Just this year, we got to see the release of Black Widow and Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. While this year has appeared to be stacked already, we know that 2021 has two more Marvel films in store. Yet, it doesn’t stop there. Marvel has officially added four more movies to their upcoming list over the span of the next two and a half years. To clear things up a little, we decided to collate all the upcoming Marvel movies scheduled to release between 2021 and 2023… that we know so far.
Check out our complete guides to some Marvel properties:
Upcoming Marvel Movies: 2021
Marvel’s upcoming The Eternals centers around a race of immortal beings who possess superhuman abilities. For thousands of years, these immortals have secretly inhabited the Earth. Although, the time has come where they must join forces in order to battle one of their biggest enemies: The Deviants. An interesting concept this film tackles is the question: Why didn’t The Eternals help defeat Thanos?
Spider-Man: No Way Home (December)
The trailer of Spider-Man: No Way Home presents the main conflict of the film, which is the problems that arise after Peter Parker pays Doctor Strange a visit. In hopes to wipe out the entire world’s recollection of Peter Parker’s true identity, Doctor Strange agrees to help Peter and opens up the complexities of the multiverse. However, the duo appears to have bitten off more than they can chew.
Upcoming Marvel Movies: 2022
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (March)
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is a sequel set to take place after the events of Doctor Strange (2016). When an important friend becomes Strange’s enemy, an unspeakable evil is faced and it’s up to the rest to solve it. There have been speculations as to who this mysterious friend is which includes the Scarlett Witch Theory but one thing is certain which is the return of characters such as Spiderman, Scarlett Witch and Loki will make this a film of epic proportions.
Thor: Love and Thunder (May)
The upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder film is intended to be a direct sequel to 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok. The film’s director, Taika Waititi said the upcoming film plans to adapt elements from Jason Aaron’s iteration of the Mighty Thor comic book. In Aaron’s work, Jane Foster, who is played by Natalie Portman in the movies takes on the mantle and powers of Thor whilst suffering from cancer.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (July)
Serving as the sequel to Black Panther (2018), Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s 30th film. Just like the first film, this upcoming movie will be directed by Ryan Coogler. However, things are different this time around as the irreplaceable Chadwick Boseman has passed away. After Marvel has decided not to recast his role as T’Challa, we have to wait and see how things will pan out.
The Marvels (November)
The Marvels will be starring Brie Larson as Carol Danvers a.k.a. Captain Marvel, Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan a.k.a. Ms. Marvel, and Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau. It is intended to be the sequel to Captain Marvel and a continuation of the Disney+ series Ms. Marvel, and WandaVision. This film will also be the 31st film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Upcoming Marvel Movies: 2023
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (February)
As the name suggests, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will star Ant-Man played by Paul Rudd, and Hope van Dyn played by Evangeline Lilly. The film will be directed by Peyton Reed, following the screenplay done by Jeff Loveness. The film will also feature Jonathan Majors who will return to play Kang the Conqueror, who we first saw from Disney+’s Loki. The return of this character will surely shake things up for the film and for the eventual future of the MCU.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (May)
The two-year wait for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is quite understandable due to the drama that took place involving the firing and re-hiring of James Gunn as the film’s writer/director. According to Gunn, the film will be “huge” as it will showcase several worlds. From the sounds of it, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set to deliver a great conclusion to the trilogy.
Despite that long list of upcoming Marvel movies, there’s still more that we don’t know about. Marvel has announced that aside from the films mention above, three more unannounced films are set to release in 2023, while 4 more are set to release in 2024. Fans have been active in creating their own theories as to what these films will be and the characters and new worlds that we would eventually discover together with Marvel Studios.
