In 2020, Marvel studios, DC universe and Sony pictures are releasing several superhero movies. This could make the most significant year in genre’s history. In recent years the number of movies has increased rapidly and this rapid increase in releasing these movies has not only increased their popularity, but they are also doing great when it comes to box office collection (let’s just ignore Birds of Prey, shall we?)
All fans who are eagerly waiting to watch new superhero movies this year must feel lucky because the following are some great movies releasing this year.
Venom 2 is an upcoming superhero film inspired by Marvel’s most well known Spider-Man villain and is directed by Andy Serkis. It is scheduled for release on October 2, 2020. A direct sequel to the surprisingly successful 2018 film, there is a lot of hype for the sequel. And the producers are trying to make sure that their next movie will meet the expectations of the audience.
WONDER WOMAN 84

The Black Widow is in theaters on May 1, 2020. The movie revolves around Natasha Romanova/Black Widow, who is a highly trained former K.G.B. assassin and member of the Avengers.
