The MCU has hit after hit, but their villains have been dud after dud. Somehow though, they recently got better and better. What're they doing now that's different from before?

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is an American media franchise and shared universe that is centered on a series of superhero films, independently produced by Marvel Studios and based on characters that appear in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The franchise has expanded to include comic books, short films, television series, and digital series. The shared universe, much like the original Marvel Universe in comic books, was established by crossing over common plot elements, settings, cast, and characters. Phil Coulson, portrayed by Clark Gregg, is an original character to the MCU and the only character to appear across all its different media.

For me personally I get why fans hate hearing why the MCU movies are overhyped but in all honesty.... They are. Don’t get me wrong they are fun movies but most of them are one and done movies for me. I like them a lot but I am feeling exhausted with the MCU and wish they would slow down as continuing to follow the MCU just feels like such a commitment now as they are planning on releasing 4 movies a year that are all connected. I have loved the guardians movies, avengers infinite war, cap America winter soldier and Spider-Man homecoming but outside of those 5 movies the movies just don’t feel that different in structure or tone for me. I will say though they have made some amazing villains lately and if they continue down this path marvel may win me completely over.

I think this is probably an unpopular opinion, but my favourite MCU villain was actually Ultron. For four reasons:
1) He's quotable
2) Fucking James Spader man
3) Lifting up a city is like penultimate badassery
4) A seriously, James fucking Spader.

I also quite liked Ronan as a villain, for a few reasons.
He was an unstoppable force, and that was exactly the type villain that the first guardians needed. They had to build a team of 5 in one movie, and that doesn't leave much time for developing a backstory. What character he did have made sense. He'd lived with a war for his entire life (I actually don't know), and suddenly he's forced into peace. You can take the soldier out of the fight but not the fight outta the soldier.

And two other things:
It gave us the first decent representation of just how strong an infinity stone was.
And at that point Ronan was probably the strongest MCU villain yet even without the power stone, and he was scared shitless of Thanos. Which was excellent set up for the later films.

If you disagree, that's alright. I tend to have really shitty taste.
Among my favourite movies are such greats as:
The Amazing Spiderman 2
Pirates of the Caribbean; At World's End
The Hobbit; Battle of The Five Armies
Star wars: Revenge of The Sith

And many other greats.
My favourite band in also Nickelback. (Not bullshitting.)
the problem is the best bad guys are the ones you could see as great good guys or at least the ones you like but Hollywood hates this idea, bad guys have to be evil as for as they are concerned.

star trek DS9 got this right with gul dukat (granted Marc Alaimo did a blood brilliant job) and luckly we also got tom hiddleston's Loki befor him the last ""bad guy"" i liked was probaly michelle pfeiffer as catwoman.
Killmonger one of the worst characters I've seen, movie was shitty too
I'm sorry... Killmonger and Vulture? Good villains? Nah. I was disappointed at Spiderman Homecoming villain and Black Panther was just utter shit.

1:14 Your opinion doug.. i dont condider good more than does ..in fact i really dont care for most marvel film aside the the two sequels to capitan america . Gotg2 and avenger 1 and infinity war.. everything else is either popcorn films , bad film
Lucas Hammar
Why is Kaecilius always considered as a generic villain? I mean sure he didn't chew every scene he was in, but he had a fair amount of backstory, an understandable goal, and Mads Mikkelsen was such a great actor.
paco ramon
I miss the guys in suits.
ArtiK XП
Very CooL...!
Brave Joxer
That's right! We " ate too much " and we were overfed.
