Marvel Supervillains That Are More Powerful Than Thanos

Marvel Supervillains That Are More Powerful Than Thanos: Hey there, Marvel fans eagerly anticipating the next Avengers movie aren’t you well while the plot with Thanos is incredibly epic it’s only natural to dwell on what’s coming next to the MCU what are we gonna see after the end credits another threat and another villain even more terrible than the mad Titan perhaps I suggest we look at what the Marvel Universe has to offer in this regard.

I bet you won’t be disappointed so who do we start with I think with one of the most controversial Marvel characters Galactus you see while Thanos is driven by his own moral albeit twisted code Galactus will have none of this nonsense he was a mortal man once but he transformed into an almost all-powerful entity in a cataclysm of a universal scale Galactus is dubbed a world devourer for her good reason he devours entire planets to feed himself.

If you’re a fan of the MCU you must have seen his presence in another movie Fantastic Four rise of the Silver Surfer the Silver Surfer is in fact his Herald and errand boy of sorts. He seeks out worlds for Galactus to consume and prepares their inhabitants for Destruction.

I know what you might ask next wait if Galactus made an appearance in another franchise doesn’t it mean he shouldn’t be present in an Avengers movie well since the Fantastic Four franchise has been relaunched you can’t help but think that Marvel would at least consider making Galactus the next uber villain in the Avengers universe to my mind he makes perfect sense however so does the next guy on my level his name’s Muffy stout.

If you’re not an avid fan of comics you might have missed this character altogether but hey the MCU introduces new villains all the time so why not him but let’s start with the basics Mephisto is a seemingly immortal demonic being that does all kinds of evil stuff.

He’s based on the notorious mephistopheles from Goths Faust and bears a great resemblance to that demon if you remember Ghost Rider with Nicolas Cage the one who turned Johnny Blaze into a biker with a flaming skull was none other than buffy Stowe however that’s only a tiny particle of his real powers and those are immense he possesses all kinds of magical skills shape shifts and can even alter time itself as a demon he acquires even greater power when he’s in his own realm in the comics he’s even battled it out on par with Galactus could he be the next Avengers ultimate foe as likely as anyone.

If you ask me but let’s not forget about the villains that have already made their appearance in the MCU how about Dormammu for example although Doctor Strange stalemated him in his very own movie with the help of only a single infinity gem Dormammu is still a force to be reckoned with as you may remember Doctor Strange didn’t defeat the mighty being he only made him leave Earth alone using the power of the time gem Dormammu is the ruler of the Dark Dimension a realm of his own his ambitions have always lain in the human world however so he makes a great supervillain to combat.

The Avengers to top it off in the comic universe he teamed up with Loki another recurrent baddie to confuse yesu the Avengers so if he becomes the one to confront the team of superheroes after Thanos I wouldn’t be surprised at all will you give me a thumbs up if you agree still speaking about forces greater than Thanos himself we should remember his one real love yes no not the abstract death that eventually comes after all things mortal but death incarnate you see in the Marvel multiverse such notions as love hate eternity and well death are all personified and Thanos kind of worships his ladylove.

Yes, it’s a she it’s not really clear from the movie but in the comic series the mad Titan does what he does for the sake of death so should we be surprised. If there happens to be a plot twist that includes this humanized force of nature who knows maybe when the Avengers finally deal with Thanos his mistress will decide to avenge him pun intended sorry this could raise the stakes enough for the next grand battle of the universe but what if we got to an even higher level of power something so incredibly mighty you can’t even fathom its hugeness that would be awesome in a sense that even the Avengers and guardians of the galaxy combined would probably not be able to fight such a foe without some extra help and that flow is a praxis to get my meaning consider this he’s basically the embodiment of destruction or if you prefer destruction itself remember how I told you that eternity is also a human-like being well.

Abraxas has grown inside him he’s the natural counterpart of eternity which is the creator of worlds and he seeks to escape his parent and guardian once upon a time. He actually managed to do so why do I say he’s on a whole new level of power at the very least because he defeated Galactus like it was nothing another universe is Galactus but Galactus all the same and that’s something to ponder on if such a guy decides to attack our poor earth or our poor universe for that matter not even the Avengers will have a chance against him a terrifying prospect indeed there’s one more supervillain that holds a grudge against earth Annihilus an insectoid overlord of a realm called the negative zone.

A nihilist was originally angered by the Fantastic Four in the comics series after they escaped his wrath he seeks nothing else but to destroy earth. Although he can’t go out of the negative zone of his own will eventually though he finds a way out and gathers an enormous fleet of battleships to conquer the whole universe see the rise of ambition you bet do you think a giant armada of insectoid aliens is just what the next Avengers movie needs share your opinion in the comments now to the tastiest part of the show all the guys.

I told you about earlier are cool and all but they have two drawbacks that make them less likely candidates for super villains in the upcoming Avengers movies. First they have rather dubious connections with the current MCU state. Second they are no match for the ones I’m going to tell you about in a moment.

