Despite not knowing which Marvel characters will become a part of Disney’s universe, the Marvel shows in development give us a good idea of what to expect. Continue reading for a complete list of characters that we suspect will call Disney Plus their new home.
When news broke of Disney developing its’ own set of Marvel series for Disney Plus, no one ever expected there to be so many. But now we have Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, WandaVision, Marvel’s What If, Moon Knight, She-Hulk, Marvel’s 616, and a Hawkeye series all in development. Each of these shows will explore familiar concepts established in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) and include cameos from some of its’ central stars. Mind you, the Disney Plus series could also feature appearances by characters from the Marvel TV Universe.
Additionally, the catalog of characters being prepped for Disney Plus is bound to include some newcomers as well. Just about anyone from Marvel’s enormous archive could make the list but there are some who seem better suited for the shows in development than others. Take She-Hulk for instance.
The gamma-infused heroine will be way better off if she’s joined by Rick Jones rather than someone less prominent from her side of the universe. That’s just one example and we have more suggestions for which Marvel characters are better suited. Not everyone on our list has to stick around, but dropping in to say hello should suffice.
So without further adieu, check out the 15 Marvel characters we think need to appear on Disney Plus in the list below.
Agent Daisy Johnson (Hawkeye)
Unless there’s some grand plan to launch a New Avengers Initiative in Phase 5, the Hawkeye series starring Kate Bishop will undoubtedly feature her and a few other underground heroes in action. Daisy Johnson should be among them.
Right now, Daisy is one of SHIELD’s top-ranking agents. She’s been courted by Coulson for the longest time to accept a position as Director but has always refused her mentor. What this tells us is she doesn’t want to be at the forefront of the battle, even if she’s always fighting there. Because of that fact, we suspect Daisy would be willing to join Hawkeye’s band of vigilantes.
Considering Daisy’s past and her proclivity to the shadows, she could find a home with a version of the Secret Avengers. Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) will likely train Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) to follow in his footsteps but she’s going to need additional support and that’s where Daisy comes in.
Since Daisy and Clint have at one time or another been affiliated with SHIELD, trusting each other to form a tight-knit group of crimefighters sounds plausible. Daisy was doing something similar with her Inhuman clan until they got demolished, but maybe the Secret Avengers can succeed where they failed.
It’s worth mentioning that Daisy’s appearance on Hawkeye depends on how Agents of SHIELD’s final season rounds out. The show probably won’t close with Daisy’s death but one can never tell with Marvel. Of course, death has never been permanent so that potentiality could be considered a moot point as well.
Marvel Studios’ Hawkeye is scheduled to launch in 2021.
