After the abysmal year that was 2020 for everyone, Marvel decided to load up 2021 with new Marvel Cinematic Universe shows and movies nearly every single week of the year so that fans would have something to enjoy all year round. Now, as we enter 2022, Marvel is not taking their foot off the gas. This year will be loaded as well, but it looks like two MCU projects are moving away from 2022 to a later date.
As the original lineup was first reported by Cosmic Circus, the MCU 2022 slate looks to have been altered. Two series, Secret Invasion and What If…? Season 2 have seemingly have been pulled from this year’s slate.
Here is the updated slate:
- Moon Knight (March 30, 2022)
- Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness (May 6, 2022)
- Thor: Love and Thunder (July 8, 2022)
- Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (November 11, 2022)
- She-Hulk (TBD)
- Ms. Marvel (TBD)
- I Am Groot (TBD)
Now, this hasn’t been officially confirmed by Marvel, nor was the original list. Both lists seemingly came from a Japanese branch of Marvel, which feels official, but we also know that releases happen differently outside of the U.S., so we can’t be 100% sure on this at the moment. Hopefully Marvel will release something official from their main website that will give us a clear picture of what to expect.
If this is proven to be official, fans shouldn’t fret. The year is still jam-packed with Marvel content, and moving these shows back can only be a good thing for the quality of the shows and will keep all of us from possible ‘superhero fatigue’. Regardless, we will get them at some point and we’re certain it will all be worth the wait for the fans.
