Marvel has made twenty-three movies in this last decade but has produced just as much content in these past two years.

There are many more movies and other shows in the works that have been announced. For example, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which was released on November 11th. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 are scheduled to be released in early 2023.

We got the chance to interview a big Marvel fan, Junior Rithika Sivapokaran, here are her responses:

Q: How long have you been a Marvel fan?

A: I’ve been a Marvel fan since I was very young.

Q: What got you to like Marvel?

A: My dad introduced me to the movies when I was little and my love for it grew as I got older.

Q: What do you think about Marvel producing more content this year?

A: I’m so excited but I’m also worried. Don’t get me wrong, I love all the new ideas and new movies but part of me feels like the movies are losing their special touches. It may be because there are so many new characters, and nothing compared to the original movies.

Q: What movie are you most excited for, why?

A: I’m most excited for the new Black Panther movie because I really loved the first movie. I loved all the music, the actors, and the story overall. I felt like it was so different from all the other movies because it provided exposure to diverse cultures. I’m especially excited for the new movie because I’ve heard that Shuri will be given a bigger role. I personally feel like she’s so iconic, and I can’t wait to see more female representation, specifically those who are involved in STEM.

After the passing of Chadwick Boseman, fans have been wondering how the Black Panther movies will continue without him. Since the announcement of Wakanda Forever, we’ve found out that the Black Panther legacy will be passed down to the T’Challa’s sister, Shuri (Letitia Wright). We know that in this movie we will see the Wakandans fighting to protect their nation from world powers who are intervening in the wake of King T’Challa’s death.

The next release you should be excited for is Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which is set to come out February 17th,2023. Scott Lang, Hope Van Dyne, Hank Pym, and Janet Van Dyne, explore the Quantum Realm.

They will embark on an exciting adventure, going beyond the limits of what they thought possible. Even coming face to face with one of Marvel comics most notorious villains Kang the Conqueror, he is the ruler of the Quantum Realm and appears to have some sort of history with Janet Van Dyne according to the recently released trailers. Paul Rudd has done an amazing job at capturing the charismatic lead, Scott Lang, throughout his movies, and many are looking forward to seeing him again since Avengers Endgame that released in 2019.

The final release that we know a few details about is Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3, which will be released on May 5th, 2023. Even though there is little to know about this movie so far, we know that the guardians will have to deal with the loss of Gamora (Zoe Saldaña) from Avengers: Endgame.

The last time we saw the guardians was in a brief scene in Thor; Love and Thunder. We can also look forward to more of the classic Guardians of the Galaxy comedy and the awesome music.

I am most looking forward to the release of Guardians of the Galaxy. When I first started watching the Marvel movies, the Guardians movies quickly became some of my favorites. I really enjoyed the humor and energy of the cast. They have some of the most iconic lines and characters in the MCU. Even though Gamora will not be with them anymore, I’m curious as to how the loss of her will affect the rest of the team. (Tatiana)

Personally, I love everything Marvel and have seen all marvel content since the beginning. I really enjoyed watching the movies and shows that have been released in the past few years even though some projects seem a little rushed, that’s the cost of producing so much content in a shorter time. I am most excited to see one of the biggest Marvel comics villains of all time Kang the Conqueror. I am really looking forward to meeting the new big bad of the MCU, he could open a lot of doors for new ideas that were not possible before. In short, the future of Marvel is looking very bright.
