Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has already started with a series of Disey+ shows and movies and we loved all of them. Looking back Marvel has come a long way from Ironman and The Incredible Hulk to Avengers: Endgame.
After the endgame, many of us thought that Marvel cinematic universe will not be the same but we were proved wrong after Marvel released their Disney+ shows like WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, What if, and, Hawkeye. These shows got crazy love from the audience.
And after all that, we got movies Black Widow, Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings, Eternals, and just a few days earlier we got the best Spiderman movie yet Spiderman: No Way Home which grossed a billion globally and it seems that phase 4 of Marvel cinematic universe is going to be more insane and awesome.
Marvel has many upcoming projects for its future and in this article, I will be writing about Marvel’s upcoming movies so here is the list of upcoming phase 4 Marvel movies.

Morbius is going to be released on January 28, 2022, and it is based on Marvel comics which will be produced by Columbia Pictures with Marvel. It is said to be the third film to be in Sony’s Spiderman universe so after the release of No Way Home and rumors of Andrew returning as Spiderman in the Sony universe, we can expect that the movie will also show us something interesting about Spiderman.
Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
We have watched in series like WandaVision and Loki that alternate reality or multiverse is now in chaos and we also saw something about the multiverse in the latest Spiderman and after the movie, Dr. Strange will continue his journey in his movie’s sequel where we will also see various other characters like Wanda (Scarlet Witch), American Chavez, Shuma-Gorath, and many others.
Certainly, we will see Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange in the movie and Benedict Wong as his role Wong and we also saw in the trailer that Karl Mordo will also be in the movie. After the huge success of Spiderman, now fans are expecting no less from this sequel of Dr. Strange which will be released on May 6, 2022.
Thor: Love and Thunder
Similarly, Chirs Hemsworth is set to bring some love and thunder with his movie Thor: Love and Thunder. After the success of Thor: Ragnarok, director Taika Waititi is set to return as the director of Thor’s first fourth standalone movie.
It seems that the movie will focus on Natalie Portman‘s character Jane Foster. The story is taken from the comic Mighty Thor where Jane Foster will wield Mjollnir. Another interesting thing about the movie is Christian Bale is joining MCU and will be portraying the character of Gorr the God Butcher, it really will be interesting to see Thor fighting Gorr the God Butcher.
As for Tessa Thompson, she has already confirmed that she will be returning to the movie portraying her character Valkyrie and she also revealed that her character will be bisexual in the movie and Thor made her the new King of Asgard, she will look for her queen. The movie will hit the theatre on July 8, 2022.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One)
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is a sequel of the 2018 movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and this animated movie is set to be released on October 7, 2022.
The teaser trailer of the movie is already out and it seems that this sequel will continue right after the first movie. In the trailer we see Miles and Gwen going into alternate dimensions and we also see that Miles is being attacked by another Spider-Man.
The first installment of this movie was pretty successful and after the trailer release, the hype for this sequel is insane. Let’s wait for some months to finally enjoy this animated movie.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
Black Panther was released in 2018 and after its success, there were talks about its sequel, and the sequel also got confirmed but the production of its sequel got complicated after the tragic death of Black Panther actor Chadwick Boseman in 2020.
While there were rumors that Chadwick will be recast as T’Challa using CGI but the production team has now confirmed that Chadwick will not be recast as T’Challa which means CGI will also not be used.
After the news people started who will be the Black Panther then? And many thought that Shuri will take over the role of Black Panther while some people theorized that Erik Killmonger is not dead and he will become the next Black Panther.
But as per Kevin Feige, it seems that the movie will be focusing on Wakanda and people living in it rather than focusing on Black Panther. Also, there have been new announcements and according to the announcement Shuri will be facing against Namor the Sub-Mariner. Also, it seems that Dominique Thorne’s character Riri Williams will be introduced in the movie before her show Ironheart will release. The movie is set to release on November 11, 2022.
