Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 4: The full list of release dates – CNET


Doctor Strange 2 lands May 6.


The Super Bowl brought a swathe of trailers, including a new look at Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The trailer, while probably nonsensical to those who haven’t seen WandaVision and Spider-Man: No Way Home, promises horror influences and the trippiest of hellscapes. Sam Raimi is the director after all.

Before the Doctor Strange sequel on May 6, there’s one other Marvel title to look forward to. Ahead of Moon Knight’s first trailer release, Marvel revealed when we can watch the latest superhero series to hit Disney Plus.

Mark your calendars for March 30, which sees the Oscar Isaac-starring show keep the Wednesday night slot used by Marvel series before it.

Last November’s Disney Plus Day confirmed the rumored Agatha Harkness spinoff, as well as a Hawkeye spinoff centered on new character Echo. The announcements come after Disney delayed not one, not two, but five Marvel movies.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Captain Marvel sequel The Marvels, and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania have all been delayed by months. Ms. Marvel, which had originally been looking at a late 2021 release, is now set for summer 2022, according to the Disney Plus Day announcements.

Though Doctor Strange 2 (May 6), Thor 4 (July 8) and Black Panther 2 (Nov. 11) are still slated for 2022, Captain Marvel 2 has been pushed into 2023, taking Ant-Man 3’s initial Feb. 17 spot. Ant-Man 3 moves back nearly half a year, to July 28, 2023, and will now be released after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which keeps its May 2023 release date.

Disney previously announced a schedule including four untitled Marvel movies for 2023 and 2024. Aside from Fantastic Four, speculation pointed to possible Phase Five films Deadpool 3, Blade, a Captain America sequel and X-Men.

But now two of those untitled Marvel movies have been removed from the schedule, and just to shake things up even more, another’s been nudged forward by a week to Nov. 3, 2023. It appears Disney is parceling out three Marvel movies in 2022 and four in 2023, which might, just might, lead to earlier than expected releases for Disney Plus shows.

Below, you’ll find the MCU’s Phase Four (and Phase Five?) release slate, including Disney Plus TV shows.
