Best-looking Marvel actors and actresses

Movie theaters are being filled with, what seems like, a new Marvel movie every month, with Deadpool 2, The Avengers: Infinity War, and Ant-Man and The Wasp, being released this year.

In the world of comic book films, it’s crucial that the actors match the character; this can either make or break the entire film. However, we do have to admit how great of an advantage it is when the actors are major eye candy. Here is a list of the best-looking marvel actors:

1. Micheal B. Jordan

With the recent release of Black Panther, Micheal B. Jordan is new to the Marvel scene, however, has undeniably caught our attention with his fierce character and devious smile. In addition to the abundance of shirtless fight scenes, you get to really see why Jordan ranks #1 on this list of Marvel eye candy.

2. Chris Hemsworth

One word. Four letters. THOR! Chris Hemsworth is definitely the full package; the accent, the body, the hair. We definitely can’t forget that he plays a God, which only makes him exceed the limit of attractiveness.

3. Ryan Reynolds

In Ryan Reynolds role in Deadpool, it’s safe to say that no matter how funny, Wade Wilson definitely isn’t good looking at all – post-experiment of course! However, there is truly tons of eye candy under that burnt face of Wade Wilson. Reynolds was named People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive in 2010, which is not a surprise. He has a great sense of humor and combined with his ability to effortlessly look jaw-dropping, Reynolds is at number three on this list of Marvel eye candy!

4. Hugh Jackman

Jackman has had our hearts since the dawn of time with X-Men Origins: Wolverine. When interviewed by Ryan Reynolds for ET, Jackman was asked: “Do you ever age?” Jackman proudly responded, “not since 2008.” It may be a shock to know that Jackman is actually 49 years old, and without a doubt, his looks only continue to get better with age. In the third and final film of the Wolverine series, Logan, Jackman flaunts his full-grown bushy beard. When it comes to Hugh Jackman, age is definitely just a number!

5. Scarlet Johannsson

Without a doubt, Scarlet Johannsson is who women want to be, and who men want to be with. At just 33, Johannsson was listed number 1 on World’ds Top 10 Highest Paid Actresses, has a star on the Hollywood Hall of Fame, and has plenty more accomplishments. She continues to surprise audiences with her ability to play versatile roles, from her performance in Lost in Translation to her fierce role in Lucy. In an article with DailyMail, the actress admits that she has missed out on roles because she was considered “too sexy.” However, her sexiness definitely earns her a role on this list.

6. Chadwick Boseman

We definitely can’t forget Chadwick Boseman! Coming in sixth place is the honorable Black Panther. We first saw Chadwick in the Avenger face-off Captain America: Civil War, which undoubtedly sent enthusiasm through the crowd. Chadwick is the king of everyone’s dreams. In a Rolling Stones article, Director Ryan Coogler described why he choose Boseman, saying, “His physicality, his reserved personality, the way he looks younger than he is, wise beyond his years.” Boseman is a rookie to the Marvel scene, however, it’s exciting to see what the future has in store for the King of Wakanda.

7. Lupita Nyongo

In 2014, Nyongo triumphed #1 as People Magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful Women. She’s also the first Kenyan- Mexican actress to receive an Academy Award. In her recent role in Black Panther, Nyongo graced the audience with her gorgeous glow and humor, but also intense battle scene as she plays a strong black female character.

8. Danai Gurira

Yes, another Black Panther actress! It’s clear that not only did these women dominate Marvel’s Black Panther, but also this list of Marvel’s eye candy. Danai is no stranger to our eyes, as she starred in The Walking Dead, and All Eyes On Me, however, we can confidently say we aren’t going to get tired of her anytime soon. Gurira does an amazing job, and truly embodies feminism, bravery, and strength in her role as Okoye in Black Panther. This is also shown in her personal life as she is an activist, and has founded a non-profit organization called Love Our Girls. Danai Gurira is truly the finest example of beauty shining inside and out.

