CBMB: Marvel Sets The Slate for the Next 4 Years

By Muuka Muyumba

Today, Disney set a boatload of dates for its upcoming slate of films across several silos (Marvel, Pixar, and Disney Animation) for the future. Marvel fans were particularly intrigued that they set a bunch of dates for their upcoming slate as well, but without any clear indication as to those titles.

Marvel now has dates set on 5/7/21, 7/30/21, 11/5/21, 2/18/22, 5/6/22, and 7/29/22. Currently, Marvel has announced 4/27/18 for Avengers: Infinity War, 7/6/18 for Ant-Man and The Wasp, 3/8/18 for Captain Marvel, 5/3/19 for Avengers 4, and 7/5/19 for Spider-Man Sequel. The most obvious date, other than those already slated, has to be that February date in 2022 which would be perfect for the Black Panther sequel to the blockbusting first installment.

The less obvious titles might be Spider-Man 3, Ant-Man 3, Dr. Strange 2, Captain Marvel 2, another Avengers team up, and an all-female film featuring Valkyrie and others.

The scheduling also might be a clearer signal that Marvel Studios isn’t concerned with the possible influx of heroes and villains from a potential Fox merger. Disney and Fox announced a merger in December 2017 that could see the X-Men and Fantastic Four characters flood into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The merger is currently under government review, but Disney’s CEO Robert Iger made it clear that Marvel wants their characters back and for good.

Indications are that Fox hasn’t shied away from its future plans either with recent reports that development is going on undeterred. Fox is currently working on a slate that will give the audience Deadpool 2 in May 2018 and X-Men: Dark Phoenix in December 2018, then 3 titles in 2019, and 3 more in 2020.

Fox has plans a Silver Surfer with Brian K. Vaughn, a Doctor Doom project with Noah Hawley, X-Force with director Drew Goddard, and the never-ending development of Channing Tatum’s Gambit movie.

Whether Marvel and Fox play ball, it is clear that Marvel will have a lot of theatrical releases for the foreseeable future.
