This post will not include any spoilers for Spider-Man: No Way Home! This is just me thinking out load what villains I’d love to see in a potential MCU Spider-Man 4. And with any modern superhero movie, one villain just is not enough, so here are the pairs of villains I’d love to see Spider-Man face off against in the potential future movie.

Kraven the Hunter + The Chameleon

I know. Whenever I talk about potential Spider-Man movie villains, Kraven the Hunter is always on my list (see here, here & here). He is a classic villain who can go toe to toe with Spider-Man with speed, agility, and strength. He is a hunter who stops at nothing to catch his prey. He is very different than the past villains that the MCU Spider-Man has come across- he is not in this for greed (Vulture) or tech (Mysterio), but a desire to best Spider-Man. I’d add into the mix the Chameleon, Kraven’s half brother, to make things a bit more interesting and to tie them to Spider-Man Far From Home which introduced Chameleon’s alter ago Dimitri Smerdyakov (portrayed by Numan Acar). The Chameleon can use his master of disguise skills to trick Spider-Man into a situation where he’ll need to face off with Kraven (in lets say… Central Park).

Kingpin + The Prowler

I’ve watched to see a live-action Kingpin vs Spider-Man ever since first seeing them face off in the 90s Spider-Man animated series. The villain’s tower, filled with weapons, robots, and other villains, is the perfect place for them to have a climatic fight (maybe Kingpin used fake companies to buy Avengers tower??). With Into The Spider-Verse pairing Kingpin with the Prowler, I think the dynamic could work well here also. The Prowler moves like Spider-Man and is much better than the crime boss visually in a fight with the friendly neighborhood hero. Would Prowler be Kingpin’s right hand? Or more of a reluctant villain? It was great seeing Donald Glover as Prowler’s alter ago Aaron Davis in Spider-Man Homecoming, and I would LOVE to see him return to the role. Having him in the mix could also lead to the first MCU appearance of Miles Morales, who is Davis’ nephew.

Man-Wolf + J. Jonah Jameson

J. Jonah Jameson has always been one of Spider-Man’s main foes (and sometimes his reluctant ally). JK Simmons owned the role in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies, and it was so good to see him in Far From Home. I will not discuss No Way Home, but he can be seen in the trailers and viral marketing, so I’ll leave that there. In the comics & animated shows Jameson has been known to get more hands on with his hate for Spider-Man and has tried to take out the Spider-Menace himself. John Jameson aka Man-Wolf is J. Jonah’s son and had a great introduction in Raimi’s Spider-Man 2. I fully believe if Raimi kept making Spier-Man movies that John would have become Man-Wolf. It did not happen, but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t happen now! John Jameson could be on a mission in space where he finds the mystical Godstone, and upon taking it back to earth he turns into the Man-Wolf and terrorizes NYC. J. Jonah Jameson could take advantage of his son’s new found strength/rage and convince him to go after Spider-Man. Man-Wolf adds a layer of horror to Spidey what we have not seen in any live-action version of the character. Could be pretty cool. No matter what happens in future Spider-Man movies, I think we all want JK Simmons to keep appearing!

What are your favorite horror titles? What horror character would you love to get a new ongoing series?


Peter Parker Spiderman

Spiderman is rebooting again. This would get a giant eye-roll- but (and a BIG but here) the web crawler is rebooting into the Marvel Cinematic Universe! That is so epic-ly amazing (spectacular, sensational, astonishing, superior, etc.) that we can ignore the constant reboots (we would do the same and be equally excited if the Fantastic Four were inserted into the Marvel mothership movie universe). With Spiderman entering a new universe, maybe, just maybe we can have him face off with some new villains. We have speculated about Spiderman movie villains in the past (and even had some success, hello Rhino).

Here we go, our picks for possible villains in the Spiderman Reboot!

Spiderman Kingpin

Kingpin

Who is to say that the main villain of a Spiderman movie needs to be introduced in the new Spiderman movie? Lets skip that and use a villain already established in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (even if it was on the Netflix/TV side of things). Kingpin is one of the most iconic Spiderman villains and was masterfully played by Vincent D’Onofrio. He opens the door to grounding Spiderman but at the same time introducing a lot of possible characters (including a cameo or team-up with Daredevil). This would be a great way to tie together different portions of the Marvel Universe while firmly placing Spiderman in the center of things.

spidermanvillain-kraventhehunter

Kraven the Hunter

Okay, I know, this is a repeat of a pick from a past list of villains I wanted to see in a Spiderman sequel, but he is just too good not to use. This is not a villain that wants to destroy the world or take over the city. This is a hunter that wants to take out Spiderman and the two are pretty equally matched in strength and speed. What better test for a new teenage Peter Parker/Spiderman? Just imagine them fighting across Manhattan or battling in the Bronx Zoo. I love the idea of Spiderman fighting someone that isn’t straight up evil per say, but is an animal like villain. Kraven also has ties to other villains that could be included, like his half brother the Chameleon or Vermin.

