This morning at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood, Marvel Studios President/producer Kevin Feige announced the slate of films planned for Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which sent shockwaves of joy through the Internet. Over the next five years, movie-goers will be able to see:
Captain America: Civil War | May 6, 2016
The team behind Captain America: The Winter Soldier, directors Anthony and Joe Russo and screenwriters Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, return as Captain America and Iron Man face off.
Doctor Strange | November 4, 2016
The Sorceror Supreme enters the MCU under the direction of Scott Derrickson from a script by Jon Spaihts. Benedict Cumberbatch has been reported to play Stephen Strange but Feige made no mention of him, so obviously negotiations are still on-going.
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 | May 5, 2017
James Gunn is back in charge of the next adventure of the space-faring group.
Thor: Ragnarok | July 28, 2017
The third solo film of the God of Thunder is set after what transpires in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Black Panther | November 3, 2017
Chadwick Boseman stars as T'Challa, a royal member of the mythical African nation of Wakanda. But we'll this won't be the first appearance of the character, who will be seen in Civil War.
Avengers: Infinity Wars Part I & II | May 2018 and May 2019
Looks like those claiming Avengers 3 wouldn't be broken into two parts was essentially correct.
Captain Marvel | July 6, 2018
Rather than Black Widow, Captain Marvel will be the first female hero to get a solo film. Carol Danvers, who used to be Ms. Marvel before becoming Captain Marvel in the comics, is a cosmic hero whose powers came from the Kree.
Inhumans | November 2, 2018
Am very curious how the Inhumans will fit in the MCU.
As far as other heroes, the Hulk will appear in the Avengers movies, but no solo film is planned. Haven't heard anything about Hawkeye. Did we leave anything out?
Let us know what you think of the line-up in the comments below.
