AVENGERS 5: Predicting All 60 (Yes, 60) Marvel Characters Expected To Appear In The Movie

AVENGERS 5: Predicting All 60 (Yes, 60) Marvel Characters Expected To Appear In The Movie

With Marvel Studios said to be eyeing upwards of 60 characters for Avengers 5, we've singled out the heroes, villains, and supporting players who are most likely to make it into the MCU's biggest team-up.

Yesterday evening, the news broke that Deadpool & Wolverine director Shawn Levy is being eyed to helm Avengers 5. Marvel Studios must be pleased with the Merc with the Mouth's upcoming threequel, but the report also featured another major revelation. 

Apparently, the movie - previously titled Avengers: The Kang Dynasty - will feature upwards of 60 Marvel characters!

As you might have guessed, that got us thinking about who we'll see in Avengers 5. While Marvel Studios has already introduced hundreds of heroes and villains, not all of them would fit into this movie.

So, no, this isn't just a list of 60 MCU characters, it's our breakdown of who we believe would fit into the story as well as which corner of this shared world they hail from. There are bound to be some surprises and glaring omissions which upset some fans, but we think this is a pretty definitive list of exciting possibilities. 

To see who we believe will make the cut in Avengers 5, click on the "Next"/"View List" buttons below.



The MCU doesn't currently have a confirmed team of Avengers, but we're bound to see these heroes assemble in the movie. 

We've excluded The Wasp because of Evangeline Lilly's recent retirement and included Rescue and War Machine as they'll almost certainly cross paths with a familiar face from their past in Avengers 5

Scarlet Witch is bound to be key to this Multiversal adventure as is Doctor Strange. Oh, and it's about damn time Sam Wilson step up to lead this team after becoming Captain America in 2021. 

1. Ant-Man (Scott Lang)
2. Black Panther (Shuri)
3. Captain America (Sam Wilson)
4. Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers)
5. Cassie Lang
6. Doctor Strange
7. The Falcon (Joaquin Torres)
8. Hawkeye (Clint Barton)
9. Hulk (Bruce Banner)
10. Nick Fury
11. Pepper Potts/Rescue
12. Scarlet Witch
13. She-Hulk
15. Valkyrie
16. War Machine

Cosmic Heroes


The new Guardians of the Galaxy led by Rocket Racoon need to factor into Avengers 5 and are sure to do so given his history with The Avengers (it's easy to forget Rocket was a member of the team during The Blip).

With Peter Quill on Earth, Star-Lord could also act as the bridge between both teams. Oh, and while including Nova feels like a leap, Avengers 5 isn't a bad place to introduce the character before his rumoured Disney+ series.

17. Adam Warlock
18. Cosmo
19. Groot
20. Nova
21. Rocket
22. Star-Lord

Street-Level Vigilantes


Earth's Mightiest Heroes are going to face a Multiversal threat in Avengers 5 and even though they're not necessarily as powerful as some of The Avengers listed above, these street-level vigilantes are likely to be a key part of this story.

Spider-Man supposedly has a major role in the movie and can bring together a team comprised of vigilantes like Daredevil and Ms. Marvel. 

Shang-Chi's Ten Rings are expected to be tied to Kang and there's really no one better than Moon Knight to lead a team against his Rama-Tut Variant. 

23. Daredevil
24. Ghost Rider
25. Hawkeye (Kate Bishop)
26. Ironheart
27. Katy
28. Moon Knight
29. Ms. Marvel
30. The Punisher
31. Scarlet Scarab
32. Shang-Chi
33. Spider-Man (Peter Parker)



Okay, we're cheating a little here.

It's hard to predict exactly which X-Men will show up in Avengers 5, though we'd be shocked if the movie doesn't take us to the reality first teased in The Marvels' post-credits scene. Heck, this might end up being a full-blown Avengers vs. X-Men event if their respective realities are about to collide in the Multiverse's final Incusion. 

Regardless, Deadpool and Wolverine being part of the movie is a must given their history with the TVA (and Shawn Levy likely back in the director's chair).

34. Deadpool
35. Wolverine
36. The X-Men



Avengers 5 is a Multiversal movie, meaning we're sure to get cameos galore. Those are typically pretty hard to predict as some actors will pull double duty and others who starred in non-MCU movies are sure to be asked back. 

We anticipate the original six Avengers reassembling, albeit with Variants filling in the gaps. Kahhori and Captain Carter should 100% make their live-action debuts in the movie, while Peter #2 and Peter #3 returning to lend Peter #1 a hand has all the makings of a fan-pleasing moment. 

Throw in the Thor Corps and Agent Coulson for good measure, and we're set! 

37. Agent Coulson
38. Black Widow (Natasha Romanoff)
39. Captain America (Steve Rogers)
40. Kahhori
41. Iron Man (Tony Stark)
42. Mighty Thor (Jane Foster)
43. Peggy Carter/Captain Carter
44. Spider-Man (Amazing)
45. Spider-Man (Friendly Neighborhood)
46. Sylvie



The Time Variance Authority factoring into Avengers 5 is inevitable and this is the perfect place to give these characters the chance to shine on the big screen.

They need to steer Earth-616's heroes in the right direction and perhaps even give them a heads up about who sits at the centre of the Multiverse.

We wouldn't bet on the God of Mischief showing up until the end of the movie - probably when the Multiverse is no more - but that just means he'll be a significant part of Avengers: Secret Wars

47. Hunter B-15
48. Loki
49. Mobius
50. O.B.

More Of Earth's Mightiest Heroes


There are lots of miscellaneous MCU characters who will be a big part of Avengers 5. Wong is Sorcerer Supreme and teaching Abomination and America Chavez, with the latter able to hop between realities, remember. 

