We all have watched movies from various genres, like comedy, drama, action, and horror. A good movie primarily consists of a good story with good characters. Today, we are primarily, gonna focus on antagonists in other words villains of a movie which got the crowd cheering for the antagonist rather than the protagonist who is the main leading character in the movie.Personally, if given the choice the first antagonist who comes to my mind when I think about an antagonist is J. K. Simmons’s portrayal of Terence Fletcher from Whiplash.
Now, let’s have a look at some of the most epic antagonists in terms of the world of movies. Please do not forget to like and share and do not forget to share your thoughts and let us know did you antagonist make the cut or did we miss anyone.(h/t)
#10 The Joker (The Dark Knight Trilogy)
The Joker has been one of the main key factors which influenced the success of the The Dark Knight Trilogy. Heath Ledger truly was a master of his own class, his portrayal of Joker was sheer brilliance but the character Joker in itself is intriguing and appealing. The first that comes to my mind when I think about Joker is “All it takes is one bad day” which is a dark and grim truth.
#9 Magneto (X-Men franchise)
Magneto one of the key characters in the X-men franchise who had a bone chilling past where he had to face with the hazards of war at an early age which later led him to be one of the main antagonists.
#8 Frank Costello (The Departed)
Jack Nicolson who portrayed Frank Costello in the movie departed truly brought out the best of Frank Costello a truly wicked character.
#7 Dr. Evil (Austin Powers franchise)
Not all of the antagonists need to be threatening some can be utterly funny as well that is what Dr.Evil represents.
#6 Calvin J Candie (Django Unchained)
One of the most noteworthy work by Quentin Tarantino, Django Unchained is truly a masterpiece and the antagonist which was played by Leonardo DiCaprio is as good at it gets, the accent he talks in and the menacing looks and tantrums he pulls off are simply amazing.
#5 Voldemort (Harry Potter franchise)
If you are a fan of the Harry Potter franchise the, you all must know the one we do not speak of that’s right Voldemort who takes center stage as the plot thickens.
#4 Loki (MCU)
Think to yourself would the Avengers movie be as good without Loki in it, it wouldn’t right even though Iron Man was in the Movie along with Thor still Loki managed to still the show with his appealing character.
#3 Raoul Silva (James Bond franchise)
We all are familiar with the James Bond saga, there are a lot of James Bond movies out there Javier Bardem steals the show with his portrayal of Raoul Silva.
#2 Bane (The Dark Knight Rises)
Tom Hardy’s depiction of Bane in The Dark Knight Rises is astounding he is someone who comes closer to the Joker while Joker is a menace who challenges Batman through a mental perspective Bane is the one who challenges Batman through his physical attributes.
#1 Ultron (MCU)
A truly menacing character an AI with the ability to learn, that is what Ultron truly is an AI gone rogue, keep in mind Ultron fought against all of the avengers which is a feat in itself, he possess both physical and mental strength which is saying a lot.
