10 Comic Book Characters Movie Studios Are Really Ramming Down Our Throats

Hey movie studios, you guys are aware that there are other great comic book movie characters out there who haven't had a chance to ever appear in a movie up to now, right?

There's a rich history of comic book stories dating back almost a century - and yet the same characters from those stories keep appearing in movies.

Don't get us wrong, there have been some great characters in comic book movies and it's both welcome and inevitable that they will appear and have appeared several times. However, when it's at the expense of other characters it can start to get a little tedious.

This article is going to look at some of the characters who - while they might be great characters who are loved by the fans - are starting to feel a little bit overused.

Here are ten comic book characters that movie studios seem determined to keep ramming down our throats.

Loki


Tom Hiddleston as Loki Tom Hiddleston as Loki

Loki is probably the best character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so it's not necessarily a bad thing that he has appeared three times in the franchise (Thor, The Avengers and Thor: The Dark World), however, when compared to other villains in the franchise (all of whom have only appeared once, bar Thanos, who is being built-up for his first major appearance with several minor ones) you can't help but feel that Loki is being overused.

Tom Hiddleston has played the character to perfection, but you can't help but feel that Marvel Studios are simply looking for any way to fit him into any movie they possibly can.

He was the villain in Thor, he was the villain in The Avengers, he somewhat redeemed himself in Thor: The Dark World, he was seen to be sitting on the throne of Asgard at the end of the same Thor sequel, he looks set to play a key part in Thor: Ragnarok and it is more than likely he will be by Thanos' side in the Infinity War movies.

It's only because the movie was too long that his needless scene was cut out of Avengers: Age of Ultron and you can't help but feel that he is getting in the way of the introduction of a number of other potentially great characters.
