The famous villains from superhero films we equally love

They have their edge over the superhero, but nothing beast them

There is hardly anyone who wouldn’t have a favourite superhero from the plethora of films and comic narrations we got. But every superhero film has an antagonist or the villain we say. Since the hero is a superhero, the villain is no more minor. These are called super villains who come with even greater powers than the superhero. Take Thanos, for instance, of the Joker; both are unimaginably strong. However, while their human powers are strong, their supernatural powers are beyond. So one can go through an endless list of superheroes they admire, but one rarely talks about the supervillains opposite these superheroes. So here is a list of such famous supervillains we need to see.


This antagonist from the Batman movie has been played by various actors, including Cesar Romero, Jack Nicolson, and Heath Ledger. Romero was the big screen’s first Joker in 1996’s Batman: The Move and is known for giving the character its psychotic laugh and, of course, the sense of humor. And Jack Nicholson’s portrayal of Joker in the 1989 Batman is well nuanced. Whereas Heath Ledger’s play of Batman in 2008, The Dark Knight was the greatest until Joaquin Phoenix’s upcoming as Joker in the 2019 film Joker. Both Ledger and Phoenix stand their equal, fair share of skills and talent.


Played the handsome Tom Hiddleston, Loki’s entry into the zone of super villains was unexpected and his fame rising to the sky was unexpected. Loki started with being the one after Thor’s Mjollnir – the hammer and wanting to be the king of Asgard; he revokes havoc over the world. Hiddleston, in his character as Loki, does full justice to his negative character. The English actor has even carried forward his character of Loki to television series narrating Loki’s story after Thanos fiasco. God of Lies, Loki is powerful for he can read people’s minds; he is charismatic and witty.


The ever ahead of everyone else, Magneto has a different charm altogether for a villain. Played by Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender in The X-Men Franchise, the two bring the qualities and persona of Magneto alive. Erik Magnus Lehnsherr, aka Magneto, is famous for playing a negative character; he is always right about things. While McKellen is surreal in his character, Fassbender is no less.

A few others are Doctor Octopus played Alfred Molina in Spider-Man 2, The Winter Soldier, played by Sebastian Stan in Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Captain America: Civil War.
