These Obscure Marvel Characters Definitely Deserve to Be Seen on the Big Screen

With Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings taking over cinemas, we wanted to introduce you to some more Marvel characters that you might not have heard of, but we definitely want to see on the big screen.

She-Hulk

Debuting in 1980, Jennifer Walters became She-Hulk after recieving an emergancy blood tranfusion from her cousin Bruce Banner who just so happens to be hulk himself. Simliar to Hulk, she is incredibly strong and green further adding meaning to the Kermit the Frog smash hit "It's Not Easy Being Green".

Namor

Namor, also known as the Sub-Mariner was one of the first Marvel characters ever created, first being put onto a comic strip in 1939! Being half human/half Atlantian, Namor is able to survive fully underwater and on land, along with other classic power such as super streangth and flying. It's honestly surprising he hasn't been in a film yet considering how much of a comic staple he is.

Captain Britain

Captain Britain is basically just Captain America with an accent and an addiciton to "The Great British Bake Off". Having gone through multiple iterations, Captain Britains powers include all those Captain America has, plus supersonic flight. It would be a delight to see Captain Britain team up with the new Captain America on the big screen.

Ka-Zar

Definitly the coolest hero on this list, Ka-Zar is essentially Marvel's version of Tarzan. A crime fighting jungle-man would completely blow the Disney Tarzan out of the water in my opinion and is something that definitly needs to happen.

Adam Warlock

Adam Warlock is simply one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Universe. He's essentially invincible as he can create a shield out of cosmic energy, regenrate himself and is also immortal. There's also his whole schtick where death can't claim his soul, making it truely impossible for him to ever die.

Squirrel Girl

Squirrel Girl is the best superhero ever created. Her main ability is of course being able to communicate with squirrels and with this power, she has defeated the likes of Doctor Doom, Thanos, and prevented Galactus from destroying Earth. Again, Squirrel Girl is the best superhero ever created.

Quasar

I'd love to talk about Quasar's powers and why he should be in a movie but I think Quasar is the most rediculous sounding name. I know it's also a thing that exists in very real black holes in space but for some reason the name fits there, but doesn't fit for a superhero. Eitherway look up his powers, he'd be cool in a movie.

Man-Thing

Alright, so technically Man-Thing has already had his own movie but it wasn't part of the MCU and from everything I've read, it was pretty awful. For that reason, I think it would be really cool to make an actual appearance by Man-Thing in an MCU film. Just look at him, I don't have to explain why it would be fun.

Hercules

Based of the famed character from Greek mythology, Hercules was first introduced to the Marvel comic world way back in the 60's when he helped out Thor. He posseses all the powers you'd expect from an Olympian god aside from the incredible singing ability demonstrated by the much more popular Disney Hercules.

Morbius, The Living Vampire

After a failed experiment, biochemist Michael Morbius became a psudo-vampire. It's unclear at times whether Morbius is a full villain or more of an anti-hero but he brings some grit that isn't often seen in Marvel films. There is actually a confirmed Morbius movie coming starring Jared Leto as the Vampire which sounds very exciting!
