Ah, the arrogant supervillains. Why do we take so much interest in them? Maybe because most villains have the power to hold our attention.
With some exceptions, heroes are somewhat predictable, villains, on the other hand, are brutal, complex, and it is very hard to judge their next step. Sometimes they do things which we never anticipate. Like in the movie The Dark Knight, Joker killing Batman’s girlfriend. I mean how is this possible? But it happened.
No matter how dangerous villains are, I love them, and sometimes I wish if I could be like them. And according to a study, around 30% to 70% of people admit to having a violent fantasy. But we live in a nice society where killing someone is a crime, and this villain thing only works in movies.
Below you’ll find ten most powerful quotes by villains that can strike fear into the heart of any hero.
1. Heath Ledger as Joker.
2. Jack Nicholson as Jack Torrance.
3. Matthew Goode as Ozymandias.
4. Tom Hardy as Bane.
5. Sir Ian McKellen as Magneto.
6. Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter.
7. Jack Nicholson as Joker.
8. Al Pacino as Big Boy Caprice.
9. Dany DeVito as Penguin.
10. Al Pacino as Michael Corleone.
Villains are not just about their evil deeds, but sometimes a single line can mean the difference between becoming the next joker or the next joke. And there’s nothing stronger than an evil line by a supervillain. Maybe you got that hint by reading these lines.
