Though the wait from the last MCU film—July's Ant-Man and the Wasp—to the next one—March's Captain Marvel—seems excruciating, this is how long we used to have to wait for a new Marvel movie. Remember those days, when there was sometimes an entire year between Marvel movies?
2019 will be jam-packed with Marvel movies starting with Captain Marvel on March 8. This film will set up Carol Danvers as a major player in the MCU moving forward, and she'll obviously be a huge part of the plan to defeat and Thanos and reverse the effect of his snap.
Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel promises a rollicking good time as the half-human half-Kree soldier Carol Danvers, played by Oscar winner Brie Larson, is pitted against the evil Ben Mendelsohn and his Skrullin' army. There's also a youthinized Sam Jackson on hand, as well as Jude Law, Clark Gregg, and even Annette Bening lending some gravitas to the occasion.
Whatever happens in Captain Marvel is sure to have major ramifications on Avengers: Endgame, which hits theaters a mere seven weeks later. The film will also open up a whole new side of the galactic Marvel Universe, which is also sure to impact future MCU adventures.
