The Marvel Cinematic Universe has gone on to become one of the most popular film franchises of all time. This is less a glowing assessment and more an objective statistic.

During this time, we have seen on screen adaptations of numerous iconic characters from the Marvel folklore, many of whom are celebrated today as some of the best movie portrayals ever. Robert Downey Jr.’s unforgettable Iron Man run, Chris Evan’s impossible-to-not-love take on Captain America, Chris Hemsworth’s big beefy abs injecting a new spark to Thor - the list goes on.

So who can be the MCU’s next big villains following Josh Brolin’s brilliant run as Thanos? The common answers would usually feature names such as Galactus, Doctor Doom, and other known bad guys. But the Marvel lore is so vast and rich, there is quite literally a multiverse full of candidates who could be a smash-hit with audiences...
