Top 5 Films Needed in the Marvel Universe

Here is our list of the top 5 movies both Marvel fans and the general movie public would go gaga over.

5.  HawkeyeHawkeyeEMH

Anyone else wonder where was Hawkeye in Captain America 2? It’s time for Hawkeye to stop receiving the short end of the stick and get his own feature film. In the Avengers, we saw Hawkeye (under the control of Loki) nearly take down the rest of the Avengers on his own. I would love to see Hawkeye actually leave the Avengers, feeling under looked because he has no super powers and play the role of a somewhat dark anti hero.

         4. Nick Fury?Marvel's The Avengers?..Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) is the director of the international peacekeeping organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D in ?Marvel?s The Avengers,? opening in theaters on May 4, 2012.  The Joss Whedon?directed action-adventure is presented by Marvel Studios in association with Paramount Pictures and also stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner...Ph: Zade Rosenthal  ..© 2011 MVLFFLLC.

Either they need to make Snakes on a Plane 2 or they need to give Samuel L Jackson his own feature film as Nick Fury…..please God let it be the latter. Captain America 2 has sent shockwaves throughout the Marvel Universe; S. H.I.E.L.D. is no more, the world think Fury is dead, and Hydra has come out of hiding. Nick Fury helped end Hydra in WWII and now it’s up to him to end them once and for all. Throw in Black Widow and Maria Hill and you can almost have a Charlies Angels vibe to the flick.


3. Deadpool

What’s not to love about an immortal smart-mouth badass with a soft side for chimichangas? Fans have bee dying for a Deadpool movie since Ryan Reynolds played him in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Reynolds, who is now known for butchering two beloved comic book heroes ( for reals though, stay away from comic book movies and film the Proposal 2)left fans asking WTF where they thinking. While any Deadpool film would need to be rated R so it’s highly unlikely to be made, it sure would be fun to watch.

      2. Gambit gambit

The Cajun sensation also appeared in X-Men Origins : Wolverine, leaving fans wanting more (man, that film really sucked). Anyone who grew up watching the X-Men animated series fell in love with Gambit, yet he has not played a major role in any films yet. Gambit has an interesting back story of an orphan theft who becomes exiled from his gang because of his mutant powers. I would love to see an origins film, that leads to the famous mutant slaughtering of the underground mutants, the Murlocks. The only trouble fr this film would be finding a lead actor charming enough to fill the role of Gambit.   Update:  Channing Tatum will play Gambit in the next Xmen movie.

1.  Civil War  civill war

Captain America vs. Iron Man….is there a better way to end the Avengers when everyone’s contracts are up? Civil War is based on the government wanting to register anyone with super powers and is lead by Iron Man. Captain America leads an anti registration group and the result ends with an epic battle where fan favorites face each other in a battle to end all battles. The best part is, this leads to a new Avengers forming, and could easily end the old wave of Marvel film and help bring in a new wave of films like Ms. Marvel, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage.

What do you think of our list?  Which movies would you love to be made from the Marvel universe?  Leave a comment.


  1. Deadpool supposedly is in the works. Civil War would be too problematic. It requires building up an entire world full of large numbers of superheroes. It’s just not going to happen. Hawkeye would be OK, but meh. Nick Fury should definitely happen. Gambit is just . . . bleh.

    The two movies Marvel should make, sooner rather than later, are Captain Marvel and Black Panther. Captain Marvel’s a female character who can hold her own against even the strongest male heroes, something that MCU still needs. Black Panther’s a major character of colour. Marvel has yet to do solo films for a female or a person of colour. Those need to happen, soon. Before Avengers 3 comes out, Marvel absolutely has to do a female solo, and a person of colour solo.

    Others I’d like to see: Monica Rambeau, Power Pack, Spider-Woman would be cool, maybe a White Tiger movie, and maybe a variation on Young Avengers, with a team of young heroes inspired by the Avengers without being connected to them.

    And, of course, the fabulous Frog-Man.

    1. I hear Black Panther might be part of wave 3, so that would be awesome. Funny enough, Captain Marvel was my 6th pick for the same reasons. Thanks for reading my blog 🙂

  2. So true! I love Marvel and I feel that the current crop of movies choose a “safe” route of big blockbusters with ecological messages rather than going for the stories the fans want. Thanks for following my blog and I am now following yours.

  3. I would see any of these movies! I would also love to see new X-Men movies that actually make sense! No more contradicting films!

  4. I don’t know if the world needs a Hawkeye movie, I think that they got with Bourne Legacy. Nick Fury as fun as he is, wouldn’t be a great titular character for a 2 hour Marvel Movie. Civil War would involve too many licensing issue with character rights. Deadpool would be spot on, and it is in the works but is so far drowned in red tape its not even funny.
