People thought it to be a passing fad, however, the superhero genre continues to thrive with largely positive critical reception, huge box office returns and ever-growing fan base; and Marvel is a major contributor to the genre. After the end of the magnificent Infinity Saga, Marvel is ready to expand its cinematic universe.
The studio has recently updated its release schedule by adding four movies to the current timeline. With the successful reception of Black Widow and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the future of Marvel looks brighter with its Phase 4 and other major projects. Here are the 10 upcoming major Marvel movies releasing in the next two years.
