If going by a latest Reddit thread asking this very query, the alternatives are everywhere in the map. Some need Agent Coulson to come back again firstly.

Trained in martial arts, Melinda May is likely one of the true badass girls superheroes of SHIELD, one thing Ming-Na Wen was comfortable to painting. Casual followers could not even notice May has extra black belts than Black Widow had, which is admittedly saying one thing.

She went by so much on a private stage in addition to together with her time with SHIELD. She was basically killed at one level, but introduced again as an LMD. There was one other time when she was nearly killed once more (when thrown into the Fear Dimension), albeit in the end surviving.

In-between, she additionally had an in depth relationship with Phil Coulson, one thing that led her to take day out to be with him when the actual Coulson died. Later returning to SHIELD, she performed an essential position within the Agents of SHIELD finale. Wen even famous above the collection will finish with the idea the story will not be fairly over.

Finding a spot for Melinda May

Said one Reddit fan above: “May would make for a great re-occurring Maria Hill type character, but with the action set of a mini Black Widow.” Yes, some followers suppose if May goes to have any type of look within the MCU, having her seem with Black Widow could be probably the most logical.