Fun Fact: Danai Gurira earned her Bachelor of Arts of Psychology at Macalester College

9. Krysten Ritter

At number nine is Krysten Ritter; who plays Jessica Jones on Marvel Netflix series Jessica Jones. Krysten Ritter’s dark and awkward attributes give her a unique look that no one else could pull off. Ritter describes herself as “tall, gawky and really, really skinny,” which undoubtedly contributes to her early success in the modeling industry. Krysten has the perfect looks to play Jessica Jones, with her dark and strong features alone she amazes us, however, when combined with the awesomeness of her character and attitude, it can be confidently said that Krysten Ritter is definitely Marvel eye candy.

10. Robert Downey Jr.

In a TMZ article, Robert Downey Jr.’s looks were put under a microscope to determine whether they were a result of money well spent or good genes. Either way, it’s undeniable that the 50-year-old actor steals the show with his great looks. This is another case of looks getting better with age. Speaking of age, Downey Jr. recently announced that he’ll soon be retiring from Iron Man. Fortunately, this won’t have an effect on how sexy he is, however, some of you Iron Man fans might be disappointed.

Ramadan

By: Mariam Warsamee Ilham Ali

Ramadan begins at the start of the ninth month, of the Islamic lunar calendar. It is determined by the sighting of the crescent moon; there are actual moon-watching committees all around the world to make sure there aren’t any confusion on when the correct date is. Once the crescent moon is seen, the announcement of Ramadan is shared with all Muslims around the world through the news and radio.

Ramadan this year will be on May 17th.

Ramadan is the month where Muslims fast from sunrise to sundown. Ramadan is a holy month to Muslims; instead of going out to eat it is recommended that you eat at home with your family. Muslims are required to fast because it is one of the five pillars of Islam. Muslims must fast if they are mature and healthy for the full day. Muslims fast as an act to worship God, and as a chance to get closer to God. They also fast and to show sympathy to those in need, and they are required to give zakat (charity) to those who need it, if they are able.

The reason why Muslims fast is to achieve Taqwa. Taqwa is an Islamic term for being conscious and cognizant of Allah, of truth, of the rational reality, “piety, fear of God.” It is often found in the Holy Quran.

During Ramadan, Muslims try to achieve the highest degree of obedience by abstaining from food, drink, and sexual relations while fasting from sunrise to sundown. This discipline is a spiritual and moral improvement. According to beliefnet.com, “ It is also by means of fasting that those who never have to hunger or thirst are (to some extent) made personally aware of the plight of the underprivileged, which thus evokes a degree of social consciousness.”

It is through fasting that people become aware of how much they have, and become conscious that not everyone in this world gets three meals a day. They learn to appreciate all that God gave them.

Black Panther review

By: Sagal & Aniso

Black Panther is a really good movie. It is a Marvel movie, based off of the Captain America: Civil War movie. Most of the characters were introduced previously on the Captain America movie.

The majority of the characters were African American. The movie stood out because most of the cast was black, which made many people excited for its release.

The visuals of the movie were another reason why it was a major movie. The country Wakanda, where the movie takes place, is a beautiful country, and it’s special because Wakanda was never colonized. Wakanda has great natural resources like the healing plant they have. The people in the community have respect for each other and will fight for their country if necessary.

Our favorite character is Shuri, the sister of T’Challa/Black Panther. In the movie, she is really funny and outgoing. She worked a lot in the laboratory creating really cool things like: suits, imaginary cars, and planes. She’s very intelligent and she really loves her brother. She loves working with the stuff she created, and also loves messing with her brother.

Shuri and her brother have a really strong bond. There was a scene where Shuri was fighting Eric, and she was losing, and Eric tried to kill her. T’Challa saw what was going on, and ran over and started to fight Eric. He does not like people messing with his sister, and he proved it in that scene.

Eric is the “enemy” in this movie. Eric challenges T’Challa (the current king) for the crown to be king. When Eric was little, T’Challa’s dad killed Eric’s dad and left Eric behind, fatherless. That’s where all the hatred and revenge comes from.

To find out who gets hurt, and who gets to be king, you should go watch the movie. We personally think this movie is great, and should have a sequel.
