Thanos stands out above all the Marvel villains we’ve seen on film, but this Cinematic Universe can use many more fearsome ones.
Currently, 29 films of the UCM and there are many more scheduled to arrive in the coming years. So, since 2008 when it all started, we’ve seen a lot of villains from Marvel frighten the heroes. But without a doubt, the best has been Thanossince they took their time to present it and managed to defeat the avengers and executed his evil plan. Luckily, they later managed to reverse everything, but even so, their impact on the entire saga was brutal. Therefore, the new Phases of Marvel They should show us other great villains out there in the comics who measure up to Thanos or even surpass him. We already know that we will see namor, kang either The High Evolutionary, but there are many more and that is why we make this Top-10. You can also complete the list in the comments with many more evil characters that hide in the darkest corners of the Universe.
Scary characters we could see in the next few years in the MCU.
Galactus is a force of nature capable of devouring planets. His first appearance was in Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s Fantastic Four #48 beginning his period as the great cosmic threat to the entire Universe. Driven by his endless hunger for planets he was defeated every time he came to Earth, yet his existence is absolutely mystical and even spooky. It would be perfect if they added it in the Fantastic Four movie or in Avengers: Secret Wars.Annihilus.
Annihilus When Fantastic Four Annual #6 first appeared, he was called the Walking Dead and he really is worthy of the name. He for a long time he was annihilating planets throughout the galaxy and I enjoy every second of it. He is the ruler of the chaotic interdimensional negative zone so he has an almost infinite swarm of flying space bugs at his command ready to consume anything that gets in their way. He is incapable of feeling pity or remorse and simply takes millions of lives to expand his empire. So he is one of the Marvel villains that would be very shocking to see in the cinema. King Sombra.
The Shadow KingThis creature exists on the astral plane in the realm of thoughts and was created by Chris Claremont and John Byrne for Uncanny X-Men #117. Although he has no body of his own he can possess a person and consume their personality, when this happens it is not just the mind control type, as his intention is to experience the physical world as much as he can, so he spends years in a body using it to living out all his hedonistic desires and ruining the poor human in the process. The Brood.
The Brood Plucked from the imagination of Chris Claremont, with the collaboration of artist Dave Cockrum, they first appeared in Uncanny X-Men vol. 1 #155. Trying to mimic pop culture, these Marvel villains are the equivalent of Ridley Scott’s Alien. Although they are not an exact copy, since they are parasites and impregnate a host with an egg. When the embryo has grown, it acquires memories and genetic faculties, thus they evolve with the aim of conquering the entire Universe. If they make it to the cinema, it will have to be for a real space horror movie. Knull.
Knull, the god of symbiotes like Venom or Carnage, debuted in Venom #3 by Donny Cates and Ryan Stegmanes. He is one of the most powerful beings in existence. Since he is a primeval creature that was born even before the Universe had light. So he could even take on Celestials without a problem. Seeing it in the cinema would be something spectacular, although it may be in SONY’s Venom movies instead of Marvel Studios. The Beyonder.
The Beyonder It would make all sense that we could see this character in the movies, since he is the creator of the Secret Wars battlefield. So, he’s probably going to be in Avengers 6. His almighty powers make him unstoppable and he handles Marvel’s heroes and villains the way he wants. The Fallen One.
The Fallen The first time we saw this character was in Samaritan, Part 5 Of 6 : The Fallen by Keith Giffen, Ron Lim and Al Milgrom. He is the first Herald of Galactus, whose mission was to find worlds that his master could engulf. But since he was very violent and thirsty for power, he decided to attack Galactus even though he lost time and time again. That is why he changed his strategy. Since he began to destroy planets that could serve Galactus. Luckily he was stopped by Star Lord. Seeing The Fallen in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 would be a real surprise, but it sure would shock fans. Abraxas.
AbraxasThis is one of those Marvel villains who were born with the very creation of the Universe. The first time we saw him was in Fantastic Four Annual #2001 and he is the very representation of destruction. And also he is the opposite of Eternity, a character that we have already seen in the movie Thor: Love and Thunder, so Abraxas should not be ruled out as the great villain of Thor 5. The Magus.
The MagusHe is an evil future version of Adam Warlock, a character we will see in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The purpose of his birth was to create a champion of life to oppose Thanos, the champion of Death. His first appearance in the comics was in Jim Starlin’s Strange Tales #178. Mephisto.
Mephisto Considered the Devil of Marvel, many fans are waiting for him to appear in this Cinematic Universe. Especially in the WandaVison series of Disney Plusalthough that did not happen in the end. But it is clear that he would be a worthy match for all those who control magic. In addition, his Machiavellian mind tends to compromise the heroes a lot. So he can be one of the Marvel villains that mark times, since his plots can be linked to Earth or the cosmos. His first appearance in the comics was Silver Surfer #3 by Stan Lee, John Buscema, Joe Sinnott, and Artie Simek.
