Huge Marvel Phase 3 Movies announcement

When you host a press conference at El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood that has Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, Avengers director Joss Whedon, Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson and Captain America 2 and 3 directors the Russo Brothers in attendance you know it’s going down!

The announcements included new titles like Black Panther and Inhumans, plus two more Avengers films.

Marvel also made a official something we have speculated on here at CULT FACTION – Captain America: Civil War  will hit theatres on May 6, 2016, and pushed the release of Doctor Strange to Nov. 4, 2016.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2, which will see James Gunn return to direct, will hit theatres on May 5, 2017 (moved up from the previously announced date of July 2017).

That will be followed by next Thor film, Thor 3: Ragnarok, slated for July 28, 2017.

Black Panther, headlined by Chadwick Boseman (42 and Get On Up )will hit theatres on November 3rd 2017.

Feige also announced that the studio will make a Captain Marvel film, set for July 6, 2018. It will be the studio’s first female-led film, ending speculation that Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) would be the first female character to get her own stand-alone movie.

Marvel will also make an Inhumans film, set for Nov. 2, 2018. The Inhumans are a group of superpowered alien beings that have appeared in various Marvel comics including Fantastic Four and Captain America.

Two more ensemble Avengers films were also dated: Avengers: Infinity War — Part 1 for May 4, 2018, and Part 2 for May 2019. All films will be released in 3D.

Marvel has already announced dates for several Phase 3 films: Ant-Man, starring Paul Rudd, is slated for July 17, 2015, and Captain America 3, which will star Chris Evans, is slated for May 6, 2016.

Doctor Strange had been originally dated for July 8, 2016, but Derrickson and Marvel have been unable to nail down a leading man.
