Ever since Disney+ made its debut in early 2020, there has been a flurry of activity in the Marvel cinematic universe. We’ve already seen the first-ever Marvel TV show for Disney+, WandaVision, garner much praise, and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is streaming now as well. However, Disney’s plans for Marvel content on Disney+ are not even partly done yet. The company has plans to release many movies and TV shows on its streaming service. So here are all the Marvel movies and shows coming to Disney+ in 2021, along with their release dates.
Marvel Shows and Movies Coming in 2021
If WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier are not enough for you (they are not enough for me, either), there’s nothing to worry. A lot of Marvel content is coming your way soon. So here’s every Marvel movie and TV show coming to Disney Plus in 2021.
Note: This detailed upcoming Disney+ Marvel movie and show guide has a ton of Avengers Endgame spoilers sprinkled all over. So, if you’re someone who, somehow, still hasn’t watched this epic conclusion to the Avengers saga, I suggest you retreat right now. Come back and read this article once you’ve seen Avengers Endgame.
Although Thanos killed Loki in Avengers Endgame, there’s a lot of mischief still left in him. We already saw Loki use the Tesseract to escape capture back in the new 2012 timeline. It happened when The Avengers used time travel to gather all the Infinity Stones and bring all those who vanished back into existence. According to Kevin Feige, this Marvel series will answer the question, “where did Loki go?” and I’m looking forward to this Disney+ show more than anything. Plus, who doesn’t want to see more of Tom Hiddleston on screen?
Loki Release Date: June 11, 2021
Another character that died in Endgame, Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, has her own movie on the cards. The Black Widow movie will be set immediately after the events of Captain America: Civil War. It is said to feature The Taskmaster as the main villain and will arrive on Disney+ in July.
Black Widow Release Date: July 9, 2021
The animated series ‘What If…?’ will portray Marvel’s imagination of how things would be if major events in the MCU turned out differently. Expect to see prominent characters like Thanos, Howard Stark, Thor, Nick Fury, Killmonger, and others in this animated show.
What If Release Date: Summer 2021
If you’re a fan of Jeremy Renner from Marvel’s Avengers movies, you are in for a ride. This Disney+ TV series will follow Renner’s Clint Barton as he trains Kate Bishop (played by Hailee Steinfeld) to take over the mantle of Hawkeye.
Hawkeye Release Date: Late 2021
Ms. Marvel will bring to the screen Marvel’s first Muslim female superhero in Kamala Khan (played by Iman Vellani) when she discovers her powers. It is likely going to be a must-watch for Disney+ subscribers who are looking forward to Captain Marvel 2 since Vellani will be part of the next Captain Marvel movie as well.
Ms. Marvel Release Date: Late 2021
Marvel Movies and TV Shows Coming in 2022
There are a bunch of Marvel movies slated for release next year as well. There’s no concrete information about their arrival on Disney+ in 2022 but judging by Black Widow’s availability on the streaming service, these movies could come to Disney+ as part of the Premier Access program. So we’re listing them here as well.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
Originally scheduled to release this year itself, the next Doctor Strange movie has been rescheduled (twice), all the way to 2022 now. This Marvel movie will follow the events of the Disney+ series WandaVision and will star Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange and Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff (or the Scarlett Witch).
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Release Date: March 25, 2022
Thor: Love and Thunder
Yet another Marvel movie that was originally scheduled for 2021, the next entry into the Thor franchise, Thor: Love and Thunder, is now set to release in May 2022 and could find its way to Disney+ as well. This movie will star Chris Hemsworth as Thor, and Natalie Portman (finally back in the Thor movies) will play female Thor. The star-studded cast of Thor: Love and Thunder will also feature Christian Bale as the main supervillain, Gorr the God Butcher.
Thor: Love and Thunder Release Date: May 2022
Black Panther II
Even though Chadwick Boseman sadly passed away last year, Black Panther 2 is still very much on the cards. However, the role of Black Panther will not be recast. The movie is currently being rewritten and is expected to release in July 2022.
Black Panther 2 Release Date: July 8, 2022
Captain Marvel 2
The ending of WandaVision gave us quite a lot to look forward to in future Marvel movies. Captain Marvel 2 will bring the now grown-up Monica Rambeau (played by Teyonah Parris) and Brie Larson as Captain Marvel herself. This movie will also feature Iman Vellani as Ms. Marvel, whose first look we will get on Disney+ soon.
Captain Marvel 2 Release Date: November 11, 2022
