Marvel’s Phase Three begins next month with Captain America: Civil War, but fans have known about the slate since it was officially announced in late 2014. Then Ant-Man and the Wasp and Spider-Man: Homecoming were added, giving us even more to be excited about for the popular franchise. Now we’re moving closer to the point when Marvel will announce what’s coming in Phase Four post-2019. There a lot of strong possibilities, but then there are some that stand little chance of happening.

Whether it’s due to not fitting Marvel’s movie standards or too many complications behind the scenes, we’ve accumulated the candidates who are unlikely to star in their own movies during Phase Four. To keep things simple, this list will not including any characters whose movie rights rest completely at other studios (namely the X-Men and the Fantastic Four) or characters who have already been introduced/set to be introduced on TV shows.

Iron Man ushered in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and following that, Tony Stark led two more movies in 2010 and 2013. That’s a great run by itself, and when you also take into account Robert Downey Jr’s appearances in the other Marvel movies, he’s left a huge legacy. Unfortunately, the chances of Iron Man 4 dwindle with each passing month, and Downey recently said that he views Captain America: Civil War as his "little Iron Man 4." Following Avengers: Infinity War, it’s a good bet that the actor will either want to take a break from the role or leave it completely. There’s always the chance a new actor could replace him some day, but not soon enough that Iron Man 4 will be in Phase Four.
