Some movies get their release dates and bam, release on time. Others are… not so lucky.
But we aren’t here to discuss the movies that did NOT release on time, rather the ones that will(hopefully)!!!
Here are just some of the recent movie date announcements we have!
Joker: Folie á Deux(Joker 2) – October 4th, 2024
The second installment into the Joker series is set to release October 4th of 2024. Lead actor Joaquin Phoenix is set to return as Arthur Fleck with Todd Phillips set to return to direct the flick. The major casting news for the movie came in the seemingly costar to Phoenix being Lady Gaga, who confirmed her involvement in the film. The current expectation is for her to play this universes Harley Quinn in the musically-styled Joker sequel.
Sonic the Hedgehog 3 – December 20th, 2024
The blue blur is BACK!!! After two record breaking films for the video game to big screen genre, Sonic is set to return in the third installment of the character. The end credit scene in Sonic 2 set up Shadow the Hedgehog to be involved in the story, adapting(most likely) from the Sonic Adventure 2/Sonic Adventure 2: Battle timeline of games. No official casting announcements have been made, but the cast that could return includes Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic, Colleen O’Shaughnessey as Miles “Tails” Prower, Idris Elba as Knuckles the Echidna, James Marsden as Tom Wachowski, Tika Sumpter as Maddie Wachowski, and Lee Majdoub as Agent Stone. Many fans of the games and films would expect Jim Carrey to return as Doctor “Eggman” Robotnik in the film if the films follow the game series closely, but that has been put in doubt with Carrey having recently announced his retirement from the movie business. It is unclear at the moment who would be playing Shadow the Hedgehog at this time.
Avengers: The Kang Dynasty – May 2nd, 2025
The fifth Avengers installment is set to release in the spring of 2025, with a cast and plot currently unconfirmed. Rumors are swirling as to who may be involved, but we will not make any guesses at the moment as to what current, new, and former Avengers may appear in this or the subsequent Avengers: Secret Wars films. Marvel never misses, so do not be afraid.
