6. Sonic 2 – 6 April 2022
After the success of the 2020 film, Sonic is back with a second part. And whoever talks about return is obviously talking about the return of the bad guys. This second film is indeed a logical sequel to the first. After the final fight that saw him send Dr. Robotnik to Mushroom Island, Sonic becomes an integral part of Green Hills.
He now wants to prove to everyone that he is a true hero. His big challenge will be the return of Dr. Robotnik, accompanied by Knuckles.

The scene takes place in Paris, in 1950. Superintendent Maigret is in charge of investigating the death of a young woman whose body was found in Place Vintimile. But nothing will be easy for the commissioner since no one seems to know the victim, neither Adam nor Eve. The commissioner’s first clue will come from an offender. This is how, little by little, Maigret will plunge into the sad destiny of the young dead woman.
8. Fantastic Beasts 3: Dumbledore’s Secrets – April 24, 2022
The third film in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them saga, Dumbledore’s Secrets has suffered the throes of Covid-19 and many other changes. In particular, the replacement of Johnny Depp by Mads Mikkelsen in the role of Gellert Grindelwald. But finally, this eleventh film inspired by the adventures of Harry Potter will be released and it’s the best thing.
Gellert Grindelwald continues his increasingly meteoric rise to power and the number of his allies continues to grow. Dumbledore, to whom none of the events escapes, sends his closest collaborators on a mission, with Norbert Scamander at their head. This should lead them to challenge Grindelwald and his allies. However, the war is at the door and Dumbledore wonders if he should not also enter the scene.
9. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness – 4 May2022
Worn by Benedict Cumberbatch, Doctor Strange returns to the cinema after Spider-Man: No Way Home. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness thus becomes the 28th MCU film and the 5th in Phase IV. After their fight against Thanos to try to save the world, Captain America and Iron Man are gone.
The biggest role now falls to the great magician, Doctor Strange. Unfortunately, he can no longer bear the consequences of his manipulation of time and space alone. This has created a kind of madness called the Multiverse. To prevent chaos, the ex-surgeon will ask for the help of Wong and a teenager capable of traveling in the multiverse.
10. Top Gun Maverick – May 25, 2022
Scheduled to release in July 2021, Top Gun Maverick has been postponed to May 2022. Let’s hope the release of this American drama film doesn’t change again. It’s actually a logical sequel to Top Gun, 1986.
For 30 years, Maverick has been a test pilot in the United States Navy. The time spent allowed him to prove himself as one of the best fighter pilots in the world. But when the time comes to rise in his position, Maverick refuses, since it would prevent him from continuing to fly. To give up or not, this question will cross his mind when he is called upon to lead young graduates on a dangerous special mission.
11. Jurassic World: The World After – June 8, 2022
Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, and Laura Dern are back with the third part of the saga. American science fiction film, The World After follows the events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
In this new opus, the giant animals that had escaped from Lockwood Manor will be able to spread over the Earth, with the intention of dominating it. We weren’t supposed to see only the ancient dinosaurs. Several others, larger and terrifying, will appear in the film.
12. Buzz Lightyear – June 22, 2022
The name of the film is evocative. You probably remember Toy Story. You are right, this film is a spin-off of the saga produced by Pixar. With this new film, we follow Buzz Lightyear during his youth. It’s not for nothing that he has a toy in his honor. Buzz Lightyear is actually a hero who has accomplished great feats during his travels. This new film should logically lead us to infinity and beyond.
13. Thor: Love and Thunder – 6 July 2022
The God of Thunder is back with a 4th movie in his name. He becomes the first Marvel hero to have reached such a figure. Worn by Chris Hemsworth, Thor will be flanked by Valkyrie and the Guardians of the Galaxy.
For the time being, we do not know the official plot of the film. However, the story should be based on The Mighty Thor. The arc of the comics where Jane Foster gets sick and gets pretty much the same powers as Thor.
14. Black Adam – July 22, 2022
We do not yet know when Shazam will return to dark rooms, but his enemy will be present this year. Black Adam is a fantasy and action movie based on the comics. Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and starring Dwayne Johnson, Aldis Hodge, and Noah Centineo, it is dedicated to the enemy of Shazam.
Black Adam is Shazam’s number one enemy. Endowed with the power of the gods of Ancient Egypt, he is an extremely dangerous villain who does not hesitate to break everything in his path. This protagonist risks changing a lot of things in the world of superheroes.
15. Mission: Impossible September 7 – 28, 2022
We’ve been waiting for Mission: Impossible 7 and Tom Cruise’s impressive stunts for almost two years. After delays due to COVID-19, the film will finally be released (hopefully). Despite this, the directors are still keeping the plot of the film a secret, and still no trailer. However, we know that the film will be a series of breathtaking adventures and stunts.
16. Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse 1 – 12 October 2022
No respite for Spider-Man! A few months after No Way Home, which continues to be a hit, Spider-Man will be back on giant screens, without Tom Holland, of course. Across The Spider-Verse is an animated film that will also explore the multiverse introduced in the MCU in 2021.
Spider-Man’s daily life is turned upside down when he has to come out of retirement to face a formidable enemy, the most powerful he has faced in his life. To defeat him, he sets out on a journey through time to find allies. Including Gwen Stacy and other superheroes.
17. The Flash – 2 November 2022
Another movie that took a long time to hit theaters. Ultimately led by Andy Muschietti, The Flash is an American science fiction action film. On the poster, we find Ezra Miller, Sasha Calle, and Michael Keaton. This film makes us follow the adventures of Barry Allen. Initially, he was just a young policeman who leads his life as he sees fit.
But since he was struck by lightning, new missions are entrusted to him. In the trailer for the film, he is seen in the company of other superheroes such as Supergirl and Batman. He also travels across the multiverse in an attempt to prevent his mother’s assassination. However, the nature of his opponent is still unknown.
18. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – 9 November 2022
The king is dead. Long live the king! Wakanda’s return to theaters on November 9 should be filled with tributes and emotion for the Wakanda hero. The death of Chadwick Boseman caused the directors to revise their plots. Although nothing is official yet, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever should revolve around the succession to the throne. In this case, Princess Shuri should claim it.
19. Avatar 2 – December 14, 2022
13 years after the release of the first Avatar, James Cameron returns with the second part, centered on the family. The events of this second installment take place a decade after the story of the first film. Avatar 2 is among the most awaited films to watch in 2022.
Our heroes Jake and Neytiri are now parents. But they must flee to preserve their family. First, they must evade a criminal organization back in Pandora. Second, they have to face the Metkayina, a clan with different customs.
20. Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom – 21 December 2022
After the success of the first film, Jason Momoa is back with Aquaman 2, or rather Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom. It’s a chance to launch new fearsome enemies, but they can always see a king, played by the big and muscular Jason Momoa.
Filming has since ended, but nothing has yet leaked as an official plot. However, it’s a great film that fans should appreciate, according to the interpreter of Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones.
