Everything is at a standstill for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.Black Widow, The Eternals, and Marvel’s Disney+ series have all been delayed for months due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Considering the current industry climate, it’s unlikely we’ll be watching another Avengers movie anytime soon. Even so, Marvel boss Kevin Feige and his team are always planning ahead. Given the staggering success of both Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame fans should expect the MCU to introduce another big bad worthy enough to bring the superheroes together for another battle in an eventual Avengers 5.
There are plenty of villains the Avengers could battle, but perhaps no one is more terrifying, tyrannical, and calculated than Annihilus. First introduced in 1968’s Fantastic Four #6, Annihilus has appeared in several big Marvel comics stories, including the Kree-Skrull war and was the primary villain during 2006’s Annihilation miniseries crossover.
