What we have learned:Co-star Cobie (Maria Hill), was present to preview the dark and gritty political thriller. It stars Samuel L.

Joining them are Kingsley Ben-Adir (seen multiplying into several identical forms in a confrontation with Fury), Olivia Colman (seen telling Fury he’s past his prime) and Emilia Clarke (seen brandishing a gun). The overall feeling is one of paranoia, foreboding and a greater anti-heroic thread running through Phase 5.

'Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3'

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3”

What we have learned: An emotional James Gunn and his equally emotional cast — including Chris Pratt, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Sean Gunn, Will Poulter and Maria Bakalova as Cosmo the Spacedog — debuted the first look at the final Guardians film, which hinted at revealing how Rocket became a sentient, walking raccoon.

“Daredevil: Born Again”
Premiere date:Spring 2024

What we have learned: Original launched as part of the Netflix slate of Marvel TV series (which were nominally part of the MCU), Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock is being (fully) brought into the Marvel Studios fold with a Disney+ series that is getting an unprecedented 18-episode order for its first season. Cox’s Murdock first reappeared in 2021’s “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” and his nemesis Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio) popped up as the big bad on 2021’s “Hawkeye.”Both characters will be appearing on “Echo,”Daredevil is also expected to appear. “She-Hulk,”Before returning to the main event of this series.

Netflix has the best streaming service. “Daredevil” series was far more violent and bloody than anything that’s been produced by Marvel Studios directly, further suggesting that the MCU’s Phase 5 will wade deeper into the moral murk than it ever has before.

What we have learned: We’ve known since the conclusion of the Disney+ series “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier”Anthony Mackie announced that Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), would be returning to the role of Captain America in his own feature film.

What we have learned:Similar to “Avengers: Infinity War”Install “Avengers: Endgame,” Feige mYou can find more information atde clear that Phase 6 of the MCU — and the Multiverse Saga — will conclude with two “Avengers” movies.

“Avengers: Secret Wars”
Release date: Nov. 7, 2025

What we have learned: After many fans — and some entertainment publications — wondered aloud this year about where, exactly, the MCU was heading, Feige took the time in Hall H to finally say: Here.

“Secret Wars”Points to a Marvel comics crossover miniseries that was released in 2015, which involves an incursion between Earth-616, the main Marvel universe (Earth-6166) and Earth-1610 (Earth-1610). This leads to theBoth are destroyed. It leaves behind many Marvel characters who find themselves on a postapocalyptic planet called Battleworld.

It is not clear, and will remain unclear for some time, how much Marvel Studios will make from the 2015 Olympics. “Secret Wars” — or the mid-1980s “Secret Wars”It was inspired by a miniseries. The most important detail, however, is the actual event. AfterThe “Secret Wars”: Marvel Studios effectively rebooted, launching “all-new, all-different”Many of the most loved titles were rewritten in versions.

Could there be another for the MCU too? Only time will tell.
