    They're yet to really and truly adapt an arc yet. All of the movies have been a bunch of ideas from different popular stuff mixed to form an entirely new storyline. No reason to think that'll change now

    I think this is the most solid and most likely.

    In more detail, with some assumptions made.

    Captain America (3): Sentinel of Liberty
    Red Skull returns, with HYRDA in tow. Turns the state against Captain America, Bucky becomes Cap hunting down Steve-Nomad for the SHIELD, while Taskmaster is hunting him down for HYDRA. Steve becomes the guy to stand for the right even when the whole nation, the whole world community is against him. "No, you move." In the end, Cap and Bucky!Cap take on Red Skull, and the Super Adaptoid to win the day, proving not only that Steve is awesome, but that he can take down someone with all the Avengers' powers combined. Alternately, if Red Skull isn't available, use Viper and add some sexual tension to their adversarial relationship.

    Thor 3: Ragnarok
    Loki's subplot comes to fruition and the cosmos comes down to Annihilate Asgard with the help of some cosmic foes of various renown. Big Giant Epic LOTR-on-steroids war. Jane Foster dares to speak for gods, Thor maybe dies, maybe comes back to life to start the cycle over again. Play up the Shakesperean tragedy, the familiar betrayals, the tragic lost loves here. Also, drop some Asgardian items on earth to seed future stories.

    Black Panther
    Crown Prince T'Challa is abroad in school when he learns that the African micronation of Wakanda is in civil war, he returns home to reclaim his throne, but Klaw, his father's killer (cue flashback) is mining the Vibranium for Klaw's sonic weapons and have control of an Idi-Amin-like dictator who's running the country. T'Challa must prove himself, not only to himself, but to his people and the memory of his father to truly become the Black Panther instead of just wear his father's old ceremonial uniform, and then take on the mercs, General M'Baka and the sonic-weapon-prosthesis-wearing Ulysses S. Klaw.

    Doctor Strange
    Dr. Stephen Strange is a brilliant famous neurosurgeon, who's hands are damaged in a car accident. He ends up searching the world for a cure and encounters a Mr. Miyagi-like old man in the Himalayas, and ends up stopping a magical murder attempt on the man's life, drawing him into this magic world, where the Ancient One's former student, Baron Mordo, is summoning this Cthulu-like Shuma Gorath creature to destroy the world. A third student, Clea provides additional depth, as Strange learns about the artifacts handed down from the gods like the Eye and Orb of Agamotto. Eventually, Dr. Strange stops wanting a cure, but must face his hand issue in order to properly perform the right gestures. At the loss of the Ancient One, they defeat Shuma Gorath and Baron Mordo, making Dr. Strange the new Sorcerer Supreme

    Captain Marvel (just in case)
    Pilot Carol Danvers is assigned to investigate fellow SHIELD agent, scientist Walter Lawson whom she discovers is an alien scout. Lawson, bka as Mar-Vell values Carol's humanity and decides to defend humanity, much to his superior, Ronan's shagrin. Ronan unleashes the Sentries 456-459 to take out Carol and other key targets, and Carol discovers that Mar-Vell is on her side when he defends her wit his immense energy abilities due to his Kree Physiology and the nega-bands. They take on the Kree while ducking SHIELD until SHIELD cracks down and captures Mar-Vell, turning him over to the Kree as part of their peace agreement. The Kree prepare to blow things up again but Carol flies in on her jet, saves Mar-Vell from his fight with Ronan, but they get caught in an explosion together which turns her DNA Kree. Mar-Vell dies but gives her his negabands, so now she has his powers. She takes out the remaining Sentries, faces Ronan and proves, both verbally and physically why humanity deserves to live, and deserves their respect. Ronan relents, but appoints her his Kree representative on Earth, the new Captain Marvel.

    Avengers 3
    Thanos returns, having acquired nearly all of the Infinity Gems, and proceeds to come and dismantle Earth. He keeps dismantling it and it's looking like the Avengers aren't coming together. Hulk is corrupted by Thanos, Stark has a Virus, Thor is missing, Cap's been shot, and some of these new guys aren't exactly the team type. Eventually though, the Avengers pull themselves up out of the mire, and come together, Hulk fights off Thanos' influence, Stark reboots himself, Thor returns from the dead, Cap wakes up from his coma and rallies the rest of the team which at that point consists of: Captain America, Bucky!Cap, Falcon, Iron Man, War Machine, Thor, Sif & The Warrior's Three, Hulk, at least one Ant-Man, Black Panther, Dr. Strange, Captain Marvel, Black Widow, Hawkeye, a couple agents from the TV Show (Mockingbird and Quake?), and depending on Avengers 2/Ant-Man's story, Vision. They fall like flies from Thanos' might until one gets through to Thanos, to his gauntlet specifically and breaks it so it roars out of control and implodes him. Any one of them could be that hero. Perhaps multiple endings, perhaps, if the reality/time gem is in effect, multiple realities occur at once to stop him.

    Man, I like doin this stuff too much. I would do Planet Hulk with Pixar as a CGI film in continuity with the MCU, lol.

