Just two weeks after Warner Bros. set its DC super-hero movie slate through 2020, Marvel unveiled its own ambitious movie plans through mid-2019, including two new characters, a new super-team, and a two-part “Avengers” movie. Previously, Marvel’s parent studio Disney had claimed dates for “Untitled” super-hero films for the next several years. At an event in Hollywood Tuesday, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige filled in the blanks. Fans invited along with press appeared thrilled at the news that Black Panther and Captain Marvel will be getting their own movies — and represent the studio’s first African-American and female super-heroes, respectively, in a title role.
The biggest surprise, however, was the news that the third “Avengers” film will be split into two parts. Titled “Avengers: Infinity War,” it will come out in May of 2018 and May of 2019.
Here is Marvel’s long-term lineup:
May 6, 2016: ”Captain America: Civil War.” Robert Downey Jr will appear as Iron Man in this adaptation of a comics story about a controversial super-hero registration program that pits Captain America against Iron Man. Black Panther will also make his first appearance in this movie.
Nov. 4, 2016: ”Doctor Strange.” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said this film about the supernatural will “open up an entire new corner of the cinematic universe.” He did not confirm a report in the Hollywood trade Deadline that Benedict Cumberbatch will play the mystical Doctor Strange.
May 5, 2017: ”Guardians of the Galaxy 2.” Marvel moved up the date to the sequel to this summer’s hit. It was originally scheduled to come out in July, 2017.
July 28, 2017: ”Thor: Ragnarok.”
Nov. 3, 2017: ”Black Panther.” Chadwick Boseman (Jackie Robinson in “42″) will star in the first Marvel movie to feature an African-American in the title role.
May 4, 2018: “Avengers: Infinity War part 1.” The third Avengers team-up film will be split into two parts.
July 6, 2018: Captain Marvel. The cosmic super-hero will be Marvel’s first female to get her own film.
Nov 2, 2018: ”Inhumans”. Another picture set in outer space that will introduce “dozens of new characters” said Kevin Feige, and could start its own franchise with its own spin-offs.
May 2019: ”Avengers: Infinity War Part 2.”
