Considering that Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is coming to an end Black Panther: Wakanda Forever it makes sense to talk about the productions that will be broadcast in 2023 and that constitute the fifth phase. But the decision to detail each of the series and movies we will see, and even talk about the sixth phase, was unexpected.
When Feige was asked why, the executive explained that he needed to report the benchmark. It’s about letting fans know that everything we’ve seen so far has a purpose and will lead to something specific. In other words, to agree that the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a bit of a mess so far.
Problems with the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe
This is one of the main criticisms, apart from the poor quality of some films and series. There is a clear gap between productions during the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In addition, the growing group of superheroes creates new situations, different priorities and the complexity of having to fit everything into one big story.

May this be the honor Chadwick Boseman deserves. And let the culmination of it all be as exciting a cinematic event as it was. Infinity Wars and Endgame.
