Marvel have announced all of the films they’re releasing in the next two years

You are probably aware of Marvel and their noted cinematic universe. Well, the good news for superhero fans is that the comic book behemoths have just announced all the films they’ll be releasing in the next two years.

The announcements were made by Marvel Studios on Saturday night at San Diego Comic-Con, much to the delight of fans. The latest additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be spread across six films over the next two years and include a reboot of Blade and an A-lister-packed The Eternals, which was heavily hinted at during the post-credit scenes at the end of Avengers: Endgame.

Here's what to expect along with the the current release schedule.

Black Widow (May 1, 2020)

Cate Shortland will direct Scarlett Johansson in a film that may or may not involving mourning or spiders but will almost certainly involve superheroes and high-octane highjinks.

The Eternals (November 6, 2020)

Not the Louise Redknapp biopic many had hoped for, this one will star Angelina Jolie and is based around the group of immortal beings created by cosmic Gods.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (February 12, 2021)

Destin Daniel Cretton is directing this effort, about the Master of Kung Fu. Simu Liu will star and, somewhat surprisingly, not Scarlet Johansson.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (May 7, 2021)

Scott Derrickson, who directed the first Doctor Strange and is making his glorious return, has claimed this will be the “first scary MCU film”. Benedict Cumberbatch returns as the title character.

Thor: Love and Thunder (November 5, 2021)

Another outing for Chris Hemsworth as Thor directed by the great Taika Waititi. Natalie Portman will play a female version of Thor and Tessa Thompson returns as Valkyrie.

Blade (tbc)

No release date or title for this one but Blade will return with Mahershala Ali in the role immortalised by Wesley Snipes on the big screen.

So there we are, that's the next two years sorted, presumably with lots more to come until we're watching Marvel films forever. With an occasional break for Star Wars. Until the end of eternity.
