There's only one MCU superhero flick premiering next year.

After a lot of rescheduling and delays caused by the Hollywood strikes as well as inner studio shake-ups, there are four Marvel movies premiering next year, with a fifth in question.

So get out your 2024 calendars, Marvel Comics fans, let's mark the dates.

1. February 14: Madame Web

Sony continues to introduce new characters from Marvel Comics to its Spider-Man Universe (SSU), which already includes Tom Hardy's Venom and Jared Leto's Morbius.

The new movie is set to be the fourth installment in the franchise and focus on the origin story of Madame Web (Dakota Johnson), who in the comics has the ability to see the future of the multiverse, and her fight against Ezekiel Sims (Tahar Rahim), who hunts her and other Spider-People, according to the trailer.

The movie has a famous television director S. J. Clarkson and an exciting star-studded cast, including Sydney Sweeney, Emma Roberts, Isabela Merced and Adam Scott, which coupled with an intriguing plot feels like a promising Valentine's week movie-going experience.

2. July 26: Deadpool 3

Behold the only Disney's MCU movie to hit theaters in 2024. Deadpool is set to be part of Marvel's Phase 5, which will focus on the multiverse saga and next year's box office hit.

Why are we so sure? It's simple, really. With the appearance of Hugh Jackman's Wolverine, the Shawn Levy-directed film will introduce mutants as major players in the MCU. And that's something fans have been anticipating for a long time.

In addition, casual viewers will undoubtedly enjoy the hilarious dynamic between Jackman and Ryan Reynolds, who reprises his role as Deadpool, and the plot that further deepens the multiverse lore of the current MCU phase.

3. August 30: Kraven The Hunter

Three new movies are set to be added to the SSU next year. The second will introduce another Spider-Man antagonist as the lead character. This time it is Kraven the Hunter, portrayed by Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

The film will show the origin of the hero, which should be very different from the comics. The leopard-wearing, ruthless big game hunter is set to be presented on screen as the ultimate animal lover and protector, which can either make or break the upcoming premiere's chances of success.

Time will tell, we suppose.

4. November 8: Venom 3

The third Sony movie starring Tom Hardy will be released in November and is sure to draw a lot of fans to the theaters.

While not much is known about the plot and cast, there are rumors that Venom 3 may dive into the multiverse storyline, which would be natural considering Eddie Brock's unexpected cameo in Spider-Man: No Way Home. However, it doesn't look like Venom and Spidey will be meeting on the big screen next year.

'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.

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

Probably Sony's most anticipated Marvel project, and the one that will undoubtedly become the new box office hit, is the new entry in the Oscar-winning animated Spider-Verse, which is actually the second part of 2023's Across The Spider-Verse.

Originally scheduled to be released in March 2024, the film, which follows the new adventures of Miles Morales, has been delayed for an unknown amount of time due to the actors' strike. So while there's still a chance for a 2024 premiere, 2025 isn't out of the question either.
