Marvel’s movie plans for the next few years have been laid out – and there’s a lot to look forward to.
At the Disney investor conference overnight, Marvel Studios unveiled several of the upcoming cinematic instalments for its ongoing Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Up until this point, many of these films had been dated but not yet titled. The announcement reveals a mixture of returning and new franchises, as the studio continues to bring in properties that it has reacquired from elsewhere. Chief among them? Fantastic Four, which will make its MCU debut following Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox.
The announced titles are as follows:
Spider-Man: Homecoming director John Watts will helm the Fantastic Four movie, no names or date attached yet.
Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania (it took me three attempts to spell that so good luck marketing that one, Disney) will be directed by the returning Peyton Reed and star Lovecraft Country’s Jonathan Majors as major Marvel villain, Kang the Conqueror.
The Doctor Strange sequel, The Multiverse Of Madness is now slated for March 2022.
Nia DaCosta, who has directed the upcoming Candyman reimagining, will direct Captain Marvel 2. That film will also see the Disney+ Ms Marvel character, played by Iman Vellani, join Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel, for the big screen adventure. That one is due November 2022.
Christmas 2022 will see a James Gunn-directed Guardians Of The Galaxy Holiday Special, ahead of the third film in the trilogy some time in 2023.
Ryan Coogler will return to direct Black Panther 2 which we already know will not feature a digital incarnation of the greatly-missed Chadwick Boseman. Instead the film will explore other characters and the land of Wakanda. That film is set for July 2022.
Marvel Studios also announced or re-introduced some key MCU Disney+ shows such as She Hulk, Ironheart, Moon Knight, Armor Wars starring Don Cheadle as James Rhodes and Secret Invasion starring Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.
So there you have it. The MCU is set to run for some time yet. But you knew that already, right? More news on these projects as we get it.
