MCU Fans Point Out the Unlikely Recurring Theme of Phase Four So Far

Kevin Feige proclaimed that the Marvel Cinematic Universe‘s Phase Four would be about new beginnings, which is true to a great extent when several Infinity Saga stalwarts have been cycled out in favor of newer, fresher, hungrier, superheroes, before the Multiverse Saga was officially confirmed to be the driving force behind the next stage of shared storytelling.
Now that we know everything is building to 2025’s double-header of Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars, we can expect the limitless alternate realities and variants of well-known characters to play increasingly integral roles in the mythology. However, the multiverse hasn’t even come close to being established as Phase Four’s underlying arc as of yet.
Instead, Redditors pointed out (with the help of trusty visual aids) that based on what we’ve seen across the theatrical and Disney Plus slate so far, surrogate parental figures are clearly the biggest driving force.
