10 Movies We Want In Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 4

10. The Runaways

It was smart to not cast the Avengers as early twenty-somethings trying to find their super-powered ways in the world. In fact, it could be argued that the success of the entire MCU hinged on Robert Downey Jr., who was 43 when he first played Iron Man. If Marvel Studios wants a super team who can appeal to a younger demographic, look no further than The Runaways. Not only are they the perfect age, their origin story involves rebelling against their super-criminal parents and a love story involving a lesbian heroine and her gender bending alien partner. The Runaways are also a nice retort to those who feel the other Marvel teams are a bit sexist. In every lineup the group has had, the ladies outnumber the men. With any hope, the Runaways will be casually introduced in Captain America: Civil War. In the comics, they oppose superhuman registration after being engaged by S.H.I.E.L.D. agents in Los Angeles. Perhaps they could cross-over with another "West Coast" team at some point...
