You can't stop the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The next movie won't be out until November 8, 2013 when Thor: The Dark World is released. We know Captain America: The Winter Soldier is due on April 4 and, of course, The Avengers 2 on May 2, 2015. Today they have announced the dates for two more.

Disney has laid claim to May 6, 2016 and May 5, 2017. And that's all we know.

Now, some may be asking, what's the big deal? Why tell us just the dates if there's no other information? Movie release dates isn't as simple as it seems. There's a whole process. Studios are vying for the prime summer release dates. Often when a studio claims a spot with a major release, the other studios will respect that or simply not want to compete with another big blockbuster. The fact that Disney/Marvel Studios is already calling dibs on the first weekend of May suggests they have something big planned. They're not going to release a movie with a...lesser known character that can't carry the burden of that weekend.

So now we have to wait. While we're waiting, we can speculate. Guardians of the Galaxy will be released on August 1, 2014. With the casting news amping up, perhaps they might plan on a sequel for one of those dates, depending on how the first does. Avengers 3 in 2017? There are lots of other characters we'd like to see but you would think they want these dates for the bigger releases, not for a movie starring Moon Knight or Nova (two I'd love to see happen).

What are your thoughts. What big Marvel movie could be released on these dates?

moon knight would be awesome! But probably a bit too Dark Knighty?

#2 Posted by Bigwalt (61 posts) - - Show Bio

I think Ant-Man is November 2015 as well

#3 Posted by Namor1987 (1890 posts) - - Show Bio

avengers 3 for 2016 & War Machine; Heroes For Hire; or Dr Strange for 2017

2017 has to be Avengers 3. 2016 must be Dr. Strange or something...wasn't a Dr. Strange movie already announced? But no released date was announced for it...so maybe its 2016? *shrug*

#6 Edited by Bigwalt (61 posts) - - Show Bio

Ill say Iron Man 4 for May 2016 and Thor 3 for 2017

I want Daredevil, but it's probably too soon.

#8 Posted by RoboShark (1282 posts) - - Show Bio

Moon Knight would be so great to see.

New Hulk with Ruffalo and maybe Doctor Strange? I feel like they'll wait a while for another Iron Man but who knows!

Black Widow solo movie?

....

*weeps*

#13 Posted by wisesonAC (162 posts) - - Show Bio

can Black Panther just get a little love?

#14 Posted by LordRequiem (1323 posts) - - Show Bio

And so everyone states what they want to happen but not what actually will.

2016 and 17 are a long way off, an Avengers third movie is possible. But what else I cannot say.

#15 Edited by LifePool (137 posts) - - Show Bio

Uhh, Deadpool movie?

#16 Edited by GraniteSoldier (8589 posts) - - Show Bio

Isn't Venom slated for 2016? Or was that 2015? Perhaps they're already announcing the planned date for ASM 3?

Anyway I'd love to see a Nova movie.

Don't forget Big Hero 6! I am really looking forward to it lol

The 2016 date is definitely Thor 3. The 2017 could be the Hulk.

^^^

I think Marvel should let Iron Man lay low after Avengers 2 until people start to demand a new Iron Man that isn't RDJ. After Thor 3 and Cap 3, do the same with those characters. Then introduce new characters and let the universe evolve. Bring on Ant-Man, Black Panther, Ms. Marvel, Dr. Strange, and Namor. Let them get big, then let the cycle continue.

Do we really need another straight white male guys? Especially one that rips off Green Lantern?

#23 Edited by Reignmaker (2235 posts) - - Show Bio

Nice timing, Disney/Marvel. Just in time for Man of Steel. It would mean more if you gave us the subject matter though.

yes since green lantern movie bombed at the theatres, might as well steal their thunder

#26 Edited by Protoflash (139 posts) - - Show Bio

Im thinkin black panther or doctor strange and ant man/wasp

#27 Posted by Trevel8182 (754 posts) - - Show Bio

@protoflash: Ant-Man & Wasp are coming in 2015 right after Avenger 2

#28 Posted by ScarletBatman (366 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm thinking Iron Man 4 and Avengers 3.

#29 Posted by wmwadeii (3250 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd say another Hulk movie, and since they got Daredevil back maybe a decent remake of it. Could also be a possible placeholder if GotG does well for a sequel.

#30 Edited by ScarletBatman (366 posts) - - Show Bio

Do we know for a fact that these dates were reserved by Marvel? Because if it was just Disney, these dates could be saved for Star Wars.

I'm surprised Sony didn't take the May 2017 slot for Spidey 3. Keep the 10 year gap between movies. Guess it will be like ASM and come out in like July or something if it does come out 2017. But I'm thinking these are Doctor Strange and Captain America. Avengers 3 for 2018.

Last I heard, Doctor Strange is going to be a lower budget film. Lower Budgets can't anchor such a good weekend.

I'd be deeply disappointed if Marvel makes a Moon Knight movie and/or Nova flick before Black Panther. I'm already disappointed that we're getting Ant-Man, and possibly Doctor Strange, before T'challa.

#35 Posted by SideburnGuru (1338 posts) - - Show Bio

@queenfrost_ If we ever get a Black Widow movie, it'll probably be with Hawkeye on the side. So, Hawkeye and Black Widow : The movie. Or something of the sort.

Personally, I'm waiting for..



MAKE IT HAPPEN MARVEL. MAKE IT HAPPEN.

O yeah, forgot about that one. Those dates seem reasonable for an animated film release. Plus it's going to be a family movie if I'm not mistaken.

Really? Huh, I'd expect Doc Strange to be a big budget film, maybe not more that good of a weekend, more like August. But still lower budget, that's surprising.

There's no way Disney will allow a rampaging murderer be apart of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. :(

T'Challa and Daredevil, however, seem like prime candidates.

#45 Posted by The Mast (790 posts) - - Show Bio

They can integrate Daredevil/Matt without him even having a movie. Have a quick teaser scene during one of the movies and put it in Nelson & Murdock. Simple.

Also, that's your Dr. Strange covered.

#46 Posted by BiteMe-Fanboy (8048 posts) - - Show Bio

It's probably going to be Dr. Strange and Antman.
