Marvel Studios has released a new commercial introducing the one and only Miss Minutes to recapture fans' anticipation for Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Phase 5 has officially begun, with Phase 4 coming to a close again in November with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
While the last phase of MCU storytelling may have been a bit bleak in some fans' eyes, Phase 5 will attempt to rekindle the franchise once more, introducing Jonathan Majors' Kang the Conqueror, the next Avengers-level threat.
The marketing tool for Phase 5 has begun in earnest, with Marvel Studios releasing a number of promotional materials to commemorate the occasion, the latest of which has a familiar voice for fans of Disney+'s Loki.
Phase 5 of Miss Minutes is being commemorated.
Tara Strong (alias Loki's Miss Minutes) is featured front and center in a brand new teaser promoting the MCU's Phase 5 launch.
The minor promotional video, which was published online by Marvel Studios India, is made up of clips from Phase 4 films and shows, and is accompanied by Miss Minutes' iconic voice that "[catching audiences] up] on the last couple of years of Marvel storytelling.
'PHASE 4 BROADCAST TERMINATED' is emblazoned across the screen, indicating the end of this recent MCU era.
"PHASE 5 TRANSMISSION INCOMING" is shown, before moving on to a collection of footage from future Marvel Studios projects including Secret Invasion, Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, Loki Season 2, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Welcome Party
Marvel Studios is really working to make this latest era of MCU storytelling feel like a major undertaking as Phase 5 kicks off with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. It appears to be working.
Phase 5 makes sense. Marvel Studios has never really promoted the beginning of a new phase directly, rather than the projects themselves.
Phase 4 gave us the foundations for what lies to come, but Phase 5 will see this new era of Multiversal storytelling grow into a seedling, before finally bearing fruit in the next phase 6.
The super-powered franchise is doing everything it can to either rekindle fans who have lost their confidence in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty or make those who have been bought throughout the entire time more excited.
