Despite having only just outlined a new series of release dates stretching forward until 2019, Marvel has added another mystery film to its roster on 3 May 2018.
And while the studio has not confirmed any specifics, online speculation has this new untitled project down as The Avengers 3 , an assumption that would appear to make sense, on face value at least.
After all, the first Avengers film arrived back in 2012, with its sequel to hit cinemas in 2015. As such, a further three year gap would certainly seem to add up for the threequel.
With Fox having just announced The Amazing Spider-Man 3 for the very same weekend, it would appear to be a bullish move by Marvel, although if either of those titles were to move, the smart money would be on Spidey.
We’ll have to wait and see whether any more details are spilled at Comic-Con, but don’t be surprised to hear word of the Avengers’ next mission before the week is out…
