With the introduction of characters like Shang-Chi and the Eternals, Marvel Studios boldly steps into the future with new heroes and new stories.

As the Marvel Cinematic Universe goes through the death of Tony Stark and enters a stage after theEndgame world in Phase Four, it’s bringing back a ton of familiar faces from the Infinity Saga. Jane Foster, the former generic love interest who will become the “Mighty Thor” in Thor: love and thunder, It’s a good example.

In the next sequel to Taika Waititi Thor: love and thunder, the God of Thunder will pass his superhero cloak to his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster, played by returning Natalie Portman. True to the comics, Jane will undergo cancer treatments as she prepares to take on Thor’s godly responsibilities.
Portman refused to appear on Ragnarok after not having received any substantial material to work on the first Thor movie and be massively sidelined to accommodate Loki in The dark world. But since Waititi has reinvigorated the franchise (and no doubt given it the substantial material it was missing before), it will return.

As a version of Iron Man with bigger weapons, War Machine has never been one of the more exciting Avengers. This was even pointed out during the party scene in Ultron age.
But Don Cheadle’s James Rhodes is poised to lead a Disney + adaptation of the Armor wars execution of the comic. The series will be heavily tied to Tony Stark’s death, as Rhodey faces Tony’s worst fear coming true: his technology falling into the wrong hands.
6 Karl Mordo
In the first Strange doctor In the film, Chiwetel Ejiofor played the competitive sorcerer Karl Mordo. The post-credits scene revealed that Mordo was going around the world and killing wizards because he felt there were “too many.”
Ejiofor is set to reprise his role as Mordo in the upcoming Sam Raimi sequel Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Insanity, which will follow up on this story thread.
One of the many beloved B-level Marvel characters who has their own Disney + series is She-Hulk, who will be played by Orphan BlackTatiana Maslany. Tim Roth is set to reprise his role as the villain of The incredible Hulk, Emil Blonsky, also known as the Abomination, in the She hulk Serie. This could lead to a spot in the Thunderbolts.

First introduced in Captain Marvel, Talos introduced the notion that the MCU’s Skrulls are divided between evil relatives from the comics and innocent refugees who are only looking for a permanent home.
Like the comic strip of the same name, Secret invasion will revolve around fighting a sect of Skrulls that have already infiltrated human society.
two Mandarin (the real one this time)
In the comics, Tony Stark’s archenemy is the Mandarin, a fearsome terrorist leader, so Marvel fans were excited when he iron Man 3 The trailers featured Ben Kingsley’s Mandarin as a terrifying physical and ideological threat. Those same fans were quickly disappointed when the movie revealed that Kingsley’s character was a soccer fan who was simply posing as the face of a terrorist organization.
Marvel is ready to rectify this error in Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings, which will feature the true Mandarin as the father of the main character, played by the great Tony Leung.
