'Black Widow', 'Eternals': Updated list of upcoming MCU shows, movies
Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) had a massively successful conclusion to Phase-3 with Spider-Man: Far From Home. But things came to a standstill because of the pandemic and the much-awaited Black Widow movie got delayed repeatedly. Marvel got back on its feet in 2021, releasing highly acclaimed Disney+ miniseries WandaVision (January), The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (March), and Loki (ongoing). Here's a refreshed list.
The plan of watching a story specially devoted to Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow is finally materializing on July 9. Early reviews have heaved praises, calling it "thrilling, propulsive & capably constructed." Following this exciting film, Marvel's first Asian superhero, Shang-Chi, will greet us on September 3. Makers had released a new trailer for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings recently.
According to the roster released by Marvel in May, Eternals will be coming out next, currently booked for November 5, 2021. Anticipate Harish Patel aka Ibu Hatela's role! Tom Holland's web crawler is also getting its third movie this year, which might be one of Spidey's last appearances in the MCU (remember the Sony Pictures fiasco?) Spider-Man: No Way Home comes on December 17.
"What if Peggy Carter took the super-soldier serum instead of Steve Rogers?" Such questions will be dealt with in Marvel's upcoming animated series What If...? We don't have a date yet but it's coming in 2021. The next year will begin with a hint of magic, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (March 25, 2022). This will be followed by other sequels.
The confirmed dates suggest Thor: Love and Thunder will be launched on May 6, ushering in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever on July 8, and The Marvels on November 11, 2022. However, two other series might see release in 2021. These are Hawkeye and Ms. Marvel. Jeremy Renner had announced they're finished with shooting Hawkeye in April. Also, is Fawad Khan part of Ms. Marvel?
