With the recent release of Marvel movies such as Black Panther, Deadpool 2 and The Avengers: Infinity War, it’s fair to say that we’re all on a major Marvel hype. You know, unless you’re currently scattered around the universe in tiny pieces of dust (Shhhh, #ThanosDemandsYourSilence). Now that Marvel has made its way into the world of Hollywood, people around the globe have been able to become utterly obsessed with characters such as Iron Man, Spiderman, Captain America, Doctor Strange, Black Widow, Thor and more. But what about those characters who haven’t had their big Hollywood break yet? These are the Marvel comics that people can’t wait to see movies made out of…
If you’re a fan of Guardians of the Galaxy (duh, of course you are!), you’ll already be familiar with the awesome Nova Corps that made their debut appearance in the first movie. However, we’re still waiting for the day that Nova himself could make his way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After all, his comics are arguably much more popular than those of the Guardians, so why have they been given the airtime? We need a bit more Nova in our lives, to be honest.
We’re not gonna make a (Bruce) Banner or anything, but She-Hulk deserves her own movie right now, and we’re going to keep stating our opinion until it finally happens. Over the years, Marvel have attempted to give the Hulk his very own franchise, but it’s never really worked out. Lou Ferrigno tried and failed, movies came and went, and the whole concept never really came off the ground until Mark Ruffalo came into the picture. So, let’s give the lady a chance?
If you’re scratching your head and wondering who the heck Ka-Zar is, we don’t blame you. This dude had his moment of fame in the 1990s when his comics were released. We were introduced to this wild beast, as well as his partner, Sheena, and their tiger, Zabu. Since their comics came into the world, their story has gone under the radar – but that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten about them. In fact, with Marvel choosing some of the lesser-known characters to turn into Hollywood stars, this seems like the perfect chance to add another name into the mix.
Die-hard fans of Marvel will know that Namor is one of the oldest characters within the brand. In fact, he appeared in the first ever Marvel comic! Over the years, Namor has been a part of major Marvel gangs such as Fantastic Four, X-Men and more, and he’s interacted with some of the biggest names in the business. Because of this, fans can’t wait for the day that Namor finally gets his own movie. Although one was in the works in 2006, the movie soon fizzled out before it could be produced.
Moon Knight is the kind of Marvel character that we always hear about, but we soon learn that he never gets the leading part. Poor Moon Knight. With his giant cloak, his epic superpowers and his ability to skulk through the night, this guy was supposed to have about ten of his own movies by now. However, none of these movies have ever come to fruition, and we’re still waiting for that day to come.
If you’re just as Marvel mad as we are, you’re probably sitting around and twiddling your thumbs wondering when these characters will be getting their own movies. Well, we’re still waiting too!
