The Don Of Marvel Kevin Feige Explains The Purpose Of Phase 4

Marvel Studios CEO Kevin Feige explains the main goal of introductions in the MCU's Phase 4 at the world premiere of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

From Shang-Chi to She-Hulk, new heroes and villains have emerged in Phase 4 of the MCU. At the same time, there have been moments that have shaken the MCU's foundation to its core, such as Disney+'s Loki's multiverse shenanigans, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.


The mix of emotional responses following Thanos' epic battle at the end of Phase 3 is what connects each film and Disney+ show. "Phase Four is all a reaction -- and I don't mean on our part as filmmakers, I mean the characters," Marvel Studios producer Richie Palmer explained. "It's a reaction to the trauma of Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. We're still feeling those effects in these movies years later."

The MCU's mastermind spoke on the red carpet at the world premiere of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever about the sequel's expansion of the Wakandian nation and the introduction of Namor. Because Wakanda Forever is the final entry in Phase 4, Feige explained why this chapter of the Multiverse Saga was crucial for the MCU's major setups.


"The reason this anchors Phase 4 and The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, which is coming out soon," Feige explained, "is because the phases are all about introductions." "Phase 4 has been... think of all the characters we've met here and now finally in the finale here of Phase 4 looking at it by phases, we meet an entirely new kingdom, and an entire character who is the very foundation of what we do at Marvel," he continued.

The themes of new heroes taking up the mantle from the fallen ones as new threats emerge will continue in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. It will address T'Challa's tragic death, which mirrors actor Chadwick Boseman's untimely death in 2020, the impending war between Wakanda and Atlantis, and the rise of a new Black Panther. Meanwhile, James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special has been confirmed as the epilogue of Phase 4, which will take place between Thor: Love and Thunder and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which will be released in theaters in 2023.
