[Updated]: In light of recent Spider-Man related news, several MCU movies have been shifted date-wise. Films with stars next to them have been moved. Check out the updated list below.
Let’s be real here: I am totally sobbing right now.
Back to the story at hand, earlier today emperor/overlord/Marvel mastermind/President Kevin Feige hosted a special conference at the El Capitan Theater and invited hundreds and hundreds (around 600 to be exact) of fans to take a peek into the studio’s upcoming plans.
And by peek, I mean Feige—along with Overlord Joss Whedon, the Russo brothers (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), and Scott Derrickson (Doctor Strange)–unleashed a FLOODGATE of BRAND NEW INFORMATION including the complete list of phase three movies.
This floodgate of information included the announcement of long-waited films like Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and The Inhumans. Chadwick Boseman was also confirmed as already being cast for the role of Black Panther, which is definitely a decision I can get behind. This is also means that Andy Serkis is most likely (there’s like a 99.9% chance) Ulysses Klaw like the internet guessed.
Such announcements were also accompanied by the announcement of more Captain America, Thor, and Avengers films. Cap’s upcoming movie will be dealing with the Civil War (I’m not sure how that’s going to work, but I do know that Tony Stark will definitely be involved. So, I’m guessing his film will be directly dealing with the events that unfold in Age of Ultron), while Thor’s film will be dealing with the always dramatic and world-ending event that is Ragnarök. I expect Loki and many other badass Asgardians (hopefully, people like The Enchantress, The Executioner, Sigyn, and more show up) make an appearance. Films like Guardians of the Galaxy 2 as well as Doctor Strange are also on the schedule for the titan of a studio.
Personally, I am extremely content with Marvel. I have been b*tching and frothing at the mouth for awhile for a Black Panther and Captain Marvel film and it is finally, finally happening. I’m guessing this is the studio’s way of saying: “Look, we hear you. Shut the f*ck up already.”
In any case, I’m definitely content with taking several seats at this point as I wait for these glorious movies to hit the screen.
And because I am an asshole and cannot resist taking a shot anyone/starting a flame war, I have this to say:
Your move, DC.
