Marvel Dates New Films Through 2019

With Comic-Con just a few days away, eyes are naturally turning towards the big genre announcements likely to emerge from the event. Marvel has decided to get a jump on the competition, unveiling release dates for a slew of movies from its cinematic universe, albeit leaving plenty of mystery to be explained in San Diego.

While we’ve known for a few months that studio boss Kevin Feige and his team have plans stretching as far as 2028, so far all the company has announced are its films up to early 2016, with Captain America’s third outing set for May 6 of that year - putting it up against Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

Now, however, the company has put out a statement staking out July 28 and November 3, 2017; July 6 and November 2, 2018; and May 3, 2019. There’s just one tiny wrinkle: no film titles are listed, but with the studio due to make its typically big presentation to the Comic-Con faithful on July 26, we can hope that most, if not all, the gaps will be filled in then. After all, this is a company that loves its seekrits…

Feel free to guess away until then about which films will fill each slot, but we’d hazard that a third Avengers could be that July 2018 date (assuming it keeps to one every three years) and** Thor 3** is likely to be another. With Doctor Strange now in development with Scott Derrickson, that’s surely a definite. So what else? Another Guardians? Black Panther at last? Ms. Marvel? The list of possibilities is endless.
