The Marvel movie lineup promises to bring years of superhero stories with the official Marvel movie schedule. Here’s what we know is coming to the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe).
Marvel Movie Lineup | Marvel Movie Schedule
2018 was the year of Marvel movies, with the Marvel movie lineup delivering three blockbuster movies.
The Marvel movie schedule was packed!
We started off in Wakanda with Black Panther, were shell-shocked with Avengers: Infinity War, and gasped way too loudly at the end scene of Ant-Man and the Wasp. You know the one I’m talking about!
I’m still trying to process all that transpired.
The roller coaster ride of 2018 continues on with more Marvel movies on the horizon for 2019 and beyond.
Here’s the Marvel movie lineup for 2019 and a hint to what we can expect from the Marvel movie schedule in the years to come.
Minor spoilers in this post: I’m not going into detailed plot points, but I am assuming you’ve been online and read or seen a few important scenes!
2019 Marvel Movie Lineup
The good news: we’re getting three new movies to our list of Marvel movies in 2019.
Even better news? It’s happening NOW!
Captain Marvel is in theaters now and breaking box office records. Higher, Further, Faster Baby!
But it’s not all about 2019- there’s more to come to the MCU in 2020 and beyond. I’ll update as more information comes out (because they have to start teasing us with 2020 soon, right? Right!)
Captain Marvel | March 8, 2019
Up first in the Marvel movies list for 2019 is Captain Marvel. And this one brings all the nostalgia for those of us raised in the early 90s.
That’s the Xennial generation (Gen X plus Millenials- holla!).
Academy Award winner Brie Larson joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe- dropping in, so to speak, as Captain Marvel aka Carol Danvers.
She’s one badass superhero and I am geeking out over this movie- it’s good, y’all! You can read my Captain Marvel Parent Movie Guide to decide if you should take your kids to join the Carol Corps.
Captain Marvel has been part of The Avengers over the years and most recently she showed up in the ending credit of Avengers: Infinity War.
For those that weren’t familiar with her symbol, that’s what Nick Fury’s last moments were all about: sending a distress signal to Captain Marvel.
Captain Marvel is rumored to be the most powerful superhero in the MCU, and based on the ending of Avengers: Infinity War, she’s going to show up just in time!
At least, I hope she shows up in time (or back in time? With the Time Stone in play, who knows?!).
We now know that Captain Marvel is going to change the universe and we. cannot. wait!
Side note: when we interviewed Samuel L. Jackson during the Incredibles 2 Event, he couldn’t say enough great things about his friend, Brie Larson.
And their buddy chemistry is strong in this one!
Avengers: Endgame | April 26, 2019
I ask you: can anything be more mindblowing than Avengers: Infinity War?
How about wrapping up that cliffhanger ending where half the universe is gone in a snap? Because that’s what we hope to see with Avengers: Endgame.
The release date, title
This Avengers: Endgame trailer is not giving a lot away- and it’s kinda killing me to wait! I know I’m in good company on this one.
Spider-Man: Far From Home | July 5, 2019
Like I said before, there are three new MCU movies in 2019. But one isn’t Marvel Studios. But it’s still MCU.
Sigh, I know, it’s complicated.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is MCU but not Marvel Studios exactly. Sony is in charge of this one.
Studio frienemies maybe?
I dunno- it’s weird. But we are counting Spider-Man for sure!
After going through a few actors, I hope Tom Holland sticks around because he’s my favorite Spider-Man.
In fact, he pretty much made Spider-Man a top 5 superhero for me.
After Infinity War and his scene-stealing moments, you know I can’t wait to see Spider-Man: Far From Home since it’s the last of the 2019 Marvel movies.
It has also been confirmed that the action of Far From Home picks up just after the ending of Avengers: Endgame. So that should give Spider-Man lovers who were devastated in Infinity War a little hope.
I’m also seeing news that Nick Fury and Maria Hill are major figures in Far From Home, which would be fantastic (and again gives some hints to reversals of some dustings anyway) but… I don’t want to swear this is the case just yet.
Future Marvel Movie Schedule
Now we venture into a bit of the unknown.
We know there is a Marvel Phase 4 happening (See Spider-Man: Far From Home) and we know at least 5 movies that have been confirmed in this phase.
But we have no idea what the next big story arc is going to be- though we can guess that Avengers: Endgame is going to give us some big hints to the future.
Currently, we only know of 5 films that have been announced. Here’s what we know so far about the next Marvel movies in order.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is the first movie in Phase 4. Opening soon after Avengers: Endgame, this one can get us through to 2020 and the next Marvel movies list!
Marvel Movies List Phase 4 Release Dates
This is the list of dates Marvel set aside for releasing of movies, but nothing has been slotted or announced just yet other than Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Marvel has said they would hold off releasing titles until after Avengers: Endgame to keep from too many spoilers. But some news has gotten out surrounding casting and directors, so we know a few things are in the works.
We just don’t know which movie will go where on the dates given.
But if you like to plan your cinema-going dates in advance, here you go!
Marvel Phase 4 Release Dates
May 1, 2020 – thought to be reserved for Guardians 3, but that is most likely pushed back now. Maybe Black Widow?
July 31, 2020
November 6, 2020
February 12, 2021
May 7, 2021
November 5, 2021
February 18, 2022
May 6, 2022
July 29, 2022
I’ll update this list as we learn more, but here’s what has been officially confirmed.
Rumors and Casting Information
• Spider-Man: Far From Home July 5, 2019- CONFIRMED
• Black Panther 2 *Feb or May 2021?
Announced in October 2018, Ryan Coogler is back at the head of this one, writing and directing Black Panther 2.
And all of Wakanda cheered!
Rumored dates: production in late 2019/early 2020 with an opening in 2021.
Is T’Challa back? Let’s hope so. But we have to wait until Avengers: Endgame to find that out!
• Black Widow
All we know about this one is the director. Cate Shorthand was annoucned as the Black Widow director in July 2018… and that’s it!
• Doctor Strange 2
I hope people are on board with more Doctor Strange after the role he played in Infinity War.
This dude is prime Marvel superhero material– and I can’t get enough of him! Looking forward to hearing where his story arc will go after Avengers 4.
• Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
We think, anyway. Guardians of the Galaxy was greenlit— but then it wasn’t— but now… it’s back on with original writer/director James Gunn back at the helm.
Latest rumor also says Zac Efron in the role of Adam Warlock. Y’ALL: I’m gonna need this to happen. I know, I know not a popular opinion, but Zac is a sorely underrated actor.
- Venom 2
- The Eternals – recent news says Angelina Jolie is in talks!
- Ms. Marvel
And you gotta consider that Captain Marvel is bound to have a sequel in the works. I mean, you don’t go photon blasting records without someone noticing!
Alright, now that we’ve covered the Marvel movie lineup as well as the Marvel movie schedule coming up, I think we’re ready for whatever the geniuses at Marvel have to throw our way!
I’m a fangirl and I don’t pretend otherwise. Geeking out over pop culture is a big part of My No-Guilt Life, and I’m here to say it’s ok if that’s your thing too! No matter how old you are. Ahem. I’m solidly on #TeamCap and think Iron Man has gotten a bit big for his gold-titanium alloy britches. Oh- and I’m completely in love with Agent Coulson and Agent May. Completely.
