Although Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic
Universe was supposed to kick off this past July with Spider-Man: Far From Home, Phase 4 of
the MCU doesn’t actually commence until next year. Next May, to be a bit more precise.
While this shared realm of Marvel characters has delivered
23 movies to date, Phase 4 will add another six to that number. And not only
that, but Phase 4 will seemingly play out on the small screen, too, as several
Disney+ shows will help the larger Phase 4 narrative push forward.
In terms of the silver screen, Phase 4 will consist of Black
Widow, The Eternals, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, a Spider-Man:
Far From Home sequel, and then Thor: Love and Thunder. For those wondering who The
Eternals or Shang-Chi are, fear not, because the Guardians of the Galaxy weren't exactly well known, and look where they are today.
Taking a look at the landscape of the MCU right now and the
possibilities that Phase 4 serves up, here are eight moments that we need to
see happen during this next run of Marvel Studios releases.
