It looks as if the world may be finally going back to normal. Or at least that’s what the folks over at Marvel believe. Yesterday, the studio released a special trailer celebrating Marvel Cinematic Universe. But the trailer also reveals release dates for a whole bunch of upcoming movies. And while some of them are old news, others are new. So, here they are, ordered by date!
Black Widow – a movie that should have launched Marvel’s Phase 4 before the pandemic – is coming out on July 9, 2021. It will be released both in cinemas and on Disney Plus – a move that was unthinkable just a year ago. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is scheduled for September 23, 2021. Long-awaited Eternals by Chloe Zhao (who just won an Academy Award for Nomadland) will premiere on November 5, 2021. Finally, Spider-Man: No Way Home is coming out on December 17, 2021. That’s four Marvel movies coming out over six months. Studio folks are either convinced movie theaters will reopen real (which is still debatable) or that their fans are itching hard for a new Marvel blockbuster (which is certain).
But we’re not done yet! As the trailer reveals, Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness will premiere on March 25, 2022. Just two months later – May 6, 2022 – comes Thor: Love and Thunder. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is still scheduled for a release on July 8, 2022. By now, we’ve reached 2023, and there are still two titles coming out: Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (February 17, 2023) and Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 3 (May 5, 2023).
That’s quite a lineup Marvel has got there. Let’s just hope the studio gets to follow it.
