Phase 4 of the MCU is coming to an end with the upcoming release of both She-Hulk: Attorney at Law on Disney+, and Black Panther releasing in theatres and as such, it seems like a good time to have a look at the current loose ends in Phase 4 we need to resolve.
Where is the White Vision from WandaVision?
Those of us who watched the WandaVision show all the way back in January of 2021 will be asking the same question; where’s Vision now? After a philosophical showdown between the two Visions, the White Vision flew off, maybe to find himself, maybe to find answers for himself.
Monica Rambeau’s Secret Space Meeting & Ms. Marvel’s Disappearance
Again at the end of Wandavision, Monica is approached by a Skrull. She’s told a certain someone wants a meeting with her and indicates it’s not going to be on Earth. With news she’s going to be in The Marvels along with the newly revealed mutant Ms. Marvel it’s fair to say we’ll get a quick answer to this.
Sharon Carter’s Powerbroker
Definitely not one of the more popular characters turns in MCU history, the end of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier revealed Sharon Carter hadn’t in fact given up her criminal wrongdoings as The Powerbroker, and in fact is now a double (or triple?) agent back within the US Government.
US Agent, Yelena, & Valentina
Valentina has been the subject of several scenes in the MCU, with her recruiting/manipulating Yelena to go after Hawkeye, as seen in the Disney+ series, as well as US Agent. With the announcement of Thunderbolts it’s fair to assume we’ll find out more about her motives, but until then, we’ll have to wait.
Loki, the TVA, & Kang
The ending of Loki did a lot to redirect the MCU into the multiverse-hopping extravaganza it is right now, including introducing Jonathan Majors Kang, or at least a variant of him anyway. It also left us with many questions after the timeline had shifted, everyone having forgotten Loki. Talking of forgetting…
This will obviously be addressed in the coming years in the next Spider-Man film, but as of right now, we’re still left to wonder what’s happening with him since we last saw him in his new suit and apartment, and this is arguably one of the biggest loose ends in phase 4 to date.
The Venom Symbiote
Another post-credit scene, another of the biggest loose ends in Phase 4.At the end of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Eddie Brock gets taken back to his own universe, but not before leaving behind a tiny droplet of Venom, no doubt setting up the introduction of the MCU’s own version.
Three of the Eternals Being Kidnapped
At the end of Eternals, we see three of the remaining Eternals being kidnapped by a Celestial. Where did they go? With the poor reception of the film, will we find out?
The Beacon in Shang-Chi
In the post-credits scene, we see a now-human Bruce Banner, as well as Captain Marvel, discussing the ten rings and their origins. Apparently, the rings are sending some sort of beacon out, but to who or what, and to where?
Doctor Strange & Clea’s Dimensional Tear
At the end of Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness we were introduced to Charlize Theron’s Clea meeting Strange and immediately requesting his help in an adventure. With the earlier mention of incursions, and Clea telling Strange about a problem that she needs help with, it’s probable we’ll find out more in either Doctor Strange 3, or perhaps in The Kang Dynasty/Secret Wars.
So there we have it! There are a lot more cliffhangers and loose ends in Phase 4 than those mentioned here, but these are arguably the most pressing. Sound off in the comments about any I’ve missed you think to have bigger questions and repercussions for the MCU!
