Re: MCU Phase 3: Have it your way
With Whedon basically confirming Thanos for Avengers 3; I think they have to end the current storyline: Phases 1-3 with a MASSIVE 3 part Infinity Gauntlet series. Why not take Marvel's most epic crossover story and bring it to the big screen?
The Incredible Hulk
Iron Man 2
Captain America: The First Avenger
Iron Man 3
Thor: The Dark World
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Guardians of the Galaxy
The Avengers: The Masters of Evil
Marvel's Trinity: Disassembled (a Cap/Thor/Iron Man movie)
The Avengers: The Infinity Gauntlet
The Avengers: Annihilation
The Avengers: The Infinity War
This way the Infinity Gauntlet trilogy could conceivably feature ALL of the characters and be the biggest trilogy of all time. This would be an amazing end to The Avengers arc. That would total a 19 film interconnected cinematic universe. That's pretty amazing and revolutionary! The MCU could still continue on but with new actors and storylines.
