There’s no question that Marvel Studios has delivered a lot of popular movies in recent years. Yes, Avengers: Endgame just became the biggest movie of all time, but Captain Marvel and Spider-Man: Far From Home also found spots in the top five grossers of 2019.
Although we’ve now reached a 23-film culmination for the MCU, don’t expect the studio to slow down anytime soon! Disney will still be pumping out a hefty amount of Marvel projects each year. Just take a look at what Alan Horn, the Chief Creative Officer and Co-Chairman of Walt Disney Studios, recently said:
Wow! Get ready to anticipate a lot more from your favorite Marvel superheroes. Disney started regularly releasing two movies a year following the success of The Avengers in 2012, and moved up the production to consistently deliver three a year starting in 2017. Per Alan Horn’s words to THR, Disney is sticking at this volume and perhaps even more!
We are already aware of Marvel’s Phase Four plans in 2020 and 2021. Next year will supposedly have a slower year, with Black Widow and The Eternals before the studio goes into high gear in 2021 with the outlined release of Shang-Chi, Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, Spider-Man 3 and Thor: Love and Thunder. Yep, that’s four a year! Past that, we know three dates for 2022 with Black Panther 2 taking up the May spot and untitled Marvel movies coming in February and July.
There are a ton of announced projects happening over at Marvel that have yet to get release dates too! Examples include Blade with Mahershala Ali, James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, a sequel for Captain Marvel and Ant-Man 3. And what about the teased films coming out of Disney’s recent Fox acquisition, such as Fantastic Four, X-Men and Deadpool.
And let’s not forget what’s in store for Marvel with the new Disney+ platform! Over the next few years, the studio will roll out the television shows Falcon & Winter Soldier, Loki, Hawkeye, Wandavision, Moon Knight, She-Hulk and Ms. Marvel, all of which will connect with the established universe. It’s an overwhelming amount of content! Could Marvel fatigue hit? Here’s what Alan Horn thinks:
