TNT Snags TV Rights to Marvel’s Next Five Films

TNT has signed a deal that grants the cable channel the television rights to Marvel Studios’ next five theatrical releases, beginning with Avengers: Age of Ultron, which opens in May.

The untitled Captain America 3 (May 6, 2016) is the only other film mentioned in the announcement, despite the arrival of Ant-Man on July 17, 2015. Marvel has yet to say what two releases will follow its Winter Soldier sequel — the studio has staked its claim to July 8, 2016, and May 5, 2017 — but the latest rumor pegs Doctor Strange for the former date.

Each of the five will premiere on TNT a little more than two years after its theatrical release.

“Marvel’s brand of entertainment is a thrill ride for audiences, and we’re excited to be adding their next five blockbusters to TNT’s arsenal of high-quality genre fare,” Deborah K. Bradley, Turner Broadcasting’s senior vice president and head of program acquisitions, content strategy and licensing, said in a statement. “These movies will play a key role in TNT’s long-term success, especially among key adult demos.”

Avengers: Age of Ultron opens May 2, 2015. Ant-Man is filming now.
