Upcoming 2019 Marvel Movies!

What Comes Next?

After the extremely positive reviews and raving fans following the release of Captain Marvel, we've reached a point in the Marvel Cinematic Univers (MCU) where we're not sure what lies ahead. Obviously, there are a few movies that we know will be released in the coming months, but what other films does Disney have in the works? In today's blog, we answer that question, and we share our opinion on which movies you should be most excited for! Without further ado, let's dive right in!

Avengers: Endgame (April 26th, 2019)

We have officially arrived at the end of an era. As unfortunate as this may feel, Avengers: Endgame promises to be an exceptional finale to an incredible run of films, dating back to the first installment of Iron Man. Although there have been a few bumps in the road along the way *cough* Thor 1 and 2 *cough*, there have also been some truly amazing movies that will be remembered and enjoyed for generations to come. The timely finish to this series of movies will hopefully open doors for future heroic adventures, with some new faces and some old, and will likely be a launching point for the careers of many young Marvel stars!

Dark Phoenix (June 7th, 2019)

Whether you're a fan of the X-Men movies or not, Dark Phoenix is coming to a theater near you in just a few months. The previous X-Men release, Apocolypse, was really bad. Usually, we keep our negative opinions to ourselves, our mother's taught us better than to rag on things, but Apocolypse was seriously not good. At all. However, if there's a short list of positives to pull away from the movie, it was the character development of Cyclops and Phoenix. Set in the past, while the two were just students at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, we got a glimpse of the tumultuous relationship between the young characters. If Dark Phoenix is slated to be a deeper dive into the internal struggle that Phoenix experiences while she is growing up, this movie could very well be the revival that the X-Men need to revitalize the movie series. Let's hope we're right!

Spider-Man: Far From Home (July 5th, 2019)

Honestly, we were surprised by the first Tom Holland headlined Spider-Man movie. In retrospect, we shouldn't have been, partly because we'd already gotten a taste of how great he would be in Civil War, but also because it was the first foray into Spider-Man that included legitimate ties to the MCU. Regardless of our preconceived notions, Spider-Man: Homecoming proved to be a really excellent movie. Not only were the classic "Spidey" moments outstanding, but the goofiness and endearing nature of Tom Holland proved to be such an excellent combination. The most recent trailer for Far From Home reveals that Jake Gyllenhaal will be playing the antagonist, Mysterio, and we have much higher expectations for this film than the first.
