5. Female Thor / Thor Girl
First off, I have nothing against female superheroes. In fact, I'm writing a comic book series (no, it isn't public, I'm just writing the scripts for the series and they'll probably never go anywhere so...) right now about a female superhero.
Anyway, after Thor runs his course in the Marvel Cinematic Universe -- NEVER should Thor Girl be introduced. Or at least not more than an easter egg.
Why? Because it'd be to please the whiney fans who want to change the major components of the actual Marvel Comics when they are put on the big screen. Or they want something that'd be extremely controversial to change in the first place, and probably wouldn't help the box office income IF it did happen.
What has Thor Girl achieved in the comics? A little bit here and there, but not enough that I'd be interested in seeing a film adaptation of. There are MANY more important characters that can be used and SHOULD be used. Thor Girl is not one of them.
4. Miles Morales
First off, I am NOT racist. I just don't want to see Miles Morales ever become Spider-Man quite frankly because he was only created for political correctness. When Obama was elected in 2008, Marvel made Miles Morales to show they could introduce diversity in their comics and make change as well. Although this is a cool story and all, NEVER should anyone associate Spider-Man with Miles Morales. Spider-Man is to Peter Parker as Batman is to Bruce Wayne. Even though Dick Grayson eventually became Batman as Miles Morales eventually became Spider-Man, it's just not the true identity of the hero.
And for those who just want Miles Morales for racial diversity, the Marvel Cinematic Universe does not need too much work for that to happen. But they should NOT cause a controversial change like making Spider-Man black in order to have this. You can't change the fact that many people would actually flip if Spider-Man was black. I'm not racist, I'm just being truthful. Wanna risk hurting the results of a film box office wise? Go ahead, it isn't my choice. (Not that it's yours, either.)
Eventually, after a good amount of Peter Parker films, Miles Morales may be suitable to take over. Although I'd personally refrain from doing this as Miles Morales doesn't have too many stories for him that I for one think are good. I wouldn't see Morales succeeding on the big screen the same way Parker does. A Morales film wouldn't be until a long time, however, so I'll end this here.
Also, since it looks like Asa Butterfield - a white actor - will take the role of Peter Parker, it doesn't look like Spider-Man will be black.
3. Natasha Romanoff and Bruce Banner having a "thing"
It wasn't that it was bad, it's just too random and unlikely to be real. First off, I find it hard to believe that Bruce Banner would "get over" Betty Ross like he had done in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
In the MCU, Betty Ross and Bruce Banner met in the year 1996 (may have been 1994, I don't remember) After Banner became the Hulk in the mid-2000s, he put Ross in a coma before going on the run from the General; who wanted to use Banner's results as a weapon. Since he went on the run, Betty was always on his mind. The love was strong in the Incredible Hulk between the two. They had truly portrayed love in this movie. After Bruce fled to Colombia at the end of the Incredible Hulk, it is assumed he had not spoken to Ross ever since.
In the first Avengers movie, Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow is scared SHITLESS by Banner.
In the second Avengers movie, Natasha Romanoff suddenly "comes onto" Banner like they've been crushing on each other for years. And it was extremely fake anyways. Of course, when Natasha Romanoff tells a co-worker that they should have showered with her it's all fun and games, but when I do it I get sued for sexual harrassment!
Anyways, General Ross is going to return in next years Captain America: Civil War. Maybe Betty Ross will be mentioned. Maybe Betty Ross will one day reappear in the MCU. I don't know. But leave a comment and tell me what you think.
2. Dismissal of the Hulk solo films
While we are still on the topic of the Hulk, let's address the situation with the Hulk's solo films.
Yes, I know not everyone loves the Hulk films. Although, may I remind you there is only ONE Hulk film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. (Possibly a second on its way, based off the ending of the new Avengers movie) A lot of people don't like the concept of Banner be chased by the military. I facepalm at this. Obviously, a second Hulk film would not use a military chase as the basis for its story. We already know Hulk is tracked by SHIELD (although, if I remember correctly they cannot track him now after the events of the you-know-what) where ever he goes. The military isn't going to be tracking him down. It just doesn't work like that.
Anyway, we already know General Ross will reappear in Captain America: Civil War. That's awesome. The Abomination was suppose to return in Age of Ultron but he did not ultimately return. (Yeah, his neck wasn't snapped at the end of the Incredible Hulk, I thought it was but whatever I know now) The Leader, AKA Samuel Sterns, is still out there. (The comics and the television programs in the MCU are not too "official" when it comes to the films. Marvel has already acknowledged Agent Coulsen's death is official in the MCU despite him returning in Agents of Shield. So that sort of makes Agents of Shield "non-canon" despite being canon anyways. So it's safe to assume that the comics and one-shots are not going to be decisive on whether or not the Leader is incarcerated in the MCU.)
Anyways, I for one hope to see the Hulk get his own solo film in the near future. Tell me what you think!
1. Doc Ock becoming Peter Parker and Spider-Man
Please, a million times NO! If this happens, I'll lose all faith in humanity. Although, I deem this a possibility that will never become a reality.
Seriously, the Superior Spider-Man series sucked.
