Marvel Reveals 'Avengers' 5 and 6: 'Kang Dynasty' and 'Secret Wars'
Marvel really wants people who've complained about the apparent lack of direction or focus in Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to know there is, in fact, a plan — and yes, the Avengers will be re-assembled. As part of the blitzkrieg of news Saturday during Marvel Studio's Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, and after they had just announced their entire Phase 5 slate, Kevin Feige teed up Phase 6 and announced the titles of "Avengers 4" and "Avengers 5": "Avengers: The Kang Dynasty" followed by "Avengers: Secret Wars." "The Kang Dynasty" will hit theaters on May 2, 2025. "Secret Wars" will follow on Nov.
Feige teased that a Fantastic Four was in development at the end of Marvel’s Comic-Con 2019 session, Disney having just absorbed that part of the Marvel universe via his acquisition of 20th Century Fox and the comic book assets they owned.
A reboot of Fantastic Four is a cherished film for MCU fans. The first two movies in 2005 and 2007, which actually starred Chris Evans as Johnny Storm, were geared toward families; the sequel, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, was actually rated PG. Fox tried to reboot the movie in 2015 with Josh Trank directing, but the production went sideways as did its box office, grossing $56 million domestic, $168M worldwide off a $127M production cost.
While Phase 6 still has plenty of dates to populate into 2025, Feige said that it would end with another two Avengers movies: Avengers: The Kang Dynasty on May 2 of that year, and just six months later Avengers: Secret Wars on November 7.

Feige, when asked by Deadline on the red carpet, wouldn’t further detail the thematic differences between Phase 4, 5 and 6. “It’s still early,” he said.
