“Avengers: Infinity War” may signal changes for the Marvel Cinematic Universe going forward, but it’s far from the end of the line for the franchise.
Marvel Studios has scheduled nine release dates from 2020 to 2022 for as-yet-unannounced movies.
One of the dates in 2020 – though we don’t know which – has been confirmed to be a sequel. There’s one other MCU movie coming this year and three more in 2019.
That’s five confirmed MCU movies coming in the next two years.
Here are the five confirmed Marvel Cinematic Universe movies after “Infinity War.”
“Ant-Man and the Wasp”
- Marvel Studios
Release date: July 6
“Ant-Man and the Wasp” will be the third and final MCU movie this year (following “Black Panther” and “Avengers: Infinity War”).
It takes place between the events of “Captain America: Civil War” and “Infinity War,” so it will give no insight into the aftermath of the most recent movie.
- Marvel Comics
Release date: March 8, 2019
“Captain Marvel” will take place in the 1990s, so it is also set before “Infinity War.” But it will detail how Nick Fury knows Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), who is likely to play an important role in the “Infinity War” sequel.
Untitled fourth “Avengers” movie
Release date: May 3, 2019
Audiences have to wait a whole year before they learn what happens after the shocking end of “Infinity War.”
A new title for the film, which was introduced as “Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2,” hasn’t been announced. (We probably won’t know it for a while, as it’s apparently a spoiler.)
Untitled “Spider-Man: Homecoming” sequel
Release date: July 5, 2019
The director Jon Watts is returning for the “Homecoming” sequel next year. There’s not much known aside from that, as the film is likely to hinge on what happens in the “Infinity War” sequel.
“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3”
Release date: Confirmed for 2020
“Vol. 3” might premiere on May 1, July 31, or November 6.
