What New Marvel Movies Are Coming Out?
Four new Marvel movies are coming out in 2010 and 2011. All of them are Avengers-related.
First up is Iron Man 2 in May of 2010. Scarlett Johansson stars alongside Mickey Rourke and Robert Downey Jr..
Fans of Marvel movies will have to wait almost a year for another film, but the wait will be worth it. May of 2011 offers The Avengers by Louis Laterrier. Then we’ll see Thor, directed by none other than Kenneth Branagh, hitting theaters in June of 2011.
Just one month after Thor, The First Avenger : Captain America pops up on the big screen.
Rumor has it that other Marvel projects are in the works, including movies involving Black Panther, Cloak & Dagger, Doctor Strange, Hawkeye, Power Pack and Shang-Chi.
Ever since Disney acquired Marvel, people have been wondering if that means that Pixar will be making Marvel movies any time soon. This seems unlikely, as Pixar’s lineup has always been original material. In fact, their next three or four films scheduled are either original or sequels to their originals. I doubt we’ll see Pixar’s involvement in the Marvel movies series any time soon.
If you’ve been looking forward to new Marvel films the next two years will be a great time for you. Sure it is a bummer to have to wait until 2011 and get all three movies within three months of each other, but at least you know the movies are coming down the pipe.
