The Eternals

Upcoming Marvel Movies

Release Date: February 12, 2021
Status: In post-production
Director: Chloe Zhao
Cast: Gemma Chan as Sersi, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, and Kit Harington as Dane Whitman (aka Black Knight), with Angelina Jolie as Thena and Barry Keoghan.

What We Know So Far: The Eternals takes us on a journey based on a comics series curated entirely by Jack Kirby and revolves around a group of supernatural and nearly immortal beings. Marvel enlisted acclaimed The Rider director Chloe Zhao to take the direction. The film was slated for release in November 2020 but was delayed due to coronavirus concerns.

Shang-Chi and the legend of ten rings

Upcoming Marvel Movies

Release Date: May 7, 2021
Status: Filming (on hiatus)
Director: Destin Daniel Cretton
Writer: Dave Callaham
Cast: Simu Liu, Awkwafina, and Tony Leung

What We Know So Far: With Shang-Chi, Marvel is all geared up to produce its first superhero movie with an Asian lead. The film is based on a comics character created in the early 1970s by writer Steve Englehart and artist Jim Starlin and was born out of Marvel Comics’ desire to acquire the rights to the TV series Kung Fu, which went unheard. In the comic, it is seen, Shang-Chi was raised and trained by his father in martial arts, but when he found out his father’s evil plot, he turned against him. Marvel intends to fill out the ensemble with a mostly Asian cast, looking towards Black Panther as a template for how this kind of movie should be put together. Short Term 12 director Destin Daniel Cretton won the directing gig over other candidates that included Alan Yang (Master of None) and Deborah Chow (The Mandarin).
Filming was taking place in Australia but was shut down over coronavirus concerns.

Untitled Spider Man: Far From Home Sequel

Upcoming Marvel Movies

Release Date: November 5, 2021
Status: In development
Director: Jon Watts
Cast: Tom Holland, Zendaya, and Jacob Batalon

What We Know So Far: Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures were locked in continuous talks regarding the expansion of their partnership on future Spider-Man films. In summer 2019 conversation between both sides began over how to proceed further, but in September the two sides came to an agreement on at least one more Spider-Man movie starring Holland (who will also appear in one more unnamed MCU film). Far from Home writers Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers are reportedly returning to pen the screenplay, with Jon Watts back in the director’s chair.

Filming on this sequel is yet to commence in Summer 2020, and the effectiveness with which Sony is going forward compelled for a delay on another Holland project, Uncharted, which subsequently forced that film’s director Travis Knight to depart. In April 2020, we learned the third Spider-Man movie was given with a new release date in November 2021.

Thor: Love and Thunder

Upcoming Marvel Movies

Release Date: February 11, 2022
Status: In development
Director: Taika Waititi
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson, and Christian Bale

What We Know So Far: Marvel signed Thor: Thor will depict the return of Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, who becomes the MCU’s first female Thor! She’ll co-star opposite Chris Hemsworth as, well, Lebowski Thor I guess and Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, who was deemed King of Asgard at the end of Avengers: Endgame. Filming is due to begin in August 2020 in Australia.
We exclusively reported that Christian Bale is now in conversation to essay a negative role.
Filming was due to begin in late 2020 for a November 2021 release, but the spread of coronavirus caused Marvel to shuffle its release date calendar and push this one to 2022.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Upcoming Marvel Movies

Release Date: March 25, 2022
Status: In pre-production
Director: Sam Raimi
Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen

What We Know So Far:  In December 2018, it was disclosed that Derrickson had sealed a deal to return and direct the Doctor Strange sequel, and at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 Marvel confirmed that Derrickson and Cumberbatch would be returning for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Derrickson described the sequel as the first “scary” MCU film, and it will co-star Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, with events that tie directly into the Disney+ series WandaVision releasing months before Doctor Strange 2. Jade Hailey Bartlett is onboard to write the screenplay.

However, It was reported that filming is still on track to begin in May 2019, with Spider-Man and Evil Dead filmmaker Sam Raimi entering negotiations to take the direction.

The movie was first pushed back from its original release date of May 2021 to November 2021 due to coronavirus concerns. In April 2020, it was announced Doctor Strange 2‘s release date had once again been pushed back to March 2022.

Black Panther 2

Upcoming Marvel Movies

Release Date: May 6, 2022
Status: In development
Director/Writer: Ryan Coogler
Cast: Chadwick Boseman

What We Know So Far: There was no way Marvel was going to not make a sequel to the movie that outgrossed Infinity War domestically, and they took their time to ensure that Ryan Coogler would be the one steering Black Panther 2. Few details are known right now, but as of August 2019 Coogler has turned in his treatment and we can reasonably expect this to be a major film in the post-Endgame plans.

Captain Marvel 2

Upcoming Marvel Movies

Release Date: July 8, 2022
Status: In development
Director: TBD
Cast: Brie Larson

What We Know So Far: The Captain Marvel sequel will be set in present day, but directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are not returning behind the camera. Marvel is on the lookout for a new director to take the helm of this particular franchise.

What We Know So Far: The third instalment of Guardians of the Galaxy movie was originally supposed to start production in early 2019, but writer/director James Gunn was removed from the film last fall following the usage of some bad jokes he made on Twitter years ago.
