The topic “Marvel’s Phase 5 Slate Announces 3 New Release Dates” has two versions, a written version, and a video version below the written version.
Marvel Studios’ Phase 5 projects are rumored to have a few release dates.
Due to the recently concluded writers’ strike and the ongoing actors’ strike, Marvel had to delay several movies and TV shows from the Multiverse Saga of the MCU that is ever-expanding.
Although the strikes were just one of the reasons behind this decision, it has left many fans wondering when their favorite MCU heroes will return to action in both Phase 5 and the upcoming Phase 6.
New MCU Phase 5 Release Dates
Marvel has recently filed for copyright and has revealed an approximate release date window for three upcoming MCU projects from Phase 5 that will be available on Disney+.
However, none of these dates have been officially confirmed by Marvel Studios, and they may face delays due to the ongoing actors’ strike or other factors that could cause delays.
Agatha: Darkhold Diaries – September 19, 2024
Agatha: Darkhold Diaries, a spin-off of WandaVision, was initially scheduled for a Winter 2023/24 release date at San Diego Comic-Con 2022. However, it has undergone several changes during production, including two title changes and a delay in release beyond 2023 due to Disney’s mass round of delays.
According to recent reports, Darkhold Diaries is now expected to be released in September 2024. The copyright suggests that the series will have nine episodes and may run for either eight or nine weeks, leading right into Halloween 2024. This will give fans something spooky to watch on the scariest night of the year.
Spider-Man: Freshman Year – November 2, 2024
Marvel Studios’ animation department faced several issues during the production of Spider-Man: Freshman Year, causing the release timeframe to remain uncertain. However, the show’s leading characters were recently unveiled at Comic-Con 2022, which is the first official update provided since its initial announcement.
The release date for the show has not been announced yet, and it is unclear whether it will coincide with Darkhold Diaries or not. Nevertheless, as news about the cast of the show keeps coming out, it is hoped that production is finally progressing and the show will soon be available for the audience.
Ironheart – September 3, 2025
The movie Black Panther: Wakanda Forever introduced Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams, who later became known as Ironheart. Her own solo series, Ironheart, had been announced earlier at Comic-Con, but it has faced several issues behind the scenes that caused delays.
Initially, the series was supposed to debut in Fall 2023. However, it has been postponed and is now scheduled to release in September 2025 on Disney+. This means that there will be a gap of almost three years before we get to see the character who is set to continue the legacy of Iron Man. With new characters like Sacha Baron Cohen as Mephisto being introduced in the show, fans are eagerly waiting to see what happens next.
BONUS: Daredevil: Born Again – 2025
Daredevil fans eagerly anticipating the release of the Born Again series on Disney+ in Spring 2024 may have to wait longer, as a new report suggests that the show is facing major uncertainty. During the strikes, Marvel fired the show’s writing team and plans to completely overhaul the series to ensure that Daredevil’s story is done justice in the MCU.
As a result, the show’s release will be delayed by at least a year, and fans may have to wait until 2025 to see the Man Without Fear in action. Nevertheless, this move by Marvel Studios to rework the story from the ground up is expected to give Daredevil fans an epic and ground-level adventure, which they were eagerly anticipating.
In the meantime, fans can continue experiencing the MCU on Disney+ with Loki Season 2, whose first three episodes are now available for streaming.
