Marvel has announced several new series for the 2018 television season, including a revival of the Daredevil character. Charlie Cox, who previously played the superhero in Spider-Man: Homecoming, will return as Daredevil in the Netflix series Born Again. The series will consist of 18 episodes and star Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk. Daredevil also makes an appearance in the new trailer for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, which will debut on Disney Plus on Aug. 17. The end of Phase 4 will be marked by the release of the Black Panther film, which will cap off the Marvel phase.
The Multiverse Saga
The Multiverse Saga is a movie series spanning multiple timelines created by Marvel Studios. Phase 4 will wrap up with the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, while Phase 5 kicks off with Ant-Man: QuantumMania. The movies will leave an indelible mark on the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Multiverse Saga phase 5 of Marvel’s movies have been building up to the release of the movie adaptation of this popular comic book event. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness introduced the concept of “incursions,” or events where universes interact and collide. And the Russo Brothers, who directed Avengers: Endgame, have stated they are interested in making a Secret Wars film.
Marvel recently unveiled their Phase 5 movie lineup, which includes seven movies. The movies are set to debut in the next three years. The first movie in Phase 5 is Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which will be released on February 17, 2023. Other films in Phase 5 include Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (May 5, 2023), Echo (Alaqua Cox), and Loki season two (Samuel L. Jackson). In addition to these films, Marvel has also announced a series of television shows.
A new Marvel movie starring The Thunderbolts is on the way. Originally created by Kurt Busiek and Mark Bagley, the Thunderbolts are now coming to the big screen. But before we get to that, let’s look back at their history.
The team-up was first hinted at in Falcon and the Winter Soldier. The film introduced a new character named Valentina Allegra de Fontaine. She played the spy and scout for Captain America, Natasha Romanoff, and Clint Barton. The new team-up is likely to continue this scheming and team-up, which is likely to revolve around the Countessa’s manipulative nature.
In the comics, the Thunderbolts are a team of reformed villains, similar to the Suicide Squad. Their history is complex, and it isn’t clear whether or not the new film will follow in that vein. However, the characters are expected to appear in the upcoming Phase 5 film.
After Phase 4: Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and Phase 3: Doctor Strange, Marvel Studios has officially set the stage for Phase 5 and Phase 6. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is structured around interlocking properties, and Phase 5 and 6 will be dedicated to connecting and pulling these films together. This leaves fans with a lot to look forward to.
Sam Wilson returns as the Falcon in the New World Order, which will be the follow-up to Iron Fist. Directed by Julias Onah, the movie will follow Sam Wilson’s character. Another new series in the Marvel Universe will follow the Thunderbolts, an antihero team of reformed supervillains. And another big movie is in the works – a new film starring the Fantastic Four.
Loki season 2
The second season of Marvel’s Loki is set to arrive sometime in summer 2023. The new season will be the third project to be released on Disney+ during Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The first season ended in July 2021. The second season will feature six episodes, with Hiddleston reprising his role as Loki.
According to reports, Loki season two will focus on taking down Kang’s TVA, which was one of the targets of Season 1. It’s also unclear whether this new season will feature the same characters as the first one, but we do know that Michael Waldron, the producer of the series, has revealed a little bit about the show’s plot. “I expect Loki to be a different character and have a heroic streak,” he told Polygon.
The New World Order
Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the upcoming Captain America: The First Avenger are set to star in new movies based on the characters they first met in the comics. The first episode of the Iron Fist series featured the title “New World Order,” and that theme is also likely to be carried through the upcoming New World Order. Moreover, Sam Wilson will reprise his role as Winter Soldier in the film. Meanwhile, the upcoming movie based on the Thunderbolts will be directed by Jake Schreier.
The New World Order will bring a new cast into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including several alums of the MCU. Three of them are MCU veterans, including The Incredible Hulk’s Tim Blake Nelson, who will reprise his role as Samuel Sterns, also known as “The Leader” in the upcoming film. Nelson’s character will be the main antagonist, and he will have a range of powers. However, the powers may be scaled down a bit in the cinematic universe.
