Given the massive acclaim of 2019 comic book movies, from DC’s “Joker” to Marvel’s “Avengers: Endgame,” in addition to even critically acclaimed TV shows, like HBO’s “Watchmen,” 2020 will assuredly be ripe with both superhero and supervillain movies of all kinds. The three mainstays, after Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox, now stands as Sony’s “Venom-verse,” Disney’s Marvel Studios, and Warner Bros’ DCEU. 

Here's what film title releases to expect going into 2020:

Warner Bros. “Birds of Prey” - Feb. 7

The first of many upcoming comic book movies is the DCEU’s second supervillain outing, “Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn.” Acting as a pseudo-sequel to “Suicide Squad,” the film follows Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) on a rampage after leaving her boyfriend, the Joker, behind. “Birds of Prey” will introduce a handful of new DCEU supervillains, including Ewan McGregor’s Black Mask, Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s Huntress, and Jurnee Smollett-Bell’s Black Canary.

Disney’s/20th Century Fox’s “The New Mutants” - April 3

The first foray into a horror-esque “X-Men” trilogy was inevitably handed off to Disney following the Fox buyout. The movie had been pushed back due to reshoots and other unspecified matters on a number of occasions until finally landing on Disney’s doorstep. “New Mutants” stars Anya Taylor-Joy from “Split,” “Game of Thrones” star Maisie Williams, and Antonio Banderas. A new trailer is set to debut on Monday.

Disney’s “Black Widow” - May 1

Kicking off the 2020 MCU movies is none other than “Black Widow,” the story of a Russian assassin turned Avenger, Natasha Romanova, who most recently sacrificed herself in the close of “Endgame.” Set following the events of 2016’s “Civil War,” the female-led MCU feature will showcase Natasha’s (Scarlett Johansson) backstory in full as she wrestles with demons from her past.

Warner Bros. “Wonder Woman 1984” - June 5

Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman returns, this time in a more retro 1980s style. Chris Pine likewise reenters the shoes of Steve Trevor, though where once Diana was the fish out of water in World War II Europe, Trevor now stands as the bumbling culture-shocked man, whose return from death may not be as wonderful as Wonder Woman believes. Pedro Pascal and Kristen Wiig play the villains of “Wonder Woman 1984,” Max Lord and Cheetah, respectively.

Sony’s “Morbius” - July 31

Very little is known thus far about Sony’s “Morbius,” yet with the acclaim of DC’s “Joker,” supervillain movies may well be the next wave of 2020. Jared Leto, following his fan-disliked Joker portrayal in “Suicide Squad,” now takes on the Living Vampire, a biochemist by the name of Dr. Michael Morbius whose supposed cure to a rare blood disease turns him into a monster of the night. Set within the “Venom-verse,” “Morbius” will tie directly into “Venom 2.”

Sony’s “Venom 2” - Oct. 2

Despite lackluster reviews, "Venom" still came out on top with over $800 million in the bag, including a sneak preview of the sequel villain at the end with an emprisoned Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady, AKA Carnage. It's unclear how Sony's "Morbius" and "Venom 2" will intertwine, though it's safe to say that supervillain movies will be the 2020 norm.

Disney’s “Eternals” - Nov. 6

The last of the upcoming comic book movies is Disney's "Eternals," a look into the ancient history of gods. Starring Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani, Kit Harington, and Salma Hayek, "Eternals" will essentially round out the 2020 MCU movies, inviting plenty more features and Disney Plus shows going into 2021.
