Confused as to what movie is coming out when? We've got you covered.


Ant-Man and the Wasp has come and gone, and now you're wondering what's next for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Luckily, we have you covered with this timeline of all the upcoming movies from Phase 3 and beyond. The list will be updated as new release dates are announced.

  • 'Captain Marvel'

    March 8, 2019 

    Brie Larson is going back to the '90s to step into the role of Carol Danvers, who in the comic is a hotshot pilot who gains alien powers after an accident. The film from directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck takes place in the past, which will allow Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) to be part of the movie without the eye patch. Even more intriguing, the villains will be the Skrulls, an alien race with a rich history in the comics. Guardians of the Galaxy co-writer Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve penned the script.

  • Untitled 'Avengers 4'

    The Russo Brothers are directing a fourth Avengers title (previously going by the name Avengers: Infinity War — Part II, but is currently untitled). Here are some hints at what could happen in Avengers 4, based on the comic books that inspired Infinity War.

  • 'Spider-Man: Far from Home'

    Spider-Man: Far From Home will start a new era of Marvel movies following Avengers 4, which Spidey will also be a part of. It will show Tom Holland's Peter Parker moving on following those momentous events, and will also be the first Spider-Man solo movie to take him out of New York to locales such as London.

    "There's still a lot of unexplored territory," Watts has said of keeping Spider-Man in high school for a sequel. "To deal with the fallout of Infinity War and be a junior in high school, I think sounds like a pretty good movie to me."

    Jake Gyllenhaal will play the classic villain Mysterio. 

  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3'

    James Gunn was writing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and just months away from shooting the film for a 2020 release date when Disney fired him after old, offensive tweets were resurfaced. Gunn had envisioned the film as a concluding story for this group of Guardians, but the project was put on hold a month after the firing.

  • 'Black Widow'
