Top 10 Characters from Popular Movie Franchises Who Should Get Their Own Movie


The Top Ten

1 Lord Voldemort (Harry Potter) Lord Voldemort (Harry Potter) Lord Voldemort is a fictional character and the central main antagonist in J. K. Rowling's series of Harry Potter novels. Voldemort first appeared in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, which was released in 1997.

This is a character who wanted to kill a infant because he would challenge him. He is pure evil, he is despicable and great to watch. However, the potential depth of the actual character that could be explored a lot more. - iliekpiez

Wow, this dude looks almost as ugly as the Emperor from Star Wars. I wonder if that's where the inspiration came from. - CharismaticKat

One aspect that the 'Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince' movie skimped on was Lord Voldemort's backstory, which is a shame as it was probably the most interesting part of the book. - SuperSonic17

It would be great if they made a movie about how he was born and how he killed Harry’s parents. - AnimeDrawer

2 Black Widow (Marvel Cinematic Universe) Black Widow (Marvel Cinematic Universe) Natalia Alianovna Romanoff, most known as Natasha Romanoff or the Black Widow, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. She is one of the most talented spies and assassins in the entire world and is a founding member of the Avengers. The character was created more.

This character is so great. In the MCU, her popularity is and still is rising. A solo film for this character with SHIELD and exploring more of her depth could make for a great MCU movie. - iliekpiez

Black Widow is one of the Avengers, and has been in the MCU since the beginning. If all the other Avengers(minus Hawkeye) get a solo movie, why shouldn't she have one too?

How do you come up with these lists? :O - TheFourthWorld

Come on, Marvel, she’s badass! Why, oh, God, why hasn’t she got her own movie? She’s the best! Mysterious, secretive, smart, independent... blah blah, the list goes on. Point is, Marvel’s missing one movie" the most important of them all

3 Cyclops (X-Men) Cyclops (X-Men) Cyclops is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics and is a founding member of the X-Men.

Never thought of this
but this would be cool - Metalfan2112

One of those origins movies killed them all. A shame because that movie was bad. This is a character I want to see cope with the power he has and how his relationship with Jean helped him through it and how Xavier helped it. - iliekpiez

4 Boba Fett (Star Wars) Boba Fett (Star Wars) Boba Fett is a fictional character in the Star Wars series. In The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, he is a bounty hunter hired by Darth Vader and also employed by Jabba the Hutt.

A movie has been canned. OH FOR GODS SAKE. WHO ASKED FOR A HAN SOLO ONE? I mean wow, with that out the way he could be still be an incredible movie with showing the darkness of moments in the galaxy. - iliekpiez

5 Albus Dumbledore (Harry Potter) Albus Dumbledore (Harry Potter) Professor Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore is a fictional character in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series.

This man seemed to have a complex childhood, as we learn in TDH, and could make for a great movie, and with FB 2 coming out, maybe there will be more depth but personally I would like a movie. - iliekpiez

He’s going to be in Fantastic Beasts 2! - Not_A_Weeaboo

6 Gandalf (The Lord of the Rings) Gandalf (The Lord of the Rings) Gandalf the Grey, later known as Gandalf the White, is a fictional character and one of the protagonists in J. R. R. Tolkien's novels The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. He was an Istar, sent by the West in the Third Age to combat the threat of Sauron, as well as leader of the Fellowship of the Ring more.

The best movie franchise, and this character needs to get explored. I want to see how his childhood moved along, I want to see how he got interested in magic and helping people and quests as a whole. - iliekpiez


7 Dick Grayson (Batman) Dick Grayson (Batman)

Yes he was in them. I want to see how the argument with Batman went, I want to see a proper in depth look at how he got on as Nightwing and therefore could be developed more in movie form. - iliekpiez

I need to know more about him as Nightwing - AliciaMae

8 Salazar Slytherin (Harry Potter) Salazar Slytherin (Harry Potter)

This is a character who created, for many years a evil house in HP. There was not even a witch or wizard who actually didn't go bad. I want to see why he thought what he thought about mud-bloods as a whole. - iliekpiez

9 Obi-Wan Kenobi (Star Wars) Obi-Wan Kenobi (Star Wars) Obi-Wan Kenobi is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, played by Sir Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor.

I feel like his entire life is explained away in the first few movies... maybe a movie about his childhood would make a little sense, but I don't think he really needs his own movie, personally - TheInsomniac

What... why did that get posted 3 times? - TheInsomniac

10 Loki (Avengers) Loki (Avengers)

One of the most beloved characters in the MCU. I hope we're getting a Loki solo movie soon!

