Here’s What is Coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe Through 2027 [Updated]

The Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to tell stories of our favorite heroes, as it has done for over a decade. As the MCU continues to move forward, the stories continue to expand with new heroes, new villains, and new places they are in conflict. Recently, fans saw a fight that could have multidimensional impacts in the Quantum Realm followed by the heart-wrenching Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. There are a lot more stories on the way.

At this point, the leadership at Marvel Studios under the direction of Kevin Feige has plotted out its big pictures story arc for Phase 5 and Phase 6 in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This will take movie-goers into 2027 and Avengers: Secret Wars.
