Sigh* You understand whenever you write a chunk predicting an event, but generally you decide not to publish it. But then it seems that your prediction was right and in case you’d had just printed your piece, you possibly can have regarded like an individual with an amazing energy of foresight!
Well that is just about what occurred regarding the variety of Marvel movies per 12 months. In actual fact the two following paragraphs I wrote in April 2014 (However did not publish).
In the previous part (which you can read right here) I made it so far as 2020. The rationale I stopped is as a result of I feel by 2021 (or possibly as early as 2019) Marvel will enhance their film output to three films a year. Kevin Feige has said several occasions in interviews that the original plan was to eventually scale the output as much as 4 films a year.
Although these interviews have been again in 2009, I see no purpose why that plan couldn’t nonetheless be in place. Almost definitely the primary film can be launched in mid-April to early Could, the second in late-July to early August, and the third in early to mid-November.
Certain, I was off by a couple of years, however I nonetheless had the right concept!
So I’m going to place my next prediction at first of this piece. I still believe Marvel wish to find yourself having 4 releases a year. Since 2013 – 2016 have 2 films launched per yr, I believe a roughly related time interval may have three films a 12 months; 2017-2020/2021. From 2021/2022 onwards, I consider Marvel will probably be releasing four films a 12 months.
Like I point out within the unpublished paragraph, I believe one film might be released in mid-April to early Could, one other in late-July to early August, and another in early to mid-November. The fourth (or if you want, first) can be released in early to mid Feb. While it is doable that the fourth movie will likely be released in Dec-Jan, I don’t imagine this is true as long as Star Wars holds a Christmas release date.
Now earlier than I proceed with my predictions, I simply need to touch upon a small mistake I made regarding the Infinity stones. I used to be below the impression that the Aether from Thor: The Dark World was the power Stone. Nonetheless, I’ve now seen Guardians of the Galaxy (Nice movie by the way!); and Feige has indicated that the stone held by Ronan The Accuser (Marvel character) is in fact the ability Stone.
From watching what the Aether did, I discover it arduous to assign one other type of stone to it. I have to conclude that the Aether is a very new stone that is not part of the common six. (Maybe one thing like the Ego Stone or Desire Stone)
Now let’s recap. My 1st try at guessing what the upcoming movies were:
Could 1 2015: The Avengers: Age of Ultron (Already was confirmed)
July 17 2015: Ant-Man (Already was confirmed)
Might 6 2016: Captain America three (Already was confirmed)
July eight 2016: Doctor Unusual
Might 2017: Thor three
November 2017: Captain Marvel
Might 2018: Guardians of the Galaxy 2
November 2018: Avengers three
May 2019: Black Panther
November 2019: Captain Marvel 2 or Ant-Man 2
Might 2020: Captain America 4
November 2020: The Warriors Three
Up to now I’ve made 2 correct predictions (Well, one and a half). That Doctor Unusual would be the second movie out in 2016 and that there would be a Guardians of the Galaxy 2 before Avenges 3. Nevertheless, now that I’ve truly seen Guardians of the Galaxy; and with the release of extra info and launch dates, my predictions do want some adjustments.
Every thing as much as Physician Strange in 2016 has been confirmed, so I’ll continue from there.
Might 5 2017 (Date confirmed): Thor three
See part one for thoughts on attainable plot particulars
July 27 2017 (Date and film confirmed): Guardians of the Galaxy 2
See half one for thoughts on doable plot particulars
Nonetheless, for those who read half one you may see that I originally thought this may lead instantly into Avengers 3. Whereas I’m not a hundred% on this anymore, I do imagine that this film will explore Peter’s relationship together with his father, introduce the Time Stone and can by some means finish with the Guardians both heading to Earth or on it. In addition, I’m very confident that Thanos will likely be the main villian right here. Also, I feel that Adam Warlock is unlikely to get a stand alone film, so he will most likely be introduced in this film (Bet you it’s as Peter’s father!)
November 3 2017 (Date Confirmed): Captain Marvel
See part one for ideas on doable plot details
Could 4th 2018 (Date unconfirmed): Avengers 3
Though Marvel still hasn’t introduced anything for this date, they’ve reserved the primary week of Could from 2012 – 2017 & 2019. I fully anticipate them to do them the same in 2018, Except Disney decides to release a Star Wars movie on that date. May 4th is fairly necessary to the Star Wars neighborhood, and since this will 4th conveniently falls on a Friday, Disney may want to reap the benefits of this advertising opportunity. Additionally see part one for thoughts on possible plot details.
July 6 2018 (Date confirmed): Black Panther
See part one for thoughts on doable plot particulars
November 2 2018 (Date confirmed): Ant-Man 2
With out seeing the first movie, that is a bit bit troublesome to foretell. Nonetheless, as I discussed below the Captain America 3 section in part one, most superhero movies tend to follow a certain sample. Since this is the second film, I suppose the plot would contain something along the lines of Scott Lang either having the Ant-Man suit stolen or possibly losing management of it.
Could three 2019 (Date confirmed): Captain America 4 or Iron Man 4
For those who learn half one, you may see that I assumed this movie would contain Captain America being revealled as Skrull and Bucky would have to hunt him down. I really feel that this needs some revaulating, since Captain America appears to have been extremely critically acclaimed primarily based on that undeniable fact that it was so grounded in actuality. (Effectively, as real as you may make a Superhero film!)
I still believe that Captain America will die in Avengers 3 (alongside Women’s Leia Print Long Sleeve Tee Shirt the Hulk). However considering there has never been a “fourth” superhero movie earlier than, there are no real cliche’s that could be adopted. But perhaps this movie will focus more on Bucky and how he feels as a man out of time making an attempt to dwell as much as the legend of his finest pal.
Nevertheless, if the film seems to be Iron Man four, I do suppose that Robert Downey, Jr. (actor) will return, but in a a lot reduced position/double crew with Rhodey as Iron Patriot.
All dates after this point are unconfirmed
July/August 2019: Nova/Nova Corps
I think that Richard Rider might be mentioned in previous film (Like Steven Strange was talked about in the Winter Soldier). But this will just about be an origin story. And hopefully will probably be a ton higher than Inexperienced Lantern (2011 film)!
November 2019: The Warriors Three or 4
See part one for thoughts on potential plot details
May 2020: Iron Man 4 or Captain America 4
Will find yourself being whichever movie did not come out in May 2019
July/August 2020: Physician Strange 2
As mentioned partially one; the primary sequel tends to focus on shedding powers or having them taken away. So I think this film would possibly, ultimately, involve the Battle of the Seven Spheres and Dr Strange being compelled to hand over his powers for the better good.
November 2020: Guardians of the Galaxy 3
My cash’s on an evil model of the Guardians of the Galaxy making an appearence; with possibly an exploration of the war between the Kree and whoever replaces the Skrulls.
Feb 2021: Captain Marvel 2
Approach too early to even guess what the plot could possibly be.
Might 2021: Avengers 4
God know what this is going to be about.