The Marvels (Captain Marvel 2)
As per the sources, The Marvels will be released on February 17, 2023, and certainly, Brie Larson will return as Captain Marvel and we will also see Iman Vellani portraying her character Kamala Khan from Ms. Marvel in the movie. Other than that we will also see Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau.
Also, there are rumors that the movie will also feature Samuel L. Jackson‘s Nick Fury, Jude Law‘s Yon-Rogg, Randall Park‘s Jimmy Woo, and Cobbie Smulders‘ Maria Hill. There is not much information about the villain or antagonist but it is said that The Marvels team will fight against Zawe Ashton‘s villain character.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
The second sequel of the movie was released in 2017 but we still have more than a year to wait for its third sequel. The Director of the movie James Gunn was fired by Marvel after his offensive jokes from a few years ago resurfaced.
But people wanted Gunn back and after the public outcry Marvel again hired Gunn for the third installment of the film but Gunn had already signed with DC for the movie The Suicide Squad and TV show Peacemaker from The Suicide Squad.
So we will have to wait till May 23, 2023, for the third installment of the movie to drop but we will see the guardians in the movie Thor: Love and Thunder as well as in the show The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania
We will also wait more than a year for this movie to hit theatres as the movie will be releasing on July 28, 2023. The cast and crew members are mostly the same as Paul Rudd will be portraying his character of Scott Lang and Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne.
All cast members are the same except for Scott’s daughter Cassie Lang, we all saw in Avengers: Endgame, Cassie’s character was portrayed by Emma Fuhrmann, and in the third sequel of the movie Ant-Man Emma will be replaced by Kathryn Newton.
There are rumors that by choosing an older actress, we might see Cassie’s transformation to become Stature. Also, people are excited to see Jonathan Majors‘ Kang the Conqueror in the movie after seeing him in the Loki series.
Blade (To be Announced)
According to the sources, productions of the film has already started and the film will be directed by Bassam Tariq and the character of Blade will be portrayed by Mahershala Ali who has already worked in various successful movies like Predator, Alita: Battle Angel, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Moonlight, Green Book, and many more.
Loki series already hinted existence of his character and we might see him make his appearance in the series Moonknight next. Also, in the post-credit scene of Eternals Dane Whitman is about to touch a sword someone tells him “You sure you’re ready for this Mr. Whitman?” and now it has been confirmed that it was Mahershala Ali’s voice as his character Blade.
While fans are really excited for the movie to drop, there has not been any official statement on when the movie will hit the theatres.
X-Men (To Be Announced)
According to the sources, Marvel is also planning to bring an X-Men movie which will be similar to the fantastic four. As we know series like Loki and WandaVision have already shown us the concept of the multiverse or alternate dimension and we also saw in Loki that the multiverse is now in chaos. So Marvel might introduce some mutants on their next project.
Deadpool 3 (To Be Announced)
— Bitching Films (@bitchingfilms) December 28, 2021
Ryan Reynolds announced in December 2019, that Deadpool 3 is in development and Deadline tells that after Ryan Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin, both Marvel studio and Ryan agreed to hire them to write the third installment of the movie. There are also rumors that Spider-Man and Daredevil will make a cameo on Deadpool 3.
While the writer for Deadpool’s next story has already been hired still we can’t expect to see the movie soon as Ryan is very busy shooting other movies and has a really tight or busy schedule. As per the information we got, Marvel will start shooting the third installment of the movie in 2022 and hopefully, we might get to watch the movie in 2023.
The Hulk (To Be Announced)
The Reddit post also mentions ‘Bruce flying off in a spaceship.’ This will most likely tease The World War Hulk film that leakers reported a few months ago. pic.twitter.com/h35KgloL2d

According to GWW, we might see the Hulk-related movie in a few next years. GWW also reported that the movie is currently being called “World War Hulk” and Marvel will start its production in late 2022. It seems that the movie will follow the events of the upcoming Disney+ Marvel series She-Hulk.
