A May release date in 2018 brings the total to a dozen films between now and May 2019!
Here;s the tweet making the announcement:
Add this to the list of dates they announced the other day and you get a whole lotta movies.
Here’s the list as it stands right now:
- 1 August 2014 – Guardians of the Galaxy
- 1 May 2015 – Avengers: Age of Ultron
- 17 July 2015 – Ant-Man
- 6 May 2016 – Captain America 3
- 8 July 2016 – Unannounced
- 5 May 2017 – Unannounced
- 27 July 2017 – Unannounced
- 3 November 2017 – Unannounced
- 4 May 2018 – Unannounced
- 6 July 2018 – Unannounced
- 2 November 2018 – Unannounced
- 3 May 2019 – Unannounced
So that’s a lot of movies. I had previously thought that they might be pushing Avengers 3 into 2019 to make way for more new characters in phase three but maybe now that’s not the case. A may date in 2018 is a good date for another Avengers film and then that leaves three in phase 4 to explore some new territory after the Infinity Gauntlet story is resolved. Or maybe they stretch that out into phase 4? Who knows.
We know we’re getting Doctor Strange and we are all but certain we’ll get Ms. Marvel, fair chance at Black Panther (which I imagine they’ll just call Panther), there’s also Thor 3 to consider and Guardians of the Galaxy 2 but there’s a whole lotta Marvel characters in the stable so it’s a really awesome time to be a Marvel nerd.
