Marvel Cinematic Universe is such an amazing franchise possessing unlimited potential. Each and every movie is connected with one other in such a brilliant way. Iron Man (2008), The Incredible Hulk (2008), Iron Man 2 (2010), Thor (2011), Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) and The Avengers (2012) were the phase 1 movies. Iron Man 3 (2013), Thor: The Dark World (2013), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), The Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) and Ant-Man (2015) were the phase 2 movies. Now let’s have a look at upcoming marvel movies: phase 3 (Captain America: Civil War (2016) and Doctor Strange (2016) are phase 3 movies and they were already released)
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is written and directed by James Gunn. Peter Quill and the gang (Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Groot, and Rocket) will be returning once again for an adventurous fun ride. Nebula and Yondu will be coming back and we would be able to see the introduction of some of the new characters including Mantis and Star-Lord’s father. The movie will hit the screens on May 5, 2017.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is directed by Jon Watts. The young and charming Tom Holland will be reprising the role of Spider-Man and he was first introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in this year’s Captain America: Civil War. His very first solo movie will hit the screens on July 7, 2017, and let’s hope that the movie will be entertaining as the director and writers promised.
Thor: Ragnarok is directed by Taika Waititi. Even though, Thor and The Hulk were present in Avengers: Age of Ultron, we really missed them in Captain America: Civil War. We are fortunate enough as they will be returning to phase 3 and we would be able to see the Green Monster and the Asgardian Prince joining hands together for an adventure in the Thor: Ragnarok, which will hit the screens on November 3, 2017.
Black Panther is directed by Ryan Coogler and it will be the very first Marvel movie in which a black superhero will play the lead role. Black Panther was first introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War. Nothing much regarding the story plot of the movie is available so far as it is still in the early phase of development. Chadwick Boseman will reprise the role of Black Panther and the movie will hit the screens on February 16, 2018.
Avengers: Infinity War
Avengers: Infinity War is directed by the Russo brothers (Anthony Russo and Joe Russo). Since the story is too long, The Avengers: Infinity War will be split into two parts and the untitled sequel will only release in the year 2019. The narrative part of the movie will be a tougher job as it will feature every character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Avengers: Infinity War will hit the screens on May 4, 2018.
