With an onslaught of MCU series and movies hitting our screens over the next few years, from The Falcon and The Winter Soldier mini-series and the sure-to-be-epic Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness, it seems as though Marvel and Disney have an infinite supply of money, ideas, and characters to bring to life.
And whilst it's great to see old faithfuls like Loki, Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch returning to the screen, and it's even more exciting to watch new characters such as She-Hulk and Captain Britain come to life, there are still a handful of old school MCU veterans who need a chance to strut their stuff solo.
From the long-standing supporting characters who need a chance to finally take the spotlight, heroes who have missed the boat because of ownership rules, or the massively popular who have been somewhat overlooked in recent years, the following characters are all begging for a chance to go solo and give audiences a chance to dig deeper into their stories.
The MCU is a place of character growth, after all, and following the poignant culmination of arcs belonging to Tony Stark, Steve Rogers and Natasha Romanov (all R.I.P), now may be the perfect time for the overshadowed sidekicks and underused allies to take control of the franchise.
Here are eight MCU characters most deserving of their own movie. Major spoilers for the MCU follow.
