You hear of thousands in the week, we will be focusing on the 15 biggest theories and rumors that are shaking the phases 4 and 5 of the MCU
You may know, the phase 3 of the MCU, which began on April 27, 2016 with Captain America : Civil War, ending with the release of Avengers 4 and the emotional goodbye of Chris Evans in his role of Captain America. But this is not because the page turns that the book is finished ! On the contrary, it will mark the beginning of phase 4 with Spider-Man : Far From Home , and later to phase 5. You’re obviously a little lost in all the theories that are circulating. It does the cleaning for you !
1. Gamora is not dead
Even if doubt still hangs, Zoe Saldana has teasé the return of Gamora in Avengers 4 ! In reality, she would be a prisoner of the Stone of the soul and it may come back in the world of the living. And if Gamora is in life, then this is going to be well for The Guardians of the Galaxy 3… Phase 4 !
2. In fact… no one died !
If the theory of the Stone of the soul is realized, Gamora, Mantis, Groot, Star-Lord, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Nick Fury, Bucky, Black Panther, and the others are in a parallel dimension, rather than in the hereafter. And will therefore return, or sparingly, or all at the same time, possibly thanks to the Stone of time ! A news that changes everything for phases 4 and 5 !
4. The madness of the second components
It is known that the phase 4 will begin with the second installment of the new franchise of spider man, Spider-Man : Far From Home ! But this is not yet confirmed, although highly speculated, is that Captain Marvel, Black Panther and Doctor Strange continue their adventures solo, too… And inevitably, it lengthens the life of the MCU !
3. Half of the super-heroes are actually… aliens !
This is no longer a secret, the Skrulls will be the main villains which will face Brie Larson and Jude Law in the film Captain Marvel. This alien race with green skin, pointed ears, and prominent chin have a capacity capable of undermining any of the MCU : They are métamorphes and can take the appearance of anyone or anything. However in the comics, they have gradually taken the place of super-heroes and super-villains without anyone noticing, in the Invasion a Secret ! A rumor that swells is that they are infiltrators on Earth since the 80’s. And they would have taken the place of Nick Fury even before the first Iron Man ! Then and if half of our favorite super heroes were actually Skrulls putting in place the pieces of the chessboard to checkmate during a massive invasion ? BOOM you exploded on the brain !
5. The integration of the X-Mens and Fantastic 4
We immediately think of an adaptation of Avengers : Secret Invasion (bah !), published in 2008, which brings together the X-Men and the Fantastic 4. The phase 5 is sufficiently far away in time for Marvel and Disney agree to develop strategies and determine how to best integrate these characters. May be a film of Secret Wars to close the phase 5, which could even compete with Infinity War and its sequel ?
6. Netflix and Marvel the play Inception
According to Marvel, all of the series Netflix are somehow related to the MCU, even if it is only a mention in passing of the “incident” of the Avengers. So, rather than continue to create series that will soon be more to report, it would be more beneficial to see Marvel strengthen the links between the worlds of Netflix and movies. Can you imagine Thor in Jessica Jones ? They would get along probably very well… Or not !
7. The Eternal, and against all odds
The endless have been introduced for the first time in the 1970s as an offshoot of evolving human beings. Their classification should give you a hint on one of their powers : instead of being homo sapiens, they are homo immortalis. They existed before humans and can live for millennia, as they were originally intended to be the guardians of the Earth (and not of the galaxy). Created by the Celestial, they spend most of their time to defend the humans against the deviant. Their story draws from Greek mythology, but in the comics of Marvel, they intersect also with the Kriyas, the Titans and the Inhuman. And if you had not made the connection… Thanos is one !
8. The Nova Body is in the place
The Nova Corps was introduced for the first time in the MCU in Guardians of the Galaxy in 2014, although he has not played the most important role. This police force spatial have the duty (a bit boring anyway), to protect the Andromeda galaxy and the Earth, led by the fierce Nova Prime. But after the destruction of half the universe by Thanos, it could take much more place in phases 4 and 5 !
9. Even Deadpool will come to shaker her booty in the MCU
Yes, if the X-Men are introduced in the MCU, why not Deadpool ! This is one of the rumors on the phase 5 which appeals most to fans. We can already see the jousting sarcastic, which would take place between Iron Man and Deadpool !
10. We said bye bye to Spider-Man
At this point in the MCU, it would not be surprising that the leaders of the Marvel decide to go in a different direction. Like Captain America we saying bye bye at the end of phase three, it has been whispered that leave from another of the founding members of the team of super-heroes at the end of phase 4 would be the logical next step. Nooooooon not Spider-Man… Please ?!
11. A REBOOT complete
We take the same and again ! The result of Infinity War will probably be the door through which some of the founding members of the Avengers will make their exit from the franchise. The survivors will still have stories to tell, as evidenced in the films planned for phase 4. However, after that … after that There is a real opportunity for Marvel to do something completely new. Again, would give the writers more creative freedom to introduce new characters and new stories in the universe. If they were trying to do it now, it would be much too heavy. It is a miracle that they have managed to get Infinity War with so many characters to share the screen. Keep a few characters of the early phases, like Spider-Man and Black Panther, could provide continuity and give the audience familiar faces with whom they can identify.
12. Black Widow is going to fly SOLO
A lot of positives in this idea ! The fans have been demanding for a long time a film centered on Black Widow. The queen of espionage has a history that is incredibly exciting, and it is so well-established in the Marvel universe that even the viewers are casual to recognise at least his character. The fact that she is masterfully played by Scarlett Johansson doesn’t hurt. Finally, it would be able to show his full range of skills. And with the arrival of Captain Marvel, the first film of the house worn by a woman, you can expect that the femininity took power.
13. The Silver Surfer will be a super-villain
Given that the young audience of Marvel will likely have no memory of the second part of the Fantastic 4 at the time when the version MCU of the Silver Surfer would go out in the hall, the writers could technically tell that story again. And the image of Venom and soon to be Kraven, he would be introduced as a super-villain, who could well appear during reunification of the Fantastic 4 with the X-Men !
14. Miss Marvel in fashion revolution
If you are reading this and you comes in this thoughts are confused : “I thought his own movie came out before the continuation of the Infinity War?”, you’re thinking of the wrong character. Captain Marvel is a heroine with a big H, which will break in march next year, but Miss Marvel is a character that is completely different. We are talking here about Kamala Khan. She is young (only 16 years), is originally an american-pakistani and was the first character muslim to have his own series of comics. Kamala Khan represents a considerable step forward in terms of diversity and introduce it in the MCU would be one of the best decisions for phase 5 !
15. Of the alternative universes you want, here it is !
Doctor Strange , we have already introduced the concept of multiple realities and potential futures, but this was only the tip of the iceberg. Imagine all the possibilities offered by the introduction of alternative universes in the MCU. The Stones of the Infinite, make this possibility more tangible yet. After all, if you can control all aspects of the universe, who can say that you can’t open a door to another universe ? Especially as some theories want that Captain Marvel is already in an alternate universe…
