From 2008 to 2019, Marvel Studios released 23 feature films in its Infinity Saga, the most ambitious cohesive storytelling endeavor ever mounted by a single studio.
From 2021 to 2022, Marvel Studios released 17 movies and streaming titles in just Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the first act what studio chief Kevin Feige has christened the Multiverse Saga.
The abrupt explosion in Marvel content is a direct result of the launch of Disney+, of course, and the mandate to populate Disney’s streaming service with a regular pipeline of episodic TV series within the MCU. That’s also dramatically accelerated the pace of Marvel’s storytelling: When the Multiverse Saga — which will span at least 37 titles across feature films and TV series (live-action and animation) — concludes in May 2026 with “Avengers: Secret Wars,” it will have spanned roughly half the time as the Infinity Saga.
Phase Four contained an eclectic wealth of content, including legacy characters stepping from film to streaming — including “WandaVision,” “Loki” and “Hawkeye” — sequels to massive Marvel film franchises — including “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” and “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” — and brand new characters making their debuts in both film and TV — including “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” “Ms. Marvel” and “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.”
Further on the horizon: sequels to “Ant-Man” with director Peyton Reed, “Guardians of the Galaxy” with director James Gunn, “Captain Marvel” with director Nia DaCosta, “Captain America” with director Julius Onah, and “Deadpool” with stars Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman and director Shawn Levy; as well as long-anticipated reboots of “Blade” with actor Mahershala Ali and “Fantastic Four” with director Matt Shakman.
On Disney Plus, we’ll see adaptations of “Secret Invasion” with Olivia Colman and Samuel L. Jackson; a “WandaVision” spinoff starring Kathryn Hahn and a “Hawkeye” spinoff starring Alaqua Cox; a revival of Netflix’s “Daredevil” series; and second seasons of “Loki” and “What If…?”
There are also several more titles in development, including a show set in the Kingdom of Wakanda, a “Wonder Man” TV series, and a second “WandaVision” spin-off featuring Paul Bettany’s Vision (or his ghostly doppelgänger).
And after the debut of “What If…?”, multiple animated titles are on their way to Disney Plus, including Marvel Studios’ first swing at “X-Men” following Disney’s acquisition in 2019 of 20th Century Fox.
For Feige and his team of creative executives at Marvel Studios, the MCU’s post-“Avengers: Endgame” slate represents the most aggressive creative expansion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2012’s “The Avengers” re-defined what was possible with superhero storytelling.
Here is everything that’s in store — that we know about.
