Black Panther film now coming out on Black History Month

In case you forget, we now live in a Marvel movie world. The rest — except for maybe the Jurassic World and Star Wars universes — are vying for second best.

Ant Man - Hope van Dyne, Scott Lang and Hank PymMarvel announced the sequel to its surprise summer hit “Ant-Man” today and we’ll be seeing “Ant-Man and The Wasp” on July 6, 2018.

Marvel also revealed we’ll be getting Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther much earlier than expected. The film starring the first black superhero will be coming out fittingly on Feb. 16, 2018 instead of the original July 6 date. Just in time for Black History Month.

Captain MarvelThe reshuffling does push back one film as now Captain Marvel is coming out March 8, 2019 instead of November 2, 2018.

Marvel has three new films that have not yet been announced slated for May 1, 2020, July 10, 2020 and November 6, 2020.  I know that sounds far away, but with this escalating comic book movie war between Marvel and DC, the next five years are going to fly by.
