(Warning: The following contains potential – albeit theoretical – SPOILERS for future Marvel movies, as well as actual ones for past Marvel comic-books. Proceed with whatever level of caution that suggests to you is wise…)
Now, with much of the speculation surrounding Marvel Studios’ forthcoming Avengers: Infinity War suggesting that the film will feature , it seems it may well be time to start taking the prospect of a crossover seriously, even if it’s . And so, seeing as we’ve already taken a look at , it seems only fair to take a closer look at…
5 Ways Marvel’s Netflix Heroes Could Hit The Big Screen
And, because (with the recent addition of a Punisher solo series to the Netflix line-up) we just so happen to have five leading Netflix heroes at this point, let’s give each of them their time to shine.
5. Iron Fist Could Make For A Good Sidekick In Doctor Strange 2
Now, there are a whole lot of ways in which combining Master of the Mystic Arts Doctor Strange with flame-fisted billionaire Danny ‘Iron Fist’ Rand could be a whole lot of fun – but surely none more so than the pair teaming up in Strange’s (surely inevitable) second solo movie? After all, the potential for snarky mystical arguments – and Lamborghini gifting (see above) – is near endless, and Strange has often been at his best in the comic-books when accompanied by a sidekick to exposition it up with. Could Iron Fist be that sidekick?
4. Daredevil Would Be A Perfect (Cameo-ing) Mentor In Spider-Man: Homecoming
Now, Spidey may well be set to have a whole lot of potential mentors in Spider-Man: Homecoming – with both Iron Man and Captain America widely expected to offer the young hero their guidance – but that doesn’t mean he couldn’t use a visit from New York’s premiere red-suited vigilante. The comic-book Daredevil and Spidey, after all, have an adorably banter (and respect) filled relationship – one which the MCU would surely be able to turn into a great running joke. A perfect post-credits scene, perhaps?
3. Jessica Jones Might Just Be The Perfect Best Bud For Captain Marvel
Now, with Jessica Jones’ close relationship with her sort-of-sister Trish Walker very much taking center stage in her solo series, there’s every possibility that some of Jones’ comic-book friendships will wind up being largely ignored in the MCU as a result. That being said, though, there’s one in particular comic-book detail that it would seem a huge shame not to throw into the mix: Jessica Jones and Captain Marvel are best buds, and it’s awesome. I mean, just look at those panels up above? Can you honestly tell me you wouldn’t kill to see that sort of snarky yet supportive back-and-forth in Captain Marvel’s solo movie? Someone get Krysten Ritter a movie deal, stat.
And, while you’re at it…
2. Luke Cage Really Needs To Wind Up Hanging Out With The Avengers By The End Of Infinity War, Pt. 2
Now, we may never quite get to see Luke Cage join the Avengers as he has in the comic-books (eventually becoming team leader for a while), with his Netflix origins likely tying him to the small screen a little too much for a full promotion – but that doesn’t mean we can’t hope to see him helping out the team in Avengers: Infinity War. After all, there’s good chance we’ll see someone threaten New York during the two Infinity War movies – and who better to help out the Avengers than Harlem’s own Cage? Especially if that gets him one step closer to full membership (and, hopefully, a throw-down with one of the team’s heavy hitters).
1. The Punisher Could Be The Perfect Antagonist For The First Spider-Sequel
Now, it’s likely too late for us to see Jon Bernthal’s Punisher play a role in the increasingly imminent Spider-Man: Homecoming (especially considering how light-hearted the film looks set to be), but that doesn’t mean we can’t hold out some hope of seeing the two tangle with one another in a future Spider-sequel. After all, The Punisher did make his first appearance way back in 1974’s Amazing Spider-Man #129 – so why not honor his origins with an appearance – perhaps even as a secondary antagonist – in a slightly more ‘adult’ Spider-Man sequel?
Just imagine this, only with added webbing.
And slightly less bloody, brutal murder, I guess.
The big question now, though?
What do YOU reckon?
