It’s Been 616 Days Since The Last Marvel Movie
Posted by Raphael Leynes March 09, 2021

It’s hard to believe that, at the time of this posting, it has been 616 days since we saw the adventures of our favorite Marvel superheroes on the big screen. Six Hundred and Sixteen days.  That’s 1 year, 8 months, and 7 days to put that in perspective. Of course, a lot has been going on lately with the COVID-19 pandemic putting the entire world on hold but it’s still so crazy that so much time has passed without a Marvel Movie gracing our eyeballs—a phenomenon that most people used looked forward to almost twice or thrice a year since 2008!



(Spoilers for Spider-Man: Far From Home below)


To Marvel fans, the number 616 carries strong significance to it as Earth-616 is considered as the primary continuity in which most Marvel Comics titles take place which is why we found it especially poignant to point out this specific day.

 

 

At the time of this writing, the last Marvel movie to come out was Spider-Man: Far From Home which was released a whole lifetime ago in the sweet, summer days of July 2, 2019–a full year and 251 days ago. In the movie, we got a glimpse of the world after the Decimation and the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame through the lens of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man and his European class trip with friends Mary Jane and Ned. 

 

 

The movie’s last story beat, Spider-Man being framed for murder by  Mysterio as well as Nick Fury setting up something big in what seems to be a remote space station, is also the last Marvel story beat that we’ve ingested in Marvel’s big-screen shared universe. 

 

However, we haven’t had a complete shortage of Marvel Cinematic Universe content thanks to Disney+’s Wandavision releasing early this year filling the void. The game-changing streaming series, gave us a bewitching look into the lives of the titular Wanda and Vision as they deal with the events of The Blip. As such Wandavision, is also the most updated look into our beloved MCU, further exploring the status quo of the world post-Avengers: Endgame. 

 

 

The next movie that’s slated to come out is Black Widow which was delayed from a 2020 release because of the aforementioned pandemic. The movie features Scarlett Johansson in her first solo outing as the titular femme fatale, master assassin as she confronts her past with the assassin group The Red Room with her apparent pseudo-family composed of sister-figure Yelena Belova/Black Widow II (Florence Pugh), father-figure Alexei Shostakov/Red Guardian (David Harbour), and mother-figure Melina Vostokoff/Black Widow, Rachel Weisz.

 


Black Widow is scheduled to release in cinemas May 7, 2021 effectively ending a Marvel movie drought that by then would be 675 days long.

PS: Interestingly enough, Earth-675 is also where a vicious assassin version of Kitty Pryde aka Shadowcat hails from, which admittedly is neither here nor there.
