Since they already have Black Panther and soon will have Captain Marvel in the MCU maybe they could do something like the current Ultimates and then have Galactus as a big bad. Or is he not under Marvel's control along with the FF? Also, the Ultimates would translate to the MCU so darn well (Denzel Washington for Blue Marvel please) but would America Chavez, whose stature is growing by leaps and bounds and whose powerset says she belongs in the A-list, be taboo since she's a lesbian?
Galactus is definitely an FF property - Marvel tried to get him and Silver Surfer back from Fox in return for letting them keep Daredevil for awhile longer, but Fox didn’t bite, hence Marvel getting Matt back and eventually doing the Netflix show. Another reason for the MCU to need the original family, I guess.
Chavez is excellent, but yeah, I don’t see that happening. It should, she’s excellent, but until and unless Star Wars pulls the trigger on Finn/Poe and changes the game in terms of mass-media queer representation, I don’t see Disney letting Marvel go there, assuming Feige and the rest were even interested. Even if they would (I may be wrong; I sure *hope* I’m wrong, because her primary means of transportation is punching and that’s absolutely a character I’d want to see onscreen) I don’t see the Marvel movies going for a group as high-concept as the current Ultimates anytime soon - they’re allowing for way more weirdness than I ever expected with Arnim Zola and Celestials, but I think ideas like the Macronaut and journeys to the outside of the Omniverse are still off the table. And for that matter I don’t envision them prominently bringing in as straight a Superman analogue as Blue Marvel, unless it was instead Hyperion with the whole Squadron Supreme in tow for the Avengers to fight, which to be fair I could actually see happening. But yes, in a world where I control the MCU, the Ultimates are the Justice League-analogue team to make the jump to the big screen.
