Man, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige wasn’t kidding when he said Marvel had mapped out their Marvel Cinematic Universe up through 2028.

While no titles have been revealed, tonight Marvel announced the dates for five new films with little information other than the company is clearly and confidently putting stakes in the ground for their future blockbusters.

What will the films be? Well, the company does love their mysterious placeholders. We do already know the third “Captain America” film lands on May 6, 2016 (the same date as “Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice) and following that are more unknowns: one on July 8, 2016 and another May 5, 2017. With the addition of the just-announced placeholders, this would mean Marvel will be releasing three films in 2017. Of course that's the year Warner Bros. plans to launch their "Justice League" movie—talk about boldly throwing down the gauntlet.

Many have speculated and assumed that one of those already announced dates is earmarked for “Dr. Strange” (which has a director and will probably announce its lead at Comic-Con) and the following summer 2017 date feels like “Avengers 3.” But beyond that for the summer 2017 through May 2019? Black Panther? "Guardians Of the Galaxy 2"? Solo films for other Avengers like Black Widow, Quicksilver and The Scarlett Witch or Hawkeye? At this point your speculation would be as good as ours, so have at it. New dates below (with previously announced dates for context) and maybe if you're lucky, more info will be revealed in San Diego next week.

: Did a contract become finalized that wasn't signed before? Nope. What happened was earlier today, during the announcement of their reshuffled "Spider-Man" release dates, Sony quietly dropped their "Amazing Spider-Man 4" date, originally set for May 4, 2018. Quickly realizing a prime, summer opening slot was now open, Marvel stepped and planted the flag on the date with another mystery movie.
