During the Marvel Studios panel at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, Kevin Feige confirmed that there will be a Captain Marvel sequel down the line. However, the film isn’t part of the Phase Four slate which stretches up to 2021. So, when exactly will Captain Marvel 2 hit the big screens? Well, interestingly enough, even Brie Larson doesn’t have a clue.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, the Oscar-winning actress was asked if she knows when the film will go on floors. Brie Larson said:
“No. I don’t really know what job I’m going to do next, which is very exciting. I don’t even know what my life’s gonna be! And most of this year, you know, I had to do the press tour. But then the last half of the year, I’ve just been focusing way more on just doing what I want to do that’s completely outside of my job.
I just feel like it’s been this incubation time. Whether it’s incubation because I’m developing projects, and also incubation myself, being, like: OK, I’m going to be turning 30. I’ve been working a lot. I need to just like change it up and see what’s there for me — see who I am now. And which ways that I want to grow.”
Looking at the MCU films that have already been announced, I think we can speculate that the earliest we’ll get Captain Marvel 2 is 2022. Remember, the likes of Black Panther 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 have no released dates announced yet as well. I believe we’ll get those sequels in phase five, while phase four focuses on introducing us to new characters like Shang-Chi and The Eternals.