Yes, please! - TheFourthWorld

Yeah, they really should make a movie on him. He's like the most popular MCU character, they'd make tons of money off it. Aaand I'd be the first one to buy tickets. - CharismaticKat


The Contenders

11 Wicked Witch (The Wizard of Oz) Wicked Witch (The Wizard of Oz)

I want to see, why she is the way she is, this will be tough but if people can put their full writing mind to it just might work, I also want to an actor who truly wants to play the role like Hamilton did. - iliekpiez

There's a Broadway play called Wicked that explores the Wizard of Oz from the Wicked Witch's perspective before and during Dorothy. They are even planning to make it a movie. You should try it out; it's very good. - listotaku17

If your local library has it, check out "Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West" by Gregory Maguire. It already inspired a stage musical, maybe it'll be a movie someday, too.

12 Yoda (Star Wars) Yoda (Star Wars) Yoda is a fictional character in the Star Wars space opera franchise created by George Lucas, first appearing in the 1980 film The Empire Strikes Back.

A character who just fought bad guys in the prequels, made him VERY uninteresting character there. I want to see what happened to his species, how he became a truly legendary Jedi. That would be awesome. - iliekpiez

He is already my favorite star wars character but I am starting to not like star wars as much as most people and having a yoda movie would definitely turn it around - -Pikachu-

I think he should get his own movies he is one of my favorite star wars character besides Rey.

If Han Solo got his own movie why not Yoda - Randomator

13 Darth Maul (Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace) Darth Maul (Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace) Darth Maul is a fictional character in the science fiction franchise Star Wars. Trained as Darth Sidious's first apprentice, he serves as a Sith Lord and a master of wielding a double-bladed lightsaber. Darth Maul first appeared in Star Wars Episode 1 The Phantom Menace, and has also appeared in The more.

This is confirmed is going to be made by the same guy who made Logan - Kanyae90

14 Haymitch Abernathy (The Hunger Games)
15 Storm (X-Men) Storm (X-Men) Storm (Ororo Munroe) is a mutant superhero appearing in Marvel Comics. Her first appearance was in Giant-Size X-Men #1 in 1975 and was created by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum. Her main super power is weather manipulation.
16 Jar Jar Binks (Star Wars Prequels) Jar Jar Binks (Star Wars Prequels)
17 Sauron (Lord of the Rings) Sauron (Lord of the Rings) Sauron is the title character and main antagonist of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. Originally a servant of the first Dark Lord, Morgoth. Morgoth was later defeated and Sauron fled. He later came back to Middle Earth and took over as the new Dark Lord by using a Ring of Power. He was later more.

Could be pretty epic - 2storm

18 Toad (X-Men)

This would be interesting. It could be a humorous yet action packed film, like Spider-Man Homecoming - BlueTopazIceVanilla

19 Joker (Batman) Joker (Batman) The Joker is a fictional super villain created by Bill Finger, Bob Kane, and Jerry Robinson who first appeared in the debut issue of the comic book Batman (April 25, 1940) published by DC Comics . Credit for the Joker's creation is disputed; Kane and Robinson claimed responsibility for the Joker's design, more.

There was suicide squad... does that count? - TheInsomniac

No-he was barely in it, but there is a movie coming out for the Joker. - iliekpiez

20 Darth Vader (Star Wars) Darth Vader (Star Wars) Darth Vader was the original dark lord for Star Wars. Darth Vader ruled with both fear and aggression. Originally Anakin Skywalker a young Jedi who was then seduced by the dark side of the force by Chancellor Palpatine/Darth Sidious. Vader had his limbs cut off by his jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi leaving more.

All tree prequels were his backstory

21 Bucky Barnes (Marvel Cinematic Universe)

We barely touch the surface in Captain America 2 of Bucky’s backstory. Also since he trained Black Widow it could explore the backgrounds of both characters!

22 Emperor Palpatine (Star Wars) Emperor Palpatine (Star Wars)
23 Anguirus (Godzilla)

The most underrated and unappreciated monster in the series. Godzilla, mothra and rodan have gotten their own movies. Anguirus basically gets the crap kicked out of him in each movie - RustyNail

24 Carnage (Marvel) Carnage (Marvel) Carnage (Cletus Kassidy) is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, usually as an enemy of Spider-Man.
25 The Mad Hatter (Alice in Wonderland)
26 C. C. (Code Geass)
27 Terry McGinnis (Batman Beyond)

There has been a really good animated film, but there should be a live action film, maybe a trilogy. - girlcool

28 Buck (Ice Age 3)
29 Rorschach (Watchmen) Rorschach (Watchmen)
30 Hawkeye (Marvel Cinematic Universe)
31 Severus Snape (Harry Potter) Severus Snape (Harry Potter) Severus Snape is a fictional character in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. He is characterised as a person of great complexity, whose coldly sarcastic and controlled exterior conceals deep emotions and anguish.
32 Johanna Mason (The Hunger Games)
33 Qui-Gon Jinn (Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace)
34 Newt: The Maze Runner

He's so likeable and has such a great backtory, I'd love a prequel about him
