Marvel Cinematic Universe is expanding and bringing back its long lost heroes and villains. There are numerous theories revolving around Phase 4 and 5. One such theory is the revival of Marvel supervillain, Ultron.
A rumour is doing rounds in the Marvel universe, Ultron will return to the MCU in Phase 4 or 5. We met the villain in 2015 through ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’. It was a time when MCU was still developing its fan-base. The fans failed to get a good grasp of the character’s sketch in the actor-heavy movie. So, it would be a perfect call for MCU to bring back Ultron, but when and how? Here are our interpretations and theories—
- A fantastic Marvel deal that is holding the doors to a future filled with out-of-the-world movies and TV series.
- Here’s how Ultron can come back in Marvel Phase 5.
- Can Ultron make an appearance in this Marvel Phase 4 project?
A Fantastic Marvel deal
Ever since the Disney and Fox merger, Marvel Studios has access to many of its long lost characters. This is opened countless possibilities for the Marvel Cinematic Universe— they can bring back characters, introduce already-famous ones, introduce various Earths, and leave fans with major cliffhangers.
Among these Marvel characters, there is one who is not feared as much as he should. Ultron. Age of Ultron failed to do justice to the character and MCU might consider bringing him back. In fact, there are many ways in which the studio can introduce him without his presence feeling forced. Here are the two ways in which we think it is possible—

#1 Here’s how Ultron can come back with Marvel Phase 5
Every new Marvel Phase is proving to be more promising than the last. A project in Marvel’s Phase 5 might prove to be the door through which Ultron re-enters the silver screen at MCU. Reportedly, a Silver Surfer movie is in the making at the MCU (and also a Fantastic Four movie). Not only this, Kevin Feige is looking out to introduce Galactus in Marvel Phase 4. Silver Surfer is a link that ties Ultron to Galactus as he used Ultron’s leftovers to resurrect Galactus in the comics (Earth 22666). Silver Surfer, Ultron, Galactus— what could be a better plot for the first Silver Surfer movie under MCU’s banner?!
(In fact, if we are to believe popular rumours, we might even see Keanu Reeves as Silver Surfer.)
Not only Silver Surfer, once introduced, Ultron could also make an appearance in the Fantastic Four movie. The possibility is huge— Ultron could easily return to MCU with Marvel Phase 5. But it might be possible that he comes in earlier. Here’s how—
#2 Can Ultron Make An Appearance In This Marvel Phase 4 Project?
Another possible entry for Ultron could be a Disney Plus series that will feature in Marvel’s Phase 4. Disney Plus’ WandaVision could be his resurrection screen. Out of the Avengers who are still alive, Scarlett Witch (Wanda) has the strongest connection to Ultron. Both Wanda and Ultron have been exposed to the powers of the Mind Stone.
In fact, a part of Ultron lived in Vision and we know Wanda was romantically involved with Vision. Avengers: Infinity War was the death of Vision but he will be back in the TV Series WandaVision wherein Wanda might try to bring him back to life. In the process, she might also resurrect Ultron in the Marvel Phase 4 series. Or Ultron could be a way to bring back Vision as the two are closely connected.
There are many possibilities until we see one unfold. So, which one do you think might really make it to the MCU screen? Will Ultron come back to MCU in Phase 4 or Phase 5? Share your views with us.
