What can you expect from Captain Marvel 2? Carol Danvers swooped into theaters, helmet-mohawk and all, in Captain Marvel, and while she's set to return soon in Avengers: Endgame, you should also be looking forward to the sequel.
Directed by Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden, Captain Marvel serves as an origin story for the Marvel Cinematic Universe's most powerful superhero yet, as she teams up with a young Nick Fury to stop an invasion of Earth by the shape-shifting Skrulls. At the end of the movie, Carol flies off to help the Skrulls find a new home, and will return over two decades later to help the Avengers defeat Thanos.
There's a lot of ground for a potential Captain Marvel 2 to cover, either exploring Carol's life after her solo movie helping the Skrulls, her continued fight against Yon-Rogg and the Kree, or even the aftermath of Thanos in Avengers: Endgame. Here's everything we know so far about the sequel.

Captain Marvel 2 Isn't Confirmed (Yet)
With the movie itself newly released and Marvel Studios carefully keeping its Phase Four plans under wraps, Captain Marvel 2 has yet to be officially announced. However, a sequel is all but inevitable, since Marvel solo movies are always planned as their own franchises. The only solo movie in the MCU that hasn't had a sequel is The Incredible Hulk, and that's due to rights complications with Universal - something that Captain Marvel obviously doesn't have to worry about. The only other thing that could potentially prevent a sequel heading into development would be a truly disastrous box office take, but based on current projections, Captain Marvel doesn't have anything to fear. You can expect to see Captain Marvel 2 among the lineup of upcoming MCU Phase Four movies, along with Doctor Strange 2, Black Panther 2, and Guardians of the Galaxy 3.
Captain Marvel 2 Wouldn't Release Until 2022 (At The Earliest)
Marvel movies typically have a three-year development cycle, and with an increasingly crowded slate, fans shouldn't expect to see Captain Marvel 2 in theaters before 2022 at the very earliest. The last time an MCU franchise managed less than a three-year turnaround between movies was when Captain America: Civil War released just two years after Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and since then Marvel has added four more franchises to the mix (Captain Marvel, Ant-Man, Black Panther and Doctor Strange), with more on the way. As prolific as the studio is, Marvel can only release so many movies every year, and the first couple of years of Phase Four are likely already filled up with movies that have been in development for a while, like The Eternals.
Captain Marvel 2 Has No Trailer Yet (Obviously)
It would be very impressive if there was a trailer for Captain Marvel 2 immediately after the release of the first movie, but unfortunately that's not the case. We'll update this page when a trailer does become available.
