Apparently we might get a Doctor Doom film. If it follows the comic book origin, it might actually be good. I say this despite doubting the average movie-goer cares about Doctor Doom at all and yet has had him crammed down his or her throat three times already.

What about Thanos? Would the early life of Thanos make for a film you'd like to see?

How about Kang the Conqueror?


My premise is - the villain's childhood has to matter. Some guy who was hit by gamma rays and suddenly became a villain (like the Leader or the Abomination) couldn't really sustain a full-length film solo. The villain's antagonist (for example, the Hulk) would have to be the star.

The Mandarin would be great but Marvel currently won't do it. Nevertheless, his childhood matters, so I'll put him on the list.

The Kingpin? Nah, if Marvel really wanted to do it, they would simply dedicate a couple episodes of the Daredevil Netflix program to it.

Any other ideas? Do any of the above sound good to you?

It was one of the unrealised projects of Sony before Spider-Man Homecoming.

I don't think that the project is currently possible but I think that it would be fun if it would happen in the MCU. It is implied at the end of Spider-Man Homecoming that Mac Gargan, who is in jail, has friends on the outside who want to join forces to kill Spider-Man.

I see it as a cross between Ocean's 11, Reservoir Dogs & Usual Suspects.

In my mind, a possible casting would be :

- Doctor Octopus
Mark Hamill (since he likes so much the idea \:\-\) )

- Mysterio
Bruce Campbell (it was one of the rumors for Sam Raimi's cancelled Spider-Man 4 ... so, why not make it real ?)

- Vulture
Michael Keaton (from Spider-Man Homecoming)

- Shocker
Bokeem Woodbine (from Spider-Man Homecoming)

- Scorpion
Michael Mando (from Spider-Man Homecoming)

- The 6th member
I still hesitate about the choice of the villain.
Perhaps, Chameleon ?
It would be fun if he is impersonated by multiple actors !
Perhaps, Michael Sheen among them ?
