Marvel Studios have today announced release dates for five new untitled Marvel Cinematic Universe motion pictures set to launch in cinemas worldwide between 2017 and 2019. Ever since 2008, the aforementioned superhero film franchise has only grown and grown, to the extent that it's now widely regarded as one of the most profitable and critically consistent ongoing series of the 21st Century, with the recent acclaim surrounding Captain America: The Winter Soldier back in March only strengthening this long-running hypothesis.
Less clear at the moment is precisely which films will slot into the aforementioned release windows. Captain America 3, Thor 3, Doctor Strange and The Avengers 3 are all confirmed to be in development for a future worldwide release (as is Ant-Man, of course, now set to be directed by Peyton Reed), but odds are that the first three of those motion pictures will land on our screens at some point in 2016 or the previously-confirmed release date of May 5th, 2017. Some reporters would have you believe that Black Widow and Black Panther will slot into the overarching structure of 'Phase Three', and whilst they mightn't be wrong, our suggestion would be to wait for Marvel Studios' game-changing San Diego Comic-Con panel next week so as to learn the truth of the matter in its satisfying entirety.
Five further Marvel Cinematic Universe cinematic instalments will première in cinemas worldwide on July 28th, 2017; November 3rd, 2017; July 6th, 2018; November 2nd, 2018 and May 3rd, 2019.
