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). Updated to add Black Panther 2 Release Date!
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 2020/2021 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 got some great Marvel movies in 2019.
Captain Marvel rocked it! Higher, Further, Faster Baby!
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.
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.
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.
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.

UPDATED August 24, 2019
• Black Panther 2 on May 6, 2022
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!
This one has been confirmed to be on the way and finally has a release date.
T’Challa is back as we learned from Endgame.
• 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.
Kevin Feige confirmed this movie is on the way at San Diego Comic-Con but no release date was given.
- Venom 2
- Ms. Marvel- release date 2021 on Disney+
- Captain Marvel 2
Captain Marvel 2 was confirmed at SDCC as well.
In addition, he said that Fantastic Four is on the way, more X-Men are on the way, and so is Blade.
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!
