It is almost March and that means a lot of good news is headed for Marvel fans. For one, Captain Marvel releases on March 8. To make things sweeter, that film will be followed by Avengers: Endgame, the final edition of Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Two back to back films of epic proportions are enough to satiate any fan. However, there is a slight hitch that not many noticed. It turns out that Marvel Studios doesn’t have any other film releasing until mid-2020!
A tweet by Robert Liefeld, the co-creator of Deadpool, observed the oversight. You might argue that Spider-Man: Far From Home is the third Marvel movie of 2019. However, there’s something we must keep in mind. While Spider-Man: Far From Home is a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the film is actually made by Sony, and not Marvel Studios. The next film from Marvel Studios is scheduled for a release on May 1, 2020. As per Collider, Marvel hasn’t officially revealed the release date for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3, but with May 1 being booked for a Marvel release, many expect the film to be launched on that date.
Unless there are announcements made for any releases before May 1, 2020, we can safely say there’ll be no Marvel films for over a year. That’s a bit of a break from tradition since the company usually released two films in a year since the MCU began in 2008, with the release of Iron Man. 2018 saw a slight change as Marvel released three films - Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Ant-Man and the Wasp. The delay in releasing more films could be because Marvel’s brass needs to think of new ideas as Phase 3 concludes with Avengers: Endgame.
