I don't anticipate [that] this [STRIKE]to be[/STRIKE] will happen any time soon.
I wonder whether this is going to [STRIKE]be[/STRIKE] happen any time soon.

See above. You seem to think that "to be happen" is a verb. It is not. The verb is simply "to happen".

What about the following sentence?
I don't anticipate/expect this will happen until 2018.
Is the next sentence wrong?
I don't expect this to happen until 2018.
