Last year, we saw the Avengers’ first major shakeup in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Avengers: Age of Ultron. By the movie’s end, Iron Man, Thor, Hawkeye, and Hulk left the team, leaving Vision, Scarlet Witch, War Machine, and Falcon to take their places alongside Captain America and Black Widow. Marvel fans know that the Avengers lineup is always changing, but those who are strictly moviegoers are still getting used to the concept. Well, the shakeups are nowhere near being done.

Avengers: Infinity War co-director Joe Russo recently said that many of the supporting Avengers will become primary Avengers during the MCU’s upcoming Phase 3. Presumably this team will be the one that’s protecting the world when the Infinity War begins, as well as the one still leading the charge when Phase 4 kicks off. This means we can automatically exclude Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America. That doesn’t mean they’ll be killed or taken off the board permanently, but with each of them having three solo movies and all the Avengers movies under their belt, their time in the spotlight will be finished.

So with the supporting heroes that we already know, as well as the new characters being introduced in the near future, we’ve come up with the main candidates for who will compose this new Avengers team during Phase 4 (since the Avengers: Infinity War movies will have practically everyone involved), along with reasons why the remaining characters won’t be given regular membership.

Black Panther
When he's not protecting Wakanda, Black Panther has been a frequent member of the Avengers since 1968 in the comics. When T’Challa debuts later this year in Captain America: Civil War, he’ll feud with some of the other superheroes, but eventually this conflict will resolve, and once his solo adventure has been dealt with, he’ll officially ally himself with the Avengers. His primary duty is to his kingdom, but his unique abilities can help other areas of the world, too.