Spiderman Morlun

Morlun

I was on the fence with this one. Merlin as a villain is either loved or loathed by Spiderman fans. The Other storyline added so much complication to Spiderman’s backstory and would deb so unneeded for a new series of movies, but at the same time he is a formidable big bad and could open a ton of new doors for future movies and characters; Ezekiel, Silk, and of course the possibility of doing a live action version of “Spider-Verse” (which could put Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield back into the suit!). I might be getting too ahead of myself, but I think there is a way to introduce Morlun without the over complications. I’d love to see some of the alternate world Spidermen (and women- Mayday Parker!).

Spiderman White Rabbit

White Rabbit

Okay, so this is a joke entry (sort of- Spiderman really needs more female villains). White Rabbit is the addition to this list that is similar to Rhino in my last Spiderman Movie Villains List, she wouldn’t be the headlining villain, but someone that Spiderman faces over the course of the movie. She could be robbing a bank or museum, etc. Spiderman’s world needs to be rich with costumed villains and the montages in the movie should reflect this. Hey, maybe they could throw in some established small villains from Agents of SHIELD, Daredevil, or past Marvel movies for Spiderman to punch over the course of the new film. I want to feel his connection to the bigger world (but I don’t necessarily want him over shadowed by Ironman or Captain America).

Who would you like to see Spiderman face off against in the new movie?

Cover The Amazing Spiderman issue 1

Just in time for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to hit theaters, we have the return of Peter Parker in a relaunched The Amazing Spider-Man along with a new issue #1. For the past year and a half The Superior Spider-Man saw Otto Octavius fighting crime in Spider-Man’s body. He has alienated Parker’s friends and changed the heroes life in a number of ways. It should be interesting to see where Peter Parker will go from here. I for one am happy to have him back under the mask and will be following his new adventures in The Amazing Spider-Man.

The Amazing Spider-Man #1
Official Description: The Greatest Super Hero of All Time RETURNS! The world may have changed since Spidey’s been gone, but so has Peter Parker. This is a man with a second chance at life, and he’s not wasting a moment of it. Same Parker Luck, new Parker attitude. Putting the “friendly” back in the neighborhood, the “hero” back into “super hero,” and the “amazing” back into “Spider-Man!” Also returning: The recharged and reenergized ELECTRO!

I guess we shouldn’t be surprised to see the return of Electro, with him taking center stage in the new Spider-Man flick. The issue hit stands this past Wednesday, from Marvel Comics.

Poster Amazing Spiderman 2

Release Date:  May 2, 2014
Studio:  Sony Pictures
Director:  Marc Webb
Cast: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, Felicity Jones.
Plot: We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.

It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.

Thoughts: The Amazing Spider-Man was not a perfect movie by any means, but it was a big step int he right direction. Garfield was able to capture the heart of Peter Parker and the movie had the charm of the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. The sequel is stepping up the stakes and throwing the s#*t into the fan. I’m excited that they aren’t holding back anymore. Give us the big Spider-Man film we all want to see. I just hope they don’t spend the whole time building towards future films (they have already announced 2 more Spider-Man solo films along with 2 spinoffs; The Sinister Six and Venom).

Excited to websling around the city again? Annoyed that there is another installment of the franchise already? Sound off in our comments.

The Lizard? Morbius the Living Vampire? I did not know about this issue when I posted last week (See: Four Possible Amazing Spider-Man 2 Villains), but in terms of villains/allies both the Lizard and Morbius work well together as both have tragic origins routed in science. Written by Dan Slott with art by Giuseppe Camuncoli and covers by Camuncoli and J Scott Campbell. I’m not too surprised to see the Lizard return around the release of the Amazing Spider-Man, which features Rhys Ifans as Curt Connors/the Lizard- not the first time we’ve seen Connors on the big screen, but this will be the first appearance by the Lizard in a movie adaptation.

Official description: Spider-Man, Peter Parker, Curt Connors, and the Lizard. The stars of this summer’s big blockbuster movie are right here! Morbius the Living Vampire is on the loose and no one at Horizon Labs is safe–including a recently cured Curt Connors. But if Curt Connors is cured, who or what is that new Lizard creature? It’s definitely someone Spider-Man knows!

I’m excited to see Morbius mixing it up with Spider-Man again, could this lead to a future movie appearance? And who could the mysterious new Lizard be? The issue hits stands on July 5th. On July 3rd, we get the release of the Amazing Spider-Man starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone! Excited? Ready to be amazed?
