Everything Marvel Studios has been working towards, teasing, and setting up for about 10 years will reach a crucial stage in The Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2. The heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will battle Thanos. He will be using his Infinity Gauntlet studded with those gems. Furthermore, he will accomplish something awful. But what exactly will he do? All we know is that the film will be brimming with superheroes and they’ll cost enough cash to purchase the moon. However, where does Marvel go once Infinity War is out? Well, we have it worked out. Here are some other significant comic book events Marvel can transform into their next huge storylines.
1. Secret Invasion
Proceeding with the theme of real all-inclusive events with “secret” in them, Marvel unleashed Secret Invasion in 2008. In it, we saw the alien race known as the Skrulls execute an intrusion of the earth. However, this was done secretly. The Skrulls are shapeshifters. Through the span of numerous years they gradually replaced prominent individuals from the Marvel universe with the purpose of debilitating their resistances and presenting to all of them down from within. Consider it: Earth, numerous individuals with superpowers. An attack would prompt death instantly. In any case, if you gradually tear those superheroes separately after some time, an Independence Day-style intrusion turns out to be easier to pull off.
When Marvel heroes found there were Skrulls among them, distrust spread through their different groups. This in the end prompted the huge superheroes versus alien fights we want to see in our superhero films.
2. Secret Wars
In the mid-’80s, Marvel needed a reason to bring together their greatest characters into one story, so that they could make toys out of it. It’s true. That is the reason Secret Wars, one of the comic book industry’s first and greatest cross-title events exists.
In the story, a strange cosmic entity known as the Beyonder has been watching the Earth and all its powerful superheroes for quite a long time. One day, he chooses to infinitely seize every one of them and transport them to Battleworld, a planet of his own creation. He plans on driving the heroes to duke it out. The champ would be granted whatever he wished for.
Secret Wars was never viewed as an especially extraordinary story. However, it is ideal for an MCU adaption. Envision post-credit scenes which would have little cameo appearances. In it, the Beyonder has shrouded away as an Easter egg out of sight as he watches the events of every single Marvel film after Infinity War. He can be the Marvel variant of the Observer from Fringe. By this point, all the significant players in the MCU will have been well established. They’re all frequently appearing in each other’s movies and are all profoundly involved in each other’s lives. After different philosophical contrasts between every one of them raise strains to their crest, they’re all whisked away to Battleworld to settle their scores for the last time.
As per a fun fan hypothesis, Stan Lee, with his numerous cameo appearances, is the Beyonder. Furthermore, one day he will transport the majority of his manifestations to another planet to watch them battle. It’ll never happen, yet in the event that it does; it’d be one of the best ever.
