10 MCU villains we need to see

Published

on

If we forget about the Black Widow and Falcon and Winter Soldier release dates, WandaVision began phase 4 of Marvel in January of this year. The excitement was palpable as we hadn’t seen a Marvel product since July 2, 2019 with Spider-man far from home. That’s 18 months along with a 2020 from hell that we soon forget.

So, with Marvel’s Phase 4, 5, and 6 spanning probably another decade with several Marvel TV movies and shows on Disney + in production and pre-production, thoughts of which villains will be littering our cinematic landscape are on both minds. fans and Kevin Feige and the heads of Marvel Studios.

Official announcements and logic tell us we’ll see the likes of Dr. Doom, Kang the Conqueror, Red Hulk, Galactus, and Magneto (though I’m still on Magneto overload thanks to Fox) and more. There were minor criticisms throughout the years that despite the brilliance of the MCU franchise, they had a little villain problem. Thanos ‘broke’ that criticism (no pun intended) and there have been some good ones besides the Mad Titan, but a good villain is just as important as the protagonist, perhaps more important. There is no doubt that the villains that grace future endeavors and the casting of such baddies are of utmost importance going forward.

Fortunately, the MCU universe is vast and there are still plenty of antagonists in the Marvel encyclopedia to choose from and here are some of the best dark villains, and some not-so-dark ones, that we need to see in the MCU for the next decade. Surely the list could be longer.

SURTUR

Surtur in the MCU

The great fire demon of Muspelheim was last seen in Thor Ragnarok fulfilling the prophecy that was his purpose. In the comics, Surtur was prominent in the Thor comics on and off for years and from a visual point of view, let’s be honest, there are far fewer things to see on screen as amazing as a giant fire demon.

More importantly, in the comic universe, Surtur was responsible for the destruction of Beta Ray Bill’s homeworld and the galaxy in which his planet existed. What if Surtur didn’t die in Ragnarok and, floating through the cosmos, he meets the homeworld of Beta Ray Bill. Considering that we hope to see Beta Ray Bill appear soon in the MCU, this connection, even part of the Beta Ray Bill origin story, could give Marvel a great excuse to use Surtur again and to a greater degree than we saw. in Thor Ragnarok.

ANTIVENENE

Anti Venom in the MCU

Without a doubt, the Spider-Man franchise is doing quite well, and we finally saw the only Sony spin-off movie with Tom Hardy’s Venom gracing theaters in 2018 and Venom’s other symbiote, Carnage, rearing its head in 2021 in the Venom sequel. , Let There Be Carnage. .

In the comics, Anti-Venom is a manifestation of Eddie Brock’s altered antibodies that bonded with his immune system. It’s all confusing, but Venom, Carnage, and Anti-Venom all have significant backstories in the comics and the connections these entities would provide in dangerous and complicated ways. Spider-Man villain (or other hero) in an upcoming Marvel saga.

PROTEUS

Proteus in the MCU

The psionic and reality-altering enemy of the X-Men and the son of Moira MacTaggert first appeared in Uncanny X-Men # 125 in September 1979. Proteus had only a few comic book appearances over the years. , but it was malevolent and through. Furthermore, his ability to possess others, with the byproduct of the person’s death after Proteus “exhausted” each person’s energies, would provide a dangerous story with deadly risks for any hero he faces. Additionally, Proteus’ reality-altering abilities would lead to a stunning visual experience in the cinematic experience similar to the Ancient of Fame from Doctor Strange, but in a more grounded and deadly way.

DINAMO CRIMSON

Crimson Dynamo in the MCU

Although apparently not original after Ironman, Marvel appears to be investigating various storylines in the upcoming Phase 4 and Phase 5, suggesting more properties related to technology created in the vein of Iron-Man and War Machine. The Disney + roster already includes Iron Wars starring Don Cheadle as ‘Rhodey’ and Dominique Thorn as Riri Williams, the 15-year-old billionaire inventor from MIT who will star in Ironheart.

Cheadle’s Iron Wars will likely loosely follow the 7-issue story from the comics in which much of Tony Stark’s technology falls into enemy hands. We may see Justin Hammer again and why shouldn’t we? To be sure, Hammer Industries has detailed schematics of the suit that Rhodey originally brought him in Iron Man 2. Technically, the original War Machine armor and upgrades are from ‘Hammer Tech’.

In the comics, Crimson Dynamo was connected to both Justin Hammer and the Iron Wars story. Interestingly, in the comics, the first Crimson Dynamo was Anton Vanko, again of Iron Man 2 fame, played by Mickey Rourke. We know that Vanko is still alive and the Crimson Dynamo’s connection to Russia could have intriguing implications for the MCU in the future, especially considering Russian connections to the MCU in the upcoming Black Widow and perhaps a future Colossus, as well as the Super Soldier show. … the possibilities are endless. What if we saw some of that ‘Dire Wraith’ technology (which means … alien) as seen in the most current incarnation of the Crimson Dynamo … it could be great!

