Here’s an up-to-date timeline of every comic book movie until 2020


With the massive announcements made yesterday at the Marvel Studios event, Comics Alliance has put together an up-to-date (as of Oct. 28, 2014) infographic of all the superhero movies that have been announced so far. Looks as if our wallets are going to hurt between now and 2020.


Here are a few things to take note out of the above infographic:

1) There are rumors that Sony is waiting to see if Sinister Six does well in theaters before deciding if Spider-Man should have a joint venture with the MCU. Would you look at what’s being released a week before Sinister Six comes out… Yup, Marvel’s Doctor Strange.

Expect that Sinister Six date to be moved or else Doctor Strange might take away some of the thunder of the Sinister Six film. Keep in mind that this move could also possibly strain the negotiations between the two studios. This could be Marvel Studios way of sabotaging the Spider-Man cinematic universe so, maybe, Sony might give up the rights fully.

2) We get both Justice League 2 and Avengers: Infinity Wars (Part II) in the same summer. It’s like 2015 all over again.

3) Poor Black Panther is being released 2 weeks before Justice League‘s release date.

4) As much as this seems overcrowded, keep in mind that a lot of these films ride on the success of the first film, ie. Fantastic Four, Sinister Six, etc. If the films tank then consider the sequels (and/or spin-offs) to be scrapped. The only sure thing is Marvel Studios. Maybe the X-Men Cinematic Universe and the DC Cinematic Universe are set in stone as well, but Warner Bros has changed their mind about the DC lineup before.

What do you think? It’s a good time to be a comic book fan.
