Marvel hosted a special event at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, CA today, making a huge production out of the announcement of their upcoming slate of films. And after all was revealed, Marvel fans have a lot to celebrate as Marvel and Disney are moving forward on major projects (with major budgets).
Here’s the scoop on titles and release dates:
– Captain America: Civil War with Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr is coming on May 6, 2016. Black Panther will be in costume in the film, according to Marvel President Kevin Feige.
– Doctor Strange arrives on November 4, 2016 with Scott Derrickson directing. They’re still in the negotiations stage so Feige did not confirm Benedict Cumberbatch would be playing the title role.
– Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will be released on May 5, 2017.
– Thor: Ragnarok opens on July 28, 2017. Ragnarok means “the end of all things”…
– Black Panther solo movie opens on November 3, 2017 with Chadwick Boseman in the title role.
– Captain Marvel will be released on July 6, 2018. This Captain Marvel will be Carol Danvers, and Feige says now is the right time to be working on a Captain Marvel movie.
– Inhumans is scheduled to arrive on November 2, 2018.
– Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 will open on May 4, 2018 followed by Part 2 on May 3, 2019.
Feige didn’t confirm any solo projects for Hulk, Black Widow, or Hawkeye and instead wants those rumors to continue (along with the rumor of a new Howard the Duck film). Feige said, “The studio is firing on all cylinders right now. We have the best people working behind the camera and in front of the camera.” Feige also said that while they do talk about a The Runaways movie, it’s currently not in the studio’s plans.
