More Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Ant-Man & the Wasp artwork has been revealed thanks to a Marvel calendar for 2018. Thanks to the combination of Lucasfilm, Marvel, and more, Disney won 2017 at the domestic box office. The Last Jedi will hit $1 billion this weekend, closing out a year that saw Beauty and the Beast, Coco, and three Marvel movies dominate theaters (though Spider-Man: Homecoming's profits landed with Sony). There's no telling if all of Disney's ventures next year will pan out, but they'll likely do just fine.
Avengers: Infinity War may well become Marvel's biggest film to date at the box office. The Infinity War trailer broke all sorts of records and Thanos is the most-anticipated villain of 2018. As we wait for a full-length trailer for the film, images and promotional items have been pouring in. Yesterday, we saw an image of Thor and the Guardians from the movie. Now, some new artwork brings even more of the heroes together.
MCU Tweets has gotten their hands on a Russian calendar promoting next year's Marvel films. In it, we see new art for Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Ant-Man & the Wasp, with the team-up film pulling together four of the Guardians, a number of key Avengers, and Doctor Strange.
While we got a number of interesting team-ups in the first Avengers: Infinity War trailer, we've yet to see Earth's Mightiest Heroes share the same space as the Guardians. Luckily, promo art has been scratching that itch while we wait for something more concrete. Yesterday, an Infinity War t-shirt brought together more of the heroes, including Black Panther. Here, he gets his own calendar page in preparation for his movie in February.
So far, Infinity War and Black Panther top 2018's most anticipated films, while the Ant-Man sequel has gotten lost in the shuffle. Putting the latter just two months after the biggest blockbuster of all time is a risky bet, but hopefully fans will still be eager to see more Marvel in theaters when Ant-Man & the Wasp arrives. And given that both heroes were absent from the trailer for Infinity War, fans of the shrinking duo will need to catch the film to see them in action next year.
Marvel had a big 2017, but it's hard to argue that 2018 is poised to be even more monumental in terms of scope and box office success. Even if everyone's favorite insect-themed Marvel heroes can't hold a candle to the competition, Ant-Man & the Wasp will surely do well and give the MCU a boost alongside Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War.
