The supernatural characters in Marvel’s roster remain largely untouched, but they bring with them an intrigue and cinematic potential like no other.
With Scarlet Witch’s supernatural angle nixed somewhat, there’s only really Doctor Strange and his associates who qualify as supernatural in the MCU, at least when it comes to the big screen. It’s no coincidence that Strange’s solo movie has some of the best cinematography of any MCU movie to date, or that his battle with Thanos was one of the most visually spectacular.
Not all of the supernatural heroes have these the kind of mystical powers to set up illusions, but each brings something new to the table.
As Marvel wades through its A-List, there’s still the Fantastic Four and X-Men to bring to the MCU. New teams introduced at once cause a boatload of issues though, not least either sitting through an origin story most fans know by now or the obvious ‘where the heck were you?’ question that'll no doubt accompany the X-Men's arrival.
These supernatural heroes, while smaller names than some existing or departing MCU characters, could actually makes Marvel millions. They’re entertaining, intriguing and would enrich the MCU in untapped ways.
