Marvel Announces May 3rd, 2018 Movie; Could This Be AVENGERS 3?

by     Posted 151 days ago

Last week Marvel announced 5 Untitled Movies with release dates stretching all the way up until May of 2019.  At the time, I guessed that the one bearing the date of May 3rd, 2019 would be Avengers 3 since that franchise’s signature early May release date was missing from the 2018 slate and 2017 seemed just a bit too soon to get everyone together again.

I’m doing away with that theory at this point because Marvel just announced yet another film for May 4th, 2018.  That first week of May is Avengers territory and 2018 is one whole year sooner that the studio gets to trot out their most valuable IP.  It makes sense that they want as few gaps between these things as possible.  So now I’m going to guess that  Avengers 3 hits on May 4th, 2018.  Hit the jump for more on this potential Avengers 3 release date.

avengers-3-release-date-hulk-widowAgain, I could be wrong. It could also hit in 2019, but this 2018 date feels much more timely and in line with the general clip at which Marvel operates.  Also cool?  This gives us one more Marvel movie that could potentially be unveiled this week at the San Diego Comic-Con.

Here’s what the Marvel Release slate looks like now:

  • Guardians Of The Galaxy - 8/1/14
  • Avengers: Age Of Ultron - 5/1/15;
  • Ant-Man - 7/17/2015
  • Captain America 3 - 5/6/2016
  • Marvel Untitled – 7/8/16
  • Marvel Untitled – 5/5/17
  • Marvel Untitled – 7/28/17
  • Marvel Untitled – 11/3/17
  • Marvel Untitled – 7/6/18
  • Marvel Untitled – 11/2/18
  • Marvel Untitled – 5/3/18 (potentially Avengers 3)
  • Marvel Untitled – 5/3/19

There’s no doubt in my mind some of these blank titles will be filled in this week at Comic-Con.  As I mentioned last week I expect that Scott Derrickson‘s upcoming Doctor Strange will fall on one of the previously released dates.  If I were a betting man I’d also put a small amount of money on a Guardians of the Galaxy 2 announcement along with a smattering of standalone films.  What about you?  Do you expect to see Iron Man 4 announced even?

      well see this is what confused me a little when I first heard all the talk of “GOTG definitely will lead into Avengers 3″ stuff… I mean, short of Guardians being a complete bomb, which I really don’t think it will at this point meaning it’ll get its own sequel, just going by how the schedule is currently laid out, is it not unreasonable to think we’d in fact be getting GOTG 2 before Avengers 3? I mean we’re getting G1 almost a full year before A2, so…

      • Bob

        Well, look about what I said. I said or you could switch Avengers 3 with Guardians 2 possibly. So yea, its def possible.

    Maybe Avengers 3 will be the 5/3/18 one and the 5/3/19 could be a big Infinity Gauntlet movie with The Avengers, The Defenders,The Guardians of the Galaxy, and maybe even the Inhumans uniting!

      There are still plenty of pieces Marvel needs to put into play for an Infinity Gauntlet movie.

    Christ, who cares.

      So, basically, you saw a title that says: “Marvel Announces May 3rd, 2018 Movie; Could This Be AVENGERS 3?” and clicked on it and went all the way to the end of the entry so you could comment how much you don’t care?

      • Steven

        Pretty much.

        You have to admit, the whole Marvel thing has jumped the shark. They’e churning out all these movies and most of the recent ones have been filler (except for Cap 2).

        People are now trying to decode what will be released in 2018, 2019 & beyond.

      • Batt Damon

        The Avengers, Iron Man 3 and The Winter Soldier are the three strongest movies Marvel have put out.

      • Poof

        Then why are you here? The rest of us are wasting our time on something we love while you are wasting time on something you hate. We win. Go home.

      • Steven

        Where did I say I hate these films ??

        I loved the first Avengers and most of Phase 1 is excellent. But this money train has gotten way too bloated. Id rather hear about Avengers 2 before the third film.

    wait, “one year sooner it trots out its most valuable IP”?

    The May 3rd slot seemed simply enough to me to be the Avengers one just because that’s three years in between both gaps.

    Avengers (May 2012)

    Avengers: Age Of Ultron (May 2015)

    Avengers: We Finally Kick This Mothafucka Thanos’ Ass!: [With Or Without The Assistance Of A Certain Couple Of... Well, Let's Call Them "Guardians"... Of A Certain... Let's Say, "Galaxy"] (May 2018)

  • Manuel Orozco

    I am so predicting Avengers 3 can get that May 4th spot

  • AverageGamers

    Since we have a May 2018 date, and more than that a May 4th (a throwback to the first movie)… I agree, that must be Avengers 3 (which I initially thought will be the May 2019 one)

    Well, Cap.America is turning 100year’s old inn 2018 (acording to his birthdate in Cap.2), maby the Avenger’s will have a party for him.
    I kinda assumed 2018 for A.3 all along, (seeing as it fit’s the padurne betwin 1 & 2, So was expecting, and hoping for A.3.2018).
    Then agein, maby they got Chris to sign on for C.A.4. after all. There have been talk’s about what contract’s wourld get finishe’d & signed, would detumen what future movie’s will be rewild at SDCC, so. who.knows-

    I think the way its going now, is that Iron Man is primarily only going to be in the Avengers movies that way it can give Marvel Studios time to focus on finishing the trilogies of the Franchises they already created and to introduce future Franchises. My theory on the Release dates follow the whole Avengers movies usually releasing in may and being 3 years apart from each one. and also it follows what Kevin Feige said about releasing one sequel then one fresh franchise. My theory is this:

    The OBVIOUS ones
    Guardians of the Galaxy – 8/1/14
    Avengers: Age of Ultron – 5/1/15
    Ant-Man – 7/17/15
    Captain America 3 – 5/6/16

    Dr. Strange – 7/8/16 (It has already been confirmed for this date)
    Thor 3 – 5/5/17
    Black Panther – 7/28/17 (There have been a few easter eggs in Phase 1 of Wakanda, the home of Black Panther)
    Guardians of The Galaxy 2 – 11/3/17
    Avengers 3 – 5/3/18 (Mainly because they said that in Avengers 2 hulk goes to space and meets the Guardians then which could mean that in Avengers 3 we could see both teams go after Thanos.)
    Ms. Marvel – 7/6/18
    Dr. Strange 2 – 11/2/18 (Being that it would be a sequel and that its actually 2 years apart from the 1st movie seems right.)
    Inhumans – 5/3/19 (Mainly because Kevin Feige himself said that he wants to do an Inhumans movie but the timing has to be right and find the time. Hell since Avengers trilogy would be done what better time to focus on a new team then Inhumans.)

    • Jackson

      Umm, no, Dr. Strange has not been confirmed for 7/8/16 – it just seems obvious, since its the only movie that doesn’t have an official release date, but has a director in place.

  • Guest

    How about

    May 2018: Avengers 3 part 1
    July 2018: Avengers 3 part 2
    August 2018: Marvel officially becomes the richest company on the planet

    Don’t know if splitting the movie is possible with Robert Downey Jr’s contract though.

  • Edgar

    This calendar is wrong why does 7/6/18 come before 5/3/18 shouldn’t it be the other way around meaning that Avengers 3 would come out before 7/6/18 and 11/2/18. Well to me I would prefer avengers 3 coming out 5/3/19 meaning that avengers 3 would go all out against Thanos.
