Big News From Marvel: Black Panther, Dr. Strange, and Much, Much, MUCH More

Wow, Marvel really knows how to make an announcement. Get out your calendars:

May 6, 2016: Captain America: Civil War
Nov. 4, 2016: Doctor Strange
May 5, 2017: Guardians of the Galaxy 2
July 28, 2017: Thor: Ragnarok
Nov. 3, 2017: Black Panther
May 4, 2018: Avengers: Infinity War – Part I
July 6, 2018: Captain Marvel
Nov. 2, 2018: Inhumans
May 3, 2019: Avengers: Infinity War – Part II

And here’s what makes it extra cool.  Captain Marvel will be the first in the series about a female superhero and Black Panther will be the first starring a person of color.  I was really happy to hear that Chadwick Boseman, who has previously played Jackie Robinson (“42”) and James Brown (“Get on Up”) has been cast as the Black Panther.  For more details about these characters and the gleanings from the titles by the fanboys and fangirls, check out #MarvelEvent tweets.
