All the New Marvel Movies to Look Forward to in 2023 and Beyond


Lauren Rouse, Writer

Marvel movies may have taken a bit of a break during the pandemic, but things are well and truly back on track now.

Phase 4 of the MCU came to a close with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and Phase 5 began with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, but what else is on the slate for Marvel Studios?

Here are all the upcoming Marvel films we have to look forward to.

Every upcoming Marvel movie

Phase 4 Marvel Movies

If you’re still catching up after the series-altering events of Avengers: Endgame, here are the movies in Marvel’s Phase 4 that you’ve missed so far.


Phase 5 Marvel Movies

Moving into Phase 5 of the MCU, we have another packed slate. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is the only movie released in the phase so far, but here’s what you can look out for beyond that:

Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3

Following their brief appearance in Thor: Love and Thunder, the Guardians will return in their third film, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3. James Gunn is returning as the director to cap off the trilogy in what looks like a very emotional adventure.

The Marvel panel at SDCC confirmed that one of the villains will be the High Evolutionary (Chukwudi Iwuji) and that we’ll see a bit of Rocket’s backstory in the upcoming film (including him as a lil baby!). We’ll also be seeing Will Poulter as Adam Warlock, a superhuman being created to destroy the Guardians.

Release date: May 4, 2023


The Marvels

Captain Marvel won’t be the only Marvel in her second film, The Marvels. Brie Larson will be joined by Monica Rambeau (played by Teyonah Parris), who was last seen gaining some epic powers after the events of WandaVision. Iman Vellani will join the cast as the newly crowned Kamala Khan, aka Ms Marvel, after starring in her solo outing on Disney+.

After the post-credits scene of Ms Marvel, we know that the trio of heroes will be dealing with a strange connection between all of their powers. Rumour has it that the film may also be more comedic and with plenty of musical elements. Sign us up.

Release date: November 9, 2023


Captain America: New World Order

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier showed us Sam Wilson’s transition from Falcon to Captain America, meaning the next Cap movie has Anthony Mackie’s name on it.

No plot details so far, but we know that Captain America: New World Order will be directed by Julius Onah with a script by Malcolm Spellman and Dalan Musson.

Tim Blake Nelson’s the Leader is returning for the first time since 2008’s The Incredible Hulk, as is Liv Tyler. TFATWS stars Joaquin Torres (Danny Ramirez) and Carl Lumbly (Isaiah Bradley) are also set to appear.

Release date: May 2, 2024



Marvel announced the antiheroes who would lead its new superhero team Thunderbolts at D23. Julia Louis Dreyfus’ Valentina Allegra de Fontaine will recruit a group of Marvel’s most talented, including Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), Red Guardian (David Harbour), Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen), Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and US Agent (Wyatt Russell).

The Walking Dead’s Steven Yeun will also make his Marvel debut in Thunderbolts, which will be written by the screenwriter of Netflix’s Beef.

Thunderbolts will end Phase 5, so expect it to be an explosive debut for the superhero group.

Release date: July 25, 2024


Phase 6 Marvel Movies


Marvel announced a new Blade movie as the stinger at its Comic-Con presentation in 2019, and years later, we still don’t know that much about it.

Mahershala Ali is still on-board to play the famed vampire hunter, but the movie has recently seen a director drop out and has shifted its release date back to allow for more development time.

The film was originally intended to release as part of Marvel’s Phase 5 slate, but given the latest delay (which puts it after Thunderbolts), it’s possible it will not shift to become part of Phase 6.

Release date: September 6, 2024


Deadpool 3

Deadpool 3 will be the merc with the mouth’s first in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but he’s bringing some of his X-friends along for the ride.

Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman recently broke the internet with their announcement that Deadpool and Wolverine will be teaming up again on-screen. It’s still a couple of years away, but let the excitement begin.

Recent news also indicates that Succession’s Matthew Macfadyen will appear in the film in an undisclosed role.

Release date: November 8, 2024


Fantastic Four

We literally know nothing about Marvel Studios’ take on the Fantastic Four except that it’s happening and it will kickstart Phase 6 of the MCU and that WandaVision’s Matt Shakman will direct.

Will John Krasinski return as Mr Fantastic after his brief cameo in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness? It’s unknown, but it’s safe to say Fantastic Four is the hottest casting ticket in town right now.

Release date: February 14, 2025


Avengers: The Kang Dynasty

We don’t yet know the movies that will fill in the blanks in Phase 6, but we do know that the saga will end with two more Avengers movies, the first of which is titled Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.

The Avengers roster has shifted a bit since the events of Endgame, but safe bets for the new lineup are probably Captain Marvel, Spider-Man, Shang-Chi, Doctor Strange and Captain America. You can also expect Marvel’s new big bad Kang (Jonathan Majors) to appear.

Release date: May 2, 2025


Avengers: Secret Wars

Finalising Phase 6 is Avengers: Secret Wars. A very famous storyline in the comics, Secret Wars sees a conforming of all the different universes into one big “Battleworld.”

Given this is the movie that will end the Multiverse saga, expect it to deal heavily with all the complicated space-time terminology you’ve been desperately trying to keep up with over the past few Phases.

Release date: May 1, 2026


Right, have you got your life planned out for the next few years? I know I have.

Of course, there are also Marvel TV series on Disney+ to factor into all this now too, but that’s a different story.

If you need to catch up on Phases 1-4 so far, you can find them all over on Disney+. Wondering how long all that will take you? We’ve crunched the numbers and figured out exactly how many hours of your life a Marvel binge will take from you.
