The MCU has plenty of irons in the fire as the first year of Phase 4 sees its third movie. Here’s what to keep in mind.
We can now say that Marvel’s Phase 4 is well and truly underway after four TV shows and three movies all dropping within the same year. Still, the sheer volume of MCU content that has been released this year makes the fact that we really don’t have a ton of information about Phase 4 all the more baffling. We still don’t know which (if any) team will form to replace the decimated Avengers, we don’t know who of the newly introduced villains will be the biggest threat, and we don’t know how the multiverse will come into play.
To top it all off, we still have one more show and one more movie around the corner–Hawkeye, premiering at the end of this month on Disney+ and Spider-Man: No Way Home hitting theaters in December.
Despite these continued mysteries, The Eternals did provide some clues–and some pertinent information–as to our own ongoing understanding of Phase 4. The questions may not be completely answered–and in fact, there are even more in the mix now–but we are able to see more of the big picture now that these new characters have entered the MCU officially. So, with that in mind, we broke down some of the biggest new concepts, information, and potential clues Eternals put in the spotlight for the rest of Phase 4.
