Just a week after Walt Disney Pictures and Marvel Studios revealed release dates for two mystery projects in 2016 and 2017, a new update has set a third mystery Marvel film for release on July 8, 2016.
This past May saw the release of Iron Man 3 and the official launch of “Phase Two” of the ongoing Marvel Cinematic Universe. On November 8, the universe continues with Thor: The Dark World and, in 2014, we’ll get Captain America: The Winter Soldier on April 4 and Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1. Marvel’s The Avengers 2 then concludes Phase Two on May 1, 2015 with “Phase Three” launching later that year when Ant-Man hits theaters November 6.
The current 2016 lineup calls for the first mystery Marvel entry on May 6 with the just announced project following two months later. A third unknown Marvel project has already been targeted for May 5, 2017.
It has been hinted in the past that Marvel has plans for new characters in Phase Three like Doctor Strange and The Black Panther. Either of those could take on these future release dates as could a Marvel’s The Avengers 3 (likely for 2017), another sequel to an existing film or even a completely new surprise. Only time will tell, so check back for updates as they become available.
