  • RRR, K.G.F: Chapter 2 the most anticipated Indian films in 2022
  • Release calendar on the move due to COVID-19's Omicron variant

What are the biggest and most anticipated movies in 2022? From Hollywood, we have at least nine Marvel and DC superhero movies. A new Thor, Aquaman, Doctor Strange, Black Panther and Spider-Verse film with Chris Hemsworth, Jason Momoa, and Benedict Cumberbatch among others. A first standalone title for Ezra Miller's The Flash. The start of a potential new Batman, Black Adam, and Morbius franchise with Robert Pattinson, Dwayne Johnson, and Jared Leto, respectively. New entries in the Avatar, Minions, Top Gun, Jurassic World, Mission: Impossible, Fantastic Beasts, and Sonic the Hedgehog film series. Also, a new hopeful franchise in Uncharted, based on the PlayStation game. Plus, two Pixar movies and a Mario movie (LOL, what?).

From Bollywood and India at large, 2022 will bring new movies starring the likes of Deepika Padukone, Aamir Khan, Ranveer Singh, Katrina Kaif, Taapsee Pannu, Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, Ayushmann Khurrana, Prabhas, Shruti Haasan, Vijay Sethupathi, Saif Ali Khan, Rajkummar Rao, Kartik Aaryan, Mrunal Thakur, Sidharth Malhotra, Tiger Shroff, Ajay Devgn, and Akshay Kumar. In terms of titles, there's the hotly anticipated RRR, K.G.F: Chapter 2, Brahmāstra, Laal Singh Chaddha, and Gangubai Kathiawadi among many more. Of course, the bigger question thanks to the emergence of the Omicron variant is how many movies will actually release as planned.
