Looks like the three seconds in the limelight DC Comics had gotten last week when they revealed their long list of upcoming superhero films has now been sidetracked by Marvel.
In an event held today, the brains behind Marvel Studios and Disney have revealed the list of superhero flicks that will be rivaling DC’s.
The eight films will include Captain Marvel, Inhumans, a stand alone film for Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) who will play a large role in Captain America, as well as the final films for both the Avengers and Thor. Unlike the final Thor film, the final Avengers film will be split into two part; one released in 2018 and the other for 2019.
Check out the upcoming Marvel films and their projected release dates.
UPCOMING MARVEL STUDIOS FILMS:
Captain America: Civil War (May 6, 2016)
Doctor Strange (Nov. 4, 2016)
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (May 5, 2017)
Thor: Ragnarok (July 27, 2017)
Black Panther (Nov. 3, 2017)
Marvel’s The Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 (May 4, 2018)
Captain Marvel (July 6, 2018)
Inhumans (Nov. 2, 2018)
Marvel’s The Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 (May 3, 2019)
Also revealed, or not revealed at the press event, the identity of who will play the high-publicized role of Stephen Vincent Strange or as well all know him, Doctor Strange.
For the past 24-hours, rumors had been circulating that Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch had been chosen for the role that many actors had been “attached” to.
Sadly, the confirmation many media outlets were trying to get did not come. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told reporters that if Cumberbatch has been chosen to play the role, then they would have announced it at today’s event.
But then again, what Feige said might just be a way to take all the attention away from that so when they do confirm it, it will be a surprise.
