2 years ago in 2014, Marvel announced their full Marvel Cinematic Universe slate that would comprise of Phase 3, with every movie coming out between 2016 and 2019.
There have been several date changes to the Phase 3 slate after the inclusion of “Spider-Man: Homecoming” together with “Ant-Man and the Wasp” but nothing beyond the current untitled “Avengers 4”. We’re being told that there’s a reason for the withhold of information.
In speaking to the Toronto Sun, Marvel Studios president Kevin Fiege confirmed that the company already know the first few movies that will be kicking off for Phase 4, slated for released on 1st May, 10th July, and 6th November, 2020 respectively.
However, Marvel will continue to be tight-lipped on subject mainly because revealing the movie titles will be giving away what’s coming up near the end of Phase 3. “Where we go after ‘Avengers’; what those 2020 films are, we’re pretty sure what those are going to be… but if I tell you that, we’re getting into spoilers,” said Fiege.
There’s no question that “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers 4” (previously titled “Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2”) are going to be game changers for the MCU superheroes. Iron Man, Captain America, and the rest of the Avengers will be teaming up to battle Thanos.
Feige’s comments on the future of the MCU imply that the next 2 “Avengers” films will introduce new characters, settings, or plot devices that hasn’t been made known yet. Those movies could also see major casualties, and Marvel presumably doesn’t want to spoil who will be killed.
Despite the lack of information, there are still movies like “Guardians of the Galaxy 3”, “Doctor Strange 2”, “Black Panther 2” and the long-awaited “Inhumans” that are possible contenders for the Phase 4 lineup.
As of now, it may be a year or 2 before we learn about Marvel’s Phase 4 schedule entirely. In case you’re curious, head on over here for the full Marvel movie slate up until 2019.
