Where Do We Go After Thanos?
Now that we're getting a lot of a Thanos push in the Marvel movies recently(Guardians, Avengers 2, etc.) and everyone seems to be asking, "What will Marvel Studios do once The Avengers defeat Thanos?" well I'm here to give ideas as to what Marvel could possibly do with the cinematic universe after the epicness that Phase three is going to be. So without further ado, lets get right into my ideas(NOTE: these are just my opinions, so if you don't agree with them, no hate please. But please leave your opinions in the comments below! I'd love to hear them)
Idea #1: Bring Back Ultron
I totally know what you're thinking, "Bring Ultron back already? We just had him in Avengers: Age of Ultron and he was defeated". Well these ideas don't necessarily have to be our Phase 4. This could be Phase 5 or 6 for all we know. But anyways, lets get down to it.
So here's how I think this could work.
By the time we're into like, Phase 5 or 6 or maybe even 4 for all we know. Tony Stark will probably be gone. Lots of people are assuming that once Avengers 3 is over, we will get no more Tony Stark and maybe a bit more of Rhodey as our Iron Man type character in the Marvel movies. So how will Ultron come back? By pleasing the fans of course!
Give fans what they wanted since Avengers: Age of Ultron was originally released. Have Ant Man create Ultron. Let's say Ant Man or preferably, an older Hank Pym, finds some remains of Ultron and thinks that he can create a better Ultron and do better than Tony Stark ever did. So he tries to recreate Ultron from the ground up using his own brainwaves this time, thinking this Ultron will be a better Ultron than Tony's.
A lot of people's complaints with [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](tag:293035) is that Ultron wasn't as menacing and a bit more "jokey". Well that's because Tony created him. If Hank creates him we could get a totally new Ultron that's just as menacing and scary as in the comics. And maybe the design can be totally different and more comic-like, sort of like in the picture below:
Idea #2: Norman Osborn
Norman Osborn has always been somewhat a threat to The Avengers in the comics. He formed the Dark Avengers, which would be a great way to bring the Dark Reign storyline onto film.
We'd also get a proper Iron Patriot from the comics(another thing fans complained about with Iron Man 3). Norman wouldn't even need to form the Dark Avengers yet and maybe he could just steal or build his own Iron Patriot armor! It'd basically be the Avengers v.s. the Iron Patriot! But of course, we'd have to upgrade the Iron Patriot A LOT if it were to take on the Avengers. But still, wouldn't that be sweet?
The Sinister Six
This would be a great way to bring our new boy, Spider-Man to the forefront of this amazing cinematic universe. We could introduce all of the villains in the Spider-Man films and maybe some in the other films. Then have all of the villains come together to kill Spider-Man, but this time, Spider-Man would have the Avengers on his side.
Imagine it! The Avengers v.s. The Sinister Six, with Spider-Man leading the time for the first time. An epic showdown between two of the coolest villain and superhero teams in comics. This could also come after the Norman Osborn story I wrote about above ^^^^ and maybe even have him lead/assemble the team.
Idea #3: Scarlet Witch
Some of you who don't read the comics may be wondering, "but I thought that Scarlet Witch was a good guy?" Well, she is. But she wasn't always a good guy. There are some stories(such as House of M) where she goes coo coo for coco puffs and tries to kill everyone.
Basically, we could just do a House of M story but obviously altered for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Maybe instead of "No more mutants" she could say something like "No more heroes" or "No more super powers". Or maybe not even follow the House of M story but have Scarlet Witch go insane like in the House of M story and the Avengers have to fight and stop her.
Idea #4: Baron Zemo(Or the Red Skull) and the Masters of Evil
Baron Zemo and the Masters of Evil have been enemies of our pals the Avengers for longer than comic fans can remember. Obviously we would probably not have the team from the comics but we could for sure have a team like this: Baron Zemo, Red Skull(possibly leading the team depending on how Marvel wants to portray them), Abomination(he's frozen in the arctic somewhere right now so we could for sure bring him back), Loki, etc. I think you get the gist of the kind of team I am getting at.
Well, thank you all for taking the time to read my article. I hope you enjoyed my thoughts on what I think the Marvel Cinematic Universe could be in the next couple phases. Have your own ideas? Sound off in the comments below and I'll check them all out!
