The MCU is taking fans for an exciting ride.

Phase 4 of the cinematic franchise started off with a bang with the mind-bending series WandaVision.

But things quickly sped up when the trippy show Loki debuted – perfectly setting the tone for where the MCU is headed.

Just to quickly recap: In the season finale Loki's variant, Sylvie, mercilessly kills the TVA's creator, "He Who Remains," after he explained that he was in the one keeping the multiverse intact.

This led to a catastrophic event in which alternate timelines were created.

Welcome to the multiverse!

Now, the MCU has spun its web and dangled a new storyline to tease audiences.

While several key movies will toy with this new plot more intensively, a few new TV series will also be vital to the universe's next stage.

With its newest series What If..? at the helm, here are more series that are a must-watch for fans to travel into the madness of the multiverse!

Hawkeye

Jeremey Renner will return as the skilled archer Clint Barton/Hawkeye in the upcoming titular series.

The story picks up after the film Black Widow, where Clint will face-off against Yelena Belova, portrayed by Florence Pugh, the sister-figure of the late Natasha Romanoff.

While Yelena plots her vengeance against Clint, who she believes is responsible for Natasha's death, the former S.H.I.E.L.D agent will be training his new protégé Kate Bishop, played Hailee Steinfield.

Vera Ferminga, The Conjuring alum, will also be joining the cast as Eleanor Bishop, Kate's mother. Newcomer Alaqua Cox will play Maya Lopez/Echo.

This will be Jeremy's first standalone project in the MCU, and if the success of Black Widow taught fans anything, it's to never underestimate the underdog!

Hawkeye will premiere on November 24 only on Disney +.

Ms. Marvel

The 2022 film, The Marvels, will bring together a trio of "marvelous" women, including Captain Marvel and Monica Rambeau.

However, one person who will also be an integral part of the team is Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel.

The comic book character will also get her own series, aptly titled after her, which is set to premiere later this year.

Iman Vellani will star as the fictional character who is a shapeshifter and huge fan of Captain Marvel.

More details about the show have yet to be released, but the series is clearly important to watch, as it will set up the premise for the movie.

Plus, it will be intriguing to see if the series will follow the comic's storyline as far as showing how Ms. Marvel got her powers.

Ms. Marvel will dazzle later this year.

Wakanda Series

The Black Panther sequel is slowly coming together, but a spin-off series is also in the works!

The series Wakanda doesn't have a set premiere date yet, but it will more than likely come out after the sequel.

Therefore, there is a plethora of possible storylines, making the wait more exciting!

However, it will be difficult to watch the series, given the untimely passing of Chadwick Boseman, who portrayed the superhero.

Since Marvel has chosen not to recast the Black Panther, it does give the series a chance to explore other intriguing characters, or even how the hidden capital came to be.

Wakanda forever!

Secret Invasion

For those who thought they saw the last of Nick Fury, think again!

Samuel L. Jackson will return as the slick former spy in Secret Invasion.

The series will be solely based on the comic book story arc, in which the Skrulls invade Earth and live in disguise.

The storyline has been alluded to in other films, and even in WandaVision.

In addition, Nick Talos, played by Ben Mendelsohn, will also be returning – meaning that any other Marvel character, dead or alive, could also make an appearance.

Secret Invasion doesn't have a release date, but that shouldn't be a secret for long.

Let the Marvel madness commence!
