Marvel Studios Sets Start Dates For Two Anticipated Superhero Movies

Marvel is currently filming the first part of Avengers: Infinity War which will be the beginning of the end of the current phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, before we reach the end of that phase, Marvel has a couple other movies to make. It now appears that we have start dates for the two Marvel movies that will take place in between the two Avengers movies, Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel. The former is looking to go before the camera this summer, while the latter is looking to start filming early in 2018.

Paul Rudd as Ant-Man

The details on Ant-Man and the Wasp beginning filming this summer, specifically July 6, 2017, comes from My Entertainment World who lists the start date along with the location of Atlanta, GA, which would be Pinewood Studios, the location that most Marvel films have used, if they're filming in the United States at least. It makes sense that the movie would be looking to start filming soon. Ant-Man and the Wasp will be the next film out of the gate for Marvel following Avengers: Infinity War, coming out only two months after the massive team-up movie. This will give the film about a year from the start of filming to release, which is pretty standard for Marvel's current schedule.

Following Ant-Man and the Wasp, will be Marvel's most under wraps project so far. My Entertainment World is reporting that Captain Marvel will be taking its turn in front of the camera just after the new year, starting on January 8, 2018. Filming will also be taking place at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta.

While Brie Larson was officially announced in the lead role during last year's San Diego Comic-Con, there isn't much else that we know about Marvel's first female-led superhero movie. The project is still without a director, at least one that we know about, and we have no idea exactly what the film will be about. The fact that the movie is set between the two big Avengers films would seem to imply that the character will be very important to the end of phase four, but ultimately that's just speculation.

While we're still a long way off on both of these movies, seeing them with start dates makes them feel that much closer. A year from now we'll be looking forward to the release of Avengers: Infinity War while Captain Marvel's filming is underway. With three different MCU movies to keep us company this year, hopefully, the time will just fly by.
