From the looks of it, 2021 seems to be the most promising year for movies, TV shows, and Video Games. Let’s look at some of the best movies coming to us this year. There’s a wide array of sequels, remakes to amazing new concepts that we have to look out for. We also are going to be treated to some amazing Marvel movies as well; 2020 was the first year that we didn’t see a Marvel movie come out in a long time, the salt on the wound was the fact that some amazing titles were ready to be released. Not just Marvel movies, a ton of other anticipated movies were pushed back to 2021. Here we’ll look at 5 of the best and most anticipated movies.
A new Marvel flick that is very much interesting. Here we see Jared Leto trying his hand at Marvel after portraying the Joker in DC. His Joker got mixed reviews, but from the teasers and first looks, Morbius is looking real good.
The movie is distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing, making it the third Marvel character title from their franchise. The movie follows the character Morbius from the superhero comics. It’s being directed by Daniel Espinosa and written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless. This, like many others, was scheduled to be released in 2020 but got pushed forward due to the pandemic.
Now let’s look at this fearsome character and his backstory. He is known as Morbius, the living vampire with his real identity being Dr. Micheal Morbius. The character was created by Roy Thomas and designed by Gil Kane. His first appearance was as an antagonist for Spiderman in the comics.
Even though he was written as an antagonist to Spiderman he went on to be a very successful character and an anti-hero. The character to this day is very iconic for his very gritty and horror touch to the comics.
Dr. Micheal is a very well renowned biochemist, and he has earned multiple awards for his work throughout his career. But he was always held back because of a rare blood disease that he had early on from his childhood. To cure this, they try a lot of things. One such experiment goes very wrong.
This gone wrong experiment bestows upon him vampire-like powers and a thirst for human blood. Here starts the life of the anti-hero Morbius. The film was released on 19 March 2021.

2. No Time To Die
The twenty-fifth installment to the James Bond franchise is coming! yes, you read that right; it’s the twenty-fifth movie under the bond title. This series has been one of the most iconic action series ever to grace TV screens, and it gives superhero films a run for their money.
The hype for this has been over the roof, which is to be expected because everyone loves a Bond film. James Bond movies are the pinnacle when it comes to action scenes, high budget stunts, great fights, amazing dialogues, and a fascinating story in general.
This Bond movie has a level of extra sentimentality to it because this will be Daniel Craig’s last run as the famous fictional character James Bond. It’s his fifth take on the character, and he has outdone himself with the role, keeping him on par with all the other legendary actors that have played it too. Fans are very sad to see him leave.
The film is being directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, with many of the previous characters coming in to reprise their roles. A lot of new actors are also coming in, from the likes of Rami Malik to David Dencik.
This film is most likely the most delayed movie on this list, and it was actually set to be released back in 2019! So many factors played a role in delaying the movie from a departure of main members to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The story picks up after James Bond has left the service for good this time. It’s supposedly five years after the capture of notorious Ernst Stavro Blofeld. But like in true Bond fashion, he can never get a break from saving the world.
Bond is approached again to help find a missing scientist, who is then shown to be abducted. The villain in question is also scheming to take millions of lives. Bond has to put an end to all of that for one last time. The movie is set to release on April 2nd, 2021.
3. Fast And Furious 9
Yes, the family is back yet again for another crazy adventure. The franchise has been getting some hate for deviating so far away from the original story that was racing cars. But the studio doesn’t seem to care.
With this one, they seem to be going ten times ahead in terms of intensity and absurdity. One of the actors also mentioned that there would be a scene where they would eventually reach space. Now that was a level of intensity we weren’t even expecting.
Yes, some of the critics may be right. They have deviated a whole lot from classical street racing to tanks, submarines, and global terrorism. But we can’t deny the fact that the movies are really fun to watch. Every single one is action-packed to the brim with amazing stunts, cars, explosions, and many more.
Also, with such an amazing cast, it’s so fun to watch each and every one of them interact with each other. This time around, we see a new character pop up, Jakob, who is actually Dom’s brother! The brothers seem to have a very bad relationship with each other, so bad that they literally want to kill the other one.
We also see a fan-favorite character coming back in the trailer, Han! The trailer had some amazing stunt scenes; the craziness level of this movie is through the roof. Whatever the critics may say, this movie is without a doubt one of the best movies coming in 2021. Fast and Furious 9 releases on May 28th, 2021.
4. Black Widow
This is, without a hint of a doubt, the most awaited Marvel movie release of 2021. Ever since Avengers came out, fans have been longing for a solo Black Widow movie, and finally, after so many years, Marvel has delivered.
Natasha Romanoff, a.k.a Black Widow, is such an amazing character; she has a very deep origin story that is worth exploring. People are confused about why they took so long to give her a solo movie. But as long as the character gets the best story and movie, it deserves everyone is fine with a long wait.
This takes place after Captain America Civil War when Natasha finds herself having to deal with a lot of problems left over from her past as a spy. She has to deal with everything with a few new faces and without the help from the Avengers. Black Widow comes out on May 7, 2021.
If Black Widow is the most anticipated Marvel movie of 2021, then Dune is the most anticipated movie of 2021! Ever since we heard this masterpiece of a story was getting a new movie with an amazing cast, we couldn’t control our excitement. The teasers and trailers are just jaw-dropping. The visuals, the costumes, the world, everything is so beautifully done. Dennis Villeneuve takes the helm on this one as the director.
It is actually a two-part adaptation from the novel of the same name by Frank Herbert. For anyone who hasn’t read the novel, please do; it’s amazing. This entry will cover roughly the first half of the book.
We have an amazing cast comprising of Timothee Chalamet, Zendaya, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Chang Chen, Rebecca Ferguson, and many more. The story is set in the far future where everyone is fighting over a desert planet called Arrakis, which is also called Dune. This planet contains a very rare and powerful substance called “spice”.
This spice has many abilities ranging from increasing human life to making super-fast space travel possible. From the looks of it, Dune has a high chance of being the best movie of 2021. Dune releases on October 1, 2021.
