It seems likely that at least one of these untitled Marvel films will be a sequel for recent box office hit Black Panther (maybe one of the ones in 2021?) while others could include the already-confirmed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and sequels to Doctor Strange, Ant–Man, The Wasp and more.

Who knows? Maybe that Black Widow solo movie is in there too somewhere.

And we’re also guessing that some of the new Star Wars trilogies from Rian Johnson and David Benioff/DB Weiss are also hidden among the release dates here as “Untitled Disney Live Action” projects, unless of course Disney are holding those back even longer.

Still, what we do know for sure is this – going forward, Marvel seems keen to keep on with its current form of releasing three movies a year, and they’ll keep doing so until the natural heat death of the universe. As long as we get a new Black Panther, we’re not likely to care.
