Marvel Announces Latest Slate of Movies

Hosted by

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.
