2021 has proven to be an enormous year for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This year saw the release of Black Widow after a year-long delay, the first Asian-led Marvel film with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and the movies' first onscreen gay couple in Eternals. Several new MCU shows like WandaVision and Hawkeye also debuted to expand the universe even further. And, of course, the hype train shows no signs of stopping with even more movies in 2022.

This year is already going to end off with a bang. With WandaVision and Loki shattering timelines, Spider-Man: No Way Home will break down the barrier between alternate realities with the arrival of villains from the Sony Spidey films. As Phase Four of the MCU keeps on going, there's no telling how much crazier things could get from here. The potential of crossovers and new arrivals is practically limitless, and we'll just have to see what 2022 brings to the table with its releases.

Here are all the MCU movies coming out in 2022.

Morbius will be released in theaters on Jan. 28.

While Strange continues to research the Eye of Agamotto (aka the Time Stone), an unexpected threat meddles in his affairs and causes him to unleash a terrible evil.

The film will release on May 6.
