In July, Ant-Man will cap off Phase 2 of The Marvel Cinematic Universe and presumably set up Phase 3, the one with Ragnarok, Civil War, Infinity Wars, and all of that good stuff. However, I've been wondering about the end of Phase 3. You may say that Marvel won't go on, but I think that it will. By the time the credits of The Inhumans are rolling, Thanos will most probably be defeated and The Avengers we know and love will probably be at peace. Or so they think.
Enter Kang The Conqueror
The credits to Inhumans come to an end. We are staring at Earth, ravaged and destroyed by war. A lone figure stands in the debris looking at the remains of the planet. The man states that he has a mission to prevent this future. However, the only way to prevent it, is the extinction of The Avengers. Kang the Conqueror turns his face to the screen and lets out a frown. Then zap, a flash of light and he's gone. Scene ends.
(A little too cheesy? Probably, but you know your inner comic fan would scream in joy if something like that happened.)
What Would His Inclusion Mean for Phase 4?
Some of you might be scratching your head thinking why Hulk has wings. However, there is a good chance that a lot of you know exactly who these children are. These are The Young Avengers.
They were formed by Iron Lad (Not Pictured) to battle his future self, which is Kang of course. They are all interesting characters and can be easily cast and kept in for several years with Marvel. This would be an interesting team to see on screen, but I think they could have a solo movie one time and be done with it. Of course, Kang will continue to battle The Avengers until the end of Phase 4. These Avengers would be new, consisting of Spider-Man, Black Panther, Vision, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Captain America (Bucky), Thor (Jane Foster) and Ronin (Hawkeye). These in my opinion are the new Avengers for Phase 4, and Kang's primary enemy.
But enough about them, let's talk Kang himself.
The story with Kang is, he is a time traveler. He has several story lines, but I would go in a different direction with him. After battling the New Avengers (That's what I'm calling them) he could cause some sort of rip in time, making different events occur. These different events would be separate movies, like World War Hulk, or a timeline with the original Guardians of the Galaxy. All the films would converge at a final film, possibly a New Avengers final battle with Kang.
(As I am writing this, I realize this may be a two phase story)
The only one negative I see with the Kang storyline is that you might not have time to introduce new characters with all the alternate stories going on, and would really hate that. What do you guys think though?
