Marvel fans lined up outside Hollywood's El Capitan Theatre before sunrise earlier this week to hear the latest news on the superhero film front. In their Phase 3 event, the studio announced their latest slate of movies through 2019, and fans went wild. This was quite a different scene than when Warner Bros quietly revealed upcoming the DC Comics films in a presentation to investors earlier this month. Some biggest news coming out of the Marvel event is that they'll be the first to have a superhero of color with Black Panther, played by Chadwick Boseman, in 2017. That's the same year Warner Bros will have Wonder Woman. Marvel won't have a female-led superhero film until Captain Marvel in 2018. While that may seem like a lot of superhero movies, the field is only going to get more saturated. Starting in 2017, Marvel will release three superhero movies a year.
