Your Supermovie Timeline [Infographic]
Last updated November 30, 2016.
For anyone who remembers the days when just one Spider-Man movie seemed an impossible dream, the above infographic is an astonishing representation of how comic book superheroes now dominate popular entertainment. ComicsAlliance’s own graphics maestro Dylan Todd put together this timeline that reveals what the next six years of superhero movies look like, with some dates and titles still to be announced. The graphic will be updated as new information is released.
Recent updates include the removal of Gambit and Fantastic Four 2 from the schedule, and the addition of new Power Rangers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies, an animated Spider-Man movie in July 2018, and two Valiant movies in production at Sony; Bloodshot, for an unconfirmed date in 2017, and Harbinger, for an unknown year. (Sequels to both movies, and a crossover movie called Harbinger Wars, are expected to follow, but we'll keep them off the calendar until the originals have dates. We've also added the confirmed release date for the Lego Batman movie.) The Gambit movie may get bumped to a new date, but that hasn't been confirmed at this time.
Previous changes arose from a deal between Sony and Marvel to tie Spider-Man in to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That meant a new date for the next Spider-Man movie, which will again reboot that series, and revised dates for Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, and Captain Marvel. Some Spider-Man spin-offs have been removed from the calendar entirely, and Sinister Six is now in limbo.
Before that we revised the timeline to include a date for Gambit, starring Channing Tatum in the title role, and a new release date for Fantastic Four 2, both from 20th Century Fox.
Warner Bros. announcement in October 2014 of ten upcoming movies based on DC Comics properties neatly filled in a calendar of dates that the studio previously provided — and helped flesh out an extraordinary timetable of DC and Marvel superhero movies over the next six years from Warner Bros, Marvel Studios, Fox, and Sony.
Marvel Studios added significant changes to the timeline on October 28 2014, when the company confirmed no fewer than eight titles and release dates for films including a Black Panther movie starring Chadwick Boseman; Captain Marvel, and a two-part Avengers: Infinity War movie spanning 2018 and 2019. Stay strong, chums.
