Marvel confirms Thor 2 and Captain America 2 for Comic-Con

Makes reference to “ever-expanding Marvel Universe”

Marvel has confirmed that both Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Thor: The Dark World will be heading to Comic-Con, while making an intriguing reference to Phase 3 of its cinematic output.

As well as confirming the aforementioned sequels, the official press notes promise that the Marvel panel will include “an inside look at the ever-expanding Marvel cinematic universe.”

Could it be that the studio will use the convention to officially unveil its Phase 3 lineup? With a number of untitled projects currently pencilled in on its release slate, now might be the perfect time to reveal what those mystery films actually are.

There are currently four Marvel titles in line to follow The Avengers 2, with Ant-Man arriving on 6 November 2015, before the first untitled film on 6 May 2016, the second on 8 July 2016, and another on 5 May 2017.

Marvel has previously used the convention to make huge announcements (remember the whole Avengers shebang back in 2010), so don’t be surprised to see some huge developments unfold when Comic-Con kicks off on 18 July…

What do you think Marvel's mystery titles are? Tell us, below!

      Nothing wrong with having a road map. It's not like they're being aimless.

      I think Marvel should be commended for planning ahead and having faith in their product, plus it's now known that Ant-Man, Doctor Strange and Black Panther are all receiving films in Phase Three ... notice not a single sequel amongst them ... as for the production line comment, well, d'oh, they are a film production studio who currently have a good thing on their hands, they'd be idiots NOT to capitalise on their success.

      only time will tell if Marvel is going much deeper into the lore, or just over capitalising. So far none of them have gone as deep as the Batman trilogy, i'm not being pro-Nolan, please, they're a bit morose, but even the Harry Potter series ( i'm not being pro-potter either!) had more emotional range, and they were all schoolchildren. Im basing this concern on the OTT theatrics in IM3, i liked bits but it was mostly spectacle over substance, for me.

      IM3 was a massive decline for them (not financially) n although they were brave with the whole Mandarin thing, it just became all to generic n it was only until the last pointless 10 mins I realised how good Jon Favreau / IM1 & 2 actually were. I'm pretty excited about the future Marvel line up, as to be fair they are putting a lot more effort n time into their products n although The Dark Knight Trilogy was something of a superhero master piece nothing from either DC or Marvel is gonna match it! So lets stop comparing the Batman stuff. Marvel have deserved the success they've received not only for their bravery, but their ambition and having the balls to stand up to arrogant actors who tried to take over, or have more say! As Sinatra would say "I did it myyy wayyyyy....... and now we're multi billionairessssss" ..... i added the last bit for Marvel : D. They are playing the long game and planning everything, well phase 1 worked didn't it?.........

      The whole 'Mandarin' thing was just Marvels obvious attempt at pandering to the Chinese, so as not to offend their new paymasters and the chinese market. All the while, trying to pass it off 'ooh aren't we subversive in ignoring our entire back catalogue for a cheap gag?. -chortle-.. Panda-ring..

      Lol probably true, but at least they've tied up that loose end n don't have to go deeper in to the Mandarin story arc etc, which is disappointing and Lazy.... Just thought from trailers Mandarin could have been best Marvel villain to date!.... Shame.... Mmm yeah thanks China screw you and your penguin coloured teddies! (Pandas!) haha

      Just to offset the negativity in this thread, I love Iron Man 3 and I firmly believe that allegations of its cheapness are unfounded. I thought it had more depth than IM2, in fact.
