We’ve got a good idea of what Marvel Studios has planned for the next few years. Clearly we know many details about Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The First Avenger, and a bit less about Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Beyond that we’ve got a pretty good idea that Black Panther and Doctor Strange will get their time as leads of feature films. Stan Lee, who co-created the Marvel Universe in the early ’60s, has just said as much, supporting a great deal of other comments various people have made in the past year. And while Lee may not be a creative or executive force at Marvel at this point, he also said there are plans for another team we’ve heard mentioned on and off: The Inhumans. Read More »

Marvel Studios has no shortage of characters to develop as the stars of new films, but the company does have to focus on a few per year. The lineup for the next few Marvel films includes new outings for Thor, Captain America, and the Avengers, and the debuts of Ant-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy. What comes next? Doctor Strange, the “sorcerer supreme” of the Marvel Universe, is likely to be among the following lineup.
Perpetually a topic of rumor but not yet confirmed is Black Panther, a long-running Marvel character introduced in the mid-’60s. The leader of fictional African nation Wakanda, Black Panther was Marvel’s first attempt to create a major black superhero. And while he never hit popularity levels to rival Spider-Man, he’s persisted as a fan favorite for decades.
