Every upcoming Marvel movie and TV show

If it's confirmed or rumored, it's on this list.


Captain Marvel is the next MCU film. Coming to theaters March 8.

Marvel Studios

The Marvel Cinematic Universe, or MCU, is the most successful film franchise of all time. And despite the fact that Marvel Studios will soon release its 21st film, 2019 could eclipse last year in terms not only box of office take, but cultural impact as well. Although, it will be difficult for anything to match the impact Black Panther had in 2018. 

Here are the three Marvel Cinematic Universe movies coming out this year and how each is expected to stand out:

  • Captain Marvel on March 8 (Marvel's first female-led full-length film with its first female co-director)
  • Avengers: Endgame on April 26 (The *real* culmination of a decade-plus building of its MCU storyline over 22 films.)
  • Spider-Man: Far from Home on July 5 (The first glimpse at what a post-Avengers: Endgame MCU will look like with the returning cast from the very successful first outing.)

That's what we know for sure. What we don't know yet is exactly coming after the next Spider-Man movie, as Marvel has yet to officially announce its next slate. We know the dates the next few Marvel Studios films will debut, but not which films will be attached to those dates. 

Over the last few months however, reputable Hollywood sites like Variety, Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter have begun reporting on not only the next few MCU films we could see, but -- thanks to the forthcoming Disney+ streaming service  -- some of the new MCU TV shows as well.

Now, these new TV shows will be set apart of what we've seen previously. Earlier MCU shows like the Netflix shows, and ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. were and are produced by Marvel TV, under the tutelage of Executive Vice President and Head of Television, Jeph Loeb. And were never referenced by the movies.


Far From Home apparently begins minutes after Avengers: Endgame, umm, ends.

In a shift, Disney+'s series will reportedly be overseen by Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and will have larger budgets than what is typically allocated for television shows.

With all of that in mind, here's what we expect over the next few years, both rumored and confirmed. You'll notice that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 isn't listed below. That's because it's been put on hold. Once a director is announced, we'll add it to the list. And we'll be sure to keep this list updated as things change:



It's still unclear whether the Black Widow movie will be a prequel or sequel.

Despite all the success Marvel Studios has achieved, I'm still amazed that we're getting a Vision and Scarlett Witch TV show.

Bucky and Falcon

Take this one with a grain of salt, but as a person who fell in love with the Hawkeye character around the time he joined The Thunderbolts in the comics, I'd love to see this happen.
