Unveiling the Marvel Movies and Series Lineup for 2024

Share :

2024 is shaping up to be an exciting year for Marvel fans, with several highly-anticipated movies and TV series set to premiere. However, recent schedule changes have led to some confusion regarding exactly which titles will arrive next year. In this post, we’ll break down the latest information on Marvel’s 2024 film and streaming slate.

Marvel’s 2024 Film Lineup

Between Sony and the MCU, there are a number of exciting Marvel movies set to release in 2024. While the MCU tends to get the most attention, Sony’s Spider-Man Universe films like Across the Spider-Verse have shown that non-MCU Marvel movies can find great success too. This makes 2024’s mixed bag of titles particularly anticipated.

However, recent changes due to production delays and strikes have led to some shake-ups regarding which movies will actually hit theaters next year. Release dates have shifted around, with some films moved up into 2024 while others got pushed back. Nevertheless, 2024 still promises to deliver a diverse lineup of superhero films.

In addition to the theatrical releases, Marvel will continue expanding its Disney+ streaming series universe in 2024 as well. Though exact premiere dates are still unconfirmed, several new shows have been announced to arrive next year.

Overview of Release Date Changes and Confusions

When Disney acquired 20th Century Fox, Deadpool 3 was set to mark the return of Fox characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). It was originally scheduled for November 2024 but got pushed to July 2026 to allow more production time without rush. Similarly, Captain America: New World Order and Thunderbolts shifted to 2025.

Conversely, some Sony films like Madame Web moved up thanks to date changes. Others such as Kraven the Hunter were delayed to distance themselves from poorly-received movies like Morbius. Ultimately though, the current lineup still promises to satisfy Marvel fans.

On the streaming side, the Daredevil: Born Again series was removed from 2024 after production delays. But Disney+ added a new animated show, Eyes of Wakanda, centering on Black Panther’s home nation.

Madame Web: A New Addition to the Spider-Man Universe

Madame Web is set in Sony’s Spider-Man Universe and focuses on clairvoyant Cassandra Webb (played by Dakota Johnson) who can peer into different dimensions. It hits theaters on February 14, 2024 after getting moved up by two days.

Key Characters in Madame Web:

  • Cassandra Webb/Madame Web – Dakota Johnson
  • Julia Carpenter/Spider-Woman – Sydney Sweeney
  • Mattie Franklin/Spider-Woman – Celeste O’Connor
  • Anya Corazon/Spider-Girl – Isabela Merced
  • Ezekiel Sim – Tahar Rahim

In the comics, Madame Web is an elderly, paralyzed, and blind woman with powers to observe the multiverse. Theories suggest the movie could feature a major multiversal event based on set photos showing Tahar Rahim in a Spider-Man-esque costume.

With Madame Web’s role in the comics, her all-star cast, and the popularity of the multiverse concept, the movie has strong breakout potential when it swings into theaters.

Deadpool 3: The Return of Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman

Deadpool 3 sees Ryan Reynolds reprise his role as the Merc with a Mouth alongside Hugh Jackman as Wolverine for the first time in the MCU. It hits theaters on July 26, 2024 after getting pushed back from May to allow more production time.

Confirmed Marvel Cameos in Deadpool 3:

Franchise stars Morena Baccarin (Vanessa), Leslie Uggams (Blind Al), and Karan Soni (Dopinder) will return too. Plot details are mostly unknown but rumors suggest a multiverse-related story involving Owen Wilson’s Mobius from Loki. As the first R-rated film under the Marvel Studios banner, hopes are high for Deadpool 3.

Kraven the Hunter: An Altered Origin Story for a Classic Villain

Kraven the Hunter stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Spider-Man villain Sergei Kravinoff. Rather than facing Spider-Man, this film will apparently showcase an altered origin story positioning Kraven as an antihero.

It hits theatres on August 30, 2024 after getting delayed from October 2023. This distance from Morbius could help it dodge unwanted associations. The plot seems geared to set up a Sinister Six crossover, should the film succeed. Venom 3 star Tom Hardy has even expressed interest in Kraven battling Spider-Man someday.

Venom 3: Concluding Sony’s Symbiote Trilogy

Venom 3 wraps up Sony’s trilogy starring Tom Hardy as lethal protector Eddie Brock and his alien symbiote partner. It picks up after the events of Let There Be Carnage and Spider-Man: No Way Home, which briefly transported Hardy into the MCU.

While little is known regarding the plot, the movie’s November 8, 2024 release date came after a delay from June. This allows more spacing from Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse which features a cameo of Hardy’s Venom meeting a variant Mrs. Chen. The threequel could explore more multiverse connections or introduce new symbiote characters.

Spider-Man Beyond the SpiderVerse: Continuing Miles Morales’ Journey

Beyond the Spider-Verse follows this year’s Across the Spider-Verse film and completes Miles Morales’ trip through the multiverse. Originally slated for March 2024, production delays and voice actor strikes led Sony to remove the release date.

A 2024 premiere is still possible, but pushing Beyond the SpiderVerse to 2025 may work better timeline-wise. Fans eagerly await the next chapter after Across the Spider-Verse earned critical and commercial success earlier this year.

MCU Series Releasing in 2024: From Daredevil Born Again to Eyes of Wakanda

While no exact Disney+ premiere dates are confirmed yet, 2024 will see several new Marvel streaming shows. Echo spins off Alaqua Cox’s deaf heroine Maya Lopez in January. X-Men ‘97 revives the beloved 1990s animated series. Agatha: Coven of Chaos brings back Kathryn Hahn’s witch.

The newly retitled Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man series joins the lineup, as does the freshly announced Eyes of Wakanda animated show. Speculative series like Marvel Zombies also look likely to arrive sometime in 2024 as well.

Conclusion: Anticipating a Stellar Year for Marvel Fans

Despite some shuffling on the calendar, 2024 remains a big year for Marvel Studios theatrical releases and Disney+ shows. Madame Web, Deadpool 3, Kraven the Hunter, and Venom 3 headline the film slate. Plus, Spider-Man Beyond the Spider-Verse likely drops at some point too.

Meanwhile, Echo, X-Men ‘97, multiple Spider-Man cartoons, and more await on Disney+. Once exact streaming premiere dates get confirmed, the full scope of Marvel’s 2024 offerings will come into clearer focus.

Needless to say, with all these movies and shows on the horizon, Marvel fans have plenty to get hyped for next year!
