2018 Superhero Movie Release Dates
2018 To Be Announced: The Amazing Spider-Man 3
Andrew Garfield returns in the next installment of The Amazing Spider-man saga. We don’t know who the team behind The Amazing Spider-Man 3 will be but it’s safe to assume Marc Webb will be back, as he’d been pretty vocal about wanting to continue the franchise.
March 23rd 2018: The Flash
The Flash will be played by Ezra Miller, best known for his work in We Need To Talk About Kevin and The Perks of Being A Wallflower. Its not clear if Miller will be playing Barry Allen or Wally West or whichever version makes it to the big screen, but I’m sure Warner Bros will try to make it very different than the recently launched CW series.
May 4th 2018: Avengers: Infinity War Part I
Marvel’s Phase Three will culminate on May 2018 and 2019 with an epic two part Avengers film. Avengers Infinity War will be released on May 4 2018 and May 3rd 2019.
The Avengers have already triumphed over Loki, and next summer they’ll face Ultron…but nothing could prepare them for the menace of Thanos.
July 6th 2018: Captain Marvel
The Captain Marvel movie will revolve around the Carol Danvers version of the character. Kevin Feige has described her as “earthbound and cosmic,” and “one of if not the most powerful character in the MCU.” No casting has been named for Captain Marvel, nor is a director or writer been announced.
July 27, 2018: Aquaman
In August 2o14, Warner Bros ordered two separate scripts for an Aquaman movie, which are being written by Will Beall (Gangster Squad) and Kurt Johnstad (300: Rise of an Empire). We’re not sure which of the two drafts will be used for the upcoming film. We know that Jason Momoa is set to play Aquaman.
Aquaman was created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger in November 1941. The sea-based superhero has the ability to live under water and communicate telepathically with sea creatures. His abilities have been mocked in pop culture, often portraying his powers as useless in comparison to the other superheroes. The character is also a founding member of the Justice League of America and was originally part of the now shelved George Miller-directed JLA live-action feature film project.
November 2nd 2018: Inhumans
Inhumans will introduce “dozens of new characters” and will be Marvel’s 20th movie. Those characters will have new powers, which means new special effects, and “refine and expand what the Marvel Cinematic Universe is all about.”
“We really do believe the Inhumans can be a franchise or a series of franchise unto themselves. They have dozens of powers and an amazing social structure. With our 20th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we wanted to continue to refine what that universe is about.”
A script has been completed by Joe Robert Cole, who came out of the same Marvel writer’s program that allowed Nicole Perlman to kickstart development of Guardians of the Galaxy. In the past, a logline for the script surfaced on some industry boards:
The Inhumans are aliens who were put on Earth as sleeper cell aliens to eventually call back their race to take over the planet. Ultimately, the group of aliens fully assimilates and don’t want to cause war.
. The Inhumans are a race of evolutionarily-advanced beings, created from humans by the Kree, one of the chief alien races in Marvel’s continuity, to fight another alien race, the Skrulls. It’s big-time Jack Kirby sci-fi wackiness, with a character roster that includes Black Bolt, a ruler who never speaks because his voice is so powerful, and a giant dog called Lockjaw.
