Marvel Studios did not disappoint fans with its reveals and announcements of upcoming projects at its Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con ’22. Not only did president Kevin Feige surprise the audience by revealing that the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 4 is nearly over, but he revealed Phases 5 and 6. Perhaps the biggest news of the event was that Phases 4-6, officially named the “Multiverse Saga”, will culminate in two Avengers films in 2025 entitled Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars.
Of course, Marvel Studios and Feige are now being bombarded with questions about the MCU’s future, specifically regarding the new information given at SDCC. Feige discussed one of the MCU’s most defining elements with Comicbook.com after the panel. When asked about how Marvel Studios plans to use its projects’ famous post-credits scenes to build up to The Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars, Feige had this to say:
The truth is, all of the tags are never just about the future. There are tags that are eating shwarma, Captain America saying you know you gotta learn patience, sometimes, you know, you wait for something that’s not worth it. So they are always fun for us. We don’t want everything to feel the same. So some of the tags will connect and some of them won’t. Some of the films and shows will connect; some of them won’t. I think it’s just as important that we can have standalone introductory stories like Ms. Marvel, like Moon Knight, in addition to things that interconnect and build towards the larger story. A lot of what we’ve been doing has been building to this larger story, obviously with The Kang Dynasty and the Multiverse Saga, and now I think people will, I hope, come along for the ride. Both where it’s you’re on the express train to the finale, also when it’s fun, as many of our Phase 1, 2 and 3 films were.Kevin Feige
Feige is not one to give away any major surprises or specific tidbits about upcoming post-credits scenes, but his quote seems to indicate that the MCU’s post-credits scenes will remain relatively status quo to what fans have seen thus far. With a multiverse focus, though, it would not be surprising if these scenes ultimately become extremely helpful in tying different projects, some standalone, to the overarching storyline of the Multiverse Saga.
