Much of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was built on Disney and Marvel Studios not having access to some of the most popular characters in all of comics: the X-Men and the Fantastic Four. Now that Disney has finished its merger with 21st Century Fox, things are really going to change for the franchise, which has made several billion at the worldwide box office across 22 films.
One of the biggest additions to the MCU's roster is Doctor Doom, who is one of the most popular villains in the comics. This opens up a whole bunch of storytelling possibilities in the future, as Earth's Mightiest Heroes are going to need someone to focus their energy on.
