5 Supporting Characters Who Outshined The Leads In Marvel Movies

Since the first Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movie was released in 2008, several films and TV shows have been produced and got popular with worldwide audiences. With more than two dozen Movies released and a bunch of talented actors/actresses casted, Marvel Studio is a place full of promising Hollywood celebrities.
Unfortunately, when there are so many stars in one particular movie, a supporting role can even outshadow the leads. Some side characters have caught great attention from Marvel fans by their own amazing story and their potential to be the next main character in a separate movie.
These are 5 MCU supporting characters that fans found them even more interesting than the leads.

#1 Heimdall in Thor: Ragnarok

Having the ability to see everything within the Nine Realms, Heimdall (played by Idris Elba) drew great attention from the audience. The fans are longing for the returning of this character in a future MCU movie, even though he was unfortunately killed by Thanos.

#2 Pepper Potts in Iron Man

As the company's CEO and as Tony Stark's personal assistant and wife, Pepper Potts (played by Gwyneth Paltrow) intrigued the fans with her appearance and inner beauty. The fans feel like there could have been some more moments of her so that the audience can have more insight of this character.

#3 Odin in Thor: Ragnarok

As the protector of the Nine Realms, Odin is considered the most powerful king of Asgard with his power to banish Hela, Loki, and even Thor. Unfortunately, this amazing strength of Odin was not presented on the big screen. Otherwise, he could be another formidable character in the whole MCU.

#4 Luis in Ant-Man

Playing the role as Scott Lang's (Ant-Man) close friend, Luis won Marvel fans' hearts by his brilliant sense of humor, which further elevated the success of the movie. With his kindness, Luis not only helped Scott with a place to live and a job but encouraged him to execute his plan as well.

#5 Hope Van Dyne in Ant-Man

Here is another supporting role in the Ant-Man movie that the producers have failed to show more of her life and characteristics. Dyne was Scott Lang's trainer and supporter along his journey. Marvel fans are eager to have more insight of her since there is so many potential that Dyne could bring to the MCU.
