As far as movie brands go, there are few bigger in the industry than Marvel Comics. With the comic powerhouse's characters split up between the Disney-owned Marvel Studios, as well as Sony and 20th Century Fox's respective holdings, there are a whole lot of superheros making their way to the big screen. In fact, thanks to some newly announced-yet untitled Marvel projects from Fox, we can now expect to see a total of 24 titles coming out between now and the end of 2021. Check out the full list - with titles in chronological order - below!
This list is updated with the most recent information that we've obtained, as Fox has staked claim to six new release release dates for untitled films between 2019 and 2021, according to Exhibitor Relations. This is even further out than the Marvel Cinematic Universe has planned out, with its furthest title out being the untitled follow-up to Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is slated for July 5, 2019. More importantly, it looks like Fox is fully committing to the three movies per year model that Marvel Studios is putting into effect for the first time in 2017. Of course, it should be noted that they are already going to three titles per year in 2018, with Deadpool 2, New Mutants, and X-Men: Dark Phoenix all coming out in the next calendar year. But this just commits the studio to more firepower in their comic canon.
Of course, these are release date announcements, no projects, so one has to wonder what properties could possibly fill the 10 untitled slots that Fox has staked a claim in for the next few years. Right out of the gate, we can assume that at least one Deadpool sequel will be greenlighted in that span, which means that we can definitely count on Deadpool 3 as one of the titles (not to mention X-Force). At least another two films could be dedicated to continuing the run of the main X-Men franchise, as well as a possible sequel to the New Mutants spin-off that's moving into production now. There are also still plans to move forward with Gambit, and if they're getting really desperate for projects, it isn't totally impossible that they could try something new with the Fantastic Four once the world enters into the third decade of the 21st century.
It is certainly interesting that while Marvel Studios and Sony have made most of their plans for the future rather clear, Fox is still playing things close to the vest and doesn't seem willing to fully commit to any particular project yet - just release dates. Of course, Marvel Studios is still in the same boat after the untitled Avengers 4, and we can probably assume that Sony will try and expand their special Spider-Man universe in those years as well, provided the experiment works when it's launched in 2018 with Venom starring Tom Hardy.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is the next film to bring the world of Marvel Comics to life, as its set to debut next Thursday in early screenings. Which Marvel movie are you most anticipating? Hit the comments section below with your thoughts.
