[UPDATED] Marvel Officially Releases Its PHASE 3 Calendar
Update (6:10 pm EST) - An incorrect version of the Marvel Phase 3 calendar was shared prior to its correct version now available in its place. Damn you H.Y.D.R.A.!
It's pretty clear that Walt Disney Co. and Marvel Studios have the upper hand with Warner Bros. still trailing with its DC Cinematic Universre. Last month's epic conference at the El Capitan Theater was just what the fanbase needed in overseeing just exactly where all the Marvel movies were going after the first two phases, on top of continuing casting announcements with the confirmation of Get On Up star Chadwick Boseman for Black Panther and Rush co-star, actor Daniel Bruhl's casting for a villain role in next Spring's production of Captain America: Civil Warthis week.
So, more casting continues, and with the May 1, 2015 deadline set for Joss Whedon's possible MCU bow out as director with Avengers: Age Of Ultron, all the dates are locked in with no word yet on what the future will bring except for what trickles from the studio itself, or random clues and leaks from the slithering scoundrels of H.Y.D.R.A.. On that note, Marvel Studios just officially put out this cool roster of all the announced MCU: Phase 3 films to come which you can check out below.
You know you want this in your room too! Don't hate.
Chaos and Extraction helmer Tony Giglio is back and pretty much confirming just shy of a year after posting this teaser pic that actor and martial artist Michael Jai White does, in fact, get to fire that big ass gun. S.W.A.T.: Under Siege is the name and a likely direct-to-video a la sequel in name to its predecessors with no relation to its current TV form.

Crave Online broke the exclusive with an official synopsis on Monday: When a D.E.A. and S.W.A.T. cartel takedown ends in a shootout, S.W.A.T. Agent Travis Hall (Jaeger) seizes a mysterious prisoner and takes him into custody. Before long, the S.W.A.T. compound is under siege by wave after wave of as…
I suppose actor Keanu Reeves's current success and busy schedule with Lionsgate's John Wick franchise makes the current myopia on his previously-announced attachment to the Rain series somewhat forgiveable. Granted of course it's something I still hope to see flourish, and while it is especially great to see such a fresh new property blooming beyond the big screen with word via Indiewire regarding The Continental.
The show aims to spin-off from the films with further exploration of characters operating within the auspices of the titular assassins' luxury hotel chain. Chad Stahelski, who directed the latest sequel John Wick: Chapter 2 is developing the project with franchise scribe Derek Kolstad and have been doing so since long before the sequel's arrival. “They’ve got a really good structure,” Stahelski said. “It’s very tied to the film [in that] it’s about the Continentals all over the world, how certain people come into that world, and what happens in relation t…
Debut director Jonathan Li's upcoming action crime thriller, , is looking better and better since March. A new teaser as well as a brand new official trailer have arrived hailing the return of actor Max Zhang to the lens in one of several films coming down the pipeline.
