We've got everything you need to know about the upcoming Marvel movie schedule all in one place. The Marvel superhero movie plan now stretches all the way to 2020. The amazing thing is, it's even more ambitious than we anticipated, with new movies getting announced all the time.

But now it's on to the new Marvel movie release schedule! Here goes...
May 6th, 2016: Captain America: Civil War
Robert Downey Jr. is joining up with Captain America 3 in order to bring the Marvel Cinematic Universe to the brink of Civil War. Joe and Anthony Russo are back as directors, with Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely writing. Nearly everyone who has ever been an Avengers will make an appearance. Spider-Man might show up for this party, too.
Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
We're pretty sure that Captain America: Civil War will have a ridiculous impact on the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We wrote more about that right here.
November 4th, 2016, Doctor Strange
Marvel is betting pretty heavily on Doctor Strange, with Benedict Cumberbatch now set to star as Stephen Strange. The movie also stars Tilda Swinton as Strange's mentor The Ancient One and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Strange's rival, Baron Mordo. Scott Derrickson is directing, from a script by Jon Spaihts. We expect good things from this one, too.
May 5th, 2017, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
James Gunn will be back to direct the sequel to the most unlikely superhero hit of recent years. Recent plot details indicate we're going to meet some very important new characters in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Yes, that's the real title.
We're just waiting for that new soundtrack...
Spidey entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a seismic event. We'll first meet Spidey in Captain America: Civil War, but this will be his first solo outing onder the Marvel banner. We don't know much about the story yet, other than that it will focus on a high school aged Spider-Man, feature villains we haven't seen on screen before, and have a "John Hughes" vibe.
Tom Holland will play Marvel's new Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Marisa Tomei will play Aunt May.
Drew Goddard, the man previously set to helm Sony's Sinister Six movie, was once mentioned to write or direct this one, but the job ultimately went to Jon Watts (Cop Car). John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein (Vacation) will write the script.
