Marvel Unveils Phase III Plans that Include ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ ‘Black Panther’ and ‘InHumans’

75Some pretty big news from the Marvel camp today. Not to be outdone by the big slate announcement made by DC and Warner Brothers, the folks at Marvel now have revealed their plans for Phase Three, which run through 2019. There were plenty of noteworthy announcements, but two in particular were that Chadwick Boseman has been cast as Black Panther, plus Marvel’s first female centered film won’t be about the Black Widow character, but will be Captain Marvel instead. The other big ones of course were names for the next Captain America title (Civil War, as expected, though a rumor earlier had it being called Serpent Society) and the one for the next Avengers flick (Infinity War, which will be a two parter). Basically, aside from what we already know for 2015, the announcement surrounds 2016-2019. Things kick off in 2016 with Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange, with Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Thor: Ragnarok, and Black Panther being set for 2017. In 2018 we have Captain Marvel as well as Inhumans, alongside Avengers: Infinity War – Part I. Phase Three wraps up in 2019 with Avengers: Infinity War – Part II. The thought of a two part Avengers film really is exciting to me, though all of these movies have my attention in one way or another. Count me in all around. You can see the schedule listed below, and obviously stay tuned for more on each one. Superheroes aren’t going anywhere folks, so get used to them.

Here is the slate that Marvel has planned:

Captain America: Civil War (May 6, 2016)
Doctor Strange (November 4, 2016)
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (May 5, 2017)
Thor: Ragnarok (July 28, 2017)
Black Panther (November 3, 2017)
Captain Marvel (July 6, 2018)
Inhumans (November 2, 2018)
Avengers: Infinity War – Part I (May 4, 2018)
Avengers: Infinity War – Part II (May 3, 2019)
