There have always been many teams in the Marvel Universe: from right to left. That’s why we wanted to provide a little clarification on the different MCU teams, ranked from least active to most active.
8) The Inhumans
Where are the Inhumans? They were the heroes of the series. inhuman, produced by AMC in 2017. Series totally removed from the adventures of the MCU, Inhuman However, it’s supposed to be canon. And from Anson Mount returned to Black Arrow in Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness, the Inhumans are even a little hotter. But then where are they? What are they doing ? And what are Marvel Studios’ plans with these characters? There is total fog on that side…
7) The defenders
And yes, from the series. Marvel/Netflix have joined the MCUThe team of Defenders It’s officially canon. It’s kind of the same scenario as with the Inhumans., but these days we’re talking a lot more about the Defenders. Made of Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist, this team-up served as a great conclusion to the Marvel/Netflix series. A kind of Avengers of the small screen. For now, only Daredevil has been officially reintroduced into the MCU. And Marvel Studios has some plans with the character, including Daredevil: Born Again. But what about the Defenders then? Hard to say. We don’t know what the MCU plans to do with these characters and we doubt the Defenders will resurface in the same way.
6) The fantastic four
Why are The Fantastic Four so low in the ranking? Because they haven’t been officially incorporated into the MCU yet. Made by Matt Shakmanthe movie is expected April 30, 2025 in dark rooms. Furthermore, at the moment only one name of the cast is known: Pedro Pascal as Reed Richards.
5) Guardians of the Galaxy
Guardians of the Galaxy 3 disrupted the team composition. With this last work, James Gunn He reformed the Guardians team, saying goodbye to some key characters and welcoming a few back. In fact, from the old team, only Groot and Rackoon, who became the team leader. Mentis, Nebula, Drax, Gamora and Peter Quill left their positions for different reasons. Fortunately, Rocket has recruited new superheroes. Guardians of the Galaxy 3 Therefore, it concludes with a new team of Guardians, composed of Rocket, Groot, Kraglin, Cosmo, Adam Warlock and Phyla-Vell. A team even more powerful than the previous one but whose future we do not know. At the moment, we don’t know what Marvel Studios plans to do with this new team. There will be a Guardians of the Galaxy 4Or will they simply appear in other films in the license? Hard to say.
4) The Eternals
Introduced in 2021 in front of Chloé Zhao’s camera, The eternal quickly changed settings. In fact, since its first film, some members of the original team left their positions. ajak (Salma Hayek), Ikaris (Richard Madden) and Gilgamesh (Dong-seok Ma) notably meets death in this first adventure. After, The eternal concludes with several suspense. Some of them like Sersi (Gemma Chan) are kidnapped by a Celestial, others, like Druig (Barry Keoghan) decide to go to space in search of new adventures, while others like Kingo (Kumail Nanjiani) remain on Earth. With this conclusion, The Eternals are divided into three different locations., which does not facilitate their reunion. So is the team still officially active? Hard to say. But one thing is for sure, we will see the Eternals again in the MCU, hence its high position in the ranking.
3) The Young Avengers
They are mocked for the first time at the end of the wondersbut we have known for several years that Young Avengers it will arrive soon. At the end of the wonders, Kamala Khan visits Kate Bishopthe archer of the series Hawk Eye. The purpose of this meeting is to officially create the Young Avengers. A team that, therefore, is still in its infancy, since Kamala and Kate are the only two active members for now. But the sequence in question does not forget to mention Height, Ant-Man’s daughter. As for the official composition of this team, many names are circulating.
- America Chavez (Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness)
- Billy and Tommy Maximoff (WandaVision)
- Affair (Thor: Love and Thunder)
- Toussaint Prince T’Challa (Black Panther: Wakanda Forever)
- Elie Bradley (falcon and the winter soldier)
- it’s williams (Iron heart)
- Skáar (She Hulk: Lawyer)
- Phyla Vell (Guardians of the Galaxy 3)
- loki boy (Loki season 1)
- Morgan Stark (Avengers Endgame)
- white vision (WandaVision)
There are so many names that could join Kamala Khan, Kate Bishop and Cassie Lang, already confirmed, in the team Young Avengers. Now it remains to be seen who will be the lucky ones in this team that could officially begin operating very soon.
2) The Avengers
This is the obvious of the obvious, but since the disappearances of Captain America and Iron Man, the Avengers aren’t what they used to be. Since 2019, The Avengers are paradoxically the main absentees of the MCU. And the next movie, Avengers: Kang Dynasty It is not expected before April 2026. And with the changes due to the dismissal of Jonathan Mayores, this date could be postponed. Furthermore, the Avengers are all scattered from one side of the galaxy to the other, even the multiverse. Obviously the Avengers are coming back. It is a certainty. But who will be the main members? It’s harder to know there. Thor and Hulk They’re still around, but lately they tend to get relegated to second place (especially Hulk). Hawkeye, War Machine and Nick Fury They are starting to get old. Logically, Captain Marvel and Doctor Strange should be the new leaders, supported by Spider-Man and Sam Wilson like the new Captain America. But the official makeup of the next Avengers is still unclear.
Finally, the only team whose composition and activity we have certainty about is the Good heavens. I waited for it July 23, 2025, Good heavens will introduce a completely new team to the MCU. A team whose members are clearly established and whose activity will therefore begin in 2025. Valentina Allegra De Fontaine (Julia-Louis Dreyfuss) has in fact formed a whole new team of alternate Avengers, habitual criminals and anti-heroes to do the government’s dirty work. Made of Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), from Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), US Agent (Wyatt Russell) red guardian (Port of David), Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) and Foreman (Olga Kurylenko), this team will debut, presumably, against the terrible Sentinel.
