At a special event held earlier today at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, California, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige took to the stage to give a sneak peek into Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe — i.e., what will take place after Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron hits the big screen on May 1, 2015.
Captain America 3: Civil War will be released May 6, 2016, followed closely by Doctor Strange on November 4, 2016. The latter will be directed by Scott Derrickson who was in attendance at the event. According to Feige, Doctor Strange ‘will open up a whole new world for the cinematic universe.‘
