Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is still in theaters, but that most definitely hasn’t stopped Disney from pushing the next Marvel movie on the list. Superhero movie fans may have some complaints about Phase 5, but it hasn’t stopped them from providing the series with enough support to keep the movies from cranking out. So which Marvel movie is next in theaters?
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has been called the “best Marvel movie” in Phase 5. With its emotional scenes, sad ending, and deliciously evil villain, it was leagues ahead of the most recent Dr. Strange and Ant-Man movies. What should fans expect next from Marvel?

It’s difficult to say why Captain Marvel’s movie “flopped” compared to other Marvel films that came out around the same time. Some point to sexism since it had the same predictable action, flimsy plotlines, and bad humor as every other recent Marvel film. But others noted that Captain Marvel just felt much too egotistical and one-dimensional, a Mary Sue without any flaws. This can make for a pretty dull experience.
Either way, Brie Larson is back as Captain Marvel in The Marvels. After investigating a mysterious wormhole, Captain Marvel will team up with Monica Rambeau and Ms. Marvel. The trio will swap places with each other every time they use their powers, creating a lot of comedic moments and chaos. But will the ongoing silly jokes and girl power themes have a better impact on the Marvel crowd this time around?
