With Avengers: Infinity War quickly approaching (one week earlier than scheduled!) it is easy for fans to get discouraged that it could all come to an end. No doubt things will change after the smoke clears from Infinity War, but that doesn’t mean it will be the end.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige did say in an interview that everything would change after the two climactic films saying that Infinity War will “bring things you’ve never seen in superhero films: a finale … There will be two distinct periods. Everything before ‘Avengers 4’ and everything after. I know it will not be in ways people are expecting.”
Marvel has announced the release dates of six Marvel films to be released through the year 2022. The next announced films are the summer 2018 sequel to Ant-Man, entitled Ant-Man and the Wasp, and after that will be the spring 2019 release of Captain Marvel.
Guardians of the Galaxy 3 was also confirmed by director James Gunn, in a Tweet, to be releasing sometime in 2020, but no further details than that have emerged, yet.

Besides these three films, however, the itinerary is up in the air. At least, it is up in the air for all but the highest-ups at Marvel Studios.
This week, however, Marvel Studios gave everyone a slight bit of clarity in regards to the elusive MCU Phase 4 that is to come after Avengers: Infinity War.
