Spiderman has had one of the best rogues gallery displays on the big screen. In Just 6 live-action movies, we have seen 12 Spiderman villains and only one of them was done twice. Here all the villains of the Web-Slinger have been ranked.
Rhino – The Amazing Spiderman 2
Out of all the villains, the least effective villain in a Spiderman movie was none other than Rhino. The movie was hyped to have 3 villains but Rhino only showed up for a few seconds at the end of the movie and did not even have a fight!!
Harry Osborn/Green Goblin – The Amazing Spiderman 2
Even though the villain had a substantial role in the movie and his motivation was rightly explained, the portrayal turned out to pretty bad. The casting for the villain just did not work out for the audience.
Phineas Mason/Tinkerer – Spiderman: Homecoming
This was the first Spiderman villain that did not have a direct interaction and impact on our friendly neighborhood guy. He had a good arc in the movie is the producer of the Weapons used against Spidey.
Shocker(s) – Spiderman: Homecoming
There were two characters in the movie who played the Shocker. Jackson Brice was the first Shocker and was killed off by the Vulture himself before making any sort of impact. Then Herman Schultz takes up his rightful mantle from the comics and gives a Spiderman a run for his money.
Venom – Spiderman 3
Even though the take on the iconic Spiderman villain was criticized a lot by everyone, he was still an impactful villain in the movie. Given more screen time and a better casting might have made him the best villain till date.
Electro – The Amazing Spiderman 2
People were really excited when they got to know that Jamie Fox of going to play Electro in the Amazing Spiderman sequel. He had a good arc but still, due to less screen time, his character went underexplored.
Lizard – The Amazing Spiderman
Dr. Connors was a great villain as the Lizard in the Spiderman reboot. Even though he was not the best, but he was explored quite well in the movie and gave a great match-up to Spiderman.
Harry Osborn/Green Goblin – Spiderman 3
Not a villain for the entire movie, but his motivations were totally driven in the right direction according to his character and the character was being set up right from the beginning of the second movie in the series.
Sandman – Spiderman 3
Sam Raimi’s Spiderman 3 was not short of villains at all. The best villain of the movie was no doubt, Sandman. He was not explored up to his potential because of the number of villains in the movie, but still, he outshined other villains of the movie.
Vulture – Spiderman: Homecoming
The movie was a great adaptation of the webhead, and Michael Keaton playing his third winged character nailed his role. We all felt some sympathy for Adrian Toomes. Given the circumstances surrounding his rise as the Vulture, the audience has a great understanding of his motivations.
Norman Osborn/Green Goblin – Spiderman
The first ever Spiderman villain in the movies was one of the best ones till date. William Dafoe did a remarkable job in bringing the iconic villain to life and no one would be able to match what he has done with the character.
Doc. Octopus – Spiderman 2
The best Spiderman villain ever to be on the big screen would always be Doc. Ock. He was portrayed brilliantly by Alfred Molina, who showcases a distinct vulnerability that many superhero villains lack. This was by far one of the best Villains considering all the Superhero movies.