So who are these powerful enemies of the universe for one there are Celestials these are cosmic entities whose origins are not exactly known in the Marvel Cinematic Universe we’ve seen one of them in guardians of the galaxy vol 2. Remember ego the Living Planet that’s him Celestials are the original Masters of the infinity gems so it only makes sense that one or two of them would return to take the gauntlet from Thanos.

If they managed to do so that would be one huge twist you could only wonder what a creature far more powerful than Thanos without the gauntlet could do with one.

Still I somehow doubt that the infinity gems assembled will take a large part in the upcoming movies. That brings us to the last but not in anyway least character to assume. The role of uber villain lord chaos.

If this name doesn’t ring a bell. I don’t blame you as it hasn’t yet appeared in any of the MCU movies but I strongly believe that it should you see when Thanos snapped his fingers and destroyed half the universe. He basically crippled the natural course of events and that couldn’t have gone unnoticed by the big guys in the Marvel mythos.

Those big guys are two brothers Lord chaos and master order. Each representing the quality their name suggests. When the scale is tipped by Thanos his actions Lord chaos just might become interested in taking over the universe for himself.

And despite being a cosmic entity with seemingly infinite powers he still has a brother who will always oppose him, doesn’t that make for a cool collaboration if the Avengers team up with master order to stop the evil force of Lord chaos sounds like an epic battle to me.

Olivia Munn’s Dating History: Actors, Athletes and More

Published

Romance on the mind? Olivia Munn has been linked to some of Hollywood’s hottest men throughout her career, including actors, athletes and businessmen.

The Oklahoma native was a G4 television host before rising to fame as an actress in X-Men: Apocalypse and The Predator. Early on in her acting career, Munn was linked to fellow actors Bryan Greenberg and Chris Pine.

Although she keeps her relationships fairly private, the Office Christmas Party actress, who was also a Daily Show correspondent in the past, has shut down false dating reports more than once. In 2018 alone she confirmed that she was not romantically involved with Chris Pratt or Justin Theroux, despite rumors to the contrary.

“Sooo… I would never respond to random tabloid stories, but since we know each other I wanted to reach out to you personally to tell you the story about me and Chris dating has 0% truth,” Munn texted Pratt’s ex-wife Anna Faris in January 2018, which she shared via her Instagram Story. “I’m sure you already know it’s not true, or maybe didn’t care either way, but I just wanted to reach out personally to tell you it’s not true. Anyway, I hope you had an amazing holiday and an even better 2018.”

The Newsroom alum also joked that “Chris and I would have a horrible celebrity name: Crolivia, Prunn, Chrisivia, Olipratt,” while addressing the false narrative on social media at the time.

Munn revealed she isn’t the type of woman who hooks up with her pals’ exes, when debunking the story of her dating Jennifer Aniston’s ex-husband Theroux in March 2018. “Dear tabloids, please stop matching me with my friends’ exes,” she wrote in an Instagram Story at the time. “No disrespect to people who do date their friends’ exes, that’s just not my style. Kthxbye!”

In between rumors of her high-profile romances, the actress has had a few serious relationships, including her time with quarterback Aaron Rodgers. However, Munn hasn’t ever really thought about tying the knot with anyone.

“I never have ever been that girl [who dreamed about her wedding]. And I’ll hear about friends who have, and I’ve just never been the person that’s, like, ‘Oh, I can’t wait to get married. This is what it’s going to be like, what my ring would be.’ I don’t really have any of those,” the actress, revealed in an April 2020 episode of “The Big Ticket With Marc Malkin” podcast.

She added: “The idea of getting married has always made me a little … It gives me … I don’t know what that word is for … I’m like, ‘It’s hot in here, right?’ It’s like, ‘Really?’ … Yeah, I just feel like to pick one person forever.”

9 new trailers to watch this week

Published

By

Back when the pandemic was just getting started in the US, I spent a couple nights watching a pair of Taika Waititi films I hadn’t seen: Hunt for the Wilderpeople and What We Do in the Shadows. They were the perfect kind of light, no-stress movies for the moment.

That’s really the kind of experience that Waititi excels at making. His movies are filled with silly, try-hard characters you can’t help but care for, but he never really puts them in harm’s way. They’re constantly blustering their way through a ludicrous scenario of their own making, and it’s usually quite clear how they can find their way out. That makes the stakes low but leaves plenty of room for the characters’ big personalities to shine through.

Check out nine trailers from this week (and last week because I was off!) below.

Kajillionaire

Almost a decade after her last film, Miranda July is back with a wild twist on a heist movie — a film about a bizarre family of con artists and the daughter (played by Evan Rachel Wood) who’s suddenly started to realize that she wants more from her parents. It comes out (in theaters, supposedly) on September 18th.

Judas and the Black Messiah

Daniel Kaluuya and LaKeith Stanfield star in this film about Fred Hampton, the leader of the Black Panther Party in Illinois who was killed by police in 1969. This trailer makes the film seem like it’ll have the energy of an action thriller. It comes out sometime next year.

