12 Reasons Annihilus May Be The Next Big Bad of Marvel’s Phase 4

The MCU needs a change. The era of Thanos is over. Annihilus – the next big-bad of Marvel needs to fill in some really big shoes. We believe the MCU has already hinted at Annihilus if you read between the lines. Here’s why we think so.

Who is Annihilus

A Chance To De-Clutter

One complain we had for Infinity War and Endgame was that it had too many superheroes and too little screen-time. If Annihilus and the Annihilation wave come in, that could change.
