2020 will be the first year since 2009 that no Marvel Studios movies will be released in cinemas. The reason for that is obvious, and a bunch of highly anticipated titles were recently shifted around for 2021 debuts. WandaVision is still on the way to Disney+ this year, but the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline has now been shifted.

Throw in rumours and potential spoilers which are doing the rounds online, and it's fair to say that Phase 4 is laying the groundwork for a Phase 5 that promises to be bigger, better, and nothing short of epic.
Phase 4 is all about introducing new characters and ideas - there's not even a new Avengers movie! - but, as you'll see in this feature, Marvel Studios is planting seeds which promise to come to fruition in ways that promise to make the Infinity Saga look like it was little more than a warm up act...
