Every upcoming film and TV series in Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe

It’s hard to believe but since Iron Man hit cinemas in 2008, changing the cinematic landscape for years to come, another 30 Marvel films have been released, as well as several TV series. These films, released in four phases over 15 years have made an incredible $26 billion.

Four of the 10 highest grossing films of all time are instalments of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and the franchise shows now signs of slowing down. In fact, this month Phase 5 of the MCU is about to begin with the launch of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania in cinemas.
