One of the most highly anticipated movies in Phase 5 is Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The movie will be a sequel to the wildly successful Black Panther, which grossed over $1 billion worldwide.

Unfortunately, actor Chadwick Boseman, who played the titular character, passed away in August 2020. The movie is set to honor his legacy by exploring other characters from Wakanda.

Fantastic Four

The Fantastic Four are a group of superheroes who gained their powers after being exposed to cosmic radiation.
