Disney scheduling update indicates releases for two new Marvel films and a new title for The Muppets

06.13.2013

Disney has just put out a press release highlighting their upcoming release schedule, which indicates a title change for THE MUPPETS sequel (now MUPPETS MOST WANTED), a newly announced follow-up to the yet-to-be-released animated PLANES, date shifts for a number of projects, and most interestingly, the announcement of dates for two new Marvel films that will follow ANT-MAN after 2015. Which ones could they be? I'm guessing that DOCTOR STRANGE is one of them with the high possibility that the second is BLACK PANTHER, but so far mum's the word. Take a look at the full roster below and let us know what two Marvel films you think are most likely to fill the newly announced slots in the strikeback!

Here's the schedule:

SAVING MR. BANKS (Disney)

Now opens 12/13/13 limited. The previously announced 12/20/13 wide playdate is unchanged.

Inspired by true events, SAVING MR. BANKS is the extraordinary, untold story of how Disney’s classic MARY POPPINS made it to the screen—and the testy relationship that the legendary Walt Disney had with author P.L. Travers that almost derailed it.

Complete project profile below.

MUPPETS MOST WANTED (Disney)

MUPPETS MOST WANTED is the final title of the follow-up to 2011’s THE MUPPETS. The previously announced 3/21/14 wide playdate is unchanged.

Starring Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell and Tina Fey, Disney’s MUPPETS MOST WANTED takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour where they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper. 

Complete project profile below.

PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE (Disney)

ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY, based on the award-winning children’s book by Judith Viorst, follows young Alexander through the mishaps of a terrible day for his family after he wishes they all would experience the same troubles he does.

TOMORROWLAND (Disney)

The film is being directed by Brad Bird and written and produced by Bird and Damon Lindelof.

George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Raffey Cassidy and Thomas Robinson have been cast.

INTO THE WOODS (Disney)

Now dated on Thursday, 12/25/14 wide.

INTO THE WOODS, based on the Tony-winning original musical by James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim, surrounds a baker and his wife’s quest to break a witch’s curse in order to start a family.  Along the way, they encounter several well-known fairy tale characters, and together they learn what happens after “happily ever after”. 

THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY (DreamWorks)

Now dated on 8/8/14 wide.

Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey and Juliet Blake producing.
THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY, based on the international best-selling book by Richard C. Morais, tells the story of an Indian boy living in France who becomes the culinary apprentice to his father's rival.

UNTITLED MARVEL FILMS

We’ve also announced dates for two UNTITLED MARVEL films (5/6/16 and 5/5/17), in line with Marvel’s successful tradition of opening films in early May, including the billion-dollar hits MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS and Marvel’s IRON MAN 3. We look forward to announcing more details about these films as well as the sequel to THE AVENGERS (opening 5/1/15) at a later date.

Another Planes

I'm the most excited person i know anticipating "Planes" this summer. And my anticipation is luke-warm at best.

Why is Disney already moving forward with a Planes sequel? do they really have no other projects to invest the toon studio in?

One is obviously Avengers 3

If Avengers 2 is 5/1/15, then I think it is a safe bet that Avengers 3 is 5/5/17.

not obvious considering Avegers 2 is 3 years after the first, so following toe, Avengers 3 would release 2018. The 2017 date would more likely be Thor 3 or Captain America 3

Since Into the Woods is gaining traction, I'd very much love to see a Wicked movie finally get off the ground.

For the two Marvel movies, I'm betting one is Iron Man 4 and the other is Dr. Strange.

I for one would love to see the two untitled Marvel films be Doctor Strange and Black Panther. So much potential with both characters and films.
