Quote:So what are your predictions regarding the MCU post-Endgame?
Somehow, I think that the new MCU could become more "mystical" because the Ancient One has warned the audience that MCU Earth without the Time Stone is much more vulnerable to attacks from the forces of darkness.
In the 2nd Dr. Strange movie, Stephen is likely to encounter Mordo. Maybe, he could fight another threat as well, such as Nightmare & the Fear Lords, for example ?
Without Tony & Steve around, Dr. Strange & Black Panther are likely to become two of the new heads of the superhuman community. Since most of the original Avengers are retired, dead or in space, Dr. Strange & Black Panther might be tempted to organize an "Illuminati" alliance in case of emergency (the MCU equivalent to the classic Defenders, actually ...)
Apparently, Thor becomes one of the GotG. It is highly possible that GotG 3 will provide a conclusion for all the main characters (even though Rocket might continue to appear after), including Thor.
Adam Warlock & the Magus could appear in the movie.
(NB : "Him" was a Thor foe at the beginning of his career.)
The Universal Church of Truth could be the main antagonist of the film (actually, I can see James Gunn using them as the main antagonist ...).
It is hard to guess who could be the next nemesis in Black Panther 2. Perhaps, Moses Magnum could appear as one of the villains.
If they manage to resolve the rights' issues with Universal, Namor could appear in Dr. Strange 2 and Black Panther 2.
To replace the Infinity Stones, I thought that the Serpent Crown could become the new MacGuffin of the MCU. Conan's Set cannot appear in the MCU but there are other Serpent deities and the like around.
Using the Serpent Crown would allow to have many of the snake-themed villains appear in the MCU : Princess Python, Viper, Cobra, the Serpent Society, the Sons of the Serpent, the Egyptian Seth (actually, revealed as Apep/Apophis), Jormungand ...
Also, the Serpent Crown is connected to the Deviants (// Eternals) and Atlantis (//Namor).
The last Thor story might involve Jormungand the World Serpent, either in GotG 3 or even in a Thor 4 movie (if there is one).
If it ever happens, the Shang-Chi movie could be an opportunity to conclude the story-arc of the Ten Rings (for example, Shang-Chi could be the son of their field leader).
I hope that there will be some cool antagonists in the Black Widow movie (for example, Taskmaster, Constrictor, Viper, the Serpent Society, Spymaster's Espionage Elite, Crossfire, Scorpio ...). I suppose that Yelena Belova may appear.
In the 3rd Ant-Man movie, I wonder who could be the main opponent. Whirlwind could appear as a secondary antagonist but probably not as the main threat. Actually, since Arthur Parks (the Living Laser) will never appear in an Iron Man movie, he might appear in an Ant-Man movie instead and work with David Cannon (Whirlwind) and Erik Josten (Power Man/Smuggler/Goliath/Atlas). Crossfire could be another possibility since he is the cousin of Darren Cross.
In Captain Marvel 2, I suppose that Carol will continue her fight against the Supreme Intelligence and the Kree Empire. Otherwise, maybe, Karla Sofen (Moonstone) or Noh-Varr could appear in the movie.
In the 3rd MCU Spider-Man movie, I think that the time has come for the Sinister Six to appear on screen.
I suppose that Sersi will be the main protagonist of the Eternals movie and that the Celestials and the Deviants will appear.
