The Marvel Cinematic Universe is in a strange place after Avengers: Endgame.

The saga of the The Avengers has been wrapped up, with many of the characters getting the send off that they deserved. Looking ahead, we have a slate and we have directors for various projects. For the most part, it seems that Marvel have the groundwork laid for the future of their franchise.

That doesn't mean that new blood shouldn't come in and shake up the formula. Marvel has a vast library of characters that are just waiting to be brought to the big screen, even more so after the acquisition of 20th Century Fox.

The MCU has done a brilliant job of bringing in talented directors. From unknowns such as Peyton Reed (Ant-Man) to independent horror directors like Scott Derrickson (Doctor Strange), it would seem that Marvel are willing to take a chance. The directing landscape is filled with incredible auteurs who would be perfect to craft a unique Marvel tale.

Spanning genres, the MCU offers directors a unique opportunity to develop the characters in the way they see fit, despite having to fit into an established world. All of these directors have a unique set of skills that would make them the perfect choice for any entry in the MCU.
