Who Is the Most Popular Marvel Superhero?

With so many incredible characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, its hard to pick a favorite. Captain Marvel is so empowering, Captain America is so selfless, Groot is so adorable. Still, some fans on Ranker managed to pick their favorite Avenger. Who is the most popular Marvel superhero? Find out below.

Of course, Iron Man ranks highly in the list of fan-favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe characters

We love this character 3000. Sure, he’s frank, sassy, and a little rude, but if you dig deep, Tony Stark is a man with a heart even bigger than his ego. On Ranker, Iron Man is the second-highest character on the list of “The Best Characters In The Marvel Cinematic Universe,” right after Stan “The Man” Lee.

Unfortunately, after starring multiple solo movies and a few Avengers films, fans have come to the end of Iron Man’s story. But don’t worry — his legacy continues on with his daughter and with characters like Spider-Man, portrayed by Tom Holland.

Thor, played by Chris Hemsworth is another fan favorite

Maybe it’s his muscles in Thor: Ragnarok or maybe it’s his beer belly in Avengers: Endgame. This character steals the hearts of everyone he meets. With his ax and hammer, Thor also ranks as one of the strongest Avengers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Thor is third on Ranker’s list of best MCU characters, so it’s only natural for fans to wonder what’s next in Thor’s story. At the end of Avengers: Endgame, fans saw Thor leave with the Guardians of the Galaxy crew. Although not much has been revealed yet, Marvel has confirmed a third Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

Spider-Man/Peter Parker used to be a fan favorite in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Spider-Man was definitely among the fan favorites in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Tom Holland’s portrayal of the character first appeared in Captain America: Civil War. Since then, he’s starred in multiple Marvel and stand-alone movies, including the recent blockbuster, Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Unfortunately for Spider-Man fans, the character might be leaving the Avengers just as quickly as he joined. Thanks to a dispute between Disney and Sony, the character might remain the property of Sony. However, Sony recently produced well-received movies dealing with the same character, including Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Who are the new characters joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Thanks to Disney’s upcoming streaming platform, Disney Plus, fans will have to chance to watch new characters in different movies and exclusive television shows. That includes Ms. Marvel, the first female Muslim character to join the MCU. Additionally, old characters will have their own spin-off television shows, like The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and WandaVision.

What’s the next Marvel movie to be released? Although Marvel is introducing a whole slew of new characters, the next movie to be released is Black Widow, a film that details the origin story of Natasha Romanoff.

Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and Disney content will available for streaming on Disney’s subscription platform, Disney Plus, starting Nov. 12, 2019.
