I feel pretty confident saying that the over all theme, the connective theme, of phase 4 is loss and grief. From Spiderman - way too many Spidermans through the holiday special that is coming up, characters are dealing with loss and grief in one way or another. Even She-Hulk goes through the 5 phases of grief over the course of her show as her old life is lost and the new one begins. .

Denial and anger in the first episode. Bargaining when she trying to be She-Hulk but only to be a lawyer, depression up until the Yert, and acceptance at the end when she works with Daredevil and has her final scene on the steps of the court house.

Moonknight is grief over his lost brother and the DID is the consequence of it. Hawkeye is about Mayas lost Uncle, and Clint/Yelenas shared grief of Natasha. Loki and Sylvie's grief of the lives stolen from them. The loss of Cap, the loss of Battlestar, the loss of their new homes and the world they built after the snap. Wanda Vision... yup. Eternals, yup. Shang Chi, yup. Black Widow, yup.


Also Survivors Guilt and Consequences. Indeed just the Price of Victory.

FalconSoldier remains one of my favourites because it addressed Snap and Post-Snap reality.

Something that's MCU-adjacent:

Sony swings its Spider-verse to Amazon with new 'Silk' TV series, more projects in the works - SYFY Wire

Amazon and Sony are swinging into the Spider-Verse together with several television projects inspired by the world of Marvel's friendly neighborhood wall-crawler. Sony owns the screen rights to this particular corner of the Marvel Universe, which encompasses over 900 characters ranging from the iconic to the obscure.

I never realized that Sony had the rights to quite that many characters

Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special is super fun. It’s cool to see what they’ve been up to a bit since Endgame as well.

Spoiler:

Cosmo is great. Not the voice I would have expected for them.

Groot’s new body is weird and uncanny looking, like he’s wearing one of those inflatable muscle suits.

Rocket’s gift from Nebula is Amazing and now I need another special to show that story.

Well... the Guardians of the Galaxy Christmas Special was quite charming. It mostly focuses on Mantis and Drax, and really Mantis has more lines in this than every single appearance she's made in the MCU so far combined. She's tons of fun.

Kevin Bacon's a good sport (Kyra Sedgwick moreso), and even gets to sing at the end. Has the standard James Gunn musical taste, just Christmas themed, and the aliens who don't understand Christmas at the start and their song is fething hilarious. Nebular remains perpetually pissed off at everything, and gets the best line of the night (plus "You can't out run me, Bacon!" ). Even Kraglin gets quite a bit to do, which I liked.

As you could probably tell from the trailers, Groot has grown up quite a bit (deep voice is back) and he doesn't like being a Christmas tree, and Cosmo has both telekinetic powers and a Russian accent, which I suppose makes sense.

Spoiler:
And somehow Nebula [ispoiler]got Bucky's arm, which is impressive, and gave it to Rocket as a gift. He said he'd get it!

And it appears that, from what's happened in the MCU recently, the Guardians (or the Ravagers) purchased Nowhere, from the Collector, which means Thanos didn't kill him! I wonder/hope that factors into Guardians 3 in some way.


There is a post-credit, it is not Gamora related (she does not appear in this), and it's more just for fun than anything else.

Also, hey, a Go-Bot reference. Who'da saw that coming?

You can. During the Sony leaks, the entire contract for Spider-Man and what Sony has the rights to leaked. Everything is on there.

Complicated by the looks of it....Hasbro owns the written word and Bandai the likenesses. So I guess a film company could license from Hasbro if they sufficiently reimaged them though maybe Michael Bay already has the rights as they're part of the Transformers Multiverse.

Was harmless enough, and Drax in a CJ (Christmas Jumper) was awesome sauce, although not sure if I've already lost the Fairy Tale dodging game so early.

Yeah it didn't give me cancer, but I wasn't really rapt with attention or busting a gut laughing.

And yeah I am now of the age where calling a story that is repeatedly said to be about Christmas a 'Holiday' special annoying.

I've celebrated Eid, Dilwale, Hanukkah, Obon and Chinese New Year and never felt any obligation to call them something else. So please call Christmas stuff Christmas.

Yeah, yeah old man yells at cloud, turn off Fox news, there's no war on Christmas, blah, blah, blah...

I was very surprised they dropped the S word, and I am always surprised that Nebula was Amy Pond!

I really, really missed a Stan Lee cameo in this one.

Quake’s MCU Return Heavily Teased By Agents Of SHIELD’s Chloe Bennet - Screenrant

Thanks to a new tweet from Chloe Bennet, she has heavily implied that Agents of SHIELD's Quake is returning to the MCU after replying to a tweet disparaging her acting and doubting that Marvel would bring her back.

LINK

Bennet's tweet does stop short of outright confirming that she is set to play Quake again in the MCU, but the tease is a notable shift from previous comments she's made. Since Marvel Studios has not confirmed any upcoming projects include Quake, it is unclear when and where Chloe Bennet could reprise her Agents of SHIELD character and have a chance to prove her doubters wrong.

Wishful thinking that it would be the same character. Quake in the comics is a mutant. They have the rights to mutants again. And AoS and the marvel TV stuff presents very real continuity issues.

Unless this is just a multiverse thing where the AoS crew come riding in on a flying red convertible to fight Kang.


These are my opinions. This is how I feel. Others may feel differently. This needs to be stated for some reason.

My understanding is that it just started filming. But I think people are only speculating that because Quake was part of Nick Fury's super secret not shield during the comics secret invasion.

I don't know how similar the 2 stories would be.

Going off of this Wikipedia article it does look like Agatha: Coven of Chaos is currently filming while everything else in Phase Five that is live action is either in pre-production or post-production.
