revealed that "Eternals 2" is in the works, with director Chloé Zhao returning.

Avengers: Secret Wars (November 7, 2025)

"Secret Wars" will serve as the culmination of the Multiverse Saga following "The Kang Dynasty." This adaptation of the comic event will see universes collide and heroes clash. With a different director expected for "Avengers 6," the anticipation for this grand finale is sky-high.

Exploring the Marvel Cinematic Universe

It's important to note that this predicted Phase 6 slate doesn't mention the X-Men. While fans may be eager for their debut, there haven't been enough signs of movement on any mutant-related projects for the Multiverse Saga. The X-Men are expected to have their spotlight in the MCU's third saga, joining the ever-expanding roster of Marvel heroes.

Apart from the mentioned projects, characters like Doctor Strange and Shang-Chi will likely receive sequels, and select series will see Season 2 renewals. The Marvel Studios catalog of storytelling is vast and diverse, with numerous animated projects in the works as well. Brace yourself for an exciting future filled with captivating characters, thrilling adventures, and endless possibilities.

Phase 6 is set to kick off in Fall 2024, following the theatrical release of "Thunderbolts" on July 26, 2024. Stay tuned for updates and prepare to be amazed by what Marvel Studios has in store for us!
