Marvel have seen the challenge of DC's movie slate with their own! Marvel have announced their entire Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 3 movie titles and there are some highly anticipated titles announced!
Avengers: Age of Ultron will see the end of Phase 2 and it has been well known that Ant-Man would be kicking off Phase 3. With the movie hitting road bumps on the road to completion we will just have to hope it doesn't start the wave off on a bad note.
We knew Captain America had a third film in the works but who would have foreseen the signs of us heading towards Civil War sooner than we thought! With Captain America: Civil War we could see the end of Steve Rogers if that does not happen in Avengers: Age of Ulltron, but only time will tell.
Doctor Strange will take the next spot in the list. This title has been buzzing in news of late over who will play the famed Sorcerer Supreme and news has it Benedict Cumberbatch will be taking the role. This film will also open up the Cinematic Universe to the mystical realms of the Marvel comics, something which should be very interesting.
The Guardians will take up the next position with us most likely seeing Adam Warlock entering and possibly more on Cosmos and Howard the Duck. I would also love to see Quasar brought into the franchise and for Karen Gillian to reprise her role as Nebula.
The fall of Asgard will be the scene for the next movie. With this film we could see the fall of Odin and perhaps more wanted by fans is the return of Tom Hiddleston as Loki. I would also love to see the introduction of the Enchantress and The Executioner in this movie as I feel they are the final pieces from the Thor comics we need to see.
All hail the king! King T'Challa is finally arriving in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He is a character highly anticipated by fans to appear in the franchise. How the movie will play out is a complete mystery and if they will feature King T'Chaka dying and T'Challa being a new king to the thrown are possible, but we will have to be patient and see.
I think we can safely assume the Avengers could see a lot more faces in its third and fourth films. Infinity Wars is the end story of the Infinity Gauntlet and Thanos's whole plan will finally be revealed. Needless to say it is a title we are all wanting to see and the fact it is in two parts suggests a very involved story line.
Now anyone to have followed my profile will know I am literally shaking with excitement over this one. I have wanted to see Carol as Captain Marvel enter the Cinematic franchise for years! It also explains why Marvel have spent the last few years re-marketing the character. So hopefully we will see and very interesting first female centric film in the franchise.
The Inhumans will be the final movie in the set before the second part of Avengers: Infinity War which will end the third wave of the Cinematic Universe. The Inhumans will be interesting and I can not wait to see how the actor who is chosen to play Blackbolt portrays a character that can not speak without destructive consequences. It will be a very demanding role being unable to convey a characters emotions, thoughts and feelings without words.
