While everyone's distracted with Warner Bros. and Marvel release dates, Fox has announced three of its own. The studio has placed two comic-book sequels and a mystery project on its schedule. It's really staked its claim early, because these dates run through summer 2018.

First up is another Wolverine sequel. Hugh Jackman's third solo outing will hit theaters March 3, 2017. It will be followed by Fantastic Four 2 on July 14 of that same year. Keep in mind, the first film has yet to prove itself at the box office. As a matter of fact, they haven't even begun production yet. The last time we checked, Fantastic Four was still casting its villain. Fox obviously has faith in its potential.

Last but not least is an undisclosed title that's described as "untitled Marvel project." The film will debut July 13, 2018. This could go to yet another X-Men movie or Fantastic Four project, although X-Men seems more likely. The date is two years after X-Men: Apocalypse, and only one year after Fantastic Four 2. We assumed they'd want to give the latter some breathing room.

What do you think the secret Marvel film could be?
