West Coast Avengers Movie
West Coast Avengers is one of those titles that I have come across many times while putting away comics in the 50 cent section of my local comic shop. I never really thought much about them while putting them away, I always just figured they were a cheap knock off team that was probably an attempt to just make more money by making one more Avengers book. But in the two years that I have been listening to the Geek History Lesson podcast I have slowly learned a little bit about the team and my curiosity has grown. But with the 100th episode of the podcast they focused on West Coast Avengers and I realized that Marvel has laid a lot of groundwork to bring the team to the MCU if they wanted to. A good amount of the members have already been introduced in the movies and since most of them have only background parts to play in the major films it would be great to see them brought together for a movie of their own to give them a chance to shine.
I would like to see Marvel put Hawkeye, Mockingbird, Black Widow, Ant-Man and War Machine on the team. It would also be fun to see Sif get some more screen time as a member of the West Coast Avengers. But if Jamie Alexander doesn’t have the time or want to come back, how cool would it be to see Marvel introduce Valkyrie into the MCU and have her as a member of the team? And then maybe introduce some new heroes onto the team like maybe White Tiger or if they really want to have some fun go with some of the more comedic characters like Squirrel Girl.
But these are just my thoughts on the potential of a West Coast Avengers movie. Even though there are no signs that Marvel and Disney are even somewhat interested in bringing the Avenger’s B team to the big screen. Let me know what you think.
