The highly anticipated announcement from the lineup is none other than the 18-episode Daredevil: Born Again television series, which will see Charlie Cox reprise his role.
This also means fans get to watch Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk, who showed up in the Hawkeye series, again.
Are we getting the new Avengers line-up?
Marvel Studios seemed to be reserving the highly anticipated Avengers 5 film for MCU Phase 6.
With the introduction of the character Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Falcon and the Winter Soldier), it can be surmised that Marvel’s Phase 5 might focus on the villains with Thunderbolts first.
What do we know about MCU Phase 6?

For Phase 6, the first details of the lineup include:
- Fantastic Four (8 November 2024)
- Avengers: Kang Dynasty (2 May 2025)
- Avengers: Secret Wars (7 November 2025)
Marvel also revealed that Phase 4, 5 and 6 will be collectively known as The Multiverse Saga.
Based on the line-up, it seems like Kang the Conqueror will be the main villain in this era (it looks like all the guesses in the Loki series are close!).
More shows coming up
Additionally, Marvel is releasing a host of animated series on Disney Plus over the next few years.
Shows such as What If…? season 2, Marvel Zombies and Spider-Man: Freshman Year are part of the MCU canon.
X-Men ’97 and I Am Groot are allegedly set in separate continuities.
