The New Avengers Line-Up: Predicting Captain America’s Replacement Heroes

  • War Machine could step into Iron Man's role in the new Avengers.
  • Thor has unresolved storylines and may play a significant role in upcoming Avengers films, possibly meeting Loki and Jane Foster again.
  • Sam Wilson, as Captain America, should be the new leader of the Avengers.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe needs to assemble a new Avengers team, and based on new information, it is possible to predict which heroes could be part of the superhero squad alongside Captain America. There have been four Avengers movies so far, all being released during the Infinity Saga. The MCU's Multiverse Saga chose to let the team on the side for a couple of phases, with Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars finally bringing the team back.
A lot of speculation has gone into which MCU characters will continue as the Avengers following 2019's Avengers: Endgame; however, new Captain America: Brave New World footage confirmed the Avengers are inactive. The footage revealed at CinemaCom from the upcoming Captain America movie included Harrison Ford's Thunderbolt Ross asking Sam Wilson, the new Captain America, to set up a new Avengers team. Based on a few factors around that exchange and the Multiverse Saga so far, a few heroes emerge as great candidates for the new Avengers.
Related 10 Harsh Realities Of The Original MCU Avengers Team The MCU's introduction of the Avengers remains an iconic cinematic moment, but there were some issues with the original iteration of the team. 10 War Machine Rhodey's MCU Role Is About To Change Close After playing a supporting role in the MCU for several years, War Machine could be graduating to a key role in the Avengers soon. Similar to Sam Wilson, Rhodey will finally get to lead an MCU project in the future, with the character being the star of the announced Armor Wars movie. With Iron Man gone, War Machine could occupy the hero's role in the Avengers.
More than that, Rhodey would make sense for the new Avengers team for a couple of reasons. Ross was the one to talk to Sam about restarting the Avengers, which means there could be some level of government oversight going on for the team. As War Machine was on Iron Man's side of the Sokovia Accords and is a man of the military, Rhodey would easily comply with that requirement.
9 Thor The Character Has Some Story Threads Left Close Thor: Love and Thunder was far from the success fans were expecting from the repeat of the Chris Hemsworth-Taika Waititi actor/director duo that reinvented Thor with 2017's Thor: Ragnarok. While the movie suffered heavy criticism for its two conflicting tones, Thor: Love and Thunder's ending set up a couple of stories for Thor's MCU future, with the hero having to raise Love and Hercules coming for him. Meeting Loki and Jane Foster again could be in store for Thor's next appearances.
The character was not present in Captain America: Civil War to pick a side; however, Thor would be a hard one to agree with any government oversight of the Avengers. That said, new Deadpool & Wolverine footage revealed a Thor cameo, with the hero crying over a dying Deadpool in a vision from the "distant future," which should mean Thor will be around for at least one of the upcoming Avengers movies.
8 Yelena Belova Black Widow's Avengers Spot Is Available Close Florence Pugh's Yelena Belova has quickly become an MCU fan favorite despite her few appearances. The character will return to the big screen next year as part of the star-studded ensemble of Marvel's Thunderbolts*. The movie serves to show how Yelena would be game to be a part of the new Avengers team. Not only will the character be working as a member of a superpowered squad, but the Thunderbolts have been assembled by a prominent US government figure.
After making cameo appearances throughout MCU projects in recent years, Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, the MCU's Director of the CIA, will return in Thunderbolts* to command the team she has assembled. Besides her being part of Valentina's team, Yelena Belova joining the Avengers as the new Black Widow could be how she continues to honor Natasha Romanoff's legacy.
7 Hulk The MCU Still Needs The Original Avengers Close Only three of the original Avengers remain in the MCU. With Hailee Steinfeld's Kate Bishop in play, Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye could finally retire and pass on the baton. However, like Thor, Mark Ruffalo's Hulk still has more story to tell in the MCU. She-Hulk: Attorney at Law's finale saw the Hulk return from Sakaar and introduce to his family — and a present Matt Murdock — that he had a son, with Skaar making his MCU debut.
Skaar's backstory and future have yet to be explored in the MCU, and given how a new Hulk solo movie is unlikely, the character could join the new Avengers team. With so many younger heroes or recent additions to the franchise, the Avengers will need the experience of veterans to take on the Council of Kangs and more, and Hulk could help them immensely.
6 Falcon (Joaquin Torres) Captain America Has A New Partner Close Joaquin Torres made his MCU debut in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. The character had a previous friendship with Sam Wilson, as both served together in the military, and that bond only deepened after Joaquin risked his life to help Sam in a time of need. Top Gun: Maverick's Danny Ramirez will return as Joaquin Torres in Captain America: Brave New World, cementing his role as Sam Wilson's new partner in crime in the MCU.
