HN Entertainment has learned that Marvel Studios is considering developing potential film/television projects focused on alternative timelines (Multiverse?) and even the superhero team The Ultimates.
While the Marvel Cinematic Universe is directly influenced by Mark Millar’s Ultimates run, there is also an established team called The Ultimates that deals with threats to Earth and the larger universe, who eventually become the new heralds of Galactus (now the Lifebringer of Worlds).
A good chunk of The Ultimates team has already been established in the MCU such as Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) and T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) along with future superhero Monica Rambeau aka Spectrum (Akira Akbar), who was introduced as a young girl in Captain Marvel. Other members not already in the MCU include America Chavez aka Miss America (lesbian Latinx character) and Adam Bernard Brashear aka Blue Marvel.
What the MCU version of The Ultimates team looks like remains to be seen, but there is certainly a lot of room for a diverse lineup. I personally could see other established characters like Valkyrie and Sam Wilson join the ranks if need be as well.
Given the massive global box office success of both Black Panther ($1.346 billion) and Captain Marvel ($1.126 billion) pairing the two up in their own splinter superhero team film would be smart with their popularity at the moment.
This is only early chatter for the moment. However, The Ultimates along with Young Avengers (Easter Eggs planted in Avengers: Endgame and a Hawkeye Disney+ series) would certainly make sense given that the primary members of The Avengers are kind of done for the moment after the events of Avengers: Endgame.
Marvel’s Kevin Feige is expected to announce Phase 4 plans this summer possibly at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 in July or D23 Expo 2019 in August, it seems a little premature to expect The Ultimates would be announced this early.
