In a special event held at the El Capitan theatre in Hollywood, Marvel Studios President Kevin Fiege announced the line up of Marvel movies until 2019. This is known as Phase Three.
Phase Two ends with the movie Ant Man due out in cinemas in July 2015.
The most exciting thing about Phase Three, is the fact there has been a female-lead superhero movie announced, in the form of Captain Marvel. Although this isn’t scheduled for release until July 2018, Marvel fans around the world are
cheering. There are discussions on who would be the best to play Carol Danvers, and personally I think Gwendoline Christie would be AMAZEBALLS.
What was glaringly obvious to most people was the fact that the rumoured Black Widow movie hasn’t been announced! I mean seriously! While we know that she is already an established character in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), this doesn’t mean we don’t want her to have her own movie. Natasha Romanoff is such an enigma, she would have an amazing backstory, which should definitely be explored. Why Fiege?? WHY?? Don’t you read KiKi & Tea???
The other disappointment was the fact that Mark Ruffalo isn’t getting his own Hulk movie. I know that there are already two Hulk movies out there, but I think they should both just be forgotten. Ruffalo’s Hulk and his Bruce Banner are just so likeable, and it would be interesting to see what story they would tell.
Even though I’m disappointed in no Black Widow or Hulk movies, here is the full list of Phase Three Movies and their release dates:
- Captain America: Civil War – May 2016
- Doctor Strange – November 2016
- Guardians of the Galaxy 2 – May 2017
- Thor: Ragnarok – July 2017
- Black Panther – November 2017
- Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 – May 2018
- Captain Marvel – July 2018
- Inhumans – November 2018
- Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 – May 2019
So Cupcake, what are you looking forward to the most? Well peeps, I’m glad you’ve asked! I am a BIG Captain America fan, and Captain America: Civil War sounds like it’s going to be EPIC. With Cap clashing with the feisty and egotistical Tony Stark, there is sure to be fireworks. I’m also looking forward to Guardians of the Galaxy 2, as the first one was fantastic. And of course I’m also looking forward to Thor: Ragnarok, because Loki.
On top of all that, I’m really interested to see how Phase Three fits into the ABC tv show Marvel Agents of SHIELD. Both Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Solider directly influenced episodes of AOS, with episodes of the show airing directly after the release of these movies, it was really great to see the tie-in (and hilarious to see Melinda May and Skye drool over Thor).
With Phase Three beginning in May 2016, you may wonder what is left of Phase Two?
Well we still have Agents of SHIELD, currently in it’s second season, which airs on Channel 7 in Australia. In 2015, we have our first female-lead Marvel tv show in Agent Carter (I’M SO EXCITED I COULD JUST SCREAM) which will run for eight episodes. As far as movies go, Avengers: Age of Ultron is released in May 2015 (I’M ALSO SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS OMG), and then Ant Man in July 2015. If you haven’t watched the trailer for Age of Ultron yet, do yourself a favour and watch below:
