The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been around for ten years and it doesn’t look like the franchise is coming to an end anytime soon. With Avengers 4 about to bring a conclusion to a 22-movie storyline, a new journey is about to begin and that means new heroes will have to arrive to save the day. But who will those new heroes be? I’m not going to pretend that I’m an expert on Marvel characters (I am not) but I have done some research and discovered some very cool characters that could be central pieces to this evolving story. So, here are the characters I would love to see debut in the upcoming Phase 4 of the MCU.
1. Hawkeye (Kate Bishop)
The older Avengers’ reign is coming to an end (quickly) and that means we need new heroes to take their place. With Spider-Man’s debut in Captain America: Civil War the idea of the Young Avengers coming to fruition could easily become something very special and Kate Bishop/Hawkeye is a perfect candidate for that youthful organization.
It’s also perfect because her storyline is simple. She grew up idolizing Hawkeye (he was her favorite Avenger) and decided when she got old enough to follow his footsteps as a bow-wielding superhero. Sounds great if you ask me.

The Marvel movies are done for the year and now we must look forward to the future. The next MCU film that is set to come out is Captain Marvel which is set to come out on March 8, 2019. No material has come out about the film yet which is a little strange considering that the movie is coming out in little over half a year but it seems that is coming to end.
Rumors have begun circling that the first look at Captain Marvel via trailer will be debuting sometime this month. That is so exciting!
I’m one of those people who have zero clue of who Captain Marvel is. I know she’s supposedly very powerful but beyond that I’m utterly clueless. And the synopsis for the film doesn’t help things. Here it is.
Carol Danvers becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.
This sounds like quite an awesome origin story and I absolutely can’t wait to see what happens. The simple fact that it’s being kept so secret pretty much proves how incredible this movie is going to be.
So, if you were like me and you wondering when we’ll finally get to see some footage of the film wonder no further. It’s coming soon and I. Am. Ecstatic. I hope the trailer is worth the wait.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day.
If you don’t know today is the first day celebrating the ten-year Marvel anniversary with theaters around the country replaying all 20 Marvel films! in IMAX. Yes, even Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, and Captain America: The First Avenger which weren’t around when IMAX was available can be seen in that stunning format. And get this, you can watch all twenty movies over the course of the next week for a moderate one time $50 ticket. Or, if you want to choose which movie you may want to see, you can go see the individual movie for half the normal IMAX ticket price. Sounds pretty awesome, right?
So, if you want to see Iron Man again in the thrill of the movie theaters you can watch that. Or if you just couldn’t get enough of Black Panther‘s awesomeness you can watch that again too. Or if you possibly missed Avengers: Infinity War and you want to see what all the fuss is about you get a chance to see it. Well, out of all twenty movies I have decided to see Infinity War again and I am BEYOND excited!
Infinity War has made me happy in ways I could’ve never imagined and to think that I get a chance to watch it one more time in IMAX is an opportunity I refuse to miss.
And you can be sure I’ll share my experience with watching the movie again. Oh, I can’t wait! *squeal*
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
Throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s ten year run there have been several directors and writers who have brought these movies and characters to life. The Russo Brothers first Marvel movie debut was Captain America: The Winter Soldier where they displayed a great sense of understanding the character of Captain America and creating a superhero movie on a lesser scale than some of the other Marvel films that had been made at the time.
Only until recently The Winter Soldier was my favorite film because of its more personal storyline and its impactful significance to the overall plot of the MCU. Since The Winter Soldier, however, they have made two other films (Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War) that are clearly some of the greatest superhero movies ever made. But what makes these three movies so perfectly composed and entertaining? Well, it’s simple. The Russo Brothers like cliffhangers.
For example; let’s look at the endings of these three movies.

It’s Day 2 of my Ranking the Marvel Trailers from Worst to Best series and I’m so excited to share with you the top ten trailers. Enjoy!
(If you missed it the first part to this series is linked here.)
10. Iron Man 2
Whoa, this is a good trailer. It shows plenty of exciting money shots without giving the viewer any idea of what the movie is about. It’s kind of amazing. And Whiplash actually presents a legitimate threat in this trailer. I like it.
9. Captain America: Civil War
I remember seeing this trailer and being a tad bit horrified. Seeing these heroes that had grown to be friends fighting each other is kind of mortifying. I’m glad the movie ended up being even better than this trailer because that shows how good it is.

Yesterday evening I watched Captain America: The Winter Soldier after not having seen it in months. I enjoyed it thoroughly of course, for it’s one of Marvel’s greatest installments in the franchise, but as I watched it I realized something. For a while now I have presented the argument that a movie can’t truly be incredible and memorable without a great villain. Take The Dark Knight for example. Many people herald it as the greatest superhero ever made not because of Batman (even though he was clearly awesome) but mainly because we remember The Joker.
Heath Ledger took the iconic Batman villain to the next level, making us believe in the cynical plans he constantly concocted and shaking us with his dark jokes about how he got his scars just before killing someone. He was, at many times, smarter than Batman and he made for a compelling antagonist that took the movie to a whole other level.
Marvel has started to figure that out over the years. Villains are Marvel’s one blaring flaw. Their constant obstacle that has become a suspected hindrance to the franchise. But of late they have tried to change that narrative by incorporating villains that are actually memorable and worth caring about in the past few years. And that’s where I come to the point of this post.

Marvel has introduced over two dozen fascinating and fabulous superheroes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Some of the most memorable of these wonderful characters have been, undoubtedly, the Guardians of the Galaxy. While they are clearly a bunch of misfits they have grabbed the hearts of Marvel fans and casual moviegoers around the world with their uncanny heroism. But which of these lovable scoundrels is your favorite? That’s what I’m here to ask you on this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Here are the characters.
Groot is practically the Chewbacca of the MCU. He’s big and represents the brute strength of the Guardiab, he speaks a foreign language in the form of “I am Groot” which we, as moviegoers, can’t understand, and he’s awfully sweet and kind (at least every version of Groot except the teenage Groot.) Groot is one of the coolest, most original characters I have ever seen in a movie and that’s why he’s so awesome.
