So many things were revealed by Marvel today around 2pm! They more or less set the record straight on a lot of speculation for their movie release schedule for the next 10 MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) films. Let’s jump in to what we learned:
1. Dr. Strange is set to release November 4th, 2016 and will be an intro to the “supernatural side” of Marvel. It also is set to open the door to alternate dimensions, which could be interesting depending on some of the rumors about Sony’s Spider-Man franchise! It could also tap into the Miles Morales version of Spider-Man from the Ultimate Universe potentially!
2. Despite attempting to fool the crowd present into thinking the title was ‘The Serpent Society’, it was revealed Captain America 3 is indeed titled Civil War. A scene showing Cap and Tony discussing Scarlet Witch was shown, fore shadowing the event. Tony was also shown talking to the Black Panther, played by Chadwick Boseman, asking him to choose a side.
3. Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is ahead of schedule and will release May 5th, 2017. That’s great because it moves up other films behind it!
4. Thor 3: Ragnarok has taken Guardians 2’s original release date of July 28th, 2016, and takes place after Avengers 2: Age of Ultron. The character will be dealing with post Ultron plot points as well as the Ragnarok story line, which we know should present major changes for the character!
5. Black Panther will indeed have his own film after debuting in Captain America 3: Civil War! Its been decades in the works, and the biggest question I have is what will the story line be?
6. On July 6th, 2018 Carol Danvers gets her own movie with Captain Marvel! This will be a movie that blends Earth and Outer Space adventures. I have to speculate that hopefully it connects things between the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy!
7. The Inhumans continue to grow in popularity and will continue to do so as their movie will release November 2nd, 2018! There are a lot of us that have been waiting for this as long as the Black Panther movie! Let’s just hope all that waiting pays off!
8/9/10. This is the big one, we all knew they were building to it and now we have confirmation. Avengers: Infinity War. It’s going to be three parts, the first releasing May 4th, 2018 with parts 2 and 3 both following up in 2019!!! This is going to be the culmination of everything! Guadians! Avengers! Thanos! THE INFINITY GAUNTLET!!!!!! Minds are going to blow like watermelons at a Gallagher show when these bad boys come out!!!! I. CAN’T. WAIT! …But I have to…
