If you had to choose which villain you'd want to see get their own more fleshed out origin, which would it be? And why?

Typing all of these names out, I'm expecting a bunch of these guys to wind up with 0% lol.

Hela. When she was still Odin's favorite and helped him to conquer Nine Realms.

I’d love to see Hela’s backstory.

Loki growing up would have been cool too.

She and killmonger. Best MCU villains with Loki of course

A Hela movie is pointless when we pretty much know and saw what happened during Ragnarok. We saw those images and we've seen what it looks like when Odin and his army fights other armies. Don't need to see that for 2 hours.

OT: None of these villains need origin movies or anything like that. Villains without heroes in a movie will always suck. But if I had to pick out of these villains it'd be Thanos just because he's head and shoulders above every villain in the MCU.

@darthvaderrocks: IDK. There's a couple that I would watch.

Hela, just to get more Odin and Heimdall and Asgard.

Loki for the same reasons.

Killmonger to see him rack up confirmed kills like a video game and sow the seeds of his revenge.

Bucky to see him pull off Cold War assassinations.

Thanos to see him rise to power and raise Gamora and Nebula and form the Black Order.

@kingofwakanda: "Hela, just to get more Odin and Heimdall and Asgard."

I doubt Heimdall would have been alive during those days. Surely he would have mentioned to Thor who she was. And tbh the only interesting thing about Hela is Cate Blanchett since she's one of the best in the business.

"Loki for the same reasons."

I think a Loki movie is dumb. It essentially would just be Loki and Thor and we've already seen that enough times. However, a Loki tv series after Thor 1 where he meets Thanos and stuff that would be interesting. I would like to see how Loki became Thanos b!tch.

"Killmonger to see him rack up confirmed kills like a video game and sow the seeds of his revenge."

Eh. Would just be a war film. Already seen those lol.

"Bucky to see him pull off Cold War assassinations."

I think we've had enough of Bucky and his winter Solider days. Wouldn't see anything new or interesting I'm afraid.

"Thanos to see him rise to power and raise Gamora and Nebula and form the Black Order."

A Thanos film sounds nice as a concept but actually thinking about how it would go down ruins it. He'd have no heroes to oppose him and we'd essentially just be seeing murderers commit murders. We've already got enough of Thanos and his backstory as far as I'm concerned. Thanos in other films like Eternals and other movies is far more intriguing.

@darthvaderrocks: I see more story potential than that if they apply some creativity, but fair enough. You don't have to watch these made up prequels lol.

Killmonger or thanos. Voted Killmonger because I feel we know more about what thanos was doing before infinity war.

A winter soldier movie would be awesome and full of action scenes. But a Thanos movie would be interesting to see and it would be a way to know which events made thanos did what he did in infinity war

Thanos's rise to power would be cool to see. He wasn't always the strongest and I'd love to see him take on other heavy hitters from all over the universe. Watching him have debates with others on his homeworld on how to fix overpopulation would be interesting.Thanos is a character that should be recurring like Loki and fleshed out as much as possible since he stands out from the rest of the MCU characters.

@amendment50: Darren Cross goes to business school and gets mentored by Hank Pym, slowly losing his hair all the while. Riveting stuff.

Hela, she had so much potential and her depth was hinted in some scenes, but it was all wasted in the long run.

Ragnarok should've been a 2-part movie, everything felt so rush because of the sheer quantity of arcs explored. The least would be to give Hela her origins story.

Hela because I like Thanos' history being questionable (his re-tellings are shaped by his bias)

Hela or thanos. Both of them need a movie to clarify some things. I want to see thanos’s people reject him. And I want to see Odin fight hela.

Bucky.

Hela's transition from prodigal daughter to being banished by Odin

Bucky's flick could be cool, but I find it hard to fill 90 minutes with his story when it will mostly be "Go kill that guy", "Good, now that one", maybe the movie could show how they perfected the treatment he received, and worked bonkly at first, leaving him some leeway to divert from his Winter Soldier persona.

Thanos, showing how he came to his conclusion of having to erase 50% of the universe's population, what things he tried , and most importantly how he finds out about the infinity stones.

Thanos, easily. I would legit like to see a movie about Thanos's rise to power. Also be a good excuse to bring back the Black Order without actually resurrecting them, cause I'd like to see more of them (especially Maw) as well, but think they should stay dead for what it's worth.
