Marvel has always been known for its groundbreaking movies and TV shows, but with their recently announced 2022 lineup, the game has been taken to a whole new level. From exciting new characters to exciting new storylines, Marvel is poised to keep fans on the edge of their seats in the months and years to come.
One of the biggest additions to the Marvel universe is the upcoming movie, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” Following the untimely death of Chadwick Boseman, fans were left wondering how the franchise would move forward. But with director Ryan Coogler at the helm, and the promise of exploring other characters within the Wakandan nation, the possibilities are endless.
Another highly anticipated movie is “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”. With the multiverse having been hinted at in previous Marvel movies, fans are eager to see how the Sorcerer Supreme, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, will navigate these alternate dimensions. The movie will also see the return of Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlett Witch, who is rumored to be a key player in the multiverse’s unfolding.
And for the more physically inclined fans, “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” promises to be a martial arts extravaganza. The movie will introduce Simu Liu as Shang-Chi, a skilled fighter, and Marvel’s first major Asian superhero. The Ten Rings organization was first introduced back in the first “Iron Man” movie, and this new movie promises to explain more about their enigmatic leader, The Mandarin.
But that’s not all. We will also see the Disney+ series “She-Hulk,” starring Tatiana Maslany as the titular green-skinned lawyer. The series will also see the return of Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, aka the Hulk. And “Ms. Marvel,” starring Iman Vellani as the Pakistani-American superhero, will also make her debut, showing how Marvel is diversifying its roster even further.
Finally, fans of the “Ant-Man” franchise will be pleased to know that a third movie is in the works, titled “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.” Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly are set to return as the titular heroes, along with Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, and Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne. The movie is sure to feature more alternate realities, dimensions, and time travel, which were introduced in the previous two movies.
Marvel is definitely changing the game with its impressive lineup for 2022, promising to keep fans entertained for years to come. They are also breaking barriers by including more diversity in their casting and storytelling, making it clear that there’s a place in the Marvel universe for everyone. Fans are sure to enjoy the ride as Marvel continues to push the boundaries of what’s possible in the superhero genre.
