The Marvels has been pushed from July to November.


New year, new phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Phase Five kicked off with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, out now in theaters. (The Disney Plus release is currently in the ether.) Part of the Multiverse Saga (beginning with Phase Four and ending with Phase Six), Ant-Man 3 hasn't raked in the most glowing reviews, but Jonathan Majors as villain Kang is a universal highlight.

Look forward to five more Phase Five movies in the coming couple of years, including Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, The Marvels -- which recently pushed its release date from July to November 2023 -- Captain America: New World Order, Thunderbolts and Blade.

As for Phase Five TV shows heading to Disney Plus, look out for season 2 of What If...?, Secret Invasion, season 2 of Loki, Ironheart, Echo, Agatha: Coven of Chaos and Daredevil: Born Again. Yep, it's almost like you've got a lot of homework to do to stay up to date with the MCU.
