Though cinemas are still closed, Marvel fans are still highly favored this pandemonium. After “Spider-Man: Far From Home” and all the chaos that came with Marvel Cinematic Universe’s (MCU) Phase 3, we’re now slowly going knee-deep into the new era. Even if it took us longer than expected, stans have no choice but to assemble—because TBH, Phase 4’s definitely looking epic.
From “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” to “Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings,” Phase 4 is out here to spoil us. If you’re still preparing your heads like us, we have a couple of steps for you. The MCU has been to infinity—now, they are going even beyond it.
Revisit (or finally pick up) the comics
It might be time for a refresher to help us understand what’s going on or—at the very least—help fill in a few blanks. Since Black Widow is coming up soon, you can start with “Black Widow: S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Most Wanted.” This is a must-read if you want to know more about BAMF Natasha Romanoff.
Nerd out with your fellow Marvel stans
Now is the perfect time to assemble your fellow Marvel stans, organize a Zoom meeting and geek out about Phase 4. We’re sure you’re all full of theories, expectations and speculations. Don’t keep all that bottled up, lay them down on your fellow fans and maybe compare theories and see who gets the closest once the TV series or movie comes out.
Kick it off with “WandaVision” and “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier”
Although we witnessed Vision die in “Avengers: Infinity War,” this six-part mini-series focuses on him and Wanda Maximoff trying to live in a classic sitcom-style setting as two super-powered beings. On the flipside, Sam (who now carries Captain America’s shield) and Bucky finally team up in the Captain America spin-off series.
Rewatch Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 3
Are you Team Cap or Team Iron Man? Arrange an online watch party with other Marvel-heads and relive their epic matchup in “Captain America: Civil War,” along with other fun and jaw-dropping moments across the rest of Phase 3. Whether you’re rooting for Steve Rogers or Tony Stark, by the time you reach “Endgame,” you’ll be cheering for all the good guys as they finally face Thanos.
Indulge in the countless MCU Phase 4 theories
Grab your smartphone and a bag of popcorn because it’s time to dive into the universe of theories surrounding MCU Phase 4. Now is the perfect time to assemble your fellow Marvel stans and organize a Zoom meeting—we’re sure you’re all full of theories, expectations, and speculations. Don’t keep all that bottled up, lay them down on your fellow fans and maybe compare theories and see who gets the closest once the TV series or movie comes out.
