The Marvel Cinematic Universe is arguably the most successful film franchises in movie history, and though the studio has received some criticism for a lack of diversity, there’s definitely no lacking of beautiful women, as you’ll see here.
We combed through every MCU movie to date to bring you our list of the sexiest female characters we’ve met so far. The only super power they all share is the power to make us fall in love.
10. The Incredible Liv
The Incredible Hulk was released in 2008 and was the second film released in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Liv Tyler’s role as Betty Ross, Bruce Banner’s love interest and daughter of General Thunderbolt Ross, stood out with those adorable lips and breathtaking eyes. We have another superhero’s love interest coming in at #9.
9. Rachel McAdams Steals Attention From Dr. Strange
Blonde bombshell Rachel McAdams plays Dr. Christine Palmer, the love interest of the newest addition to the MCU, Doctor Strange. It’s unknown whether or not McAdams will have any appearances in the upcoming Marvel movies, but we were just happy to see her offering emotional support to Stephen Strange before he shows up to provide assistance in Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Infinity War.
8. Peggy The Pinup
Ok, so Peggy Carter is more than a pinup from the 1940s. We agree that she could take on practically anyone from Captain America: First Avenger. Although we probably wouldn’t be too interested in Peggy when she shows up in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. We have a new Asgardian up next for #7.
7. The Upgraded Valkyrie
Valkyrie is a blonde nurse in the comics and has been upgraded for Thor: Ragnarok. She will be played by the beautiful Tessa Thompson. The Asgardian who apparently sells Thor out to The Grandmaster looks absolutely stunning and obviously trained a lot for the film. She looks like an absolute goddess.
6. Be Careful Of The Black Widow’s Bite
Marvel Cinematic Universe veteran Scarlett Johansson had to show up somewhere on this list. Even though she doesn’t boast any superpowers, her fighting skills are pretty much unrivaled. We think the skin tight black jumpsuit is a nice touch as well. Another MCU veteran has been chosen to kick off the top #5.
5. Gods Fall At Her Feet
Natalie Portman plays Thor’s love interest, scientist Jane Foster. Even though her character will not appear in any more Marvel Studios films, she is technically still part of the universe. You really can’t beat an intelligent and gorgeous woman who plays an intelligent and gorgeous character who steals the heart of the God of Thunder.
4. Smarter Than Jane Foster
Elizabeth Henstridge plays S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Jemma Simmons on the ABC series, which is technically part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. When she’s not infiltrating Hydra, Simmons is stealing our hearts with her incredible mind. Another S.H.I.E.L.D. agent made the list coming in at #3.
3. Don’t Quake My Heart
Chloe Bennet is one of the main characters on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. She plays computer hacker Skye, until she is transformed into the well-known Marvel Inhuman named Quake. Skye hacked our hearts even though she has a penchant for unknowingly associating herself with known villains.
2. S.H.I.E.L.D. Sure Knows How To Pick ‘Em
Emily VanCamp plays the niece of Captain America’s “best girl” Peggy Carter. Sharon Carter is the cute neighbor assigned to look after Cap by Director Nick Fury. Now we know why Cap likes to keep it within the Carter family. Let’s travel a little farther into the galaxy for #1.
1. She Can Guard My Galaxy Anytime
Gamora, the sexy daughter of Thanos, is our #1 sexiest character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It says a lot that she can rank so high on the list without any eyebrows. What makes Gamora so sexy is her greenish good looks. If she’s good enough for Peter Quill, she’s good enough for us.
This list obviously changes depending on your superhero movie preference, but we feel it basically sums up the current state of females cast in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With two to three movies being released each year, this list is obviously going to evolve a little bit. Who did we miss?
Let us know if there is a character we completely spaced (no pun intended) on. Tell us which Marvel characters you would like to see introduced into the MCU and who you would like to see play them. With so many main character’s storylines said to be concluding there are literally hundreds of options.
