Monday Movie Report: Disney/Marvel schedule release dates

While details and titles for several upcoming Marvel movies remain undisclosed, the studio and parent company Disney have scheduled many of them for release.

According to The Wrap, Marvel Studios and Disney set release dates for five untitled films on Oct. 2, 2022, Feb. 17, 2023, May 5, 2023, July 28, 2023 and Nov. 3, 2023.

Meanwhile, already titled Marvel movies with release dates include the following:

  • Black Widow,” May 1, 2020.
  • “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” Feb. 12, 2021.
  • “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” May 7, 2021.
  • “Thor: Love and Thunder,” Nov. 5, 2021.
  • “Black Panther,” May 6, 2022.

Possible movies in the untitled line-up could be “Blade” with Mahershala Ali, which was introduced as an upcoming picture back at Comic-Con. Other potential pictures could be sequels to either “Captain Marvel” and/or “Guardians of the Galaxy.”

What’s still to be determined is if the untitled pictures will include a team-up movie and if so, if it will be another “Avengers.”

At the box office this weekend, “Ford v Ferrari” finished first with more than $31 million. The racing biopic dominated the box office, taking down the new comer “Charlie’s Angels” by a lot, as the spy remake grossed just $8.6 million.

The full top five was:
1. Ford v Ferrari – $31,037,000
2. Midway – $8,750,000
3. Charlie’s Angels – $8,600,000
4. Playing with Fire – $8,550,000
5. Last Christmas – $6,700,000

For the upcoming weekend, new releases include the animated sequel “Frozen II,” the biopic “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” and the action flick “21 Bridges.”

On the small screen, meanwhile, new releases this week are:

  • Dora and the Lost City of Gold, my rating: 3.75 out of 5, Large Association of Movie Blogs rating: 3.09 out of 5, Rotten Tomatoes rating: 84%, MetaCritic rating: 63.
