I'd have to think Thor 2 would have to fit in there somewhere, somehow, too.
Well, the Superhero war for 2014 is on, I guess. Hopefully we get another good crop!

After Sony staked out a release date for the sequel to Amazing Spider-Man for May 2, 2014, looks like that spurred Disney and Marvel Studios to set release dates for their two films for May 16, 2014 and June 27, 2014.
I say Doctor Strange for May 16th, 2014 and Captain America 2 for June 27th, 2014.

Batman: I suppose it's useless to tell you to leave.
Superman: I wouldn't miss this for anything.
Batman: Your funeral.
Superman: Already had one.
I have a feeling Dmxx116 is right. I imagine Antman will be saved as a lead-in to Avengers 2. Marvel wanted to appease Wright because they liked his script which predated Iron Man, and they came up with Avengers around the time Iron Man came out. They can honestly tie-in Dr. Strange there somehow too. My personal belief is, they want to use Dr. Strange to build up the cosmic/supernatural part of the universe. They can therefore bring in the Mandarin and possibly Fin Fang Foom, two major IM villains. We don't know what their planning for IM 3, but I think they going to keep building up to the Mandarin, especially if they can do an Iron Man film every two years.
Any hope the Hulk would be one of those films?
Any hopes of Sub-Mariner or Black Panther?
Those are two guys that don't get much love.

I miss the old days when they actually paid talented people to be on Television.
I'll side with Doctor Strange is first, then Captain America 2. That said, I feel like repeating what I said in the Captain America 2 thread, and that is why didn't Marvel claim July 4 weekend 2014 for it? It'd be a HUGE blockbuster if it opened then, because who wouldn't see Captain America on the Fourth of July?
In February 2011, McFeely and Markus were commissioned to write the sequel. So they should be working on breaking the story up to working on an outline. Whereas, I'm pretty sure I remember multiple drafts for the scripts of Dr. Strange and Ant-Man were turned in already.
EDIT: Saw an article that had a scan of that EW article. In a "What's Next" blurb (and a tip of the iceberg in terms of properties being looked at probably), Fiege talked about Iron Man 3, Thor 2, Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, and the Inhumans. Link: CBM Article
Those last two seem like a big jump and seem to hinge on The Avengers succeeding. But I'm leery of them going too far with the scope of the MCU. But nothing's set in stone yet for them.

I actually have that EW issue and they do have the main part of the issue talking about the Avengers since that is suppose to be one of the big 2012 movies that is what Marvel has been working towards for the last seven years so I'm sure they're expecting it to do really well (like Iron Man well) which is why they're also pushing for more movies afterward. Based on the article I think we're going to see Ant Man (considering that's already in the scrpt writing process and if Edgar Wright's name is attached to it we should be expecting good things) and Guardians of the Galaxy (if they're trying to have it as a space epic ala Thor. Besides I'm sure we'll be hearing about the Avengers 2 at least after the Avengers comes out and Marvel will want a super hero team movie to fill a slot before that time).
Instead of just using this new signature to celebrate a thousand more post, let me list of all the great things you can expect of me on this board for 2012:
...... The same talkbacks you saw me do last year but with new episodes.
.... What are you doing still reading this? Move to the next post already! .
I think the only reason Guardians and Inhumans are being considered because right now it can take the audience off earth and explore guys like Capn Marvell, Adam Warlock, and Quasar. I believe Marvel wants to get away from earth until they can start getting some of their major characters back like FF and such.
Dr. Strange has potential to really explore the dark and cosmic aspect of the universe as well. Now that they have Blade as well,they can really dig into that side of the MCU. All they're really missing is Ghost Rider, and well Daredevil in a way, but they can be avoided. They will need some good actors for Blade and Strange though.
