    So Disney/Marvel today made their announcement of upcoming movies, which is on the heels of last weeks WB/DC slate of movies announced which of course folllows up Fox and Sony and what they have announced coming up so far. (all Marvel characters but licensed) Here is the list:

    2015 -
    May 1: Avengers: Age of Ultron (Disney/Marvel)
    July 17: Ant-Man (Disney/Marvel)
    August 7: Fantastic Four (Fox)

    2016 -
    February 12: Deadpool (Fox)
    March 25: Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice (WB/DC)
    May 6: Captain America: Civil War (Disney/Marvel)
    May 27: X-Men: Apocalypse (Fox)
    August 5: Suicide Squad (WB/DC)
    November 4: Doctor Strange (Disney/Marvel)
    November 11: Sinister Six (Sony)

    2017 -
    March 3: Untitled Wolverine sequel (Fox)
    May 5: Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (Disney/Marvel)
    June 23: Wonder Woman (WB/DC)
    July 14: Fantastic Four 2 (Fox)
    July 28: Thor: Ragnarok (Disney/Marvel)
    November 3: Black Panther (Disney/Marvel)
    November 17: Justice League, Part 1 (WB/DC)

    2018 -
    March 23: The Flash (WB/DC)
    May: Avengers: Infinity War, Part 2 (Disney/Marvel)
    July 6: Captain Marvel (Disney/Marvel)
    July 13: Yet to be revealed Marvel Comics film from Fox
    July 27: Aquaman (WB/DC)
    November 2: Inhumans (Disney/Marvel)
    Yet to be announced date: Amazing Spider-Man 3 (Sony)

    2019 -
    April 5: Shazam (WB/DC)
    May: Avengers: Infinity War, Part 2 (Disney/Marvel)
    June 14: Justice League, Part 2 (WB/DC)

    2020 -
    April 3: Cyborg (WB/DC)
    June 19: Green Lantern (WB/DC)

    No known dates yet but confirmed: Superman solo and Batman solo movie

    Now on the comic forums of course it is rapture and splendor and lots of infighting because this is like Yankees/Red Sox for some of them. Other things of note are that WB/DC will have the first female lead movie (Wonder Woman) and Disney/Marvel will have the first African-American lead film with Black Panther. (not big deal for me but some fans dig it) Disney/Marvel will have their female lead film in 2018 with Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) and WB/Disney will have Cyborg as their African American lead film in 2020. Benedict Cumberbatch signed to be Dr. Strange, and a litany of huge names are up for Suicide Squad. Tom Hardy is up for X-Men Apocalypse as Apocalypse, The Rock is playing Black Adam in Shazam and Jason Mamoa is playing Aquaman.

    That is a lot of friggin movies and more could come knowing the studios involved. The smart thing is all the studios spread them out so as not to cannibalize. (from March to November) All of them are banking on money overseas though. When you add in movies like Hunger Games, Star Wars, The Harry Potter Expanded Universe, the Lego Movie sequel and Lego Batman Film, Star Treks Sequel, and stuff like Pan...the realm of Sci-Fi fantasy might just be at critical mass If movies didnt cost so much to go to I might never be home

    I see that they are re-releasing Young Frankenstein on Blu-ray in honor of its 40th anniversary.

    For those who haven't seen it, it is really funny and worth a watch. Some great double-entendres.
