TOP 10 Marvel Cinematic Universe Villains From WORST TO BEST

Why, aren’t villains badass? Well, not always do heroes impress us. Not to forget, the villains are the one who makes us love our heroes more. And when it comes to MCU, the villains of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have had a long and arduous struggle with actually accomplishing what they set out to do in their respective films. Since 2008’s Iron Man, big bads like Obadiah Stane have tried to thwart each and every one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes into giving up their livelihoods, assets, powers or lives in no particular order. And some have come awfully close to fulfilling those promises, proving that they can sometimes be as cunning and smart, if not more so than their heroic counterparts.

And the story is mostly different for every villain. Baddies like Stane, Whiplash and Aldrich Killian have gone toe-to-toe with Iron Man. Red Skull and his Hydra colleagues have tried to take down Captain America on numerous occasion. Thor has handled everyone from the Destroyer to his own brother, Loki. And the Guardians of the Galaxy have come face-to-face with some high-level cosmic threats. But each villain has their own wit and will among them, some just happen to do a lot better than others. And yeah, we know there’s one particular villain who rises above the rest. But don’t worry, I’ll get there now. I am ranking the villains of the MCU, based on their cunning and intelligence, from weakest to strongest.

TOP 10 Marvel Cinematic Universe Villains From WORST TO BEST

Let’s start –

10- ALDRICH KILLIAN :

ALDRICH KILLIAN

The ALDRICH KILLIAN

Aldrich Killian finds himself at the middle of the pack for not his plan, but his execution during the events of Iron Man 3. His villainous origin was sound, in that he was turned down by his greatest idol, Tony Stark, and forever sought his revenge on a man he felt didn’t have enough time for the little people. Killian was a viable threat to everything Tony Stark had built. He went after his home, his suits of armor and the woman he loves, Pepper Potts. And Killian almost beat Stark too, but he talked too much, and his vengeance got the best of him. He deserves a place here.

9- ALEXANDER PIERCE :

ALEXANDER PIERCE

The ALEXANDER PIERCE

Alexander Pierce may be one of the most imposing villains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. For all intents and purposes, Pierce is one of the modern heads of Hydra, and he just so happens to be the catalyst for Hydra’s reveal that they have been infiltrating S.H.I.E.L.D. since the beginning. But you have to be pretty smart to do all of this under the nose of Director Nick Fury, someone who basically knows when and why everything is happening. But Fury was caught off-guard, and Pierce’s will to destroy the agency of the world’s foremost peacekeeping force was the biggest undertaking of the Marvel Cinematic Universe at the time. And we have to give him credit for the fact that he almost got away with it, too.

8- ARNIM ZOLA :

ARNIM ZOLA

ARNIM ZOLA

Behind the main baddie of the film was a lasting legacy for Hydra, one that started with the post-war recruitment of Arnim Zola to the newly born S.H.I.E.L.D. From there Zola was able to plant his seeds of revenge, sending his own consciousness after death into a series of computers. Oh, and he also built the foundation for Hydra’s infiltration of S.H.I.E.L.D., which you’ll remember as the main plot point from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Well, if he ends up like any part of his character from Marvel Comics, then we’re talking about a guy who builds his own dimension and race of people. And that sounds pretty terrifying to us.

7- EBONY MAW :

EBONY MAW

EBONY MAW

Of the members of Thanos’ Black Order in Avengers: Infinity War, Ebony Maw might be the most intellectually powerful. From the moment we see him, this dedicated baddie is the perfect equal to Doctor Strange’s mystic arts. He successfully captures Doctor Strange on one of Thanos’ ringed ships and heads for Titan. He then tortures the good Doctor in an attempt to retrieve the Mind Stone from him, though he is bested by a team-up between Spider-Man, Iron Man and Doctor Strange’s cloak. And while we last see him freezing out in space, we can’t get the image of the gruesome Maw out of our heads. Can you?

