The Avengers series has come to end with an epic battle sequence, defeating Thanos. But the Marvel Cinematic Universe lost Iron Man sacrificing himself to bring back half of the universe. Tony Stark’s story is over. The six Avengers stood strong in saving the earth thrice together, even after losing once. They fought amongst themselves, divided into two groups and reunited again, because once the old man said, ‘Winning or losing, both have to be done together’. Now now that the old man has really turned old due to time travel and passed down his shield to his dearest friend and buddy, will Falcon be the new leader and captain in the coming future of MCU? or was the shield just given to him for the sake of giving? Who will be the new leader or Captain to the MCU after Endgame?
Not delaying any further, let’s see who is going to lead the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Avengers: Endgame, because the threat will always be bigger than before and the next leader has to be wise and experienced. Here are the A-listed superheroes of Marvel who could be the future captain of the franchise:
Captain America did not give his shield to Carol Danvers. If he chose to give it to her(if at all in some weird way), it would have been symbolic, “Captain to Captain”. But it did not happen, so Captain Marvel has many chances of becoming the leader of the new Avengers team and also has the same number of chances to not become the leader. But as of now, she happens to be the most powerful superhero of MCU. She literally went through space ships just like that, she was even able to destroy Thanos’ space ship, which was pretty strong. She has the power that is needed and as the great quote goes, “With great power, comes great responsibility”, which never gets old. Does Carol Danvers have all it takes to be the face of Marvel phase 4 and the next?
Here’s what Kevin Feige had to say about her,
In our comics mythology, Captain Marvel is a character who’s got one foot on Earth and one foot in the cosmic arena. Now that we’ve made a number of movies that take place on Earth, and a number of cosmic adventures with the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and Thor, we thought it was the right time to finally introduce Captain Marvel to the world. She’s one of the most powerful – and one of the most popular – characters in our comics and will be the most powerful character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
To me, Captain Marvel is the first option to appoint as the new captain of the future Avengers or the new superhero super secret boyband(girls included).
Having said about all the shield passing down and Steve Rogers’ very first choice of the next Captain, Falcon seems to be a perfect successor of Captain America. Until today, to my knowledge, MCU’s Falcon doesn’t have any superpowers, but he has powers that are crazy and not detailed very much in the movies. Yes we know he flies and has techy stuff to kick the bad guy’s ass. Other than that, he has Peak human strength and speed, High-level fighting skills, Excellent firearm skills, and he is a skilled gunman. That’s a lot for the United States Air Force Operative. He has experience which is enough to lead other heroes on earth, but up in space, he has to wear a space suit. But Carol Danvers, her Kree suit is way more advanced to take care of the matters beyond earth.
Falcon is the right option to be the leader of the next Avengers team, and most likely, he will be the captain in the upcoming Disney+ series of Marvel Cinematic Universe, if the events in the series take place after the events of Avengers; Endgame.
I am not kidding. I know he is just a kid from New York fighting crime on streets. As said by himself,
I’m just a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
Marvel Studios are planning something huge with Spider-Man. Luckily Tom Holland is still young and has a lot of time to give for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sony and Marvel are making new deals and planting surprises. Venom is the arch villain of Spider-Man and these two characters cannot exist without each other, will Sony talk to Marvel and introduce Venom played by Ton Hardy into MCU, we never know? But if that happens, Spider-Man will be the next big thing in MCU and as the character(Peter Parker) grows up, he will go on to be the new boss of the Avengers. Well, Peter Parker is less likely to lead the MCU in phase 4, he has better chances of becoming like his mentor, Tony Stark and he might definitely take the lead after phase 4.
Until, Black Panther (2018), Wakanda was a locked up country and shared its resources with no one, but after realizing and being convinced, T’Challa has opened the arms of the nation to the world and is willing to help the planet in every way possible. Which means he will directly involve in the future matters of protecting the world and forming a new team. He is a king, a true highness, having all the qualities of being a leader. But, will he take the burden of every other superhero and given them the right directions to fight the bad? or will he be busy protecting his country and avoiding any harm from happening to his country people?
One thing that has to be remembered forever is that. All the things that happened in Avengers: Infinity War after Iron Man and Spider-Man traveled to Titan until Thanos was turned into dust in Avengers: Endgame was foreseen and triggered by Doctor Strange. He is the mastermind behind Avenger’s victory. He is the number one MVP of Avengers: Endgame, though he didn’t have a major in the movie. Doctor Strange is Master of the Mystic Arts, he is also the Sorcerer Supreme. In the coming, he was even called Captain Universe. He is a big deal. Though he won’t come forward to be a captain, he will be the backbone to the next team. His power of controlling and manipulating time is his major strength.
That’s it?! I know there are other heroes too, like Ant-Man, Wasp, and Guardians. But to me, they don’t seem like an option. Marvel always plans for a trilogy for standalone superhero films. Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor got their trilogies and became the ultimate trinity. Guardians of the Galaxy volume 3 is about to be released, Thor can be an option to lead, but his tummy won’t allow him to be. Ant-Man and Wasp are going to get another movie, but they will deal with their own problems relating to the Quantum Realm. I guess I have answered on Who Will Be The New Leader Or Captain To The MCU After Endgame?
According to my intuition, Captain Marvel or Falcon will be the next leaders of the Marel Cinematic Universe from Marvel phase 4. Both of them are unique and compelling in their own way, who will Marvel choose, who fascinates more to Kevin Feige? Let us know in the comments below.
