You guys, I am so excited right now that I don't even know how to begin. For months, the speculation about the lineup for the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been running wild.
And today, at their EPIC Marvel Event, all was revealed. Seriously, all of it. I'm sitting here at the El Captain Theatre typing this up from my phone right now, so I apologize if I'm rambling because my fingers are trying to form coherent words while really wanting to do this: a;skdjfasjdflahsdflajf
But yes, Marvel revealed EVERYTHING, and it was incredible.
Waiting for [Doctor Strange](movie:559685)? He's officially on his way with a slick logo:
You want [Thor 3](movie:956858) to be about Ragnarok? You got it:
And ladies and gentlemen, we are OFFICIALLY getting two long-rumored movies: [Black Panther](movie:9047) and Captain Marvel!!
Seriously sorry for the lack of close-up Black Panther logo, y'all. My phone froze up when it was on the screen.
Same goes for [The Inhumans](movie:910490), which is a go!
Oh, and about that Civil War/Infinity Gauntlet storyline...?
IT'S HAPPENING. THEY'RE BOTH HAPPENING.
And then the audience officially lost its shit...because Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, and our just-announced Black Panther, Chadwick Boseman, strutted on stage to announce it...
And here they are, your MCU movies through 2019:
Ignore the "Serpent Society" under [Captain America 3](movie:994409). That was a clever misdirection by Marvel to save the Civil War reveal for the end.
So. Here's the roadmap for the next 5 years:
May 5th, 2015 – AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON
July 17th, 2015 – ANT-MAN
May 6th, 2016 – CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR
November 4th, 2016 – DOCTOR STRANGE
May 5th, 2017 – GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2
July 28th, 2017 – THOR: RAGNAROK
Novembr 3rd, 2017 – BLACK PANTHER
May 4th, 2018 – AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR PART I
July 16th, 2018 – CAPTAIN MARVEL
November 2nd, 2018 – INHUMANS
May 3rd, 2019 – AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR PART II
THAT is how you do a lineup announcement.
UPDATE: Comics Alliance just updated its epic graphic plotting out all the comic book movies coming down the pipe for the next 6 years after Marvel's event:
Holy crap. What do you guys think?!
