Marvel Phase 4 Movies: Every MCU Movie Coming By 2023
Release Date: November 5, 2021
next film on phase 4 slate, Eternal Promises to compete with any Avengers movie. That’s because of its award-winning director Chloe Zhao, an all-star cast And Apparently a runtime of two and a half hours (per Russian outlet Metro Cinema)
Eternal’s 10-strong superhero team includes Gemma Chan Cersei, Richard Madden Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani Kingo, Salma Hayek Ajak, Angelina Jolie Thena, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Brian Tyree Henry as Fastos, Lauren Ridloff as Foolish, Barry is involved. Keoghan as Druig and Don Lee as Gilgamesh.
Additionally, Kit Harrington will play Dan Whitman/Black Knight, while Dan Stevens has teased heavily that he will voice Deviant leader Crow. No news yet on who will voice Celestials Nazar the Calculator or Arisham the Judge.
Set in the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame, the Eternals will reunite the superhero group to protect humanity from gods and celestials during a so-called “accidental event”. Expect plenty of drama, action, and standard Marvel humor.
Spider-Man: No Way Home
Release Date: December 17, 2021
Is there a more awaited Marvel movie than this? Spider-Man: No Way Home? The release of the first trailer for the threequel nearly broke the internet in late August, and the hype between the previous Spider-Man actors and their villains’ potential returns hasn’t waned.
Shortly after the second MCU Spider-Man flick, No Way Home, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) enlists the help of Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to restore his secret identity. Mysterio then revealed who he was in the post-credits scene of Far From Home.
However, things don’t go according to plan, and both help bring about the arrival of the multiverse. Alfred Molina’s Doc-Ok, Jamie Foxx’s Electro and Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin, among other rumored villains, are expected (or likely) to reprise their roles in No Way Home. Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield are also believed to be returning as their Spider-Man iterations, while Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock — last seen in his Netflix Daredevil series — could have cameos. This is a lot unknown about the movie.
Suffice to say, we’ll strap ourselves to a mind-bending, action-packed, and potentially emotional ending to the MCU’s Spider-Man trilogy.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
Release Date: 25 March 2022
Speaking of the Magician Supreme, Doctor Strange 2 Comes in theaters three months after No Way Home. This is likely to give us a clearer look as well as a better understanding about the Marvel Cinematic Multiverse (MCM).
Cumberbatch is in line to reprise his role as Stephen Strange, and he will be joined by Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, Benedict Wong’s Wong, Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Baron Mordo and Rachel McAdams’ Christine Palmer from the first film. Newcomer Xochital Gomez will also portray newcomer America Chavez, a relative of Marvel’s comic line-up of superheroes.
Little is known about the plot of Doctor Strange 2, save for a brief synopsis (per) backstage.com), which suggests we are in for a mind-boggling, horror-style superhero flick that will reshape everything we thought about the mainline live-action universe. All signs, then, point to a setback in the way the MCU and its residents operate.
Thor: Love and Thunder
Release Date: 6 May 2022
The only Avenger to receive a fourth solo film (so far, anyway), Thor’s MCU arc will continue in May 2022.
Undoubted, Thor: Love and Thunder It will be a kind of mini Avengers movie. It also stars Guardians of the Galaxy, Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, and Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster as the alt-go Mighty Thor. But God of Thunder is still the only member of the MCU’s original Avengers lineup to get another live-action outing.
Unlike Doctor Strange 2, we don’t know much about its plot. According to director Taika Waititi, it will draw inspiration from Jason Aaron’s Mighty Thor comic series, in which Foster acquires the same superpowers as Thor while undergoing treatment for cancer. We also know that Christian Bale (The Dark Knight, Vice) will play the film’s antagonist Gore the God Butcher, while Waititi calls Thor 4 “the craziest movie ever.” [he’s] ever done”. Fingers crossed this is real and not an exaggeration.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
Release Date: 8 July 2022
Perhaps the most poignant Marvel movie is currently in production, and with good reason. Black Panther’s MCU journey will continue without the iconic Chadwick Boseman, who passed away in August 2020 after a four-year battle with cancer.
Marvel Studios opted not to recreate T’Challa in honor of Boseman’s portrayal, wakanda foreverSince then director Ryan Coogler and co-writer Joe Robert Cole have reshaped its plot five times. However, filming is underway on Black Panther 2, so it looks like the two have found a way to preserve Boseman’s legacy while taking the Black Panther story forward.
So what do we know about the film so far? Lupita Nyong’o’s Nakiya, Letitia Wright’s Shuri, Angela Bassett’s Ramonda and Danai Gurira’s Okoye are all reprising their roles from the first film. Martin Freeman and Winston Duke are also back as Everett Ross and M’Baku, respectively. I May Destroy You’s Michaela Coyle has also been cast in an undisclosed role.
Finally, Wakanda Forever will feature a live-action version of Ironheart, aka Riri Williams, a genius inventor and MIT student who creates his own Iron Man-style armor suit. Expect Tony Stark’s MCU successor to play a bigger role in the proceedings, as well as one of the established actors playing Black Panther at some point.
Release Date: 11 November 2022
While technically a Captain Marvel sequel, the Nia Dacosta-directed Phase 4 film marks the first time a trio of female superheroes will appear on the big screen.
Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers will be reunited with Monica Rambeau of Teyona Parris, daughter of Denver’s best friend Maria (Lashana Lynch) from the first film. The last time we saw Rambeau, he acquired his superpowers in WandaVision, so expect a strange family-style reunion between the pair.
Elsewhere, Iman Vellani’s Ms. Marvel will also make her live-action film debut. Vellaani’s Kamala Khan will first star in her own Disney Plus show, which is apparently expected to release in early 2022. So we will be introduced to him before his appearance in The Marvels.
Zave Ashton (Velvet Buzzsaw) has been cast as the villain of the film, which is currently being filmed in the UK after working in Los Angeles and New Jersey.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantummania
Release Date: February 17, 2023
Another production that’s shooting in the UK right now, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantomania could rightly introduce us to the MCU’s next big Bad Infinity Saga, right after Thanos.
Again, little is known about the plot of this film, but we do know that its antagonist will be none other than Kang the Conqueror. The time traveling genius will be played by Jonathan Majors, who portrayed one of Kang’s time variants – He Who Remains – in Loki Season 1. And his official arrival could have huge ramifications for the MCU going forward.
Majors Kong aside, Ant-Man 3 will see the return of Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer and Katherine Newton alongside Scott Lang/Ant-Man, Hope Van Dyne/Wasp, Hank Pym, Janet Van Dyne and Cassie Lang. Peyton Reed, who previously directed the two Ant-Man flicks, also returns to the hot seat and has hinted that the Quantum Realm will play a bigger role in the proceedings. Look at this place.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
Release Date: May 5, 2023
Guardian 3, one of two upcoming films in 2023, will wrap up the trilogy that James…
