Updated Full Comic Book Movie Schedule For DC And Marvel Through 2020 — New Dates And Titles Added After Comic-Con

There may not have been a lot of huge announcements at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con, but that’s simply because the comic book movie schedule is already out through 2020. Fans know what is coming, but they need to remember when their favorites from the DC Extended Universe and Marvel Studios will hit theaters.

DC and Marvel both have one film each that will be released in 2016 and the next will be Suicide Squad on August 5. From there, Marvel will have its final release of the year with Doctor Strange in the early part of the holiday movie season.

In the past week, it was also revealed that Aquaman was going to get a complete overhaul as far as the script goes, but the release date is still the same for now.

Please remember that dates are always subject to change but as of this writing, these are the current dates for all films listed below.

2016

August 5: Suicide Squad
November 4: Doctor Strange

2017

February 20: The LEGO Batman Movie
March 3: The Wolverine 3 (Fox)

June 2: Wonder Woman
July 7: Spider-Man: Homecoming
October 6: Untitled Fox/Marvel Film
November 3: Thor: Ragnarok
November 17: Justice League, Part 1

The recent release of the Justice League trailer really shocked a lot of people as it is still almost a year-and-a-half away. It was quite the thrill for fans to see and they were a lot happier with those two-and-a-half minutes than they were with the entire duration of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The film is obviously not as dark and it looks like it will have some more humor in it and a lighter tone which is what ultimately caused the smaller box office for Dawn of Justice.

2018

February 16: Black Panther
March 16: The Flash
May 4: Avengers: Infinity War, Part 1
July 6: Ant-Man and the Wasp
July 13: Untitled Fox/Marvel Film
July 27: Aquaman
October 5: Untitled DCEU film
December 21: Spider-Man Animated Feature (Sony)

Obviously, 2018 is absolutely packed with big movies including the next Avengers movie which was just recently revealed to have changed. As reported by Vulture, it will no longer be a two-part climax to Marvel’s Phase 3, but two separate films entirely.

2019

March 8: Captain Marvel
April 5: Shazam
May 3: Untitled Avengers Film
June 14: Justice League, Part 2
November 1: Untitled DCEU Film

Captain Marvel was already on the schedule for Marvel Studios, but no one knew who would end up in the title role. As Entertainment Weekly reported, it ended up going to Brie Larson and she was introduced in the most amazing way at Comic-Con.

As the Marvel panel wowed the audience in Hall H, Larson headed out on stage to join Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige along with the casts of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Black Panther, and Doctor Strange.

Inhumans was on the schedule for July 12, 2019, but it has since been removed from the schedule entirely by Marvel Studios. As of this time, an updated release date is not yet known.

2020

April 3: Cyborg
May 1: Untitled Marvel Studios Film
June 19: Green Lantern Corps
July 10: Untitled Marvel Studios Film
November 6: Untitled Marvel Studios Film

The comic book movie schedule is absolutely loaded with films over the course of the next four-and-a-half years. Fans of DC Comics and Marvel Comics have plenty to get excited about, and it’s only going to continue. As of now, there is a set schedule through 2020 but there will be much more to come after all these films pass and new characters will be introduced to the world via the big screen.
