After Avengers Endgame, what is next in the MCU?
Avengers Endgame left Marvel fans in an absolute frenzy of emotions. In Avengers Infinity War, Thanos snapped his fingers with the infinity gauntlet and eliminated half of all life in the universe. Many fan-favorite superheroes then ‘vanished’ and all hope was lost. Not until in Endgame when Iron Man figured out time travel and recovered the 6 infinity stones before Thanos did and Hulk snapped his fingers to bring everybody back. However, Thanos figured a way into the future by his daughter Nebula because Nebula was an avenger but traveled back in time to get an infinity stone, but Thanos captured her and time-traveled to the present day where the Avengers and the army of Thanos had the battle of a lifetime fighting for survival. Fortunately, the Avengers won and killed the army of Thanos but not everything remained perfect for the team. In this article, I’m going to explain what is next for each character after this crazy event.
Black Widow: When retrieving the Soul Stone from Vormir, Natasha sacrificed her life so Hawk-Eye could live and get the stone for the Avengers. She is now dead but is scheduled to get a solo movie to start Phase 4. Many wonder how this can be, but it must be a backstory of her life or a new villain who could come back to life in the modern-day.
Thor: After giving Valkyrie the responsibility of the ruler of New-Asgard, Thor for the first time doesn’t have a path to follow. He then joined the Guardians of the Galaxy as he became friends with Rocket and Groot and will help them on their missions. Thor also has another movie coming up which will take place after endgame.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Thanos killed Gamora which made Peter Quill distraught as he thought he would never see her again. However, in the time travel heist, Gamora comes back to the modern-day with Thanos, but it is 2014 Gamora before she met the Guardians. She then disappeared after Endgame and sets up the next Guardians Movie as they search for her so Peter can find his love and hopefully find a way to have Gamora love him again.
Captain America: Steve Rogers went back in time after Endgame to be with his love. This left the modern-day world with a Captain America, but it is old Steve Rogers. Being too old to fight, he gives his shield to Falcon. This sets up the New Captain America in Phase 4 as now Falcon will continue as Captain America.
Vision / Scarlet Witch: Vision died in Infinity war but is scheduled to come back into the MCU in the new Marvel T.V series called WandaVision. Vision is a robot so it is not hard to picture his return as someone could repair him. Now Vision and Wanda will continue their life on their own. It was said that this T.V series will lead right into Doctor Strange: The Multiverse of Madness.
Doctor Strange: As said above, Doctor Strange will be getting a new movie dealing with the multiverse. The plot of this movie will depend on what happens in WandaVision, but expect some crazy weird other dimension threats.
Ironman: After sacrificing his life to bring back half the population, Ironman most likely won’t come back to the MCU. However there was a scene in Endgame that showed his daughter wearing one of the Ironman helmets as a very young kid. Maybe Morgan will become the next Ironman.
Spiderman: The movie Spiderman: Far From Home came out after Endgame as Peter defeated Mysterio in a very strange fight displaying the strength of his “Spidey-Senses”. Knowing now about the Multiverse and another Spiderman Movie on the way, maybe Peter gets caught up on some other dimension villains.
Black Panther: Black Panther 2 is scheduled to release in the future but not much plot has been released.
Antman: Antman 3 has many rumors surrounding it ranging from it being cancelled all the way to the film introducing the next young Avengers team. Anything can happen.
Hawk-Eye: Like WandaVision, Hawk-Eye will be getting his own t.v series in the next phase. As of now, we do not know if it will lead in to a new movie.
