Stuff I'd like to see in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

In no particular order...

The Kree-Skrull War (An Avengers movie? Fantastic Four reboot?)

The invasion of the Dire Wraiths (it spilled into a lot of Marvel titles at the time, but could come with an added bonus: a ROM Space Knight movie!)

Genosha (X-Men 5, perhaps?)

The Ballad of Beta Ray Bill (seems a natural for the third Thor movie)

And, if they finally make some deal in the future that allows them to get all the various properties in one movie, it absolutely has to be...

Secret Wars (Avengers, Spider Man, Fantastic Four, X-Men, and more all in one place... nerdgasm!)

Looks like the next X Men movie is about the Sentinels, but I'd be on board for all these.

Oh absolutely. When I was reading the comics, the Sentinels were my second-favorite villain after Magneto. I've been waiting for them to be the villain in one of the movies for years.

I enjoyed the first Secret Wars as a kid, but it seems too big to be done (well, to be done WELL) in a single film. Certainly the Phoenix story arc and "mutant war" in the 3rd X-Men movie turned out to be a big stinking pile.

I'm kind of tired of all the mutant stuff in general (though seeing Sentinels on the big screen would be freaking awesome).

Now a Rom the Spaceknight movie would be badass...I absolutely loved me some Rom back in the day (and dire wraiths were plenty nasty). Just so long as the filmmakers don't go the route of "humanizing" the damn thing like has been done with so many inhuman characters in film, the whole "see he's just like other people, not-so-different, blah-blah-blah." Something without children and without (unrequited) love interest. Give me Rom scaring the bejeezus out of normal folks while dealing the heavy hand to the DWs.
; )

Definitely agree about the Avengers/Skrull war, now that would be worth seeing.
