Now that the Infinity Saga is out of the way and Spider-Man: Far From Home has seemingly ended both Phase 3 and Tom Holland's Spider-Man's time in the MCU, it's time to look to the future. While that will inevitably be tinged with sadness at the permanent loss of characters like Tony Stark, Captain America and now Spider-Man, there are lots of things to look forward to in Phase 4.
There are still lots of MCU veterans returning - even some who have already been killed off - and a raft of new and very exciting new characters and it's still a great time to be a Marvel fan. As if it ever wasn't.
So the question now is who is on the roster for Phase 4, where they'll turn up and what we can expect from them. Behold, our comprehensive look at every single character already confirmed for Marvel's Phase 4...
70. Loki (Tom Hiddleston) - Loki & What If?
You can't get rid of Loki. He's already been banished in Thor, arrested in The Avengers, "died" in Thor: The Dark World, and actually died in Avengers: Infinity War and his TWO appearances in Phase 4 follow his first post-humous appearance in Avengers: Endgame.
That Endgame appearance sets up Loki's biggest role in Phase 4 in his own Disney+ series, which will apparently see him jumping around important time periods while dealing with the fallout of the failure of his invasion plan. The good news is, he's still going to be the evil Loki who ended The Avengers, rather than the tamer version we got as audience affection turned him into a sort of anti-hero and then a babyface eventually later.
For What If?, it appears that there's going to be a Sakaar set storyline because The Grandmaster, Thor, Korg and the Hulk are all involved, so it would make sense that he turns up there too. How many people will be hoping that he also turns up in Thor 4 too cheekily?
