The Marvel Cinematic Universe has its movies and plans scheduled out for the next few years, even if there are only a few release dates known.
The MCU has also expanded beyond just the movie theaters, as they have an entire slate of Disney+ shows coming, all starting in 2021 with the first of the lineup being WandaVision.
With so many Marvel movies and TV shows coming, here is a look at everything you have to look forward to.
This will include every movie and series in the MCU and any that other studios might release, including Sony, which holds the rights to the Spider-Man universe.
Finally, we will constantly update this list with all newly announced Marvel movies and TV shows, as well as updates to release dates, cast info, and more.
We made the last update on May 6, 2021, with brand-new release dates for the 2022 MCU releases.

What If…? (August 11, 2021)
In mid-2021, Marvel is releasing an animated series that will look back at every movie it has made so far, but with a twist.
It asks, “what if” something different had happened in each of the movies that changed everything.
There has already been a sneak peek at the animation and the ideas for Captain America: The First Avenger (Peggy Carter becomes Captain America), Guardians of the Galaxy (Yondu abducts T’Challa instead of Peter Quill), through the eyes of The Watcher.
The cast from all the Marvel movies returns for this series. Check out the sneak peek.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (September 3, 2021)
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will do two things for the MCU.
First, it will finally give fans the Mandarin they wanted to see in Iron Man 3. Second, it will do what Black Panther did, but for Asians, with the writer, director, and cast all of Asian heritage.
Shang-Chi is a master martial artist who uses the power of chi to increase his power and mental awareness for fighting.
Simu Liu stars as Shang-Chi, joined by Awkwafina as Katy, Tony Leung as Mandarin, Florian Munteanu as Laser Fist, and Michelle Yeoh as Jiang Nan.
Here is a look at the first trailer:
Venom: Let There Be Carnage (September 24, 2021)
The first Venom movie ended with Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock interviewing a prisoner named Cletus Kasady, a mass murderer.
In the comics, Kasady becomes the villain Carnage when he bonded with the offspring of the Venom symbiote. How this happens in the movie is still to be seen, but Venom vs. Carnage is happening this year.
Tom Hardy returns as Venom and Woody Harrelson will star as Carnage. Also returning is Michelle Williams as Anne Weying. A newcomer is Naomie Harris as Shriek, another symbiote-wearing villain.
Eternals (November 5, 2021)
Eternals is a hard sell by Marvel, but it should attract the same audiences that Guardians of the Galaxy did.
Both are Marvel cosmic stories, with Eternals about an ancient race created eons ago and left on Earth, where they did not know their identity or purpose until activated.
What will sell this movie is the cast.
Angelina Jolie is Thena, Richard Madden is Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani is Kingo, Lauren Ridloff is Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry is Phastos, Salama Hayek is Ajak, Lia McHugh is Sprite, Don Lee is Gilgamesh, and Kit Harrington is Dane Whitman, the Marvel hero knows as Black Knight.
Marvel showed a first look in the montage trailer for upcoming MCU releases from May 2021.
Ms. Marvel (Late-2021)
Not to be confused with Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel is a teenage Muslim superhero who can change her body into any size or shape. In the comics, she is an Inhuman, but there is a chance the MCU changes that.
Iman Vellani stars as Kamala Khan, Ms. Marvel, in the Disney+ series.
Hawkeye will bring back Clint Barton from the Avengers movies, but he will work with a new Hawkeye.
The new Hawkeye is Kate Bishop, a teenage girl who will take his mantle.
Jeremy Renner returns as Hawkeye while Hailee Steinfeld is Kate Bishop. Also appearing is Vera Farmiga as Eleanor Bishop, Kate’s mom. Alaqua Cox will also make her debut here as Echo.
Spider-Man: No Way Home (December 17, 2021)
The third Spider-Man movie in the Marvel trilogy will bring back actors from all the past iterations, including possibly both men who played Spider-Man before Tom Holland — Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
This movie also looks like it will tie into the multiverse storyline starting in WandaVision that will also continue through the next Doctor Strange movie.
On Feb. 24, Marvel revealed the official name as Spider-Man: No Way Home and confirmed the release date.
Morbius (January 21, 2022)
Morbius was supposed to come out in 2020 but was pushed back to 2021 thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. Sony has moved it again, this time to 2022.
This is a Spider-Man spinoff movie, the second new franchise following Venom, and stars Jared Leto as Michael Morbius, a man who uses a technique to cure his lifetime illness, but he ends up developing vampire-like powers and a thirst for blood.
Check out the trailer for Morbius.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (March 25, 2022)
The second Doctor Strange movie is hitting in March 2022.
Little is known about the movie outside the fact that it is about the multiverse and will also star Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff.

Thor: Love & Thunder (May 6, 2022)

The movie will also feature Jane Foster picking up Mjolnir and becoming the new Thor. Natalie Portman will be back as Jane. In a shocking interview, Russell Crowe also revealed he is playing Zeus in the movie.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (July 8, 2022)
Black Panther II is scheduled to hit in July 2022.
The movie will not recast T’Challa and there is no word on who will be the new Black Panther in the movie.

The Marvels (November 11, 2022)

Jessica Gao (she wrote Pickle Rick in Rick & Morty) will run the show.
At the annual Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, MCU chief Kevin Feige announced that She-Hulk is about to start production, putting it in line with the expected release date.
Moon Knight (2022)
Moon Knight is coming to Disney+ in 2022. Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) was cast as Moon Knight and Jeremy Slater (Umbrella Academy) was hired to be the lead writer.
Originally, Moon Knight was expected to arrive before She-Hulk, but Kevin Feige said at the annual Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour that it would start production shortly after She-Hulk, which means it should be a late 2022 release.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special (Late-2022)
James Gunn will direct The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special for Christmas 2022.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (February 17, 2023)

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (May 5, 2023)
In 2023, James Gunn will complete the Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy with all members of the team returning.

What we know about Deadpool 3 is that it will be the MCU’s first, and possibly only R-rated movie. Ryan Reynolds will also be back as Deadpool as Marvel takes over the franchise from Fox.
Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin and Wendy Molyneux from Bob’s Burgers will write the script.
Fantastic Four (TBD)
In 2019 at Comic-Con in San Diego, Marvel announced they were bringing the Fantastic Four into the MCU, and Jon Watts (Spider-Man: Homecoming) was hired to direct the film.

Secret Invasion (TBD)
The Marvel Comics’ Secret Invasion storyline is coming to Disney+. Marvel has said it will not be as big as the comic book version, and Samuel Jackson as Nick Fury will be back for the series.
Loki Season 2
When the Loki Season 1 finale ended, the end credits pronounced there would be a second season. With the first season ending with a cliffhanger and Kang in charge of the TVA, the series will surely tie into the MCU movies.
Captain America 4 (TBD)
The end of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier revealed that Sam Wilson would be back as the new Captain America. It is assumed this will be a fourth Captain America movie.
Ironheart is about teenager Riri Williams, a brilliant teenage girl who creates her own Iron Man armor.
