Avengers: Infinity War promises to bring together dozens of Marvel superheroes in an epic crossover unlike anything fans have ever seen on the big screen. But, out of all these characters, only a handful have gotten their own standalone features. We just don’t think that’s fair!
Here are five characters from Infinity War that should headline their own movie.
Fans have been clamoring for a solo Black Widow film for years. Scarlett Johansson has made an indelible impression in the role and it’d be great to see her spy character explore the seedier side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And if she could pal around with Hulk like Thor recently did, we’d be even happier.
As long as he’s still around after Infinity War, the Vision is just too unique of a character to leave in the background. His quest to understand humanity is a classic android dilemma, and it’d be cool to see him explore that problem on his own. Maybe they could even take inspiration from Tom King’s excellent Vision miniseries comic in which he creates his own robotic family. Or is that too Stepford Wives?
Everyone has been pointing out how Hawkeye has been missing from all the Infinity War trailers and posters. It’s clear that fans love him, so why not give him his own movie? Make it a day-in-the-life sort of action/comedy. It could be funny to see a non-superpowered person trying to navigate through a single mission where he’s way out of his league. And we just want any chance we can get to ogle Jeremy Renner.
Marvel hasn’t even entertained the idea of focusing a movie around one of their villains, but if they did, Tanaleer Tivan a.k.a. The Collector would be a great place to start. How about an anthology film where he regales the audience with stories about how he came to obtain certain aliens in his collection? It’d be worth it if it meant we got to see how he ended up with Howard the Duck.
This might be a little morbid, but a movie centering around Sam Wilson a.k.a. Falcon should actually be the next Captain America movie. Yes, if Cap should fall in the battle against Thanos, Sam should be the one to pick up the shield. He’s been by Cap’s side since they first met, and it’d be awesome to see how he honors Steve Rogers’s legacy while bringing his own personality to the iconic hero.
