Avengers: Endgame has been released and to honor the end of an era, we list some Marvel Cinematic Universe characters we’d like to see in Disney Plus shows.

*Spoiler Alert: The following post contains mild spoilers for Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame. Proceed with caution.

Disney Plus is gearing up to give Marvel Cinematic Universe fans plenty of new, original content featuring some of their favorite characters. We already have confirmations on WandaVision, Loki, and Falcon and the Winter Soldier shows, with a possible Hawkeye series also in the pipeline. Additionally, the animated What If series will give us alternate histories of the MCU. All of these series and more will be debuting on the exclusive streaming platform sometime after the service goes live in the US this November.

Now that Avengers: Endgame has been released, we have witnessed the end of an era. But we are not ready to give up on so many of our favorite superhero characters yet. Since Disney is on a roll, we at Show Snob have some additional suggestions for more MCU content for the streaming service.

Here are five characters we would like to see get their own shows on Disney Plus.

MARVEL’S AGENT CARTER – “Pilot” – It’s 1946 and peace has dealt Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy finds herself stuck doing administrative work when she would rather be back out in the field, putting her vast skills into play and taking down the bad guys. But she is also trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life, Steve Rogers – aka Captain America.…

5. Peggy Carter

I know. Peggy already got her show, but then ABC canceled it after only two seasons. Hayley Atwell’s Peggy was a surprisingly rounded character given her limited screen time in Captain America: The First Avenger and stole people’s hearts as a fierce soldier with a heart of gold.

A limited series with Peggy could focus on how she helped establish SHIELD, working alongside Howard Stark, Hank Pym, and Janet Van Dyne. Marvel hasn’t treated its female characters (supporting or otherwise) very well over the years, and a show about Peggy could also shine a light on the many gender issues that she faced back in the 1960s and 1970s. After all, most of those issues are unfortunately still relevant today.
