Avengers: Endgame will mark the end of the first major chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Beloved characters like Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America, will likely see the end of their time at the center of the now-ubiquitous mega-franchise, which begs the question: who will be at the center of Marvel's next series of movies?
While fan-favorite characters like Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Spider-Man are pretty surefire bets, there's still a lot of room on the roster to fill out.
