Marvel expanded it’s cinematic universe to the stars with Guardians of Galaxy, but that leaves an interesting question: “What’s next for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)?” After some tough thinking I came up with a list of characters that would be perfect for the big screen.
Although the film rights are technically owned by Fox, a Deadpool movie would be kickass. The excessive killing, gore, and Deadpool’s insane stupidity could definitely make this work. Plus there’s thousands of fans would kill to see this happen.
A character like Dr. Strange would open up the door to the more mystical elements of the Marvel elements on screen. I also think Dr. Strange has a very interesting backstory that would translate well onto film.
Black Panther is awesome and just like with Dr. Strange he would take the MCU to an entirely different setting. Seeing Black Panther watch over the fictional African city of Wakanda would be incredible. It could also help diversify the current Marvel roster.
Captain Marvel (Formerly Ms. Marvel)
Marvel is lacking big female characters on screen and Captain Marvel could be the answer. Not only is Carol Danvers a great character, but her presence could pull in bigger audience for MCU as a whole.
Moon Knight is Marvel’s equivalent to Batman. A movie based around Moon Knight would be dark and much more adult than previous Marvel flicks. If the studios ever wanted to show the darker side of their cinematic universe, this is certainly the way to go.
What do you guys think? Should Marvel consider giving them their own movie? Don’t be afraid to leave a comment, I would love any feedback!
