When the first Iron Man film hit theaters back in 2008, nobody ever suspected the rise of the "Avengers Initiative" nor how great Marvel would become when it came to movies. Now we can look forward to a few movies and shows per year further delving us into the world of superheroes, New York, and Stan Lee cameos. The MCU has since then become one of the most beloved franchises in cinematic history.
Because of this, Marvel doesn't look to be stopping anytime soon, having a slated release date up until 2020 as far as we know. As of right now, everything is building to the great Avengers: Infinity War which will be the culmination of everything we've seen up until that point. And the wait won't be so bad either with Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange on the way soon.
Part of what makes the MCU such an amazing franchise is because it feels real and alive, with actual events taking place to really flip it on its head. Not only that, but the introduction of new characters also changes the whole world. As we're beginning to see, Marvel isn't afraid to rearrange the chess pieces in their movies. Because it's been such a long established universe, they're going to have to do something different to keep audiences coming to their films.
Whether it's a character, film, event, or behind the scenes happening, here are 15 things that will drastically shake up the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
15 The Civil War
14 Black Panther
13 Quantum Realm
12 Doctor Strange
11 Future of S.H.I.E.L.D.
9 Hulk in Space
7 The Wasp and Captain Marvel
6 The Inhumans
5 Ending Contracts
4 Infinity War
3 No More Infinity Stones
Because of the buildup to Infinity War, naturally we're going to see Thanos in possession of the Infinity Gauntlet with all of the stones in hand. After he's defeated though (we know he's going to be), then that's it for the stones. We're not sure what's going to happen to them, but like getting a new bad guy, Marvel is going to have pull something else from their comics to give us a tease of what's to come. What intrigues me the most is what that means for the Vision. One of the Infinity Stones is what gives him life, and if they don't exist, will he be gone, too?
2 Phase 4
1 The New Avengers
Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Ant-Man, Wasp, Black Panther. These are the heroes who are going to be headlining a new cast of Avengers after Cap, Iron Man, and Thor finally spend their due time in the MCU. This will not only shake up the MCU but also what fans will have to look forward to when these movies get announced. The Avengers in the comics, featured a constantly changing roster, and now that it'll be a reality in the films, it feels like the MCU will really embrace their comic origins going forward.
