Earlier today, Marvel released a promo clip reminiscing on the movies that they've already released as well as teasing all of their upcoming projects for the long-awaited Phase Four of the MCU. This teaser kicks off with an oh-so-familiar narrator saying some heartwarming words about this cinematic universe and what it means to him. When talking about the franchise he says, "That world may change and evolve. But the one thing that will never change, we're all part of one big family." If you haven't guessed it, our narrator is Marvel mastermind Stan Lee.

His inspirational speech coupled with various clips from earlier phases of the MCU make for a beautiful sentiment. Marvel even adds in one clip from the opening night of "Avengers: Endgame," and it includes some boisterous audience reactions. After showing breathtaking moments from MCU's past, the video adds in the iconic Marvel intro before showing small previews for all of the upcoming films. With each film comes an official title and release date. Here's the current slate for Phase Four of Marvel.

  1. "Black Widow" - July 9, 2021
  2. "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" - September 3, 2021
  3. "Eternals" - November 5, 2021
  4. "Spider-Man: No Way Home" - December 17, 2021
  5. "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" - March 25, 2022
  6. "Thor: Love and Thunder" - May 6, 2022
  7. "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" - July 8, 2022
  8. "The Marvels" - November 11, 2022
  9. "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" - February 17, 2023
  10. "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3" - May 5, 2023

Seeing that we'll have another Marvel film hitting theaters in July has us very excited to head back to the movies! Don't get us wrong, there have been a lot of great films to come out during the pandemic. But truthfully, when you have a craving for an MCU flick, there's no substitute that will suffice. One of the most popular superhero movies we've seen as of late was "Zack Snyder's Justice League," but even that DCEU film pales in comparison to the best Marvel films. The closest thing we've been able to binge since Marvel's film slate was delayed has been their various series on Disney+. Nevertheless, we're always ready to relive some Marvel movie moments, and more ready to experience some new ones! Check out Marvel's new Phase Four promo video below.
