We all know the success Marvel Studios is having right now and it’s not just their movies which are breaking numerous records as television series based on their characters are also doing pretty good in the market. There was a time when there were only movies on the big screen which was the only platform for Marvel superheroes to show what they are all about.
But, after the incoming of Marvel Cinematic Universe and the success it had, it was an easy decision for Marvel Studios to think about transferring some of the tales of their famous superheroes on the small screen. With the incoming of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ back in 2013, Marvel Studios has drawn the first line of connection between the cinematic universe and the universe of television.
After that first line, we saw many connections on the small screen to the bigger cinematic universe in all these years. But, it’s not the case if we talk about connections of television series in the movies which we have seen in all these years on the big screen as it seems like they don’t really know about the existence of their version on the smaller screens.
So, today we are going to talk about some of the characters who has been really successful in earning bucks and plaudits both form the fans and even from the most bitter critics out there as there are many characters on the small screen who deserves to be on the big screen after the success they had and also the brilliant work they’ve produced in front of the fans. The list is given below and without wasting any more time, we should jump straight down below.
We all know what a great villain Kingpin has been in Marvel Comics and when Vincent D’Onofrio portrayed the role of this giant and suited villain in the Daredevil on Netflix went down as one of the memorable villains of all-time in the history of the small screen. We all have seen the performances Vincent has given in the series as he replicated the shyness and aggression of Kingpin perfectly on the screen.
The amazing success this character had on the small screen is a sign of his popularity and also the kind of villain he is. Also, we all know that he is one of the most popular and famous villains of Spider-Man’s life and having him on the big screen will be a huge satisfaction and a dream come true.
14. John Proudstar:
There are few actors in the MCU who have portrayed their respective characters as accurate as the comic book and proudly Blair Redford is one of those actors who has portrayed the role of John Proudstar very well in the show ‘The Gifted is almost flawless’.
Proudstar who is also known as Thunderbird is one of the earliest members of the X-Men team as he has been with the team in some missions. There are very high chances that when MCU will expand Xavier’s team of mutants after the completion of Disney-Fox, there are chances that we will something of this superhero on the big screen.
13. Agent May:
In the first season of the ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’, we saw that Melinda May in the role of top agents of the organization and the great interesting part is that she possesses the same kind of powers and fighting skills as Black Widow.
But, we haven’t seen May working with Nick Fury or Maria Hill so there aren’t many chances that we are going to see her in the movie ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home despite the existence of SHIELD keeps on going even after the happening and end of the events of ‘Avengers 4’.
But, there are little chances that Nicky Fury will recruit Agent May for a mission as we all know that she is really good and it’s going to be very hard for Nick Fury and Marvel Studios of not introducing her to the big screen.
12. Lauren And Andy Strucker:
There aren’t many connections between Marvel and X-Men but we all know that a lightweight connection is in there between marvel Cinematic Universe and the X-Men because of a family of Von Strucker.
We have seen in the movie Avengers: Age of Ultron that Von Strucker was the leader of HYDRA and was the one who increased the powers of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Also, in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we have seen that it’s his son who is building HYDRA again by joining and helping Grant Ward.
So, as we all know that Andy and Lauren Strucker are the grandchildren of Andy and Andres von Strucker. Only a few viewers know that these two children are the direct link between Marvel’s Avengers and the X-Men of Fox. So, with Disney-Fox deal completing in near future, Marvel should bring the whole history of these characters on the big screen.
11. Cloak And Dagger:
I don’t think there is any superhero fan out there who haven’t heard about ‘Cloak and Dagger’ as the show has been a tremendous success on the small screen and got an incredible rating of 91% average approval on Rotten Tomatoes and was also the number one show of cable. If we go into the comics, then we find out that they have joined hands with Secret Avengers, Secret Defenders, X-Men, and also with the Runaways.
We all know that this duo has connections with almost every Marvel character in the comics which makes it even easier for the people at Marvel Studios in order to bring something on the big screen about them.
Olivia Holt has portrayed her character of Tandy Brown perfectly and also Aubrey Joseph’s Ty Johnson has nailed his role. So, there are chances that maybe we will see them in a Young Avengers movie someday.
10. Black Bolt:
We all know how powerful Black Bolt is and also the power he possesses as even a whisper from him is more than enough to kill his enemies off. As a result of which he can never speak and it’s not easy to bring a character this powerful but also who never speaks on the big screen until and unless it’s not portrayed in the best manner possible.
Also, the star this character had in the Inhumans was simply drastic and sad to see. But, we shouldn’t talk about the disaster Black Bolt we have seen in the Inhumans because of disastrous CGI effects and the story. So, we all really hope to see a better and bigger version of the character because the powers he possesses are simply incredible and needs to be seen on the big screen.
9. Misty Knight:
The fans of Luke Cage were impressed a lot by the acting skills of Simone Missick in the role of Misty Knight and a lot of fans were impressed by her acting. Even Marvel was impressed by her acting and in order to congratulate her, they include her in The Defenders and also in the second season of Iron Fist on the small screen.
