As it will likely be apparent in this post I am a huge Marvel fan and love everything Marvel Studios have done so far for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Everything from Hulk smashing to Groot, well, "Groot-ing" has been amazing! What makes the MCU so great is that after you go to the over priced movie theaters and scarf down the delicious popcorn, you walk away trying to guess what is next.

That is what this post is about: guessing what is next...

Below you will see a list of past MCU movies along with others that I am predicting. The names in the parentheses next to the titles are the villains I predict will be in them. I am not going to describe what I think happens in each movie prediction as it will likely be apparent when going through the list.

I would love feedback on what you all think!

P.S. This is my first post.

Enjoy :)
