Marvel movies once again grab the attention of movie premieres. A few days ago, the study revealed a future calendar that included dates between 2023 and 2024. What’s new? That he did not reveal the name of the productions that will premiere on those dates. For more inri , the list includes an obvious relationship with each other with releases separated by months apart . Are these some of the great returning characters? New stories to tell?
For now, what we have clear is that the plans Marvel have become more ambitious than ever. With the premiere of five series in 2021, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is more than a franchise . It is an elaborate set of ideas that are related to each other as something larger that grows without stopping. From animation, development of secondary characters and stories new to the cinema, Marvel’s future plans are of considerable scope.
The Phase increased the studio’s production and made it clear that the Marvel Cinematic Universe (now multiversal) will knock on some new doors. For 2021 the series still remains to be released Hawkeye , The Eternals and Spider-Man: No Way Home . But it will be 2022 that will show the definitive proposal of the house of ideas. Next year will begin with the long-awaited Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in March; Thor: Love and Thunder in May; Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in July and The Marvels in November.
But for 2023 there are only two confirmed titles . Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will arrive in February and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in May. Two mysterious films should be added to this calendar, which would make 2023 the first year with five Marvel films. And that’s without taking into account that there will be four films by 2024.
With this group of unnamed films, there is nothing left but to speculate what could be wait for the Marvel calendar in the future. What could be the characters or stories that will arrive? Here are some options:
July 2023: the Marvel movies bring the vampires with Blade
The first big Mysterious date could have a protagonist eagerly awaited by the public. Mahershala Ali’s Blade could be Marvel’s first mystery premiere in 2023. Of all the announced, suggested, or rumored projects, it’s the one that seems to have the most early release elements. The film’s production has accelerated in recent months . A few weeks ago it was announced that writer Stacy Osei-Kuffour and Mogul Mowgli’s director Bassam Tariq would be part of the behind-the-scenes team.
The first news about the production arrived almost by surprise in 2019. Since then, and due to the pandemic crisis, there has been little news. But now, with a director and screenwriter, it is the only film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe announced in the future with firm steps in its development. There are rumors that production will begin in July 2022 , which could confirm that its launch could take a prominent place in the following year.
October 2023, the largemouth avenger could make his Marvel debut with ‘Deadpool 3 ‘
A few weeks ago, Kevin Feige confirmed that already a third film of the largemouth avenger played by Ryan Reynolds is being worked on. It would be the official arrival of the character to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and also perhaps the first R classification of Disney.
For now, the writers Bob’s Burgers, Lizzy and Wendy Molyneux are confirmed as screenwriters. The information coincides with some comments from Reynolds himself, who made it clear that “70% of production” could be ready by 2022.
November 2023, the Marvel movies that bring the Fantastic Four
For now it is only clear that Jon Watts, the director of the Marvel trilogy of Spider-Man, will be the director of the future film. That is good news that ensures, at least, thematic unity with the rest of the franchise. After the multiple mishaps of the characters in the cinema, Marvel could be taking the film very seriously. Not only in the way how to link it to the rest of the films, but with a story that could be successful for the fantastic family.
Still without actors for the main characters it is unlikely that production will begin before the middle of 2022. But what is certain is that a movie of such a scale, would arrive just before Thanksgiving . The familiar theme, in addition to the fact that it is a premiere long awaited by fans, could be the strong point in the decision.
February 2024, Falcon wears the shield again in ‘Captain America 4’
The success of the series Falcon and the Winter Soldier ensured that Sam Wilson could wear the shield on the cinematic world. Weeks ago it was confirmed that Anthony Mackie would officially return to play Captain America. But despite the announcement that screenwriters Malcolm Spellman and Dalan Musson will be on the film’s team, little is known about the production. Still without a director and without any other details on its development, it is unlikely that it will begin production in 2022.
But it is evident that with the social comment added to the series, the film will be released in February 2024 during Black History Month . Something that has already been successfully tested with Black Panther and that undoubtedly demonstrated to Marvel the power of the symbolic.
May 2024, one of Marvel’s most powerful teams hits the screen with A-Force
In addition to The Avengers , Marvel might be planning to bring other great superhero teams to the movies. There are already rumors of maybe series that will show Dark Avengers , Thunderbolts or Young Avengers . However, the most insistent comment is that 2024 could be the year of the Marvel female cast.
If it happened, it would be the best moment in the entire history of the franchise. We could see Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) after her second movie. To the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) after the events of the Doctor Strange sequel. To the version of Thor played by Natalie Portman and undoubtedly accompanied by Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson). On the other hand, The Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) would have already had a third foray into the cinema. Also Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) would have made her great film debut. And if that wasn’t enough, She-Hulk (Tatiana Maslany) and Ms. Marvel (Iman Vellani) would have already had their first adventure in their respective series.
On the other hand, the heroines of Wakanda Shuri (Letitia Wright) and Ironheart (Dominique Thorne) could also be included in the team . For now, the project lacks any production details, but it is a strong contender for the future.
July 2024, the latest Marvel movie hero returns with Shang-Chi 2
After the considerable success of Shang-Chi and the legend of the Ten Rings its sequel is more than likely. Now, will not be soon. The character will have to be fully integrated into the Marvel superhero team. And besides, it is most likely that Marvel could take two years to plan an event of considerable interest.
November 2024, a visitor from the multiverse comes to the big screen with Captain Carter
Captain Carter is one of the superheroes of What if…? who seems to have a future in live action . In addition to the rumors of his possible appearance in the Doctor Strange sequel, there were some comments about the possibility of a solo movie.
But the great British heroine will not be alone . For the past few months, there were rumors that Henry Cavill was reuniting with Marvel for the role of Brian Braddock. But there was no confirmation about it. What is certain for now is that the British character (any of them) has a future in the Marvel franchise.
