What to Expect From Marvel in 2023: There will be a ton of Marvel content available in 2023, whether you prefer your superhero adventures to be shown on the big screen, streamed on your phone, or in the form of traditional comic books.
Phase 5 of the MCU has begun, Sony is developing new live-action and animated Spider-Man films, and Marvel is commemorating the 60th anniversary of one of the most popular properties in history. Here is a list of every Marvel release in 2023, including movies, TV shows, comic books, and video games.
Phase 5 Of MCU Begins
2023 is going to be a pivotal year for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as it marks the start of Phase 5 and the point where the MCU shifts from introducing new heroes to laying the foundation for Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars.
Ant-Man And The Wasp
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania in February serves as the catalyst. In addition to seeing a teenage Cassie Lang (now played by Kathryn Newton) dress up with her father as Stature in this most recent sequel, Kang the Conqueror makes his MCU debut as a villain. We won’t see him for the foreseeable future.
Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, and Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne are all reprising their roles in Quantumania. Additionally, Bill Murray is joining the MCU, and MODOK will even make an appearance.
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3
The Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 3 will be the next MCU film to be released, and it will arrive in theaters on May 5. As James Gunn says goodbye to the series and the MCU as a whole, prepare for many teary farewells.
The third installment of the Guardians franchise follows Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and his dysfunctional family as they look for Gamora (Zoe Saldana), who has vanished, and as they square off against The High Evolutionary (Chukwudi Iwuji). Will Poulter’s Adam Warlock will also make his debut in this sequel, though it’s unclear how his role will play out in the MCU after Infinity War.
The third new MCU film in 2023, The Marvels, completes the slate. The Captain Marvel sequel, which hits theaters on July 28, stars Teyonah Parris as the newly empowered Monica Rambeau, Iman Vellani as Ms. Marvel, and Brie Larson as the title character. Although we don’t yet fully understand Marvel’s storyline, we are already prepared for all the sequences in which Kamala freaks out when she finally gets to meet her superhero idol.
MCU Series On Disney+
Over the course of 2023, expect Disney+ to release a ton more MCU programs. Second seasons are being given to What If…? and Loki, with the latter examining the effects of Season 1’s shocking finale and the demise of He Who Remains.
Early in 2023, Secret Invasion will launch. In this suspenseful drama, Nick Fury, played by Samuel L. Jackson, finally assumes the lead role as he attempts to unravel an alien conspiracy. Fans will also get to meet the renegade Skrull Gravik (Kingsley Ben-Adir) and Fury’s former assistant Sonya Falstaff in addition to returning favorites like Cobie Smulders’ Maria Hill, Ben Mendelsohn’s Talos, and Don Cheadle’s James Rhodes (Olivia Colman).
In 2023, Alaqua Cox’s character Echo will get her own television series. The expected appearances of Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk make this series the ideal lead-in to the upcoming Daredevil: Born Again.
In 2023, Dominique Thorne’s Ironheart will also have a spinoff program. Ironheart, which is set after Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, pits Riri Williams against the superhuman criminal known as The Hood in her own Chicago (Anthony Ramos).
Finally, Agatha: Coven of Chaos is anticipated to wrap out the MCU’s 2023 slate. The closest thing we’ll ever see to WandaVision Season 2 is likely this television series, which features Kathryn Hahn as Agatha Harkness. Will Wanda however actually show up? We are aware that Aubrey Plaza and Joe Locke also appear in the series; the latter is thought to be portraying an older version of Wanda’s magically inclined son, Wiccan.
Dark Web And Sins Of Sinister
With ongoing series like X-Men, Immortal X-Men, and X-Men Red investigating the ongoing effects of the significant alterations made back in 2019’s House of X and Powers of X, Marvel is continuing to stake a lot of money on the X-Men line in 2023. In the first few months of the year, two significant X-Men crossovers are anticipated.
Dark Web pairs Madelyne Pryor and Ben Reilly, the two angrier clones in the Marvel Universe, against Spider-Man and the X-Men. Then, Sins of Sinister leaps into the Marvel Universe’s future to investigate what transpires when this cunning scientist ultimately betrays the country of Krakoa.
Fall Of X
But the biggest X-Men comic of 2023 is undoubtedly Fall of X. We don’t know much about Fall of X other than that it’s coming in the latter half of the year.
But after watching the Krakoan dream slowly collapse in on itself due to in-fighting and betrayal, it sounds like things are about to come crashing down hard for the X-Men. Will there still be a Krakoa when the dust settles?
Finally, we’d be negligent if we didn’t mention Scarlet Witch, a brand-new monthly book that gives Wanda Maximoff a lethal new outfit and a drastically changed status quo. Wanda is set to team up with the one and only Darcy Lewis, who is about to make the transition from the MCU to Marvel’s comic book realm, in addition to launching her own witchcraft shop.
Other Marvel Games
While there is no chance that Insomniac will release its Wolverine game in 2019, we are hoping to see more of their most recent Marvel game.
The same holds true for the other shrouded Marvel games in development, including Skydance’s Captain America and Black Panther game and EA’s Iron Man. We can hopefully end the year with a much better understanding of what to anticipate from these significant Marvel games.
Which Marvel movie are you most anticipating for 2023? What on earth is Fall of X, exactly? Comment your thoughts.
