At a major fan event at the El Capitan Theater, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has revealed the films that will make up Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including pics for the Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, and Inhumans. Feige also unveiled the title of Thor: Ragnarok:

  Captain America: Civil War will hit theaters on May 6, 2016.

•  Doctor Strange will arrive on November 4, 2016.

•  Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is due on May 5, 2017.

•  Inhumans is coming on November 2, 2018.

•  Avengers: Infinity War – Part I arrives on May 4, 2018 followed by Part II on May 3, 2019!!!

Wow! Black Panther and Captain Marvel on the big screen finally!

Chadwick Boseman, best known for his roles in 42 and Get On Up, will play T’challa / Black Panther. Boseman appeared onstage alongside Captain America: Civil War stars Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr.

Benedict Cumberbatch, who is in talks to play Doctor Strange, did not make an appearance.

A Carol Danvers Captain Marvel will be the first Marvel Cinematic Universe film with the lead superhero being female. Although a standalone Black Widow film starring Scarlett Johansson has been rumored, Feige said the reason it hasn’t happened is “because she’s so good working with the Avengers and says that the Hulk is, at the moment, the same way.”

As far as the long-rumored Runaways movie that just isn’t ready yet.

But the long-rumored Inhumans (not The Inhumans) is in the works, and is scheduled to hit theaters the same year as Captain Marvel:

“November 3, 2018 will introduce dozens of characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe,” Feige said. “We really do believe the Inhumans can be a franchise or a series of franchise unto themselves. They have dozens of powers and an amazing social structure. With our 20th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we wanted to continue to refine what that universe is about.”

Joe Robert Cole has reportedly turned in a screenplay for the Inhumans who’ve been known to join forces with other Marvel heroic groups such as Fantastic Four, Avengers and the X-Men.
