We’re currently in the middle of a Marvel Studios drought during the 10-month gap between Spider-Man: Far From Home’s July, 2019, release date and when Black Widow hits cinemas in May, 2020, but there are obviously still huge plans for the Marvel Cinematic Universe over the next few years.

Those plans have just got even bigger, too, as The Hollywood Reporter says Disney has now set new dates for five untitled Marvel movies, which will hit cinemas on 7 October, 2022, 17 February, 2023, 5 May, 2023, 28 July, 2023, and 3 November, 2023.

That means that we’ll have two new Marvel movies in 2020, four in 2021, four in 2022, which will include Black Panther 2, and then four in 2023, too.

The launch of Disney+ means that there are even more Marvel adventures coming in this period, too, as The Falcon And The Winter Soldier will arrive in 2020, WandaVision, Loki, What If …?, and Hawkeye will be released in 2021, and then Ms Marvel, Moon Knight and She-Hulk should hit at some point in 2022.

For the time being, though, all that Marvel fans can do is speculate over what movies and characters will fill the newly announced slots from Disney.

The safe bets are Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3, Ant-Man 3, and Mahershala Ali’s debut as Blade, which was announced by Kevin Feige earlier this summer.

Of course, Marvel fans will also be hoping that either a Fantastic Four or X-Men movie will at least take up one of the release dates, too, as Disney’s recent purchase of 20th Century Fox means that they’re poised to be incorporated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the very near future.
