2017 Superhero Movie Release Dates
2017 To Be Announced: Untitled Female Spider-man Universe Film
Sony is planning to release a spin-off film starring one of Spider-Man‘s female counterparts in 2017. There’s no word on which character it’ll be, though Spider-Woman and Black Cat are obvious options. Lisa Joy Nolan (Westworld, Pushing Daisies) has been hired to write. Read more here.
March 3rd 2017: The Wolverine 2
Hugh Jackman returns to play the titular X-Men character in a screenplay written by David James Kelly and once again directed by James Mangold. While the working title is “The Wolverine 2″, this is actually the third stand alone Wolverine movie. Not much other information is known at this time. 20th Century Fox is producing and releasing.
May 5th 2017: Guardians of the Galaxy 2
James Gunn returns to write and direct a film which will see the further adventures of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax The Destroyer, featuring Vin Diesel as Groot and Bradley Cooper as Rocket. Michael Rooker is expected to reprise his role as Yondu, as is Karen Gillan as Nebula. And Benicio Del Toro will likely return as The Collector. What could Guardians of the Galaxy 2 be about? Russ Fischer has put together an extensive report about Everything We Know About Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Considering Avengers: Infinity War will be coming in the two following years, we expect Guardians will help set-up the cosmic elements of the upcoming war.
June 23rd 2017: Wonder Woman
The stand-alone Wonder Woman film starring Gal Gadot is a spin-off of the Zack Snyder film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
July 14th 2017: Fantastic Four 2
With little of no information of released about the June 19th 2015 reboot, its hard to know anything about the announced/scheduled 20th Century Fox sequel. It will likely reteam Kate Mara as Sue Storm aka The Invisible Woman, Miles Teller as Reed Richards aka Mr. Fantastic, Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm aka The Thing and Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm aka The Human Torch. With Fantastic Four director Josh Trank set to helm an Untitled Star Wars Stand-Alone Project due to hit theaters in May 2018, I doubt he will have time to direct this sequel.
July 28th 2017: Thor: Ragnarok
Tom Hiddleston will return as Loki for the third installment of the Thor series which will pick up right after the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron and will “impact everything to come afterwards.”
Chris Hemsworth will don the Mighty Avenger’s cape once more for the hero’s third solo adventure, and with a title as foreboding as “Ragnarok” you know he’ll have to rise to his toughest challenge yet this time around!
November 3rd 2017: Black Panther
Chadwick Boseman will first debut as Black Panther alongside Iron Man and Captain America in Captain America: Civil War before getting his own stand alone film in 2017. His place in the Marvel Movie Universe has also been set up in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
The Black Panther is considered the first modern Black superhero. Created by writer-editor Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, he first appeared in Fantastic Four vol. 1, #52 in July 1966. The Black Panther is entitled to the use of a heart-shaped herb that grants the person who consumes it enhanced strength, agility, and perception.
November 17th 2017: Justice League Part 1
Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice sequel Justice League will team Henry Cavill (Superman), Ben Affleck (Batman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Jason Momoa (Aquaman) and possibly other characters/actors not yet announced.