In The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, as Sam Wilson embraced his new role as the MCU's Captain America, he passed on his mechanical wings to Torres, making him the new Falcon. Given his career in the Air Force, Torres would be okay with being part of an Avengers team that is regulated by the government, standing by his friend's side.
5 Doctor Strange The Hero Is A Must-Have For The Avengers Films Close There is no way Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange is absent from the upcoming Avengers films. The MCU's Multiverse Saga has surprisingly used the multiverse not as much as expected, which leaves only a few characters with deep knowledge of how it works. One such character in Stephen Strange, with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness sending Cumberbatch's hero on a sprawling adventure across the multiverse to stop the Scarlet Witch from taking America Chavez's multiverse-hopping powers.
In the film, Doctor Strange learned of the concept of incursions, the collision between two or more universes, which should prove vital to at least 2027's Avengers: Secret Wars. With Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' ending seeing Strange himself go stop an incursion he accidentally created, the character is uniquely equipped to help the new Avengers.
Related Even Marvel Admit The Reason Avengers: Secret Wars Is Going To Make Billions In new CinemaCon footage, Deadpool and Wolverine admit the reason why Avengers: Secret Wars is gonna make billions, and it is exciting. 4 White Vision Vision Could Connect Two Avengers Teams Close While White Vision could offer some resistance to the Avengers possibly being regulated by the government, given how the original Vision's body was treated, the character would be perfect for the new Avengers team for a couple of reasons. In Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Kang the Conqueror showed how powerful he was. Disney+'s Loki expanded that to all Kang variants, which means the Avengers could use powerful characters like White Vision.
Vision's MCU return has been rumored to be linked to the debut of the Young Avengers. Given how he is the father of two possible members of the team, it would make sense for the character to be an active presence in the team. White Vision could then connect the new Avengers and the Young Avengers, with both teams likely being in play for Avengers: The Kang Dynasty already.
3 Captain Marvel Carol Danvers Has A Multiverse Mission Close Brie Larson's Captain Marvel has a job to do, and the next Avengers movies seem like the best place to get it done. The Marvels' ending saw Teyonnah Parris' Monica Rambeau get trapped in another universe, with Captain Marvel just barely missing her as she flew to Monica's rescue. Due to their history, Captain Marvel will be doing everything she can to get Monica back, and her story is perfect for the Avengers films.
Monica Rambeau is in a universe where the X-Men exist, with the character having met Beast and a version of Maria Rambeau, Binary. The X-Men could come into the MCU in Avengers: Secret Wars, which should include characters from Marvel's entire live-action history. Adding in her military experience and extraordinary power, Captain Marvel is a great candidate for Captain America's new Avengers.
Related The MCU Has The Perfect Solution For An Ongoing Multiverse Problem The Marvel Cinematic Universe's Multiverse Saga has proven itself uneven, but there is a key option the MCU could go for to solve many of its issues. 2 Spider-Man The Hero Is The MCU's New Most Popular Character Close Tom Holland will return for Spider-Man 4. The next solo movie for Peter Parker in the MCU is being developed, though a release date and a director have yet to be announced. With Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man and Chris Evans' Captain America out of the MCU, Spider-Man has become the franchise's most popular character. As the essential new main hero of the MCU, Spider-Man should appear in both upcoming Avengers movies.
Spider-Man: No Way Home allowed Holland's Peter Parker to get all the multiversal knowledge he needs for the new Avengers films. Adding to that, Holland's Spider-Man was on Team Iron Man in Captain America: Civil War. That could help him be more okay with the possible new direction the Avengers will have in the MCU. Now, out of high school, Spider-Man could even become a leader within the team.
1 Captain America Sam Wilson Will Likely Lead The Avengers Close Finally, Sam Wilson's presence as Captain America will be key to the Avengers. With Ross telling Sam he wants him to restart the Avengers, it seems like Sam will be repeating Steve Rogers' role as the leader of Earth's Mightiest Heroes. While he might not have powers, Sam has plenty of combat experience to be able to serve as a tactical leader for the Avengers, just like Steve.
After all, Sam was chosen by Steve to serve as the new Captain America for a reason, so it is fitting that the character could be in charge of setting up the new Avengers team. Besides, with the multiverse in play for the two Avengers movies, Sam Wilson and Steve Rogers could end up meeting, each with their Avengers team, which would make the theater explode with excitement.
The Avengers The sixth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Avengers is an action superhero film that sees the heroes assembled across the franchise face off with a deadly galactic threat. With the arrival of Thor's brother, Loki, heroes such as Captain America, The Hulk, Iron Man, and Black Widow are brought together to stop him from unleashing an alien race upon earth.
