Superhero Movies Release Schedule: This is What The Next Few Years Of Your Life Looks Like [Infographic]
For anyone who remembers the days when just one Spider-Man movie seemed an impossible dream, the above infographic is an astonishing representation of how comic book superheroes now dominate popular entertainment. ComicsAlliance’s own graphics maestro Dylan Todd put together this timeline that reveals what the next six years of superhero movies look like, with some dates and titles still to be announced. The graphic will be updated as new information is released.
The latest additions to the timeline include a date for Gambit, starring Channing Tatum in the title role, and a revised release date for Fantastic Four 2, both from 20th Century Fox. The dates and titles for Sony's various Spider-Man projects are likely to be updated some time in the coming months.
Warner Bros. announcement in October 2014 of ten upcoming movies based on DC Comics properties neatly fills in a calendar of dates that the studio previously provided — and help flesh out an extraordinary timetable of DC and Marvel superhero movies over the next six years from Warner Bros, Marvel Studios, Fox, and Sony Columbia.
Marvel Studios added significant changes to the timeline on October 28, when the company confirmed no fewer than eight titles and release dates for films including a Black Panther movie in 2017, starring Chadwick Boseman; Captain Marvel and Inhumans movies in 2018, and a two-part Avengers: Infinity War movie spanning 2018 and 2019.
Doctor Strange’s November release date marks a change from Marvel’s previously announced plan to release a movie in July 2016, suggesting that the studio thinks it needs more time to make the movie. This leaves 2016 without a summer Marvel Studios movie. Stay strong, chums.
