You have years of Marvel movie magic ahead of you. Here’s the lineup.
Marvel Studios has spent the better part of a decade building up its cinematic universe, to the point where it can now support two or three interconnected sequels and spinoff movies each year. With the first generation of heroes gradually making way for new characters like Black Panther and Doctor Strange, we’ve put together a timeline of everything we know about Marvel’s upcoming movies.
Marvel Movie Release Dates
Spider-Man: Homecoming, July 7, 2017
Although the film rights to Spider-Man still belong to Sony, the studio partnered with Marvel for the latest reboot. Young actor Tom Holland wowed audiences with his debut appearance as Peter Parker in Captain America: Civil War, and Robert Downey Jr. returns the favor with a supporting role in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Co-starring Zendaya as Peter’s friend Michelle, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, and The Grand Budapest Hotel‘s Tony Revolori as Flash Thompson, this movie is intended as a fresh, diverse reboot of a franchise that (dare we say it) had previously outstayed its welcome in the public eye.
Thor: Ragnarok, Nov. 3, 2017
The Thor trilogy concludes with the apocalyptically titled Thor: Ragnarok. With Natalie Portman moving on from the franchise, Creed‘s Tessa Thompson plays the new female lead, Valkyrie, with Cate Blanchett as the antagonist Hela.
The casting for this movie is pretty wild, actually. Thor franchise veterans like Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, and Anthony Hopkins are joined by Mark Ruffalo (who described Ragnarok as an “intergalactic buddy road movie” between Thor and the Hulk), Jeff Goldblum as an alien elder named the Grandmaster, and Star Trek’s Karl Urban as the muscular supervillain Skurge.
Black Panther, Feb. 16, 2018
