Marvel schedules untitled film for release in 2016

Marvel has announced another untitled film to be slotted into its long-term release schedule, the third such project pencilled in for 2016 and 2017.

The announcement confirms the studio’s commitment to a two-films-per-year output, with the film in question slated to arrive in US cinemas on 8 July 2016.

That release date will see it arrive mere months after the first untitled Marvel project, which is currently set to hit Stateside screens on 6 May 2016, before a third mystery film on 5 May 2017.

As for what these unnamed films might turn out to be, there’s plenty of room for speculation. We know that Marvel is keen on a Doctor Strange movie, while there has been plenty of online clamour for a Black Panther introduction.

Alternatively, Marvel could be laying the groundwork for third outings for Thor or Captain America, while there’s also been much discussion surrounding a potential standalone for Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk.

In any case, we’re likely to find out more when Marvel hits Comic-Con next month. Place your bets now…
