The last one year has been an eventful one for comic book fans with Marvel coming up with Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Thor: Ragnarok and Spiderman: Homecoming. We can term them as appetizers as it was followed by gigantic releases like Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther and Antman and the Wasp. We aren’t quick to forget DC who came up with the blockbuster Wonder Woman and Justice League which were just some months from the release dates. Things are going to get bigger and meaner with both the studios have several movies lined up for the next one year too. Let’s take a look at the list of movies now.

Wonder Woman 1984

We cannot reiterate as to how the first instalment of the movie got fans excited and rooting for a woman superhero.  The sequel will finally release after it’s slated for a November 1, 2019 release. The Gal Gadot starrer will once again be seen as the Amazon Princess and will be seen fighting the famous villain: The Cheetah. Chris Pine will be seen joining the cast but, his role has not been defined or publicized yet. Some say that it can’t be called a sequel and a different chapter from Wonder Woman’s life.

Avengers 4

Avengers 4 will be the ultimate game definer for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and fans have been waiting with baited breath for a release date. The last was Avengers: Infinity War and the dark ending has left fans wondering what could be in store after Thanos’s snap move. His idea to massacre half of the universe’s population saw us losing some of our favourite Superheroes like Spiderman, Black Panther and more. The official title and the release date is yet to be announced. All we know for now is that it will hit the screens in May 2019.

Spiderman – Far From Home

Peter Parker is all set to return in the next instalment of Spiderman and frankly, fans have been speculating the possibilities in this sequel. The movie has been slated for a July 5, 2019 release and Tim Holland will be seen as Spidey once again. This movie will come right after Avengers 4 and the outcome of it is easily relatable to the Spiderman instalment as well.  The last we heard is that Mysterio could play the antagonist in the movie.
