Thanks to the recent San Diego Comic-Con, we now know a lot more about the Marvel titles that are due for release over the next few years. If you’re a fan of the MCU and comic books in general, you will no doubt be excited about the movies and TV shows that are heading our way.
Below is a list of the Marvel projects that have recently been confirmed. Which ones are you most excited about? Leave us a reply in the comments section if you would like to share your thoughts.
After checking our Marvel preview, head over to our DC preview for more information on upcoming releases.
I Am Groot (Disney+ TV Show) – August 10th 2022
If you ever wanted to know more about Groot and what life was like for him growing up (who hasn’t), you should check out the five original shorts featuring the talking tree in this spin-off series.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law (Disney+ TV Show) – August 17th 2022
Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany will star as Jennifer Walters, aka the She-Hulk, in this 9-episode series. She won’t be the only one turning green as Mark Ruffalo will also be making an appearance as the Hulk. You can also expect to see Charlie Cox’s Daredevil and Tim Roth’s Abomination in this latest Marvel series to hit Disney+.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (Movie) – November 11th 2022
Sadly, Chadwick Boseman is no longer with us and his absence is clearly felt in the trailer for this upcoming movie. We don’t know many plot details at this stage or who the new Black Panther will be but we do know that Namor the Sub-Mariner (Tenoch Huerta) will be making an appearance in this sequel.
Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special (Disney+ TV Special) – 2022
James Gunn is at the helm of this special that is set between the events of Thor: Love and Thunder and the upcoming Guardians movie. Little is known about the special at this point and there isn’t a release date but we would be very surprised if this didn’t feature at least one character wearing a Christmas jumper!
What If… ? Season 2 (Disney+ TV Show) – 2023
The first season of What If was pretty good so if you enjoyed that and want to see more multiversal stories featuring alternate versions of our favourite superhero characters, you will be pleased to know a second series is on the way.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (Movie) – February 17th 2023
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania kicks off Phase 5 of the MCU with Paul Rudd returning to take on the mantle of the diminutive (and sometimes oversized) superhero. Evangeline Lily will be back as the Wasp but the real sting in the tale will likely come from the movie’s big bad, Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors) who will be making major waves in the Marvel universe over the next couple of years.
There is no trailer for this one yet but in footage screened at the San Diego Comic-Con, a highlight included this exchange between Ant-Man and Kang.
Ant-Man: I don’t know who you are, but you’ve made a big mistake. I’m an Avenger.
Kang: You’re an Avenger? Have I killed you before?
Secret Invasion (Disney+ TV Show) – Spring 2023
Samuel L. Jackson returns as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn is back as Talos in this limited series that takes a closer look at the shape-shifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (Movie) – May 5th 2023
There is no trailer for the next Guardians movie yet but those in attendance at the San Diego Comic-Con did get a sneak preview. This included footage of new character Cosmo the Spacedog (Maria Bakalova), a different version of Gamora who tells Quill that the Gamora he knew is now dead, and a baby Rocket Raccoon. Little more is known at this stage but we don’t have too long to wait before the movie is released.
Echo (Disney+ TV Show) – Summer 2023
This Hawkeye-spinoff series will continue the story of Echo (real name Maria Lopez), the adoptive daughter of the villainous Kingpin who can replicate the fighting style of her opponents. Alaqua Cox will star as the Native American comic book character and rumours going around suggest Charlie Cox will be reprising his Daredevil role in the series.
Loki: Season 2 (Disney+ TV Show) – Summer 2023
We know the second season of Loki is on the way but in terms of plot details, we currently have nothing to go on. But in terms of casting, we do know that Tom Hiddleston will return as the titular antihero, Owen Wilson will be back as Mobius, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw will reprise her role of Ravonna Renslayer.
The Marvels (Movie) – July 28th 2023
Candyman director Nia DaCosta will be helming this upcoming movie that was originally known as Captain Marvel 2. There will be more than one ‘Marvel’ taking on the bad guys as Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel will be joined by Ms. Marvel (Iman Vellani), who was recently introduced in the Ms. Marvel Disney+ series, and Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris). The movie’s villain will be played by Zawe Ashton but the identity of her character has not yet been revealed.
Blade (Movie) – November 3rd 2023
Don’t expect to see Wesley Snipes don the black suit and fangs as the rebooted movie will star Mahershala Ali as the vampire hero. Nothing has been revealed about the movie but if you want a reminder of the character, you might want to re-watch the first two Blade movies (ignore the terrible third movie) that were released over two decades ago.
