Every MCU Character Confirmed For Phase 4

Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is packed with talent across the upcoming slate of movies and Disney+ shows, so here’s every confirmed cast member and character. After eleven years of build-up to Avengers: Endgame, Marvel Studios is ushering in a new era for the MCU over the next several years. Gone are the days of Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man and Chris Evans’ Captain America leading the shared universe, paving the way for new faces to step up and familiar ones taking on bigger roles.

When originally announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, Marvel Studios confirmed ten projects that would make up the two-year Phase 4. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the drastic shifts in the movie industry, plans for the MCU had to constantly change and adapt to the ever-changing circumstances. 2020 became an unexpected but surprisingly beneficial break for Marvel Studios, as it allowed audiences to process the end of the Infinity Saga and build higher expectations for the MCU’s new slate of movies and Disney+ shows. Starting in February 2021, the Emmy-winning WandaVision kicked off a fresh new era to massive success, followed by The Falcon and the Winter SoldierLokiBlack WidowWhat If…?and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

Although the question of whether to release Phase 4 movies theatrically, on streaming, or a mix of both has presented some hurdles, Disney and Marvel Studios have decided to stick to the current release date, with Eternals, HawkeyeSpider-Man: No Way Home, and Ms. Marvel set to wrap up 2021. Beginning in 2022, an onslaught of Marvel projects will come to theaters and Disney+. These include Moon KnightShe-HulkSecret InvasionIronheart, Armor Wars, and a yet to be titled Wakanda series on the TV front. On the feature films side, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will open 2022, followed by Thor: Love and Thunder, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and The Marvels. One TV special, the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special is reportedly followed by a Halloween special centered around Werewolf by Night. Althouth more movies are bound to be officially added to the list, Phase 4 will continue in 2023 with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in 2023, followed by Echo and Fantastic Four, which don’t have a release date yet.

With such a colossal amount of titles making up the MCU’s Phase 4, a whole new generation of heroes and villains will fill the gap left by the likes of Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, and Chris Evans’ Captain America. This is by no means an easy task, but given the overwhelmingly positive reception characters like Simu Liu’s Shang-Chi, Sophia Di Martino’s Sylvie, and Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova have met, the future looks bright for new and familiar faces alike. Here’s every confirmed Phase 4 actor in upcoming titles and the character they portray.

As all of these MCU Phase 4 projects move forward, it will only be a matter of time before more characters are confirmed. So, even though the confirmed list is huge at the moment, stay tuned for additional confirmations as they roll in.
