Picking The Perfect Masters Of Evil Team For The MCU

Thanos is going to be one hell of a hard act to follow as the "big-bad" of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

One way that he could be topped is if several villains team-up to form an evil counterpart to the Avengers - and what better team than the Masters of Evil?

There have been several iterations of the supervillain group in the comic books and there'd be no need to emulate any particular one - simply bringing together various villains, both old and new, from the movie franchise and giving them the name "Masters of Evil" would suffice.

We've hand-picked eleven villains to potentially form the team on screen - each with good reason - and we'd like to know what you think.

Baron Zemo

Daniel Bruhl will play Baron Zemo Daniel Bruhl will play Baron Zemo

Baron Zemo - a villain to both the Avengers and Captain America in the comic books - is set to appear in Captain America: Civil War, played by Inglourious Basterds star Daniel Bruhl.

He would be a great inclusion in a future on-screen depiction of the Masters of Evil, as he has led the group in the comics, has strategy and leadership skills, is a scientific genius, is a formidable fighter, would give the group links to HYDRA and their resources and would provide the personal connection to Captain America.

He'd be a threat on various levels and would be a formidable piece in the team's jigsaw.
