A decade has passed since Iron Man graced our screens as the debut entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and since that breakthrough we’ve seen dozens of villains crushed by Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
The arrival of Avengers: Infinity War heralded the coming of Thanos, the harbinger of death on a cosmic level and undoubtedly the biggest evil Steve Rogers and his motley crew have faced on screen thus far.
But not every Marvel film can feature a Thanos. Not every villain can be so intimidating and bring that same sense that half the galaxy is soon to meet its doom, because if every villain was that terrifying, nobody would be.
Marvel Studios have commanded previous successes despite casting main villains who, while powerful in some cases, aren't exactly obvious picks, including the Vulture, Whiplash, Malekith and Aldrich Killian, to name a few. And while that could work again, there's no reason why they couldn't use a mix of villains who are household names and some slightly more surprising choices.
There are certainly more than enough options in the Marvel vault to offer some compelling new additions to the MCU's Rogues' Gallery, that's for certain.
