Marvel has never been shy about announcing release dates years in advance to let the fans know they can expect to see their favorite heroes on screen for years to come. With the latest announcement we are covered for the rest of the decade.

In a short statement released yesterday from Marvel, the company announce the dates of five more untitled films with their respective release dates. The added dates are:

  • July 28, 2017
  • November 3, 2017
  • July 6, 2018
  • November 2, 2018
  • May 3, 2019

The two dates in 2017 will bring the total number of Marvel films that year up to three since Marvel has already announced a May 5 release date in that year. Could three Marvel films a year become the norm? Technically, we are seeing three Marvel films release this year with Guardians of the Galaxy and Big Hero 6 still left to arrive in theaters. However, with the current marketing it doesn’t feel like Big Hero 6 is within the Cinematic Universe.

With releases dates in 2018 on July and November, could we see a May release date to be added in late? Marvel seems to like to be the studio to kick off the “blockbuster season” even going as far as placing Captain America: The Winter Soldier in April to beat a heavy May month.

Would I be upset to see Marvel releasing three films a year? Not at all, especially if they stay at the caliber that we have seen from their latest films. What do you think though? Are you happy to know Marvel will be releasing films for another five year?

    I am sure there are still plenty of dollar related reasons not to, but I really enjoy a big movie releasing in the off season. Spreading out the love for the fans is a plus in my mind

    I’m really hoping this means they will show a few more sides of the MCU. I’d love to see something a little less “Superhero” and a little more dark supernatural (Midnight Sons, Werewolf by Night, Man-Thing, etc) as well as something a little ligher and more of a fun all ages film in the MCU. There is a rather diverse library for them to draw from that they could corner the market on just about any style of movie, from action adventure to horror and even comedy to romance.

      How about a Power Pack or Runaways movie for lighter fare?
