Michael Korvac to beat down Carol Danvers in ‘Captain Marvel 2’
Post the ‘Infinity Saga’, and the fate that Thanos suffered after daring to take on the Avengers, MCU is on the hunt for a new cosmic-level threat.
There is ‘WandaVision’, ‘Spider-man: No Way Home’, ‘Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’, ‘Eternals’, and many more building up to the one big ‘Endgame’ scale Phase 4 finale. However, ‘Captain Marvel 2’ seems to be the final nail in the Avengers‘ coffin.
As per the latest reports, ‘Captain Marvel 2’ might set up a cosmic scale villain, who, if not shot down by Carol Danvers, might play one of the major final villains for the Avengers in Phase 4.
According to ‘That Hashtag Show‘, ‘Captain Marvel 2’ original script featured Michael Korvac as the final villain. The original script was written by Anna Boden, Ryan Fleck, and Nicole Perlman.
Though the script went into a re-writing by ‘WandaVision’ staff writer Megan McDonnell, it’s reported that Michael Korvac has made it to the final draft.
The other characters who were initially reported to be in the original script and also made it to the final draft are Monica Rambeau and Ms Marvel.
Who’s Michael Korvac in the Marvel Comics?
MCU fans had a genuine concern regarding the future of MCU villains after Mad Titan snapped half of the universe out of existence in the ‘Infinity Saga’.
‘Captain Marvel 2’ plots a 3-villain storyline with the final villain, Michael Korvac, presenting the biggest threat to Avengers after Thanos.
The concern was about Thanos being too powerful for MCU to carry on and build greater intensity with other villains in the future. However, not many know that Marvel comics have an infinite lineup of Villains as powerful, and even way more powerful than Thanos. Michael Korvac is one of such villains. Moreover, he is known to be the biggest enemy and threat to the Avengers and the universe in Marvel comics.
Michael Korvac was created by Steve Gerber and Jim Starlin. He debuted with Marvel Comics issue ‘Giant-Size Defenders #3 in 1975’.
As CBR.com describes Michael Korvac:
“In Marvel Comics canon, Michael Korvac is a being from an alternate universe who ended up absorbing the Power Cosmic when attempting to hack into the database of Galactus’ space station. He battled and killed multiple members of the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy before committing suicide when he found his wife Carina doubted him. Korvac has reappeared in Christopher Cantwell and CAFU’s Iron Man run, intending to reclaim his godlike powers.”
However, Michael Korvac isn’t going to be the only villain in ‘Captain Marvel 2’. But he is reported to be the final villain. The probabilities are that he’s going to either escape or beat down Carol. And, then reappear in an Avengers Assemble movie in the future of MCU.
