With Spider-Man: Far From Home’s trailer confirming the existence of a Multi-Verse in the MCU, the Marvel Universe is about to get a whole lot bigger. We know that the superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe are one too many. But a whole new array of Marvel superheroes could be introduced into the MCU and we could get entirely new movies springing out of these characters, all thanks to the revelation that parallel universes exist in your favorite superhero movie franchise. But who will get the chance to come to the theatres under the Marvel banner? We break down the most eligible choices for you. Presenting – 15 Marvel Superheroes we are pretty sure will enter the MCU through Marvel Multi-Verse!!
15. Miles Morales
With the success of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Miles Morales the African American Spider-Man from the comic books has become a household name. Mysterio claims that a rip in time and space between dimensions has led to several universes becoming vulnerable to inter-universal crossings from beings of another universe. A phenomenon of that magnitude cannot just affect one universe. Multiple universes may be affected, including the one where Miles currently resides in. Homecoming had already teased his existence in the MCU. This will just be the icing on the cake.
Venom is not a very goody-two-shoes kind of superhero. He eats his enemies for crying out loud. That is not what you would exactly term the “right thing to do” when fighting crime. As Marvel Universe’s foremost authority on Anti-Heroism, Venom would be a worthy addition to the Marvel Universe. We even see him coming to aid the Avengers in fighting the bad guys, eating them and cracking dark hokes and imprinting his gritty sense of humor onto others.
Spider-Man has always been a man’s mantle. The movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was the first ever movie to give us a female version of Spider-Man called Spider-Gwen. Spider-Gwen is actually Gwen Stacy. She is just as smart and acrobatic as Spider-Man, with a similar skill set. Gwen Stacy is nowhere to be seen in the MCU version of Peter Parker’s daily life. But we hope to see her soon enough now.
12. The Inumans
Those debaucheries of a show aside, the Inhumans, are a very important part of the Marvel Comics Universe. They have been there helping the Earth fight extra-terrestrial threats along with the rest of the superheroes since time immemorial. A result of genetic experimentation by the Kree (the same people that created Captain Marvel), the Inhumans are led by Black Bolt and his royal council. We believe that using the Multi-Verse to give the Inhumans a fresh start is the only way to save them and return them to their former glory.
11. The X-Men
The Disney-Fox Merger is done and all of the Fox-Verse superheroes are one way or another coming to the MCU. Kevin Feige had personally confirmed that the Mutant-Kind is coming under the Marvel Studios banner. Since the Multi-Verse concept is a reality, a ‘What If’ scenario could be implemented. There might be an Earth where mutants already exist. All the Marvel Overlords need to do is conjure up some event in a storyline that leads to both the mainstream Marvel world and the Mutant Marvel world collide.
10. Morbius the Living Vampire
Marvel does not have that long a tryst with blood-suckers. Morbius is not even Fox Property. He is a Sony Property, just like Venom. But the reason we included Morbius and Venom in this list is that Sony has always hinted at merging their superhero universe with the MCU. Venom was rumored to feature Tom Holland’s Peter Parker in a cameo. While that scene was supposedly cut, we now know that Sony has such plans indeed. Morbius is a vampire that fights for the good guys. It will be a bizarre tale to tell but still worth it.
If Morbius the living vampire can enter the MCU, why not Blade!! The Day Walker is the world’s greatest supernatural hunter. He kills vampires, slays werewolves and regularly vanquishes demons back to their nether-realms. Many do not know but Blade is actually a Shield operative. He has always handled the supernatural cases that come under Shield investigation. If Blade somehow ends up in the MCU, why not use his Shield history to build up his character arc? Blade – Supernatural Agent of Shield – has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?
8. Fantastic Four
One of the primary reasons Disney was so adamant on acquiring Fox Studios is because Fox Studios held the rights to Fantastic Four, Marvel Comics’ First Family. The Fantastic Four consist of Mister Fantastic, Invisible Woman, the Thing and the Human Torch. They regularly venture into the void of space and dimensions in the comic books. What if in one of those adventures, they inadvertently get into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and end up helping the good guys?
Disney never had any plans for Namor the Submariner. But just like Wonder Woman kicked into them some sense that a female-led superhero movie can actually make profit, which was how Captain Marvel came into being, Aquaman – an underwater superhero movie, made them realize that Namor could also be monetized. Disney may be thinking that releasing a Namor movie now might make their fans think Disney is trying to copy Marvel. But the brash Anti-Hero of the Marvel Universe still deserves a shot. So Disney needs to suck it up and give the fans what they want.
6. Iron Heart
Riri Williams is the successor to Iron man aka Tony Stark in the comic books. While Spider-Man is being touted as the next Iron Man kind of figure in the MCU (sorry War Machine), what if there already was an Iron Man in another universe. To be precise, an Iron Woman! An alternate universe story could show us Riri Williams being trained in the ways of the Iron Man by an older Tony Stark, who acts as his guide and Mentor in that universe. It would be a way to glorify Tony Stark’s legacy without desecrating what he has done so far in the current reality.
He is dead. He is also alive. Time travel dynamics are complicated. While Loki was killed by Thanos in Infinity War, he also managed to escape using the Space Stone and is still alive and kicking in another timeline. Since Loki is still a God of Mischief, what if he managed to survive in another timeline and is only waiting for the right time to resurface? If that is not possible, then there are bound to be Asgardians in other realities. Just use one of them to bring the God of mischief back into the MCU!!! We NEED Loki.
4. The Silver Surfer
Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer had a lot of room for improvement. But what it did do right was the way it portrayed the Silver Surfer. As a Herald of Galactus that is always dogged by internal conflict – whether to let Galactus eat away one planet after another or finally fight back – the Silver Surfer is a very layered and complex personality. One fan theory states that just like the Elementals in Far From Home, Galactus is also an extra-dimensional entity that is planning to come to Earth in order to harvest it. Silver Surfer’s job will be to tear through timelines to reach Earth and warn the superheroes of the incoming threat.
Can there be a Silver Surfer storyline without Galactus in it? The answer is a resounding NO! The Devourer and Destroyer of Worlds were first shown to be a massive array of nanobots in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. While that iteration of Galactus was panned by the critics and audiences alike, Galactus still has a lot of fire left in his chest. He could be the next Thanos of the MCU if Disney permits Marvel Studios to use him in the latter MCU Phases.
2. Doctor Doom
If Marvel is looking for a villain that could top Thanos, then there is no other villain other than Doctor Doom, King of Latveria, who could do so. Doctor Doom is probably the most powerful adversary any superhero could ever face. He is a God of Magic and a genius of science and technology. He has defeated the Avengers singlehandedly countless number of times and been the bane of many story arcs in the comic books. If Doom is being considered for a debut in the MCU, the version of Doctor Doom we recommend Marvel to choose would be the God-Emperor Doom.
1. Moon Knight
This might be a longshot. But why the hell not!! The Panther God exists in the MCU. That is how the nation of Wakanda came into being. Moon Knight is the avatar of Khonshu, another African deity considered the Egyptian Moon God. Moon Knight is what happens when Batman meets Joker but in a good way. He is psychopathic, violent and a terrific Anti-Hero. If only they could find a way to bring him to the MCU without disrupting the timeline – how about outsourcing him from a parallel universe for a change?
Do I really look like a guy with a plan? You know what I am? I’m a dog chasing cars. I wouldn’t know what to do with one if I caught it! You know, I just… do things
