Brace yourself! We're getting close to the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Well, this iteration of the MCU, at least. While Marvel Studios has no plans to end its 10 year run of success with 2019's Avengers 4, that doesn't mean things will stay the same after it.
In fact, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said as much in a recent interview with Vanity Fair, where he dropped clues regarding the future of the MCU. Feige said the studio is “22 movies in, and we’ve got another 20 movies on the docket that are completely different from anything that’s come before -- intentionally." That's right folks, we've got at least 20 more films starring our favorite superheroes to look forward to!
With Avengers 4 bringing Phases One through Three to a fitting close, Phase Four and beyond will obviously look to establish new heroes as some familiar faces most likely walk off into the sunset. At least, we hope they're still walking and not left dead after Avengers 4's final showdown with the Mad Titan Thanos.
So what are the next 20 Marvel movies we have to look forward to? A large number of them will be sequels to ongoing franchises, but a few should introduce those new heroes we mentioned above. Below is a list of 20 films that we feel have a pretty good shot at making their way to the big screen, along with dates Marvel Studios has already laid claim to, and the decision to debut three films a year.
2019 Marvel Movies Post-Avengers 4
Spider-Man: Homecoming Sequel - July 5th, 2019
Feige already revealed the first film to follow Avengers 4 in 2019 will be the sequel to this year's Spider-Man: Homecoming, with a release date of July 5, 2019. That's not the only Spidey news, however; Homecoming producer Amy Pascal said the sequel “will start a few minutes after Avengers 4 wraps as a story.”
Marvel Studios understands how important Spider-Man is to its fans, and will look for him to lead the charge into its future. Anyone looking for the first glimpse of what the MCU will look like post-Avengers 4 will have no choice but to check out this film. Plus, after being hinted at in Spider-Man: Homecoming, we could finally get our first look at other Spider-Man supporting characters like Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy (more on them later).
