Marvel's Phase 3 films apparently locked
Doctor Strange is set to happen, Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 isn't, according to new reports about Marvel's phase three of movies...
Speculation has been rife as to just which movies Marvel will schedule into phase three of its cinematic universe. Whilst Ant-Man is known, and both Captain America 3 and Thor 3 are expected to slot in there, there's been chat of standalone Hulk, Doctor Strange and Black Widow movies as part of the build-up to The Avengers 3.
Now, the folks over at SchmoesKnow, a site with a good track record on its rumours, reckon they've got the concrete line-up for Marvel's phase three. And it says the films in question are, "for absolute certain", Ant-Man, Captain America 3, Thor 3, The Avengers 3 and Doctor Strange.
To be fair, that's pretty much the line-up everyone's expecting and it'd take the studio up to 2018. That would leave the rumoured sequel to Guardians Of The Galaxy at least four years away its seems (although the report says this is a film that Marvel has no plans to make right now), as well as other mooted projects such as Black Panther and The Inhumans.
Our guess is that Captain America 3 and Thor 3 would wrap up those particular lines of movies, and it might just be that phase four is where we get at least three new standalone lines of films. We wait and see.
Marvel's next film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, arrives in cinemas next month.
