Marvel needs some new heroes so that they can create a new Avengers team. Here are the ones with the best chances.
Avengers: Endgame signaled the end to Marvel Phase 3. It also signaled the death of Black Widow and Iron Man and the retirement of Captain America. FFdn MCU mastermind Kevin Feige has confirmed that there is indeed an Avengers 5 in the works. With Avengers 5 coming, Marvel Studios has given us a slate of ten films and Disney+ shows that will span the next two years, making up Phase 4.
It’s iconic. Every time the Avengers team comes together, their fans go crazy. The very first Avengers film came back in 2012. And loyal MCU fans have loved seeing their favorite Marvel superhero ensemble team up on the screen ever since. Avengers: Infinity War took the franchise to a whole new level and Endgame was a great closure for Phase 3. For Avengers 5, Kevin Feige has a line-up that will consist of some cast that we have already met and some that haven’t met yet. When it comes to the difference between the next Avengers film cast and the previous one, it may only be the tip of the iceberg.
Marvel’s Phase 4 schedule for 2020-2021 has some leaks already
Marvel currently has schedule from 2020 to 2022 with nine new films for Phase 4. But Avengers 5 is not one of them. Avengers 5 is yet to be officially confirmed by Marvel. The phase 4 will start with a dead Avenger (Scarlet Johnson) following the events in Infinity War and Endgame. But before that, Marvel will be making their next big team of Avengers. We could possibly be seeing mutants, vampires, and alternate realities. This could make their storytelling possibilities for Avengers 5 nearly infinite.
Marvel has spent the past eleven years proving themselves. They can handle the massive cast of characters, sprawling storylines, and bizarre narratives of comic books. The next Avengers team is sure to still have its fair share of martial artists and heavy hitters. Unlike previous phases, MCU Phase 4 will actually contain quite a few TV series thanks to the launch of Disney’s own streaming service. The upcoming films consist of The Eternals, Shang-Chi, the Legend of the Ten Rings and Blade, as well as Disney+ TV series like Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk.
New cast to be introduced in Phase 4 – Clues from Studio and Hints from Actors
Marvel initially started with six heroes whose abilities could be boiled down to either fighting really well or punching really hard. But now we will meet heroes and villains with a much wider range of talents, from the magical to the mechanical. Kevin Feige mentioned that the MCU was already “planting seeds” for an eventual Young Avengers film.
In Avengers 5, we will also see some old Avengers like Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Spider-Man (Tom Holland), Dr Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) in the mix. This time Avengers is likely to star an entirely new villain and a plot that isn’t related to Infinity Stones. There is no word yet on what that will be though. New villains are set to appear in Spider-Man: Far from Home, so a new threat may be revealed.
New heroes could be in the mix as well
Disney’s upcoming streaming service will continue to build on what Marvel has decided for Phase 4. Disney+ is expected to directly connect to the MCU’s future, providing more options for world-building.
Just like Shang-Chi or Black Knight, new heroes could be in the mix as well. Since the Marvel Avengers may be lacking in the leadership department due to their recent losses, Black Knight may step up in The Avengers 5. There are also speculations that Iron Man 3’s young genius Harley Keener will return for Tony Stark’s funeral in Endgame. Keener could become the MCU’s Iron Lad, a superhero from the comics who wears a suit similar to Iron Man’s. Iron Lad.
How the new Avengers ensemble could reshape the MCU
At San Diego Comic-Con 2019, Marvel announced its Phase 4 slate and confirmed the development of more movies, including Fantastic Four, Captain Marvel 2, and Blade.
Multiple Avengers teams could reshape the MCU. It would certainly expand the Avengers brand, and give fans more frequent opportunities to see the Avengers in action.
