Due to the worldwide Covid-19 outbreak, this year’s comic book movie release schedule has been delayed. Many comic book movies scheduled for theatrical release in 2020 have been pushed back to later in the year or to 2021. Because the coronavirus outbreak is a fluid situation, it’s difficult to know what will and will not change. Here’s what we know so far about superhero movies coming out in 2021:
One of the things I love about the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the interconnectedness of it all. While you can watch each movie on its own (except for probably Infinity War and Endgame), it’s so much richer as a story and experience if you follow them all.
I’ve been reading comics since the mid 1980’s, and watching the movies and tv shows as they come along. Let’s just say I’ve seen a lot of them, and enjoyed most of them. All that said, and admitting I had a few reservations going in, I’m going to say Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse might be the best Spider-Man movie I’ve seen,
It’s really hard to review Avengers: Infinity War while meeting two criteria: 1) No Spoilers and 2) Not just typing WOW over and over again.
I’m a huge hero fan, and have been reading comics for decades. Yes, decades. So I like to think I’m at least a decent judge of hero movies. I’ll sum this up quickly and then go in to detail later. Spider-Man: Homecoming is fantastic. It’s a great addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and I’d say the best Spider-Man movie I’ve ever seen. And I liked the Tobey Maguire ones. At least the first one.
The new Champions (absolutely no relation to the 1970’s team) is continuing to come together. They have their membership established, as far as we know, but they are still working things out like who’s in charge, which comes up over and over this issue. Personally, I’d probably vote for Ms. Marvel, but who knows what’ll happen.
The chaos of the Secret Wars event seems to be over in most of the Marvel Universe, and the new status quo is being established. I don’t get a lot of Marvel titles, so I don’t quite know what’s going on in all of this. It would appear that the “main” Marvel Earth and that of the Ultimates merged, kind of like after the Crisis on Infinite Earths over in DC back in the 80’s. I don’t know why Peter Parker is head of a big company now, but that seems to be the case.
