With phase five of the Marvel Cinematic Universe right around the corner as well Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (2023), MCU fans are more excited than ever to move away from Phase 4. Despite having some of the best content in the MCU, there were many projects that failed to land for fans. After dealing with inconsistent CGI and bad comedy, Marvel is reportedly taking the time to make sure Phase Five doesn’t make the same mistakes.
While this is a good step forward, Marvel is still trying to make the most of the situation and create a marketing campaign for all of their movies to have a shot at some Oscars. The fans were not happy to see Thor: Love and Thunder (2022) is trying to run for an Oscar after having some questionable story moments and infamous CGI – looking at you, Axl!

All of these episodes are of course from phase four, but it doesn’t make sense for Disney+ to get rid of them. Currently, all of these projects were released in 2021, which could mean that Disney may have decided that they don’t want content approaching two years old to remain on the streaming platform. These episodes usually explore the process of how the project was created, and now some fans will not get to watch these episodes to understand more about the show or movie.
Some fans might be fine with this because they never bothered to watch any episode because it’s the explanation of how the movie was made, not the movie itself that was removed, but it seems that Marvel should have consolidated the episodes into one category on Marvel. They could have listed all the episodes as part of “Season 1” too Mounted series, but it seems it’s too late to offer Marvel suggestions, as the episodes are now gone.

With Phase Five content released in February, it seems that Marvel may do the same for all 2022 content in late 2023 to prepare for next year’s content, as the streaming service may have to limit the amount of MCU for some reason information content they produce. Since these episodes only debuted on Disney+, once they’ve been removed, there’s no way to watch any of these episodes, which is a disappointing and worrying thought for future MCU content made for the platform.
