Get Your Money Ready So Marvel Can Take It All

Turns out people still are excited about comic book movies.

During a "secret" event for fans and press today in Los Angeles at Disney's El Capitan theater, Marvel Studios revealed their upcoming plans for the next few years.  They revealed the titles and release dates for nine, count em, nine all new Marvel "Phase 3" films.  A proposition which sounds less like a plan for entertainment releases and more like a calculated ploy to take all the money right out of your wallet.

Which it is.

But hey, fuck it right because there are gonna be a ton of new Marvel movies!

Suck on this world!
That's right, although the sequel to The Avengers isn't even out yet, Marvel and their parent company Disney already have two more Avengers movies coming for your neck.  

Combining both a plan for established characters like Captain America having more sequels, and introducing new fan favorites like Doctor Strange, Marvel has their schedule set through 2018.  That's right, 2018.  So if you are jazzed to see the big screen adaptation of The Inhumans, you have quite a wait ahead of you.

The schedule is as follows:

  • Captain America: Civil War (May 6th, 2016);
  • Dr. Strange (Nov. 4th, 2016);
  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (May 5th, 2017);
  • Thor: Ragnarok (July 18th, 2017);
  • Black Panther (November 3, 2017);
  • Avengers: Infinity War, Part 1 (May 4th, 2018);
  • Captain Marvel (July 6th, 2018);
  • Inhumans (November 2nd, 2018);
  • Avengers: Infinty War, Part 2 (May 3rd, 2019).
Comic fans have much to be excited for if the titles of the films are to be believed.  Marvel's "Civil War" storyline was one of the most popular series in the company's history, pitting superheroes like Iron Man against Cap' in a giant throwdown.

Fan favorite Thor is also returning, along with everybody's lovable favorite mercenary team in Guardians of the Galaxy 2.  

However, one particular entry is the most exciting to one particular comic book fan (me.)  Mother fucking Black Panther, long rumored to be getting his own movie, is coming to the big screen in 2017.  That's right, one of the (tragically) few black superheroes, African prince and Marvel's version of Batman is getting his own movie, and they even had concept art to prove it.

This was my childhood, and it was awesome.

So there you are public, you asked for it, and you got it.  Enjoy the next 5 years.
