The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been raking in fans and money for over a decade now [VIDEO] with aspects like twists, humor, and flawed-but-loveable characters. Between the MCU and other projects [VIDEO] based on Marvel properties, it might seem almost impossible to think that there's a vast amount of Marvel superheroes left to be featured in a major adaptation. In reality, there are beloved heroes that haven't yet been showcased. As was recently noted by Screenrant, Marvel has big plans remaining for the future, possibly meaning big-time movie or television versions of the characters below could be on the horizon.

In an interview with Kevin Feige, Comic Book noted that he said of possible future projects that there are "lots of opportunities for fun, exciting stuff coming up."


Namor the Sub-Mariner has often been regarded as a lesser-version of DC's Aquaman, though Namor arrived on the scene two and a half years earlier. It's understandable though why one might think Namor was a rip-off of the DC counterpart, as the characters do have some exceptional similarities. The character's been included in a number of cartoon adaptations and multiple attempts have been made to make a major motion picture version of the character. As speculation has swirled about whether or not he'll be included in the MCU, Namor has been caught up in confusion over who actually holds the movie rights to the character, Screenrant reported in April.

Moon Knight

Often compared to DC's Batman, Moon Knight is the alter-ego of Marc Spector, a former U.S. Marine who became a mercenary before acquiring his powers, which are heavily affected by the phases of the moon.

Spector was mentioned in, and was supposed to appear, in "Blade: The Series," but the series was canceled before plans came to fruition.

He has appeared in a couple of animated series and a live-action series focusing on him was in development but hasn't been completed. Similarly, "Guardian of the Galaxy" director James Gunn has pitched the idea of making a Moon Knight movie for Marvel Studios, but there hasn't been word as to whether one will go forward, Movieweb noted.


Nova, also known as Richard Rider, is a member of the Nova Corps, an intergalactic law enforcement order. The character has briefly been included in a pair of animated series and the Nova Corps was a focal point of 2014's "Guardians of the Galaxy." Rider himself was not included, but James Gunn has indicated the possibility of a Nova film happening at some point.


Jennifer Walters was a talented lawyer and a cousin of the Hulk's alter-ego Bruce Banner. After receiving a blood transfusion from her cousin in an emergency, she gained toned-down versions of his abilities.

She-Hulk has become a cartoon mainstay over the years and a movie featuring her was planned to be released in the 1990s.

Brigitte Nielsen was cast and promotional photos were taken, but the movie never came to be.


There have been numerous characters to take on the mantle of Marvel's feminine version of Spider-Man, arguably the most famous being Jessica Drew. Much like She-Hulk, Spider-Woman has been featured extensively in animation but has of yet not made the transition to live-action. As touched on by IGN Entertainment, Marvel has recently been moving to feature women more prominently, making a Spider-Woman or She-Hulk project more likely than it had been just a year or two ago.
