Don’t forget to check out CBR’s Complete DC Movies Release Date Calendar!
Keeping track of movie release dates can be difficult, especially with so many superhero and genre films slated to come out over the next five years. Earlier this week we looked at Warner Bros. slate of DC Comics-based movies through 2020, and now we shift our focus to Marvel Studios and its ambitious schedule of offerings, including “Captain America: Civil War,” “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” and “Black Panther.”
This list is confined solely to Marvel Studios’ Phase Three films and beyond, so we won’t be discussing Fox’s upcoming X-Men slate, which includes “Deadpool,” “X-Men: Apocalypse,” “Gambit” or any future “Fantastic Four” entries.
Captain America: Civil War – May 6, 2016
“Captain America: Civil War” picks up where “Avengers: Age of Ultron” left off, as Steve Rogers leads a new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.” “Captain America: Civil War” is directed by Anthony & Joe Russo, written by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. The film stars Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, and Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man.

Captain Marvel – March 18, 2019
Inhumans – July 12, 2019
While rumors about the demise of “Inhumans,” the final film in Marvel’s Phase 3 arsenal, have been circulating, they have no merit. Clark Gregg recently discussed “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s” Inhumans storyline and said there’s no way their show would interfere with the film. While no official plot, synopsis or cast has been released for “Inhumans,” it’s likely Black Bolt, Medusa, Crystal, Maximus, and more will make their MCU debut.
Marvel has also reserved the following dates for three unnamed films: May 1, 2020, July 10, 2020 and November 6 2020. These could be placeholders for any number of sequels, including “Guardians 3,” “Spider-Man 2,” “Black Panther 2” — or something else entirely.
