Which one are you most looking forward to?

The Hollywood strikes last year caused quite a stir in the release schedule for shows and movies. In addition, the superhero genre as a whole seems to be going through a period of change.

Unconventional takes on superheroes, such as The Boys and Peacemaker, are gaining more and more audience love, while interest in traditional comic-based stories seems to be waning.

So Marvel Studios, led by Kevin Feige, decided to take a new approach to their content production. Now it is all about quality over quantity, something the fans certainly agree with.

In contrast, another Marvel Comics rights holder, Sony, has decided to go in a different direction, premiering four new superhero flicks this year. With Madame Web already released, there are three more to go.

So, Marvel Comics fans, let's get out our 2024 calendars and start marking the dates.

1. July 26th: Deadpool & Wolverine

This is undoubtedly the most important and anticipated event in the Marvel world this year (sorry, Sony). Set within Phase 5, Deadpool & Wolverine will bridge the TVA Loki storyline to the future of the multiverse saga. Disney has seemingly bet the farm on the film, making it the MCU's only theatrical premiere in 2024, and we're sure it won't disappoint.

Why is that? It's simple, really. The hilarious dynamic between Ryan Reynold and Hugh Jackman has been entertaining fans for years, and now that their characters have finally come together on screen, the emotional explosion is guaranteed.

Plus, the movie will introduce mutants as major players in the MCU. And that's a big deal. We really can't wait.

2. August 30th: Kraven The Hunter

In this upcoming Sony movie, Aaron Taylor-Johnson stars as another of Spider-Man's adversaries turned hero, Kraven the Hunter.

The film will follow the antihero's origin story, which is set to differ from the comic book lore. The leopard-clad, relentless big-game hunter becomes the ultimate animal advocate and protector on screen, which could either make or break the new franchise. After the epic failure of Madame Web earlier this year, the latter seems more plausible. But only time will tell.

3. October 25th: Venom: The Last Dance

Mark your calendars for the week leading up to Halloween as Tom Hardy is back in the third Venom installment, likely to pack theaters with eager fans.

Though plot and cast details are scarce, the whispers in the rumor mill point to an exciting crossover with the MCU's Spider-Man. And they would be plausible, given Eddie Brock's surprise cameo in Spider-Man: No Way Home, were it not for the filmmaker's denial.

'I know everyone is desperate for Venom to meet Spider-Man. I know that. But I think there's real mileage in some of the other supervillains that reside in Ravencroft,' Venom 2 director Andy Serkis told Screen Rant back in 2021.

So it looks like Venom and Spidey won't be crossing paths on the big screen. Not this year, anyway.

Do you think we'll ever see two Toms (Hardy and Holland) together in a Marvel movie?

4. TBA: Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse

This is hands down the most anticipated Sony premiere based on the Marvel Comics. The new installment of the Oscar-winning animated Spider-Verse was originally set for a March 2024 release, but the Hollywood strikes delayed the premiere indefinitely.

So while fans are hoping to see new adventures of Miles Morales this year, a 2025 release isn't out of the question either. Sad as it may be.
