Captain America 4 Official Title Announced: Captain America: New World Order

Marvel Studios’ History at SDCC
Marvel Studios has returned to San Diego Comic-Con with a bang. The company has a rich history of making massive announcements at San Diego Comic-Con. Still, it has been missing from the convention for the last few years due to COVID and the rise in popularity of Disney’s D23 event. The studios’ last SDCC was in 2019, when they unveiled their plans for Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
With the recent release of Thor Love and Thunder, Marvel Studios has officially released all of the MCU’s Phase 4 that was revealed at SDCC back in 2019. All of the previously announced projects suffered production delays from the COVID pandemic, resulting in a drastic release date shift. Before SDCC 2019, Marvel Studios also decided to skip SDCC 2018 but gave attendees many surprises the year before at SDCC 2017.
Thor: Ragnarok was the primary focus of this panel, but the studio also showed off Ant-Man and the Wasp, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, and Avengers: Infinity War. At SDCC 2016, Marvel Studios gave fans a look at the Black Panther cast, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, and announced Captain Marvel with Brie Larson. Before skipping the 2015 convention, SDCC 2014 saw the announcement of Ant-Man and its cast, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and a look at Avengers: Age of Ultron.
SDCC 2013 featured the announcement of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Guardians of the Galaxy were all shown off also. Marvel Studios’ Hall H panels have become a staple piece of SDCC, and when the studio participates in the convention, they never disappoint. Since their 2019 SDCC panel, Marvel Studios has also announced, via D23, and released multiple Disney+ shows that continued Phase 4 of the MCU.
However, since they have reached an end to the previously announced lineup, it’s time for the studio to give fans a look at their upcoming theatrical schedule.
