Marvel’s Phase Five is upon us, and with 29 movies so far and six TV shows (at least), it’s easy to get lost. If you need a roadmap to navigate the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, look no further.
Each movie and TV show in the series builds upon the other like chapters in a larger story called “phases.” Three phases combine to make a saga, and The Infinity Saga ended with Avengers: Endgame. At the 2022 San Diego Comic-Con, producer Kevin Feige revealed that the new one will be called “The Multiverse Saga,” and it’s not far off. In fact, it’s already underway.
We’re so far into Phase Four that it’s already ending, and Feige says this November’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will close it out. If that seems fast, you’re not keeping count. Phase Four started with the Disney+ shows WandaVision, Loki, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Hawkeye, and included the movies Black Widow, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Thor: Love & Thunder. Then it was bookended by two more Disney+ shows, Ms. Marvel and the upcoming She-Hulk.
Face front, true believers—as the late Stan Lee used to say—because Phase Five is about to begin. The list features new titles but lots of familiar faces. It will all build to not one, but two back-to-back Avengers movies. There’s lots to explore in between—not just a whole universe, but multiple ones stacked atop each other.
Here’s the complete release timeline for upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe TV shows and films. Below, we’ll explore the latest revelations.
