With the addition of Ant-Man and the Wasp to Phase Three, some films needed to get shuffled around to accommodate the newest project. But these are tiny heroes so the moves weren’t too off-putting.
Marvel Studios already made the announcement that Black Panther would be getting a bump up, going from July 6, 2018 to February 16, 2018. With T’Challa looking to make his debut in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War I’m of the mind that the sooner we get to see the regal superhero in a solo film the better.
Unfortunately another film had to get pushed back a bit further. Captain Marvel has been pushed from November 2, 2018 to March 8, 2019.
These new date aren’t the only ones the studio has claimed. Looking forward to Phase Four, Marvel Studios has planted their flags in three prospective dates for future film.
We can expect movies on May 1, 2020, July 10, 2020 and November 6, 2020. Being so far off means even speculation as to what these films could be is futile. But with three films in one year we can assume at least one will be a major Avenger in a solo film while the other two could possibly be sequels for some of the smaller characters (Doctor Strange or another Guardians Of The Galaxy) or brand new concepts for the big screen.
I wouldn’t expect concrete confirmation as to what Marvel Studios is planning any time soon though. At least until Phase Three is almost at an end, in late 2018 or early 2019.
