At SDCC 2022, Marvel Studios’ Hall H presentation proved every rumor wrong about Kevin Feige waiting for Disney’s D23 Expo to reveal Marvel Cinematic Universe’s future. Instead, Kevin Feige revealed the entire slate of Phase Five of the franchise while also giving us a glimpse at the culmination of the second saga of the MCU, The Multiverse Saga. The presentation revealed new titles such as Captain America: New World Order, Daredevil: Born Again, and Thunderbolts, besides previously announced projects including Blade, The Marvels, and Echo. Before ending the presentation with the panel for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Feige unveiled titles for forthcoming Avengers films, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars.

However, despite the plethora of title reveals, it looks like Marvel Studios isn’t done surprising the fans. During the Marvel Studios On The Floor @ SDCC 2022 YouTube series, Feige said there is a little more to talk about the next leg of MCU’s shared continuity. Hinting at more teases, Feige said,
There’s so much more to discuss and unveil, and we didn’t want to talk about everything today.
Marvel’s plans to make the most of Disney’s D23 Expo may still be in motion. The event slated to be held in September will see Feige retake the stage and talk to fans about his future plans for the long-running franchise. It is possible that he may speak about other titles of Phase Six of the MCU or may give casting updates on other projects that he announced during the SDCC 2022.
What Feige’s Tease Could Mean?
There are many more MCU projects that Marvel has previously hinted at but hasn’t revealed much about them yet.
One of them is Deadpool 3, which is under production with writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick and director Shawn Levy. Ryan Reynolds is set to reprise the titular role from the now defunct X-Men franchise. Talking of X-Men, Feige has kept hidden the details about his Mutants project, which he teased way back in 2019. There is also an ongoing hype for Fantastic Four, which Feige has clarified won’t be an origin story.
Furthermore, the currently blank slate of Phase Six may probably include announcements about the planned Shang-Chi sequel, Armor Wars, Untitled Wakanda Series, a Spider-Man project, or a Kate Bishop project. Feige may use D23 to shed some light on these projects. Earlier, Marvel Studios has also used D23 panels to introduce the audience to the cast of its upcoming projects. Feige may introduce new cast members such as Secret Invasion’s Emilia Clarke to the audience or talk more about Agatha: Coven of Chaos, Daredevil: Born Again, and the team reveals for Thunderbolts.
Moreover, there would be expectations for the release of trailers or first teasers for more projects, such as Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
With the revelation of Phase Six’s culmination, Marvel Studios will most likely expand the universe towards its third segment after the Multiverse Saga. It’s still almost four years away from now, but Marvel has forever planned things for a way ahead. Though it’s unclear what and when the following chapters of the franchise will be about, Feige will surely deliver on his promise for more reveals sooner or later.
