As a massive fan of the MCU, I only want to see the franchise consistently improve with every movie. But for that to happen, there are some things that have to happen that not everyone will be happy with!
Some Serious Deaths
I will start off with an unpopular choice. Main characters, need to die, forever! There is clearly a transition period for new characters entering the MCU in phase 3, and actors in Phase 2 & 3 running out their contracts, this means there is an opportunity for the characters to end on a high. Plus with [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](movie:293035) and Civil War on the horizon, two storyline with expected high death tolls, this is the perfect chance for fans and cast to be satisfied with the characters that have been made. Now who would die is another question completely, but people need to, or else we would be in danger of suffering a crowded infinity war, even if it is split into two parts!
Phase 1 & 2 have been fun for sure, and we also have Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (Which will be nothing but fun!), but now I feel because we have Age of Ultron, [Thor: Ragnarok](movie:956858), Civil War, and Infinity War, we need to have some darker story-lines, simply because it fits in better with the story-lines that have been in the comic books, now I am not saying that it has to be as dark as DC, the lightness should be there for balance, but the movies need to be darker than previously executed.
Especially for [The Avengers: Infinity War](movie:738027), the stakes need to be so high, that fans will be screaming in their seats! In order for Phase 3 to be better than the two before it, the stakes in almost all of its have films have to higher than before. Maybe Captain Marvel and Inhumans can start out with fairly low stakes given they will have more films after. But Civil War, GOTG 2 and Infinty War, we want earth shattering stakes!
So what do you think? Is there anything that needs to be added on this list?
