After a monumental conclusion with Avengers: Endgame, Marvel Studios wrapped off a 22-film series termed The Infinity Saga. However, many Marvel movies are lined up in the production phase. When Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige took the stage at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con, he unveiled the list of movies to be released in the next two years as part of Marvel’s Phase 4. This gave us an idea of what the Marvel Cinematic Universe will look like in a world where Endgame has already occurred.
After undergoing significant changes due to the pandemic, Feige announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2022 that this new series of phases would be referred to as The Multiverse Saga. Today, we will look at some of the new Marvel movies we eagerly await!
1. Black Panter: Wakanda Forever
Coogler handed in his screenplay for Black Panther 2 in August 2019, and he spent the next year creating the narrative for the film. However, on August 28, 2019, the film’s lead, Chadwick Boseman, passed away unexpectedly. Unfortunately, nobody at Marvel realized the severity of Boseman’s condition. Thus the production was only scheduled to start filming in 2021 as a best-case scenario.
Kevin Feige announced in December 2020 that they would not hire a replacement actor to play T’Challa. On May 3, 2021, Marvel announced the title of the film ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.’ Kevin Feige later stated that all of the principal cast members from Black Panther would be returning to reprise their roles. The shooting of the film secretly started in July 2021 and continued until March 2022.

2. Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania
Marvel Studios and Rick and Morty screenwriter Jeff Loveless were hired to write the script. Kathryn Newton has joined the cast as an older version of Scott Lang’s daughter Cassie, and Jonathan Majors will play the villain Kang the Conqueror. Jonathan Majors will also play Kang the Conqueror.
3. Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 3
The production of the third film in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise was scheduled to begin in 2019. But writer and director James Gunn was removed from the project after some of the inappropriate jokes he posted on Twitter in the past were brought to light again. Unbeknownst to the general public, Gunn continued to meet with executives at Disney in the interim period after he took a job writing and directing The Suicide Squad for DC.
In March 2019, Marvel announced rehiring Gunn to direct the film. In the movie, Gunn will play Harley Quinn, a former member of the Suicide Squad who is now on the run. Even though the company postponed the original release date of 2020, the production won’t begin until Gunn finishes The Suicide Squad. Marvel Studios could keep Gunn’s finished screenplay.
4. The Marvels
In the sequel to Captain Marvel, which will be called The Marvels and will take place in the current day, however, filmmakers Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck will not return to the director’s chair. In the end, Marvel decided to go with Nia DaCosta, who was previously responsible for directing the adaptation of Candyman.
Teyonah Parris will reprise her role as the adult Monica Rambeau, which she previously debuted in the Disney+ series WandaVision. Zawe Ashton is going to portray the villain. Iman Vellani, who will portray Ms. Marvel in her Disney+ series, will have a supporting role.
Actor Mahershala Ali, who won an Oscar for his Moonlight and Green Book roles, was a surprise guest at Marvel’s Comic-Con 2019 panel. He was confirmed as the new Blade during the event, but no other information was provided. Bassam Tariq, who directed Mogul Mowgli, signed on to direct the film in July 2021. Stacy Osei-Kuffour is developing the narrative for the film. The first shot is expected to be taken sometime in October of 2022.
6. Captain America 4
Anthony Mackie will play the primary role in this continuation of the Captain America narrative, which will be officially unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con 2022. Mackie will have assumed the title of Captain America following his involvement in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier plot. The showrunner for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Malcolm Spellman, and the other writer who contributed to the show, Dalan Musson, are working together on the script.

Regarding the Thunderbolts movie, not much information is currently available. When it comes to premises, that’s an old chestnut, all right. The government enlists the services of a gang composed of various villains and anti-heroes who have banded together. It reminds me a little of the Suicide Squad, to be honest.
The motion picture production began in June 2022, with Jake Schreier (Paper Towns), who was set to direct, and Eric Pearson, who was writing the screenplay for the film. Among Pearson’s other writing credits are the scripts for “Thor: Ragnarok” and “Black Widow.”
8. Fantastic Four
Jon Watts, who helmed Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far from Home, and the planned third Spider-Man movie, will be directing a brand-new remake of Fantastic Four to integrate the characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Marvel revealed in December 2020. Although we did see John Krasinski in the role of Reed Richards in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, it is not yet clear who will portray the 616 version of Richards.
Watts resigned from his position as director in April 2022, which caused the situation around the movie to become uncertain. The director is yet to be named, leaving a massive gap between the announcement and the movie’s release. We only know that the film will be a part of Phase Six. The film’s shooting is scheduled to begin in 2023, with release expected on November 8, 2024.
