Marvel is a universe that is unparalleled and undisputed. When it comes to the MCU, things tend to change drastically. I’m not talking about the origins or major details, but the characters themselves. There are so many characters right now that are out there but not a part of the MCU, all because someone else has the rights. But now, the situation seems bright considering the MCU is expanding and brought back the rights to so many characters. So, here’s a list of 8 Marvel characters that we love and should be in the MCU. Check it out.
1. Black Bolt
Black Bolt is a character that should definitely be in the MCU right now. Marvel’s Inhumans have been out of the frame since 2017 and that is a sheer waste of strong characters. Black Bolt is a popular character in the Marvel comics and has even given Thanos a tough time. Well, you know what happens when he speaks!
Before Marvel and Netflix spit, Daredevil was easily one of the most popular Marvel shows out there. This is one of the many reasons why fans are ecstatic about the idea that Cox’s Daredevil will be debuting in the MCU with Spider-Man: No Way Home. It’s rumored that Matt Murdock will help Holland’s Peter Parker fight the system as he is framed for Mysterio’s death.
3. Jessica Jones
Jones is a messy character which is just what the doctor ordered. Cox’s Daredevil got a lot of standalone moments. However, Ritter’s Jessica Jones is a character that one could always root for. On a simpler level, it would be great for the MCU to explore some of her lesser-known crimes. So on that, if Daredevil could come to the MCU, then Jessica Jones should too!
4. Kingpin/Wilson Fisk
I don’t even have to tell you about Kingpin’s popularity as a villain in the comics. Vincent D’Onofrio’s performance as the Kingpin is simply out of this world and should be brought to the MCU. He would make a great addition to the line of talent that Marvel currently has. Once again, if Daredevil is coming, then bring him face to face with this iconic villain.
5. Luke Cage
We all know that Marvel’s casting team has the eye for just the right person. And it’s literally every time. Even recently in their Disney+ series such as WandaVision and Loki, their casting of roles such as Agatha Harkness, Monica Rambeau, and Mobius has been perfect. Speaking on that note, Mike Colter was just the perfect choice for Luke Cage. Another character that could make a great addition to the MCU.
Once again, great casting by Marvel. Dan Stevens as David Haller was perfect for Noah Hawley’s FX series Legion. The series perfectly culminated the side of Marvel telepaths and crafted in a way that we haven’t seen before. So if Stevens was to come into the MCU and reprise his role, I’d spend my money without a doubt.
Jessica Jones gave us the marvelous Kilgrave played by David Tennant. His frightening yet fabulous performance made it impossible for us to imagine anyone else in the same role. The Disney+ series Loki gave us the concept of Variants as we saw a fleet of Loki’s variants itself. So why not bring Kilgrave as a variant too and make him a part of the MCU? But if it is to happen, then, in my opinion, it should only be Tennant.
8. Daisy Johnson/Quake
Even though Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is not MCU Canon, people are still rooting for Daisy Johnson, a.k.a. Quake, to be a part of the MCU. Marvel’s entire Phase 4 is based on the concept of the multiverse and alternate timelines. It may sound like I’m reaching, but Quake needs to be a part of the MCU! And if that were to happen, what’s a better way to bring in the character via the multiverse? There could be a reality where Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. happened, and Quake could be a part of the bigger picture. What do you think?
