We have some new Marvel Phase 5 rumors to ponder in the latest Barside Buzz. These come from the r/MarvelStudiosSpoiler subreddit. Specifically tales from the mod queue. A fairly regular thread where the mods share information they are sent and they are able to verify credentials for. I’ve been keeping an eye on the accuracy of these threads so far and they seem to be the real deal. So here is what was listed in the latest thread.
As always, treat all rumors with a dose of salt until official confirmation.
A source has informed us that Marvel has made concept art showing Harrison Ford’s Red Hulk dressed in attire similar to Bruce Banner’s Joe Fixit alter seen in the pages of The Incredible Hulk. We do not know what project this concept art was created for, nor if it means that Red Hulk will become Joe Fixit or simply dress like him as an easter egg, but the concept art is said to be meant for a film.
**World War Hulk**
World War Hulk is moving forward as a movie.
Liv Tyler is in talks to return as Betty Ross.
Songbird will be in Thunderbolts (Sadie Sink being looked at for the role).
Vision Quest will introduce Viv, Vision’s daughter.
The show will set up the Young Avengers.
Nova is a movie.
The source believes Nova is a “passing of the torch.”
**Wong Series (Inspired by Strange Academy)**
A Wong-centric show that includes America Chavez.
Zelma Stanton, who debuts in Ironheart, should be in the show.
Mephisto scenes were shot under “Agatha: Coven of Chaos” in December for Ironheart.
**Captain America: New World Order**
The Department of Damage Control reportedly has a presence in Captain America: New World Order.
Midnight Sons is a movie.
The Serpent Society will show up in a future project.
Ms. Marvel season 2 and Moon Knight season 2 will both premiere before Avengers: Secret Wars.
**MCU Schedule Changes**
Marvel Studios has made major shifts on their schedule.
What If Season 2 releases in 2024.
Echo releases early 2024.
Agatha: Coven of Chaos will release after Daredevil: Born Again, likely in 2025.
There is also a lengthy description of the new Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania trailer which I have not shared here. Feel free to check the link above if you want that content also.
There are some interested rumors here. Some of them you’ll know are rumors we’ve heard elsewhere and covered already. Well if you regularly check out our Barside Buzz articles anyway. There’s nothing that concerns me or worries me in any this. As always, it will come down to execution which Marvel has a pretty good hit rate with so far. However, Marvel have been less than infallible and not every project is now met with the same levels of enthusiasm of the MCU gone past.
For now, all this remains to be seen. However as said above, these sources have come through previously, so take that as you will.
