Marvel Studios has finally set a Captain Marvel 2 release date, as fans can now expect a sequel to Marvel’s first female-led superhero movie to arrive in 2022.
The announcement came as part of a major shift in the release date calendar for a number of Disney movies on account of the coronavirus shutdown. Mulan now arrives in July (hopefully), Artemis Fowl is going straight to Disney+, and Black Widow—originally set to open in May—has been pushed back to November.
As for Captain Marvel 2, the superhero sequel will fly into theaters on July 8, 2022, taking the slot of the previously untitled Marvel movie that was originally set to open July 29, 2022.
The first details for Captain Marvel 2 arrived earlier this year. Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who directed the first movie, are not expected to return. Megan McDonnell is reportedly being eyed to write the script, while the hunt for a new director is also on.
