It's almost time to kick off Phase 3 with Captain America: Civil War, so it's time to start wondering, what comes next? Let's start with the sequels...
Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3
Let's face it, how could Marvel not make a Guardians 3? It has been a gold mine so far and the 2nd one isn't even in theaters yet! This could also be a chance for some new characters to be added. If they haven't yet, then Nova, Venom, and even a new Iron Man have a chance to enter the playing field. This would sadly probably be the end of the Guardians trilogy though... but they could be rebooted if Marvel has no other choice.
Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Ant-Man, and Inhumans 2
If these new heroes do good with their debut, there is a very good chance that they will all receive sequels. They all have a big line-up of villains to take down so the threat of a sequels could be easy. Captain Marvel could be dealing with a Kree war in both of her movies, Black Panther will probably battle klaw in his first movie, and Man-Ape in the sequel. The Inhumans could crossover with Captain Marvel in her Kree wars as well. And can we please have Lockjaw in one of the two Inhumans? Please? And for Doc Strange, Baron Mordo or Dormammu will work fine for both of his movies. And how could they NOT make another Ant-Man? It was awesome!
Now of course, this is Spider-Man II for the MCU, but in total, we have had 8 spidey movies, and Civil War, so hopefully, Marvel Studios will have it handled. If we could get some new villains and multiple Spiders then I will be just fine. I would like to see Miles Morales, Spider-Gwen, Spider-Man 2099, Vulture, Kraven, Mysterio, Scorpion, Venom, and Carnage if we could. Of course not all in one movie though.
By the time Phase 4 is really here, ALL of the Defenders will have AT LEAST 2 seasons of their shows so I think it's fair that they get a movie too. Who would they battle though? I think a collaboration of their Netflix villains would work well. So far that's Purple Man and Kingpin, but we also know nothing about Daredevil Season 2, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, so we're bound to see more enemies. Punisher and Elektra could also appear as allies.
All New, All Different, Avengers
With it being revealed that after Phase 4, the Avengers as we know them are going to change, a lot. With RDJ, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and Mark Ruffalo's contracts expiring after Phase 3, the team is going to need a little reboot. But it won't be the All New, All Different team exactly. I think the roster will probably be Scarlet Witch, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Spider-Man, Vision, and Falcon. If Nova even exists yet, he won't Avenger worthy. Ms.Marvel will Carol Danvers. And if they do reboot Thor, Cap, And Iron Man, they probably won't do it this way. And if they aren't going with a team like this at all, then it might look like this...
The Young Avengers
The Young Avengers. A great solution to Marvel's main team. And most of the team is already set up. Cassie Lang, Scott Lang a.k.a Ant-Man's daughter, is Stature, the Young Avenger's growing and shrinking gal. Speed and Wiccan could be Scarlet Witch and somebody else's kids who get their mother and uncle's powers. Hawkeye II could end up being Clint Barton's eldest daughter. If Thanos does have to destroy Vision in Infinity War to get the Soul Stone, then the Young Avengers will have to rebuild him as Vision 2.0. Now all that Marvel Studios has to do is implement Patriot and Hulkling and we're set.
Phase 4 Complete!
