As issues presently stand, the MCU is already filled with characters sometimes related to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Most have debuted in movie type, however an growing quantity, like Moon Knight, are hitting the small display first on Disney+.
The MCU has all of the founding members of the Avengers from the comics, in addition to mainstays similar to Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, and Imaginative and prescient. For a number of of those heroes – like Hank Pym, for example – their Avengers connections do not exist within the MCU, besides, their inclusion provides much more large display illustration to some of the in style superhero groups within the historical past of comedian books.
The MCU has so many members of the traditional crew that a very powerful Avenger nonetheless lacking from the MCU is Hercules, though he may very properly make an look in Thor: Love and Thunder since Russell Crowe shall be taking part in his father, Zeus, within the film.

Here is each new Avengers character confirmed for Section 4 to date.
In Marvel Comics, U.S. Agent, a.okay.a. John Walker, was a brief substitute for Captain America and an antagonist to Steve Rogers. He later grew to become a key member of the West Coast department of the Avengers, the place he shaped a bitter rivalry with Hawkeye. Performed by Wyatt Russell, U.S. Agent made his MCU debut in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier as a villain/anti-hero. The collection made it fairly clear that he was misguided, nevertheless, and supplied him a second of redemption ultimately. Because of this U.S. Agent might be rebranded as a hero and Avenger at a later date with out an excessive amount of hassle. Alternatively, he might be becoming a member of the MCU’s Darkish Avengers or Thunderbolts after being recruited by Valentine Allegra de Fontaine. Whether or not U.S. Agent turns into a new Captain America or a continued antagonist nonetheless stays to be seen.
Black Knight, the best swordsman within the Marvel Universe and wielder of the highly effective Ebony Blade, was a fixture of the Avengers for a number of years in Marvel Comics and was even the face of the crew for a time period within the Nineteen Nineties. Recreation of Thrones star Equipment Harrington introduced Black Knight’s civilian persona, Dane Whitman, to life in Marvel’s Eternals film. Despite the fact that Dane did not get the prospect to swimsuit up, Eternals’ post-credits scene confirmed him unboxing the Ebony Blade for the primary time, that means Black Knight ought to have a future within the MCU.

After stopping the emergence of the Celestial Tiamut from throughout the Earth’s core, Sersi was whisked away by Arishem together with Phastos and Kingo, so her present whereabouts are unknown.
Marvel’s Gilgamesh is definitely probably the most obscure Avenger launched to the MCU in Section 4, however on the similar time, he’s certainly one of its strongest members within the comics. The traditional Everlasting is powerful sufficient to match blows with the strongest of Marvel’s characters. Don Lee portrayed Gilgamesh in The Eternals, the place he showcased not solely the character’s immense energy but in addition his tenderness in direction of his comrades, particularly Angelina Jolie’s Thena. Sadly, Eternals additionally killed Gilgamesh off, so he will not be becoming a member of the MCU’s Avengers any time quickly.
Alongside Black Knight, the Eternals post-credits additionally debuted Blade, voiced by Mahershala Ali. Ali’s Blade is ready to get his personal MCU film in some unspecified time in the future. However for now, the one glimpse of him has been the off-screen voice warning Dane that he may not be prepared for the Ebony Blade’s energy. Blade’s addition to the Marvel Comics Avengers was comparatively current in comparison with others, coming in 2019 when he was recruited to the crew by Black Panther to guide an all-out vampire campaign. How he suits into the MCU model, nevertheless, remains to be a thriller.
The grownup model of Maria Rambeau’s daughter from Captain Marvel appeared in Disney+’s second MCU present, WandaVision. In Marvel Comics, Monica Rambeau is the primary feminine Captain Marvel and was an Avenger within the Eighties. She was such an important member of the group that she finally took over as chief. It stays to be seen if the MCU will use any a part of her superhero profession from the comics, however her presence in WandaVision suggests that Marvel has large plans for her.
Shang-Chi has been round for the reason that Nineteen Seventies, however he is not a traditional Avenger by any means. Marvel did not begin tying him to the group till the 2010s. Shang-Chi has shared just a few adventures as an Avenger however remains to be principally recognized for being a solo hero. Performed by Simu Liu, Marvel’s Grasp of Kung Fu received his personal film with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings in September 2021. He is more likely to have a a lot greater MCU future past that, nevertheless, particularly given Shang-Chi‘s post-credit scene, which revealed that the hero’s iconic Ten Rings are sending some type of beacon that even Captain Marvel, Bruce Banner, and Wong cannot decide the character of.
Moon Knight has been on just a few groups affiliated with the Avengers for the reason that Eighties, together with Hawkeye’s West Coast Avengers.
