Movies Coming in 2022 From Marvel, Netflix, DC and More
Knives Out 2, Nope, Black Panther 2 and Avatar 2: It’s a big year for blockbusters, even though Madame Web, Bullet Train, Mario, Black Adam and The Flash are delayed again.
It’s official: 2022 is the year of the sequel. Movie theaters have been dominated by franchise films for years, but the pandemic has crunched the past couple of years’ worth of blockbusters into one bonanza year at the box office (apart from the ones that are delayed until 2023).
These are the latest dates for your calendar as we celebrate the big films (and hopefully a few smaller ones) hitting the big screen and streaming services in 2022 and beyond.
Thor: Love and Thunder, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness are among the superhero flicks that have hit the big screen, with Black Panther sequel Wakanda Forever coming later this year. There are also new movies from older franchises like Jurassic World: Dominion (which arrived in June) and Avatar 2: The Way of Water. Luckily, original flicks will arrive as well, including Jordan Peel’s Nope, Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon and David O Russell’s Amsterdam, which has an unbelievable cast of massive stars.
But delays are still happening: Bullet Train, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, the Mario movie, The Rock’s Black Adam, Aquaman 2, Madame Web and The Flash are all postponed. Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible 7 and 8 have been pushed back multiple times.
It’s been tough to keep up with all the changes during the pandemic, from the everything-gets-canceled start through the delta variant and then the omicron surge. But we’ve got you covered on the latest US release dates for 2022. If these dates are still in flux, we’ll let you know about the latest changes as new dates are announced.
