11 Anti-Heroes and Ways to Develop Them In Your Screenplay

Here’s what you need to know:

  • the Justifiable Anti-hero: their past offers an explanation of their actions, why they are the way they are (Mad Max, Wolverine, Rambo, Batman, Thelma and Louise)
  • the Near-Hero Anti-hero: they have the characteristics of a hero, but aren’t motivated by a general sense of justice or righteousness, often fueled by selfish causes (Han Solo, Madmartigan)
  • the Sociopathic Anti-hero: typically criminals with a clear lack of morals and ethics, they operate under a skewed perspective fitting to their own criminal world (Tony Soprano, Hannibal Lecter, Tony Montana)
