The Suicide Squad – Theaters and HBO MAX
Flirting between the sequel and the reboot, the new version of Suicide Squad comes with a script and staging by one of today’s most beloved “pop” directors: James Gunn. Without great details on the plot, we only have the confirmed cast and some scenes released in DC Fandome.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League – HBO MAX
After years of fans harassing Warner, the studio finally gave in to the pressure and decided to let director Zack Snyder re-record the Justice League movie. But the idea came to the director’s mind so much that he decided to start the story as a mini-series of four episodes lasting about an hour each. Much like Globo does when he adapts his films for television. At first, the miniseries won’t have an influence on the DC Universe, but that’s that story, right? If he succeeds, nothing prevents the studio from throwing the film out of the cinema and starting to see it as valid.
Premiere date: September 5, 2021.
GI Joe Origins: Snake Eyes – Cinemas
Another martial arts hero will hit the big screen in 2021. That’s because Paramount intends to reboot the GI Joe franchise in theaters paying more attention to the characters than the last two attempts.

Release date: October 28, 2021.
The Eternals – Cinema
With one of the most expensive and diverse actors in Marvel history in theaters, The Eternals is another film that should have arrived in 2020, but ended up being pushed back until 2021 because of Covid-19. The plot will tell the story of a group of alien superheroes who were sent to Earth a long time ago. Separated, they grew and evolved with the different cultures of humanity. It promises to be unlike anything Marvel has done so far.
Release date: October 28, 2021.
Spider-Man 3 – Cinemas
Last week’s best meme will close Marvel’s 2021 in theaters. With many cast from old franchises confirmed over the past week, the international press is saying the film will take a journey through the Marvel multiverse. Marvel Studios CEO Kevin Feige has confirmed the presence of Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and has said he will be an important part of the plot. Public expectation is the appearance of old Spider-Men, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. However, while we don’t have any studio announcements on this, we can only confirm that Tom Holland’s Spider will be in the movie.
