This week we have some news about Marvel and DC superhero movies.

First of all there is "Ant-Man 3". In a conversation with SiriusXM director Peyton Reed teased that the third "Ant-Man" part would be much bigger than its two predecessors. Of course Reed couldn't or didn't want to go into too much detail, but he is supposed to have a completely different template than in the first movies. Not so surprisingly, since "Rick And Morty" producer Jeff Loveness was hired to write the screenplay. An exact release date for "Ant-Man 3" has not yet been announced, but the film will most likely be part of phase 5 of the MCU.

More superhero news are also announced for DC's "Black Adam". In the past, many fans have often asked themselves in which universe the movie belongs to, as the whole thing has become a bit confusing since "Joker" and "The Batman". Producer Hiram Garcia gave a surprising answer to the magazine Collider. He didn't announce an exact universe, but he did reveal that they wanted to expand the world with Black Adam and the Justice Society Of America, called JSA. Garcia was much more specific about Black Adam's arch-enemy Shazam, which is said to exist in the same world, since both logically draw their powers from one source. "Black Adam" is supposed to be released on December 22, 2021.

After the production was paused in March, the production of "The Falcon And The Winter Soldier" is back on track. Allegedly, it will start next week in Georgia, so that the filming can continue in October in the beautiful Czech capital Prague. It is hoped that the Disney+ series with Anthony Mackie as Falcon and Sebastian Stan as Winter Soldier will be released this year as announced.

Last but not least there are some news about "Doctor Strange: The Multiverse Of Madness". After numerous pandemic-related postponements, there are now reports that "Doctor Strange 2" will already start shooting in November. One reason for this could be that the lockdown has played into the hands of new director Sam Raimi and author Michael Waldron, as both were hired relatively recently after director Scott Derrickson ended his collaboration with Marvel some time ago. The expected release date of "Doctor Strange: The Multiverse Of Madness" is March 25, 2022.
