Today Marvel unveiled the final structure for their Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it looks rock solid! We’re talking Black Panther, The Inhumans and even Civil War geeks. Hell Carol Danvers is getting in on the action as they announced a Captain Marvel flick for 2018.
The full Lineup for Phase Three is:
- Captain America: Civil War – May 6, 2016
- Doctor Strange – November 4, 2016
- Guardians of the Galaxy 2 – May 5, 2017
- Thor: Ragnarok – July 28, 2017
- Black Panther – November 3, 2017
- Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 – May 4, 2018
- Captain Marvel – July 6, 2018
- Inhumans – November 2, 2018
- Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 – May 3, 2019
That’s a lot of Marvel action for the next 5 years. Sadly no official announcement was made on Benedict Cumberbatch taking on the role of Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange. They did however show off their King of Wakanda, the Black Panther. Chadwick Boseman is real as the leader of the African nation where copious amounts of Vibranium can be found. Panther will make his first Marvel movie appearance in the upcoming Captain America 3, although which side in the movie world he takes on the Civil War remains to be seen.
No casting info for Captain Marvel or the Inhumans were announced but we know they are actively searching. Captain Marvel will be in the same vein as Guardians of the Galaxy and I wouldn’t put it past them if they went ahead and introduced her in the will-be-awesome sequel. I’m definitely intrigued by the Inhumans, I mean Black Bolt’s voice can pulverize most anything so he will have to be a mute throughout the flick.
The money-maker is going to be Avengers: Infinity War. We’ve been clamoring for a Thanos throw down since the Avengers was first announced and more so when the Tesseract appeared in Captain America: The First Avenger. Marvel popped a reel on attendees at the conference and in it showed the lover of Death, literally, wielding the Infinity Gauntlet.
With Marvel’s slate filled to the brim with geeky goodness, what do you think geeks? Did anything get left out or is this enough to scratch that mad Marvel itch? Can we say DC who? Here’s the full logos for each of the movies:
