Here’s Why A Midnight Sons Series Is Much Needed For The MCU

The Midnight Sons would be a great addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is constantly expanding and bringing characters from the comics to the big screen and streaming.

Spider-Man: Far From Home is the final installment in the Infinity Saga, which began in 2008 with Jon Favreau’s Iron Man and ended with the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. In preparation for the eagerly anticipated Phase 4 and beyond, which will see the return of some previously introduced characters as well as the introduction of brand-new ones, Marvel is now ready to move forward.

Unlike the previous phases, Phase 4 will not only focus on the movie side of the MCU but also on a long list of TV shows that will only be available to stream on Disney+. WandaVision and Doctor Strange’s Multiverse of Madness are examples of projects that directly impact or connect to the films. Moon Knight and the Midnight Sons would be great additions to the MCU if they were to branch out into the world of streaming.

Founded in 1992, the Midnight Sons are a team of supernatural superheroes who first appeared in Ghost Rider vol. 3 #28. Because of a vision that Ghost Rider had of Lilith, Mother of All Demons resurrected and ready to use her demonic children—the Lilin—to take over Earth, Danny Ketch and Johnny Blaze teamed up with Ghost Rider to take on Lilith and her army.

There was a Nightstalker, a Morbius, and a Darkhold Redeemer, all of whom were helped bring together by none other than Doctor Strange. As well as Lilith and her gang, Zarathos and Blade have all been on the Midnight Sons’ hit list, thanks to the Darkhold’s help in transforming Blade into Switchblade.

More sinister and menacing than any other MCU characters, The Midnight Sons are exactly what the MCU requires right now. Infinity Gauntlet’s final arc seemed to stick to a formulaic tone and tone, despite the MCU’s many intriguing characters, stories, and events. A Midnight Sons TV show could give the fans a more adult story in the vein of Netflix’s Marvel TV shows while still maintaining PG-13 for the Disney audience.

Morbius

Given that Doctor Strange is already in the MCU and Blade and Morbius are next to be introduced, a Midnight Sons series also feels like such a natural progression. While Midnight Sons is a crossover between Sony and Marvel characters, the latter is part of the Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters (and without depending on Spider-Man).

Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have grown steadily over the years, with a wide variety of characteristics that can make the transition from comic books to television and film, the MCU can experiment with a variety of styles, tones, and more. The MCU could greatly benefit from a Midnight Sons TV show or movie, which would feature characters from the darker side of the universe.
