In a recent interview with director Sam Raimi posted on CHUD.com, FearNET asked whether or not a vampire might feature in the next Spider-Man movie, referring of course to the bloodsucking villain Morbius. Raimi’s response heavily implied that this could well be the case, and while there have been worse Spidey villains, we really hope that the Evil Dead director was joking.
Traditional supernatural foes – regardless of their origins – and the Marvel universe rarely mix, and certainly this has proven to be the case in Spider-Man comic books, so we can only imagine how poorly this particular mismatch might work on the big screen.
Morbius is, however, only one member of Peter Parker’s rogue gallery we’d rather not see in the fourth movie (or indeed the fifth, sixth, seventh and so on). Here’s a list of five more Spidey villains we don’t want to see when the highly-anticipated sequel rolls around in 2011.
He’s a gangster with a really hard head. To attack, he bends down and charges. His recent makeover was well overdue.
He can throw a boomerang really well. That’s it. Jesus.
This one is technically a DareDevil villain, but he has fought Spidey on more than one occasion. He has a suit that augments his strength slightly and also, crucially, makes him really tall.
Take all the stupid villains of Nineties comics, fuse them together with a bag of poo and you should get this bright orange waste of space. Imagine Iron Man, but on a budget.
The Big Wheel
He’s a big wheel.
