The Marvel Cinematic Universe is vast and incorporates many characters. Some we see all the time, such as Tony Stark and Steve Rogers, and some we see every once in a while, like General ‘Thunderbolt’ Ross and The Collector.
Of course, not every character can be in the spotlight all the time and not every character gets a comeback after their initial introduction. But don’t you wish that some would?
Below are five MCU characters currently missing in action. Isn’t it about time we found out where they are?
Betty Ross – OK, so there is a good reason for Betty Ross’ absence from the MCU and that is largely associated with restrictions on Hulk characters being used in the movies. But if her dad can pop up in films such as Captain America: Civil War (2016) and Avengers: Infinity War (2018), then surely Betty’s due for another appearance soon, right?
Jane Foster – Thor and Jane broke up. I know this. You know this. But what is Jane up to at the moment? And more importantly, will she ever return to the MCU, pick up Mjolnir and become the Mighty Thor? She damn well better!
Justin Hammer – Unlike Iron Man villain, Obadiah Stane, Justin Hammer is still very much alive and presumably sat around plotting something evil that involves screwing over Tony Stark. Last we heard, Hammer was incarcerated, but surely he has some powerful friends that could help him out? An update on Hammer’s current situation or even a return to the MCU would be much appreciated.
Samuel Sterns – Another Hulk character MIA, but one with a great deal of potential. Samuel Sterns was last seen aiding Bruce Banner in The Incredible Hulk (2008). He was also shown to be infected with the Hulk’s blood, suggesting a transformation into his more common alter-ego, The Leader. So where the heck is he? It’s been ten years!!!
Lady Sif – Pretty much all of the Asgardians are dead, right? Hmm… what about Lady Sif? The character was missing from the events of Thor: Ragnarok (2017) and she wasn’t featured in Avengers: Infinity War either. So, where is she? Anyone? Someone must have her on speed dial.
