Next 3 Major Franchise Sequels: 'Glass,' 'Avengers 4,' 'John Wick 3'

Nov 19, 2018

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

The second installment in a new series written expressly for the big screen by J.K. Rowling, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is also the tenth film in the Harry Potter universe. Popular interest has been quite strong, as the movie has already earned more than $253 million at the box office worldwide.

Three more installments in the Fantastic Beasts series await, with the next film scheduled for release on November 20, 2020. Before that happens, what other major franchise sequels will see release in 2019? Here are three upcoming sequels that all have our eager attention.
 

'Glass'

Frankly, we didn't realize Split was a sequel until its closing moments, but we now have a fuller idea of what to expect next from the mind of filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan. The film will bring back David Dunn (Bruce Willis); Elijah Price, also known as Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson); and Kevin Wendell Crumb, also known as multiple other people (James McAvoy), as they receive treatment from a psychiatrist (Sarah Paulson) at a secured facility.

Anya Taylor-Joy (Split) will also reprise her character. We expect a lot of action and many surprises in the dramatic mystery that could wrap up the fate of the lead characters. Universal Pictures will open Glass in theaters nationwide on Friday, January 18. Read more about the movie here.
 

'Avengers 4'

Avengers: Infinity War left everyone hanging at its conclusion, so we honestly don't have any solid, confirmed information about what will happen in the fourth installment. It appears that some actors will be saying goodbye to characters they have portrayed for years. In the comic book world, however, that doesn't mean we'll never see those characters again.

Disney/Marvel will release the currently untitled Avengers sequel everywhere on Friday, May 3. Read more about the movie here.
 

'John Wick: Chapter 3'

First exploding onto the movie landscape in the fall of 2014, John Wick has become a major franchise already, grossing more than $260 million at the box office for its first two installments. While that may not sound as impressive as other franchises, it's remarkable in view of the original action film's budget, a reported $20 million. Also, the sequel made nearly twice as much as the first film, reflecting a growing interest in the professional assassin portrayed by Keanu Reeves.

Will that success continue with the third installment? Keanu Reeves, Ian McShane, Lance Reddick and Laurence Fishburne will reprise their roles, joined this time by Mark Dacascos and Anjelica Huston. Writer Derek Kolstad and director Chad Stahelski also return, so it all sounds very exciting. Lionsgate/Summit will release John Wick: Chapter 3 on Friday, May 17.
