About a year ago, Marvel announced its movie schedule for the next five years, but it looks like it's time to update that schedule. A sequel to Marvel's smallest film (pun intended) to date, Ant-Man, is officially on the books. Called Ant-Man and The Wasp, this super dup starring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly will take over Black Panther's slot on July 6th, 2018.

Marvel seems to be sticking pretty hard to the "no more than three movies a year" rule moving Black Panther up to February 16th 2018, and Captain Marvel back to March 8th, 2019. Marvel's first female solo superhero, Captain Marvel has had her debut movie pushed back twice now, the first time occurring when Spider-Man came home to Marvel.

Marvel also announced three dates for movies in 2020 which is most likely the beginning of Phase 4. May 1st, July 10th, and November 6th will be the first Marvel movies of next decade. (Prediction: Spider-Man 2, Guardians of the Galaxy 3, Blade 4)

The Official Marvel Schedule (As of October 2015)

  • 5/6/2016 - Captain America: Civil War
  • 11/4/2016 - Doctor Strange
  • 5/5/2017 - Guardians of the Galaxy 2
  • 7/28/2017 - Spider-Man
  • 11/3/2017 - Thor: Ragnarok
  • 2/16/2018 - Black Panther
  • 5/4/2018 - Avengers: Infinity War Pt. 1
  • 7/6/2018 - Ant-Man and The Wasp
  • 3/8/2019 - Captain Marvel
  • 5/3/2019 - Avengers: Infinity War Pt. 2
  • 7/12/2019 - Inhumans
  • 5/1/2020 - Unknown
  • 7/10/2020 - Unknown
  • 11/6/2020 - Unknown

Add in another 4-5 movies a year from X-Men/DC and you'll get a sense of where all your money is going over the next five years. Hope you like Superheroes!

As Marvel enters Phase 3 of its cinematic universe, the superhero juggernaut will be introducing a lot of new characters to its roster. In a na interview with IGN, Marvel head Kevin Feige had something to say about how they're handling Doctor Strange,

For some reason people sometimes talked about how we're not doing an origin story, we're bored of origin stories. I think people are bored of origin stories they've seen before or origin stories that are overly familiar... Doctor Strange has one of the best, most classic, most unique origin stories of any hero we have, so why wouldn't we do that? That was sort of always the plan. How you tell that origin, perhaps there are ways to twist it or play with that, but for the most part, it's a gift when the comics have something with such clarity of story and of character. That doesn't always happen in the comics, and when it does, you use it.

Marvel's new take on the Spider-Man seems to highlight this point. Rumors are suggesting that Peter Parker will be a year into his web slinging when he's introduced in Captain America: Civil War next year. Audiences have already watched Uncle Ben's death twice since 2002, and frankly no one wnats to hear "with great power, comes great responsibility" ever again.

Maybe the origin story isn't dead. Maybe it's just time to stop showing Spider-Man and Batman's.

Chris Evans' contract as Marvel's First Avenger, Captain America is coming to a close after two more movies, which based on their release schedule is right around 2019. There has been some concern with his desire to continue going forward, but after this video you can put those fears to rest. Hopefully, we'll be seeing Steve leading the team in Avengers 15: MODOK's Revenge.
