Earlier this month Marvel Studios released a trailer for phase 4 of the MCU. This cinematic trailer showcased new titles like Black Panther Wakanda Forever and The Marvels. It also contained release dates for each film, all the way to 2023 with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
When it comes to the MCU, we at Bluefin are very much excited for the release of each film. We can't wait to geek out about it with the fans during events, such as SDCC and NYCC or even during our Bluefin Hangout live streams. Let's take a look at some of the titles announced that we're excited for.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3.
What can we say? The Guardian movies have been a fun ride with a fantastic soundtrack. The cast is delightful, and always brings in amazing talent with each installment, such as Kurt Russell in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. With James Gunn at the helm, we can sure bet that the third installment of Guardians of the Galaxy will be full of adventure, some toe-tapping music, and a good laugh here and there. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is slated to release May 5th, 2023.
Thor: Love and Thunder
With a classic 80's styled retro wave look for their logo, Thor: Love and Thunder is a film we are eager to watch, because one, Taika Waititi will be back to direct the film, two, Natalie Portman will reprise her role as Jane Foster and as *SPOILERS* The Goddess of Thunder, Mighty Thor, and finally three, Korg; one of our favorite characters from the previous film. With the huge success of Thor: Ragnarok, we can only bet that Thor: Love and Thunder will have similar success. Thor: Love and Thunder is scheduled to release May 6, 2022.
Black Panter: Wakanda Forever
Black Panther released back in 2018, and we can say that after its release, it is one of our top Marvel movies. Ryan Coogler returns to direct the sequel, and with the passing of Chadwick Boseman, we are even more curious as to how they will tackle this film. Fans who watched the latest series, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier on Disney+, saw the return of the Dora Milaje, and they kicked butt, which makes us even more excited for us to return to Wakanda. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is set for July 8th, 2022, two months after Thor: Love and Thunder. It is going to be an exciting and MARVELous summer.
Those are just a few of the films announced that we're excited for. Truth be told we're eager to view all of them and will be patiently waiting for the release of each film. Aside from the films, we're also excited to see the future of toys and collectibles when these movies release. Tamashii Nations plays a huge role when it comes to the figure game and has released multiple S.H.Figuarts of characters from the MCU. From two versions of Thanos to several Iron Man suits, Tamashii Nations always brings the heat to their figure lineup. Until that day, we'll just have to wait.
