Marvel snags ‘Amazing Spider-Man 4’ vacated release date. Laughs to themselves.


Marvel ain’t playing, BRUH. Over the weekend they announced a fucking avalanche of movie release dates, but they ain’t done. Not at all! With Sony moving around their Amazing Spider-Man release schedule today because the Franchise Ain’t Well, Marvel snagged one of the newly opened dates. While they, no doubt, were laughing at Sony and its inability to do anything as well as them.

Five brand new untitled films weren’t enough. Marvel just made it six. After announcing five untitled movies in 2017, 2018 and 2019, Marvel Studios has just added one more date to the mix. They’ve taken the slot vacated earlier Wednesday by The Amazing Spider-Man 4and now a new, untitled Marvel Studios movie will hit theaters May 4, 2018. That’s three years after Avengers: Age of Ultron, which itself is three years after The Avengers. So is May 4, 2018 the day we’ll see The Avengers 3? Let’s discuss below.

Marvel announced the date on their Twitter. That means, this is now the Marvel upcoming slate.

Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1, 2015
Ant-Man on July 17, 2015
Captain America 3 on May 6, 2016
Untitled on July 8, 2016 (which we think will be Doctor Strange since that film has a director attached, putting it next in line).
Untitled on May 5, 2017
July 28, 2017
November 3, 2017
May 4, 2018 (NEW)
July 6, 2018
November 2, 2018
May 3, 2019 

That is a lot of Marvel. And to recap, Sony had previously set The Amazing Spider-Man 3 for 2016 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 for May 4, 2018 but that changed Wednesday. That’s why Sinister Six was slotted into November 2016 and Part 3 was bumped to an unspecified date in 2018.
