Appearances: Thor/Thor: The Dark World/Thor: Ragnarok, The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Avengers: Infinity War
After two so-so movies, the God of Thunder really got to shine in Thor: Ragnarok which kind of rebooted the Asgardian prince into a much more playful, fun character. That said, we’ve always enjoyed Chris Hemsworth’s banter with the rest of the heroes in the first two Avengers films.
Appearances: Daredevil, The Defenders
Most of the MCU’s heroes live in New York, but none of them care for the city as much as Matt Murdock who has pledged himself as its protector. A blind lawyer with extrasensory powers, Daredevil is also one of the few disabled superheroes out there.
Appearances: Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War
He was already awesome in Captain America: Civil War, but King T’Challa of Wakanda was really launched into the MCU’s big leagues with this year’s Black Panther. The character is like an amazing amalgamation of James Bond, Simba and Batman!
Appearances: Jessica Jones, The Defenders
A hard-drinking, foul-mouthed cynical detective, Jessica Jones is not your usual superhero – and she is all the better for it. Krysten Ritter gives one of the MCU’s best leading performances in her self-titled challenging and entertaining Netflix series.