I’m Thinking of Ending Things

Charlie Kaufman’s next movie is a time-twisting thriller about a woman who goes to visit her boyfriend’s parents during a snowstorm and seems to end up slipping through the past of those around her. The film is an adaptation of a novel by Iain Reid, but it clearly echoes the kind of confusing explorations of memory that Kaufman (who wrote Eternal Sunshine) is often interested in diving into. The film comes out on September 4th.

Zola

I love this simple and serious first look at Zola, the movie based on the viral Twitter thread (yes, it’s based on a Twitter thread!) about two strippers on a road trip that went wildly awry. My colleague Adi Roberston called the film “gorgeous and engaging” when it debuted at Sundance. There’s no specific date for when it’ll come out.

Raised by Wolves

Ridley Scott is working on a sci-fi series for HBO Max, and it looks like a strange mashup of far-out tech and fantasy ideas. The show is about androids assigned to raise human children on a new planet, where things inevitably go awry. The show debuts on September 3rd.

Small Axe

Steve McQueen, director of 12 Years a Slave, is working on an anthology miniseries about stories from London’s West Indian community between the 1960s and 1980s. This is a look at just one of the five films, focused on a group of Black activists arrested for protesting police harassment in 1970. The series is supposed to come to Amazon and BBC One this fall.

Ratched

Netflix’s latest series from Ryan Murphy is a prequel of sorts to One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, focused on Nurse Ratched. Sarah Paulson stars as a quiet, seemingly ready-to-snap Nurse Ratched working in a technicolor hospital. It comes out on September 18th.

The Vow

HBO has a documentary series coming up about NXIVM, the supposed self-help group that’s been alleged to be an abusive cult and pyramid scheme. The series comes from the filmmakers behind The Square. It debuts on August 23rd

We Are Who We Are

Here’s the first real look at the new HBO series from Luca Guadagnino, the director of Call Me by Your Name. It’s about two American teenagers growing up in Italy, and it seems to involve plenty of sunny settings and sexual awkwardness, which is kind of all you’d want from a Guadagnino show. It debuts on September 14th.

In She Dies Tomorrow, figuring out how to spend your last day is really damn hard

Published

on

By

A woman jolts awake and gasps for air in a nondescript living room. She can’t explain why, but she’s certain of one thing: she only has one more day to live. So she tells her friend, Jane, and something horrifying happens: Jane also becomes certain the next day will be her last. This strange conviction, it turns out, is contagious. And it’ll infect many more before tomorrow actually comes.

Written and directed by Amy Seimetz, She Dies Tomorrow is a new film with a title and a premise that suggests something propulsive — a thriller, perhaps, or a nightmarish horror film. Instead, it is contemplative, a psychodrama that introduces a simple unsettling idea to each of its characters and lets us watch as they become unmoored. It doesn’t give definite answers to anything, but it is absolutely clear about one thing: everyone who says they are going to die tomorrow absolutely believes it.

She Dies Tomorrow is a house of mirrors, a film much more interested in the reflections it offers you than in conjuring anything overly specific for you to ruminate. Its characters all process the revelation at the heart of the film in strikingly mundane ways. Amy (Kate Lyn Sheil), the protagonist, mills about aimlessly, seemingly overwhelmed by the number of ways she could spend her last day, ends up whiling away the hours with morbidly mundane stuff like looking up urns or wondering if her skin could be made into a leather jacket.

Others, like Brian (Tunde Adebimpe) and Tilly (Jennifer Kim) immediately lose interest in the charade they’ve each been maintaining for the other’s benefit, agreeing that they were never going to work out as a couple and that they were going to leave each other as soon as it didn’t seem callous. She Dies Tomorrow dances from existential dread to compressed breakup story to withering comedy from scene to scene. The film takes the gravity of its premise and juxtaposes it with mundanity, and in doing so its characters all feel so silly and self-absorbed. Then the idea infects me, and I feel silly and self-absorbed.

Incomprehensibly big, destabilizing events have a way of warping everything around them, forcing everything into a new context. She Dies Tomorrow arriving in the midst of a global pandemic that, among other things, inspires a general feeling of mundane helplessness gives the film a recursive quality: we are all surrounded by our own doom and the temptation of that doom is narcissism, to spend all of our time stunned by how our world is being rearranged.

She Dies Tomorrow isn’t interested in resolution, but if you lean forward, you can find interrogation. As each character is infected with the idea that their end is coming, they stare at the camera as barely discernible voices fade in and red and blue lights change the contours of their face. We don’t know what’s going through their minds, but we can imagine: how are you living right now, and how is it different from the ways you’ve always lived? Is there a good reason for that? Who put the idea in your head that it has to be this way?

“Do you want to make out?” a man (Adam Wingard) asks Amy as they get high together and she tries to figure out what to do next on her last day. She consents, but they eventually call it off before anything really happens. It doesn’t feel right. Nothing feels right. And whether there’s an answer to the question of how right Amy or her friends are about their fate, nothing ever will again.
