As it has always done in previous years, Marvel Studios once again made a splash at the 2022 San Diego Comic Con (SDCC). Head honcho Kevin Feige has announced a slew of films, shows, and projects that would make up Phases 5 and 6 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

This isn’t anything new, but what has netizens absolutely flabbergasted is how many projects are crammed into these two phases (a.k.a. The Multiverse Saga). By the end of 2026, we should have TWO new Avengers films! So of course, netizens deal with these new updates from MCU by making memes.
Too long of a project list
anyone doing a MCU rewatch before avengers secret wars needs to be sent to guantanamo bay

There’s just too much material in the MCU now that it would take so much time to do a rewatch before the next Avengers films in 2026. But someone will probably do a rewatch anyway.
The best boys in almost every film

Despite being largely supporting characters in the film verse, we can expect to see these characters in more movies than others. Fighting!
marvel needs to give wong his own movie at this point https://t.co/Qc5ldKYRfM

Wong deserves his own movie — or even a series like Murdock!
What is up with the stories?
The MCU is evolving. its not just inaccurate to the comics anymore, its also inaccurate TO ITS OWN MOVIES LMFAOOOOOOO https://t.co/rWVf5W6K0y

Case in point: Ant-Man. This is not the character development we asked for and definitely not on the right character.
Where is the DCEU?

The rivalry between these two superhero franchises will probably never end.

This netizen already has too high of an expectation thanks to Robert Pattinson’s Batman.

The latest Batman movie was just *that* good.
A What If scenario

Some people just don’t want anymore, it seems.
Pray for the Marvel Studios staff

That slate of projects is really long, and it’s not even complete . . .

Not to mention, *two* Avengers movies in one year? SOS, says Marvel staff.
We’re coming back for more anyway
Fans: “I’m sorry, but I think I’m done with the MCU. I’m just not feeling Phase Four.”
— Erik Swann (@SwannErik) July 24, 2022
No matter how much fans gripe, they would probably come back for more and watch all of these films and shows. In too deep to leave.
