Over a decade after her first appearance in the MCU, Natasha Romanoff, the Black Widow, is finally getting her solo origin movie, Black Widow. Now, fans are contemplating whether different characters in the establishment may soon get a similar treatment because there are numerous characters who need an introduction like Black Widow. Origin of heroes like Vision was practically seen as the franchise advanced, but some heroes did not get a proper origin story.
Enthusiasts of the Marvel Cinematic Universe couldn’t imagine anything better than to see origin films for some of these characters, following the footsteps of Black Widow. Here we have compiled 10 Marvel characters who deserve an origin movie.
In The Avengers (2012), we were first introduced to Black Widow, but another character who was introduced in the background was Hawkeye. Black Widow was again seen playing a key role in Iron Man 2, but Hawkeye played a minor role in Thor.
We will get to see this character in detail in the upcoming show Hawkeye, but that story will see him passing the torch onto Kate Bishop. Hawkeye fans would love to see the origin of the character before he permanently leaves MCU.
Fans got to see a major part of Gamora’s life but fans don’t know much about Nebula, her sister. She was raised alongside Gamora but was not treated as nicely as Gamora. Thanos often pit the sisters against one another, causing them to be antagonistic rivals.
Nebula was initially sent by Thanos, but she eventually joins her sister and becomes a part of Guardians of the Galaxy, as well as an Avenger. Fans would love to see the origin of this character.
8) Rocket Raccoon
Rocket is a raccoon from Halfworld, where animals are genetically engineered to have humanoid intelligence and personality, in order to give them enough awareness to fight back against being enslaved. He is an interesting character and fans would love to see an origin story about him and how he teamed up with Groot.
7) Black Panther
Tragically, actor Chadwick Boseman, who portrayed T’Challa, passed away in August of 2020 and fans know that T’Challa’s story will not be continuing as Kevin Feige announced that T’Challa would not be recast nor did anybody want him to be.
Fans are now wondering if they will get to see the origin of Black Panther. A story about T’Challa in the past, portrayed by a younger actor while he was a very young man.
In Avengers: Infinity War, it was revealed that Thor is over a thousand years old (roughly 1,500 years old), most of which is unexplored. The character has so much potential material and many stories that would contribute to an amazing Thor origin movie. Creators should take another shot at giving Thor and Loki another chance at an origin movie.
Korg was introduced in Thor: Ragnarok and immediately made an impression on people from that moment on. Fans loved this character as he was not only hilarious, but he was also heartfelt. Thor met him on Sakaar. He told him about the revolution he tried to spark (due to which he ended up on Sakaar) but it failed because he didn’t print enough pamphlets. Nobody showed up except for his mother and her boyfriend. He also states that he hates his mother’s boyfriend.
He is an interesting, hilarious character and fans would love to know about his origin.
4) Hank Pym
When Ant-Man was introduced, fans were surprised to see that Ant-Man wasn’t Hank Pym but he was Scott Lang. Fans loved Scott Lang’s Ant-Man and some fans wouldn’t want to see him getting replaced now. Fans would love to see a movie focused on the original Ant-Man and how he became the heroic character.
3) Nick Fury
Nick Fury, director of S.H.I.E.L.D., is different from other superheroes, mainly because he is one of the human characters who are as good as heroes with extraordinary powers. He was the one who recruited Tony Stark to the Avengers Initiative.
His life before MCU is unknown. Creators dipped back into his story by involving him in Captain Marvel, but they never explained how Nick Fury became the super-powerful figure he is by the beginning of the MCU. A movie focusing specifically on Nick Fury’s origin will be appreciated by the fans.
Multiple characters were introduced in Thor: Ragnarok, Valkyrie was one of them. She deserves her own movie than any other character in this movie. We will get to see her character in upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder as the King of New Asgard, but fans would love to see how she grew up to be a strong warrior and how she ended up in Sakaar.
Thanos, like other celestial characters, is older than many human characters in the MCU. Most of his life is unexplored. He first appeared in the post-credits scene for The Avengers, but we don’t know how he became the Thanos that wiped half of the universe.
We have seen parts of his life, but a movie focusing on origin of Thanos particularly would be an interesting story to watch.
