Marvel is said to be unhappy with Phase 4, considering the major slate changes for Phase 5-6
Marvel Studios may be making some massive changes to the Phase 5 and 6 lineups after the negative reception to some of the content in Phase 4.
There’s no denying that this is the first phase of new MCU content yet-Avengers: Endgame were mixed. While projects like Black Panther: Wakanda Forever And the Spider-Man: No way home It was widely praised, as were the films eternal And the Thor: Love and Thunder Missed the mark for many.
Many feel this is due to Marvel Studios and Disney’s focus on quantity over quality, especially when it comes to using Disney+ as a storytelling tool. Almost every new MCU show has had reactions ranging all over the place, with She-Hulk: Attorney at Law And the The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Bear the brunt of negativity.
Now, after the lukewarm reception to Phase 4, and the firing of former Disney CEO Bob Chapek, Marvel Studios is looking to make some changes.
MCU Multiverse Saga Shuffle on the Way?
A new report from The Cosmic Circus sources reveals how Marvel Studios may face some big changes following the return of Bob Iger as CEO at Disney and the negative reviews Phase 4 has received from fans and critics.
Many believe that the past two years of Marvel content have been lukewarm and that the studio is prioritizing quantity over quality.
According to Cosmic Circus and the outlet’s sources, Marvel themselves have picked up on those concerns about Phase 4’s general approach. So far, “As a precautionary measure to ensure quality control,” Both Marvel and Disney Re-evaluate future releases. From stage 5 onwards it is not actually produced.
Their sources say that Marvel Studios is hoping to vet its future projects with extra quality to avoid the problems it encountered in Phase 4.
They note that it is one step behind being considered by Marvel and Disney Developing a kind of creative oversight on future releases of the MCU for “Establish more quality control going forward.”
Cosmic Circus also reiterated how they’ve heard the specials gain more momentum behind the scenes as a way to pitch more potential projects moving forward.
It’s worth noting that even with any changes, Phase 5 will likely have a similar amount of releases as Phase 4, assuming nothing already announced has been cancelled.
The thing is, fans shouldn’t expect Marvel Studios to start ramping up their production even more than what the studio is currently doing.
What will change in phases 5 and 6?
After hearing this news, there is probably one question on the mind: What changes to expect?
As Cosmic Circus has pointed out, any outright cancellations of the Disney+ series or theatrical films are unlikely. Changes in shape are most likely, as are common nova Move from a Series to a Special Presentation or Shield Wars Transition from show to movie.
Looking at the year 2024, only two series are known: Agatha: A cove of chaos And the Daredevil: Born Again. The Charlie Cox Show even has 18 episodes, which means it will run for a good portion of the year.
After that, they were the only two projects that seemed to still be in the works as shows vision quest And the miracle man. Currently, it is unknown if they are part of Phase 5 or Phase 6.
It is difficult to say whether this will result in fewer offers overall or fewer new IP addresses. For example, while there may not be many newly introduced series, there will be more room for Marvel to explore second seasons for characters like Ms. Marvel or Moon Knight.
With the amount of content Marvel Studios has access to, some may not be able to help but feel that the MCU won’t be able to build everything it needs to in time. Avengers: Secret Wars.
Whatever happens, this is a good move for Marvel Studios. Phase 4 has been a mixed bag for many, and a reassessment like this should help reassure fans that the company cares about the end products it pushes out.
