Marvel Announces Several New Movies and Release Dates
Marvel Studios has announced its new phase of superhero movies, including pics for the Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, and Inhumans, at a major fan event in Hollywood on Tuesday.
The superhero powerhouse also revealed that “The Avengers 3″ will be broken up into two films, called “Avengers: Infinity War,” set for May 4, 2018 and May 3, 2019.
Chadwick Boseman will play T’Challa, otherwise known as superhero Black Panther, and appeared onstage alongside “Captain America: Civil War” stars Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr.
Kevin Feige also unveiled the title of “Thor: Ragnarok.”
“When we have information to reveal, we reveal it. Sometimes it’s on a random Tuesday at 11 a.m.,” he told the audience at El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.
Feige said Marvel wanted to make the announcement at Comic-Con but the deals were not done.
Benedict Cumberbatch, who is in talks to play Doctor Strange, did not make an appearance.
“If it was confirmed, we would have announced it today,” Feige said.
Marvel later revealed concept art for the Black Panther, which will open Nov. 3, 2017. Boseman, the film’s star, recently played James Brown in the music biopic “Get On Up.”
