It's an exciting time to be a Marvel fan. In addition to the publisher's legendary comic books, Marvel movies are being churned out faster than ever before. Between the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the X-Men series, 2019 will be plentiful with movies, and there's a whole lot to look forward to.

Fans will get to see Brie Larson star in the first Captain Marvel film, which will open up new plots and characters for the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase Four. The most highly-anticipated Marvel film of 2019 is the as-yet-untitled Avengers 4, which will be the final movie in the MCU's Phase Three, premiering after Captain Marvel. The first film of Phase Four, Spider-Man: Far From Home, will also debut next year—and will see Tom Holland reprise his role as Peter Parker.

Two X-Men movies will hit theaters next year, beginning with the Sophie Turner-led film Dark Phoenix, which follows Jean Grey as she develops powers that turn out to be too dark for her own good. The second will be The New Mutants, which will be the 13th film in the X-Men series, starring Game of Thrones's Maisie Williams, Stranger Things's Charlie Heaton, and Split's Anya Taylor-Joy.

Here's the upcoming release schedule:

Captain Marvel: March 8, 2019
​Avengers 4: ​May 3, 2019
​Dark Phoenix: ​June 7, 2019
​Spider-Man: Far From Home:  July 5, 2019​
The New Mutants: ​August 2, 2019

As of now, only Captain Marvel and Dark Phoenix have debuted trailers, but fans have high hopes that the Avengers 4 trailer and title will be released any day now. In October, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige reportedly confirmed the first trailer would drop by the end of the year.

It’s no surprise that some fans are having a hard time dealing with the fact that Game of Thrones is over. The show ran for eight seasons, and became a huge part of fans's lives and Sunday night routines. Moreover, since the season 8 premiere first aired, fans haven’t been too thrilled with the trajectory of the show, and it has only gotten worse. (The final episode in the series scored the lowest rating in the show’s history on IMDb).

But if you’re having a hard time wrapping your mind around the end of Game of Thrones, or just want to vent, there's a counseling service here just for you. CNN reports that if you go to Bark.com, a UK-based online marketplace, you can find a Game of Thrones counselor who will listen to your every qualm about the show. "The professionals will help them digest their feelings and interpretation of the show, which could range from anger and confusion to sadness and grief," the service description reads.

"We watch them to escape our daily lives and immerse ourselves into the 'unknown,'" Lynette, a counselor from Bark.com, said in a statement regarding people's TV show obsessions. "This is the very reason why we sometimes become addicted to watching them, the stories they tell become part of our identity."

There’s options of booking a 30-minute or 60-minute session, which range from $25 to $51. Fans can choose from a face-to-face session, group session, or online, and can specify which specific problems they’re having regarding the show.

New Coke is Making a Comeback Thanks to Stranger Things

In what was considered one of the biggest consumer product marketing blunders of all time, the Coca-Cola Company upset devotees of their signature beverage by introducing New Coke in 1985. Sweeter and smoother than the original, people practically revolted over the change, and the drink eventually disappeared from shelves.

In 2019, New Coke is not only resurfacing—it might turn out to be one of the company's savviest marketing moves to date.

CNN reports that Coca-Cola will be producing 500,000 cans of New Coke in collaboration with Netflix to promote season 3 of Stranger Things, the 1980s-set paranormal drama. Cans will be featured on the show in a kind of retro product placement.

Fans can look for the cans online, which will be offered as a free gift with the purchase of two special Coca-Cola Classic or Coke Zero Sugar glass bottles with Stranger Things artwork beginning Thursday. Special vending machines will also be set up in major cities, and visitors to Atlanta's World of Coca-Cola can purchase the product there, too.

The company is using the exact same recipe for New Coke that got them in hot water back in 1985. For many, it will be their first chance to sample the drink that anti-New Coke activist and retiree Gay Mullins described as being "unbelievably wimpy" and tasting like Pepsi (a comment meant to be derogatory). Originally intended to replace Coca-Cola Classic, the drink was eventually rebranded Coke II and sold through 2002.

Coca-Cola anticipates demand will exceed their 500,000 can allotment, which means you're likely to see them pop up on eBay before long.

The new season of Stranger Things premieres July 4.
