In 2019, Marvel Studios unveiled its slate of films throughout Phase 4. It is unclear if the slate unveiled in Hall H was all of Phase 4 or if titles which came later like Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and The Marvels are a part of the same phase or if they will be launching Phase 5. Some clarity on the subject might be presented at San Diego Comic-Con later this month. However, the 2019 presentation featured Thor: Love and Thunder as the last title announced and now the fourth Thor film has been released. With all of the titles from 2019’s Marvel Studios panel at Comic-Con having been released, it is time to rank them with Phase Zero,
Black Widow was the first film released for Phase 4, following Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home (which was billed as an epilogue to Phase 3 and the Infinity Saga) after delays throughout 2020. Widow was followed by Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings which was followed by Eternals which was followed by Spider-Man: No Way Home, completing the 2021 slate of movies. 2022 has now seen the releases of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder, Sony’s Morbius is not included in the ranking as it is not an MCU film.
