Confused as to what movie is coming out when? We've got you covered.
Avengers: Infinity War 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.
Hope van Dyne/The Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) will finally suit up as a hero in her own right for the followup to Ant-Man, which will once again be directed by Peyton Reed and star Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man. It's almost certain the film will further explore the quantum realm — which we briefly saw in Ant-Man and in which Hank Pym's (Michael Douglas) wife Janet van Dyne was lost years ago. Janet will be introduced to the MCU with Michelle Pfeiffer playing the classic hero, and Laurence Fishburne playing Bill Foster (who in the comics has taken up the mantle of several heroes, including Giant-Man).
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.
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 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.
James Gunn will return to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which does not yet have a release date, though the filmmaker has stated it will be in 2020. He says it will conclude the story of this group of Guardians, so don't expect Star-Lord and Groot to necessarily be hanging out after it. Gunn, on the other hand, plans on sticking around the MCU following the movie to help continue to shepherd its cosmic stories.
