In the wake of superhero hits

The Avengers

and

The Amazing Spider-Man

, Marvel is already planning its next big superhero franchises–Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man.

During its panel at San Diego Comic-Con Saturday, Marvel confirmed plans for the rumored

Guardians of the Galaxy

film, set for Aug. 1, 2014, and showed a test reel for

Ant-Man

, although release dates have yet to be announced.

Both films will introduce a whole new slate of superhero characters, and tie in with some already established franchises.

The Guardians are aliens from the 31st century, each the last of their kind, who travel back in time to enlist help to battle an evil alien race that is attempting to conquer Earth's solar system. Considering that the comic book series has the Guardians travel to The Avengers’ time, the opportunities for crossover are plentiful.

Marvel’s Ant-Man is a scientist who invents a substance that allows him to change his size. Edgar Wright (

Shaun of the Dead

) has signed on to direct the film

adaptation.

Marvel also announced plans for follow-ups to

Thor

and

Captain America

.

Thor: The Dark World

is set for release Nov. 8, 2013, and

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

is scheduled for release April 4, 2014.
