Strange characters we hope to see in the MCU

Howard_The_Duck

With Avengers: Age of Ultron now out in theaters, one must wonder what else Marvel has up its sleeves. Technically, we already know what’s up with the slate of films headed our way through 2019! Then again, the recent announcement of an added film (Marvel’s Spider-Man) has added speculation that it’s possible to change up the slew of Marvel motion pictures. Let’s see what other wonders could potentially behold our favorite heroes in future installments.

*NOTE* – These are speculations ONLY and none of this is set in stone.

Howard the Duck

The last we saw of our favorite Kung Fu Fowl, he was hanging out in the Collector’s collection, sipping on a martini, telling his captor he shouldn’t let the dog lick him. But what if Marvel decided to add him on yet again later down the road? It’s obvious he could show up again during Guardians 2 or in some other format. Maybe he somehow escapes the Collector and comes back to Earth. Maybe he becomes a private investigator like he does in the new line of comics. Maybe he finally meets Beverly and they have a strange, oddball relationship. Or maybe, he becomes some sort of revered fighter in the galaxy using his Quack-Fu skills. Either way, I’m pretty sure Marvel could do something pretty snazzy with Howard that fits the universe pretty well.

Now come on, who wouldn’t want to see our favorite squirrel-speaking heroine show up in some capacity in the MCU? Definitely in the realm of obscure, Squirrel Girl has all the powers of your traditional…well, squirrel. I think she would be some great sort of comedy heroine who could show up in A.K.A. Jessica Jones or even Daredevil. It’s just a matter of finding the right actress who could pull off such an interesting character. Maybe get Zooey Daschanel or Kate Micucci to bring Doreen Green to life. Come on, those are great picks!

M.O.D.O.K.

Surely, Marvel has some plan to get the maniacal killing machine on the big screen pretty soon. They already somewhat teased his existence with A.I.M. in Iron Man 3. They already brought Arnim Zola back during Captain America: Winter Soldier for a brief, but satisfying appearance. And it rather fit pretty well in the reality-based MCU. Now M.O.D.O.K. is an entirely different type of villain, and it may be closer to Infinity War before we see him, if at all. But this fan-favorite villian has been cheered upon to show up in some capacity sometime in the MCU. How soon, however, remains to be seen.

There are plenty more heroes and villains in the MCU that could be brought to life. And if Guardians of the Galaxy is any indication, strange, obscure characters can be done justice.
