I been following the Marvel Cinematic Universe for some time now and I believe I have made a pretty good guess at what to expect in Phase 4. Below are my predictions for the 9 movies I believe will appear in phase 4 (Not Confirmed. this is just a fan-blog). Only the first and last movies should be positioned right; the 7 in middle are up in the air for switching, I'm just listing them:
Like Ant-man being moved from beginning of phase 3 to end of phase 2, I believe because of the immense power that avengers 3 pt. 2 will have; that marvel will change Inhumans from end of phase 3 to beginning of phase 4. As for casting there are 7 main roles: Black Bolt, Medusa, Karnak, Gorgon, Triton, Crystal, and Maximus the Mad. For now I can only see Amanda Seyfried as Crystal and Cillian Murphy as Maximus. And of course, a very lucky bulldog for the role of Lockjaw.
2. The Black Widow
People have been asking marvel for a solo Black Widow film FOREVER. Enough! Yes! I believe marvel will make a Black Widow movie with Scarlett Johansson, they were probably just deciding whether to put her in phase 3 or 4. They probably decided they needed more time with her story so they pushed her back to phase 4. But I believe it will happen eventually.
3. The Runaways
Like the Guardians of the Galaxy before the obviously successful movie , this is another group that you probably never even heard of. It follows a group of mutant teenagers (if fox still owns the rights by this time their background will be changed to inhuman), who discover their parents are part of an evil crime organization known as The Pride; and they steal from them and "run away" ( get It?) so they could band together and fight their parents. The original group consists of a witch, a solar-powered alien, a child prodigy, a mutant ( or Inhuman), a boy with high-tech gauntlets, and a telepath with a connection to an 87th century dinosaur. And you thought the walking tree and the talking raccoon were weird, right?
Marvel has actually been trying to develop a feature film about this group for quite some time now. It was one of the movies rumored to be in Phase 3, but marvel decided to shelve it for now. So we might actually see it appear in phase 4.
4. Captain Marvel 2
Because of how much heat Marvel is getting for the lack of female-led superhero films, I think as soon as the first CM movie comes out they're going to get started on the second. There have been many rumors as to who will play ms. marvel in the 2018 adaption; my vote goes towards either Emily Blunt or Charlize Theron.
5. Hulk 2
This one is long overdue. I just read recently that Marvel CAN make a hulk sequel/Planet Hulk/World War Hulk if they wanted to. The thing is, they run through Universal first. If they say no, disney can pick up on it. It would be great to see the Big Green in the lead role again, this time with Ruffalo at the helm. AS for a big baddie, well...
Many people might not know this, but the character of Dr. Samuel Sterns (Portrayed by Tim Blake Nelson) is actually the human alias for the hulk baddie known as The Leader. After Blonsky fully becomes The Abomination, he throws sterns at a machine. Some of Banner's blood drips into his open head wound, starting to increase his head size as he smiles. Nelson was a good choice for pre-Leader and would still make a good choice for current leader; there would be no reason to recast him; I mean if they are keeping William Hurt as General Ross, then they can keep Nelson.
"Where has he been all this time?"
Planning! A good plan takes years to make, especially if you are going up against the Hulk.
6. Spiderman 2
If they are planning to make a spiderman movie for each year that parker is in high school, they have to have a spiderman film in phases 4-6. Remember, 3-4 years can make a difference in someone's appearance. The person they choose for spiderman (If they can agree on someone), will probably look the right age for the first film, but for the second, you got someone playing a 15 year old who looks like they should be in their senior year of college.
7. Guardians of the Galaxy 3
James Gunn, the director of the first 2 GOTG movies, said in an interview that while he was planning the second, he was also planning a third film as well. You just can't go wrong with a fusion of 30th century sci-fi adventures, with hit music from the '80s.
8. Iron Man 4
THis one was a tough one, but by the time of the inhumans film it will have been 7 years since IM3. So if they do a fourth for phase 4: three things must happen:
8.1. New lead change
Robert's getting tired, and I think by the time this gets planned he doesn't want to be Iron Man anymore. So I think Tony Stark will still be in this story, but with somebody else playing him.
8.2. Better Villains
This movie needs better known villains than whiplash or Aldirch Killian. My vote would be for the virus monster known as Technovore. Number 2 would be a realistic version of M.O.D.O.K., or number 3: a real mandarin. Unlike.......
No offence to Sir Ben Kingsley, he is an astounding actor. But NO Marvel! Bad! Bad Marvel! Very Bad Marvel! The twist that revealed the Mandarin, practically the nemesis to Iron Man in the comics, as a drunken British actor named Trevor was a twist indeed, but a very bad twist! To me, because of that, Iron Man 3 is the 3rd worst MCU film to date.
9. Avengers 4: Galactic Storm
And to end it all off is the fourth installment to the Avengers (I'm counting Infinity war as 3 pt.1 and 3 pt.2). Based on what story lines remain in marvel hands and the picks I've made (Inhumans, Ms. Marvel 2, GOTG 3, Runaways), I would pick the storyline of the kree invasion and the main baddie (Loki, Ultron, Thanos) would be the supreme intelligence of the Kree.
Not something the Avengers would be fighting head-on, but it does have about 100,000 systems in its military empire to use so I'd say its a fair fight.
Do you agree with my picks? I thoroughly impressed by them myself! So this is how a blog works huh? I could get used to this.
