A surprising addition to the list is a spin-off movie about the cult favorite superheroes Squirrel Girl and Rocket Racoon. Announced as “The Rocket and Squirrel Show”, this movie marks a first foray into teen comedy for Marvel Studios and introduces a variety of new characters, many of whom are set to appear in MCU films in the future.
On the sequel side, 2023 will see the continuation of both the Doctor Strange and X-Men trilogies, with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Third Class X-Men, respectively. This promises to be an exciting new chapter in the history of Marvel Studios, with many old favorites reprising their roles.
The final movie of 2023 from the talented team at Marvel Studios is Captain Marvel 2, though the specifics are very sparse at this moment. All that is known is that it is expected to be one of the biggest and most exciting installments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet.
