Fans won’t have to wait much longer to watch the MCU venture deeper into its vast and strange cosmos. So far, only the surface has been scratched even with Thor: Love and Thunder introducing Eternity into the mix. While the entire saga will traverse the Multiverse, culminating in Avengers: Secret Wars in 2025, Phase Five in particular will be quite cosmic. From Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 for The wonders alone, the MCU is being groomed to introduce more iconic space heroes.
Introducing some of these characters could still take considerable time, with some being reliant on more prolific heroes like the Fantastic Four or the X-Men. Others may be arriving soon or may already be here, actually. Whatever the case, these mighty cosmic heroes would certainly be very welcome sights in the future as the MCU continues to expand.
10 Nova (Richard Rider)
One of Marvel Comics’ main cosmic heroes, Nova, is set to make his live-action debut soon in his own project – though whether it will be a Disney+ movie or show remains to be seen. Regardless, this is a long time after the Nova Corps was introduced in Guardians of the Galaxy and the destruction of Xandar was described in Avengers: Infinity War. Richard Rider becomes the Human Rocket, Nova, and a warrior who protects the galaxy after being selected by his predecessor, Rhomann Dey, played by John C. Reilly.
Your project is expected to be one of many Phase Six slots, allowing it to appear in Avengers: Secret Wars. Furthermore, the arrival of Richard Rider could imply the introduction of his protégé, Sam Alexander – a role NoBrandon Perea’s has expressed interest in.
9 Quasar (Wendell Vaughn)
Another prominent and cosmically powerful space hero already has some interesting links to the MCU. Wendell Vaughn was a SHIELD agent, but he gains the use of the Quantum Bands, incredibly powerful weapons created by the being, Eon. Interestingly, many fans theorized that Kamala Khan’s bracelets could have been the Quantum Bands in lady marvelbut the ending makes it more likely that they are Nega-Bands.
Quasar is quite different from his fellow cosmic heroes like Silver Surfer and Adam Warlock because while they are mostly stoic and logical, Quasar is quite emotional and reckless. Like Nova, he’s someone fans have been waiting to see for some time, and he might join his successor Avril Kincaid at some point.
8 Captain Marvels (Genis-Vell and Phyla-Vell)
Wendell Vaughn and Avril Kincaid aren’t the only people who have gone by the Quasar moniker. Phyla-Vell has used this name before, but along with her brother, Genis-Vell, they were also called Captain Marvel. Importantly, they are the children of the first Captain Marvel, Mar-Vell, who was played by Annette Benning in captain marvel.
As such, they both have a place in the MCU, and it really wouldn’t be that surprising to see either of them appear in The wonders – the first movie’s time jump would allow them to be adults, and both would fit the title. If that happened, Genis-Vell would likely be known as Photon, unless Monica Rambeau uses that name, and Phyla-Vell might be codenamed Martyr. In her case, it could come into play as part of the Guardians of the Galaxy Christmas Special maybe too.
7 Silver Surfer (Norrin Rand)
After the threat of Thanos dissipated, the fanbase was questioning who could end up being the big bad in the new saga. For a while, many believed it would be Mephisto, but now it is known that Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror will largely fill that role. Galactus was also presented as an idea, which would logically also lead to the introduction of the Silver Surfer. While that may have been pushed back to the next big saga, his arrival is still something to look forward to.
Norrin Rand, aka the Silver Surfer, is by far one of the most fascinating and compelling heroes in Marvel Comics, and he could certainly direct his own Disney+ series. It might be interesting to see his story of coming under Galactus’ command and traveling the cosmos before interacting with the Fantastic Four and gaining his freedom. Otherwise, a miniseries could also accompany him on his adventures after Galactus’ defeat.
Thor: Love and Thunder ended unexpectedly for many viewers. Many believed that Natalie Portman would be here for the long haul as the new Mighty Thor – though that’s still out of the question – and no one expected Thor to adopt a daughter, least of all Gorr’s. However, it did, and now Thor has a divine new traveling companion, Love, conveniently played by Chis Hemsworth’s own daughter. She might be an original character, but on second thought, she’s probably Singularity.
