In addition to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, several other films in the MCU franchise are confirmed in theaters.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is one of the major events in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the conclusion of the Infinity Saga in Infinity War (2018) and Endgame (2019) because of the exploration of the multiverse. But the franchise’s planning doesn’t stop there, as several MCU movies are slated for a theatrical release after the Doctor Strange sequel. Write it down on the agenda!
Thor: Love and Thunder (July 7, 2022)
Thor: Love and Thunder is the fourth solo adventure for Thor (Chris Hemsworth) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and will feature the return of Taika Waititi to direct after Thor: Ragnarok. In the story, Thor must face one of his greatest threats: Gorr, the Butcher of God, played by Christian Bale. We will have the return of Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), now wielding the repaired Mjölnir and receiving the powers of Thor after the protagonist becomes unworthy, in addition to the presence of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (November 10, 2022)
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is the long-awaited sequel to Black Panther, directed by Ryan Coogler. The film will expand Wakandan society with the return of Shuri (Letitia Wright), Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o), Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and M’Baku (Winston Duke). After the death of actor Chadwick Boseman, who played the protagonist King T’Challa, it was confirmed that they will not recast the character in the sequel and he will not even appear in CGI, as has been speculated.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (February 16, 2023)
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania continues to follow Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) after Ant-Man, Ant-Man and the Wasp and, of course, Avengers: Endgame. The film will have as main antagonist the villain Kang the Conqueror, played by Jonathan Majors – and a variant of him, called “The One Who Remains” and also played by Majors, was introduced in the Loki series. Kang will likely be the next big MCU villain after Thanos, so the third Ant-Man movie should be pretty important to the multiverse plot.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (May 4, 2023)
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set to be the final adventure for the team as we know it from the first two films directed by James Gunn and consisting of the characters Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Drax (Dave Bautista), Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Groot (Vin Diesel). No further story details were released, but the film is expected to take place after the events of Thor: Love and Thunder and will feature the mighty Adam Warlock, played by Will Pulter, as its main antagonist – a character who was teased in one of the aftermath scenes. -credits of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. two.
The Marvels (July 27, 2023)
The Marvels is the second solo adventure by Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), aka Captain Marvel, in the MCU. In the plot, she will be joined by Monica Rambeau, played by Teyonah Parris, who was first introduced in the series WandaVision; in addition to counting on the presence of Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel, played by Iman Vellani, who will be featured in her own series on Disney+.
