If you caught video of that big Marvel event from a couple of weeks back, you may have noticed an image in the background during the presentation of a Phase 3 timeline. It looked pretty awesome, and had all of Marvel's official logos along with release dates for their upcoming phase of films. If you were hoping to get your hands on that image, we've got excellent news, fellow superhero nerd: Marvel has officially released their Phase 3 timeline, so now you can look at it whenever you want.
Just last month when Marvel announced ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ there was an additional little nugget of news/rumor tucked into that surprising reveal: Marvel was eyeing ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ directors Joe and Anthony Russo to helm ‘Avengers: Infinity War.’ That's in addition to their responsibilities directing ‘Civil War.’ As it turns out, the rumors are true, and the Russo brothers are indeed the frontrunners to direct the two-part ‘Infinity War,’ which would also confirm what we've known for some time: Joss Whedon won't be back.
Even though the upcoming third ‘Captain America’ movie is based on Marvel’s ‘Civil War’ mini-series, where the heroes of the Marvel Universe faced off with one another in a battle over their right to privacy, the ‘Civil War’ film still needs a villain for Chris Evans’ Cap and Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man (and new addition Black Panther, played by Chadwick Boseman) to face off with as well. Although they didn’t reveal the identity of his character, Deadline reports that Daniel Bruhl will play the guy to pester the feuding Avengers.

This week, Marvel breaks the internet with its Phase Three announcement, DC prepares a trilogy for Wonder Woman, and Sony plans a really strange Spider-Man spin-off.
During Marvel's major Phase 3 announcement today, the company revealed the official title of the third 'Captain America' film, 'Captain America: Civil War,' thus reiterating that the newest installment would indeed pit Cap against Iron Man and bring Marvel's Civil War storyline to the big screen. But those familiar with that particular story arc might be wondering just how that plot works on the big screen when the superheroes of Marvel's Cinematic Universe don't have secret identities.
As part of Marvel's secret event today that announced pretty much all of Phase 3, the studio announced their first black superhero movie, 'Black Panther.' And, while everyone was expecting Benedict Cumberbatch to walk on stage to confirm his casting in 'Doctor Strange' it was actually '42' star Chadwick Boseman who surprised the crowd by appearing with Kevin Feige to announce his role as T'Challa.
No one knew quite what to expect when Marvel Studios put together a very mysterious press conference, earlier today. But then Marvel honcho Kevin Feige took the stage and proceeded to not waste anyone's time. Are you ready for an eight-film "Phase Three" to follow in the aftermath of 'Avengers 2'? Well, you better be, because they've gone and announced titles and release dates.
Hello, my name is Thanos and I live on a rock in space. These is my blog and these are my thoughts. I’ve recently been seeing a lot of ads for your new Earth movie called ‘Interstellar.’ I hope that your Mathew McConaughey uses a wormhole to find me. Pay no heed, I am no threat to your great McConaughey, I still don’t have any Infinity Stones lol. I would even let your great McConaughey sit in my space chair. I am a big fan of ‘EDtv’ lol.
