Reblog: Marvel Studios Announces "Captain Marvel," "Black Panther," "Avengers: Infinity War" - Comic Book Resources

Avengers Excuse me while I freak the fuck out!

I am absolutely amazed and astonished by this uncanny news report of all-new Marvel movies coming up over the next few years.

Check out Comic Book Resources full report:

Marvel Studios Announces "Captain Marvel," "Black Panther," "Avengers: Infinity War" - Comic Book Resources.

It's hard to believe that Avengers: Age of Ultron is coming out soon, and yet it still feels so far away... That trailer blew me away and has become a frequent source of viewing since it released last week. I'm definitely looking forward to more footage during tonight's episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Here's a quick rundown of what's coming up, according to CBR, with Ant-Man official kicking off Phase III.

  • Avengers: Age of Ultron - May 1, 2015
  • Ant-Man - July 17, 2015
  • Captain America: Civil War - May 6, 2016
  • Doctor Strange - Nov. 4, 2016
  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2 - May 5, 2017
  • Thor: Ragnarok - July 28, 2017
  • Black Panther - Nov. 3, 2017
  • Captain Marvel - July 6, 2018

I really cannot express how tremendously excited I am by all of this. I'm ridiculously happy to see Carol Danvers finally getting her big-screen dues in the Captain Marvel movie, but, damn it, not until 2018.

I'm also really curious to see how Infinity War plays out. Captain Marvel could be the bridge that helps connect the intergalactic adventures from the Guardians movies to the rest of the Earth-based MCU. And with Marvel's propensity to borrow from recent story-lines, as with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, I'm wondering how much Hickman's epic war story, Infinity, will serve as a basis for the Avengers two-parter. Especially given the prominence of Black Panther in that comic's pages and as a member of the New Avengers. And, can I just say, an Avengers two-parter?!?!?!?!?! Wow. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes to all of this.

There's just so much to absorb here, and even more to speculate, wonder, and day-dream about. Maybe even a little too much.
