WARNING! This article incorporates spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War. Do your self a favor and see it first.
In 2012, six Marvel heroes got here collectively to kind a brilliant group in The Avengers. While the Marvel Cinematic Universe has expanded exponentially since then, these heroes — Hawkeye, Iron Man, Black Widow, Thor, Hulk, and Captain America — would stay the core group of Avengers till the occasions of Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War break up them up. To this present day they’re nonetheless thought-about to be the principle Avengers group and the guts of the MCU, however that will not be the case for for much longer.
Judging by the top of Avengers: Infinity War and who’s nonetheless alive, that core group from the primary movie would be the ones burdened with discovering a strategy to defeat Thanos (Josh Brolin) and reverse his genocidal actions. With Phase three coming to an finish, together with contracts, and with heroes anticipated to die or grasp it up in Avengers 4, that ought to make that climactic film one thing of a swan music for the OG Avengers group. Disney head honcho Bob Iger hasn’t dominated out future Avengers movies, and cash dictates that they’re prone to occur. The solely query is, who’ll be on the group?
Nobody is aware of for positive what Marvel will do at this level, however right here is a few barely educated guesswork and wishful desirous about which Marvel heroes will most likely be Avengers after Avengers 4. Just as a result of somebody is not on this listing does not imply I believe they will not be in Phase 4, simply that they won’t be a everlasting fixture on the core group and can maybe come out and in. With so many heroes within the MCU and extra on the way in which, the group may get very massive. So, to stop it from getting too unwieldy, I will maintain it to eight members, two greater than the unique group.
This one is just about a no brainer. Captain Marvel was brilliantly arrange within the post-credits scene in Infinity War to make a severe splash within the MCU. Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers is not simply going to indicate up in Captain Marvel and Avengers 4 after which peace out to wherever she’s been hiding for all these years. Captain Marvel ought to play an enormous function in Phase 4 and I think about that she might even be the chief of the Avengers going ahead as she was for the Mighty Avengers within the comics. Captain Marvel is a born chief with a navy background, who at all times fights for what she believes in, it doesn’t matter what, making her an amazing successor to Cap’s function.
I debated whether or not or to not embrace Black Panther on this listing. Obviously he will probably be in Phase 4 and Marvel will most likely embrace him in as many MCU entries as attainable given the success of his debut. But I am undecided king has time to be a part of a superhero group on a everlasting foundation. However, now I am considering that post-Avengers 4, after the heroes save half the planet, the Sokovia Accords will probably be ripped up and heroes will probably be accepted once more. With Wakanda opening itself as much as the world, T’Challa will be part of the group as one thing of an envoy, representing the nation on the world stage as part of the Avengers.
