Marvel Adds Five Films to Its Release Calendar

Posted 12:50 PM July 21st, 2014 by Jeff Giles

Marvel plays the information game about as well as any studio in Hollywood, parsing out tidbits at their leisure and generally getting everyone worked up over the smallest possible amount of news at any given time. We can now add a fresh chapter to their ongoing story of press mastery: Although they refrained to name any of the films in question, the studio has revealed that they'll be releasing five more movies between now and the end of 2019. The dates are as follows:


These releases add to a lengthening list of Marvel titles that already included Guardians of the Galaxy (8/1/14), Avengers: Age of Ultron (5/1/15), Ant-Man (7/17/2015), Captain America 3 (5/6/2016), and two more untitled films on (7/8/16 and 5/5/17).

As for what's in store vis a vis this list, that's anyone's guess, although another Avengers sequel and Doctor Strange seem like pretty safe bets to make the schedule, along with another Captain America sequel and a third Thor installment. But that still leaves plenty of question marks -- and plenty of opportunities for Marvel to dole out more news kernels between now and 2019, by which point they'll surely be teasing us with scraps of information about whatever they've got planned for 2024.
