(If you don’t believe us, you can check out photos of the Avengers’
new HQ at Menara TM, Bangsar here
We know by now some eager fans may have watched 'Avengers: Infinity War'
(some a couple of times, we're sure) and you’re now probably left feeling… empty and perhaps a little stunned?
It’s like you’ve totally lost your sense of direction and you don’t know what else to do after watching the highly-anticipated movie that took a whopping 10 years to make. We totally get you, because we’re going through the same thing as well.
But now’s not the time to mope around; in fact, we should all try to pick ourselves up again as there are plenty of other Marvel movies including the ones in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) coming soon!
So here are 10 other Marvel movies you should look forward to soon:
#1 Deadpool 2
Before you bash us in a long rant, we know, Deadpool isn’t in the MCU or involved in the whole Avengers shebang, but if you’ve watched the trailers or even seen his movie posters, he’s not afraid to take a jab at any of the Avengers or villains (read: Spiderman and Thanos). After the success of his first movie, of course we’re looking forward to seeing Ryan Reynolds with his snarky mouth and unapologetic antics.
: 17 May 2018
: Morena Baccarin, Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, T.J. Miller
#2 Ant-Man And The Wasp
After the whole 'Infinity War
' drama is over, everyone's favourite little superhero will get his second movie. The sequel will feature Ant-Man’s new partner, The Wasp, who is Hank Pym’s daughter. Based on the trailer, it seems that The Wasp’s suit is cooler than Ant-Man's. She gets a pair of wings which, of course, Ant-Man isn’t too thrilled about.

Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Michelle Pfeiffer
If your Spidey-senses are tingling for some reason, it’s because a villain of a similar DNA is lurking near you. 'Venom'
is a spin-off about a villain from 2007's 'Spider-Man 3
'. The film will concentrate more on Venom’s backstory. The hunky Tom Hardy plays Eddie Brock, a journalist who stumbled upon an alien lifeform from space. How ironic, the original Spider-Man also works in the same line but as a newspaper photographer. But there's a plot twist: he looks like the nice guy based on this trailer.

Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Jenny Slate
#4 Dark Phoenix
fans, if you’re dying to know more about Jean Grey, you’re in for a treat. 'Dark Phoenix
' tells the tale of young Jean Grey, which will be played by Sophie Turner, set in the 1990s. Grey will struggle with her powers and move towards the dark side as she changes into a supervillain. Gasp! So drama.
: 14 February 2019
: Sophie Turner, Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender
#5 Captain Marvel
Keep your eye on this superhero right here, because she's gonna be huge and a very important character in MCU! 'Captain Marvel'
is about Carol Danvers, who accidentally gained superpowers and becomes one of the galaxy's mightiest heroes. The movie is set in the 1990s where she will have to help save the world from an intergalactic conflict.

Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn
#6 Avengers 4 (Untitled)
We know you’re gasping in excitement because there will be another 'Avengers
' movie in one year’s time! Obviously, this installment is the continuation of 'Infinity War
' and will feature new faces – Captain Marvel, Ant-Man, and The Wasp, to name a few. What will happen in the fourth movie? Well, you’ve got to watch 'Infinity War
' and then you might get an idea on what happens next.
: 3 May 2019
: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson
This movie is even more secretive than 'Avengers: Infinity War’s
plot. Two directors have dropped out of this movie which was supposed to tell the tale of Gambit, a superhuman gifted with kinetic energy which he often uses as an explosive weapon.

#8 Spiderman Homecoming 2
Yes, the awkward but very relatable teenager who desperately wants a place in The Avengers will return to the silver screen. The plot of the sequel is kept on a tight seal so far, but one thing’s for sure; Tony Stark a.k.a Iron Man won’t make an appearance in the second installment. Hashtag sad face.
5 July 2019
: Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon
#9 The New Mutants
This movie was supposed to come out in April this year, but for some reason they pushed the date back to February 2019 and now, to another later date. The title of the movie speaks for itself as it will feature a new generation of mutants. However, these young mutants are held in some sort of hospital or research centre against their will instead of being placed in Xaviers’s School for Gifted Youngsters.
: 2 August 2019
: Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga, Henry Zaga, Blu Hunt
#10 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
Your favourite team of galaxy defenders will be back once again in a new adventure. What will happen this time around? We have no idea. But you’ll be seeing more of Mantis.
Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan
Still hoping for more? Well there are a couple more Marvel movies down the pipe but there’s no confirmation on the cast members or release dates. You can also look forward to 'Black Panther 2
', 'Black Widow
'Doctor Strange 2
', and a 'Logan
So… post 'Avengers: Infinity War
', which Marvel movie(s) are you looking forward to the most? We’re looking forward to watching 'Infinity War'
for probably another six more times.
