This fall, Benedict Cumberbatch will star in "Doctor Strange," the onscreen debut of Marvel's powerful Sorcerer Supreme.

Cumberbatch will play neurosurgeon Stephen Strange. After a horrific car accident, Strange falls into a mysterious world of sorcery and mysticism.

Director Scott Derrickson says the visuals will be radically different from the other Marvel movies, telling EW he was afraid Marvel execs would "knock on the door [and say] 'This movie’s too weird, we can’t make this.'"

"Doctor Strange" is in theaters November 4.

We'll be getting a spin-off of "The LEGO Movie," centered around Batman, next February.

Will Arnett will reprise his role as the tiny and sassy Caped Crusader in the aptly titled "The LEGO Batman Movie." We expect everything to be awesome once more.

"The LEGO Batman Movie" will be in theaters February 10, 2017.

Hugh Jackman will star in another Wolverine movie next March. Jackman claims this will be his final appearance as the character.

Jackman has appeared in eight films as Wolverine since the first "X-Men" film (17 years ago!) back in 2000. His brief cameo in "X-Men: Apocalypse" may have been a set up for his final appearance.

The yet untitled "Wolverine 3" will be out March 3, 2017.

The Guardians of the Galaxy are returning next spring and all of the main cast will return for the sequel. That includes Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper.

Director James Gunn has said he wants to explore existing characters instead of adding a lot of new players. "We actually have less characters in 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' ... because everything is just getting too sprawling and too crazy for me in these superhero comic book movies."

At San Diego Comic-Con, it was revealed a group of space outlaws, the Ravagers, may be pursuing the Infinity Stone the Guardians have in their possession. Gunn shared an image of nine of them on social media.

Two newcomers we know are Pom Klementieff as Mantis and Kurt Russell. He’ll play Peter Quill's father. The twist? His character is Ego, a living planet.

We also learned at Comic-Con that Sylvester Stallone will be in the film briefly in an unknown role. Gunn has described it as a “very key, important role.”

"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" is coming May 5, 2017.

After 71 years, Wonder Woman will finally get her own movie next summer.

"Fast and Furious" actress Gal Gadot debuted as Diana Prince in "Batman v Superman." Critics applauded her as its saving grace. She'll be the first female Marvel or DC character to have her own solo film since Elektra in 2005.

The movie will follow Wonder Woman's origin story on her journey to becoming the mysterious woman we see in "BvS."

Here's the full movie synopsis released from Warner Bros.:

"Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny."

"Wonder Woman" is scheduled for release June 2, 2017.

Next summer, we'll be getting a new "Spider-Man" movie.

Tom Holland will be the third actor to play Spider-Man on the big screen after Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. His debut in "Captain America: Civil War" was applauded as the most accurate big-screen realization of the character yet.

"Spiderman: Homecoming" is out July 7, 2017.

The third Thor movie, "Thor: Ragnarok," will see the return of Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Loki (Tom Hiddleston), and the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), who disappeared during the events of "Avengers: Age of Ultron."

Four big actors will join the sequel. Oscar winner Cate Blanchett is confirmed as Hela, an evil goddess, while "Creed" actress Tessa Thompson will star as Valkyrie.

Also joining the fray are Jeff Goldblum as the mysterious Grandmaster and Karl Urban as the Asgardian warrior, Skurge.

"Thor: Ragnarok​" storms into theaters November 3, 2017.

"Justice League: Part One" will unite DC's heroes on November 17, 2017.

The Hollywood Reporter announced Valiant Entertainment's grey-skinned anti-hero is coming to the big screen.  

Fox recently announced two mystery dates for Marvel projects: October 6, 2017, and January 12, 2018.

Fans speculate​ they'll be either X-Force or New Mutants films. Both are offshoots of the X-Men, with different brands of mutants. However, maybe it's a date for an untitled "Deadpool" sequel.

Collider has covered the possibility of X-Force or New Mutant spinoff films.

