The slate of new superhero movies has been shaken up considerably in recent months. Marvel Phase 5 may have begun but, even with Marvel Phase 6 and James Gunn's DCU Chapter One: Gods and Monsters over the horizon, the schedules are on unsteady footing. Delays, it seems, are coming thick and fast.
The Marvels hits the cosmos in November, while Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom splashes down in December. Beyond that, Kraven goes on the hunt, Captain America enters a brave new world, and a certain Man of Steel is set to soar once more...
So… there’s a lot to catch up on. In our guide to new superhero movies, we aim to take you through the next few years of DC and Marvel roadmaps. But, fair warning: some may still be canceled or will move, so watch this space and keep this page bookmarked for all the latest movers and shakers.

New superhero movies (TBA)
Various new superhero movies have been announced and are in various stages of pre-development. It's no guarantee that any of these, bar a few MCU offerings, make it to the big screen, but they're worth keeping an eye on all the same. Any previous DC project, such as Gotham City Sirens and Green Lantern Corps, are now dead under the new DC Studios regime. Co-CEO James Gunn announced the slate for DCU's Chapter One: Gods and Monsters in January 2023.
Deadpool 3 is the big addition to this list, with a delay seemingly confirmed. Captain America: Brave New World could end up taking its May 2024 slot. Beyond the Spider-Verse has also been indefinitely delayed and removed from the schedules.
- Deadpool 3 – TBA (Previously May 3, 2024)
