The 2021 Superhero Movie Schedule

Note: The two female lead superhero films for the year of 2020 (if we don't count team effort Birds O'Prey) are Black Widow and Wonder Woman 84 and they're both flashback tales.

Birds of Prey - February 7, 2020

Margot Robbie is Harley Quinn, Mary Elizabeth Winstead is Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell is Black Canary, Ella Jay Basco is Cassandra Cain and Rosie Perez is Renee Montoya, Gotham cop. The trailer doesn't show much except a Suicide Squad-ish mess of mayhem. 

Bloodshot - March 13, 2020

Vin Diesel is Bloodshot, hero from a non-DC or Marvel company, i.e., Valiant Comics.

The New Mutants - April 3, 2020

This is the last film made by 20th Century Fox before the Mouse bought the company. May be a quasi-horror film.

Black Widow - May 1, 2020

Scarlett Johansson back in tights in a film that should've been made at least six years or more years ago, but at least it's arriving now... said to include some Downey, Jr., as Mr. Stark, in flashback.

Wonder Woman 1984 - June 5, 2020

A lot of media people are betting this will be the biggest superhero hit of 2020. No doubt Gal Gadot will do a good job (again) as Princess Diana but reshoots and tinkering by nervous DC/Warners isn't exactly a good sign. Will the title tie into an authentic Orwellian theme? Hope so.

Morbius - July 31, 2020

Jared Leto as a Marvel vampire and it is not Blade, but the classic Living Vampire from a more golden age of Marvel Comics, filmed by Sony. Since it is coming from Sony, will it be an entertaining mess like Venom or the discouraging mess of Fantastic Four rebooted? (To see how Morbius ties to Batman in a microscopic way see this nerdist article.)

Venom II - Oct. 2, 2020

Tom Hardy goes up against Carnage. The director is none other than Andy Serkis.

Eternals - Nov. 6, 2020

Kumail Nanjiani, Salma Hayek, Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan, Brian Tyree Henry, Richard Madden and Kit Harington.
