    It was quite a while ago we heard about the Phase 2 lineup and how it can be assumed the standard will be 5 lead-in/solo films for every Avengers film. Phase 3 is roughly 4 years away which means its about time we started speculating. :p

    Which solo films do you see setting up Avengers 3 in Phase 3? If youre feeling particularly rambunctious, you can even share your thoughts on subtitles. Five seems to be the magic number but try to keep it between 4 and 6. As it is unlikely we will see more or less than that.

    Personally I'd like to see the following:

    (Avengers 2: Ultron Imperative, May 2015)
    Ant-Man (November 2015)

    Captain America 3: Man Out of Time (May 2016)
    Doctor Strange (November 2016)
    Thor 3: Flames of Surtur (April/May 2017)
    Black Panther (August 2017)

    Avengers 3 part 1: Thanos Quest (May 2018)
    Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel (November 2018)

    Guardians of the Galaxy: War of Kings (May 2019)
    Avengers 3 part 2: Infinity Gauntlet (November 2019)

    2020 and beyond:
    Planet Hulk/World War Hulk
    sequels to GotG, Black Panther, Doctor Strange
    Namor the Submariner, Silver Surfer, The Inhumans, The Defenders
    IM, Cap, Thor reboots?

    I can't really imagine a Ms Marvel movie (What would it be about? Who would be the characters?) but I could see Black Panther.

    So hopefully my Phase 3 would be like...

    Cap 3
    Iron Man 4
    Thor 3
    Incredible Hulk 2: Planet Hulk
    Black Panther
    The Inhumans

    and then in the world of television (but still in continuity with the Marvel Universe)

    Shield season 7
    She Hulk
    Daredevil maybe?

    2014 will be Marvel's first 3 film year. Feige once said the hope was to get up to 4 films, so I opted to give 2017 4.


    2016:

    The Incredible Hulk 2- Summer
    Iron Man 4- Summer
    Thor: Ragnarok- Fall

    2017:

    Black Panther- Spring
    Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty- Summer
    Guardians of the Galaxy: War of Kings- Summer
    Doctor Strange- Fall

    2018:

    Avengers 3 Pt 1- Summer
    Avengers 3 Pt 2- Winter

    Please, go on.

    My sincerest apologies. :csad: But just think of all the potential thread necromancy, my Lord. :D

    BTW, I was this close to using Thor: Journey Into Mystery as well. thats a cool title fosho.

    Everyone's doing it this days, and when you consider that A3 wouldn't just be the closing of a trilogy, but the end (or at least the biggest event) in a film series counting 20 tent poles, it should be suitably epic.

    oh most definitely. I'm surprised it hasn't even crossed my mind. It seems quite likely to happen. I'd say both in one year is slightly far fetched, but its not like Marvel/Disney is above taking risks with this franchise. What a great year that would be.

    That's right :woot:

    Yeah, i remember somebody wondering why Thor 2 didn't have that subtitle so i wondered that maybe it would be cool for the 3rd film or any Thor film for that matter.

    It's probably going to close this "story arc", but i doubt Marvel will reboot after that, they said they were planing for this to go like the James Bond films, so after that i think that the most they will do is recasting many of the roles and go into a new direction.

    Exactly. I actually think? Later franchises will be the glue that keeps the MCU together from generation to generation.

    For example, when The Avengers 3 ends, depending on the status of TIH2 Mark Ruffalo will still have 2-3 more films on his contract (Unless they cameo him.) The Guardians of the Galaxy actors will likely have 3 films left, Whoever winds up playing Doctor Strange will likely have films left on his contract.

    Basically I see a transitional block of films in the late 10's early 20's, Involving new properties, sequels to phase 2 and 3 properties, and maybe a surprise return to the marvel camp (Fantastic 4?) before they recast the big 3 Avengers.

    Marvel Studios can't just stop making movies. They're a film company and that's what they do.

    I think Avengers will be a solid trilogy, 4 if you count a two-parter (damm thats a cool idea.) but after that it might be put on the back burner a while. Make a bunch of character movies that take people's minds off of RDJ and Tom Hiddleston and whoever else blows us away in the next 6 years.

    They may have been thinking very long term when they wanted Galactus/Surfer back. I mean, after Avengers 3, if you pile together some new names (Strange, Namor or Fantastic Four) you practically got a whole new MCU for a while. Until they find a worthy successor to the core four.

    - Ms. Marvel, Spider-Woman, Brand, Quake vs Skrulls
    Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty, August 2016
    - Viper and all sorts of HYDRA fun, Super Adaptoids and etcetera
    Iron Man 4/War Machine, October 2016
    - Depending on RDJ, Rhodes may take a bigger role, fight Ghost/Titanium Man
    Dr. Strange, May 2017

    Thor 3: Ragnarok, August 2017
    - Ymir, Surtur, Loki, the whole nine
    Planet Hulk, November 2017
    - Planet Hulk, basically
    Heroes for Hire, April 2018
    - Iron Fist and Luke Cage origins,
    Avengers 3, May 2018
    - Infinity Gauntlet/Thanos Finale, lots of big stuff happening
    Phase III Ends, New Avengers are set up if Classic Avengers don't renew contracts/can't be recast

    Give new heroes May releases, hit hard off the success of Avengers 2, pull back to hit hard again with Avengers 3. That's 8 movies in between as oppose to Phase I's 5, or Phase II's 5.

    I dont know - it really sounds like its Phase II - Part one, which really is Phase III depending how you look at it. I just hope we can make it to Part two, wait how much does a Phase equal? and,,,,,,where the hell am I?

    P.S. They really do need to get Black Panther rolling,,, the pink one sucked (way too much comedy if you ask me)

    lol? If the thread was unclear, it's purely hypothetical speculation regarding the idea that each Avengers film will be led in by series' of films dubbed "phases."

    Phase 1 being Iron Man (2008) through Avengers (2012)
    Phase 2 being Iron Man 3 (2013) through Avengers 2 (2015)
    and Phase 3 being __________________ whatever comes next.

    As far as I know there was no official word on when Phase 2 will be finished or what makes a 'Phase' a 'Phase'. Phases could also refer to meta plots (like the 'birth' of the MCU, the arrival of superheroes culminating in the foundation of the Avengers in Phase 1) and those meta plots don't necessarily have to end with every Avenger movie. We don't know anything of the meta plot of Phase 2 yet. We only saw a glimpse of Thanos, which could mean anything...
