Marvel releases bone-chilling trailer to welcome fans back to the movies

Walt Disney Co’s Marvel Studios on Monday encouraged superhero fans to return to movie theaters, a show of support for pandemic-battered cinemas trying to stage a comeback amid competition from streaming services.

“See you at the movies,” said a three-minute-long trailer designed to stir excitement for 10 upcoming Marvel films including Black Widow, Eternals and a Black Panther sequel.

The video also showed footage from inside a theater of fans reacting to the decisive battle scene in Avengers: Endgame in April 2019.

The future of movie theaters is uncertain after extended closures during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Independent operators and large chains including AMC Entertainment, Cineworld Plc and Cinemark Holdings Inc hope that blockbusters from Marvel and others will help lure audiences back.

At the same time, Disney and other media companies are investing billions to compete with Netflix Inc and provide consumers with plenty of options to stream at home.

Disney is offering Black Widow for a $30 charge through the Disney+ streaming services on the same day it debuts in theaters in July.

No similar plans have been announced for any of the nine other upcoming films that Marvel previewed on Monday. The movies are scheduled for release over the next two years.

The trailer ends with release dates for all of its upcoming 10 films:

  • Black Widow: July 9, 2021
  • Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings: Sept. 3, 2021
  • The Eternals: Nov. 5, 2021
  • Spider-Man: No Way Home: Dec. 17, 2021
  • Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness: March 25, 2022
  • Thor: Love and Thunder: May 6, 2022
  • Black Panther: Wakanda Forever: July 8, 2022
  • The Marvels: Nov. 11, 2022
  • Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania: Feb. 17, 2023
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3: May 5, 2023
