Not a spin off but id love another Blade movie. Actually a Blade netflix show would have been the best way to go but that wont happen now.
Too bad Morbius is over with Sony, Blade would fit well in a Midnight Sons adaptation with Ghost Rider and Werewolf By Night.

What's the deal with Ghostrider? Did Marvel/Disney get him back?

When I did my big watch to see all the MCU movies in 2016 the Iron Man movies were right near the bottom for me. Captain America, Thor and Loki, to a lesser degree Hulk (changing actors didn't help) felt like unique characters. What is Iron Man? Middle aged guy who acts like a 21-year-old at parties? Fine in doses in the ensemble movies but irritating on his own. Captain America lost his then present day, Thor lost family and his planet (or dimensional plain or whatever it was)... Tony Stark got his house blown up once or twice?

One way or another, a Guardians 3 is inevitable. I believe that’s where Warlock will be unveiled, plus there’s the possibility of Gamora’s revival to be occur in the third film rather than Endgame.

It will happen. Gunn’s dismissal isn’t insurmountable.
Its certainly not inevitable. Marvel doesnt need it and the second one was a bit of a let down. I reckon only about 50 percent chance right now. Dont underestimate the stubborness of actors and disney.

Don’t underestimate the lure of money.

The movie we really need is thor 4.

Or for them to finally do a hulk movie with this franchise.
I think they’ve realized how hard Hulk is to make work on the big screen. You either spend too much time with banner wanting the hulk or too much time with a big green cgi monster.

It’s a hard character to sell on its own

Stark is not dumb. He is the inventor of the tech remember. His arc is him overcoming himself.

I don't know enough to know, is the Hulk an alter ego, ala Batman or something, or is Bruce Banner not hiding it?

True. Although they have figured out how to write the Hulk better now then during the standalones. The avengers and thor 3 I think showed it is possible to make the Hulk lovable by making him funny but also giving him an emotional backbone. Everyone seems to like Ruffalos banner too. Not so whiny now.
