Phase 3 of Marvel Films begins shortly after the release of Ant-Man. Some of us are already aware of Gunn's refusal to do a crossover with Whedon's Avengers for the Infinity War film. Some users are ok with this move while others like myself, feel utterly disappointed. My dream to see Robert Downey Jr. talking back to a wise cracking raccoon is now shattered. Is there anyone out there who shares my woe?
But I digress, there are three infinity stones left and with the announcement of Captain Marvel as well as the Inhumans being made into films, has got me wondering how they will make these films a moderate success. Some people are still skeptical as to how popular Ant-Man will be as a film since its just about a master thief who can shrink. As far as we know, there has been no mention of Ant-Man becoming Giant-Man and other worthwhile villains for this film have been ignored like Whirlwind, Egghead or Crossfire. Its a pity Iron Man couldn't be more involved with Ant-Man, there could have been a lot more growth for creativity.
As for Captain Marvel and the Inhumans, there will only be one constant and that is the Kree's involvement in their upbringings. Marvel's Agents of Shield are already starting to kick off the Kree's intervention in Earth's affairs which brings me to my speculations as to how some of Phase 3's movies will play out.
First off, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will more than likely dive into Drax's past as well as Starlord's. James Gunn stated in a previous interview that he is going to stray away from the idea of Starlord's actual father but this move doesn't make that much sense to me because Peter's middle name is his father's namesake: J'son or Jason. Plus J'Son aka Mr. Knife becomes an adversary of the GOTG because Starlord refuses to accept his responsibilities as the eventual monarch of Spartoi which is primarily the reason why Yondu was sent to fetch Peter in 1988.
Drax's past however, has got me a little confused especially with Ronan's involvement. I'm just hoping Moondragon will be introduced along with the Mind Gem but the gem can be in the form of the Cosmic Control Rod. Certain members of the GOTG were involved in the Annihilation Wave story arc and since its pretty clear that Marvel is nitpicking characters or story lines from the Fantastic Four as well as the Silver Surfer then why not focus on Annihilus. Annihilus' invasion and his Cosmic Control Rod (Mind Gem) can be the main threat of GOTG2. With the Cosmic Control Rod, Annihilus can bend the inhabitants of Negative Zone to his will and eventually the entire galaxy.
As for Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel, I thought about what story lines would make her interesting enough to watch at the theaters then it hits me...the Kree-Skrull war and the Secret Invasion. The original Captain Marvel will probably pass on his Nega Bands to Carol Danvers before he dies. Carol is currently working for NASA on an interstellar project that will revolutionize space travel but the project is being observed by the Skrulls who are planning a secret invasion.
Meanwhile, the Kree have a traitor in their midst in the form of Yon-Rogg who is secretly working for the Skrulls. Rogg was given the task of assassinating Mar-Vell but he failed to retrieve the Nega Bands. Nega Bands are crucial because they are the only force that can cancel out the explosive but unpredictable force of the Nega Bomb. Mar-Vell learned that Supreme Intelligence intended to end the war between the Kree and Skrulls by releasing the bomb on the Skrulls home planet which would explain why the Skrulls need Danvers project to work if in the likely event they fail to stop the Nega Bomb's detonation.
The Inhumans plot line is simple enough. The main characters of the story will probably be Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Medusa and Crystal. Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch travel the world in search of who they are until they are attacked by a Kree and his sentry. This attracts the attention of Medusa and Crystal who think the twins could be the answer to their prayers. Medusa then pleads with the twins to help her rescue her cousins from the High Evolutionary. The Evolutionary was given a sample of the Terrigen Mists from an unknown Inhuman but it can be written that the Inhuman was the Maximus the Mad Thinker.
Maximus is a purist who considers his cousins like Gorgon and Triton as throwbacks and condemns them by having them serve as slave labor for the Evolutionary. Maximus created the threat The High Evolutionary in order to distract everyone from his plot to take the throne from his brother Blackbolt for himself. What Maximus doesn't realize is the High Evolutionary intends to create a Counter Earth for his creations but this will require the destruction of the original Earth. The High Evolutionary will achieve this devious version of Noah's Arc by misusing the teleportation power of Lockjaw.
Lastly Avengers: Infinity War which will probably be followed by Guardians of the Galaxy 3. Maybe for the Infinity War film will have Thanos going toe to toe with the Grandmaster and the Collector who intend to obtain the Infinity Stones before the Mad Titan does. At the end of the Infinity War, Thanos is defeated but not broken. The war has given Thanos a new found clarity on the universe. Thanos has prophesized that a being of infinite power will give birth to a new universe. Thanos then starts the Church of Universal Truth with his cohort the Magus. The Church basically begins a galactic conversion/ inquisition in order to pave the way for this all powerful being.
This can be the beginning of the GOTG 3. Nova Corps must contend with threat of the Church while the GOTG deal with the threat of Michael Korvac, a human who was effected by the power of the Infinity Gauntlet. Adam Warlock is perhaps the only person who can reestablish Korvac's humanity but he has been captured by the Enclave. The Enclave found Warlock's body after the Infinity War and experiment on him. Adam remains complacent during the experimentations because of Ayesha, Adam's female counterpart.
Rhomann Dey (John C Reilly) who has been studying the history and power of the Infinity Stones, learns that Adam Warlock is still alive on Earth and Adam's soul gem maybe the only way to stop Korvac from destroying the galaxy. Dey goes to Earth to rescue Adam but he is fatally wounded by Zorr and Nebula. Dey indoctrinates Richard Rider into the Nova Corps and Rider makes it his solemn duty to avenge Dey. All of our heroes are spread thin throughout the galaxy and only Richard Rider can unite them.
Those are my speculations. What do u think?
