What Marvel Fans Should Expect in Phase 5 of the MCU
Marvel Studios’ Phase Four is now over with the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Although this chapter in the franchise has proven to be the most polarising, its last film includes some of the most important hints about where Phase Five will lead audiences.
Actually, that’s moviegoers and Disney Plus subscribers. The underlying theme of Marvel’s Phase Four may not be anything on the screen, but rather the studio’s efforts to integrate the new miniseries format into the MCU. With it comes a slew of new characters who will almost certainly have roles to play in Phase Five that may have more parallel plots moving forward than any previous point in the Infinity Saga. So, what can supporters expect in the future?
The Multiverse Saga will conclude with the immensely popular Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars tales, however, Phase Four revealed very nothing about how these old and new superheroes will get there. It did, however, establish two major concerns, owing mostly to Loki and the Black Panther sequel. Kang (or He Who Remains) will always come out on top because multiversal hindsight is 20/20. Furthermore, rival political groups on Earth are engaged in a new type of not-so-secret conflict.
