For the first time since 2009, the world went the year without a single Marvel Studios project. During the Disney Investors Day presentation on Dec. 10, studio chief Kevin Feige made clear that, should all go to plan, by the end of 2021, Marvel will come roaring back with a whopping 10 titles in theaters and on Disney Plus — and at least 15 more in the works for 2022 and beyond. Here's what’s in store.
As head of all things Marvel at Disney, Feige has been the hands-on producer of some of the biggest blockbusters of all time, including the all-time box office champ, “Avengers: Endgame,” which grossed nearly $2.8 billion worldwide. Marvel Studios’ first 23 movies all opened atop the box office, collectively grossing over $22.6 billion worldwide, with nine passing the $1 billion threshold. Even though the pandemic has kept the masses away from theaters, Feige’s streak will surely continue once “Black Widow,” “The Eternals,” “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” and “Thor: Love & Thunder” stick to their release dates from 2021 onward. He’s also been producing Marvel series for the Disney Plus streaming platform, including “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” “WandaVision,” “Loki” and “She-Hulk”, among eight other series set to stream on the service, with six in total scheduled for 2021 premieres.
