Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige took the stage at a special event in El Capitan Theatre Hollywood, Los Angeles today to unveil the dates and titles for Marvel’s upcoming Phase Three films.
Phase Three begins after Avengers: Age of Ultron & Ant-Man, check out full slate of Phase Three films below:
- Captain America: Civil War May 6, 2016
“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.”
- Doctor Strange November 4, 2016
“It takes a while to work on these movies before they’re ready to come to you in theaters. 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,” said Kevin Feige.
“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.”
- Guardians of the Galaxy 2 May 5, 2017
“The Guardians will now return May 5, 2017, with writer/director James Gunn also returning to helm our oddball heroes’ next adventure.” Official title will be revealed soon.
- Thor: Ragnarok July 28, 2017
“Chris Hemsworth will don the Mighty Avenger’s cape once more for the hero’s third solo adventure, and with a title as foreboding as “Ragnarok” you know he’ll have to rise to his toughest challenge yet this time around!”
“This is a very important movie for us in Phase 3. 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,” said Kevin Feige.
- Black Panther November 3, 2017
“Chadwick Boseman will bring the Black Panther to life beginning with his role in Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, in theaters May 6, 2016, before starring in his own solo film, Marvel’s Black Panther, on November 3, 2017.
Boseman took the stage with Robert Downey, Jr. and Chris Evans to express his excitment, “I’m blessed to be a part of this Marvel Universe, and to work with you both, and I look forward to making magic together.”
“Black Panther and all of Wakanda is one of the most interesting characters in Marvel history. Something I already showed you today contains an Easter egg that leads directly into ‘Black Panther.’
He’s a bit of a prince, he may even become a bit of a king, but it’s all about how this isolationist country meets the world. Maybe it goes well, maybe it doesn’t,” said Feige.
- Captain Marvel July 6, 2018
“Carol Danvers will make her debut in Marvel’s Captain Marvel on July 6, 2018, headlining the first female-led film from Marvel Studios.”
“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,” said Feige.
- The Inhumans November 2, 2018
“November 3, 2018 will introduce dozens of characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 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,” said Feige.
- Avengers: Infinity War, Part 1 May 4, 2018
- Avengers: Infinity War, Part 2 May 3, 2019
“The Avengers have already triumphed over Loki, and next summer they’ll face Ultron…but nothing could prepare them for the menace of Thanos.
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. Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 is the beginning of the culmination of everything that has come before,” said Feige.
