Top 10 Spider Man Villains Expected To Be In The Upcoming Spider Man Movies

Spider Man Villains

“For the Next Tony Stark, I trust You.”
So, Marvel fans!! Remember these lines written on the note inside the Edith box? Ahhh!! A legacy was passed from one genius to another. Will Peter be able to carry forward the trust that Tony had in him? Will he be able to defeat all the Spider Man Villains? We know many questions like these must be striking your head. Well, to get you the answers we referred to the source of the spiderman movies, “The Amazing Spider-Man” comics, and found all the answers for you.

Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to release its third Spiderman movie. The name of the Movie is Spiderman: No Way Home. The trailer of the movie has been released and the movie is in highlights because of the graphics leaked by the Animation team. Doctor Octopus, the leader of the sinister six has made its way to the present world. Does this mean that Sinister Six are back in the MCU universe? We have answered all these questions in the article below.

Spider-Man first appeared on the big screen in the year 2002. Well, to date three parts of the Spiderman movies have been released. The first part had three movies, the second had two and the third part, similar to the second has two movies to date and the third is going to be released soon. 

Spider Man Villains List Begins…..

If you rate the Marvel characters with the number of enemies they have in the whole Marvel Comic series then I bet Spiderman will be among the top three characters on the list. Don’t believe me? Check out the list of most dangerous Spider Man Villains given below.

1. Mysterio

Well, the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) fans may know him from Spider-Man: Away From Home (2019). But, the Marvel comic fans knew him from his first appearance in the comics in 1964. 

Although the appearance and the backstory of Mysterio are different in both the movie and the Marvel comic series. However, the only thing that remained unchanged in both the movie and the comic was Mysterio’s use of his brain. Unlike other villains in the Marvel universe, who are blessed with supernatural powers, Mysterio used his brain and technology to conquer the world.

In Spider-Man: Away From Home, Mysterio tricked Peter Parker into believing that he is from the other dimension (being a marvel fan you must be aware of the multi-dimensional Universe) and has come to this dimension to save the planet. Peter, being gullible, believed in him and handed him over Tony Stark’s legacy “Edith”. But, thanks to Peter Tingle, Spidey’s sixth sense saves the world again.

2. Dr. Curt Connors – The Lizard

Spider Man Villains - The Lizard

Well, it’s time to Witness the Spider v/s The Lizard. In 99.9 percent of cases, the lizard will eat the spider. But as we know things are different in the Marvel universe. 

Talking about Dr. Curt Connors, he was a scientist who was working hard on developing the limbs of humans using the DNA of reptiles. Sounds creepy!!!

Well, that is why people call scientists “Mad”. 

Peter Parker was a huge fan of Dr. Curt Connors and wanted to be his understudy. Dr. Connors agreed to mentor Peter. While working as the scientist’s understudy Spidey realized that Dr. Connors has tried the hybrid test on himself and has turned into a big reptile Lizard. This lizard is now on the mission to change humanity into a reptile hybrid.

Well, MCU fans have seen this “Humanoid Lizard” in The Amazing Spider-Man. But, we will tell you something that is not shown in the movie. The Lizard can control all the reptiles telepathically within 1 mile of its radius. Scary Right???.

Fighting Dr. Connors was one of the toughest jobs for Spiderman to do. Peter knew that Dr. Connors would never hurt humanity, it was the lizard’s DNA that was controlling his brain. This makes “The Lizard” one of the toughest Spider Man Villains of all time.

3. Sandman

Should we Fallen Avenger or one of the most wicked Spider Man Villains!!!

Sandman first appeared on the big screen in The Amazing Spider-Man. But, the appearance of the Sandman in the Spiderman stories can be traced back to 1963. In the comics and the early Spiderman’s animations, Sandman is shown as an evil who faces defeat again and again at the hands of Spiderman. After being continuously defeated by fantastic four and Spiderman, Sandman decides to join the “Avengers” force. But, as we say, old habits die hard. Sandman could not pick up a load of “Heroism” on his shoulder and got back on his evil ways. 

Well, coming to his appearances in the movies, Marcus was the person who killed Uncle Ben and was in jail for the crime. But, eventually, he found a way for the prison break and landed in the middle of the experiment. For a few seconds, the audience believed that justice was served to Peter. As it was shown that the machines turned Marcus into the sand. But, things aren’t this easy when it comes to the marvel stories. The sand experiment on Marcus changed him into the sandman.

However, at the end of the movie, it was shown that Marcus convinced Peter (SpiderMan) that he accidentally shot Uncle Ben and Peter forgives him.

4. Electro

Spider Man Villains - Electro

Electro is one of the earliest Spider Man Villains and most recurring Spider Man Villians. Although this electric man was seen only once in the Spiderman movie. But, if we talk about Marvel Comics, Spiderman has fought this villain like a hundred times. Electro was presented to the audience for the first time in 1964. 

A brief history about Electro:
One Lineman in an electric company Max Dillon was left by her wife for being less ambitious in life. He got electrocuted while changing the levers and got transformed into “Electro”. After getting the Superhuman electric powers, Dillon decided to use them for making money and getting famous.

In the Amazing Spiderman Electro has a similar story, he was working as a lineman in an Electric company, having the most important job. But, barely any person knows his name. So, he craves recognition. 

