Top 10 Marvel Phase Three Moments We Cannot Wait To See

ANT-MAN wraps up Marvel's Phase Two and opens the door for the already outlined Phase Three. With ten films scheduled over the next four years, Marvel has promised a lot to fans. Needless to say, we are excited for what comes next. We have ranked our ten most anticipated moments coming over the next few years. If you were expecting something that didn't make our list, feel free to add it to the talk backs below.

#10 - A Proper Take On Spider-man

We now know that Tom Holland is playing the latest version of Peter Parker. Being an actual teenager will bring something different to how Spider-man is portrayed on screen. We will get our first look in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, but the developing solo film at Sony should take the fan favorite character back to his classic roots of being a high school loser granted an extraordinary responsibility.

#9 - Inhumans

The Kree/Human hybrid characters have already debuted on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. but their true story will not be told until their own movie closes out Phase Three before the second half of INFINITY WAR. How they will fit into the overall MCU seems to have been already laid out on the small screen, but whether the movies will stick to that remains to be seen.

#8 - Thor Versus The Apocalypse

Whether Thor survives the closing chapter of his trilogy is a mystery, but the subtitle RAGNAROK definitely indicates that a massive cataclysm is coming to Asgard. I have really grown to enjoy Chris Hemsworth's performance and giving him such an epic send-off will be something to see.

#7 - Diversity

Marvel will give headline spots to both a woman and a black character, but Phase 3 is also the biggest group of films in the MCU to date. With four new heroes getting their own movies instead of more sequels featuring the original stars of Marvel films, the universe is going to become deeper than ever before.

#6 - The Punisher

Season 2 of Daredevil is being billed as "Daredevil vs The Punisher". Could Marvel be cooking up Marvel's equivalent of BATMAN V SUPERMAN? The casting of Jon Bernthal caught many off guard but looks like a perfect fit for the MCU. I just hope the showrunners bring the same level of quality as the first season of Daredevil and take it up a notch.

#5 - The Defenders!

Daredevil has kicked off Netflix's batch of street level heroes with a bang and the promise of Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and now The Punisher, culminating in The Defenders should be the biggest event in television history. Like THE AVENGERS, The Defenders is going to shift what comic book properties are capable of doing and, hopefully, lead this small screen heroes to the big screen.

#4 - Return of the Guardians

James Gunn has already told so much and yet so little about GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 that it feels like it has already been filmed and waiting to be released. But, there is still a while before Star-lord and his crew of losers once again band together to defend the galaxy and regardless of what the story will be about we will be there to see it.

#3 - Strange Magic

While Scarlet Witch showcases some magic in AGE OF ULTRON, it was brought about thanks to alien technology. But, when Scott Derrickson's DOCTOR STRANGE debuts, we will see a very different side of the MCU. With a cast that includes Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tilda Swinton, and possibly Rachel McAdams, DOCTOR STRANGE is going to bring us a very different side of superheroes.

#2 - Civil War

Next March, Phase 3 officially begins with a movie that already sounds as big in scope as an AVENGERS film. Dividing the MCU in half and forcing new heroes like Ant-Man and Spider-man to choose sides is going to be quite the spectacle. I am not sure how it can be contained in one movie, but something tells me that the Russos are going to do even more than they did with THE WINTER SOLDIER.

#1 - Infinity War

Infinity War will be the next Avengers film, but something tells me this is going to be very different than what Joss Whedon delivered with the first two movies. Bridging two films released a year apart with two heroes debuting in between, directors Joe and Anthony Russo have a lot to live up to, especially if this movie brings together practically every hero in the MCU. Could there be anything more anticipated than this?

When will Adam Warlock be introduced?

Considering the key role Adam Warlock has in The Infinity Gauntlet, I am worried they'll just bypass him altogether in the movies...

"their true story will not be told until their own movie closes out Phase Three before the second half of INFINITY WAR." No. Inhumans is coming out AFTER Infinity War Part 2, not before. It's ending Phase 3 like Ant-Man ended Phase 2.

Every hero introduced so far should be involved in Infinity War, at least Part 2 anyways. This movie event is the culmination of everything Marvel has been building for (at that point) 10 years. We should be seeing every member of the Avengers so far, mixed with Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man, Dr. Strange. The GOTG should be showing up as well as the Inhumans. I know this might be a huge stretch, but depending on the success of the TV shows, we should get cameos of Daredevil,

Maybe even the Agents of SHIELD. Not everyone needs to be a focal point of the story, but they should all show up in some capacity, just like an event series in the comics.
