Every new report that we receive concerning Captain Marvel seems to double down on the notion that it will break every mold in the comic book movie genre. Not only will the upcoming Brie Larson-fronted superhero flick represent Marvel's first major female-oriented project, but it will also move the action back to the 1990s to have her fight the Skrulls alongside a younger Nick Fury. That's why we haven't seen any hints of Carol Danvers showing up in Infinity War yet; her first movie is a period piece, which opens up an fascinating new corner for the MCU.

However, the possibilities don't end with Captain Marvel (which is currently set for a March 8, 2019 release date). The Marvel Cinematic Universe has plenty of existing properties and characters that could easily transition to their own period piece solo films, and we think it's time to give them a shot. On that note, we have put together a list of potential Marvel films that could work as period pieces in the vein of Captain Marvel or _Captain America: The First Avenger _(the MCU has a lot of Captains). Check out our list, and let us know what you want to see in the comments section below!

Hank Pym Ant-Man

Ant-Man 3 - The 1960s

One of the most brilliant creative decisions made throughout the entirety of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was the choice for the Ant-Man franchise to have its cake and eat it too. By opting for the Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) incarnation of the hero, Peyton Reed's Ant-Man gave us an origin story, while also establishing the more seasoned and experienced Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) as a much older version of the character. The flashback sequences of Ant-Man are some of the coolest that we have ever seen in a Marvel film, and the greater implication is that superheroes like Ant-Man existed in decades that these films haven't seen yet. Depending on how much (or how little) of Pym's backstory Ant-Man and The Wasp gives us, we would love to see an entire solo movie dedicated to his younger years before the suit wore him out.
