Default Who're Going to Be the Next Avengers Team in the MCU?

With RDJ, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and I assume Scarlet Johanssen's contracts all ending soon there's going to be a huge gap in star power for the franchise. Who does Marvel have to fill their shoes?

Scarlet Witch and Vision are there but I don't think they'll put butts in seats. Spider-Man is a big get, and Black Panther and Dr. Strange have been successfully introduced (Benedict Cumberbatch being a huge get as well), so they seem like shoe-ins. If Captain Marvel is successful then that would provide a much needed replacement for heavy hitters like Thor, Iron Man, and the Hulk; and tbh they're probably banking so much on her that they'll include her regardless. Would also give them a female character to keep the movies from becoming sausage fests.

Nobody cares about Falcon, right? I mean I know he's taken over Cap's shield in the comics which would be appropriate to keep a Captain America of some sort in the movies, but I think he'd just be taking up space on screen. War Machine sounds like a bomb as well. Maybe Star Lord as a hail mary choice. Chris Pratt wouldn't be a bad choice for name recognition. Who knows, maybe Marvel will get desperate enough to throw in somebody from the Netflix shows. I wouldn't say no to Daredevil.

I don't know of any upcoming films with new characters but I'm sure they'll come up with something. Ideas?
