After 10 years and 17 films (18, if you count the yet-to-be-released Black Panther), the Marvel Cinematic Universe is nearing its…. well, not its end, because that would be insane given the popularity of these films and characters, but it is certainly reaching a point of incredible change, as hinted at by the below trailer.  I know you’re all here to watch the trailer and not read me nerding out about it, but let me just say one more thing before you watch it 18 times and then head to the comments to dissect it: despite the ups and downs of the MCU over the last 10 years (and what is up and what is down seems different for everyone), there is something immensely emotionally satisfying about seeing all those films come together in something this unprecedented.

Patience is a virtue, after all.
