Marvel Confirms Release Dates Through 2019
By Merrill Barr on July 19, 2014
If there’s one thing we know about Marvel, it’s they love them some cryptic announcements right before Comic-Con. As of yesterday, the company has confirmed they now have films scheduled through 2019 with the following release dates locked in: July 28 and November 3, 2017; July 6 and November 2, 2018; and May 3, 2019. We have to imagine what we’re looking at here, especially given there only being a solo May film in 2019, are the release dates for the remainder of the company’s phase three films, with the May 2019 film being Avengers 3 (which has some cast [mainly Downey Jr.] already locked in to appear). That would be our best guess.
As for what the other films are, who knows? There’s been a lot of speculation that there might be a Guardians of the Galaxy 2 in there, maybe something for Black Panther and probably Thor 3, but the truth is, until Marvel unveils the titles (which they could very likely do at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con), all we can do is speculate. The only Phase 3 films we know about for sure that have release dates are Ant-Man and Captain America 3. That’s it. To speculate beyond that point at this stage of the game would just be wishful thinking.
But, one thing we personally would love to see is Marvel take on some non-phase films. Films that don’t tie into an Avengers movie, but that are still cool. Like, say, a Black Widow movie. That would be cool as hell.