Then there's Clea, Namor, and Wiccan, supporting players we think will have crucial roles in the story. 

Oh, and if you're wondering why we haven't mentioned the Fantastic Four in this feature, given the proximity between their reboot and Avengers 5, we'd hold off and give them a part in Secret Wars

51. Abomination
52. America Chavez
53. Bucky Barnes
54. Clea
55. Happy Hogan
56. Monica Rambeau/Photon
57. Namor
58. Okoye
59. The Sentry
60. Valentina Allegra de Fontaine
61. Wiccan
62. Wong
63. Yelena Belova

X-Men? How many of these folks because there are, like, 20 of them floating around as well as the evil mutants. Sloppy work IMHO.
Origame - 6/5/2024, 1:44 PM
Ah speculation based on a rumor. And in list form too. Just what we needed 🙄🤢🤮
StSteven - 6/5/2024, 6:20 PM
@Origame - Hey just be happy that we got the entire list on one page. I was holding off on opening this article for fear that it would literally be 60 pages long and I was going to have to clear my calendar and possibly take PTO to make it all the way through.

@harryba11zack - fine. I predict it's circumcised and the carpet matches the drapes.
harryba11zack - 6/5/2024, 1:50 PM
@Origame - incorrect, from where I'm from we don't mutilate babies.

So brainwashed.

@HulkisHoly - Not mutilating babies means your brainwashed?.....ok I'm a simple man over here, do try to explain that one. User Comment Image

@harryba11zack -

Any outcry against a 4000 year old Jewish tradition which has no basis for ever harming anyone (unless done improperly), is just antisemitism in the guise of social justice.

As a circumcised man, I’ve never had any problems whatsoever sexually or psychologically.

This “mutilation” stuff is nonsense. If a parent wants to circumcise, fine. If they don’t, that’s fine too.

With nonissues like this, freedom and common sense should reign. No one should be forced to do it but no one should be forced not to either since there is no harm being done to the person.

And please don’t cite some bs social justice anecdotal article from Herethis or buzz feed or something.

@HulkisHoly - so let me get this straight here ...., me said, Me from no willy cutting country. and you call me "brainwashed" now you cry "antisemitism" is that about right?

Mutilation: an act or instance of destroying, removing, or severely damaging a limb or other body part of a person or animal.
It's literally the difinition of mutilation, stop trying to turn this into something it's not and get back to the topic at hand here.

@HulkisHoly - "As a circumcised man, I’ve never had any problems whatsoever sexually or "psychologically"
Dude, you're going off on a tangent over a dude with ballzack in his name, who started a convo about his junk.

Outcry against circumcision from SJWs isn’t based on “science” or “mutilation”, it’s based on antisemitism disguised as an injustice. This is true whether they know it or not.
HulkisHoly - 6/5/2024, 6:23 PM
@Origame -

Or like this gentleman, it comes from cultures who don’t understand the custom and accuse it of being “evil”
Origame - 6/5/2024, 6:46 PM
@HulkisHoly - we're literally just joking about his junk ffs.

And it is mutilation by definition.
HulkisHoly - 6/5/2024, 7:00 PM
@Origame -

Yeah. Guess I got a little triggered when he called it mutilation which has a negative connotation. We don’t call piercings “mutilation” or surgery “mutilation.”

I apologize for interrupting your 🍆 convo.

Speculation based on a rumour that'll probably not completely pan out.

Plus, kudos on being able to use Wikipedia and/or Google, buddy.
BrainySleep - 6/5/2024, 1:47 PM
The Lists are all of us and we are the Lists.
HammerLegFoot - 6/5/2024, 1:48 PM
I don't think Pepper will show up. Nor O. B.
Apophis71 - 6/5/2024, 3:56 PM
@HammerLegFoot - We could easily have a scene in the TVA featuring all the main character there including O.B., but that wouldn't mean he would be part of the main narrative or any big fight but all this is likely BS anyway (however TVA featuring to some degree seems likely in some way).

Pepper I don't see in Avengers 5 at all, even if she turned up in Secret Wars doubt it would be Gwyneth Paltrow, either be a recast/variant or suited up the whole time as a background character like a bunch of the Endgame ones were.
mountainman - 6/5/2024, 1:53 PM
Kahori was an interesting character UNTIL they gave her god like powers and now she is boring. Also, 90%+ of the movie going audience won’t know who she is as they never saw What If and she isn’t a comic character.

Please for all that is good and right in the world, no more Katy. She was one of the top things that brought down Shang Chi.

Other D+ only characters on this list are not going to create any hype and will only confuse audiences. With how much lore and story Loki had specifically, I would think that the MCU will only reference the TVA in whatever capacity Deadpool & Wolverine covers it. They could bring in Loki in his new role since the audience knows him, but the other TVA employees will be much less known to the GA than the ones that will be in D&W.

I thought the actor for Namor was canceled. I wouldn’t think they’d want to reuse him or recast before this movie.

Jane Foster is dead.

Coulson is dead.

You listed “The X-Men” as one character lol.

What reason is there to believe that Ghost Rider is appearing in this?

Classic Josh list.
ModHaterSLADE - 6/5/2024, 1:55 PM
It's been long enough. Hopefully Coulson can get an appearance.
MisterDoctor217 - 6/5/2024, 6:09 PM
@ModHaterSLADE -

Imagine Coulson coming in as the cavalry with his Destoyer weapon kicking ass ?

Would be a great moment and would hype a lot of fans who have been with the MCU from the beginning
ModHaterSLADE - 6/5/2024, 7:56 PM
@MisterDoctor217 - Yeah, I'm hoping he gets a big moment after all this time.
