Marvel comics have many characters in their collection, several of them have already appeared on the screen and are part of the MCU, while others have not yet made an appearance. We tell you some here and what are the chances of them appearing.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been featuring comic book characters and stories for nearly 15 years. During 30 movies, eight series and several shorts and specials, the mcu it introduced various heroes and villains and plans to keep doing so for quite some time. After all, they already confirmed that there will be Phase 7 and we are just going to start the fifth. However, there are many other characters that have not yet appeared on the screen and that more than one fan has been waiting for a long time.

Yes ok Marvel Studios he takes his time to introduce some characters (based on winks, references and brief cameos), Black Panther: Wakanda Forever serves as a recent example of how they plan ahead in the mcu. from meet Namor, and the relationship that will be between Talokan and Wakanda, until seeing for the first time Riri Williams, who will star in his own series ironheart.

For this reason, some of the characters that we are going to name have already been mentioned or referenced in the mcu, though they haven’t officially appeared in-universe yet. Also, you have to take into account the movies he made fox (like those of the X-Men and Fantastic 4) Y sony (those related to spider-man), which featured characters from Marvelbut they do not belong 100% to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

So, since we named them let’s start with the X Men. Luckily, the mcu He introduces the idea of ​​mutants little by little. This year they were mentioned in ms marvel and also in Doctor Strange 2, where we saw nothing more and nothing less than Charles Xavier. In the future we know that we will see Wolverine beside wade wilson in Deadpool 3so there would not be much left to see how they introduce them into the mcu.

On the other hand, another character that we heard about but haven’t seen yet is Blade. Let’s remember that this vampire hunter, now played by Mahershala Ali, appeared (in one way or another) in the post-credits scene of Eternals (2021). Although several fans have been waiting for news about the film starring Ali for a long time, the only thing they received were changes of directors and setbacks. So far it is expected that the delivery (and introduction of the character) will arrive in September 2024.

A very loved character in the world of Marvel (both in the comics, as well as in the movies and videogames) is miles morales. Although we already met him in the animated delivery Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Miles could have appeared in version live action. do you remember Spider-Man: Homecoming? Well, there they introduced their uncle Aaron Davis/Prowler, who even names his nephew. However, so far we did not have an appearance of him in the mcu. We will see what news (and surprises) it will bring us Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse in 2023.

Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse

Let’s continue with another character that is very close to appearing. Adam Warlock has already been mentioned in Guardians of the Galaxy 2where they showed in the post-credits scene that ayesha created a cosmic being (called Adam) capable of defeating the intergalactic group. Now that we are approaching the third installment (which opens in May 2023), the movie trailer already showed us what the character will look like in action.

Adam-Warlock- MCU

Since we are talking about Guardians of the Galaxywe can mention Not goinga character that many believed would appear in the movies of guardians with mention of the Xandarian Nova Corps (the galactic police force). However, so far we have not seen in the mcu nor to Richard Rider nor to sam alexander and it is not known when they could appear (or where).

MCU Nova

Now let’s move on to another very famous group loved by fans of Marvel. The Fantastic four They already had their movies, but none of them are part of the mcu. To pamper some lovers of this family, Doctor Strange 2 introduced us (for a short time) to a reed richards interpreted by John Krasinski. However, everything indicates that the actor would not return for the film fantastic four, that would hit the big screen in 2025. There is still nothing confirmed about which actors will take charge of taking this recognized group to the mcu.

Fantastic 4 MCUs

And while we’re talking about the Fantastic four let’s also mention some of its iconic villains. First of all we have Victor von Doom either Doctor Doom, whom we did not see or have direct mentions within the mcu. There were many rumors that we were going to see something related to him in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, but the movie went the other way. Maybe we could see something about this character in fantastic fourbut there is a long way to find out.

Another character who was closely associated with the Fantastic four is Silver Surfer. Before becoming the herald of Galactus, Silver Surfer it was Norrin Radd, a young astronomer from the planet Zenn-la. However, when Galactus comes to your planet to consume it, Radd He offers himself as his herald and is in charge of looking for new worlds for him in exchange for him not feeding on Zenn-la. This is another character that we could easily see in fantastic fourbut as we told you before, there is not much information about the next movie.

And if we see Silver Surfer we would also have to see the very Galactusone of the most important villains of Marvel that many fans want in the mcu. As we told you before, Galactus he travels to planets impregnated with a celestial embryo and feeds on its life energy. Besides in the Fantastic four, We could also see this character in a second of Eternals. His scriptwriters Kaz and Ryan Firpothey had said that they set the stage for intergalactic and cosmic confrontations. “I think the door is open for world-eating villains…Galactus is one of those iconic figures from the Marvel Universe that they are excited to see”.

Galactus MCU

On the other hand, let’s talk about ghostrider, a character who already had his movies and was in the series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. But so far it has not appeared in the mcu nor are there any traces of where (or when) it might do so. Several actors have already applied to play this supernatural vigilante or anti-hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universebut there was no official response.

Ghost Rider

Although there are many more characters on the list, let’s go with the last one on the note. One that has been talked about for quite some time and that more than one fan of Marvel wants to see is Mephisto. This demon, considered one of the personified incarnations of evil, is probably one of the most prominent in rumors and theories of various series and movies of the mcu. However, it never ended up coming true. We’ll see if Marvel It fulfills the desire of many and includes it in some future project.
