Some of you may be concerned at the relative lack of activity from the Marvel Comic brand in recent times, but this represents little more than the calm before a considerable storm. More specifically, Marvel have three block-buster movies scheduled for release in the next 15 months, starting with two high-anticipated films this summer. These films will look to build on the considerable success of the Iron Man franchise and Guardians of the Galaxy, while cementing Marvel’s status as the worlds’ premier comic book studio. They will also help to drive the themed mobile and slot gaming market, with platforms such as Titanbet Casino who offers games such as Iron Man 2 video slot.
Here are Marvel’s next three releases and a brief insight into what we can expect as viewers:
Avengers: Age of Ultron – May 1, 2015
We start with the Avengers: Age of Ultron movie, which will launch at the beginning of May 2015. The highly anticipated sequel to The Avengers will unite Marvel’s most iconic characters in a battle against the evil and villainous Ultron, as Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye join forces for the classic fight between good and evil. Joss Whedon will take charge behind the camera, and his experience with this type of movie almost guarantees a box office sensation.
Ant-Man – July 17, 2015
This film is seminal for Marvel, not least because it introduces a new character to the spectrum of the brands cinematic world. Ant-Man is a costumed vigilante and anti-hero whose power enables him to shrink in size while maintaining his incredible, proportional strength. Michael Douglas has landed the role of Dr. Hank Pym, while talented director Peyton Reed will take centre stage behind the camera. This film may not be as highly-anticipated as the Avengers screenplay, it is one that will draw millions of viewers and herald the dawn of a new franchise.
Captain America: Civil War – May 6, 2016
One of the benefits of having such a large and diverse range of characters is the potential depth of storylines that it creates. This is set to be explored further in Marvel’s movie Captain America: Civil War, which will launch in cinemas on May 6th in 2016. In this feature film, we expect to see Iron Man (Tony Stark) at odds with Captain America (Steve Rogers), as the two clash and place the safety of the entire universe at risk. This will certainly add a new dimension to the Marvel Brand, and create the potential for similar movie releases in the future.
