MTV Movie Awards: Supervillains Dominate 'Best Villain' Category


by Brett White

Look out, MTV Movie Awards, because the bad guys are coming! The five vile nominees for Best Villain all dove to new depths of treachery, proving that the best characters are the ones that we love to hate.

Of course three of the five nominees come from superhero films, proving that a hero is only as good as his villain. And boy oh boy, did these three do some damage. The dastardly duo from "The Dark Knight Rises," Miranda Tate (a.k.a. Talia Al Ghul) and Bane, brought Gotham City to its knees through extreme acts of urban warfare. Bane himself physically broke the Batman, a feat never accomplished in film. Over on the Marvel side of things, only one villain proved a big enough threat to warrant the response of six superheroes: Loki, the God of Mischief. Loki's scheming threatened to tear apart the Avengers, and his army of Chitauri aliens made a mess out of Manhattan.

To prepare you for this Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, here are clips showcasing each supervillain at their most evil. Don't forget to vote for your favorite and tune in to the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, Sunday April 14th at 9 p.m.