    They take elements from it, are inspired by it but by no means will these movies be adaptations of the comics, like some posters suggest MS will do with Planet Hulk or Civil War. That won't happen

    If they used Civil War i doubt they would do an exact adaptation, that's not even possible right now, they would just take elements.

    So, many of you aren't including GotG 2. Do you see it as a sure-fire bomb, or is it just a lack of personal interest?

    Its just too hard to predict where they would take things, from that direction. Guardians sequels? Cosmic spinoffs? We have no idea.

    Re: Planet Hulk ideas
    I like your thought there. Thanos using a jem to transport Hulk is a nice touch. It removes him from the battlefield in TA2 but then you'd need a reason to explain why not just use that on all the Avengers.


    My Phase Three would actually be comprised of two tiers.

    Phase Three: Tier One-Avengers
    1. Captain America 3 2016 summer: showcase Arnim Zolo cyborg foe,introduce Black Panther ties in with vibranium shield plot wise
    2. Thor 3winter 2016: introduce Beta Ray Bill fight Sutur
    3. Iron Man 4(yeah, RDJ new contract)May 2017: Fin Fang Foom introduce Dr.Strange
    4. Black Widow solo Fall 2017: introduce Daredevil, Coulson flashback somewhere, plot Russian mob setting up in NYC which SHIELD can't allow.
    5. Hulk 2 summer 2018: introduce She-Hulk and Leader as the antagonist
    6. Avengers 3May 2019: a defacto Ant-Man mini-sequel as Ultron is created becoming the foe and Black Panther assists in the story.
    Phase Three: Tier Two-Marvel Knights
    1. Blade Fall 2016: origin film but done quickly ala TIH sequence
    2. Punisher March 2017: origin film done right finally
    3. Daredevil Feb 2018(15yr aniv of sorts) using casting from Black Widow film, expand origin fully
    4. Iron Fist Fall 2018: full on origin

    Three films in each year 2016, 2017 and 2018.
    With the lone Avengers 3 for 2019.

    I think all the Marvel Phase movies should be rich with cameos from many of the other Marvel superheros. I'm not saying a bunch of them in each movie but do it smartly so each movie feels like its more than just a movie about the title character.

    If Marvel does this correctly then each Marvel Phase movie will be a big event and make Iron Man 1 & 2 money at least. I predict that if they can give them each a MCU feel then box office will slowly increase with each movie as a build up to the big payoff with the Avengers movies.

    Eh, The Avengers are the big event movie. I don't need Cap and Hulk and Thor in an Iron Man solo movie.I want Iron Man and his story. Cap is working for SHIELD, so Fury and BW even since she works for SHIELD makes sense to involve them in his movie, but by and large I don't think there is any need to bog down everyone's solo movies with other heavy-hitting heroes -cameo or not- just because they're in the same established universe.

    The things happening in a solo movie for the individual character is a big event, within the progression of that characters solo films.

    true I mean Loki brought the avengers together in the 60s and it was so smart having him do it in this mcu - albeit a new storyline. Feige is smart and I'm sure he'll mix and match such as he has done in the past to create great new stories from Phase 2 and beyond.

    I'd rather see a Heroes for Hire movie before I see a Dr Strange one.

    I don't see IM4 happening, nor Cap 3.

    BP, Doc Strange & Hulk 2 are locks.

    And I think we'll get an Inhumans movie before we get another Thor movie.

    So you see a phase 3 with no solo movies based on Marvel Studios 3 biggest characters?

    Good luck with that, bro. 3 c-listers, and a character that has failed at the box office twice replacing profitable franchises.

    Yeah, no way do they not finish out each of those characters with a third film to complete the trilogy. Past that... who knows, but I think it's all but a given we'll be getting Cap3,Thor3, and IM3

    especially since Iron Man 3 is almost done filming. :woot:

    I'd say our chances of not getting a complete Thor trilogy are like 2% and our chances of not getting a complete Cap trilogy are as high as 5%.

    The chances are higher that FOX makes another Daredevil movie than MS not making Thor 3 & Cap 3

    Listen, bro, the studio can't afford more than two movies per year & they want Avengers movies every 3 years. That means we're only getting 4 movies in between ANT-MAN & Avengers 2.

    You really think Feige would rather pump out three more sequels to existing characters than introduce three new characters already rumored to be in the casting process?

    Also, Whedon wants another Hulk. The guy's convinced he can make a profitable Hulk movie. The likelihood of Hulk 2 taking one of those 4 Phase III slots is much greater than the studio rehashing Cap or Thor.

    The other thing you're not taking into account is that because this is a shared universe the individual approach to characters is compromised. That shifts focus from completing solo trilogies to allowing new characters to join the universe.

    So in summary, its either:

    -BLACK PANTHER
    -DOCTOR STRANGE
    -THE INHUMANS
    -THE INCREDIBLE HULK: PART II

    Or

    -IRON MAN 4
    -CAPTAIN AMERICA 3
    -THOR III
    -GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY II

    I think we could get Cap 3 if they don't cover Red Skull in Cap 2. His return could definitely be a good basis for a third Captain America film.

    As for everything else you said...I SURE HOPE SO!
