Schmoesknow.com is posting some rumors about Marvel’s proposed Phase 3 plans. As usual take all of this with a grain of salt.
Case in point, the reveal of what Marvel has in store for Phase 3.
Their source had this to say,
“I can confirm that as of the end of January, Marvel had no plans to make a Guardians 2. Marvel was planning on Guardians being a one and done. So unless they have done a complete 180 in the last couple weeks, I very much doubt there will be a Guardians 2.”
“They only have so many films they can do each year and they don’t want them all to be trilogies to where they’re just dealing with the same handful of characters for the next 5-10 years.”
If that is the case what other characters will Marvel be looking to be exploring in Phase Three?
“The movies that will be part of Phase III for absolute certain are: Ant-Man, Captain America 3, Thor 3, The Avengers 3 and Dr. Strange.”
It is common knowledge that Kevin Feige is a big proponent of getting Dr. Strange to the big screen.
“Feige has pretty much confirmed Dr. Strange for some time now. They really wanted it to be a part of Phase 2 at one point, but like Ant-Man that just didn’t happen. That’s probably the one that Feige is personally rooting for the most and as a result it is the solo film that is the highest priority other than the sequels.”
The source went on to state,
“There has been talk about Black Panther and lots of talk about The Inhumans, they’re in the pipeline but are pretty much in the same boat that Dr. Strange and Ant-Man were in two years ago, where they want them to happen, and they will most likely both happen, but it’s just a question of how soon. However, those five films (Ant-Man, Cap 3, Thor 3, Dr. Strange & Avengers 3) are sure things and I can guarantee you they will all be announced at Comic Con if not sooner.”
Thanks to Schmoesknow.com for the info, we’ll see how this pans out!
