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.



Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will be released on May 5, 2017, and Thor 3, officially titled Thor: Ragnarok, will follow on July 28, 2017.


Marvel has confirmed that we’ll be getting a Black Panther movie, with Chadwick Boseman (42, Get On Up) cast in the lead role. Black Panther will be released on November 3, 2017.


Warner Bros has had one up on Marvel with the announcement of their solo Wonder Woman film, but Marvel have (finally) confirmed that they also have a female-led superhero pic on the schedule. Captain Marvel will be hitting U.S. cinemas on July 6, 2018.


An Inhumans movie has also been confirmed, with a release date set for November 2, 2018.


2018 is going to be a hell of a year for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only do we have Captain Marvel and Inhumans coming out, but we’ll also be getting the first part of Avengers: Infinity War. Part I will hit U.S. cinemas on May 4, 2018, and Part II is set for May 3, 2019. Infinity War is huge; we’ll be going into this a bit later.


In summary, here’s the line-up:

  • Captain America: Civil War – May 6, 2016.
  • Doctor Strange – November 4, 2016.
  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2 – May 5, 2017.
