During the 2000s, Marvel ceded the rights to some of its characters to other studios, for example the entire Spider-Man universe, to which it ceded the rights.

Jason Momoa returns, Aquaman returns, this sequel to King of the Sea is the last glimpse of the cinematographic universe created by director Zack Snyder who refuses to die at the hands of his fans, in this adventure, Aquaman will have to make an alliance with a character he does not trust at all to save the Kingdom of Atlantis.

The one that may not happen, November 3
Blade
(Marvel)

Mahershala Ali (Green book, Moonlight) will play Marvel Studios vampire hunter Blade. However, last year it was known that the director Bassam Tariq was leaving the project and although there is no official cancellation of the project or a new date, it is highly unlikely that we will see this character’s film this year.

Without a doubt, 2023 promises to be one of the best years for fans of superhero movies, who will have a full agenda to see our favorites on the big screen, and as if this were not enough, many series based on the cinematographic universes of the most popular comic book publishers of all time.
