Hey all you Marvel fans out there!!! Got some news. Still looking forward to the next few films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Well, so am I!!
Let's take a look back at a few films first. Since the release of Phase 2 that started with 2013's Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World and the most recent Captain America: The Winter Soldier, I guess one can argue that the Phase 2 line is still going strong!!! With the new Guardians of the Galaxy hitting theaters in just a mere few weeks, and 2015's newest Avengers Age of Ultron, arriving in May 2015, it is said that Ultron is set to conclude the Phase 2 line of Marvel films.
Now in an interview with IGN, Marvel president and producer Kevin Feige stated
Guardians of the Galaxy has fulfilled our desire to do something totally different, to start production, each year in a film that was a sequel to a pre-existing, successful franchise and to do something new.
What this means is that Marvel will continue to provide sequels to already well-known characters (Mostly Thor, Captain America and Avengers) and introduce new and fresh characters that have never been seen on screen before. The list for Phase 3 is already starting to take form as we speak. While we already know about 2015's Ant-Man to kick off the Marvel Universe Phase 3, Hollywood's magazine The Wrap has rumored that Marvel will expand on Phase 3 with more films than both Phase 1 and Phase 2 had.
The Wrap has stated that in addition to [Ant-Man](movie:9048), Captain America 3, and Doctor Strange already in line, Marvel has already put slots in for 5 separate films to be released on (according to IMDb) July 28, 2017, November 3, 2017, July 6, 2018, November 2, 2018 and May 3, 2019.
Here's my prediction for what Marvel Phase 3 should look like:
- Ant Man (July 17, 2015)
- Captain America 3 (May 6, 2016)
- [Doctor Strange](movie:559685) (July 8, 2016)
- Black Widow spin-off (July 28, 2017)
- Thor 3 (November 3, 2017)
- Black Panther (July 6, 2018)
- Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (November 2, 2018)
- Avengers 3 (May 3, 2019)
But that's just my prediction on what Marvel Phase 3 could look like, but Ant-Man, Captain America 3 and Doctor Strange have already been confirmed.
So now I want your opinion. Which well-known Marvel characters should get another sequel in Phase 3? Which Marvel Characters should be introduced in Phase 3? Let me know what you think about the proposed line of films. Comment below and let me know what you think.
