Marvel is still teasing more surprises. Ryan Penagos, Marvel's VP & Creative Executive of New Media, tweeted a suspicious GIF of Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith in Men in Black: "Imagine what you'll know tomorrow."

Obviously that could mean anything or nothing at all, but Marvel could do with another Avengers: Infinity War trailer and some brand new footage. It would also be smart to release news or footage from another upcoming Marvel property to generate more hype about the ways Infinity War will affect the MCU moving forward. Fans expect major character deaths in Infinity War, the biggest superhero teamup film of the last decade. There's no doubt Marvel Studios will go all out with its marketing campaign.

The Infinity War sequel marks the end of Phase 3, and Sony will actually kick off Marvel's Phase 4 with Tom Holland's Peter Parker in Spider-Man 2 on July 5, 2019. Sony also has Venom planned for October 5, 2018 and Silver & Black for Feb. 8, 2019, but neither has been confirmed to be part of the larger MCU.

It's unclear if previously announced release dates for 2020, May 1 and Nov. 6, are intact given the new date changes. As for which seven films Marvel is teasing, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is most likely to take a 2020 release date since screenwriter James Gunn said so on Twitter. Other than a Black Panther and Captain Marvel sequel, there's really no telling what's in store through 2022. Any ideas? Let us know in the comments.
