After 11 years, 21 movies, and billions of dollars, the Marvel Cinematic Universe shows no signs of slowing down.
“Captain Marvel” hit theaters over the weekend and is breathing new life into what has been a lackluster box officeso far in 2019. “Avengers: Endgame” is also projected to break records at the box office when it’s released next month, and “Spider-Man: Far From Home” comes to theaters in July.
But a lot will change for the MCU after this year.
Disney, which owns Marvel, will own the film rights to the X-Men and the Fantastic Four after merging with Fox. The producer Kevin Feige has said he expects that to happen within the first six months of this year, at which point he’ll get the green light to develop projects with those characters.
