With the release of Endgame and the spoiler ban officially lifted, Marvel Studios is in full swing to promote Spider-Man: Far From Home, the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming that brings back Tom Holland as the titular superhero who will be facing a new range of villains. Spider-Man: Far From Home is going to bring a set of villains, some of whom have never ever made a live-action appearance in the Bog Screens. So a lot of uncertainty may be riding on Far From Home’s shoulders. The list of villains is lengthy but at least half of them are confirmed to be making an appearance. The rest of them are actually characters from the original movie that are most probably going to be there or at least passively mentioned in the movie. But there is also a high chance that they are going to make their mark in Far From Home.
Far From Home will see how the Post Endgame world is coping with the loss of Iron Man and the void left by a lot of iconic superheroes who died or retired from the Avengers. Spider-Man will be fighting villains that hail from a parallel universe but will he be able to come up to the challenge after the world is in such a weakened state right after the fight with Thanos in Endgame sapped out the last of their strength? These villans will be the acid test for Spider-Man, who will have to pull up a trick or two out of his sleeves to even the odds. Presenting – All Villains confirmed and rumoured to appear in Spider-Man: Far From Home!!
This one is a no brainer. Mysterio is one of the most classic Spider-Man villains in Marvel Comics. He made his first official comic book debut in The Amazing Spider-Man #13 where he tried to frame Spider-Man for crimes he did not commit and tried to garner fame and wealth by making it look like he is the champion that the city needs to defeat the evil Spider-Man. Quentin Beck is a master illusion artist and is extremely skills in using top-notch special effects to fool anyone. In fact, he has used his world-class skills in simulating special effects to fool an entire city into believing that they are being invaded by aliens. He is THAT talented. The movie will show Mysterio as a ‘superhero’ from another universe that is trying to stop the Elementals but we all know that is all just a ruse.
Rumours of Hydro-Man being a part of Spider-Man: Far From Home started to appear after Tom Holland shared a video of him being on the Venice set of the movie where his stunt double was being struck down by a giant wave of water in the background. After Producer Eric Carroll confirmed that the water-based Elemental was inspired by Hydro-Man, the rumours turned out to be true. Hydra-Man’s real name is Morris Bench. He was once a United States Sailor working aboard a ship that was experimenting on a new age generator. After Spider-Man accidentally knocks Morris into the sea, the generator’s radiation transforms his body into a form of living water. Hydro-Man has since blamed Spider-Man for his predicament.
The Far From Home trailer also confirmed the theory that the fire elemental was inspired by Molten Man, a forgotten villain from Spider-Man’s Rogues’ Gallery. Molten Man’s actual name is Mark Raxton, and he is the step-brother of Liz Allen, one of Peter Parker’s past romantic interest. Raxton was an ordinary New Yorker until his body was exposed to deadly levels of alien radiation. His body transformed into a slug of molten rock and he gained the ability to absorb and project massive amounts of heat and radiation. The Liz Allen connection may not be explored since the Fire Elemental is only inspired by Molten Man but is not a direct replica of him.
Sandman is a villain that has already made his live-action debut in Spider-Man 3, the Sam Raimi directorial featuring Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man. This time though, the villain will be used in the form of the Earth elemental, a parallel universe entity that has found its way to the MCU after the Infinity Gauntlet Snap tore a hole in the space-time continuum. This makes him the first ever villain to be reused by Marvel. William Baker was a down on his luck criminal when he came into contact with irradiated sand left behind after a nuclear explosion test. He soon gained the ability to turn into and control sand particles. After starting out as a villain, Baker joined the Avengers and became a superhero. Don’t expect that to happen in Far From Home though.
Rumours of the Chameleon being a part of Far From Home stormed the internet after it was revealed that Numan Acar will be cast as a character called “Dimitri” in the movie. but fans were quick to realize that Numan Acar’s Dimitri is actually Dmitri Smerdyakov aka Chameleon, the shape-shifting terrorist that has always been a thorn on Spider-Man’s side in the comic book universe. The Chameleon is smart as hell and has even managed to kidnap Peter Parker and replace him as his doppelganger on occasions. He still does not know who Peter Parker really is though. The movie is supposedly casting Acar’s character as someone who is closely tied to Nick Fury’s past as the Director of Shield. Maybe the Chameleon is actually a Rogue Shield operative?
Spider-Man: Homecoming had one of the best villains in the entire MCU. Michael Keaton played the Vulture, who used a wing harness suit and stole alien technology to support his crew and their families. Keaton was defeated by Spider-Man who would then be responsible for sending him to a high-security prison. Last we heard, Keaton was not going to appear in the movie as claimed by Jon Watts, director of Far From Home. But we all know how the MCU directors never tend to walk their talk.
The end scene of Homecoming saw Michael Mando reveal him to be the MCU’s version of the Scorpion. This version of the Scorpion was inspired by the Ultimates Universe. Mac Gargan was a violent murderer, mob boss, and sociopath that found his way to the Scorpion suit and became a supervillain that fought Miles Morales’ version of Spider-Man. It was recently revealed that Michael Mando was not going to be a part of the sequel. And it looks like it is going to stay that way. We have to wait some more to see the Scorpion sting the Spider in the MCU.
Played by Donald Glover, the character known as Aaron Davis is actually the uncle of Miles Morales and a known criminal. In the supervillain circle, Davis is more popularly known as the Prowler. He is a thief who uses advanced technology to steal priceless pieces of art and technology to fund his criminal empire. The Prowler is not going to be found lurking in the new Spider-Man movie as confirmed by onstage visits to the sets of Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Shocker was played by Bokeem Woodbine in the Spider-Man: Homecoming movie. Herman Schultz is a small-time criminal that gains access to advanced vibration technology and then decides to become a super villain called the Shocker. The Shocker was smart enough to even catch Spider-Man off guard in the first movie. Since Schultz is a small-time criminal and the sequel is taking place in another continent, do not expect the Shocker to make a shocking return in Far From Home.
The Tinkerer has a genius level intellect that he uses to create technology that can give anybody with enough money to gain superpowers. The Tinkerer is known to be a friend as well as a foe to Spider-Man. He once allied himself with Mysterio and faked an entire city-wide invasion by aliens. Michael Chernus played the Tinkerer in the first Spider-Man movie in the MCU. He will not be coming back to reprise his role again.
