I’m sure there’s enough “who is (are) the next villain(s) for Spider-Man 4?” Blogs, posts, threads, essays and VVVVVVVlogs
So here’s mine
Been there, done that
Green Goblin & Goblin Jr., Venom, Sandman, Doc Ock.
Who is left?
Who could carry a full movie by themselves as a SOLO single villain?
Can any 1 villain left do this?
Maybe, but another major plot would need to be brought up…
example: Peter’s Identity being threatened, Death of Aunty May, or something significant, just don’t mention the M word.
Ok, so what bad guys are available? Assuming no returning villains, although I like the idea of doing Venom proper…that’s another topic
Carnage is a popular name. I’ll just say this about Carnage: No. seriously. Carnage is just crazy Venom. To do him right, despite the complete ripoff 90's Marvel feel is the rating, you;d have to make it rated R to have the body count this guy would have.
The Lizard – Good idea, can build on Peter’s one armed teacher who would be familiar face, but unless you have a major major out of mask plot, then the Lizard isn’t strong enough (IMO) to carry the full film….but
Kraven the Hunter – Add this crazy bastard to the mix and you have a great shot at a great Spider-Man movie.
Others that are just there, and though I believe the Lizard & Kraven would be my personal picks, others could work…
Next favorite idea would be the fish bowl headed FX dude, Mysterio!
But we have more “goon”, “fodder” types like Electro, the Rhino, Scorpian, Shocker, and the Vulture, Villains who are good but I can’t see strong enough by themselves, OR even being logical enough to team up.
You can’t throw two villains together for a good team up if the two villains are like poplar & logical opposites.
These two fucking shitheads
Couldn’t Electro Team up with the Shocker? Sure, but does it make sense? Scorpian & Rhino are animal based bad guys but why would they team up?
NOW, Scorpian could be cool because he’s tied to JJJ in his origin, and it would be cool to see JK play a bigger role.
OR would you go crazy and throw piles of shit at the fan, in the Sinister Six? Personally, it’s a good idea
PRO – lots of action and lots of costumed villains to see on the screen…
CON – No villain could get sufficient screen time.
See, there are pros and cons in the Sinister Six idea, and I’m sure there’s more then just 1?
How about the Jackal, which leads to Clones, which leads to…fuck that noise
Could an original villain work? Someone completely new to the Spider-Man world.
It'll be interesting when it's announced, either way I'm sure the movie will be ok to amazing, 1 and 2 were great, 3 (for me) was just ok...
