Top 10 Villains We Want To See in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON opens today and brings with it one of the biggest villains in Marvel's library: Ultron. But, there are still countless classic bad guys that Marvel can bring into their Cinematic Universe that they have not even touched on yet. We know that Thanos looms big on the horizon, but here is our ranking of ten other great comic book foes that could be great additions to the MCU. If your favorite didn't make the list, feel free to add it to the talk backs below.

#10 - Taskmaster

An anti-hero and foil for Deadpool, Taskmaster got his start as a nemesis to The Avengers. Originally a sleeper agent sent by Nick Fury into the criminal underworld, Taskmaster would be a cool contrast to The Winter Soldier and represent a human opponent instead of a massive supernatural or extraterrestrial villain.

#9 - The Hood

A more recent addition to Marvel, The Hood witnessed Daredevil and Electro fight as a child before growing up to become The Godfather of all supervillians. He could make a nice addition to a Netflix series or even go toe to toe with Spider-man or any of The Avengers thanks to his connection to the Infinity Stones.

#8 - Super Skrull

While the Skrulls are more prominent in the Fantastic Four and X-Men comics, using a similar shape-shifting character who could inflitrate the Avengers would definitely make for a good movie. With how the MCU is developing, they could easily make this character a Super Chitauri instead.

#7 - Venom / Carnage

With Spider-man now a part of the MCU, there have to be plans for Venom and Carnage to run rampant through New York City. Spider-man has been able to fight both of them in the past, but seeing the symbiotes battle multiple superheroes would make for that much more of massive action sequence.

#6 - Kang The Conqueror

A time traveling nemesis to the X-Men and Fantastic Four, Kang the Conqueror has had numerous run-ins with the Avengers. We have yet to see a time traveler in the MCU and Kang's connections to various historical events could give us a unique setting for our contemporary set superhero films. Anyone want to see Iron Man travel to Ancient Egypt?

#5 - The Sinister Six

While I could have said just Green Goblin or Doctor Octopus in the MCU would have been cool, why not give The Avengers an entire team to contend with? It always made me wonder how a lone superhero could face multiple foes in superhero movies and win, but AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON shows that more than one nemesis makes for a lot more variety in the battle sequences. Bringing Spider-man into the MCU means bringing his baggage, so lets see the Avengers help him out.

#4 - Masters of Evil

Baron Zemo is set to appear in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR but he also is known in the comics for creating his own villain team, The Masters of Evil. I would love to see this squad go up against Captain America and Iron Man but I wouldn't have a problem seeing all of the Avengers take them on either.

#3 - Enchantress

Loki may get his own movie some day and that means we will have to see Enchantress. But, there are not a lot of female villains in any superhero movies these days, so take this Asgardian temptress and make her a good teammate or foil for Loki and Thor.

#2 - Thunderbolts

A team of reformed supervillains acting as heroes would make for a cool movie, but first they need to be villains. Having the Thunderbolts debut as opponents to the Avengers first would set them up for their own solo movie and potential clashes down the line.

#1 - Red Hulk

So Marvel may not have the confidence to make a solo Hulk film, but they could easily make him the opponent for an Avengers films. The Hulkbuster fight in AGE OF ULTRON shows that the big guy can hold his own against Iron Man, so make him take the next evolution and be the focal villain for an entire movie!

villains

Would love to see Red Hulk, but it has to be Ross turning into Red Hulk it can't be an evolution of Hulk, otherwise people are gonna hate it. As of the Skrulls I've been hearing a rumor of a deal with Fox and Marvel that involves The Fantastic 4, so they need to get the rights to use the skrulls as well, because Super Chitauri I'm sorry, but it would be a dumb idea

Sadly an unspiring list

Since I don't read comics, I don't know much about these guys, but it was kinda sad that the whole list gave me a kind of "meh" feel. So...if this is all that is left of the BEST villains we've not yet seen, I think the MCU ought to think about wrapping things up in the not too distant future.

Red Hulk? Seriously?

Anyway i will take a different approach here and say that with the coming of movies like GotG 2, Infinity War, Captain Marvel etc. I'd like to see more of the cosmic aspect of the MCU. We've seen a bit of what the Kree look lke in GotG but i'd like to see them more along with the other major players in the galaxy, like the Skrulls and the Shi'ar. And ofc some individual characters that come along like Mar-Vell, Super Skrull(already mentioned), Lilandra, the Shi'ar Imperial Guard, maybe

Can you buy the rights back Marvel? Pretty plz?

Red Hulk? Seriously?

Not the Leader, The Abomination, MODOK, Tyrannus, The Red King, Madman, The frigging Maestro? The character many angry Hulk fans call "Rulk"? Rulk is what happens when a writer isn't familiar with continuity, and does something like turn a character into a clone of another for no reason. Especially a 65 year old guy.

1. The Mandarin - not Trevor Slattery. If you watched the One-Shot "All Hail the King" it shows Trevor being broken out of prison by the real Mandarin, who is apparently not happy with Trevor's portrayal. My guess is Killian had heard of the Mandarin and didn't realize he was real. Killian used the myth of Mandarin and built up Slattery to fit the rumored description. But unbeknownst to either of them, the Mandarin is very real already.

2. The Leader - In "The Incredible Hulk", Samuel Sterns

2. The Leader - In "The Incredible Hulk", Samuel Sterns (aka Mr. Blue) is hit over the head and has Banner's blood drip on him. In the comic's Samuel Stern is the Hulk villain The Leader. This movie perfectly sets him up as a future villain.

That's two villains that are already in the MCU but currently don't have any announced plans of being used.

Also fun fact: in The Incredible Hulk, Martin Starr (Freaks and Geeks, Silicon Valley) cameos as a college student with pizza. In the novelization he is listed as Amadeus Cho, who in the comics is the son of Dr. Helen Cho's son. Dr. Helen Cho you all know as the Korean doctor in Age of Ultron. It would be really cool to keep Martin Starr in the MCU, he's a solid actor that plays nerd very well. Of course he's way too old to play Son, but he could probably be Cousin. It would be interesting to have a character from the Norton film interact with the Ruffalo character.

oh, and keep Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin. Yes, he would be playing both Trevor Slattery and the Mandarin.

I think there could be a really awesome story in there involving Red Hulk. They could do this standalone Hulk movie where we see the govt. now trying to capitalize on these new super being as some kind of weapon and have a new kind of arms race, with super powered beings instead of physical weapons. But tbh, I'd like to see a new Hulk movie tackle Planet Hulk and/or World War Hulk.

Would be down with that If they could make it good. The comic WWHulk was ludicrouse in the worst way possible. However I'm the one recomending a Seige film so I think It's expected Marvle will improve on bad comics when translating them to the big screen.

Aren't they already making a Sinister Six film? Or has that changed?

They were before Sony cut the deal with Marvel. With a new Spider-Man, very likely a new Sinister Six line-up, too.

That was Lorelei

in the comics she was the Enchantress's sister. I got confused and had to double check too.

Taskmaster would be a good villain for either an Ant Man / Wasp / Hawkeye movie or a Black Widow / Falcon / Winter Soldier movie.

My personal preference would begin with a really good take on Red Skull (coming back to the present) and Dr. Doom. Honestly there are not many villians outside of Spiderman and Daredevil I'm really itcing to see. I'd be most interested in them (somewhare down the line mind you) doing a Dark Avengers and then a Seig movie
