It seems as if the [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](tag:293035) Blu-ray has been leaked in some foreign country. As screenshots began flying in a file about Ulysses Klaue surfaced and contained some very interesting information about Marvel's Illuminati! If you are a fan of of Marvel comic books than this information is huge! The file not only contained information on T'Challa's father T'Chaka, but some key information about the Bilderbergs. Could the Illuminati be coming to the MCU?
What exactly is the Illuminati?
Originally appearing in The New Avengers, the Illuminati consisted of Tony Stark, Professor Xavier, Black Bolt, Reed Richards, Doctor Strange and Black Panther. The Illuminati was a secret group of superhumans who acted as a council of sorts as it pertained to worldly matters and how they should be handled. The Illuminati is a very secret organization and its existence is unknown to the public. Obviously, if the Illuminati does in fact exist within the MCU, both Professor Xavier and Reed Richards would be absent as they are owned by Fox.
Could the Illuminati really exist in the MCU?
The file that was somehow obtained seemed to point toward the annual Bilderberg meetings, where members of the Illuminati would discuss the world for the impending year was not the present. Much older than Tony Stark, the original Illuminati could have consisted of Howard Stark, T'Chaka, and possibly the founding members of S.H.I.E.L.D. Tony Stark originally created the lluminati with the idea that he could control superhuman life within the world, which would tie in with Captain America: Civil War perfectly. It would be awesome for Tony Stark and T'Challa to stumble upon some old Illuminati files holding references to their fathers.
Is it really a possibility?
I do believe that Marvel is planning something with the Illuminati. I think it would be an awesome direction for Marvel to go in, especially with [The Avengers: Infinity War](tag:738027) right around the corner. The world is going to need a council of super-beings to dictate how the world should be protected. Hopefully Marvel really has something in the works and we get to see some awesome Illuminati round table discussions!
