Marvel Studios has plenty of projects mapped out – all the way through 2028 - but there are many roles in upcoming movies and television series that have yet to be cast. Possible side characters for cinematic sequels such as The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (which is not yet confirmed), Captain America 3 and Thor 3 will need to be filled, as well as the lead roles of other upcoming projects like the as-of-yet unofficial Doctor Strange or only-rumored Ms. Marvel film.
But, while there are plenty of roles available in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, there are four big roles to be filled on the television side. Particularly, Marvel’s television series and culminating miniseries to be produced with Netflix: The Defenders. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage haven’t been officially cast yet, though that should change soon – seeing how the Daredevil series begins shooting in New York City this summer.
