While Avengers: Endgame hasn’t even been in theaters for a full week, many people are speculating about the future of the MCU. In fact, GameSpot already has a few villains we think the Marvel heroes should fight next. But did the end of Endgame actually drop hints at what’s coming next? Get ready for some speculation.
This is your final warning for spoilers.
According to Reddit, there is a huge reveal in the background during the final moments of Endgame. In the scene where we see Ned Leeds and Peter Parker reunited at a high school, there is a school administrator greeting the students, high fiving them. According to the poster, the actor playing that role is Ben Mendelsohn. In Captain Marvel, he played the Skrull Talos, disguised as SHIELD’s high-ranking member Keller. Could this be Keller or Talos disguised as Keller?
In the comics, Skrulls disguised themselves as humans and launched an all-out attack in the story Secret Invasion. The Skrulls even had sleeper agents, aliens disguised as humans the didn’t know they were invaders. Could this quick shot be a hint at what’s coming? It’s hard to make out if the man in the shot is Mendelsohn, as it’s obviously been taken from someone’s phone in a movie theater, but that’s not the only possible hint at what’s coming.
In what seems like a throwaway line early on in Endgame, Okoye is talking to Black Widow via holograms, and Okoye mentions there was an earthquake under the ocean. At first, we all thought this was nothing, but GameSpot’s Meg Downey reminded us that Wakanda has had a long-time feud with Atlantis and its leader, Namor. Could this line of dialogue be a clue as to what’s coming next? Could the next Black Panther or Avengers movie be a battle against Atlantis?
At this point, we know a little about what’s happening with Phase 4 of the MCU, but there haven’t been many official announcements about what’s coming next. Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters on July 2, but it will actually close out Phase 3.