PHALANX

Phalanx in the MCU

This may be the best time for Phalanx to appear in the MCU. It’s true that in the comics, the Phalanxes are a way of life beyond earth, but with forays into the cosmic commonplace, this isn’t far from possible. However, even if Marvel maintained a terrestrial origin, the Phalanx were basically sentient weapons (sounds familiar) with Borg-like technology that could turn sentient beings into techno-organic life forms. Even if we move away from the Borg parallel, the sentinel weapon version, Vision technology (probably collected over 5 years of study by SWORD), Iron Man technology, etc., may have a place in this terrifying precursor to the Sentinel Program that later it connects us to the X-Men.

THE KING OF THE SHADOW

The King of Shadows in the MCU

With the advent of WandaVision and the upcoming multiverse lines, there’s no question that alternate dimensions and demons are coming to the MCU. We know what Darkhold is and where it came from and there is no doubt that these other dimensions will be explored, as well as a darker side of the MCU in the form of Sons of Midnight, which stands for Ghost Rider and the various entities they haunt. his comics.

The King of Shadows has an evil appearance, but he has also played roles in the human world for an incredibly long amount of time, even working with Baron von Strucker in the 1940s. He fought against Professor Xavier and the X-Men. , but your connection doesn’t stop there. While ruling the Egyptian underworld as Amahl Farouk, a young thief named Ororo Monroe worked for him. We know her as the one that would become Storm of the X-Men. There are current rumors that Storm is already in the MCU and will have a connection to Wakanda. This could be a great link to introduce your character, as well as provide a powerful demonic antagonist to the other stories Marvel is exploring.

SUPER SCRULL

Great Skrull in the MCU

The connections are so strong here that I dare even list them. Although until now, the Skrulls have been characterized as an ally of Earth, it is against all sentient nature not to have variations within a population. With the upcoming ‘Secret Invasion’, there is no doubt that a remnant of the Skrulls or the entire race may change their minds and the allies will soon become a minority.

Also, with the arrival of the Fantastic Four coming soon, it seems the time has come to introduce the Super Skrull. First appearing in Fantastic Four # 18 in 1963, the Super Skrull first combined all of his powers, but he also claimed other abilities.

A warrior named Kl’rt was designed by his race to take revenge on the Fantastic Four after the Skrulls failed to conquer the land and were defeated by the Fantastic Four. There has been more than one Super Skrull and this dangerous warrior has crossed paths with the Avengers and Ms. Marvel in addition to the Fantastic Four.

TERRAX THE DOMESTIC

Terrax the Tamer in the MCU

Called Tyros of the planet Birj, Terrax became the most successful in the world by devouring the heralds of Galactus, leading him to consume more planets than any other. Terrax appeared to be the ideal herald for the first time, yet he had no loyalty to Galactus and often used his time as the cosmic-hilt herald to subdue planets and gain power for his own purpose.

His downfall came when he went to Manhattan and negotiated with the Fantastic Four to kill Galactus. Galactus, with little power, barely survived, but stripped Terrax of his power.

Interestingly, Terrax had superpowers before being empowered by cosmic power. His ability to control rocks was greatly enhanced and with his battle ax, he was perhaps the most formidable of Galactus’s heralds save for the Siler Surfer. Terrax would be excellent to introduce into the cosmic stories that come as the current herald of Galactus. He probably had the longest life, save for the Silver Surfer, of any other herald in comic book stories. If Marvel introduces the Silver Surfer (and they will), it would be best to present him already free of Galactus’ grasp so that we can have two heralds for the price of one.

JUGGERNAUT

Juggernaut in the MCU

We’ve already seen two versions in the movies so far and the most recent one was decent. However, in terms of power and indestructibility, very few forces can wreak the kind of havoc that Juggernaut can, and he usually outstrips Colossus most of the time.

Harassed by his father when he was young, Cain Marko (aka Juggernaut) was Charles Xavier’s stepbrother and was empowered by a demon that transformed Cain giving him superhuman strength and invulnerability. Despite the Juggernaut’s cinematic amazement, he was a complex character who was an anti-hero at times, making his peace with Charles Xavier at some points in his comedic career and joining the Thunderbolts at one point. Maybe too many horses on one team, but can you imagine Red Hulk, Abomination, and Juggernaut on the same team?

ARCADE

Arcade in the MCU

Our ground level superheroes need enemies too. Even though he doesn’t have superpowers so to speak, sometimes good writing and directing can give us dangerous but complicated villains for our Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Daredevil’s of the world.

Sometimes these resourceful, intelligent, and well-planned characters can be the perfect break from the devastating cosmic entities we’re used to.

His occupation in the Marvel Encyclopedia indicates ‘Assassin’ and ‘Playboy’. Quite a combination. Arcade (real name unknown) is a billionaire and an engineering genius. Tony Stark but a killer. It sounds intriguing. He designs ‘killer worlds’ and kills his victims in traps and mazes, he rarely earns money but enjoys killing.

Arcade has tangled with Spider-Man and the X-Men in the past, but his character could be modified to suit a variety of Marvel properties in the future.

As I mentioned at the beginning, in the hands of creative geniuses, the pantheon of baddies in the MCU is long and even the darkest and most ridiculous villains can turn into something great like Michael Keaton’s Vulture. Despite that, I think there are a few we need to see that would provide a reasonable and credible link to what we see happening in the MCU today.
