Who’s Your Favorite Marvel Villain?

The week has passed and that means it’s time for another weekly Who’s Your Favorite segment. Last week I asked you all who was your favorite Marvel hero and you all made sure your voices were heard as you shared your thoughts and praises of Marvel’s superheroes. So, this week I’m excited to see which Marvel villain is the one you happen to enjoy the most. Here they are.

Ronan the Accuser

Ronan the Accuser, a deranged Kree terrorist whose despisal against Xandarians led him on a path of revenge, of course, aided by Thanos. This is an interesting storyline because as we can see from Captain Marvel‘s teaser there was a time when he wasn’t the crazed warrior we see in Guardians of the Galaxy. So what happened in that timespan? Thankfully we’ll soon get some answers.

General “Thunderbolt” Ross

General “Thunderbolt” Ross was an acclaimed soldier of the US Army but his greed for power led him to become the abomination you see in the picture above. He had an awful fate. 😦

Malekith

To be honest, I don’t remember Malekith’s motivations very well so I’m going to keep this short. Malekith was the leader of the Dark Elves and his quest to dominate the galaxy (or something like that) led him on a collision course with the mighty Thor.

Two New Live-Action Series Have Been Officially Announced for the Disney Streaming Service

When Disney announced it was making its own streaming service I wasn’t exactly sure how awesome that was going to be. Then it was announced that Star Wars was going to have its first live-action Star Wars series on the streaming service and my mind was utterly blown. But the exciting announcements haven’t stopped there. Recently rumors surrounding live-action series for some of the MCU’s most prominent characters (Loki, Falcon, The Winter Soldier, and Scarlet Witch) have been mentioned as well.

Disney CEO Bob Iger just announced today that there will indeed be more live-action series and they will involve Rogue One‘s Cassian Andor and Loki. How exciting is that?!

Cassian was my favorite character in Rogue One because of his compelling storyline and now that backstory that I’ve been so interested to learn is going to be told in live-action series form. Awesome!

And Loki has also become one of my favorite characters in the MCU and so even though he perished at the literal hand of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War his story will live on through this live-action series.

And the best news is that both Diego Luna and Tom Hiddleston will reprise their roles for these series. I honestly couldn’t be more excited about this streaming service. Two Star Wars live-action series, at least one Marvel live-action show, the final season of The Clone Wars, and who knows what else will be planned. Thank you, Disney. You have made my day.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day.

 

Loki and Scarlet Witch May Be Getting Their Own Live-Action TV Shows

If you may recall Disney is making their own streaming service which is set to arrive next year and it’s going to have all sorts of incredible Disney stuff on it. From a live-action Star Wars show to new live-action movies (like 101 Dalmations) set only to debut on the streaming service. But now, in the last 24 hours, rumors have arrived that it seems that Disney is looking to make some rather awesome live-action Marvel shows focusing on actual characters from the MCU. And, as you can probably guess from the title of this post, the two characters who are front in line to get their own show is yours truly, Loki and Scarlet Witch.

Now, nothing has been confirmed yet but this news seems pretty legit and most likely will happen. The actors who play the characters also haven’t confirmed that they’ll return for these potential live-action shows but it’s still an exciting prospect all the same.

Ranking the Marvel Villains: From Worst to Best

The last time I wrote this post was in March of this year which was a full month before Avengers: Infinity War came out. Now, with the Marvel year over and a few new villains under the franchise’s belt it’s time to update this ranking.

20. Malekith

Malekith is still the worst villain in Marvel.

19. Ronan the Accuser

mv5bmjexnzkxmjmzmv5bml5banbnxkftztgwodkxotmymje-_v1_-1.jpg

While Guardians of the Galaxy will always remain as one of my favorite Marvel films Ronan is just…corny.

18. Yellow Jacket

I like Yellow Jacket’s suit, I don’t like the man within the suit. He was way too cliché and that can be a problem.

If It Weren’t for Loki Thanos’s Infinity Stone Quest Wouldn’t Have Happened

The arrival of Thanos has been building since The Avengers introduced him in its first end-credits scene and he finally fully arrived in this year’s Avengers: Infinity War. His quest to retrieve all six Infinity Stones was the main basis of Infinity War‘s story and to everyone’s great horror he actually achieved his goal, wiping out half of all existence in the process. But how did this happen? What steps did he take to committing this horrific deed? And who unknowingly aided him in this genocidal quest? Loki, that’s who. Let me tell you why.

Before I get to the events of Avengers: Infinity War let’s look back at Thor: The Dark World. While this movie is clearly one of the worst installments in the Marvel franchise it does play a key part in Thor and Loki’s relationship as it shows the brothers become allies truly for the first time in the MCU.

Loki ends up “dying” and that’s when this revelation begins. When Loki “died” and assumed the throne in the form of Odin that was supposedly four years before the events of Thor: Ragnarok. In those years Asgard was leaderless and the nine realms were thrown into chaos while Loki sat around looking at plays and enjoying life.

Now that’s where this revelation introduces Etri the Dwarf.

‘Star Wars’ or Marvel: Who Has The Best Villains?

Star Wars and Marvel are the two mega-franchises dominating the cinema world right now so of course comparisons are going to be made. There are a lot of elements that can be compared between the two franchises but one thing that is a huge staple to a movie is its villain. If the antagonist is memorable the film is unforgettable. If the villain is kind of lame seven times out of ten that movie is going to easily be a mediocre film. Star Wars was built off of the basis of heroes and villains and Marvel has, much in the same way, been built on that same foundation too.

So, today I’m going to compare three of the franchises’ best villains and see whether Star Wars or Marvel comes out on top. Enjoy!

Who’s Your Favorite Marvel Villain?

This week has passed and that means it’s time for another weekly Who’s Your segment. Last week I asked you all who was your favorite classic Star Wars character and this week I’m excited to see which Marvel villain is the one you happen to enjoy the most. Here are all of the villains.

Ronan the Accuser

mv5bmjexnzkxmjmzmv5bml5banbnxkftztgwodkxotmymje-_v1_-1.jpg

Ronan was a slightly corny villain but that’s what made him so perfect for Guardians of the Galaxy. He was still a worthy adversary though as he nearly destroyed Xandar and was able to wield the might of the Power Stone. Thankfully the Guardians were more powerful than him though. 🙂

General “Thunderbolt” Ross

MV5BNDAyNjY5NzY3Nl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMzY3NTAyNw@@._V1_SX1777_CR0,0,1777,753_AL_.jpg

The anti-Hulk, that could’ve made for a very compelling and intimidating villain. While I don’t remember The Incredible Hulk very well I do remember this villain because he definitely was scary looking. Too bad the movie wasn’t better. *shrug*

Malekith

MV5BMTYyMDA0NjcxNl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwOTU5MDMxMDE@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,1503,1000_AL_.jpg

Malekith definitely wasn’t anywhere near the most compelling MCU villain but he did provide Thor and Loki plenty of anguish as he managed to kill off Thor’s mother.
