With What If…? wrapping up last month, the release of Eternals this month (November 5) and Spider-Man: No Way Home coming out next month (December 17), we are getting fed with great Marvel content.
We also know that Marvel still has quite a bit coming too. It can get confusing remembering the who/what/where/when/why for all the new Marvel projects, so we wanted to give you a little refresher. Strap in as we explore the future of the MCU.
November 24, 2021
Jeremy Renner is back as Clint Barton in the new Disney+ series Hawkeye. It’s a Christmas-themed adventure series that sees Hawkeye pass the torch to Kate Bishop (played by Hailee Steinfeld). Surprisingly, Clint has had less than 2 hours of screen time across all his appearances in the MCU, so this show should be a nice dive into the history of the character for non-comic fans.
Late 2021 – Early 2022
We are so excited for the release of Ms. Marvel. The show will follow Kamala Khan (played by Iman Vellani), a Jersey City based 16-year-old who writes superhero fan fiction (particularly of Captain Marvel), and gains shape-shifting powers. This may be Khan’s on-screen debut, but she has already been confirmed to reprise her role in The Marvels, the sequel to Captain Marvel.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
While it’s been 6 years since the release of his solo movie, Doctor Strange has been very busy appearing in other MCU movies. This sequel will show Strange dealing with a friend-turned-enemy (*cough* Wanda *cough*). Speaking of Elizabeth Olsen, she’s described the movie as “bonkers” with a “horror show vibe”. Whatever that means, we’re super excited.

Thor: Love and Thunder
The fourth Thor film (and second from franchise-saver Taika Waititi) has already wrapped filming. From set photos and announcements, we know that Natalie Portman is back as Jane Foster (and will become the Mighty Thor), the Guardians of the Galaxy are back, and Christian Bale is playing Gorr the God Butcher. The title alone should tell you that this is going to be a can’t-miss movie.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
Plot details for the long-awaited Black Panther sequel are scarce. We know that the film started production in August 2021 and it has frequently been said the movie will honor the legacy of Chadwick Boseman. We’re also getting the introduction of Riri Williams (aka Ironheart) who creates a suit of armor that rivals that of Tony Stark’s Iron Man suits. This is going to be such a good movie.
November 11, 2022
A sequel to Captain Marvel was announced back in 2019. The Marvels will premiere in 2022 and feature Brie Larson back as Captain Marvel, Iman Vellani reprising her role as Ms. Marvel, and Teyonah Parris back as WandaVision’s Monica Rambeau (reminder: we did see Monica in the first movie, but as a child).
Which projects are you most excited for? TBH I would skip them all to get straight to Ant-Man 3…