Ironheart (Disney+ TV Show) – Fall 2023
Dominique Thorne will star as Riri Williams/Ironheart, the genius inventor who, in the comic books, created an advanced suit of armour that used Tony Stark’s digitized consciousness to teach her how to be the best Ironheart possible.
We don’t know if the show will follow the comic books or whether Robert Downey Jr will lend his voice to the suit. But we do know that the character will make her debut in the upcoming Black Panther movie so we should learn more about her then.
X-Men ’97 (Disney+ TV Show) – Fall 2023
This revival of the original X-Men: The Animated Series from the 1990s will feature the voice work of the actors who portrayed the heroic mutants in the earlier show. Rogue, Beast, Jean Grey, Gambit, Wolverine, Jubilee, Storm, and Cyclops are just a few of the heroes that will be in the series, and on the villain front, you can expect to see Magneto, Mr. Sinister, Sebastian Shaw, and the White Queen.
Agatha: Coven of Chaos (Disney+ TV Show) – Winter 2023/2024
We knew a villainous character was waiting in the wings to surprise us with her own Marvel TV show. And guess what? It was Agatha all along! That cheeky witch! The wonderful Katherine Hahn will return for this solo project.
Daredevil: Born Again (TV Show) – Spring 2024
We are assuming the title doesn’t refer to Daredevil’s spiritual awakening so don’t expect to see scenes of the blind lawyer turned superhero worshipping the Almighty at his local church! But if the series is anything like the comic book that featured the ‘Born Again’ arc, you can expect to see the Kingpin systematically take apart our hero’s life, leaving him homeless, broke, and desperately in need of help.
Sounds grim, we know, but with a title like that, you can expect Daredevil to bounce back at some point during the show if it does follow the source material.
Captain America: New World Order (Movie) – May 23rd 2024
Anthony Mackie is the new Captain America in this movie directed by Julius Onah (Luce, The Cloverfield Paradox). As the movie is a long way from release there are no plot details yet but we expect Sam Wilson will be more comfortable holding the shield than he was in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
Thunderbolts (Movie) – July 26th 2024
The press release for Thunderbolts referred to the title characters as “an exciting new group of heroes” but if you know anything about the comic books, ‘antiheroes’ would be a better description as, in the source material, the Thunderbolts were a team of villains who became a reluctant force for good when the Avengers and Fantastic Four vanished.
Little is known about the movie at this point so we don’t know who will be in the team-up but their chief recruiter is likely to be Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), who previously made appearances in Black Widow and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Thunderbolts is the closing chapter of Phase 5 of the MCU.
Fantastic Four (Movie) – November 8th 2024
Marvel’s iconic family don’t have a good track record on the big screen. Tim Story’s Fantastic Four movies and Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four mishandled the characters and didn’t do much to capitalize on their superpowers. This new movie, which kicks off Phase 6 of the MCU, is guaranteed to be a lot better but we don’t know who the director will be (original choice Jon Watts departed the project) at this stage.
Mr. Fantastic was recently featured in the Doctor Strange sequel but was quickly killed off. That was in the Multiverse, of course, so we expect to see the character again in the new movie but we don’t know if John Krasinski will reprise his stretchy role.
Spider-Man Freshman Year (Disney+ TV Show) – 2024
If you were hoping for a new Tom Holland Spider-Man movie, you’re out of luck, as there has been no announcement on another live-action movie featuring the web-slinger. Still, at least we have this to look forward to, an animated series that acts as an origin story for the character.
We don’t know if Holland will be voicing Peter Parker/Spider-Man but Charlie Cox will be voicing Daredevil, who makes an appearance during the series. In terms of villains, it has been confirmed that Dr. Octavius, Scorpion, Chameleon, Amadeus Cho, Speed Demon, Butane the Pyromaniac, and Harry Osborn will be in the show.
A second season – Spider-Man: Sophomore Year – has also been announced.
Avengers: The Kang Dynasty (Movie) – May 2nd 2025
Another epic Avengers story that brings an end to the Multiverse Saga and Phase 6 of the MCU. Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror will obviously be the main villain of the piece and we expect the movie to follow the Kang Dynasty comic book storyline wherein Kang conquers the Earth with the aid of his son, Marcus.
Avengers: Secret Wars (Movie) – November 7, 2025
Arriving only six months after Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, this is expected to follow the Secret Wars comic run that saw the Fantastic Four, Avengers, and the X-Men team up to take down a cosmic entity called the Beyonder. We don’t know if the X-Men will be in the movie but it would certainly be a good entry point for the mutant heroes into the MCU.
And that’s it for now! As you can see, there is a lot to look forward to in the months and years to come so let us know which titles you’re most excited about by leaving us a comment below.
