    Marvel Studios Announces Updated Theatrical Release Schedule

    With a disastrous Phase Four, Marvel is rebuilding up its reputation with Phase Five. However, Phase Four was crucial for only two reasons – raising a whole new array of Marvel characters like He Who Remains and Shang-Chi. And, primarily to introduce the concept of the multiverse.

    ‘Antman and the Wasp: Qauntaumania’ and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 3′ from Phase Five have tended to restore the lost faith of Marvel fans. Phase Five and Phase Six are yet to deliver many promising and exciting projects including ‘Secret Invasion’ and ‘Avengers: Secret Wars‘. Nevertheless, Marvel fans need to contain their excitement a little longer due to the recently updated Marvel theatrical release schedule.
