It’s Monday morning and time for another episode of Marvel News Desk, the official podcast of MCU Exchange.  There are some frequently asked questions that we get all the time.  For example, “When are we going to get a Phase Four announcement?”  This week we are pulling them out again for a more in-depth conversation on those things that MCU fans just keep asking about.  We also go through a bunch of news about Marvel films, Netflix shows, and box office returns.  We do go full spoilers for everything released thus far in the MCU, so you have been warned.  Feel free to use the timestamps below to jump to the conversations you are most interested in.  Thanks for listening!

Thor: Ragnarok opens everywhere November 3. You can buy your tickets on Fandango, now.
