MCU: 10 Possible Uses Of The Multiverse In Phase 4 (And Beyond)

Is this how Venom enters the MCU?

Sony Pictures/Marvel Studios

With a handful of major characters now out of the picture, several new franchises (including Shang-Chi and The Eternals) set to debut in the coming years, and the Infinity Saga all wrapped up, we're now at the beginning of the MCU's next chapter, and it won't be long before we start to learn more about its next big overarching narrative.

Excitingly, the latest trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home might have given us some clues in that area by introducing the multiverse. Assuming Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio isn't lying about his story, one of the snaps in Avengers: Endgame tore a hole in the fabric of reality, which has introduced alternate Earths into the MCU's continuity. Mysterio states that he is from Earth-833, while the main MCU timeline is Earth-616.

This development brings with it a ton of tantalising implications for the franchise's future, opening up a near-limitless chest of story possibilities. The MCU could use the multiverse in all sorts of exciting ways, and with Far From Home's release date inching closer by the day, we might see some of these uses being teased rather soon.
