For those of you who have seen Avengers: Age of Ultron you know by the end of the film the team has a few new recruits for future Marvel movies going forward. Several characters are also getting the TV treatment including Daredevil, Mockingbird, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Jessica Jones. We know Spider-Man is on his way, and it is growing more and more likely that Carol Danvers will be making her way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the next few years. But what about all those 50+ years of Avengers who don’t fit into Marvel’s master plan for the big (or even small) screen? Here are the Top 10 Avengers Who (Likely) Won’t Be Part of the MCU.
Not only does the film have to introduce a brand-new villain (something The Avengers didn’t have to spend time on) and three new supporting characters (with vastly different origins than their comic counterparts), and weave in ongoing events from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. while providing separate in-depth character moments for every single Avenger, Age of Ultron also has to lay the groundwork for the next two Avengers films, Captain America: Civil War, and Thor: Ragnarok.
