Generally tends to be two releases for Marvel/DC stuff, Early start of the year and then mid-Summer. This year it's March and June basically, so the GOTG and X-men sets will hit shelves in June. No exact date as yet though.
Eurobricks recently got some hi-res shots of these sets as they've become available for pre-order on some Amazon sites, including Amazon.co.uk (where they still bear their generic "Marvel 1" "X-men 1" names.