Singularity is a multiversal cosmic being with a still mysterious origin that was important to 2015 secret wars run. When Love was revived, her silhouette reflected the cosmos as Eternity, so all signs point to her actually being Singularity. However, if that’s not the case, the Singularity should certainly be incorporated into the MCU soon before. Avengers: Secret Wars.
5 Blue Wonder (Adam Brashear)
Many different Marvels could join Carol Danvers, Monica Rambeau and Kamala Khan in The wonders like the villain Ms. Marvel, Karla Sofen. However, a fantastic option would be Adam Brashear, aka Blue Marvel. Despite only being introduced in 2008, history in the Blue Marvel universe dates back to the 1960s. He was a Marine who participated in the classic experiment gone awry, in which he was immensely empowered by the Negative Zone, which could turn him on. The lady marvel if the wristbands are Nega-Bands.
His story would tragically align with Isaiah Bradley’s struggles from The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Although he was not arrested for being the hero, he was asked to resign by the president because the world was not deemed ready for a black hero. He could serve in the Avengers or even the Ultimates with Captain Marvel, Photo, Miss America and Black Panther. Whatever the case, Blue Marvel is a cosmic hero that fans around the world deserve to be introduced to.
4 Marvel Boy (Noh-Varr)
Another Marvel that many are hoping to see soon is Noh-Varr, aka Marvel Boy. In fact, some believe Park Seo-Joon could be playing Marvel Boy in The wonders. Importantly, he is one of the few absent members of the Young Avengers, who were constantly introduced throughout Phase Four. Noh-Varr has also been a part of the West Coast Avengers, Dark Avengers – though he didn’t know his teammates were actually evil – and more recently the Guardians of the Galaxy with her boyfriend, Hercules.
Interestingly, Marvel Boy isn’t even native to the main universe of Earth-616 in the comics, being part of a mission that got him lost in the Multiverse. The MCU could certainly adapt those origins, and he would fit in well with Loki, Sylvie, and America Chavez in the Multiverse Saga. Another option could be to just present him as a normal Kree soldier in The wonders without the multiversal angle.
3 Gladiator (Kallark)
While Captain Marvel, Nova, and the Guardians of the Galaxy get most of the attention when it comes to cosmic characters, many are actually heavily attached to the X-Men, including the Shi’ar. His introduction to the MCU largely depends on the first of the X-Men, but it turns out, characters like Lilandra, Deathbird, and Gladiator can all be incorporated. Gladiator, specifically, is an incredibly powerful cosmic character and leader of the Shi’ar Imperial Guard.
He is incredibly strong and fast, even capable of flight, and would make a formidable opponent. How he acts in the interests of the Shi’ar Empire, who have aligned him with other heroes and made them their enemies. I hope the wait later Avengers: Secret Wars it’s not too long to get Gladiator in the MCU.
2 Beta Ray Bill
Chris Hemsworth is still willing and eager to continue playing Thor in the MCU, but if he hangs up the hammer at any point, there’s already some basis for who could replace him. Sure, there’s Jane Foster, Love, and Valkyrie to consider, but many would love to see Beta Ray Bill finally arrive. It was first provoked in Thor: Ragnarok as one of Sakaar’s former champions before the Hulk, along with Ares and Bi-Beast. Now that Hulk is returning to Sakaar as recently shown in She-Hulk: Lawyermaybe Beta Ray will be there to greet you.
He is one of the few characters worthy of lifting Mjølnir, although he largely uses his own hammer, Stormbreaker. He also has some mysterious origins that can be cleared up in the MCU, and given his four decades of storylines, there’s a lot to adapt to. be in a future Hulk movie or Thor 5Beta Ray Bill would be a welcome sight for many.
1 Starbrand (Kevin Connor)
Because the Marvel cosmos is vast and strange in some ways, there are many great cosmic heroes that fans are unaware of, including Starbrand. Kevin Connor was mistakenly chosen by the mysterious Star Brand, granting him godlike powers. Star Brand has gone through multiple roleplaying cycles passing through multiple other holders, but it may be best for the MCU to follow the latest run with 2013’s Kevin Connor.
In this reality, the Mark acts as a defense mechanism to protect his planet, and so Kevin Connor becomes a champion and protector of Earth, though he has difficulty controlling his near-infinite powers. If he makes it to the MCU, he could claim the title of strongest avenger from Scarlet Witch, Captain Marvel or Thor.
