Nowadays, trying to keep up with the release dates of all the upcoming Marvel Studios movies and Disney+ shows is nearly as difficult as keeping track of the story itself. Between a pandemic in 2020 and the Hollywood strikes in 2023, Disney has had to shuffle around all its release dates repeatedly. As a result, the entire Multiverse Saga has been pushed back by at least a year. We will continue to update this page as new projects are announced, but for now, here’s the full list of upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movies and shows with release dates.

MCU Phase 5 release dates

What If…? season 2 | Dec. 22, 2023

  • Director: Bryan Andrews
  • Cast: Jeffrey Wright

The Watcher (Jeffrey Wright) returns to take us on another tour through the multiverse. Once again, we will meet variants of familiar heroes and villains as they lead increasingly unfamiliar lives in their alternate realities. Similar to the first season, there will be nine episodes in season 2, and some of the live-action actors will voice their characters.

Echo | Jan. 10, 2024

  • Directors: Sydney Freeland, Catriona McKenzie
  • Cast: Alaqua Cox, Chaske Spencer, Tantoo Cardinal, Devery Jacobs, Cody Lightning, Graham Greene, Zahn McClarnon, Vincent D’Onofrio

After the events of Hawkeye, former Tracksuit Mafia boss Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox) is now on the run from Kingpin’s (Vincent D’Onofrio) criminal empire. But she can only run for so long until she has to confront her past. This is not only Marvel’s first TV-MA series for Disney+, but it’s also the first show under the Marvel Spotlight banner.

X-Men ’97 | March 20, 2024

  • Directors: Jake Castorena, Chase Conley, Emi Yonemura
  • Cast: Ray Chase, Jennifer Hale, Alison Sealy-Smith, Cal Dodd, JP Karliak, Lenore Zann, George Buza, AJ LoCascio, Holly Chou, Isaac Robinson-Smith, Matthew Waterson, Adrian Hough

Marvel’s revival of X-Men: The Animated Series makes its way to Disney+ on March 20. X-Men ’97 picks up right where the 1990s Fox Kids cartoon left off, following the death of Professor X. Now Magento appears to be in charge as the world turns against the X-Men.

Deadpool & Wolverine | July 26, 2024

  • Director: Shawn Levy
  • Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, Emma Corrin, Morena Baccarin, Jennifer Garner, Matthew Macfadyen, Brianna Hildebrand, Karan Soni

In the first trailer for Deadpool & Wolverine, we learn that Deadpool has attracted the attention of the TVA with his time-traveling shenanigans. Now they want the foul-mouthed, fourth-wall-breaking anti-hero to help them stabilize the multiverse, but he’ll have to make nice with Wolverine if he wants to complete his goal to become “Marvel Jesus.”

Captain America: Brave New World | Feb. 14, 2025

Now that Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) has officially retired, Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) is picking up the shield in his place as the new Captain America. Tim Blake Nelson will reprise his role from The Incredible Hulk as Samuel Sterns, aka The Leader, while none other than Harrison Ford will replace the late William Hurt as Thaddeus ”Thunderbolt” Ross.

In Thunderbolts, CIA director Val (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) recruits a group of supervillains to go on missions for the government. Those reformed and semi-reformed villains include Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), Red Guardians (David Harbour), Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), U.S. Agent (Wyatt Russell), Taskmaster (Olga Kurylenko), and more.

The Fantastic Four | July 25, 2025

  • Director: Matt Shakman
  • Cast: Pedro Pascal, Vanessa Kirby, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Joseph Quinn

Marvel’s First Family makes its long-awaited debut in the MCU in 2025. On Valentine’s Day 2024, Marvel finally confirmed that the main cast will feature Pedro Pascal as Mister Fantastic, Vanessa Kirby as Invisible Woman, Ebon Moss-Bachrach as the Thing, and Joseph Quinn as the Human Torch. In the comics, Reed Richards played a major role in the Secret Wars storyline, so this movie will likely do a great deal to set up the finale of the Multiverse Saga.

Blade | Nov. 7, 2025

  • Cast: Mahershala Ali, Mia Goth, Delroy Lindo, Aaron Pierre

After making waves in Luke Cage on Netflix as Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes, Mahershala Ali is coming back to the MCU as the title character in Blade. This reboot has had its fair share of trouble, from rewrites and delays to director Bassam Tariq exiting the project altogether, but it’s currently on track to hit theaters right in the middle of Phase 6.

Avengers: The Kang Dynasty | May 1, 2026

  • Director: TBA
  • Cast: TBA

Seven years after the Avengers last assembled to defeat Thanos, they will reform again in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. At least, that was the plan, until Jonathan Majors was let go from the MCU. Now, we have no idea what the next Avengers movie will look like.

Avengers: Secret Wars | May 7, 2027

  • Director: TBA
  • Cast: TBA

In the comics, Secret Wars ended the multiverse as readers knew it up to that point. We suspect the same will be true of the movie, but Marvel has not shared any details yet. Rumors claim that characters from any Marvel movie, from Fox’s X-Men films to Sony’s Spider-Man trilogy, are fair game. But how many of them will survive the multiversal war?
