With Thanos not returning in MCU’s 4th Era, a more formidable group of villains is likely to appear soon, the Dark Avengers.
After the events of Captain America: Civil War, the public was agitated by the belief that the Avengers were a group of dangerous characters, doing more harm than good in “saving the world”. Consequently, the Sokovia Agreement drafted by the United Nations was created to control their actions. However, it hardly fulfills any role.
Many Avengers members are comfortable out of the law. For example, Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) spent years fleeing the government after refusing to sign the Agreement but ultimately still appearing in the US in Avengers: Endgame (2019). Not only that, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) also help Peter Parker (Tom Holland) be able to access orbital weapons without the supervision of any government organization.
General Ross (William Hurt) once said that the Agreement was just “the intermediate foundation.” This means they still have tougher measures for the Avengers team. The best direction for Marvel right now is probably to introduce the Dark Avengers – a group of villains led by Norman Osborn. The original comic book written by Brian Michael Bendis and Mike Deodato includes a Siege storyline that revolves around Osborn and the group’s attack on Asgard, then on earth.
The MCU has paved the way for this group of villains. Asgard was transported to Earth after the events of Thor: Ragnarok (2017). The evil Mac Gargan / Scorpion (Michael Mando) has appeared in Spider-Man: Homecoming (2016). And U.S Agent – another member of the group – will be featured in the upcoming The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. There are also rumors that the series will also feature Norman Osborn.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has confirmed that: “Events from the new TV series will contribute to the future of the MCU”. In this context, Dark Avengers will be the perfect choice when the government wants to find a way to control the Avengers with evil powers similar to them. In many ways, they are even more dangerous than Thanos when he can create long-term conflicts over many parts of the film. At the same time, Dark Avengers also has more approaches to win the hearts of both critics and audiences.First, Black Widow will hit theaters on November 6 and will likely introduce a new version of the character. this is for both the Avengers and the Dark Avengers. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will also air Disney + soon later this year.
