Black Panther, Ant-Man, Doctor Unusual, Captain Marvel and the Inhumans will all have appeared not less than a few occasions earlier than the tip of Infinity Struggle, but will solely have had one movie all to themselves.
Sequels for each are the obvious movies Marvel may roll out, in addition to a third Guardians of the Galaxy.
Tv Stars Stepping Up
By 2019 Marvel’s Netflix sequence could have wrapped up, with Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage enjoying their own exhibits before teaming up because the Defenders. Any of them, or all of them collectively, may characteristic in their own film.
As for Agents of SHIELD, it’s exhausting to think about that making the jump to the big display, but when it manages to final eight seasons and extend into Part Four then something is feasible. Perhaps an X-Men-style film about a SHIELD training academy and its college students may work.
Recasting Outdated Heroes
The assumption is that Marvel might be lucky to retain the providers of even certainly one of its key current stars. Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Scarlett Johansson could effectively all be gone following Infinity Warfare.
In the case of Iron Man there has been discuss of recasting Tony Stark with a brand new actor, James Bond style.
Black Widow, as good and effectively-liked as she is, could be misplaced with out much worry, after which there’s Thor – who was very just lately recast within the comics as a girl. A notion that would absolutely have crossed the minds of these at Marvel Studios planning for the longer term.
On the subject of Captain America, existing big display sidekicks Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and Sam ‘Falcon’ Wilson (Anthony Mackie) have every assumed the title and shield in the comics, something which can virtually definitely occur in the films sooner or later.
Spider-Man, The X-Men and The Unbelievable Four
There would be no better manner for Marvel to begin over than to accumulate and reboot the licenses it offered to Fox and Sony within the nineties, and whose films presently do not kind a part of the MCU.
Rumours have steered that Sony may strike a deal with Marvel over the use of Spider-Man in its Avengers series, but that is still only a rumour.
It is however far more likely to occur than a deal with Fox for the X-Males. For a begin the mutant collective has sufficient robust characters to build its own cinematic universe around. Then there’s the dangerous blood between the 2 studios: Fox also owns the large display rights to the Improbable Four, and Marvel simply cancelled that comic sequence apparently to hinder subsequent year’s movie reboot.
X-Males is too massive a collection to do this to though, and too successful for Fox to relinquish any time soon. If that Fantastic Four reboot fails next yr however, the rights may revert to Marvel in 2020.
If Marvel’s first movie submit-Infinity Struggle was about a new character unfamiliar to audiences and had few ties to what came before, that can be the ideal pallet-cleanser for fans following all the intergalactic shenanigans.
Who may that hero be? Nova, Blade, Moon Knight, Runaways and Namor the Sub-Mariner are candidates, as is She-Hulk, which leads us properly to…
The big man.
Since Mark Ruffalo first played Bruce Banner in Avengers Assemble and helped deliver the best large-display Hulk to life with movement capture, followers have clamoured for a solo Hulk film. Fairly why it hasn’t occurred yet is not clear, with Feige insisting that it still would possibly.
Issues with the earlier two Hulk motion pictures (neither Ang Lee’s Hulk nor Louis Leterrier’s The Unbelievable Hulk did the character justice) could possibly be to blame, or Marvel may simply be saving him as a further promoting level of the Avengers films.
A solo outing in Part 4 is sensible, and if timed proper could additionally present a narrative for put up-Infinity War Marvel to pursue. Planet Hulk, which sees the character jettisoned into house where he rules his personal planet, and World Conflict Hulk, a sequel which sees him return to Earth very pissed off, are both ripe for adaptation.
