'Guardians Of The Galaxy 2' Officially Coming On July 28, 2017

This month, Marvel Studios announced plans to add six films to its always expanding slate of features. It was expected that the studio would perhaps announce a few of those titles during its Comic-Con presentation on Saturday night, but only one name was revealed: "Guardians of the Galaxy 2" will arrive on July 28, 2017. James Gunn will return to write and direct the sequel, which follows next week's "Guardians of the Galaxy."

As for the rest of the Marvel schedule, "Marvel's The Avengers: Age of Ultron" is out on May 1, 2015. Peyton Reed's "Ant-Man" arrives two months later, on July 17, 2015. "Captain America 3" comes next on May 6, 2016. After that and excluding "Guardians 2," there are seven unnamed or unannounced films on the calendar: July 8, 2016, May 5, 2017, Nov. 3, 2017, May 4, 2018, July 6, 2018, Nov. 2, 2018 and May 3, 2019. ("Doctor Strange" is expected to arrive on that July 8, 2016 slot, but Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige made no reference to the film during the Comic-Con panel despite rumors that Joaquin Phoenix would be announced as star of the film during the event.)

"Guardians of the Galaxy" is out on Aug. 1.
