Nothing beats a good Marvel villain reveal. In fact, if there’s one thing the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been able to do especially well - and, let’s be honest, there’s a lot more than just one thing - it’s taking those characters that comic book readers know darn well are malevolent, and still making it a shocking surprise when said characters’ villainous intentions are unveiled onscreen. Somehow, the folks at Marvel Studios keep pulling it off.
The MCU is a franchise built on decades-old source material that faithfully adapts all the big twists of Marvel Comics lore while somehow still keeping them fresh and genuinely surprising. It’s one of the many things that makes watching the films and shows of the MCU so rewarding for fans old and new, and it’s what will continue to make the franchise relevant for generations to come.
