The cat is out of the bag with Avengers: Infinity War. We now feel like we can no longer exist. 

But, hold that thought, because Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has only just begin. And it doesn't end there. There's also the entire multiverse that exists independent of the MCU. Infinity War is the tip of a gigantic iceberg. And we cannot even begin to imagine what awaits us in and beyond Phases 3 and 4; it's like the gift that keeps on giving! 

Here's all the Marvel magic you can look forward to in the increasingly near future.

It was about time Black Widow got her own movie and in January, Marvel got Jac Schaeffer on board to get the script in place for the movie.