One day while working in the power plant a mishap happens and he gets electrocuted. Luckily, this did not end his life, rather Electro-man was born. Now, he had only one ambition in his life to make everyone aware of his presence. But, the path he chose for this was not correct. He started destroying the city with his powers. The scene where Spiderman recognizes Max Dillon in Electro-man is quite emotional.

5. Green Goblin I – Norman Osborne

“The First Spiderman Villain on the Big Screen”

If you ask who is the first Spiderman’s villain on the big screen then, Green Goblin is the name. He was the first villain that appeared in the cinematic view of the Spiderman movie. Green Goblin was the only villain in Spiderman history who has affected Peter Parker’s family as well as his love life. 

Green Goblin can be seen in the first and the third sequel of the Amazing Spider-Man movie. Well, one thing to note here is that the green goblins in both of the movies are different. 

Let us tell you who were the two green goblins in the Spiderman movies.

Norman Osborne, the founder of the Oscorp Company is suffering from some psychological disorder. He sees himself as a villain in the mirror, as a result, the business tycoon started using his technology and money for wrong deeds. He was the Villain in Spiderman 1. 

Though he was the villain, killing Green Goblin was never Spidey’s intention. It was an accident. Green Goblin wanted to kill Spider man with the sharp front of his glider, but, thanks to Peter Tingle (The Spidey’s sixth sense), he dodged the glider which killed Norman Osborne.

6. Green Goblin II – Harry Osborne

You must have heard the saying, “It’s scary to think that your enemy was once your Best Friend” because no one knows your weak points better than your best friend. 

You must be wondering why I quoted these lines here. Well, the next villain in the list of the Spider man Villains is Peter’s best friend, “Harry Osborne”. For those who have only watched Spiderman 1 and Spider Man 2. This is a big spoiler. It’s Friend v/s Friend waiting for you in the next movie.

Harry knew that Spider-Man killed his father and his hatred for him is genuine. Harry was seen asking Peter about Spiderman’s whereabouts. No, he wasn’t aware that Peter is Spiderman. He asks him because Peter clicks the Spiderman pictures for the newspaper for the living. This made Harry doubt that Peter is hiding Spiderman from him.

Later in the movie, Harry Osborne discovers his father’s hidden laboratory and comes across the fact that Peter is the spiderman. He did not confront him directly, instead, he started attracting Peter’s love interest towards himself. Towards the end of the movie, you can see both the friends fighting with each other and somehow Peter was able to convince Harry that his father was killed in the accident.

7. Doctor Octopus

A perfect example of Technology can be Harmful as well!!!

Dr. Otto Octavious is a genius scientist who has got the resources to conduct his experiments on the traditions from a special type of source. Dr. Octavious developed a special type of hand that he could use to control the radiation from the source without even touching it. 

Peter was an extraordinary child in high school. Somehow he got the chance to visit the laboratory to witness the experiment. But, without any purpose, the radiation got out of control and the evil scientist Doctor Octopus was born. 

Doctor Octopus uses his technological hands to move around and defecting a genius who knows the perfect use of technology and radiation was quite a difficult job for Spiderman. For me, Doctor Octopus was one of the most difficult Spider Man Villains to defeat.

Doctor Octopus is the leader of the Sinister Six (Six Spider Man Villains in the Spiderman movies). Well, the Trailer of Spider-Man No Way Home also revealed the presence of Dr. Octopus in the movie.

8. Venom

A Superhero Or Anti-Hero?

If you know Venom from the 2018’s Venom movie, then you must be surprised to know that Venom was one of the first Spider man villains that appeared on the big screen. Venom was first seen on the big screen in the year 2007 in Spiderman 3.

Venom is a Marvel character that can be seen in the marvel comics. 

Venom came as the alien suit in the Spiderman movie that got stuck to Peter’s body and started controlling his head. Sooner, Peter realized this and found a way out to get rid of the Venom Suit.

We used to call him the Black Spiderman in childhood. If you remember.

Well, as Peter scraps the Venom suit out of his body. A news reporter who is Peter’s rival gets access to it and he becomes the first person to be the Venom. Although his intentions were not to hurt Peter physically the Venom suit controls his brain and he wanted to destroy him.

Fighting the venom was not an easier task, the alien suit had acquired the power of Spiderman while acting as the parasite on him, plus he had his alien powers. Although it wasn’t easy. Spidey found that he cannot bear high pitch sounds so he used this against him to defeat him.

9. Vulture

Adrian Toome is an inventor who created mechanical wings that allows him to fly like a vulture and grants him great strength. The vulture did not appear in the first two series of the Spiderman movies. But, fans were obliged to see Vulture in Spiderman: Homecoming.

Vulture is one of those Spider Man villains who know the real identity of Spiderman. In Spiderman: Homecoming, Vulture is shown to be Spidey’s Love interest’s father. Eventually, both of them recognize each other and have combat. The best part about the combat was Peter Parker used his ordinary self-made suit for the fight. Peter defeated the vulture with his capabilities and strength and this attracted Tony Stark towards him. 

10. Chameleon

He is also one of those Spider Man Villains who knows his real identity and tries to use Peter’s family as his weakness. He developed the android images of Peter’s parents to trick Spiderman. The audience is eagerly waiting to see the Chameleon on the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) screen.
