Avengers: The Kang Dynasty
Release Date: May 2, 2025
Marvel Studios revealed at SDCC 2022 that it was working on not one, but TWO Avengers movies to conclude MCU Phase 6, and while we currently know diddly squat about them, we can glean a bit from the titles that were chosen! First up in May 2025 will be Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, so we can safely assume that Jonathan Majors’ pesky multiverse Variants aren’t going anywhere for the foreseeable future.
The title here is taken from Kurt Busiek’s weird but action-packed 16-part Marvel Comics run from the early 00s, in which Kang successfully takes over the Earth but is eventually defeated by the Avengers. Who will be on the Avengers team that takes a crack at beating back Kang’s invasion? Only time will tell.
Avengers: Secret Wars
Release Date: November 7, 2025
It had long been rumored, and now we know for sure: Avengers: Secret Wars is coming in 2025! However, since there have been a few versions of the Secret Wars saga in Marvel Comics, it’s unclear which story the MCU iteration might follow. It’s entirely possible that it will focus on none of them, of course, but with Fantastic Four kicking off Phase 6 in 2025, we can only imagine the future of the MCU spells Doom. Doctor Doom, that is. We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for cast and story info on this one as its development unfolds!
Release Date: Unknown
Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick return as the writing team tasked with bringing the Merc with a Mouth to the MCU, and frequent Ryan Reynolds collaborator Shawn Levy will direct. What a Deadpool 3 could look like in the interconnected Marvel Cinematic Universe is, of course, anybody’s guess, but if anyone can crack wise about the follies of this kind of corporate synergy, it’s Ryan Reynolds.

Very few details are available on this one at the moment, but Ryan Coogler will develop at least one Wakanda-set TV series for Disney+. Could this have anything to do with that Wakanda Forever title for Black Panther 2? We wrote more about some of the implications of this here.
Reports say that Marvel is also working on Shang-Chi 2, a Spider-Man: Sophomore Year animated series, a Nova project, a Wonder Man project, and another season of X-Men ’97! We’ll keep updating this with new information as it becomes available!
Release date: unknown
Andrew Guest (of the delightful Hawkeye) will serve as head writer/showrunner on a series about Simon Williams, the MCU’s resident superhero celebrity. And yes, Ben Kingsley will show up as Trevor Slattery. That’s…all we know right now, folks. Sorry! We do have some ideas on what Wonder Man’s arrival could do to the wider MCU, though. Read about it here!
