The problem with reboots in superhero films is that for certain heroes, there are villains you expect/want to see. But, after so many reboots, you’d rather new villains be shown off. For Spider-Man, the about-to-be-released Homecoming film features a new Spider-Man sure, but it also features The Vulture, a character who has never been seen in live-action.
In an interview with the Toronto Sun, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige states that the trend of “never-used-before” villains will continue:
“We are excited to use characters that you haven’t seen before on screen. So that narrows it down a little bit in terms of who will pop up next,” Feige said. “Spider-Man has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to villains and there are a lot that haven’t been touched upon. It’s those that we will be looking at first.”
Believe it or not, a lot of fans are actually ok with this. After all, we’ve seen multiple forms of Green Goblin, and have had versions of Doctor Octopus, Sandman, Venom, Lizard, Electro, and more. Spider-Man does have one of the deepest villain rosters out there, so let the movies show them off! Many fans are hoping for villains like Mysterio and Kraven the Hunter to appear next. We’ll just have to wait and see who arrives next.
