2020 may have been absent of any Marvel Cinematic Universe movies but that won’t be the case next year. And, barring another unforeseen global catastrophe, any other year in the foreseeable future. This is Disney’s cash cow and they are not done cashing in yet. To that point, five, yes five, MCU movies are scheduled to hit theaters in 2022. Black Panther 2 and Captain Marvel 2 are on the calendar for the second part of the year. However, the movie sandwiched between them has yet to be revealed, which leaves a bit of room for speculation.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will hit theaters first on March 5, 2022. Thor: Love and Thunder will follow on May 6, 2022. Black Panther 2 is currently dated for July 8, 2022, with Captain Marvel 2 set to close things out on November 11, 2022. That alone would be a packed slate. But, sandwiched between the world of Wakanda and the return of Carol Danvers is a mystery Marvel movie, which is dated for October 7, 2022. The question now is the obvious one; what is it? For now, all we can do is reasonably speculate but there are a couple of contenders.
