The Marvel Cinematic Universe has grown to become the most successful superhero film franchise in history, dominating the international box office with each new release, yet the MCU does not cover all of the Marvel films scheduled for release between 2021 and 2023. Some Marvel properties are still owned by 20th Century Fox Entertainment and Sony Pictures Entertainment, and while there have been numerous hints that some of Sony’s films may be included in the MCU, this has yet to be confirmed. Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, Marvel and the MCU had to postpone numerous films in 2020, but they are back in full force in 2021.
Despite Marvel’s announcement in October 2021 that five of their planned films will be delayed, there are still a lot of films to look forward to from late 2021 through 2023, with 2022 already looking to be a particularly busy year for Marvel releases. Aside from the scheduled films, there are plans for further spinoffs, reboots, and sequels in the not-too-distant future.
For years, critics have expressed concerns that the MCU’s popularity, as well as the steady supply of Marvel and DC superhero films, could be a transitory fad. Marvel’s releases, on the other hand, show no signs of slowing down, and DC is pushing up its productions with new angles highlighted in the 2021 DC FanDome for the DCEU and beyond, demonstrating that they know how to play to their strengths. Although it has been years since the release of Avengers: Endgame on the big screen, producers, executives, and investors are unlikely to forget the actual power of superhero films after the film’s record-breaking $1.2 billion opening weekend.
Disney can be trusted to continue the heightened development of their Marvel IPs in the post-pandemic future, alongside the other studios that have managed to retain the rights to some Marvel franchises and appear to be working closely with Marvel in the future.
Spider-Man: No Way Home – December 17, 2021
Spider-Man: No Way Home, the sequel to Spider-Man: No Way Home, will be released in December 2021. On the creative side, Tom Holland reprises his title role with director Jon Watts and writer pair Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers.
To deal with the fallout from Spider-Man: Far From Home’s post-credit scene, in which J. Jonah Jameson (J.K. Simmons) reveals Spider-secret Man’s identity, Peter Parker enlists the help of Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to help him forget who he is.
The King’s Man – December 22, 2021
The Kingsman franchise is another Marvel Comics product that many casual viewers may not be aware of. It was published as part of the Icon Comics banner and was created by Mark Millar. The King’s Man is a period prequel directed by Matthew Vaughn and set in the same universe.
The Duke of Oxford is played by Ralph Fiennes, and Conrad is played by Harris Dickinson. Their early version of The Secret Service must prevent Rasputin and his evil alliance from starting a global war that will kill millions of people. The King’s Man was supposed to be released in 2019, but it was pushed back to February 2020, then September 2020, before finally being released in December 2021.
Morbius – January 28, 2022
Jared Leto is returning to the realm of comic books in a role that should give him a bit more screen time after repeating his role as The Joker in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. After multiple delays, Sony’s Morbius feature has wrapped and will be released at the start of the new year. Leto plays Michael Morbius, a doctor who seeks to cure himself of a rare blood ailment but develops vampire-like characteristics, including a need for human blood, in the process.
Morbius is directed by Daniel Espinosa and will star Matt Smith, who has appeared in Doctor Who, as the malevolent Loxias Crown. Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Tyrese Gibson, and Michael Keaton round out the rest of the cast, who appear to be reuniting.
