Marvel Cinematic Universe: 10 New Villains To Watch Out For In 2018

1. Corvus Glaive

Marvel Comics

Appearing In: Avengers: Infinity War

And finally we reach the fourth member of the Black Order we'll be meeting this summer: Corvus Glaive. In the comics, he's known for wielding a glaive that keeps him invulnerable - a weapon seen in the trailer prying the Mind Stone from a beaten Vision's forehead - and has the same level of speed and raw power that his wife, Proxima Midnight, has.

Of all the members of the Black Order, he's respected enough by Thanos to have been his second-in-command in the comics, an undeniably evil alien with no sympathy for those in his way. That will most certainly be how his character is interpreted on the big screen, too, and from the looks of it, it seems his attack on Vision may lead to an initial failure, with Captain America and his team swooping in to save Vision and hide him in Wakanda, leading to the assault we've seen in the trailers.

Again, it's all speculation based on the pieces we've been given, but considering his history and personality in the comics, whatever happens, Corvus Glaive is the Black Order member to be worried about the most, and his introduction into the MCU - just like the other villains on this list - is one of the many reasons to get excited about the franchise's big year ahead of us.

Which new MCU villain are you most excited for? Let us know down in the comments.
