Marvel Studios Sets Two New Release Dates…But for Which Movies?


sZfNBEarlier this year, Marvel Studios began their journey into Phase 2 of their shared film universe with the rather polarizing Iron Man 3. Later this year, we’ll get to witness Thor: The Dark World, the second film centered on the Asgardian. And as we know, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is currently filming, with Guardians of the Galaxy to begin shortly. There is also Ant-Man which will hopefully begin production some time next year and of course, the highly anticipated Avengers sequel that will also release in 2015.

Marvel Studios also has Dr. Strange in the works, with numerous other films rumored to be in some phase of production. Today, the Disney-owned studio pinned down two more release dates, May 6th 2016 and May 5th 2017. What we don’t know, is which properties these dates belong to. One of them is likely for the Strange film, but the other is up for grabs. Some of the rumored films are Black Panther which has been talked about for some time now. Another would be the Inhumans, which has been discussed more recently or possibly the Runaways. A more realistic choice would be a third film in the Thor franchise or possible Captain America. One thing to keep in mind that Marvel usually has two films per year, so we will see a couple more dates show up on the calendar.

We will likely know more when Marvel takes the stage at next month’s San Diego Comic Con, which ComicBookTherapy will be attending, so stay tuned for all sorts of great information during that time.
