There’s no denying how big an event is Avengers: Endgame was in pop culture. The culmination of more than a decade of storytelling on the big screen was one of the greatest achievements in modern cinema. It really is a miracle that it exists. Once all was said and done, Marvel Studios officially named it the Infinity Saga.
The label certainly fits with all the years audiences have spent following the storylines of the Infinity Stones and the Mad Titan with the aim of harnessing their powers. But what’s next?
Phase 4 was an interesting if not a mixed bag of results. The amount of content that has been released is staggering, but some fans still aren’t sure where it’s all headed.
Now, at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, Marvel Studios has officially announced the label for its next big story initiative — and it might not come as a surprise.
The Multiverse Saga of the MCU is here
During Marvel Studios’ Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, company president Kevin Feige officially announced the name of the next saga of the MCU: the Multiverse Saga.
This probably won’t surprise many, as the Multiverse has been a big focus in Marvel’s recent projects. Many might even argue that it was a bigger focal point than the Infinity Stones were at the start of their Saga.
Feige also revealed that The Multiverse Saga will feature all content from Phase 4 through Phase 6, which ends with Avengers: Secret Wars on November 7, 2025.
Will the Multivere Sage surpass the Infinity Saga?
Ever since Phase 4 was announced, fans knew the Multiverse would play an important role in the proceedings. After all, there was a movie titled Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness on the release list.
Now, broaching most Marvel projects — or at least, that’s how it feels. Loki opened up the potential to have these alternate realities in the first place, What if…? explored other timelines, Spider-Man: No Way Home tore heroes and villains in Earth-616, and Multiverse of madness gave Wanda a Multiversal killing spree.
Many believe this is all leading to a major conflict with Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror, a character first seen in Loki, or at least one of its variants was. There are also plenty of rumors about a Secret Wars project, which would adapt a storyline most recently dealing with the utter collapse of the Multiverse.
Hopefully this next Saga of the MCU can achieve at least a fraction of what a movie likes Avengers: Endgame deducted. In the right circumstances, it can eventually grow larger.
