Black Widow

Among all the Marvel movies 2021 and 2022, Black Widow, the signature movie of Scarlett Johansson is probably the most awaited. Initially scheduled on May, 2020, the superhero film has delayed 3 times before finalizing its premiere on July 9, 2021.

Considering the situation of Covid-19 pandemic in USA and some other markets, the release of Black Widow in July this year is highly likely. However, as for the Indian audience, we may have to wait a longer time to watch this hit in theatre given the increasing number of confirmed cases at the moment.

Black Widow was developed back in 2004 by Lionsgate and David Hayter. It was not until 2010 that Scarlett Johansson officially cast for the lead role, together with other roles of the same character Natasha Romanoff in the MCU series.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

This is the very first film of Marvel with an Asian lead, Simu Liu in the role of Shang-Chi. Though the project on Shang-Chi had begun since 2001, the filming just started in February 2020 and then postponed due to the pandemic.

If everything goes right as planned, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will have its premiere in the USA on 3 September 2021, two months after Black Widow.

For your information, Simu Liu, who takes the lead role as Shang-Chi, was actually trained on martial arts and gymnastics at a a very young age. He practiced Taekwondo and Wing Chun, and also worked as a stuntman before casting in this project.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage

In fact, Venom: Let There Be Carnage is not a movie in Phase Four of Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, we can't leave it out of Marvel movies 2021 and 2022 as it focuses on the Marvel Comics character Venom.

Moreover, its producer, Columbia Pictures, collaborated with Marvel to get the most authentic product related to the character after the success of Venom in 2018.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage stars Tom Hardy in the lead role as an investigation journalist, Eddie Brock. Eddie hosts an alien symbiote that possesses super-human abilities and a violent ego. This other side of Eddie is Venom.

This movie has finished its filming and is first scheduled in October 2020. However, as other Marvel movies, the date was then delayed to 2021 on 24 September.


The 26th film of MCU promises to become an instant hit once released on 5 Nov, 2021. The film features a number of superstars across global film industries namely Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Lauren Ridloff, Kumail Nanjiani, Don Lee, Kit Harrington, or Salma Hayek.

According to the original version of Morbius in Marvel Comics, this man suffers from a rare blood disease that threatens his life. In a desparate attempt to cure himself, Morbius experiments a dangerous treatment that turns him into a form of vampire. In the Marvel world, Morbius is the antihero against Spider-Man.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Continuing the success of Doctor Strange movie in 2016, Marvel immediately had plans for a sequel after the first movie was released.

The filming just started in November last year and ended last month.

Thor: Love and Thunder

While fans of Thor are excited at the return of their God, many can’t hide their disappointment when Loki (Tom Hiddleston) isn’t seen in the star cast.

Thor Love And Thunder 2022
Sadly Loki is no longer present in this Thor sequel.

Thor: Love and Thunder, the sequel to Thor: Ragnarok, stars a number of famous actors including Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale or Chris Pratt. However, the absence of Tom Hiddleston partly reduces the heat of the blockbuster.

This Marvel movie in Phase Four will come to US theatres on 6 May, 2022. There isn’t any announcement for other markets yet.

Black Panther Wakanda Forever

Till now, there is little information about the sequel of Black Panther. Though the film is in development, not many details about the storyline are revealed. The only thing we are sure is about the star cast. After the sudden death of Chadwick Boseman, the lead actor in the first Black Panther movie, fans are spreading different speculations about who would replace him in the second installment.

Black Panther Wakanda Forever 2022
To pay tribute to Boseman, the director didn't recast the role for T'Chala.

The director of the film, Ryan Coogler, confirmed that the role of T’Challa would not be recast, evoking rumours that Shuri (Letitia Wright), sister of T’Challa, would continue his mission as Black Panther. However, many doubt that Shuri taking on the lead role would cause an abrupt transition of power in the movie. These fans hope the director will resurrect Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) for the role of Black Panther. This idea is, however, of little possibility given the cameo role of Michael B. Jordan.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is scheduled on July 8, 2022 in the US.

The Marvels

Wrapping up the list of Marvel movies 2021 and 2022 today is The Marvels which is to release on November 11 next year.

The Marvels is the sequel to Captain Marvel in 2019, featuring Brie Larson, Teyonah Parris and Iman Vellani in the roles of Captain Marvel, Monica Rambeau and Kamala Khan respectively.

Above are upcoming Marvel movies 2021 and 2022 which will be released in cinema in the US as scheduled above. To other markets, the release dates might vary due to the Covid-19 pandemic in each country. As for India, we are afraid that we may have to wait a much longer time to see these hits given the situation in the nation now.
