 wants to see you at the movies. The Marvel Cinematic Universe's 2022 and 2023 film slate expanded Monday with a new sizzle reel showing off its forthcoming superhero adventures, revealing that Black Panther 2 is titled Wakanda Forever, Captain Marvel 2 will be called The Marvels -- and the Fantastic Four are coming soon.

The teaser trailer continues Phase 4 of the MCU with a first look at Eternals, starring Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani and Gemma Chan. Game of Thrones alums Richard Madden and Kit Harrington also appear. Eternals is directed by Chloe Zhao, who just won the Oscar for best director, and will be released Nov. 4.

Black Panther's new title comes as the sequel gets ready for filming without the original's lead, the late Chadwick Boseman. Actress Lupita Nyong'o recently told Yahoo it will be "reshaped" by director Ryan Coogler to be respectful to the loss of the actor to colon cancer last summer. It's scheduled for release July 8, 2022.

Captain Marvel returns Nov. 11, 2022. The Marvels will bring back Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, but is also set to tie in with two Disney Plus series: WandaVision's Teyonah Parris will reprise her role as Monica Rambeau, while Iman Vellani brings Ms Marvel (aka Kamala Khan) to the big screen after her own series streams on Disney Plus some time this year.

We also get release dates for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, coming Feb. 17, 2023, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, expected May 5, 2023. Both 2023 sequels were previously listed as "Untitled Marvel" films on Disney's release schedule.

And while no date or other information was revealed, the sizzle included a flash of the number four, teasing the eventual debut of a Fantastic Four film currently reported to be helmed by Spider-Man director Jon Watts.


The Fantastic Four is still coming to Marvel Studios, as hinted in Monday's teaser.

The trailer opens with a message from Stan Lee about connecting with people. Along with footage from past hits there's a clip of audiences cheering the climax of Avengers: Endgame in theaters on opening night in 2019, an experience many are likely missing amid the pandemic.

Footage from the upcoming Black Widow solo adventure (debuting July 9 in theaters and on Disney Plus) as well as Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (debuting Sept. 3 in theaters) also had moments during the sizzle.
