On Friday Marvel Studios added five new films to their release slate leading up to 2019. These unannounced titles add to a schedule that already has two unknowns, and with Marvel boss Kevin Feige confirming that Marvel know’s exactly what all these features are going to be, we can expect to see most, if not, all of Phase 3 laid out this Saturday during the Marvel Studios panel at Comic-Con 2014.

What we know so far is that Ant-Man begins shooting next month for a July 2015 release – two months after Phase 2 concludes with Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron. After that, directors Anthony and Joe Russo return with Captain America 3 (no official title yet). With Scott Derrickson already announced to direct Doctor Strange, it’s a probable release for 2016 as well, taking the July date Marvel set last summer.

Toss in Thor 3 which already has writers as another absolute somewhere in (the likely extended) Phase 3, and that leaves us with 5 unknowns. Let’s take a quick look at some possibilities, a few of which are more hopeful rather than realistic. We’ll even throw in a curve ball.

Update 1: Benedict Cumberbatch downplays Doctor Strange Rumors.

Update 2: Joaquin Phoenix is rumored to be in talks for Doctor Strange.


Black Panther

Ultron is coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe next year in The Avengers sequel and in it, he’ll be on a quest to continually evolve by upgrading himself. If that plot point is anything like the comics, and we suspect it is, then Ultron may be headed to the high-tech Marvel Comics African nation known as Wakanda, home of Black Panther.

Given what we heard a while back about the status of the Black Panther screenplay draft, this story is unlikely to happen as a solo adventure. Feige tells Collider that part of the juggling act of continually adding new properties is deciding which gets sequels and which get introduced, and so he hints that Black Panther could be a part of their efforts to “introduce new ones within the body of the films.” So, Black Panther guest appearance instead? Still, we can hope.


Ms. Marvel

While Marvel Studios president of production Kevin Feige says they don’t currently have plans for a leading lady solo movie and that they won’t be “swayed by any backlash,” we hope their bigger picture story plans for Phase 3 of the MCU involve Carol Danvers a.k.a. Ms. Marvel - who eventually takes on the mantle of Captain Marvel.

There are several versions of Ms. Marvel in the comics and the character(s) has a key role to play in The Avengers books. She also shares history with a certain important alien race (the Kree) who are introduced in Guardians of the Galaxy and who may have a role to play in the mysterious plot of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC. Ms. Marvel has been rumored to be a part of The Avengers 2 since its predecessor hit theaters in 2012 and Natalie Portman did go on record saying that she heard Marvel has a female superhero movie in the works…



Comic Con Marvel Nova Centurion Richard Rider 5 Movies We Want Marvel To Announce At Comic Con 2014

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is practically a guarantee at this point even though the first has yet to hit theaters. Early reactions are positive and Marvel is banking greatly on the Marvel cosmic side which GOTG introduces. Director James Gunn even said he’s a lock to direct it if the first does “well” which it will. He told us this weekend that he prefers to stick to the cosmos for his next Marvel feature, and while that probably means more Guardians, he also said in the past he hopes his first Marvel effort expands into other things (spinoffs) so he has some ideas in mind. Of the many cosmic Marvel characters Guardians of the Galaxy introduces and teases, the most notable featured in his movie are the Nova Corps, the galactic police force of the Marvel universe.

With the more practical design of the Nova Corps officers featured in Guardians of the Galaxy, a super-powered Nova Centurion like the titular “Nova” characters from the comics may not necessarily be a fit for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but with the introduction of Nova Prime Irani Rael (Glenn Close) we can only hope that we see a Nova officer head to earth and deputize young Earth kid Richard Rider. Picture a galactic war in Phase 4 where Rider is the sole surviving Nova Centurion after the planet Xandar (introduced in GOTG) is ambushed and has to embrace all the power of the Nova Corps. The tie-ins to the Marvel cosmic universe, future Guardians of the Galaxy stories, Thanos and Earth-based teams are ripe for the picking. Guardians of the Galaxy 2 could feasibly serve as a Nova introduction.

  1. Namor? Who owns the rights to him?

    • Universal

      • Marvel has Namor but there are some problems to iron out with old contracts.

  2. Ideas for Spider-Man reboot.

    Origin is told in the opening credits like The Incredible Hulk, then story picks up after Peter has been Spider-Man for a year.

