#Marvel from now to 2019 #SDCC


Marvel Studios
Marvel Studios and Disney are at it again by staking their claim to several dates running all the way to 2019. 
Below are the dates of all the movies Marvel currently have dated.
  • August 1, 2014 – Guardians of the Galaxy
  • May 1, 2015 – Avengers: Age Of Ultron
  • July 17, 2015 – Ant-Man
  • May 6, 2016 – Captain America 3
  • July 8, 2016 - Untitled Film
  • May 5, 2017 - Untitled Film
  • July 28, 2017 - Untitled Film
  • November 3, 2017 - Untitled Film
  • July 6, 2018 - Untitled Film
  • November 2, 2018 - Untitled Film
  • May 3, 2019 - Untitled Film
Following the current cycle Avengers 3 would likely be a July 6, 2018 release, with Doctor Strange seemingly a lock we can chalking off July 8, 2016 as a pretty safe bet. With those dates now eliminated that leaves five open remaining.
How many they will reveal at Comic-Con is unknown, but you better believe I will be waiting anxiously to hear....
