Marvel had the road mapped out until 2021, but a new deal with Sony Pictures, which will see Spider-Man joining a Marvel film and the co-production of a Spider-Man film, has forced the studio to make some changes.
Spider-Man will appear in an as-yet-unspecified Marvel film before Sony releases the next instalment of the franchise on July 28th, 2017. To avoid competition, Black Panther is being pushed back until July 6th, 2018. This in turn is pushing Captain Marvel back to November 2nd, 2018 and Inhumans back to July 12th, 2019. Better update the diary.
The two-part Avengers: Infinity War movies are staying right where they were. What does change is the films released between the two parts. This may have an impact on the overarching narrative, but at least Marvel has plenty of time to shuffle plot points about.
Here’s the updated list of Marvel releases, including the new Spider-Man film, which it is on board to co-produce. The changed dates are bolded.
