Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania

With Phase 4 in the rearview mirror, Marvel Studios kickstarts Phase 5 with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, where they'll formally introduce The Multiverse Saga's primary antagonist Kang the Conqueror, who will seemingly track down Scott Lang for a mission that may have potentially devastating consequences. 

Cast: Paul Rudd (Scott Lang/Ant-Man), Evangeline Lilly (Hope van Dyne/Wasp), Michael Douglas (Hank Pym), Michelle Pfeiffer (Janet van Dyne), Kathryn Newton (Cassie Lang), Jonathan Majors (Kang the Conqueror), David Dastmalchian (Kurt), Randall Park (Jimmy Woo), Bill Murray, William Jackson Harper, and Katy O'Brian

Release Date: February 17

Quasi

Five years after Super Troopers 2, Broken Lizard is back with the satirical comedy Quasi, which is loosely based on Victor Hugo's 1831 novel The Hunchback of Notre-Dame. We don't know much else right now, but it should contain plenty of their trademark humor.

Cast: Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Jay Chandrasekhar, Paul Soter, Erik Stolhanske, and Adrianne Palicki

Release Date: April 20 (Hulu)

Next Goal Wins

After a second round with the God of Thunder, director Taika Waititi is tackling an entirely different genre with the sports comedy-drama Next Goal Wins, which stars Michael Fassbender (X-Men: Days of Future Past) as Thomas Rongen, a Dutch-American coach who attempted to lead the American Samoa national football team to qualification for the 2014 World Cup. 

Cast: Michael Fassbender, Oscar Kightley, David Fane, Beulah Koale, Lehi Falepapalangi, Semu Filipo, Uli Latukefu, Rachel House, Kaimana, Will Arnett, and Elisabeth Moss

Release Date: April 21

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special was a nice treat, but it's back to business for our favorite A-holes next May, with the arrival of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

While tracking down Gamora will be a priority for Peter, the Guardians will also have their hands full with Adam Warlock on their tails and don't expect him to take it easy on anyone. 

Cast: Chris Pratt (Peter Quill/Star-Lord), Zoe Saldaña (Gamora), Dave Bautista (Drax the Destroyer), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Vin Diesel (Groot), Bradley Cooper (Rocket), Will Poulter (Adam Warlock), Elizabeth Debicki (Ayesha), Sylvester Stallone (Stakar Ogord), Sean Gunn (Kraglin Obfonteri), Maria Bakalova (Cosmo the Spacedog), Michael Rosenbaum (Martinex), and Chukwudi Iwuji (High Evolutionary). 

Release Date: May 5

The Little Mermaid

Disney's first look at The Little Mermaid has been wowing audiences ever since its release, and having seen Halle Bailey's full performance at the D23 Expo earlier this year, we assure you this is one title fans will definitely not want to miss! 

Cast: Halle Bailey, Daveed Diggs, Jacob Tremblay, Awkwafina, Jonah Hauer-King, Art Malik, Noma Dumezweni, Javier Bardem, and Melissa McCarthy

Release Date: May 26

Elemental

Disney and Pixar have a long history of delivering magic and Pixar looks to be no different, as it tells the story of a "fiery young woman and a go-with-the-flow guy," who, "are about to discover something elemental: how much they actually have in common."

Cast: Leah Lewis, Mamoudou Athie

Release Date: June 16

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny

Indy is back for one last ride and it looks to be his biggest adventure yet as he tackles the Space Race. While plot details are under wraps, with Harrison Ford and director James Mangold leading the way, this should be one of next summer's most entertaining blockbusters.

Cast: Harrison Ford, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Antonio Banderas, John Rhys-Davies, Shaunette Renée Wilson, Thomas Kretschmann, Toby Jones, Boyd Holbrook, Olivier Richters, Ethann Isidore, and Mads Mikkelsen

Release Date: June 30

The Marvels

Marvel Studios released the first look trailer for The Marvels during the D23 Expo earlier this year, and while it doesn't look like it'll make its way online before the end of 2022, the sequel is expected to be a major step-up from its predecessor as Carol Danvers teams-up with Kamala Khan and Monica Rambeau to solve a cosmic problem. 

Cast: Brie Larson (Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel), Iman Vellani (Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel), Teyonah Parris (Monica Rambeau), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Saagar Shaikh (Aamir Khan), Zenobia Shroff (Muneeba Khan), Mohan Kapur (Yusuf Khan), Zawe Ashton, and Park Seo-joon.

Release Date: July 28

Haunted Mansion

It's about to get extremely spooky next August, as we're taken back to Disney's Haunted Mansion for an all-new adventure that'll follow a single mom and her son as they move into the New Orleans-based mansion, before learning that there's more to their new home than meets the eye and they're going to need an exorcist to set things right. 

Cast: Rosario Dawson, LaKeith Stanfield, Owen Wilson, Tiffany Haddish, Winona Ryder, Dan Levy, Jared Leto, Danny DeVito, and Jamie Lee Curtis

Release Date: August 11

A Haunting in Venice

Hercule Poirot is back next fall for A Haunting in Venice, the third entry in Kenneth Branagh's ongoing mystery series after Murder on the Orient Express and Death on the Nile. Both previous titles were received relatively well, but this one could be the most exciting yet as it adapts a lesser-known Agatha Christie novel Hallowe'en Party

Cast: Kenneth Branagh, Jamie Dornan, Tina Fey, Jude Hill, Kelly Reilly, Michelle Yeoh, Emma Laird, Kyle Allen, Camille Cottin, Ali Khan, and Riccardo Scamarcio

Release Date: September 15

True Love

Gareth Edwards (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) helms this sci-fi drama, and while plot details are nonexistent, there's a chance this could be one of the fall's more exciting releases. 

Cast: John David Washington, Gemma Chan, Allison Janney, Ken Watanabe, Ralph Ineson, Sturgill Simpson, and Marc Menchaca

Release Date: October 6

Wish

This could be one of Disney's more intriguing animated offerings, as it promises to tell the untold tale of how wishing began in their extended universe of films. Following a young girl named Asha, it will reveal how her wish changed her world forever. 

Cast: Ariana DeBose

Release Date: November 22
