It was recently rumored by BleedingCool that obscure Marvel Comics team Squadron Supreme would be making their MCU debut or introduced in the upcoming Disney+ series Loki.
An update from Daniel Richtman expands on this rumbling as he now suggests that Marvel Studios is looking to give the group their own project, however, it isn’t mention if this would be a theatrical release or a Disney+ series.
This wouldn’t be surprising when Loki, WandaVision, and the Doctor Strange sequel are expected to explore the Multiverse which could allow an entry point for characters like the Squadron Supreme.
Squadron Supreme (originally Squadron Sinister) went head-to-head with the Avengers as Kang The Conqueror chose the Avengers as his champions against The Grandmaster’s Squadron.
Here is the roster of the team which is essentially Marvel’s take on the Justice League.
- Zhib-Ran aka Hyperion
- Richmond aka Nighthawk
- Zarda aka Power Princess
- Alice Nugent/Kenji Obatu/Joseph Ledger/Billy Roberts aka Doctor Spectrum
- Kingsley Rice aka Amphibian
- Skymax aka The Skrullian Skymaster (Skrull)
- James Dore Jr. aka Blue Eagle
- James Sanders aka Whizzer
- Wyatt McDonald aka Golden Archer
- Linda Lewis aka Lady Lark
- Tom Thumb
Having them introduced in Loki could indeed fuel the rumor that Kang could be showing up soon.
Another character that could be birthed from the Multiverse might be a villain like M.O.D.O.K.
Daniel also claims that Marvel Comics villain M.O.D.O.K. could be making his debut in the MCU in the near future.
A character that will be getting his own stop-motion animated series on Hulu starring Patton Oswalt as the voice of M.O.D.O.K.
There had been some previous teases from Ant-Man franchise director Peyton Reed he was interested in using M.O.D.O.K. at some point in the future and had mentioned to HeroicHollywood that comedian John Hodgman had been campaigning to play the role.
REED: “Not only have you mentioned MODOK but I will occasionally get texts from John Hodgman. He has long wanted to play MODOK. It’s his mission in life. He’s a huge Marvel Comics fan. John has been sort of lobbying for years ‘MODOK! MODOK!’.”
“We always talk about MODOK because he’s maybe the most bizzarro character in the Marvel Universe.”
With Ant-Man 3 on the horizon could we see M.O.D.O.K. and his lackeys from Advanced Idea Mechanics (established in Iron Man 3) become adversaries in the second sequel?
