Marvel Announces Another Untitled Release for 2018

The Avengers Robert Downey Jr. Chris

Marvel has announced the release date for another untitled film, this one dated May 4, 2018.

The news comes less than a week after Disney and Marvel staked out five other dates from 2017 to 2019.

The May 4, 2018 slot was vacated Wednesday morning by Sony when the studio disclosed it had undated “The Amazing Spider-Man 4” as part of re-positioning its key franchise. 

Marvel is likely to announce several of the new titles as part of the next wave of films that make up its cinematic universe at next week’s San Diego Comic-Con. It presents on July 26.

Guardians of the Galaxy,” which bows Aug. 1, is Marvel’s tenth film since it started financing and producing its own films beginning with “Iron Man” and “The Incredible Hulk” in 2008. Should that film succeed at the box office, sequels and spinoffs are likely and could land the property one of the new slots.

Marvel already had a third “Captain America” scheduled for May 6, 2016, pitting it against Warner Bros.’ “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

Another possible franchise starter, “Doctor Strange,” is also dated for July 8, 2016.

Here’s the full Marvel schedule through 2019:

2015:
May 1: The Avengers: Age of Ultron
July 17: Ant-Man

    Hello mates, how is all, and what you desire to say concerning this
    paragraph, in my view its genuinely amazing for me.

  5. Ok, everyone, Marvel fans and/or movie fans around the world. LISTEN UP. Here’s what I really think will happen for Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, now that we have the May 2018 date. Okay. Here it goes:

    1) “Ant-Man” – Confirmed for 7/17/15
    2) “Captain America 3” – Confirmed for 5/6/16
    3) “Doctor Strange” – Likely to be confirmed for 7/8/16 at SDCC 2014
    4) “Thor: Ragnarok” – Likely to be confirmed for 5/5/17 at SDCC 2014
    5) “Black Panther” – Likely to be confirmed for 7/28/17 at SDCC 2014
    6) “The Indestructable Hulk” – Likely to be confirmed for 11/3/17 at SDCC 2014
    7) “Black Widow Solo Movie” – 5/4/18
    8) “Marvel’s The Runaways” – 7/6/18
    9) “Marvel’s The Inhumans” – 11/2/18
    10) “Marvel’s Avengers: War of Two Universes” – 5/3/19 – End of Phase 3 of MCU

    Oh and for “The Avengers 3” for May 3, 2019, I hope it will be titled “Avengers: War of Two Universes” where we will see the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Avengers team-up to battle Thanos and his Infinity Gauntlet along with his minions including Ronan, Nebula, Korath, Loki, The Other, and…. wait for it…. RED SKULL RETURNING AS COSMIC SKULL! OH YEAH, BABY! WHOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      hey al…your response here was more informative than the entire friggin’ article…nice work…

    • jedi77 says:

      Three problems with your analysis – good as it is:
      1: no way they are going to wait five years for an Avengers sequel.
      2: If Guardians join the Avengers, Guardians will have to have had a sequel by then – otherwise they’ll have been forgotten.
      3: there is quite a lot of talk about an Iron man 4, and seeing what the third delivererd i BO, I believe it’s coming.

      But I like the Black Panther, Black Widow solo movies. They could be interesting. Hope you’re right on that point.

  6. Well as Long as Black Panther and Captain (Nee Ms.) Marvel are in there it’s great news.
