Marvel Announces Films Schedule into 2019

We can't be every where, so on days like this, we are glad we have folks like Steve "Frosty" Weintraub from Collider sitting front and center when a load of Marvel news is being dropped on press and fans alike at the El Capitan theater in Hollywood. The event kicked off with the chill inducing trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, which showed the union between Marvel and Disney could birth the creepiest covers of Disney animated movie songs imaginable as "I Got No Strings" echoed out over scenes of chaos and ...basically people screaming or fighting for their lives. AWESOME!

Kevin Feige took the stage to pat himself and countless other tireless crew members on the success of "Phase 2". He mentioned Ant-Man is now in day 50 of shooting and slid into an introduction of Phase 3. Captain America 3 (based on Marvel Comic's Civil War story line) is expected to hit May 6th, 2016, followed by Doctor Strange November 4th, 2016. Steve remarked the idea is to open up a new corner of the Marvel Universe. Obviously this corner delves heavily into MAGIC with the introduction of hell dimensions, alternate planes of reality and such...but who else will they roll out for these film elements, or do they just mean to introduce these things to the Marvel Cinematic Universe like Guardians of the Galaxy introduced the space faring peoples and not delve toooo deeply into it? My guess is the latter. I don't expect Brother Voodoo and Son of Satan films any time soon...tho I'd like to see Man Thing on Agents of SHIELD since he was mentioned, after all!

May 5th, 2017 sees the return of Guardians of the Galaxy to the big screen. July 28th, 2017 brings Thor: Ragnarok to theaters (after the events of Avengers 2), followed by the long awaited BLACK PANTHER film November 3rd, 2017!! And with that...hold onto your butts....

May 4th, 2018 - Avengers: Infinity War Part 1
July 6th, 2018 - Captain Marvel (the female one!)
November 2, 2018 - The Inhumans
May 3rd, 2019 - Avengers: Infinity War Part 2

Head to http://Collider.com for further words from Steve on this event and his latest interviews for Avengers: Age of Ultron!


Doctor Strange: Scott Derrickson will direct the film introducing the Master of the Mystic Arts to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "It takes a while to work on these movies before they're ready to come to you in theaters," said Feige. "Doctor Stephen Strange, brilliant neurosurgeon, bit of an arrogant fellow who gets in a car accident and ruins what he thinks are the tools of his trade: his hands." "In the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of the supernatural, that involves everything from quantum mechanics to string theory. The idea of this film is to open up a whole new corner of the cinematic universe. We want to enter, through Strange, the world of parallel dimensions."

Captain America: Civil War: It’ll be hero vs. hero as Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” erupts onto the big screen! Chris Evans will once again reprise his role as Captain America, joined by Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man and Chadwick Boseman, who will make his big screen debut as the Black Panther in the film. During a special presentation announcing the full slate for Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige brought all three actors out on stage, officially announcing the long-rumored title for the third Captain America adventure.

Thor: Ragnarok: "This is a very important movie for us in Phase 3," said Marvel's Kevin Feige. "We plan on taking Thor to another level. It picks up where we leave Thor in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' and impacts everything that comes after."

Guardians of the Galaxy 2: We previously reported that the sequel to Marvel's hit "Guardians of the Galaxy" would cruise into theaters in July of 2017...but Star-Lord and his crew have had a change of mind! The Guardians will now return May 5, 2017, with writer/director James Gunn also returning to helm our oddball heroes' next adventure.

Captain Marvel: The super heroine will make her debut in Marvel’s “Captain Marvel” on July 6, 2018, headlining the first female-led film from Marvel Studios. President Kevin Feige made the announcement at a special event revealing the full lineup of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 3 at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. “This Captain Marvel’s name is Carol Danvers," said Feige. "This film has been in the works almost as long as Doctor Strange or Guardians of the Galaxy before it came out, and one of the key things was figuring out what we wanted to do with it. Her adventures are very earthbound, but her powers are based in the cosmic realm.” 
** and we'll draw your attention to the retro style of the title lettering as well as the antiquing of those letters. Could this be a pre-quel story? Beyond that, it seems Marvel now has the perfect way to tie the Guardians to the Earth-bound Marvel heroes beyond a common enemy in Thanos. Also..just a suggestion...Katee Sackhoff for Captain Marvel....

Avengers: Infinity War: How big of a threat does Thanos pose, you ask? Big enough to span two epic films, beginning with Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War Part 1” on May 4, 2018, and concluding in Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War Part 2” on May 3, 2019 for one massive cinematic event. “We’ve always had a plan since Nick Fury broke into Tony Stark’s house and told him he’s part of a bigger universe," recalled Feige. "'Avengers: Infinity War Part 1' is the beginning of the culmination of everything that has come before."

Inhumans: “November 3, 2018 will introduce dozens of characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe," promised Feige. "We really do believe the Inhumans can be a franchise or a series of franchise unto themselves. They have dozens of powers and an amazing social structure. With our 20th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we wanted to continue to refine what that universe is about."

Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk.  Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.

Written and directed by Joss Whedon and produced by Kevin Feige, Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963. Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Jeremy Latcham, Patricia Whitcher, Stan Lee and Jon Favreau serve as executive producers. Get set for an action-packed thrill ride when The Avengers return in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” on May 1, 2015
