Marvel has come out with a slew of news for 2023 regarding the Marvel Cinematic Universe fans know and love. Let’s dig into some of the latest updates.
According to multiple news outlets, Fantastic Four will finally be headed to the theatres and the project is reportedly set to go before cameras in 2023. No casting for the film has yet been announced as of yet. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has discussed in interviews the matter of who will portray the Fantastic Four and has expressed that he wants to find the best actor for each given role. Fantastic Four movies have had tricky success results over the decades but maybe this time, the studio will bring a brand new and action-filled adventure for audiences to enjoy.
Marvel will begin production on a Thunderbolts film adaptation. The Thunderbolts are a superhero team consisting mostly of reformed supervillains. There have been many iterations of the Thunderbolts since 1996 but this will be the first film adaptation produced for the series. Marvel Studios has already introduced several Thunderbolts members in the MCU, the most notable characters being Baron Zemo, who played a key role in Captain America: Civil War, and Crossbones- who will likely not appear due to being killed off early in the same film.
Marvel is reportedly moving forward on a Shang-Chi 2 and a Black Panther: Wakanda Forever spinoff series featuring Danai Gurira as Okoye. Additionally, a Nova is allegedly headed to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2023, but the film has not officially been announced by Marvel Studios or Disney just yet.
