“The world may change and evolve, but the one thing that will never change: we’re all part of one big family.”
As the world slowly starts to find its footing once more, so too one of the greatest past time activities; going to the cinema.
One studio that has arguably reshaped the movie-going experience and transformed the act into more of an institution is Marvel Studios. In a bid to showcase their affection of all things cinema – and shamelessly plug their own brand – they have compiled a love letter dedicated to their own greatest hits, as well as hinting at what’s to come in the anticipated Phase 4 of their narrative.
Against scenes from such staple Marvel titles as Iron Man, Thor, The Avengers, Black Panther, and the viral moment of an opening night session of Avengers: Endgame that resulted in an eruption of cheer from its audience, the late Stan Lee narrates “That man next to you; he’s your brother. That woman over there; she’s your sister. We’re all part of one universe that moves ever upward and onward to greater glory.”
Before closing out on the slate of upcoming Phase 4 titles, such as Spider-Man: No Way Home (December 17th, 2021), Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness (March 25th, 2022), Thor: Love and Thunder (May 6th, 2022), Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (July 8th, 2022), the Captain Marvel sequel The Marvels (November 11th, 2022), Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (February 17th, 2023), and Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3 (May 5th, 2023), we are treated to select footage from the soon-to-be-released Black Widow (July 9th, 2021) and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (September 3rd, 2021), as well as the anticipated Eternals (November 5th, 2021), starring Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek, and directed by Academy Award winner Chloe Zhao (Nomadland).
See you all at the cinemas!
