The Marvel Cinematic Universe has brought a lot of unique and amazing worlds to life in its movies and TV shows over the years. The advanced African nation of Wakanda showed up in Black Panther. Knowhere was part of Guardians of the Galaxy. Sakaar was in Thor: Ragnarok. Even Titan was shown as part of Avengers: Infinity War.

Other amazing worlds were also hinted at, from the Dark Dimension in Doctor Strange to the Nine Realms in the Thor movies. However, when looking at the history of Marvel Comics, there are a lot of incredible worlds that the MCU has not visited yet. Here is a look at 10 that future movies and TV shows MCU should visit in one way or another.
10 THE NEGATIVE ZONE
With Disney finally gaining the rights to their Fox Marvel properties, there is a decent chance that the Negative Zone might make its way into the MCU. Straight out of the pages of Fantastic Four comics, Negative Zone is a world that Reed Richards discovered and built a portal to enter. The Fantastic Four have been there many times.

Now, there is the possibility that the Quantum Realm from the Ant-Man movies is MCU’s version of the Negative Zone. There was also a version introduced in the non-MCU movie Fantastic Four in 2015 but until Annihilus or Blastaar show up, it isn’t the real Negative Zone.
Along with Fantastic Four, Disney now has the rights to Doctor Doom. While Doom, and his home of Latveria, played into the first two Fantastic Four movies, the MCU has never had the rights to the fictional country until now. With so many fans still wanting to see Doctor Doom done right, it is a perfect time to look into bringing Latveria into the MCU.

Latveria is a small eastern European country and is ruled over by Victor von Doom, who for much of his comic book existence is a beloved leader there while a supervillain to the rest of the world. It also provides Doom with something few villains have — diplomatic immunity. It is also the neighboring country of Marvel’s version of Transylvania.
With the mutants coming to the MCU, Marvel has a chance to introduce Genosha to fans. Now, there are some rumors that Genosha might play a role in the next X-Men movie Dark Phoenix but that was part of the Fox movies before they joined Marvel and the MCU. Genosha is a small country off the coast of Africa and was a safe haven and home for mutants.
If Genosha is part of that movie, maybe Marvel could want to go with the updated home for mutants in Marvel Comics and introduce the fictional city of Madripoor, which was turned into a home for mutants after Mystique purchased it from Hydra.
7 SAVAGE LAND
There have been a ton of rumors over the years that the MCU wants to make a movie about Kazar and his home in the Savage Land. This is a tropical location that still homes prehistoric life, such as dinosaurs and saber-tooth tigers, the most famous of which is Kazar’s pet Zabu.
The Savage Land remains protected as its location is a mystery to almost everyone on Earth. There are some who know how to find it, including Magneto, Iron Man, the X-Men, and a few others. Expect one day to finally see this incredible world from Marvel Comics when Kazar finally gets his time to shine.
Thanks to two things, never expect to see the world of Atlantis in the MCU. The first reason is because of Aquaman. Much like the Greek Gods from Marvel Comics like Hercules won’t show up due to Wonder Woman, it would be too confusing to have Atlantis in both comic book worlds. The second reason is that Disney still doesn’t have the exclusive rights to Namor, the Sub Mariner.

Just like Aquaman is the King of Atlantis in DC, Namor is the King of Atlantis in Marvel. He is very different from Aquaman, a total jerk most of the time who might be the most antagonistic superhero in Marvel. Maybe one day Namor will show up, but don’t expect to see Atlantis anytime soon.
5 ASGARD ON EARTH
Asgard on Earth could happen. Remember, at the end of Thor: Ragnarok, the Asgardians all set off on a spacecraft to find a new home. Sadly, at the start of Avengers: Infinity War, they basically all died. However, there is a good chance that Avengers: Endgame will resurrect many of them but they still need a new home.
This was hinted at in the first Thor movie, as the film took place in the desert communities in Arizona. In the comics, it was Oklahoma and New Asgard was placed in a giant area there for the Gods of Asgard to live in peace. Asgard on Earth has a ton of potential in the MCU.
Beyond-Realm is the origin point for everything that has ever happened in the entire Marvel Universe. Comic book fans should know the name The Beyonder, as he was who abducted most of the Earth’s heroes and villains and had them battle in Secret Wars.

Beyond-Realm could give MCU a chance to really blow fans minds, but it would first need to delve a bit deeper into the stories coming from the Marvel Cosmic Universe. Everyone from Beyonder to other celestial beings like The Living Tribunal and Eternity could be introduced into this world. A story with just The Beyonder could be the perfect introduction to this amazing world.
3 X-MEN ALTERNATE WORLDS
With the X-Men in the MCU for the first time, Marvel will have to decide what kind of stories it wants to tell with the mutants. While they have their critics, the X-Men movies to date have told some of the best basic stories from the comics, from their battles with the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants to Apocalypse, the Hellfire Club, and Dark Phoenix.

However, looking at X-Men: Days of Future Past, the movies introduced the idea of alternate worlds. There are many of them, from the Age of Apocalypse and Days of Future Past to Mojoverse and Askaniverse, there are tons of options if the MCU wants to really play with what makes X-Men unique.
2 THE WORLD OF OLD MAN LOGAN
While possibly just another X-Men alternate world, the idea of Old Man Logan goes further than just another X-Men story. In this world, the bad guys won and defeated almost every hero. The villains, Doctor Doom, Magneto, Red Skull and a vicious Hulk split up the country between them.
What was left on Earth was Logan, who had retired after the X-Men died, a blind Hawkeye, and a few others trying to survive. There is even an Old Man Quill comic coming that brings an old Star-Lord to this Marvel world. Logan showed the elder version in our world, but this Marvel world has still not appeared in the MCU.
1 MONSTER ISLE
Marvel hasn’t made a true monster movie yet unless you count The Incredible Hulk. When it comes to the monsters in Marvel Comics, there are a ton including Morbius (who is still controlled by Sony), Frankenstein’s Monster, Man-Thing, The Living Werewolf, and others. There is even a home to monsters in Marvel called Monster Isle.
This used to be the base for Mole Man, the villain from the first issue of Fantastic Four. The island has been home to many monsters, including Gorgilla, It the Living Colossus, Fin Fang Foom, and even Thing from the Fantastic Four at one point.
