Last week, WarnerMedia made the surprising and unprecedented decision to release Patty Jenkins‘ highly anticipated superhero sequel Wonder Woman 1984 into theaters on Christmas Day and also simultaneously release it on HBO Max in the United States. (I say “unprecedented” because this is the first time a mega-budgeted superhero film will be put straight onto a streaming service and subscribers will not be charged extra to watch it.)
But when will you get to see the movie if you’re not in the U.S.? And if you are in the States, exactly how long will you need to be on guard to dodge spoilers? Check out a list of the international Wonder Woman 1984 release dates below.

So far, Marvel’s teases of WandaVision have leaned heavily on the black and white, classic television sitcom world that Wanda Maxmioff and Vision find themselves living within. This makes the upcoming series on Disney+ unlike any Marvel Studios project we’ve seen before, but the emulation of classic sitcoms like I Love Lucy and Bewitched is just the beginning of WandaVision‘s journey through sitcom history.
In a new interview, Marvel Studios boxx Kevin Feige said WandaVision‘s journey through sitcom tropes will take us right up to the popular mockumentary style present in the likes of The Office, Parks and Recreation, and Modern Family. Read More »

In the wake of Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman‘s surprising and tragic death, we assumed that Marvel Studios and director Ryan Coogler would put the planned Black Panther 2 on the back burner while they grieved and figured out the best way to move forward with the sequel to the billion dollar hit.
But apparently they’ve already figured things out – or at least to such a degree that a production start date has already been set. A new report says that Black Panther 2 will begin filming in July 2021, just four months after its initial planned production start. And not only that, but the movie has also found an actor to play one of its villains.

It looks like Thor: Love and Thunder is going to have such a big cast of Marvel players that it might end up feeling like Avengers 5. The Taika Waititi sequel is of course bringing back key players Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, and Natalie Portman. But a new report points to a “sprawling cast” that suggests the film might follow in the footsteps of Captain America: Civil War – a movie that features multiple key Marvel characters without being a big Avengers sequel.
