Epic Marvel Phase Three Video Previews Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther And More


Remember the treasure trove of Marvel-related trinkets that came bundled in with last week’s release of Doctor Strange? From awe-inspiring concept art to an early peek at Thor and Hulk’s Herculean battle in Thor: Ragnarok, the Digital HD launch of Strange offered up an exciting preview of Marvel’s Phase Three and beyond, and it’s now available online for your viewing pleasure.

Coming to us via CBM, the video above includes many of the same interviews that appeared in the “First Day On Set” featurette for Avengers: Infinity War – Kevin Feige included – but there are plenty of exciting plot points and other morsels of information to be found relating to Ragnarok, Black Panther and even Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Despite its status as a Phase Three release, there’s nary a mention of Spider-Man: Homecoming to be found, and after Tom Holland’s Web-Head was finally confirmed for Joe and Anthony Russo’s Infinity War, it seems director Jon Watts and Co. are keeping their cards close to their chest ahead of the film’s launch in July. And really, that’s okay. Fans have already clocked eyes on the first teaser trailer for Homecoming, and pumping out additional promos five months out from release would only risk overexposure.

Circling back to Infinity War, though, now that the Russo brothers have officially fired up production – with an updated logo to boot – there’s a crackle of excitement swirling around Marvel’s 2018 event film, and with such a humungous cast in tow, it’s little wonder why.

In fact, as Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige teases, Avengers: Infinity War stands as the culmination of the studio’s grand vision and will, apparently, be unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. It’s currently lensing in Atlanta ahead of a release on May 4th, 2018. Other Phase Three films currently simmering in production include Guardians 2 (May 5th, 2017), Spider-Man: Homecoming (July 7th, 2017), and Thor: Ragnarok (November 3rd, 2017).
