I was planning on writing another DC related article however with the big Marvel news Im gonna have to put that on hold. The phase three movie line-up has been announced with a blast of fan reactions. We got Civil War arriving in 2016, Thor: Ragnarok coming in 2017 along with the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel. As well as that we also have some new characters movies including Ant-Man, Dr Strange, Black Panther, Captain Marvel and the Inhuman's. And to wrap all of that up we have a two part [The Avengers: Infinity War](movie:738027) coming. Now with it being confirmed that the Avengers line-up will change at the end of Age of Ultron, I've been speculating who will join the team in order to take on Thanos. Im sure we'll see some familiar faces on the team come 2018 but were also gonna have some new members.
So without further due, here's my list of Avengers:
CAPTAIN AMERICA / BUCKY BARNES
I have to be honest, Captain America is kind of the centre of the team. The leader, and without Steve Rogers the Avengers probably wouldn't of got through most of the wars the team faced in the comics. Thing is with Civil War being the next Captain America movie I can see Roger's meeting his fate. This does go down a spoiler root with what Im saying here but that doesn't mean it will be true. Im only saying this because its been said that key members of the Avengers won't be in the next instalment after Age of Ultron. Cap and Iron Man seem to be main targets and with Civil War things are gonna get pretty serious. It is my believing that Steve Rogers will be killed off at the end of the Civil War movie, and Winter Soldier will take on the identity of Captain America. It happened in the comics and the way how I see it, the Avengers need a Captain America.
I can't see why [Doctor Strange](movie:559685) wouldn't become a member of the Avengers for the Infinity War movies. He's a powerful character and would make an excellent edition to the team. His own movie will be release in November 2016 with Benedict Cumberbatch being a near done deal to sign on for the character.
Chadwick Boseman has been cast to take on [Black Panther](movie:9047) and will first appear in the Civil War movie. He will then get a solo movie in November 2017. This is another new character that fans have anticipated for a while now and it would be a shame to not see him become a member of the Avengers for the Infinity War movies.
Marvel's first female to get a lead movie will arrive in July 2018. One thing thats got me wondering is why she's not called Ms. Marvel as in the comics [Captain Marvel](movie:949779) was a male character. But then Captain Marvel does sound better and it would probably market the character better. But anyway as her movie comes in-between Infinity War part one and two, she'll probably be a later recruit. My guess is she'll join the team in part two, although she could be introduce through part one of the Infinity War.
SCARLETT WITCH & QUICKSILVER
Now its obvious these characters will turn good by the end of Age of Ultron. These two characters have had some history with the Avengers, especially Scarlett Witch so Im almost positive these two will become new members of the team.
Another character like Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver that will be making his debut in Age of Ultron. A character that will start of bad but eventually turn good as most of us would suspect. I look forward to seeing him in Age of Ultron and hopefully he'll join the team by 2018.
Considering there was no Hulk movie confirmed with the phase three line-up I can't think where else the Hulk would be. With whats to happen in [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](movie:293035), I know things aren't going to go too well with Hulk but these Avengers movies are the only movies he has at the moment. I also doubt they'd want the Hulk to miss out on the action in the Infinity War movies.
I'd be quite disappointed if they left Thor out on this one. I know some pretty serious stuff goes down in the Ragnarok comic but I hope Thor makes it to the Infinity War movies. He's just one of those characters that I can't really imagine not having a part in such a galactic event. But then saying that he doesn't need to be a member of the Avengers to still have a part. He could join forces with the Guardians of the Galaxy or the Inhuman's. But I personally think he should stay with the Avengers.
BLACK WIDOW & HAWKEYE
It is unclear to me how these two characters will play a part in the Infinity War and you never know either Hawkeye or [Black Widow](movie:1070824)'s story could end after Civil War but who knows. If they make it past the third Captain America movie then they'll probably show up in the new Avengers team. I know its not official that these two characters will be in the Civil War movie but I got a feeling they will be showing up in it.
Now Im sure the Guardians and the Inhuman's will play a part in the Infinity War however these still are Avengers movies so they probably won't get as much screen time. I believe the Guardians will join Adam Warlock and his crusade but Drax on the other hand I think will join the Avengers team. Its been rumoured this could happen and the way how I see it, if anyones gonna put an end to Thanos, it could very well be Drax. So if Drax were to be a member of the Avengers it would mean more screen time for him.
Little is known about this characters interactions with the MCU but he is getting a movie next year. [Ant-Man](movie:9048) was also one of the founding members of the Avengers in the comics so he could very well join the team for the Infinity War movies.
So there's the Avengers line-up I think we'll be seeing in the Infinity War movie. I haven't included Iron Man on this list because I really don't know where his character will go next after Civil War. Though he is Marvel's most popular at the moment so I wouldn't be surprised if he does show up. He is contracted for a third Avengers movie, but then the same can be said for Chris Evan's Captain America.
Question is will all these characters make the team. Im sure they'll all play a part in the Infinity War but will they all join the Avengers team or will some of them separate and have different purposes in the movies. Some of these characters could join the forces with the Inhuman's, Nova Corps, and the Guardians. Remember the Inhuman's and the Guardians may be fighting the same war but they could be scattered across the universe for all we know. Gives us your opinions below and who you think should make the new team.
