Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige took the stage at Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre with the complete Marvel Phase 3 timeline, which begins with Captain America: Civil War on May 6, 2016 and continues through Marvel Avengers: Infinity War Part II in May 2019. Feige also introduced actor Chadwick Boseman as the star of Black Panther, scheduled for release November 3, 2017.
“I’m blessed to be a part of this Marvel Universe, and to work with you both, and I look forward to making magic together,” Boseman said after taking the stage with both Robert Downey, Jr. (Iron Man) and Chris Evans (Captain America).
“Black Panther and all of Wakanda is one of the most interesting characters in Marvel history,” remarked Feige. “Something I already showed you today contains an Easter egg that leads directly into Black Panther. He’s a bit of a prince, he may even become a bit of a king, but it’s all about how this isolationist country meets the world. Maybe it goes well, maybe it doesn’t.”
