Marvel’s Phase 3 Is Revealed

The news is in, at Disney’s El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, Marvel announced what the next films up until 2019 will be in their Cinematic Universe. Be warned Marvel fans, you will be excited.

So we already know that the avengers sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron, will sign off Marvel’s phase 2 in 2015, and Ant-Man will kick-off phase 3, also in 2015. Just like Iron man had his own third film, so will Captain America and Thor in 2016 and 2017. With the Captain America sequel being called ‘Civil War’ is it possible that we may be seeing one of the greatest comic book story lines of all time brought to the screen, let’s hope so.

James Gunn is once again going to bring the Guardians of the Galaxy to the screen in a 2017 sequel, whereas James Gunn’s GOTG took the Marvel Universe into space themes, 2016’s Doctor Strange film will take it into the magic and parallel universe side of things.

As the list continues, we are finally going to see an African-American crusader have their own solo film with Black Panther in 2017, and we will also get a female avenger in her own solo film; Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel. The third avengers film will be the all out brawl between our heroes and the almighty Thanos, it will be split into two films and the second will finish off phase 3. We will also get another super group as well in the Inhumans film, with all these heroes together it is looking to be an action-packed next five years.

Benedict Cumberbatch to play Doctor Strange

So Marvel are finally in end talks as to who is going to play the amazing sorcerer supreme: Doctor Steven Strange. It is going to be none other than charming, British, velvity-toned Benedict Cumberbatch. Many of you may remember him from his previous role as the villainous Khan in 2013s Star Trek: Into Darkness or in his modern day Sherlock Holmes portrayal in BBC’s Sherlock.

Now that Marvel have introduced their main characters for the Avengers team, and have also given most of them a second and third film to develop their personalities, they can begin to bring forward the lesser known individuals who also fought along side these caped-crusaders in the original comics. Arguably, some of the best avengers are still yet to be introduced, one of which is Doctor Strange, who is a skilled neurosurgeon and practising magician, and has saved the world on more than one occasion.

At the moment the Doctor Strange film is looking at a 2016 release date. Marvel are also getting ready to unveil more of their best avengers: Ant-Man in 2015 and the animal like Black Panther from Wakanda. The Black Panther film however is still quite far off, with its release possibly being in 2017, along with Black Widow’s solo film which could be in the same year.
