Of course, that is totally in keeping with the comic book lore; the first major roster change for the team happened a mere two years into the comic’s run, when Stan Lee had all the founding members quit, and Captain America form a whole new team. And rosters shake-ups became a staple of the
So while the name “Avengers” is likely to stick around movie screens, the team’s line-up will no doubt be drastically different. There are several high profile heroes from the comics who have been members we haven’t seen yet in the MCU, but who Marvel Studios has hinted at, or may be planning to introduce soon, and which could easily become the next generation of Avengers.
This is another Avenger who has been a primary player in the comics for years, appearing in several iterations of the team, primarily in the ’70s and ’80s. In the comics, this ion powered hero-turned-actor’s brain patterns were the basis for the Vision’s, which gave him his more human personality.

Although the Scarlet Witch has long history as the primary “sorceress type” for the team, during several years in the ’90s, the Avengers had another witchy type casting spells on the bad guys, the Eternal named Sersi. Actually, Sersi’s powers were transmutational in nature, which she just passed off as “magic,” but you get the idea.
Supposedly, she was the inspiration for the witch Circe in Homer’s
Since around 2004, the original Spider-Woman, Jessica Drew, has been a part of the Avengers in some capacity (although she was sometimes also the Skrull queen in disguise). But she has yet to make it into the MCU, possibly due to rights to her character being a little wonky thanks to her very loose connections to Spider-Man.
But if Marvel can work out a deal to use Peter Parker, then I assume the same can be said for Spider-Woman. Rumors are that a female SHIELD agent who is a European “femme fatale” type has been cast for
