I will admit that I am not the biggest of comic book fans, also was more a DC (Batman) person. Im much more a fan of the animated series and movies for comic characters though. In such, I am not as well versed in some of the rogues galleries of many of marvels superheroes that didnt have a show. With that in mind...

As of today, Fantastic 4 has been an utter Flop at the theaters and looks to only get worse after the slew of horrible reviews. I've been hoping for this since I saw the first trailers, especially once the mcu started to ramp up with winter soldier and gotg last year. So this has been in my head for a while but it stems around 2 key things.

1. Once phase 3 ends, we will no longer have a lurking big villain, Thanos will have come and most likely passed if prior villains are the norm. Barring Loki , Winter soldier and Thanos, none of the bad guys in these movies have been in more than one movie. They get versed, beat and then they're gone(or so we're lead to assume).

2. There are some great villains to be added by spidey's universe, and still some great ones left from the original characters/new franchises being started... but there really isnt a popular entity who can take up 3 phases as a lurking threat like thanos did so well. One that requires everyone on board. Not unless we get back to what I was saying a second ago...

Now that F4 flopped, I would hope fox is wise enough to beg for a deal much like sony has with marvel. Then I'll hope they wont get that. I think it ends up being marvel lets fox make xmen tv shows to expand its universe and fox gives up F4 universe to marvel because they cant make it work.

If that deal were to occur, the entire mcu becomes a dream scenario where we not only add a couple major villains for the avengers, but the big bad one that lasts 3 phases. Starting with the end of the infinity war part 2, we see silver surfer coming to warn of the next big villain.... GALACTUS!

Meanwhile, in phase 4, you make Dr doom the new loki who's constantly involved these next 3 phases but not the worst threat in an avengers movie. Loki brought them but the chitauri aliens were the main threat in Avengers 1. Instead loki is a main villain for thor, doom will be that for f4. You add galactus as the new thanos. For phase 5, chris evans returns to capt america after winter soldier took up the shield when steve rogers "dies" end of phase 3. But phase 5 you bring on KANG!... When Galactus is done... SKRULLS!!!!!

Hell you can order the smaller ones anyway you like. But thats major storylines that will sell tickets...I would just hope that by the time phase 6 starts(before galactus reaches earth), the entire marvel hero catalog is available. Can you imagine if all those people were in a movie? End of phase 5 you merge(not reboot) the xmen into the mcu. Anything can be made at that point...

Thoughts? First article, suggestions and corrections are always welcome, just not a stickler for spelling or grammar...