6- HELA :

HELA

HELA

As far as villains of the Marvel Cinematic Universe go, Hela is among the best of them, using her birthright and raw abilities to take back what she believed rightfully hers. She just happened to kill a heck of a lot of people along the way. She also destroyed Mjolnir, effectively taking Thor off the board. And sure, the heroes “win” in the end, but at what cost? With Surtur unleashing his Ragnarok on Asgard, Hela’s ultimate goal was accomplished, even if that meant another eternal slumber for herself.

5- RED SKULL :

RED SKULL

RED SKULL

One of the earliest villains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Red Skull was a master of manipulating parts to get exactly what he wanted. During World War II, he co-opted the Nazis rise to power as a means for developing Hydra’s military, science, and technology divisions. And while his plan does ultimately fail, he robs the Earth of one of its strongest peacekeepers, Captain America, someone who quite literally could have changed the face of the war on Earth had he not been taken off the board for 70 years. The guy is textbook evil, but as far as intelligence goes, he’s up there with the smartest of them.

4- ULTRON :

ULTRON

ULTRON

His impact on the Marvel Cinematic Universe is up there with the greatest of rogues that we’ve seen so far. He’s a rogue AI built from the Mind Stone, Tony Stark, and Bruce Banner’s expansive minds. Throughout the Age of Ultron, we get glimpses of Ultron’s intellect, he kills a bonafide Avengers and sends cracks rippling through the rest of them. He’s the reason why the disassembled Avengers struggle during Avengers: Infinity War. And for that, we have to call him one of the smartest and intentional villains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe proper.

3- KILLMONGER :

KILLMONGER

KILLMONGER

In terms of raw ability, Killmonger may be the strongest, the grounded villain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. His motives were sincere and earned, and while they were misguided, he got the better of T’Challa and bested him in physical combat. Killmonger knew the right people to surround himself with to get what he wanted, and he followed that through until the very end. I think he’ll go down as one of the most-developed villains in all of the Marvel Studios films.

2- LOKI :

LOKI

Avengers LOKI

 Loki is the MCU’s most famous bad guy. He made his debut in Thor and became an instant hit. Once he’s beaten by Thor, it doesn’t take long for us to find out that he has an even bigger plan in the works. He reappears in The Avengers with plans to take over the world. He steals the Tesseract to open a door and let in the Chitauri. We also learn he’s working for Thanos, which means he has very powerful connections. Loki seemed to redeem himself in Thor: Ragnarok, but he’s a trickster, so we can never really be certain of anything.

1- THANOS :

THANOS

THANOS

The purple big bad has been behind many of the major villainous moments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He was the one who sent Loki to Earth with what was then known as just a scepter, but really it hid the Mind Stone. That led to the Battle of New York, and the Mind Stone’s place on Earth then led to the creation of Ultron. Avengers: Infinity War finds Thanos in the endgame of his plan to wipe out half of the organic universe. He quickly obtains each and every Infinity Stone. He thought out each and every outcome and put every piece in the right place, all to reach an end goal that he’s been looking toward since he was trying to save his home planet. And guess what? He succeeded.

Joss Whedon insults Gal Gadot’s intelligence, denies threatening Wonder Woman star’s career

Published

on

Joss Whedon Gal Gadot

Joss Whedon has spoken out about his alleged misconduct on the set of many of his productions, including one tense incident in particular between him and Gal Gadot on the set of 2017’s Justice League.

According to New York Magazine, the 57-year-old filmmaker recently responded to his professional misconduct allegations during an interview with the publication, where he claimed he doesn’t “threaten” people and also that the incident between him and Gal Gadot was nothing more than a misunderstanding due to the fact that English is not the 36-year-old actress’s first language.

“I don’t threaten people. Who does that?” Whedon told the magazine regarding the altercation between him and Gadot. “English is not her first language, and I tend to be annoyingly flowery in my speech.”

