As for the way forward for the MCU on the large display, it’s already widespread information that a number of Avengers have continued adventures in improvement as nicely. With this in thoughts, right here’s an inventory of the introduced tasks that may function the superheroes.

We’ll have to attend some time for this one, although.

Hopefully, the character continues to play an element within the MCU post-Endgame. As Thor: Ragnarok proved, the monster is an entertaining companion.
