Marvel’s Present

For 2021, Marvel took a streaming approach to the releases. With blockbusters like Black Widow premiering on the Disney+ platform, the distribution for major cinematic events is decidedly different than in previous years. Not that it seems to have slowed down success.

In September, Marvel release Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, a lesser-known title that has roots in the Avengers franchise. The film was an immediate success, landing a USD$95.6 million record-breaking Labor Day holiday box office showing and signifying a return to normality for the blockbuster business. Here’s what was released so far in 2021.

Black Widow

The backstory behind the Avengers enforcer Natasha Romanoff kicked off Marvel’s 2021 releases with a bang. The film told the story of how the former KGB spy was forced to confront her dark past, all while evading capture by Taskmaster. While far from marvel’s best release, the film did create major headlines, namely for star Scarlett Johansson’s lawsuit against the movie maker.

The film, whihc was released in September 2021, shows martial-arts master Shang-Chi confronting the past when he’s drawn into the web of the mysterious Ten Rings organisation. An instant success, this Marvel movie exploded at the box-office, being the stand-out film of 2021.
