Poll: Which character would you like to see get their movie next in the MCU? (12 votes)

Daredevil 8%
The Punisher 0%
Jessica Jones 0%
Luke Cage 0%

Ghost Rider 0%
Fantastic Four 25%
Elektra 0%
Immortus/Kang the Conqueror/Nathaniel Richards 0%
X-Men 50%

Marvel nearly owns all of their properties and is free to do what they want with them. With a lot of marvel televisions shows recently ending or getting cancelled it's not unlikely we may see some of these characters recast for a big screen debut. Who do you think will make it first and who do you want to see the most?

Question:

Who owns every gaming rights? I can't imagine Disney owns all Marvel Character gaming rights, and not everything Disney owns is in the MCU. They are clearly slacking in their macking whoever does own all the gaming rights.

So technically speaking X-Men isn't MCU, but yes, the only answer is X-Men.

I said X-men. The issue is apparently Hugh Jackman isn’t going to play that role anymore. Much like Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man, Hugh Jackman is made for the role of Wolverine. So, idk. Lol

My second pick would have been Daredevil. I didn’t watch the series but I do prefer Ben Affleck as Daredevil instead of being Batman. (I know Daredevil Ben Affleck got poor reviews but I grew up watching it.)

There is definitely potential for the less known franchises too.

I believe Mysterio is going to be in the next Spiderman movie which’ll be great. I was always intrigued by that character. Bruce Campbell was going to cameo him in Spiderman 4 but obviously that got canned so I’m in high hopes for this new one.

No idea. Sony owns Spiderman hence the PS4 exclusive game. I know Activision has made games in the past, such as Xmen Legends and Marvel's Ultimate Alliance.

If/when X-Men gets rebooted, in the MCU or not, they will likely recast every character.

I liked Afleck as Daredevil too. I actually don't think the movie is even that bad despite everyone hating it. I think he is terrible as Batman.

And yes, you are correct, Jack Gyllenhaal is playing Mysterio in Spiderman: Far From Home

@jcrame10: Yep, I agree. Affleck does not make a good Batman in my opinion. Just not suited for the Bruce Wayne role in general. He looks kind of chubby in the suit.

If I’m honest, I really liked Michael Keaton as Batman. Christian Bale was fantastic but there’s just something about the Tim Burton Batman movies that I like. I guess it’s more noir and comical compared to Nolan’s vision.

I was born in 92 and didn't see any of the 80s/90s Batman movies til way after so it's kind of hard for me to take them for what they were at the time compared to movies today. I really liked Christian Bale in the 00s movies.

I think the problem is Ben Afleck sucks as Batman, BvS sucked, Justice League sucked....DC movies in general suck.

Really like: Avengers Infinity War, Captain America Civil War, Captain America The Winter Soldier, Thor Ragnarok, The Avengers, Black Panther, Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy 2

Ok: Avengers Age of Ultron, Thor, Captain America First Avenger, Iron Man, Iron Man 3

@jcrame10: Yeah I have a feeling I'm not going to like Hulk or Doctor Strange. How do you find Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk? I've only seen a few clips, and there isn't really a chance of a standalone movie apparently. Wish is a shame.

He's really good. He's featured in:

The Avengers

Age of Ultron

Infinity War

Ragnarok

Sony only owns the film rights to Spider-man. Any and all merchandising for the Marvel characters, including game rights, belong to Disney, and they approached Sony to release the game.

Sony sold the merchandising rights back to Marvel in 2011 because the film division --along with Sony's other divisions--was hemorrhaging money at the time.

The Silver Surfer.....as part of a trilogy with the Fantastic Four

1st movie- Shows his origin as Norris Radd and the origin of his service with Galactus, leads up to and ends with Galactus sending the Surfer out to scout Earth as his prize

2nd movie - becomes a Fantastic Four perspective movie, showing the FF defending Earth from the Silver Surfer and Galactus and ending with the Surfers banishment by Galactus to Earth.

3rd movie - Thanks to Reed Richards, the Silver Surfer is able to locate his love Shalla Bal but she is prisoner to Mephisto, the antagonist of t his movie (a recreation of Silver Surfer #3).

Also I'd like to see a Warlock series with his battles with Magus and encounters with Thanos

Personally, while I think that Hugh Jackman did a great job with the role, when the first X-Men came out I thought he was too much of a Hollywood Pretty Man for the character.

And again, don't get me wrong: he did a fantastic job with the role. But he just seemed too "safe" in my first opinion. Like, too much of a Hollywood bad boy.

I'd personally like to see a version of Wolverine who is smaller, meaner, and uglier.

Anyway, I haven't been paying much attention to the Disney/Fox merger/buyout. Does Disney now officially have the rights to incorporate X-Men into the MCU?

Not yet. Shareholders on both sides approved of the acquisition, but the deal is supposed to be finalized January 1st, 2019. Once it happens, I don't imagine Disney is going to be in a rush to shoehorn the X-men into the MCU right away, being that there's already a full slate of projects (both film and TV).

I'm wondering what Disney's plans going forward not with the X-men franchise, but rather, with the 20th Century Fox Studios overall.

Affleck was a very good Batman.

Anyway I am getting tired of Marvel movie formula.

I have very little interest in Marvel post Infinity War 2. If they really started breaking the mold and put out something amazing then that would be one thing but I have zero interest in seeing any of the TV characters get their own movie. I have negative interest in a Black Widow movie.

I would like to see an Excalibur movie. Simply because I love Nightcrawler.

Where's the option for Hulk? Mark Ruffalo's Hulk is great, and deserves his own movie. Marvel and Universal need to get their legal/copyright squabbles sorted, and make that Hulk movie happen.

Other than that, a Blade movie set within the MCU would also be cool. Blade was Marvel's first real success in the movie industry, paving the way for their later success with Spider-Man and MCU. Blade deserves a comeback in the MCU.

Kevin Feige said in an interview a few years ago that the film rights to Blade went from New Line Cinema/ Warner Bros. back to Marvel. So a Blade tv show or movie is a possibility.

I thought a Nova movie was in the works a while ago, but I guess not.

The inclusion of the Nova police force people in Guardians 1 made me think it was happening for sure, too. I knew a guy a few years back who was really into the character, and admittedly it might have been cool to see what's up with Nova once and for all. Haven't heard of a movie featuring him since.

I gave my vote to Fantastic Four because they need a good movie. What I really want is a Moon Knight movie. Think Batman with schizophrenia.

Namor the Submariner

Also, I don't think a solo Hulk movie can happen because of something to do with Universal and the rights. He can only appear in Marvel movies, not star in his own.

@Crash6:

Be interesting if a Sub-Mariner movie topped Aquaman at the box office. A Sub-Mariner movie could even get the Fantastic Four back in the picture. Reed Richards and Namor have quite a history.

I think it's safe to say that any use of Inhumans is pretty much DOA. Funny thing was, it was initially proposed as a movie.
