5 Villains We Need To See In The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Mephisto Galactus Marvel Cinematic Universe

With all the hype surrounding next summer’s Avengers: Infinity War and finally getting to see Thanos in all his glory, we felt the need to discuss a few villains not yet seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With a giant set of characters to choose from, we’re sure Disney isn’t exactly struggling to find ways to use a lot of them.

Here are 5 that we’d really like to see appear in the MCU (TV included) at some point in the future – though some depend on Marvel getting the movie/TV rights back for them:

5. Tombstone

Tombstone Marvel Spider-Man
For everyone familiar with this character, you already know how dangerous he is in the books and his partnerships with some important villains, but in case you don’t know lets do a little recap of Lonnie Lincoln.

Lonnie Lincoln is a hitman who filed his teeth and nails to look like a vampire to intimidate his enemies and make it easier to kill them. He worked with the Kingpin and even tried to kill the Hobgoblin.

The reason it would be rad to see him on the big screen is because it would just add on to Daredevil’s Netflix series and bring in another interesting character to be around Kingpin and face off with Daredevil. Could also be a fresh new villain for the Spider-Man franchise instead of recycling ones that have already been used.

4.Mephisto

Mephisto Marvel
With this evil character who has had run ins with many heroes in the Marvel Universe, he is a pretty universal character and could be used for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sure, we saw him in 2007’s Ghost Rider and 2011’s Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (sort of), but those movies weren’t that great.

According to Marvel Wiki:

Mephisto, sometimes using the name Mephistopheles or even Satan (among many others) is a powerful demonic super-villain from Marvel comics and is one of several such demons that feed off humanity’s belief in The Devil so as to masquerade as Satan himself. In reality, however, Mephisto’s origin seems to lie with the primordial Elder-Gods that ruled earth before being banished by Atum the God-Eater, the exact nature of this origin varies with story to story but tends to vary between the old gods becoming corrupt or the demons being formed by the already plentiful corruption found in the Elder-Gods.

The best thing that would suit him well and would be awesome to see? A Johnny Blaze Ghost Rider series on Netflix. The villain has actually been rumored to make an MCU appearance at some point soon, lets see if he pops up any time soon!

3.Mister Sinister

Mister Sinister Marvel
Though rumored to be a villain in next summer’s Deadpool 2, he still isn’t confirmed as the villain yet. But with the story of Cable being conceived to be his personal hitman, we can only assume he will have some sort of tie in with the upcoming film. For anyone not entirely familiar with Nathan Essex, you should definitely hop into a few of the X-Men story lines with him.

Super powerful with mind control abilities and with him being the villain in the Deadpool video game released a few years ago, we can only hope to see him next summer on the big screen and with the rumors that FOX could be sold, we could potentially have him in the MCU.

2. Beyonder

Beyonder Marvel Comics
The main and only reason for wanting to see him on the big screen is for the Secret Wars story line to be told in a series of films. But, this will only ever be possible if Marvel can get ALL their rights back to all the characters.

Per Wikipedia:

The Beyonder is a fictional cosmic entity appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by writer Jim Shooter and artist Mike Zeck, the Beyonder first appeared in Secret Wars #1 (May 1984) as an unseen, nearly omnipotent being who kidnapped the heroes and villains of the Marvel Universe and had them do battle on another planet called Battleworld. He later appeared in a more antagonistic role in the 1985 sequel Secret Wars II, in which he took human form, and threatened to destroy the Marvel multiverse.

To see all of our favorite heroes and bad guys battling on a far away planet would be amazing. Also it would be kind of cool to see that symbiote get on Peter Parker for the first time.

1. The Real Galactus

Galactus Marvel
Galactus can be used for so many different stories and in so many different contexts. I would personally love to see Fantastic Four and Avengers take him on with the Silver Surfer next to them. I know there was once an attempt to put Galactus in a Fantastic Four film, but we just won’t discuss how that went down. I want to see him as something more than just a “mist” in a Fox reboot of a failed franchise.

Per Marvel Wiki:

Galactus (real name: Galan) is a godlike supervillain from the Marvel universe, who although not exactly malevolent is nevertheless a dangerous individual who requires nothing short of entire worlds to hold off his eternal hunger and is also linked in such a way to the Marvel universe, but when he died the entire Marvel universe will end.. this makes Galactus somewhat unique in the fact he is both an immensely destructive force yet also necessary for the existence of the universe. He is considered to be the arch-enemy (and sometimes as ally) of the Silver Surfer being his main villain and the Fantastic Four serving as a main villain alongside Doctor Doom.

Give it back to Marvel and lets see Galactus come to destroy the earth!

These are just a few good choices but hopefully as the MCU continues to develop over the next 5 years we can start seeing some new villains and see them keep a few around without killing them off after ever solo film.

Father of a wonderful son, a full time tattoo artist, a marvel comics collector/lover and a wrestling fan. I also have a general love for film and pop culture. I was first introduced to marvel comics from the 90’s X-men cartoon and fell in love with wolverine. From there, I grew into a huge fan and started collecting comics at a young age. When I got a little older, I started watching WWE in the Attitude Era, quit following it after, but eventually got back into it. I enjoy going to the theater and seeing new films as much as possible, and keeping up with popular television shows.
