‘The Avengers 3’: Marvel Eyes a 2018 Release Date

By July 31, 2014

It looks like we may be seeing The Avengers 3 in May of 2018, as opposed to the recently reported July 6 and November 2 possibilities. As we mentioned right at the beginning of the San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel added a May 4, 2018 release date to their list of upcoming films. Marvel President Kevin Feige seems to be supporting the speculation that this is the date the film will hit. He told Comic Book Resources the following:

Well, we haven’t really talked about what we’d see Avengers 3. I presume we’d like to stick to three years between Avengers movies like we did [between the first and second]. So it will probably be three years between Avengers 2 and Avengers 3.

He was also asked about whether or not there was pressure to increase the number of films Marvel puts out a year.

Well, I think if you look at some of those dates that we’ve announced, we’re going to three in a few of those years. Again, not because there’s a number cruncher telling us to go to three, do more than two pictures a year, but because of the very reason just laid out: It is about managing those franchises, film to film, and when we have a team ready to go, why tell them to go away for four years just because we don’t have a slot? We’d rather find a way to keep that going.

As we reported earlier, Marvel announced these release dates for their upcoming films:

Guardians of the Galaxy, August 1st, 2014
Avengers: Age of Ultron, May 1st, 2015
Ant-Man, July 17th, 2015
Captain America 3, May 6th, 2016
Untitled, July 8th, 2016
Untitled, May 5th, 2017
Guardians of the Galaxy 2, July 28, 2017
Untitled, November 3, 2017
Untitled, July 6, 2018
Untitled, November 2, 2018

May has been the Avengers month so far and it looks like this is still going to be the case. Are any of those films going to be Ms. Marvel? Anyone else hoping we get news once the after-credits scene in Guardians of the Galaxy is revealed? Let us know your thoughts below.
