In the wake of Black Panther making history with it’s reception and success, there’s no doubt the suits at Disney are sitting around a table right now trying to interpret what to do next with their plans. Marvel have been pretty quiet about what happens after Infinity War, no doubt in part so’s not to spoil what might happen. Given that Black Panther has just changed everything they knew about their movies, what would you recommend if you had a seat at the table?
Here’s what they have right now:
2017: Logan, Guardians 2, Spider-Man, Thor 3
2018: Black Panther, Infinity War Pt 1, Deadpool 2, Ant Man & Wasp, Venom, X Men Dark Phoenix
2019: New Mutants, Captain Marvel, Infinity War Pt 2, Spider Man 2
2020: Guardians 3
Clearly they have plans they just haven’t released yet. It looks like they’re going to have a 5 movie per year schedule. So what do you think the next few years will look like?
And to help, here’s all their current franchises:
Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Guardians, Ant Man, Black Panther, Dr Strange, Avengers, Captain Marvel, Fantastic Four, X Men, Deadpool, Venom, New Mutants, Wolverine.
Here’s my suggestion to kick things off:
2020: Deadpool 3, Guardians 3, Fantastic Four, Black Widow team up, Dr Strange
2021: Spiderman 3, Black Panther 2, X Men reboot, Hulk & Thor, Captain Marvel 2
2022: Ms Marvel, Avengers, X Force, Wolverine, All new Iron Man
2023: Spiderman 4, Fantastic Four 2, Guardians 4, X Men 2, Black Widow 2
2024: Black Panther 3, All in Marvel event Pt 1, All in Marvel event Pt 2
Essentially I’d take Iron Man and Cap off the table. Get the third Deadpool movie out quickly, introduce the FF first, then the X Men as a reboot of the franchise, give Black Widow her own movie that would feature other women of Marvel, add a Ms Marvel franchise as a female Spier-man type (with the idea of mutants being a thing), create an X Force franchise and then create another Infinity War type event with both parts happening in the same time span.
