With Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man bringing a close to Phase Two this year, 2016 ushers in Marvel’s massive plans for Phase Three. It starts with Captain America: Civil War, continues with Doctor Strange, moves into Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Spider-Man and beyond all leading to Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and 2.
We know who is writing and directing all of those movies. As for the rest of the Phase three films, things are a bit more murky. So we asked Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige about them. Feige gave us updates on Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Inhumans and Captain Marvel. Some updates are more significant than others. Below, read the Kevin Feige Phase 3 updates. Read More »

The information in the graphic above is now incorrect. After the landmark deal between Sony and Marvel late Monday night bringing Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including a new movie on July 28, 2017, Disney has announced they’ve pushed the third Thor film, Thor: Ragnarok, to November 3, 2017. That’s the day Black Panther was coming out. So that film has moved, too, as have Inhumans and Captain Marvel. Find out the new Marvel release dates below. Read More »

Marvel announced last week that not only was a Black Panther movie finally coming, they’d already hired Chadwick Boseman to play him. Which is great news for comic book fans, who’d been begging the studio to make a Black Panther film for years. For those less familiar with the comic book universe, though, that just makes things more confusing. Who is the Black Panther? Why are people so excited about him? And what’s he doing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
Good thing those non-comic-geeks have us to explain. Learn all about the Black Panther after the jump.

Living in the United States, it’s easy to look at our release calendar and see it as the be-all, end-all. But these days, international audiences make up far more of the audience for a film than the US release does. International box office dollars are increasingly important to studios, including Marvel Studios. For example, Guardians of the Galaxy was a big hit in the United States, but it grossed more overseas. Same for The Avengers and Iron Man 3.
So, while last week U.S. audiences got release dates for all of Marvel’s Phase Three, those essential international audiences were left in the dark. Now, the Marvel Phase 3 International release dates have been revealed. As usual of late, most of them take place before we get the films in the US. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The biggest news that came out of the recent Marvel Studios event was the addition of Black Panther to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sure, we knew it was coming. Unlike many other films revealed, however we found out not only the solo film release date, we found out which film would introduce the character (Captain America: Civil War) and the actor playing him, Chadwick Boseman. They also released a piece of concept art to the crowd. The other films revealed were cool, but sheer volume made Black Panther the king of the event.
Boseman purposely disappeared for a few days after the huge announcement, but recently discussed the event and his excitement. During his talk, he said the way Marvel is presenting the character has “never been done.” Read the full Chadwick Boseman Black Panther quote below. Read More »
We’re all curious to see just what Marvel has planned for the next couple films in its current cycle, and then for the nine-film Phase Three. And we’ve resisted learning too much about Avengers: Age of Ultron, so we’re happily in the speculation camp with most of you. And for those who haven’t been Marvel Comics fans for a long time, the films announced this week might seem like a disparate bunch of stories. How do all these movies tell one unified story thread?
My friend Jackson is a comic book writer, an editor, and screenwriter, and he’s got a pretty compelling vision of what Marvel might have planned. After I read his unified theory of Marvel’s Phase Three plan I showed it to Peter, and he loved it enough that we’re presenting it to you now.
Nothing that you’ll find below is confirmed — this is speculation, but well-informed speculation. If you already know these comics and characters, take it as a jumping-off point for your own discussions about what Marvel might be doing. If you don’t consider this a second-level primer as to what Marvel might be up to. Read More »
