Marvel studios are one of the most popular moviemaking studios. Marvel started in 1939 printing illustrated comic books created by Stan Lee. Their first ever movie, Blade, released in August 1998, made approximately 70 million dollars. Marvel movies now tend to make from 370 million dollars to over 1.5 billion dollars. Sadly, Stan Lee died last month at the age of 95, but Marvel is still coming out with great movies. Here is a list of Marvel’s upcoming movies, in no particular order.
Expected release date; March 8, 2019.
This movie will have Brie Larson starring as Captain Marvel, its first trailer was released in October. Captain Marvel is a superhero that Stan Lee and Gene Colan created in 1967 when Stan and Gene introduced an alien called Marvell in their comics. She was their first female superhero. Her powers consist of flight, superhuman strength, energy manipulation and she can absorb energy.
This movie was “leaked” in Avengers: Infinity War. In the after credits scene in Avengers: Infinity War, Nick Fury and Maria Hill are driving in an SUV and talking about the battle at Wakanda. All of a sudden, a car spins out in front of them. They check the car and notice there is no one in it. Then, out of nowhere, a helicopter crashes into a building. As people are freaking out and running around, Hill starts to disintegrate. The way he disintegrated was like how many other characters did before in the movie when Thanos snapped his fingers to wipe out almost all life in the universe. While Hill is disintegrating, Fury runs back into the car and grabs a pager from the back seat. He starts pressing a button on the pager, but then he also starts to disintegrate. After the pager drops on the floor, the camera zooms in on its screen, and a gold star pops up. Then blue and red colors, and the camera cuts to black. What does that mean though? One view of this is that it may mean that Fury was trying to send a message to Captain Marvel, which follows up to fans predicting Captain Marvel appearing in a movie soon. And they were right because, in March, We’re gonna see, maybe one of the most action-packed Marvel Movies ever!
Expected release date; May 3, 2019.
This movie is going to be a Marvel movie that doesn't really focus on one main character, it is going to have almost all the Marvel characters in it. Kind of like Infinity War. This movie’s name is actually not official yet, but everyone is calling it Avengers 4, as it is most likely to Marvel will be titling it that. There is not a lot that we know of this movie, but many people are believing that a lot of MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) characters stories will come to an end, because in Avengers: Infinity War many characters disintegrated. Those characters include Black Panther, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Winter Soldier, Scarlet Witch, all the Guardians Of The Galaxy members except Rocket, and also Nick Fury. But nothing is proved, so maybe in Avengers 4, Marvel will bring back some of those beloved characters.
Avengers 4 started filming the same time as Infinity War; August 2018. Infinity War was released on April 2018, so it took them about 8 months to film Infinity War. But Avengers 4 is still being filmed, It’s has been being filmed for about a year and a half! So anyone can guess that this movie is going to be a hit, with all this editing and filming Marvel Studios is doing. what's great is that this movie is releasing only 2 months after Captain Marvel, so Marvel fans can get 2 of the most hyped movies releasing right around the same time.
Spider-Man: Far From Home
Expected release date; July 5, 2019.
What will this Spider-man: Homecoming sequel have for us? It will have action, comedy and an awesome villain, just like all other Spider-Man movies. But let’s dive deeper into the details, and look at what’s really going to happen in this movie.
First off, let’s look at his suit for this movie: Some leaked photos (to the right) from Instagram shows Peter’s new costume in this upcoming film. In the last Marvel movie based on just Spider-Man, his suit had a built-in robot that had many features and different modes. So, that means that we can only go up! This new black and white suit he is going to get will probably have some hard armor for that villain to have to break through. Speaking of villains, let’s look at the villain for this movie.
The villain in Spider-Man: Far From Home will be Mysterio, played by Jake Gyllenhaal. According to The Hollywood Reporter; Gyllenhaal was disappointed and surprised when he heard he would be playing this supervillain, as he thought he would be playing the role of Spider-Man.
Overall, all the great actors and funny characters will lead up to an amazing movie! So this Summer, our favorite spider’s returning!
Unknown release date.
No one really knows when this movie is going to be released or who the villain will be because only about a week ago people knew this movie was going to come out. No one is certain what year it will get released in, but odds are; we’ll be watching this movie in late 2019. Shang-Chi is an Asian superhero that does not have a signature weapon (Not totally true, he does occasionally throw shurikens). Instead, he is trained in martial arts and has very strong fighting skills. Shang-Chi was created by Steve Englehart and Jim Starlin back in 1973. A couple of years after that, he joins the Avengers and gets the power to multiply himself. He appeared in a couple movies but was not really noticed a lot after that. However, Marvel decided to have a movie that supports Asian culture, so they brought back the perfect hero for this movie. Even though Shang-Chi is Asian, Marvel will make this movie as non-racist as possible. According to Deadline.com, “The script will modernize the hero to avoid stereotypes that many comic characters of that era were saddled with.” This movie probably hasn't even started getting recorded yet, considering how little we know about this movie. But what we do know is that this movie will be awesome!
The New Mutants
Expected release date; August 2, 2019.
The New Mutants will be a movie about 5 young mutants held captive by a villain. That’s really all we know of the story. But here are some further details: The mutants names are Wolfsbane, Magik, Mirage, Sunspot, and Cannonball. They must learn about whoever is holding them hostage, and they also must learn about their powers/abilities. The thing that will make this movie really unique is its theme. It will be more “horror” than “action”. A couple factors to this theme include the setting (It was filmed in Medfield State Hospital) and the characters. Apparently, in the “hospital”, there are these weird faces that go through the walls ( Kind of like in Stranger Things). They are after the young mutants. What are they though? No one knows. Maybe it could be a villain. But for now, we’ll just have to wait for more teasers to come out! And if you like horror movies and superheroes, this movie is gonna be for you!
Overall, 2019 is going to be a pretty solid year for Marvel Studios. And this isn't even all the movies to watch. These are just 5 really good ones! If you want to look at more great movies to watch later, click right here. I personally can't wait for these amazing movies to come out, and I will really enjoy them!