    Peter has an internship working for Dr. Otto Octavious at Oscorp along with Gwen Stacy and Harry Osborn.

    Dr. Octavious is trying to create a new element.

    Dr. Octavious’s four armed harness earns his the derogatory nickname Dr. Octopus around work.

    One day Peter forgets his backpack at the lab. Later Peter goes back to the lab as Spider-Man to retrieve it.

    Later that same day Dr. Octavious is fired, on the way out he notices Peter forgot his backpack, but just leaves it, he bumps into Adrian Toomes who has also been fired, Toomes informs him that their funds have been diverted into some top secret project of Norman Osborn’s, Toomes complains that Osborn has comandeered his flight suit prototype.

    That night Octavious breaks into the lab intent on taking his research for himself.
    He sees Spider-Man taking the backpack. But Spidey is gone before he can react.
    Octavious puts his harness on, tries to retrieve his prototype element but a massive explosion happens that destroys the lab and fuses the harness to his body.

    He wakes up in the hospital months later, now insane and calling himself Doctor Octopus he kills his doctors, and then goes after the people he blames for his predicament namely Spider-Man and Norman Osborn.

    Final battle takes place at Oscorp, Norman Osborn flees into his lab, Doc Ock follows, we see the glider in the background along with a large container labeled Globulin Green, Ock throws Osborn into the container which breaks releasing fumes which Osborn inhales and falls unconscious. Spidey defeats Ock.

    Post-Credit Scene

    Norman Osborn lying in bed, starts laughing manically.

    • Sounds good to me.Now all you’ve got to do is get Marvel to dig it too.

  3. If I’m not mistaken in Age of Ultron one of the locations they visit will be South Africa. So it would be awesome if in the after credits scenes we see an Ultron bot escape into the African jungle and moments later a clawed hand coming out of the foliage a crushes it. Which in my opinion is a nice way to tease Black Panther withot having an actor at the moment.

  4. Antman Comic Con poster revealed http://insidemovies.ew.com/2014/07/23/ant-man-comic-con-concept-art/

  5. Any chance Marvel does something of a “Sinister Six” impression and has a movie titled “Thanos?”

  6. I agree with MS MARVEL and believe that her movie should actually come in 2016 (tie into with the cree empire that’s been introduced in agents and now about to be in guardians.) She is a very important hero and needs to do introduced i believe. I agree with the NOVA because of the tie ins it will have with the galaxy stories and the guardians. BLACK PANTHER i think could be a good one if made properly, the technology that is within wakanda is so unique that ultron may go there, that’s possible. Another Possibility of a solo BLACK WIDOW movie, but i think that BW should have a tie in movie with the BP (or another char) and work with him as they introduce the BP with a familiar character, plus expand on the BW background so you can she more of she went through in the past and what maybe is not yet resolved. ( OR i think it would be awesome to have a black widow movie that has a tie in the twins. introduce scarlet witch and quicksilver in this tie in because it could help expand on the two characters backgrounds as well after avengers 2, giving them the chance to do something with black widow to possibly join the avengers then? but no solo for the twins.). if anything i think the fourth movie that would be awesome to see up there would be explaining the INHUMANS and get them into this universe to help back up the new origins of the twins. The 5th movie they should bring in is a HULK movie that is also a split (since they don’t want to do a solo for him anytime soon.) He would work in a movie with the guardians really well, (esp after the rumors of avengers 2). but to me PLANET HULK would be so awesome to happen after avengers 2. these are just some of my thoughts on possibilities.
    no order: 1) MS. MARVEL (cree empire tie ins recently with agents and guardians.)
    2) NOVA (the tie ins with the galaxy and others.)
    3) BLACK WIDOW/ BLACK PANTHER split (tie in with other char like Black Widow.)
    4) INHUMANS (explain twins backgrounds more as well as introduce others.)
    5) HULK tie in with OTHERS (guardians would make sense, but hoping somehow for PLANET HULK.

  7. I been asking for Black Panther for years now!

  8. Deadpool needs a movie as he would be the ultimate anti-hero for the Marvel universe

    • I have said this a million times and I will keep saying, Deadpool’s film rights don’t belong to Marvel they belong to 20th Century Fox so Deadpool is not and cannot be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

  9. Let me answer those wishes.



    Ok you’re right we need spidey franchise to continue

  10. Spiderman MUST return to Marvel now!