 

Mega

The incident between the filmmaker and the actress reportedly stemmed from a misunderstanding when Whedon told Gadot she would have to tie his body to a train track if she wanted him to cut a specific scene featuring her as Wonder Woman – but Gadot allegedly understood it as if Whedon was threatening to tie her to a train track for suggesting the scene be removed.

“I understood perfectly,” Gadot said about the incident, suggesting there actually was no misunderstanding due to the language barrier.

But the incident between Whedon and Gadot was not the only drama between the filmmaker and a member of his production’s cast, because he also reportedly butted heads with 34-year-old actor Ray Fisher, who played Cyborg in the 2017 superhero epic along with Gadot’s Wonder Woman.

In 2020, nearly three years after the filming of Whedon’s Justice League, Fisher spoke out alleging that Whedon’s conduct on set was “gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable.”

Following Fisher’s claims about the filmmaker, Warner Bros. Pictures started an investigation into Whedon and his alleged misconduct on the set of his productions – an investigation that led to the “remedial action” from the entertainment company giant.

“Looks like Joss Whedon got to direct an endgame after all…” Fisher tweeted today. “Rather than address all of the lies and buffoonery today— I will be celebrating the legacy of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Tomorrow the work continues.”

Jamie Lynn Spears ditches book tour after public feud with Britney Spears

Published

on

Jamie Lynn Spears

Jamie Lynn Spears will not be going on tour to promote her new book, Things I Should Have Said, and apparently, it’s because she’s not in it for the money.

Sources told TMZ that the little sister of Britney Spears didn’t write it with dollar signs in her eyes, but “she wrote it to address her past, heal from it and move on.”

Apparently, she’s even planning on giving part of the proceeds to charity, but she’ll have to do it anonymously since she already had a donation rejected at one point due to the drama surrounding her family.

The Spears family drama makes everyone else’s Thanksgiving table arguments feel like a trip to Baskin Robbins.

Now that Britney has been released from her conservatorship, it appears she’s on a warpath and ready to take down every family member who benefitted from it, including her sister Jamie-Lynn.

Adding fuel to the fire was a recent Good Morning America interview with the Sweet Magnolias star, who tried to set the record straight about some of the things Britney had said about her.

She said, “When [the conservatorship] was put into place I was a 17-year-old. I was about to have a baby, so I didn’t understand what was happening. Nor was I focused on that.”

She also claimed to have gone out of her way to help Britney, saying, “I went out of my way to make sure that she had the contacts she needed to possibly go ahead and end this conservatorship, and just end this all for our family.”

Britney responded with a Twitter rant, and questioned the timing of the interview with Jamie-Lynn’s book about to come out.

Britney claimed that what bothered her most was that her sister claimed she was out of control and wondered why she was even talking about that unless it was because “she wants to sell a book at my expense ???”

Jamie-Lynn also did a Nightline interview in which she talked about a moment in which she claims Britney locked them in a room with a knife.

Britney again responded with a long Twitter rant, writing, “Only a scum person would make up such things about someone.”

Next time you’re home for the holidays and your family is all up in your grill, just remember the Spears family drama and it will soften the blow when your aunt asks when you’re getting married.

Unvaccinated Black Panther star Letitia Wright was barred from returning to the U.S. after flying home to London to recover from an on-set injury last year.

Wright’s banishment, along with positive COVID tests among the crew. forced Marvel Studios to delay the production of the Black Panther sequel.

Last week the U.S. Supreme Court blocked the Biden administration’s vaccine mandates as unconstitutional. And now production of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is back on again, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Production for the film is now scheduled to continue this week in Atlanta. There are “about four weeks” of filming left on the Ryan Coogler-directed project, according to THR.

Wright sustained minor injuries while filming a Black Panther scene in August. A controversial tweet by the actress appeared to be anti-vax, but Wright denied it.

She later deleted her Twitter page and returned to England.

The sequel also stars Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Nyong’o, Florence Kasumba and Angela Bassett.

Wakanda Forever is the first movie in the franchise following Chadwick Boseman‘s death in 2020 from colon cancer.
