I know these projects are already in the works and both of these iconic Avengers are in Avengers Age of Ultron hitting theaters 1 May 2015. Here's what I mean: What if the movies came out earlier? Their titles now are going to be post-Avengers Age of Ultron since they come out later.
If my idea happened, we'd have two more Marvel films. Not only that, but we would have black and female leads. I know 3 movies a year is stretching it, which is why this is one of those "Hhhmmmm I wonder what would have been if this happened....""
It goes like this: say both of these projects were being worked on since 2012 and finished filming in early 2014 and Marvel Studios somehow prevented any leak of any kind, any rumors, any mention of this. Then at San Diego Comic-Con, they announce:
Ms. Marvel - 15 November 2014 and Black Panther - 3 April 2015
You know how cool that would have been?! That way, we already have the heroes known to the general audience before they come out in [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](movie:293035).
I'll do a fan synopsis for each movie.
U.S. Air Force pilot Major Carol Danvers and her wing man are shot down by an 0-8-4 (object of unknown origin). Her wing man is dead and their fighters are toast. She finds herself staring at the 0-8-4 and it is massive. It's a Kree Sentry and she knows her bullets won't do anything so she returns to the fighters and rigs them to blow. She takes her wing man's dog tags and moves the body. The explosion from the fighters didn't destroy the sentry, but some weird energy was emitted from it, A LOT of weird energy. Being exposed to it, she is rendered unconscious. When the fighters were destroyed, Lt Col James Rhodes travels to their last known coordinates. He sent there in his War Machine armor (He had Tony repaint it) and sees the object. With some of the work done by Carol already, he finishes the job and destroys the Kree Sentry and brings Carol to safety. He was given orders to bring her to a specific coordinates.
That's what I have for her origin story. Not the whole plot just yet. Just how she gets her powers.
As for Mar-Vell? He should be a former Kree spec ops now Kree scientist sent to Earth by the Supreme Intelligence to study humans. He would have been there since Iron Man and over the years he's seen Thor, Captain America, Hulk and of course the Battle of New York. He reports all of these findings in hopes of sparing the human race, however the Supreme Intelligence disagrees and wants Earth in the Kree Empire. Mar-Vell is smart about warning the humans though. He finds Rhodes and tells him the deal. He knows just the place to take her. He knows in reality that S.H.I.E.L.D. would do a better job of keeping her safe so as far as the military is confirmed, Carol Danvers is MIA.
The place he takes her doesn't mean much to the general audience, but to fans who watch [Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.](series:722469), they will be wild in the theater.
This movie needs to be filled with cosmic Easter eggs though and Idk bout villains and end credits yet. Maybe next article.
T'Chaka, T'Challa's father, is murdered by Ulysses Klaw and Wakanda comes under control of the Man-Ape. T'Challa saw this happen. He fled to the outside world furthering his education and martial arts. He returns to Wakanda in turmoil. He is angered upon his return. He also sees the vibranium being sold. He couldn't save all of the vibranium that he saw being sold, but he tracked it. He knows that he must reclaim the throne and restore order to his country. Even though Man-Ape now rules Wakanda, he doesn't know there the Panther's Lair is. So T'Challa sneaks in and plans return to the throne. Now in his Black Panther gear, he steps into the arena. "Man-Ape! Your tyranny ends here! Face the [Black Panther](movie:9047)!"
That's not the whole movie though. Still have to build on him a lot. Just a few ideas I had in mind.
