Marvel Lays Out Timeline for Phase Three, You May Now Bow Down To Your Cinematic Overlords

Nine more films and details announced through 2019

With an event that seemed like a scene out of a comic book movie itself, Marvel Studios delivered the insane details of their next batch of films today, and they are truly not messing around. Known appropriately as Phase Three (dramatic much?), nine new major projects were formally introduced with release dates covering the next five years.

Phase Two is already well under way (with only Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man remaining to be released in that series), but with this updated timeline, the framing of Marvel’s grand scheme is really starting to take shape.
