With [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](movie:293035) on the horizon and still a short list of heroes in their roster Disney and Marvel, in my opinion, won't be able to keep the hype up unless they start adding new heroes. So below is my list of the top 10 characters who deserve a stand alone movie. Some of them have already had a movie but not in recent years or are in desperate need of a reboot so keep an open mind and please bear in mind that I don't know a ton about Marvel heroes who haven't been in a movie lately. I'm fairly new to the Comic Book world.

With that disclaimer out of the way lets take a look at our top 10!

10. The Incredible Hulk

Yes, the Hulk already has a couple movies but we haven't seen him in a solo film since before the Avengers! That is WAY too long to have to wait to see the big green man on the big screen! Lots of rumors abound on a phase 3 sighting for the Hulk and whether the plot would be World War Hulk or Planet Hulk. I for one hope its World War Hulk so we can see more of Bruce Banner, since in the Planet Hulk Banner wouldn't be a huge part of the story.

9. Daredevil

After the awful solo film he was in last time [Daredevil](movie:47230) has been tossed aside but lets not forget that the blind hero is one of the best heroes around! Not to mention with a great story that should be brought to the screen and even have him put in future Avenger films!

8. Echo

This Anti-hero used to be a killer for the Kingpin so whether it is Disney or Son property could be up for grabs. However she is also a one time lover of Daredevil and the first person to take the guise of Ronin. Not to mention being one of the few deaf super heroes! There is a wealth of stories to be made here and I for one would love to see her make a debut!

7. She-Hulk

I think alot of people have her on their list. Bruce Banner's cousin becomes ill and in order to save her he gives her some of his tainted blood transforming her into the She-Hulk! She is a huge member of the Avengers and would be perfect for an Avengers 3 movie. Anyone else with me?

6. Punisher

Yes the Punisher already had a movie but lets admit it was probably awful (I missed it). [The Punisher](movie:1007544) would be perfect for a reboot and maybe even a tie in to the rest of the marvel universe.

5. Nico Minoru

With a possible Doctor Strange movie on the horizon magic could become a part of the Marvel Universe. While I admit I don't know a ton about this hero from reading up on her she seemed to be perfect for Marvel and could bring a movie tie in to The Runaways for future movies.

4. Mockingbird

Shield Agent, Ex-wife to Nick fury, and helped found the second team of the Avengers! She definitely deserves a mention on this list as she could be tied in to other movies with Fury in it!

3. Heather Mcneil Hudson

Takes over the leadership of Alpha Flight after her husband dies and when he is revived becomes the Vindicator. She would be good for a movie as well.

2. Captain Marvel

Lets face it. What would a Marvel movie franchise be without Captain Marvel? He would be perfect for his own movie!

1. Ms Marvel

Nothing too shocking about this one. There have been clamorings for a Ms. Marvel Movie for awhile now and I think she would be perfect for her own solo movie as well as an addition to the Avengers!


Notice anything about my list? Most of them are women! Which brings me to another point. The Avengers have way too much Testosterone in their ranks. We need more strong female characters. Even us men are getting tired of all the male heroes. A strong female would really be good for the series as a whole.

Did I miss any? What would your top 10 list be an why? Tell me below in the comments!
