After years as a dominant cultural force, it's safe to say that 2023 was a disappointing year for the Marvel Cinematic Universe – at least as far as its big screen output was concerned.


While the final instalment of James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy proved another hit, the same could not be said for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and The Marvels, both of which were critical and commercial duds.

Those releases and the fact Jonathan Majors has now been dropped by Marvel Studios have forced Kevin Feige to take stock, and there have, consequently, been some major changes to the remainder of Phase 5's release schedule.

If you're struggling to keep up with all those shifting dates, here is your complete guide to the Marvel Cinematic Universe films and TV shows on the way in Phase 5 and Phase 6.
