“As we approach the end of Phase 4, I think people will start to see where this next saga is going,” Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige told Total Film recently.
“I think there have already been many clues, which are at least apparent to me, as to where this whole saga is headed. But we’ll be a little more direct about that in the coming months, to lay out a blueprint, so that audiences who want to see the bigger picture can see a tiny bit more of the roadmap.
Two very obvious panels in the coming months are Thor: Love and Thunder on July 8 and D23 Expo 2022, which runs from September 9-11. Marvel will be at the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con 2022, but will likely have some big reveals in store for September.
Specifically, on September 10, Expo D23 will feature filmmakers, celebrities, surprise guests, and Marvel Studios representatives at 10 a.m. to showcase the division’s theatrical and Disney+ titles. The presentation will include exclusive images and a preview of what Marvel has in the works.
Many have speculated about the direction of Pandora’s box of storylines opened up by the multiverse. The reflection centered around a massive 12-issue event in the comics known as Secret Wars. Secret Wars involves the X-Men, Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, Deadpool, and the Avengers. The mid-’80s Marvel series is also a favorite of the two men who concluded the studio’s Phase 3 with spectacular success.
“You know, I read that when I was 10 or 11, and it was on the scale of bringing all the heroes together. It was one of the first great books to do that – it was really the best of event storytelling for me. And what happens when you put all these personalities together,” Joe Russo explained in 2020. Anthony and I love complicated relationships between heroes and villains, we love villains who believe they’re heroes in their own stories, so it’s all kind of baked into this notion of secret wars. on the scale of Infinity War was directly linked to the Secret Wars dream, which is even bigger.
Anthony Russo was more blunt: “It would be the biggest movie you could imagine, so that’s what really excites us about the story – the ambition of this one is even bigger than the ambition of the Infinity saga.”
Feige, when asked about rumors of a Secret Wars Phase 4 finale, played coy.
“I saw those rumors too. Why is everyone talking about it now? That’s what I want to know,” Feige said late last year. “I think one person writes about it, then another person writes about it, then everyone writes about it, and then it happens.”
Still, the Secret Wars saga would be a great way to tie together all the current storylines and synergize the combined assets of the Marvel movie. For example, Spider-Man and the X-Men are now part of Disney’s MCU – the first of which just proved its might at the box office with Spider-Man: No Coming Home nearly $2 billion worldwide. Each of the studio’s next five films – and virtually every show planned for Disney+ – involves at least one Avenger. Dead Pool 3 is under construction. Oh, and there’s a good chance a Fantastic Four movie will finally happen in this cycle.
