Title and Date for Ant-Man 2 plus Phase 3 and Phase 4 Release Dates. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has just gotten bigger. Ant-Man 2 will be entitled Ant-Man and the Wasp and will be released on July 6, 2018. Marvel has indicted that Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly will be returning for their respective roles.

Because of the release date for Ant-Man and the Wasp, other Phase 3 films with previously announced release dates have been shifted. Black Panther will now be released on February 16, 2018. Captain Marvel will now be released on March 8, 2019. Neither film currently has a director and only one, Black Panther, has its lead character cast.

We previously published the entirety of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase 3 release dates in this article: Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 3: 2016-2019 Film Slate Released.

Here is a quick run-down:

Captain America: Civil War on May 6, 2016

Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe currently has three occupants, though Marvel is tight-lipped as to the identity of those films at this point. The untitled Marvel films will be released on “May 1, 2020, July 10, 2020, and November 6, 2020.”

What is your guess as to the nature of these three films? Could one of them possibly be another Iron Man film?
