Silver Surfer was already reprised, so the next two up should be Doc Ock and Thor, next two after that should be Black Bolt and Green Goblin and so on.
It's Worth noticing that Black Widow was featured twice in this period, once in regular rotation and once as part of the MCU 10th anniversary celebrations. I am assuming she will be featured in the next cycle too (Star-Lord has been featured Three times too and wasn't skipped last cycle). She could pop up earlier than listed based on her first appearance rather than the out-of-turn one though.
So we've recently had Classics:
Doc Ock - Meet R&G - Nov 1
Thor - Sim - Nov 5
BB - EotS - Nov 22
GG - DPvMPQ - Dec 2
Doc Ock - Sinister 600 - Dec 13 - added in due to rework
Thor - HoD - Dec 20
Looks like they perhaps messed up re-featuring Thor again so early, like they reset the list to Doc Ock, instead of just inserting him. Should in theory be Archangel based upon prior post listing. Not that I complain too much about Thor being featured, but got a 13 cover Angel to champ when he's featured.
Isn't an Angel (arch or not) more Christmassy than Thor? I guess Thor is the son of a God...
Other option would be the Holy Ghost Rider

Hello,I'm looking for a docuents updated with the futur 5 stars characters available for 250 or 500 point, for the year 2019 please.Can you give me a link if someone did it ?Thank you !
My list above is a decent Place to start. The order is that they do the Three fivestars that are available in Latest Legends (currently Kitty Pryde, Cable and Kingpin - they are the 500 CP ones), and then two that are available in Classic Legends (the 250 CP ones). The Classics seem to be in order after when they were most recently run, so future runs should have:
Iron Man (Mark XLVI)
Ghost Rider (Robbie Reyes)
Spider-Man (Peter Parker)
Hawkeye (Clint Barton)
Spider-Man (Back in Black)
The Hulk (Bruce Banner)
Daredevil (Matt Murdock)
Doctor Strange (Sorcerer Supreme)
Black Widow (Natasha Romanoff)
Captain America (Infinity War)
Wolverine (Old Man Logan)
Captain America (First Avenger)
Sometimes they do a fivestar essential that breaks the pattern though. This is just an educated Death.
