With Disney and Marvel having three mystery projects set for May 6th, 2016, July 8th, 2016 and May 5th, 2017, fans have long speculated what character/characters these “Phase 3″ films will focus on. While the three dates could be for a sequel for an ongoing property – or even a solo movie for Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk, the likes of Doctor Strange and Black Panther have previously been rumored to be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Today, THR bring word that the May 6th, 2016, date is for ‘Captain America 3.’ This news closely follows a report that the ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ directors Anthony and Joe Russo are currently in negotiations with Marvel to helm the third film with the pair also putting together an outline on a potential plot for the film.
Marvel Studios and Disney claimed the date first before Warner Bros. Pictures slotted the pushed back ‘Batman vs Superman’ from 2015 to the same May berth. This would undoubtedly create the biggest superhero box office showdown in history. Shooting schedules and post-production could always impact the current blueprint, however. Also, Marvel and Disney have a their second untitled movie set to open that summer on July 8th, so there is room to maneuver. Marvel films have all but owned the first weekend of summer for the past decade to enormous success, so it was somewhat surprising when Warner Bros announced in January that it would open the ‘Man of Steel’ follow-up on May 6th, 2016 as well.
