The fact that I actually give a fuck about what happens in the next movie is a massive testament to the quality of this one.

How long do we have to put up with rampant and bullshit speculation ?

I mean, when is the next one out ?  It's next week ?  Please tell me it's next week ?

It is what we do after we have seen a thing and we have some feeling of caring about what happens next. Feel free to go see another movie.

I agree.  The issue is the fundamental dichotomy in the mind between 'There is an easy and stupid and awful and Moffat and cheap way to get out of this' to 'This is Marvel who have astounded thus far and may in fact have something awesome'.

It's horrible.

Well the movie was filmed already, if you don't care about spoilers there are enough on set pictures that you can get a clear idea of what happens.

Those were official trailers specifically made that way to not be spoilery.

Where exactly has it been leaked that time travel is even a factor in the next movie or is this just speculation that is getting treated as fact?

The Captain Marvel movie is set in the '90's.

We have snapshots, but not a context for those snapshots.  We hope that the sum is greater than the parts seem to make them out to be - and statements by the directors seem to rule out some of the things people are assuming, but the directors could be full of crap, too.

I have faith that Marvel will close this out in a satisfactory way, but I think it will be really hard for it to end up being the best of all Marvel movies. 

Time will tell.

No matter what is in the next one it will be near impossible to try and separate this one from it, they really are a two part movie, albeit a 5 hour two part movie.  So if the next movie is even close to this one I'll definitely put "infinity war" as my top marvel movie.

Has there been any info on the sequel's title yet? I remember them saying they didn't want to announce it because it spoiled something in IW; I wonder how long before the title and trailer drop.

They hinted it will be a while... I'm guessing we learn the title after Ant-man and Wasp.

I really, really liked this. Just amazingly handled massive ensemble movie, the only bit I really didn't enjoy was the Wakandan confrontation, the whole 'two groups running at each other across an open field' bit was dumb in Cap 2 and it was dumb here. That said I felt like they handled bringing the cast together much, much more smoothly. They trusted the audience to know who everyone was, they didn't give most characters any arcs but they also brought them in much more organically. Thanos was far better handled than expected and I kind of felt a better done villain with a moral code than Killmonger.

Really it felt like a movie where they were doing things they had had a chance to test out in the previous films, where they've actually gotten better at presenting this kind of thing on the screen. One of the frustrating thing about the DC movies is the directors and producers don't seem to learn from their movies. At best they make new mistakes, at worst they manage to just do the bad shit twice as much. Marvel have honed their craft and they started pretty well.

I guess the next couple of stand alones are going to be set between this and pt.II?

Ant Man and the Wasp comes out in July, and (according to wikipedia) is set between Civil War and Infinity War. The trailer implies that Scott Lang is under house arrest, I assume because of his participation in Civil War. I speculate that the end of this movie will feature several characters getting dusted a la the end scene of Infinity War, and Hawkeye showing up to recruit Scott and Hope to help set things aright in next year's Avengers 4 movie.

Captain Marvel is set in the 90s, and is scheduled to be released in March of 2019, two months before Avengers 4. Again, this is according to wikipedia.

For those curious how Infinity War would be addressed by Agents of Shield: Season 6 will premiere Summer 2019.

So... probably exactly like the movie does.

Hey, it's not that bad.  Some of it actually reaches the heady heights of 'watchable.'

I wouldn't have believed that at Season 1.

It is kind of a non-issue... I can't imagine that fans will rush back to it after it leaves the air for a year unless they have a huge hook (Hawkeye makes an appearance, or they add a B list character to the roster type thing...)

Told you AOS would basically ignore it. Outside of two lines of dialogue there was zero interaction with the story-line.
