With the release of this summer's Ant-Man, Marvel wrapped up Phase 2 of its cinematic offerings. However, the diminutive hero's box office success ($ 410 million, globally) has warranted an encore, shaking up Marvel's cinematic roadmap in the process.
As Ant-Man’s ending message stated, Scott Lang will indeed return – only this time, Wasp is in tow. The film’s sequel, Ant-Man and The Wasp, is in the works, and is scheduled to premier on July 6, 2018. Due to the new Ant-Man movie, two Phase 3 films have shifted release dates. Black Panther moves from its original July 6, 2018 release to an earlier February 16, 2018. Conversely, Captain Marvel, once scheduled for November 2, 2018, now premieres the following year, March 8, 2019.
Release plans for the remaining Phase 3 films seem unaffected for now. Marvel also revealed three unannounced projects slated for the following dates: May 1, 2020, July 10, 2020, and November 6, 2020.
