Get ready for lots of Marvel movie news later this month!

Collider reports that Marvel has announced its presentation schedule for San Diego Comic-Con International 2013 - taking place July 18 - 21. As the headline says, we'll get a sneak peek at a pair of Marvel flicks - 2013's Thor: The Dark World (opening November 8) and 2014's Captain America: The Winter Soldier (April 4).

It's expected that Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige and cast members will present details on the 2 movies above as well as other upcoming flicks. One of those other movies will probably be Ant-Man, which is targeted for a November 6, 2015 release.

But wait, there's more! Sure, getting the deets on the Cap and Thor flicks is cool, but what about Marvel's long-range plans for its Phase Three movies? That's what we really want to know, right?

Note: Just in case you need a refresher - We're currently in the midst of Phase Two of Marvel's Cinematic Universe, which kicked off with Iron Man 3 and will thunder to a climax in The Avengers 2 on May 1, 2015.

The official Marvel Comic-Con announcement states that when Feige and company gather on July 20, we'll get -

“...an inside look at the ever-expanding Marvel cinematic universe.”

The speculation is that the above statement refers to the 3 unnamed Phase Three Marvel movies slated for 2016 and 2017 releases. One of those unnamed flicks is probably going to be Doctor Strange, while the other 2 could be the long-awaited feature film debut of Black Panther, as well as The Avengers 3. Right now, it's anybody's guess, but those are the leading candidates to fill the opening day slots in 2016 and 2017.

What do you think of Marvel's Comic-Con plans? Do you think the studio will pull a shocker and reveal a movie no one was expecting?
