Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is now well underway and we've got a sizzle reel of every single release date for the movies that will arrive in the next few years. Buckle up, buttercup, and be sure to pencil these into your diaries, because there are a lot.
Though the pandemic threw a wrench into the entertainment industry, things are beginning to pick up again now that the vaccines are becoming available across the world. One such movie that was adversely affected by delays is Black Widow that was originally intended to release twelve months ago. Also in Phase Four, we've got Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which will feature the first Asian-American hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it was a huge get for actor Simu Liu who bagged the role through Twitter. Yeah. Boasting a star-studded cast with Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, and Gemma Chan, Eternals follows a race of immortal aliens who will defend their home from their evil counterparts, the Deviants. And, it would be remiss not to mention Spider-Man: No Way Home here, with the rumours that ex-Spideys Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will be appearing in the movie, along with an iconic baddie from the original Sony trilogy.

So, let's get going. First and foremost, Black Widow is at long last releasing on July 9th. We were aware of this one, but for fans of the super spy, I'm sure seeing those words once again writ large will be a weight off of their shoulders. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings hits the silver screen on September 3rd, and another big blockbuster actually postponed its release date to avoid clashing with this movie. Afterwards, Eternals arrives on November 5th, and Marvel was even kind enough to grace us with a few snippets of the movie, with Angelina Jolie wielding some sort of glowing blade.
Spider-Man: No Way Home touches down on December 17th, very ready to scoop up that holiday cheer, and it's only fitting that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is next because the former ties into the latter. This movie will arrive on March 25th, 2022, and Thor: Love and Thunder comes along a few months after that on May 6th, 2022. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the sequel to the 2018 movie, releases on July 8th, 2022, and this will be an especially emotional continuation of the character's story owing to the loss of Chadwick Boseman last year.
The Marvels, featuring a very familiar "S" shape in its title, comes to theatres on November 11th, 2022. Marvel Comics boffins will recognise that this is the symbol on Ms. Marvel's outfit, so I'm sure that the sequel will have some surprises in store. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania releases on February 17th, 2023, which conveniently sorts my Valentine's Day plans out two years ahead of time.
Last but by no means least, we have Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on May 5th, 2023. Got all of that? Of course, Phase Four also includes TV shows like WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, as well as Loki, What If..., Ms Marvel, Hawkeye, and more. Once we've got the low down on these projects and how they're progressing, you'll be the first to know.
