Big thanks to all viewers around the globe, announcing you all that a character from the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been named as the most popular movie villain worldwide. Can you guess who it is? Yes, it is … Tanos.
Topping the List
Topping the list is a creature with supreme power, Tanos, the villain popularly portrayed by Josh Brolin in the highly-profitable Avengers sequel movies. The data says Tanos claims the win at a 94% score for the movie Avengers: Endgame according to Rotten Tomatoes, is searched 584,000 times on Google, and is viewed 164,475 times on Wikipedia page. A scene of how he eliminates half of the planet’s population in one blink of an eye in Avengers: Infinity War is assumed to be a big part that makes Tanos such a legend. A moment that has been obviously among the most noticeable movie scenes for recent years. In the movie, the war against Tanos led Tony Stark, making the villain even more hated.
Sitting as the runners-up to Tanos are quite predictable. At No. 2 is Darth Vader of Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, his highest-rated movie, and Joker, Batman’s nemesis, is at No. 3 with The Dark Knight. Following No. 3, here are the top ten: No. 4 is Lord Voldemort of Harry Potter series, followed by Kylo Ren in Star Wars series at No. 5, then Hannibal Lecter of The Silence of the Lambs is the 6th, Terminator in The Terminator is the 7th, while the 8th is Palpatine featured in Star Wars series, next is Alien of Alien at No. 9, and No 10 is Lord Farquaad of Shrek.
Making up the rest of the list, with dozens of our favorite bad guys making the rankings. That includes memorable names as Biff Tannen with Back to the Future, Doctor Octopus of Spider-Man 2, Vito Corleone in The Godfather, Ursula representing The Little Mermaid, and HAL 9000 with 2001: A Space Odyssey. Two other Batman enemies, Two-Face and Catwoman of Dark Knight series also join the list. Freddy Krueger in A Nightmare on Elm Street, Norman Bates in Psycho, and Michael Myers with Halloween are also there in the list. Surprisingly, Jason Voorhees of Friday the 13th series and Chucky in Child’s Play series do not make it.
While this list is written based on particular data to set up the positions, the fact is selecting a favorite villain is referred back to everyone’s opinion. Many people will probably agree that Tanos deserves the top position as the world’s most popular villain. However, many other people out there insist that Joker or Darth Vader should have been at the top of the list instead of Tanos.
