Loose lips sink ships. That’s what they said during World War II reminding dock workers not to talk about the comings and goings of ships involved in the war effort. Yesterday in a Q&A session on Facebook, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn may… Read More »Is Marvel skipping San Diego Comic Con for D23?
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:

So this is happening! Captain America: The Winter Soldier is due April 4, 2014—we’re talking Falcon, Bucky, and Robert Redford, people. That’s some exciting stuff!
Principal photography has started and the new Captain America movie is up and running. The first film got mixed reviews (I really liked it), so I am curious to see how the sequel fares now that The Avengers has taken everything into another stratosphere.
I think Cap’ will rise to the occasion.

Marvel has released a new clip that shows a few, very brief, and I mean very, moments of its next big film – The Avengers. The clip also contains the last few seconds of Captain America: The First Avenger, which could be considered a spoiler, so I’m putting it below the jump.
