4. Time Travel
Messing with time in Doctor Strange does not a time travel movie make. On the other hand, there exists a character that would make for the perfect time travel-centric Avengers film.
Of course, I’m talking about Kang the Conqueror.
For those not in the know, Kang is a scholar from the 30th century who has no superhuman abilities, but is a extraordinary genius and is well versed in the principals of time travel. Most of his technology actually comes from the 40th century, as Kang likes to get around (time).

Imagine it, The Avengers chasing Kang through time. I’m not talking about a film that would alter the universe or show us wildly different versions of the characters we love due to time interference. In other words, I’m not suggesting Marvel do their own Flashpoint Paradox with Marvel characters. That would be so uncool, Marvel.
The current team of Avengers however, whoever they may be by Avengers 5 or so, could be involved in scenes we’ve seen previously, similar to the revelation in Back To The Future Part II that there was a second Marty McFly helping the events of the first film unfold in the 1950s. Or, Kang could be trying to erase this team of Avengers by messing with their histories. We could also avoid time periods we’ve seen before all together.
To be a true time travel film, I would like to see multiple time periods as the Avengers battle the time traveling Kang. I say, go all out to long before the MCU, like western times or even before that, or take us far into Kang’s future.
5. Film Noir
Again, It’s important to clarify again that we are only talking about the films of the MCU, not the television offerings on ABC, Hulu, or Netflix. Jessica Jones is totally noir, but what would a noir film from Marvel Studios look like in shorter form, on the big screen?
Though he has been floated as a possible character for a Netflix series of his own, I suggest using Moon Knight. Moon Knight, fairly or not, has been compared to Batman quite a lot, as both are wealthy humans that use gadgetry to fight crime, though to a much lesser extent than Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.).
Moon Knight has a very particular set of skills that make him perfect for film noir. He’s a former U.S. Marine and mercenary, he is a skilled detective (like Batman… cough, cough) and often works as a detective/private investigator, he is an expert in interrogation, a master marksman, and overall weapons master.
Even with these skills and training that Moon Knight can hold over Jessica Jones, there is another way his film would be completely unique from her series; Moon Knight has developed different personas leading some to believe he has brain damage or dissociative identity disorder, though really it is a result of a fairly complicated origin.
