The movie company Marvel Entertainment has dominated the cinema industry for years. The reason for this is the countless superhero films. These have entirely redefined the genre. Decisive is a lot of stars, top-class actors and an ever new approach to bombastic action films. Although Marvel is at home in the superhero genre, it constantly relocates its works to other genres. That has led to unprecedented success. But this continues to put the film forge under pressure.
The meticulous planner Kevin Feige created the so-called Marvel Cinematic Universe with his films. That should enter its fourth phase in 2020. The events that have kept the world in suspense since spring 2020 have brought his film universe to a standstill. Unlike Christopher Nolan, Feige did not want to risk anything and withdrew his finished films from the cinemas. While the blockbusters Tenet and Wonder Woman achieved average results, Feige bet on time. But this strategy is starting to become its problem for Marvel Entertainment.
WandaVision Teases The Future
After all, the producer related all of the MCU’s films in some way., The movies have to come to the cinemas to continue the story as a whole. There is also a company division for which Feige has also been responsible for some time. These are the real Marvel TV series. There were already plenty of series before but had nothing to do with the MCU. It is different now. Feige has commissioned several shows. The first of these is WandaVision.
The innovative series has already run and lays the basis for the supposed further development of the films. Two more series are already rolling and continue the storylines from the last Avengers film. That puts Marvel under time pressure. Finally, the movie is already starting to jam. Initially, after the grand finale of Phase 3 in 2020, they wanted to take things a little easier. With Black Widow and The Eternals, Marvel planed only two films. But now, the company already has four films up their sleeve for 2021. And that’s not all the numerous sequels want to be filmed. WandaVision already gives evidence of Doctor Strange 2, so something has to happen soon from Marvel’s perspective. Because the Asian hero Shang-Shi and Spiderman are already on a call.
If everything goes well, Marvel fans can look forward to no fewer than six films between May 2021 and March 2022. Of course, this harbours the risk of oversaturation. At the same time, Marvel can’t postpone its movies forever. Therefore, the makers and the entire industry hope to experience a halfway typical cinema summer. Because this game can’t go on for a long time, alternatively, they can exploit it via Disney’s streaming channel Disney +. That recently exceeded 100 million users worldwide. But whether the proceeds from this recycling would be enough to cover the costs is questionable. Disney already tested Mulan for the first time. Now the industry is eagerly waiting to see if the Marvel schedule holds this year.
