Marvel Unveils Phase Three Line-Up; Black Panther and Captain Marvel Movies Announced

The battle between DC and Marvel movies is set to intensify, big-time.

On the heels of Warner Bros’ reveal of their DC movies line-up, Marvel has announced their epic new slate of movies.

May 6, 2016, will see Captain America 3, officially titled Captain America: Civil War, confirming the epic Civil War storyline that has been hinted at for a while now. Don’t forget, Robert Downey Jr. is to play a big part in that one. Doctor Strange, which is said to star Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead role, will be released on November 4, 2016.
