Earlier this month, Marvel announced that Ant-Man would be getting a sequel by way of Ant-Man and the Wasp and it will be hitting theaters in 2018. However, this new addition to Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe means pushing back the Captain Marvel film to 2019.
This is not the first time that Phase 3 has been shifted and it is started to feel like we can’t believe anything in that schedule. The first shift occurred when Sony’s Spider-Man deal with Marvel was announced. That announcement means that Black Panther will move from a July 6, 2018 to a Feb. 16, 2018 release and now Captain Marvel will be released on March 8, 2019 rather than Nov. 2, 2018.
Marvel has also added three untitled films for 2020 on May 1, July 10 and Nov. 6.
Ant-Man and the Wasp will be released July 6, 2018. Ant-Man will next appear in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.
