2. Matrix 4 (May 21, 2021)
Another most anticipated movie sequel in 2021 is Matrix 4 starred by Keanu Reeves.
The original Matrix trilogy came to an end by 2003 with Matrix Revolutions. But with the ending of the trilogy, fans suspected the possibility of a 4th installment to the movie franchise. But it took almost 16 years to announce the Matrix 4. Not only that, but fans also have more to celebrate. The film’s casting revealed that many of the original cast is back in action for the 4th installment as well. Also, the co-creator of the original trilogy Lana Wachowski will write and direct the movie.
3. Jurassic World: Dominion (June 11, 2021)
This is the upcoming sequel to Jurassic World. Also the 3rd installment of the new franchise. This movie has one major difference that makes this an exception from the others. That reason is this movie is not set on an island like the previous ones. All five films in the Jurassic Park franchise, set on two separate islands. Those are Isla Nublar and Isla Sorna.
Once it comes out we have to see how its gonna perform compared to the original Jurassic Park and the reboot of Jurassic World.
4. Venom 2 (June 25, 2021)
Sony’s take on Venom can be recognized as a success. Many fans loved the Anti-hero version of Venom that came 2 years ago and was a box office success too.
In the post-credits scene of the Venom, they dropped a huge hint on Absolute Carnage. Venom and related characters are still under Sony Entertainment. So they have the right of making movies regarding those characters. But is said that the Venom universe will connect to MCU. Maybe the upcoming Venom 2 will be the bridge between Sony’s Venom Universe and Marvel Cinematic Universe.
5. Space Jam : A New Legacy (July 16, 2021)
Space Jam A New Legacy is the sequel to long-awaited followup film to the beloved 1996 family movie.
The release of the movie is still set to Summer 2021. This sequel, also known simply as Space Jam 2, will spotlight NBA star LeBron James share the court with Bugs Bunny and the rest of the Looney Tunes.
Although all this is true, it is still hard to believe that this is actually happening. The production of this movie started somewhere around 2014 and even in 2020 we still have another year to wait to see how this sequel going to be like.
6. Spider Man 3 (November 5, 2021)
Iconic character in Sony’s Marvel Universe then transferred to Marvel Cinematic Universe is nonother than the Spider-Man. He made his debut on Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War. Then he got solo movies with Spider-Man Homecoming and Spider-Man Far From Home.
To complete his trilogy he is getting another movie but yet is untitled. After billion-dollar success with Spider-Man Far From Home development got a mess of Spider-Man 3 as Sony revoked the rights given to Disney to use Spider-Man in MCU. At first, it seemed as star Tom Holland’s MCU journey was over as Disney went greedy without renewing the old deal with Sony. But later, two companies fixed the issue. With proper discussions and Disney got rights again to use beloved Spidey in MCU.
Still year and a half to see what the movie is going to look like, yet it is an important sequel for Spidey as well as Tom Holland to finish his trilogy.
7. Fantastic Beasts 3 (November 12, 2021)
Initially, Warner Bros wanted to release Fantastic Beasts 3 to hit the theaters on November 20, 2020. They wanted to follow a previous couple of movies’ strategy of the wait between 2 years for the sequel. With actors’ other contracts and many more reasons, this date was not never a fixed one. Considering those issues WB decided to push back the creation. So fans had to destroy their hopes as 2020 wasn’t the year for the sequel.
Fantastic Beasts franchise resumed the Wizarding World of Harry Potter with the second installment of The Crimes of Grindelwald in 2018. Which, didn’t go in the ways of fans’ expectations neither Warner Bros. They did not anticipate poor reviews and mess to the box-office collection. Especially this happened when the franchise was planned to be a 5 movie arc.
So both fans and studios are watching how the third installment going to perform. We hope it’s going to be a success. To see that we have to wait till 2021 Sequel. That’s why this sequel is important to everyone.
