For about a decade, Marvel fans were in for a treat. We received several Marvel Cinematic Universe movies that hit theaters per year. But that hasn’t been the case lately. Spider-Man: Far From Home released in theaters on July 2, 2019. That was exactly two years ago and it was also the last time an MCU movie was released, marking by far the biggest gap between entries since the original. Iron Man was released in 2008. Fortunately, that is about to change very soon.
2019 has been a huge year for the MCU.Captain Marvel was released, bringing Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers into the fold. It became a huge hit, earning over $ 1 billion at the box office. Then Avengers: Endgame followed, picking up the day after Avengers: Infinity War. It was the conclusion of over a decade of storytelling, turning into a global pop culture event unlike any we’ve seen before. It did, at least for a brief moment, become the highest grossing film in history.Avatar would later claim the crown.
Then a few months later we have Spider-Man: Far From Home. He brought in fan-favorite villain Mysterio, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, and served as a sort of epilogue to the events of End of Game. It was also a huge success. Tom Holland’s second solo outing in the MCU became Sony’s biggest box office film, grossing $ 1.13 billion. The plan was to take a hiatus of about nine months and then kick off MCU Phase 4 with Black Widow. The world had other plans.
2020 brought with it the pandemic that has decimated the film industry on all fronts. The productions have been stopped. The cinemas have been closed for months. It was chaos with uncertainty looming around every corner. Almost every big movie from every studio has been delayed, Black Widow and the rest of the slate from Phase 4 included. Now, finally, after years of waiting, Scarlett Johansson’s long-awaited solo release as Natasha Romanoff is slated for release next week. More than a year after its originally planned release date. It will be released both in theaters and on Disney + via Premier Access, which shows how much everything has changed since. Far from home graced our screens in the summer of 2019.
Fans won’t have to wait that long for an MCU movie anymore. Or at least not for the foreseeable future. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Eternals and Spider-Man: No Path Home all arrive this year. 2022 will bring us Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and Wonders. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, the Blade restart and the new one The Fantastic Four the film is also on the way. Not to mention all the MCU shows on Disney + now. Needless to say, Disney and Marvel Studios intend to make up for lost time. Black Widow arrives July 9 from Marvel.