Spider-Man's not the only new Avenger getting his own movie. Chadwick Boseman will return as Black Panther in his own movie in 2018.

First seen in "Captain America: Civil War," T'Challa is a powerful warrior and king from the fictional African nation of Wakanda.

Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o is also confirmed to star, though we're not sure of her role yet. Michael B. Jordon, who previously starred in "Fantastic Four," will also be in the film.

Marvel Studio head Kevin Feige called the film a "geopolitical action adventure" that will connect with "Avengers: Infinity War — Part I." "Black Panther" will be out February 16, 2018.

Next, Ezra Miller will star as the fastest man alive in "The Flash" out March 23, 2018.

Sony and Marvel will also collaborate on an animated Spider-Man movie too.

"The LEGO Movie" directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are writing and producing the film, so it's in good hands.

The film will supposedly revolve around Miles Morales, a half-black, half Puerto Rican teen who took over the role of Spidey from Peter Parker.

The untitled movie is set for a July 20, 2018, release.

Jason Momoa will bring a bold and brooding new look to DC's "Aquaman."

In "Batman v Superman," Aquaman is briefly seen via underwater-camera footage. The film will be in theaters July 27, 2018.

Captain Marvel, the first Marvel movie led by a female hero, is coming to theaters March 8, 2019.

Marvel revealed at Comic-Con that Oscar winner Brie Larson will star as the superheroine. She's already getting prepped for the role.

Captain Marvel, real name Carol Danvers, has super speed, strength, can fly, and fires explosive blasts from her fingertips. In the comics, she's been a part of the Avengers, A-Force, and X-Men.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will star as the villain Black Adam in DC's "Shazam" coming April 5, 2019.

Black Adam and his nemesis Shazam have been gifted abilities from ancient Egyptian (or sometimes Roman) gods, including super strength, flight, genius level intellect, and the ability to summon lightning. There's no word yet on which actor will star as Shazam.

The second of two "Justice League" movies will be released June 14, 2019.

Ray Fisher will star in the "Cyborg" solo film due out April 3, 2020. In most iterations, Cyborg is a star athlete whose body is rebuilt by his scientist father after a serious accident.

We briefly saw this in "Batman v Superman." Footage of Cyborg's resurrection is hidden on a file that Bruce Wayne gives Diana Prince.

"Green Lantern Corps," following Green Lantern and the outer-space organization that gave him his magic ring, is set for June 19, 2020. It will be live-action, but no other details have surfaced.

Ben Affleck has also confirmed a solo Batman film in the future, but Warner Bros. has yet to announce an official release date.

Affleck announced a solo Batman film at San Diego Comic-Con last year.

According to The Wrap, a "Suicide Squad" sequel is coming in 2017. Will Smith is expected to return along with director David Ayer.

A female-centric Harley Quinn spin-off is being planned as well, which could see her star alongside more of DC's female characters.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Robbie helped inspire the idea for the film and it could include the character's partner in crime Poison Ivy as well as Batgirl.

Marvel has also announced three unnamed films to be released in 2020 on May 1, July 10, and November 6.

The Guardian reports that Marvel director Joe Russo teased a shift in focus onto newer characters.

They'll most likely be sequels to Phase 3 solo films like Black Panther or Captain Marvel.

Fox announced a Gambit movie starring Channing Tatum, but it's since been delayed. Producer Simon Kinberg recently told IndieWire it may start filming next spring.

The film was originally slated for October 2016. It currently doesn’t have a release date.

Fox is also working on a sequel to "Deadpool," the surprise R-rated box-office hit.

The undated and untitled sequel will see the return of Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with a Mouth and is expected to introduce the mutant Cable, who has appeared in many comics with Deadpool.

An "Inhumans" film was announced for 2020, but was removed from the schedule after the addition of several movies to Disney's slate. Marvel Studio head Kevin Feige has said the film will reappear at some point in the future.
