Like we said, Marvel Movies are dominating the market when it comes to Superhero movies, so CelebNMovies247.com has the latest update on the Marvel films Release Dates for 2018 – 2019. Find out which movies are hitting theaters in 2018 and 2019…
While the major movies are winding down and X-Men and Wolverine franchises have come to the last installment, there are new heroes to fall in love with since some were introduced in the final Captain America movie, like the new Spider Man and Black Panther.
Which leads us to the first Superhero Marvel Movies for 2018. Now these movies could still change, but this is the most current and up to date list of films for the Marvel Cinematic Universe below:
Release Date: February 16, 2018
Director: Ryan Coogler
Cast: Chadwick Boseman
What We Know So Far: The comics character will make his first appearance in Captain America: Civil War, but he gets his own feature film not long after. 42 star Chadwick Boseman will be filling the role of the powerful native of Wakanda, an African nation that is isolated from the rest of the world. Marvel says the crux of the film will be how this isolationist nation meets the world, so expect some friction. Selma director Ava DuVernay came close to signing on, but ultimately opted not to helm the film over concerns her artistic voice would be lost in the final product. Subsequently, Marvel hired Joe Robert Cole—who came up through the Marvel Studios writing program—to pen the script, and finally nabbed Creed and Fruitvale Station helmer Ryan Coogler to fill the director’s chair.
Release Date: March 23, 2018
Director: Seth Grahame-Smith
Cast: Ezra Miller
What We Know So Far: Miller will first make an appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and will likely be part of the Justice League Part One ensemble. And after tasking Phil Lord and Chris Miller with penning a treatment only to see them head off to direct the Han Solo Star Wars film, the studio subsequently tapped Seth Grahame-Smith to make his directorial debut on the superhero picture. Grahame-Smith penned the novels Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, as well as the screenplays for Vampire Hunter and Dark Shadows, but he’s only directed a couple of episodes of an MTV series before. Warner Bros. was no doubt impressed with his work as a producer on the LEGO Batman film, but landing the job of writer and director The Flash is a huge vote of confidence.
Release Date: May 4, 2018
Directors: Joe and Anthony Russo
What We Know So Far: Marvel is finally tackling the Infinity War storyline, and it’ll take two films to tell it. The main antagonist will be Thanos (played by Josh Brolin), and the movie will no doubt unite many, many characters from the MCU. Moreover, Marvel adds that Avengers: Infinity War Part I is the beginning of the culmination of everything that has come before. Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War directors Joe and Anthony Russo have been tapped to direct both parts of Infinity War, which will be shot at the same time during one long production beginning in late 2016. Moreover, they’ll shoot the entire movie using IMAX’s brand new digital cameras, meaning the whole film will be shot in IMAX. This two-part epic has been described as “the end of the Avengers team as we know it,” acting as a culmination of everything Marvel Studios had done since Iron Man. No pressure.
Release Date: July 6, 2018
Director: Peyton Reed
Cast: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lily, and Michael Douglas.
What We Know So Far: Nothing, beyond a title and release date. But the title suggests that Evangeline Lily’s Wasp will be the co-star of this film and not just the “female lead”, making this Marvel Studios’ first release in which the heroine is in the title.
Release Date: July 13, 2018
What We Know So Far: 20th Century Fox hasn’t confirmed what this film is just yet, but it’s probably the X-Men spinoff New Mutants that Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars) is attached to write and direct after he completes The Stand. Simon Kinberg and Lauren Schuler Donner are producing.
Release Date: July 20, 2018
What We Know So Far: Phil Lord and Chris Miller are writing the treatment and producing this movie, but since they’re now knee-deep in developing their next directorial effort—the young Han Solo Star Wars movie—they likely won’t be too involved in this once a director comes onboard. It’s still unclear how this film fits in with Sony and Marvel’s standalone live-action film, but upon announcing it, Fox made clear that it exists “independently” of the live-action franchise. Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Amy Pascal are producing.
Release Date: July 27, 2018
Director: James Wan
Cast: Jason Momoa
What We Know So Far: Momoa will first make an appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and will likely be part of the Justice League Part One ensemble. Warner Bros. has enlisted Furious 7 and The Conjuring helmer James Wan to direct.
Release Date: March 8, 2019
What We Know So Far: Marvel’s first female-led superhero film will revolve around the most powerful character in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. This iteration of Captain Marvel will focus on the character of Carol Danvers, whose adventures are earthbound but whose powers are based in the cosmic realm. Joss Whedon wanted to introduced the character at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, but Marvel didn’t want to bring Captain Marvel into the MCU fully formed without first telling her origin story. Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) and Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) are writing the screenplay.
Release Date: April 5, 2019
Cast: Dwayne Johnson
What We Know So Far: Making his superhero movie debut, Dwayne Johnson opted to take on the role of the villainous Black Adam in this DC comics adaptation.
Release Date: May 3, 2019
Directors: Joe and Anthony Russo
What We Know So Far: The conclusion to the epic Infinity War storyline will close out Marvel’s ambitious Phase Three with a bang.
Release Date: June 14, 2019
Director: Zack Snyder
Cast: Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Amy Adams.
What We Know So Far: As with Part One, the only confirmed cast members are Cavill, Affleck, and Adams, but we can expect to see the rest of the DC ensemble appear in the second half of Justice League. Brainiac is rumored to be the villain, but it’s unclear if his reign of terror will continue through Part Two or if he’ll be vanquished in Part One. Rumor has it that Warner Bros. plans to introduce Darkseid as the Big Bad after Brainiac, with Green Lantern popping up to warn the Justice League team of his existence. This will likely happen either at the end of Part One as a teaser for Part Two, or at the end of Part Two as a teaser for some future Justice League film.
Release Date: July 12, 2019
What We Know So Far: Another comic property that will push the reach of the Marvel Cinematic Universe further outward, Inhumans will introduce dozens of new characters to the MCU. In the comics, they are a race of superhumans whose origins lie in the war between the alien Skrull and Kree races. The existence of Inhumans has been first introduced on ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
