10 Comic Book Supervillains Who ACTUALLY Deserve A Solo Movie

Forget about Morbius - these are the villains who deserve the spotlight.

When it comes to the comic book movie genre, the majority of films tend to focus on the heroes of each respective universe and while, for the most part, these stories are great, as a result the more villainous characters are often relegated to being the antagonist of a single tale, rather than the championing their own adventures.

However, with the likes of 2016's Suicide Squad, Venom and the upcoming Joaquin Phoenix Joker film, this trend is clearly on the way out, but there are plenty more charismatic criminals, some of which who have already been well established in the movies, whose individual journies, if just given the chance, would fit perfectly into the on-screen universe of either DC or Marvel.

And, as proven by the aforementioned Suicide Squad, if watching your protagonist attempt to destroy the universe isn't appealing, then you can always frame the villains as unwilling heroes, rather than their usual mass-murdering lunatic selves, as many of the comics have also done.

Anyhow, here are our top picks for the scoundrels best suited to having their stories adapted to the big screen.
