Marvel Phase 4 isn’t going to be revealed any time soon

If you’re wondering what comes after Avengers 4, expect to be waiting a bit longer.

Speaking at a Spider-Man: Homecoming press junket this past weekend, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige let it be known MCU Phase 4 is happening, but no one is ready to discuss it yet.

I hope [the news comes] after that [Avengers 4]. I think there will be certain elements that start to come about, not the least of which is the already announced release date of the next Spider-Man film. But other than that we’re going to keep it very close to the vest because this is really about focusing on the unprecedented conclusion to a 22-movie overarching narrative.

We know for sure a second Spider-Man is coming as well as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, although the latter does not have a release date as of yet.

Feige went on to give some information about what will happen as the first three phases wrap up.

So much happens in [the 3rd and 4th Avengers movies], as you can imagine, and so much is affected by it that we felt what better person to hold your hand and lead you into the next incarnation of the MCU, in a grounded, realistic manner, than Peter Parker? So, coming out two months after Untitled Avengers, [that’s what] much of what the next Spider-Man film will be about.

It was purposefully done like this. Like how the events of Captain America: Civil War impacted Peter as he was dropped off by Tony and expected to go back to continue his sophomore year, how the hell are the events of Infinity War and Untitled [Avengers] going to affect him as he, yes, goes back to his junior year?

There is no way Marvel will be able to hide the first few films after Avengers 4, but good luck to them!

Here is the schedule as we know it right now.

2017 Disney Films

2018 Disney Films

2019 Disney Films

2020 Disney Films
