Where we were once in the endgame, we’re now in the Multiverse Saga with Marvel’s SDCC 2022 Panel debuting plans up until 2025.
We’re actually never going to catch a break from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We’re still here even while Phase 4 severely lacked the spark that gripped us in the first place. Our grandchildren might never catch a break either. Is it too much? A little. Are we still invested? Tragically.
That said, Marvel’s SDCC 2022 Panel hosted by ScreenRant’s delightful Ash Crossan was jam-packed with news that can be hard to keep up with if you aren’t refreshing your phone every minute (and even for this sitting in Hall H). We’ve rounded up the top things we learned and where to find the best coverage for them.
First, following the wings of the adorable Ms. Marvel is Tatiana Maslany’s She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. And while the initial trailer prompted hesitations, knowing Maslany’s commitment to whatever role she’s in, we’re bound to adore this series no matter where the plot goes.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law premieres on August 17, exclusively on Disney+.
Marvel’s SDCC 2022 panel also gave viewers a tentative Spring 2023 release day for Secret Invasions, starring Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. The series will also see the return of Cobie Smulders’ Agent Maria Hill. Ben Mendelsohn will also reprise his role as Talos.
Following the theatrical release of Thor: Love and Thunder, Marvel’s next blockbuster will be the long-awaited and emotionally heartwarming Wakanda Forever.
Wakanda Forever will release in theaters on November 11, 2022.
Paul Rudd returns as Scott Lang in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, meeting Kang the Conqueror while kicking off Phase 5. The film will also likely showcase Cassie, Scott’s daughter as Stature.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania releases in theaters on February 17, 2023.
Our favorite space misfits (and hopefully Thor) are set to return in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. We might see baby! Rocket, and that’s enough to keep us invested as well as what’ll happen when we see this Gamora joining the ranks. Update: later announced, The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 releases in theaters on May 5, 2023.
The God of mischief returns to cause chaos once more, facing the end of a TVA that’s no longer what it used to be, characters who have no memory of who he is, and a villain who won’t be easy to stop. Loki Season 2 is set to premiere in the Summer of 2023, exclusively on Disney+.
While no concrete dates have been announced, like Loki Season 2, Echo, following the life of Maya Lopez will premiere sometime in the Summer of 2023. Alaqua Cox was the standout character since her debut in Hawkeye, quickly making Echo one of the most anticipated series.
Arriving late next year, Mahershala Ali is set to star in Blade. While there’s still very limited information on the film, Ali is unstoppable as actor, which undoubtedly means his contribution in the MCU will be noteworthy.
Blade releases in theaters on November 3, 2023.
We’re confident we will adore Dominique Thorne’s Riri Williams when she makes her debut in Wakanda Forever, but we’re also certain that her solo series in Ironheart will be a fan favorite. The series arrives in Fall of 2023.
She’s back and likely more chaotic than ever. Kathryn Hahn will reprise her role as Agatha Harkness in Agatha: Coven of Chaos. The last we saw of the character, Wanda Maximoff had banished her to a seemingly never-ending cycle as her Westview alter-ego. The series will arrive in the winter of 2023.
When Charlie Cox reappeared as Matt Murdoch in Spider-Man: No Way Home, we all collectively lost it, wanting nothing more than to see the lawyer return as his alter ego, Daredevil. The time has now come, and the series, Daredevil: Born Again will premiere in the Spring of 2024.
The world could never get enough of Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson, and we not only have a title for his solo feature but a premiere date as well. Sam Wilson taking up Captain America’s shield is one of the MCU’s best decisions. Though we didn’t get nearly enough of it in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, we’ll hopefully see him shine as he always should have.
Captain America: New World Order releases in theaters on May 3, 2024.
A new group of heroes that will seemingly involve Zemo and Yelena Belova? Maybe? Yes? No. That’s all we want to know.
Thunderbolts releases in theaters on July 26, 2024.
I’m among the maybe two people in the world who loved the 2005 Fantastic Four. But sure, I get it; we need a new one. I am throwing in my hat for Emily Blunt as Sue Storm and John Krasinski as Reed Richards.
Fantastic Four releases in theaters on November 8, 2024.
Despite the disjointed angles of Phase 4, it’s nice to have confirmation of the fact that we’re going somewhere and who our “big bad” is supposed to be. The next installment of The Avengers is coming to our screens in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. At this point we’re in Phase 6, and perhaps things will start to make a bit more sense.
Avengers: The Kang Dynasty will release in theaters on May 2, 2025
But that’s not the end of it, there’s more to the new Avengers coming soon in Avengers: Secret Wars.
Avengers: Secret Wars will release in theaters on November 7, 2025

Marvel’s SDCC 2022 Panel debuted way more than anyone can keep up with, but having a concrete plan of where we’re going and what we’ll see is exciting. As more announcements roll in during D23 this year, we’ll be one step closer to the end.
