Unless you’ve been using your free time to become the next Jedi Master, there is no excuse for you not being totally obsessed with superheroes. It’s been our ultimate goal to become the next big superhero in the world of Marvel and DC, but Stan Lee has yet to realize our potential – so we don’t mind waiting a little longer. It’ll just make our powers grow even stronger, right? Yes, if you’re just as in love with the likes of Harley Quinn, Iron Man, Spider-Man and Superwoman as we are, you probably want to spend your whole life learning new and exciting things about them. This is why you need to be following these Twitter accounts…
Zoe Saldana @zoesaldana
I mean, do we even need to explain this one? As the star (but not Star-Lord) of Guardians of the Galaxy, Zoe Saldana takes on the role of Gamora in the franchise – and we’re kinda in love with her. Over the years, Zoe has teased her followers with behind the scenes pictures of the Marvel set, as well as a sneak peek into her everyday life. You know, when she’s not all green. With hundreds of thousands of followers, Zoe rocks Twitter.
Hugh Jackman @RealHughJackman
You don’t have to worry about following the wrong Hugh Jackman, because this guy makes it pretty obvious. Sure, Hugh Jackman might not have stepped into Wolverine’s shoes in a while, but that doesn’t make him any less cool. Hugh entertains his millions of followers every day with his pictures, as well as his dedication to the Marvel Universe. He occasionally has friendly Twitter feuds with Ryan Reynolds (AKA Deadpool) and it’s pretty darn hilarious.
Mark Ruffalo @MarkRuffalo
One of the main reasons you need to follow Mark Ruffalo on Twitter is to personally thank him for saving one of our favorite characters. After all, The Hulk was nothing before Mark came and took him over – and now he’s awesome! When he’s not smashing his competitors and donning his giant green suit, Mark Ruffalo spends his time posting about important matters to him and giving us a sneak peek into his family life. You just have to.
Chris Pratt @prattprattpratt
Ahhh, Star-Lord. What would we do without you? Chris Pratt is perhaps one of the funniest superheroes to come onto our screens, and he’s no different on Twitter. Following this guy will give you guaranteed laughs, and will fill you with so much superhero joy. If you fancy scrolling through his timeline a few years, you might even stumble across the photos from the coming out party he had for his abs when he was training for Guardians of the Galaxy. Hilarious.
Tom Hiddleston @twhiddleston
Does anyone else have a love/hate relationship with Loki? We kinda hate him for turning his back on Thor so many times, but we kinda love him because… well, because it’s Tom Hiddleston! Yes, the man behind the helmet definitely isn’t as mean as his on-screen character, and the British actor is actually rather hilarious. While he doesn’t post that often, it’s not always about quantity. It’s the quality that counts.
James Gunn @JamesGunn
James Gunn is one of the most famous filmmakers in the Marvel Universe, and is credited for bringing Guardians of the Galaxy into our lives. However, this guy is just as big a nerd as we are, and he loves to tease his followers with superhero news and Marvel updates. He’s also hilarious, so at least you’ll get a good laugh out of it.
If you’re currently twiddling your thumbs and waiting for the next superhero movie to come into your life, you might want to start doing something productive. You know, like scrolling through your phone and obsessing over these Twitter accounts.
