Marvel Studios had decided to go bold by setting dates for its upcoming movies through Spring 2019, which will take them into the start of Phase 4 of the Marvel Universe.
Already on the schedule for upcoming films are Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1, 2014, along with The Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1, 2015, and Ant-Man on July 17, 2015.
For 2016, Marvel plans to release Captain America 3. This leaves 1 more movie for 2016, 3 movies for 2017, 2 movies for 2018, and 1 for 2019 (though I’m sure a second will be scheduled for later that year).
So what other films could Marvel plan to release?
Well, The Avengers sequel is coming three years after the first one, which means The Avengers 3 could occupy one of the 2018 dates. Doctor Strange already has a director, so that might get the second 2016 date. Thor 3 is also in the pipeline, so that will probably get one of the 2017 dates, as will a most likely sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel is also said to be developing standalone films around Black Widow and Black Panther. That leaves one slot unaccounted for.
Hopefully we’ll know more once Marvel has its big reveals at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
Below is the full slate of Marvel releases scheduled through 2019:
