In three weeks, the first huge book of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to conclude with Avengers: Endgame, and a lot of people aren’t ready for it. While some of the characters in that film will still be seen in other releases over the years, it could be the last time for Iron Man, Captain America, and others. That being said, it’s time to look at the full schedule of comic book movies coming out for both Marvel and DC through 2022.
When it comes to the future of comic book movies, any of the upcoming films are going to have a very big task in front of them. As reported by Superhero Hype, it is looking like Avengers: Endgame is in line to destroy records set by previous films in the MCU and throughout any movie genre.
There could always be others who step up and take the box office crown, but it’s going to be quite difficult to accomplish that after Endgame.
All of the dates that you see below are confirmed as of this writing, but that doesn’t mean they won’t change. For now, these are the comic book movies which are being released for both the DC Extended Universe and Marvel Cinematic Universe through 2022.

While there are a lot of dates known, there are not a lot of titles to look forward to as of this time. That is mostly due to Marvel choosing to keep their Phase 4 films a closely guarded secret until after the events of Avengers: Endgame.
Some films such as Black Widow and Guardians 3 are confirmed to be on the way, but their release dates could fall into any of the above slots. The same holds true for more X-Men movies, Fantastic Four, and a possible third Deadpool movie as Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox is now complete.