Misty don’t hold any superhuman powers but it’s her knowledge about the crime and underworld in the New York City which can help any superhero in getting prepared for the villains of the city and also she can be a very useful part of the S.H.I.E.L.D.
In the comics, we have seen that she knows T’Challa and is also quite familiar to Wakanda. And hopefully, we will see her character in an upcoming Avengers movie as a lot of things happen in the NYC if we talk about the MCU movies.
I don’t think it’s really hard for Marvel Studios to bring this character on the big screen as we all know that Polaris who is currently a part of the show The Gifted is the daughter of Magneto and with that connection there are signs that we will see him soon after the Disney-Fox deal in the team of Magneto and his Brotherhood.
As we all know that Phase 4 is going to start and there are very high chances that Magneto is going to be the main villain around which the Marvel Studios is going to revolve and if this is going to be the case than there are very high and sensible chances that we will see Polaris joining hands with his father in order to take on the world.
7. The Runaways:
Marvel’s teenage superheroes show is filled with a lot of not-so-popular superheroes but the gamble of producing it on the small screen has been played out pretty well as we all know that the first season of the show has been a tremendous success and this is the right time when they should start thinking about a possible move for The Runaways to the big screen.
After the success of first season now fans are quite familiar with the powers these characters possess and also now are the time when Marvel can seriously think about giving The Runaways some space with Tom Holland in a Spider-Man movie and there are chances that this gamble will also end up being a great success.
6. Typhoid Mary:
There were a lot of great things in the second season of Iron Fist and one of the most favorite thing was the character of Typhoid Mary which has been portrayed by Alice Eve and we have to admit that she did more than enough justice to the character of Mary as she portrayed both the parts of the character perfectly on the small screen as in part we can see her soft and gentle character while she is in the zone of Mary and has also portrayed the other persona in which she is a ruthless and very professional investigator.
In the comics, we have seen that Wade Wilson and Typhoid Mary are both connected as they both are part of a mental disorder. So, there are chances that we will see this strong character very soon on the big screen.
We all know that there are a lot of viewers out there who are simply in love with the character of Quake as we all know that she has been introduced in the show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and in which we saw that when she’s not working in the team of Coulson’s spies, she’s been out and saving the world in the name of Quake.
There are a lot of rumors circling her promotion to the big screen as she holds vibration manipulative powers which can easily be useful for the team of Avengers. But, there are signs that the actress Daisy Johnson don’t want to leave the small screen despite getting lured by the big screen but time will tell whether we will get the chance to see her on the big screen or not.
4. Iron Fist:
There were many fans out there who thought that they’ll see ‘The Defenders’ in the movie ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ because they’re one of the most important and directly connected characters of the Marvel Studios. But, the dream of seeing Iron Fist joining hands with Captain America or Iron Man vanished after the release of the movie.
We all know it has been a tough road for Iron Fist on the small screen but the response second season gained and also the positive hopes which started circling the show collapsed when it was reported that the third season of Iron Fist has been cancelled but there are also reports that Marvel is going to introduce the further seasons of Iron Fist on the streaming service of Disney because the second season has ignited the spark again in the hearts of fans for this superhero.
3. Luke Cage:
We all know that Luke Cage’s debut season was simply one of the best shows of Marvel till this date and also the second season of the show just pumped-up the expectations of fans with season 3.
But, the news of Netflix cancelling the third season went like a bomb on the fans and a lot of people saw this news as an absolutely indigestible thing. So, there are chances that we are going to see Marvel using the success of this great superhero on the big screen.
2. Frank Castle:
There are many reasons why Avengers never asked Frank Castle to join their team in the comics but one of the most vital and important reason is that Frank Castle doesn’t believe in handing his enemies or culprits to the authorities as he believes in killing them and ending the chaos for once and all.
Like many other superheroes, Frank Castle is also on a mission to eliminate all the villains and bad entities out there but his way of doing things is very brutal and his no mercy attitude is one of his biggest and most powerful traits. We all know about the success Jon Bernthal is had in the small screen and maybe it’s high time for Marvel to introduce him in an Avengers movie.
If there is any superhero that needs an immediate entry on the big screen then it is undoubtedly the ‘Daredevil’ because of the success and fan base it has created on the small screen after the end of its third successful season. Also, I think anyone will give their sight in order to get all the amazing superhuman powers Daredevil has.
As we all know and have seen that Daredevil is extremely powerful and the reason for that is none other than the radioactive isotope which was the also the sole reason for him getting blind. But, the strengths and powers he has are simply incredible as he has incredible accuracy and superhuman sensitivity which is the reason he can be far stronger than a person with sight.
Also, he has developed a sort of radar sensor which allows him to know where the point of the danger of people is. Daredevil is very powerful because of the help of those superhuman senses he can sense the vulnerability of his opponents and exploits them later.
So, these are the characters which we really want to see on the big screen because they deserve to be on the big screen because of the success they had on the small screen. What are your views on this? Tell us in the comments section below.
