Marvel expands their Cinematic Universe with five more films


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?
