Sometime in Spring 2023, Secret Invasion series will be released on Disney+ which stars Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, alongside Ben Mendelsohn (the Skrull Talos), Don Cheadle (James Rhodes), and Martin Freeman (Everett K. Ross). It is stated that Secret Invasion will preview a dark and gritty political thriller, contributing to a larger anti-heroic thread that seems to run through Phase 5.

The third and final installment of Guardians of the Galaxy will be released within Phase 5 in May 2023. James Gunn, the director of the movie stated, "Some stories have an end, doesn't mean everyone dies."
