While much of the focus on Marvel Studios’ upcoming projects centers around this year’s releases — Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp — and next year’s Captain Marvel, the post Avengers 4 slate is something of a mystery. We know a Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel will arrive in 2019 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is in the works. Beyond that, details are thin.

But according to The Hollywood Reporter, release dates for six films in the next decade have been announced. Currently, Disney plans to release Marvel Studios pictures on May 7, 2021, July 30, 2021, Nov. 5, 2021, Feb. 18, 2022, May 6, 2022;,and July 29, 2022. It will also release an untitled picture previously scheduled for an August 2020 release on July 31st of that year.

As Disney reserves the slots for the films ahead of their development, things can shift. Both Black Panther and Captain Marvel shifted their original release dates to accommodate Spider-Man: Homecoming and the surprise addition of Ant-Man and the Wasp. Nonetheless, it is easy to imagine a Black Panther sequel and a subsequent Captain Marvel film taking some of those dates. I suppose there would also be interest in a Doctor Strange sequel, as well.

With the fourth Avengers film set for a May 3rd, 2019 release, the Spider-Man sequel will be the first glimpse into the Phase 4 Marvel Cinematic Universe. Early word suggests the next phase will be more cosmic, so perhaps Nova and the Eternals will get their chance to shine.

The next Marvel film, Avengers: Infinity War debuts on April 27th.
