Marvel Phase 4 Breakdown

by T. Mack

Marvel Studios has announced their plans for Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Though, technically, the universe isn’t simply cinematic any more. It now features TV shows on the upcoming Disney Plus streaming service that are directly connected to the films. While there have been Marvel shows on TV during the previous Phases (see the Netflix Marvel series Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, plus Agents of Shield on ABC and Cloak & Dagger on FreeForm), this will be the first time the TV shows have been announced in conjunction with the films and touted the same characters and actors that were featured in the movies. The official slate for Phase 4 was announced last month during San Diego Comic Con 2019 and I’ve got the complete breakdown and lots of details for you right here.
