Yesterday Variety reported on Disney’s announcement for 19 movies all the way through to the year 2020, including Pixar’s Cars 3 for the summer of 2017 and The Incredibles 2 for 2019.
<RANT>Aw heck, who am I kidding. It’s not just Variety that announced it. By now EVERYONE has announced it! But hey, we hear at T G Squared Studios have to talk about this because these projects SOOO fall inside the wheelhouse of those things we love. However, it’s just the two of us! We don’t have a full writing staff so Keith and I just have to find the time to put these stories together as best we can, and sadly this one fell through the “cracks of time,” meaning we saw the story, but it came out at a time where neither of us were able to report on it. This means we’re reporting on it now, so get comfortable!!!</RANT>
In addition to the aforementioned Cars 3 and The Incredibles 2, Disney has also moved Toy Story 4 back by a year, from June 16, 2017, to June 15, 2018.
The 19 dates included six Marvel titles — an Ant-Man sequel, Black Panther, Captain Marvel and three untitled films as part of its plans for Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Ant-Man and the Wasp will hit theaters on July 6, 2018, while the three untitled Marvel Studios films will bow on May 1, 2020, July 10, 2020, and Nov. 6, 2020.
Disney and Marvel have also opted to move Black Panther forward five months from July 6, 2018, to Feb. 16, 2018. The character will be portrayed by Chadwick Boseman and will debut in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.
Captain Marvel has been moved forward eight months from Nov. 2, 2018, to March 8, 2018.
Disney also announced Thursday that it has crossed the $4 billion mark at the global box office, beating its previous studio record by six weeks. As of Oct. 7, the studio has hauled $1.4 billion in the U.S. and Canada and $2.6 billion internationally.
