Now that we have concluded looking back, it is time to switch gears and start to look to the future. There are several films and TV shows that I am excited to see.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 is my most anticipated film. I am afraid that Guardians Vol 3 is going to rip our hearts out. Someone from the Guardians is going to die. I think that is clear. Before that comes along, Ant Man and the Wasp: Quantumania introduces us to Kang the Conqueror, the next big bad in the MCU. Jonathan Majors was awesome when we saw him first on Loki as a Kang variant. Things should get crazy. Marvel Studios also has The Marvels and I can’t wait to continue the story of Ms. Marvel as she joins Captain Marvel and Monica Rambeau. Sony will be releasing Spider-Man: Across the Spider-verse Part 1, the follow up to the Oscar winning animated movie.
DC will hopefully finally release Shazam: Fury of the Gods. I mean Helen Mirren as the villain? Hot damn. Blue Beetle is getting a theatrical release and I’ve always enjoyed this character. Outside of superhero films, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny looks absolutely awesome. I just hope this is better than the last Indy movie. With James Mangold I’m sure it will be excellent. John Wick 4 is always an exciting film franchise. We get a new Scream movie too, Scream VI, one year after the fifth installment. Then… there is what has to be a film unlike anything we have ever seen… Cocaine Bear.
The TV show I am most excited about is Secret Invasion with Nick Fury and the Skrulls. The few scenes I’ve seen is absolutely thrilling and I cannot wait to see where the show goes. I hope that Secret Invasion gives us that spy action such as Winter Soldier.
Marvel has a ton of series coming in 2023 including Loki Season 2, Echo, Agatha: Coven of Chaos and Ironheart. Disney + will be on fire. There is also the Mandalorian Season 3 and Ahsoka from the Star Wars universe. Hopefully these will be more like Andor instead of Obi-Wan Kenobi or Book of Boba Fett. The animated series of Velma on HBO Max looks cool, especially with the voice of Weird Al Yankovic in th show.
