12. Black Panther 2 (TBD)
Black Panther may be dead in Avengers: Infinity War but Wakanda lives on. Maybe one of the two — Okoye and M’Baku — will lead the troop. “I think Shuri’s astounding, and you’ll see much more of her in our universe,” Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige had said.

She hasn’t always had that possibility.”
14. Doctor Strange 2 (TBD)
For long, Marvel was reluctant to confirm a Doctor Strange sequel, and now we know why — because the charcter disintegrates in Infinity War. Although Marvel has not officially confirmed the film, director Scott Derrickson had earlier confirmed that they have a concept and villain for the second movie. Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) is expected to play a major role in the movie.

Logan had not only received great appreciation from fans but critics as well. With that, the movie had also got an Oscar nomination for best screenplay.

That would be exciting to see, right?
