“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).
The Marvel Phase 3 will also bring Captain Marvel on July 6, 2018. This movie marks the first first female-led film from Marvel Studios. Captain Marvel aka Carol Danvers has been in the making already a long time. Her adventures are very earthbound, but her powers are based in the cosmic realm
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige also announced Marvel's "Doctor Strange" would hit theaters November 4, 2016, marking the hero's big screen debut. Scott Derrickson will direct the film introducing the Master of the Mystic Arts to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
"It takes a while to work on these movies before they're ready to come to you in theaters," said Feige. "Doctor Stephen Strange, brilliant neurosurgeon, bit of an arrogant fellow who gets in a car accident and ruins what he thinks are the tools of his trade: his hands. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of the supernatural, that involves everything from quantum mechanics to string theory. The idea of this film is to open up a whole new corner of the cinematic universe. We want to enter, through Strange, the world of parallel dimensions."
