Marvel reportedly already planning "Guardians Of The Galaxy 2" for 2016

Possibly in direct competition with Batman Vs. Superman

In a recent interview, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige claimed the company has its upcoming productions mapped out through the year 2021 (what, not 2099?). Most of the titles are still secret; at present, only one of these so-called “Phase Three” movies has been officially announced—July 2015’s Ant-Man. But Marvel’s already staked its claim to several upcoming release dates, including May 6, 2016 and May 5, 2017. They just won’t say what films will be opening yet.

According to JoBlo, the next of these Phase Three films will be a sequel to Guardians Of The Galaxy, which opens in theaters this coming August. Their initial report said Guardians 2 would open in the May 2016 slot, which would put it in direct competition with Batman Vs. Superman Vs. Wonder Woman Vs. Mark Zuckerberg. JoBlo later updated their piece after their source clarified that the sequel would open “sometime in 2016,” but not necessarily on that May date.
