So by now you’ve probably already heard that the highly-anticipated lineup of movies dubbed Marvel Phase 3 has been anounced.  Apologies for not sharing this news sooner, it’s just been a little hectic lately!

Marvel Phase 3 Announcement: Marvel's Avengers Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2

I first found out about the announcement while we were driving home from the restaurant a couple of weeks ago.  I am fairly certainly that the people driving next to us probably thought I was having a medical event, because I was bouncing around and gesturing wildly as I read the news on my phone (don’t worry, hubby was driving).  I kept scrolling and scrolling – the lineup is massive – and punctuated what I was reading with an “Oh my gosh!” and “You’re not going to believe who is in this?!”.

Marvel Phase 3

Without further ado, let me get to the list so you can be excited, too.  Here are all the announced titles now through 2019!!

  • 5/1/15 – AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON
  • 7/17/15 – ANT-MAN
  • 5/6/16 – CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR
  • 11/4/16 – DOCTOR STRANGE
  • 5/5/17 – GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2 (previously dated 7/28/17)
  • 7/28/17 – THOR: RAGNAROK
  • 11/3/17 – BLACK PANTHER
  • 5/4/18 – AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR PART I
  • 7/6/18 – CAPTAIN MARVEL
  • 11/2/18 – INHUMANS
  • 5/3/19 – AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR PART II

These titles will join the 10 Marvel films that have already been released (Iron Man was the first in 2008).  Every single one has opened at #1 and collectively have grossed over $7.1 billion globally.  So, you know, a few people saw them.

Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) and Chris Evans (Captain America) were in attendance for the Marvel Phase 3 announcements

Two of Marvel’s films – The Avengers and Iron Man 3 – set records as the #1 and #2 domestic openings of all time with $207.4 million and $174.1 million respectively.  The Avengers went on to become the 3rd biggest film of all time worldwide, while Iron Man 3 ranks as the sixth biggest film ever.

Earlier this year Captain America: The Winter Soldier broke the April opening domestic record with $95 million then went on to earn $714 million worldwide; it’s the #5 film of 2014.  Most recently, Guardians of the Galaxy crossed $757 million globally after opening with a domestic August record of $94.3 million.  It is the #1 film of the year domestically and the #3 film worldwide.

Clearly, Marvel and Disney know how to do super heroes.
