10 Most Evil Spider-Man Villains Not Included in the MCU Yet
Tom Holland’s Spider-Man has already completed a whole trilogy in the six years after his debut in Captain America: Civil War, with his three flicks acting as his origin tale.
Although some may assume that his tale is now complete as a result of the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home, many fans remain hopeful that Holland will return in the future due to the numerous plots and enemies he may confront. There are certainly plenty interesting options given Spider-one Man’s of the most expansive and amazing rogues galleries, but fans would adore it if these ones got to debut first.

One of Spider-best Man’s rivals, similar to Batman, is also one of his best partnerships and cat-based. Felicia Hardy, nicknamed Black Cat, began as a villain (much to Batman’s Selina Kyle), but after meeting Spider-Man, she transformed into an anti-hero and is now one of his most powerful allies and most popular foes.
Felicia Hardy has already played her in live-action – though not in costume or action – in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Now that Holland’s Peter is on his own and has blithely ignored MJ and Ned, he needs new allies, and a new film focusing on her development would be a welcome sight for many fans.
After his brief stint as an Avenger, Holland’s Spider-Man is expected to return to his roots as a street-level vigilante. This could lead to him coming into contact with the Maggia, a crime syndicate based on the real-life Mafia, and in particular, Hammerhead. Hammerhead is best known for his cubic and nearly unbreakable skull, as hinted by his name.
Hammerhead is perhaps one of Spider-best Man’s and most unusual enemies among those yet to debut in the MCU. Many fans may recognize him as the main enemy of the video game’s DLCs in Marvel’s Spider-Man. His arrival in the MCU might pave the way for the ever-popular Spider-Man and Daredevil team-up.
The comics’ Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds and his significantly more devilish and nasty personality as the Hobgoblin were referenced in Spider-Man: No Way Home. While it seems odd that Batalon’s Ned would choose this terrible road, everything is possible when the multiverse is available to be explored. Furthermore, he is not the only person to adopt the moniker; Roderick Kingsley is the most well-known.
Of course, he resembles the Green Goblin disturbingly, however there are a few important distinctions, such as their sanity, motives, and compatibility with other villains. Following the popularity of Spider-Man: No Way Home, a new portrayal of the significantly greedier and more industrious Hobgoblin in the MCU would undoubtedly be exciting.
Kraven The Hunter
Although not in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one of Spider-most Man’s beloved and lasting villains is slated to make his live-action debut. Sergei Kravinoff aka Kraven the Hunter will be played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson in Sony’s Spider-Man Universe film Kraven the Hunter. He is one of the founding members of the Sinister Six and comes to hunt Spider-Man in order to establish his metal as the world’s top hunter.
His half-brother, the Chameleon, was Spider-first Man’s nemesis and is officially part of the MCU – though not in villainous form – in Spider-Man: Far From Home, played by Numan Acar. While Kraven’s tale is likely to remain in the SSU, nothing says he won’t resurface in the MCU again.
“Will Mephisto show up?” has been one of the most common questions surrounding practically every endeavor so far in Phase Four of the MCU. Because the film is based on the Spider-Man: One More Day comics, many fans expected him to appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Fortunately, Mephisto is a common foe of other heroes like as Ghost Rider and Doctor Strange. As a result, there are still plenty of prospects for Mephisto to play a significant role in the MCU’s future, but fans may have to wait a little longer.
Although Spider-Man has undoubtedly been the most recognizable hero in Marvel comics since his birth sixty years ago, some of his biggest foes, such as Martin Li aka Mister Negative, are relatively new. Due to his unique skill set and complex personality, he has grown in popularity since his debut in 2007.
Mister Negative gains access to the Darkforce and Lightforce, two incredibly strong dimensional forces that link him to Cloak and Dagger. Mister Positive, his brighter side, attempts to be a force for good, but his darker personality ultimately triumphs. Any story would want to set itself apart from Marvel’s Spider-Man, but he’d still make an excellent criminal underworld opponent.
With the Infinity Saga concluded, many fans are referring to the current phases of the MCU as the Multiverse Saga, however Marvel has yet to announce this. As a result, Morlun, an important and strong multiversal foe, has free reign. He and his vampire family, the Inheritors, are Spider-lifelong Man’s foes, tracking down all of his incarnations across all realities.
Morlun’s narrative adds a sense of mystique to Spider-universe Man’s while expanding the Spider-Verse, and he’d be an intriguing foe for Holland’s Spider-Man to face. Morlun appears to be more likely to appear in the next Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
Doctor Strange’s spell revealed several prominent Spider-Man villains as silhouettes as it ripped open access to the multiverse in the sky, including one villain who would have given Spider-Man a run for his money, Rhino. Aleksei Stysevich is a thug who has been genetically modified to give him superhuman strength and endurance.
Paul Giamatti’s Spider-Man was supposed to face off against Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man in the ill-fated The Amazing Spider-Man 3. While Rhino’s wits would certainly make for an exciting antagonist for action, a team-up with other villains, such as Mac Gargan aka Scorpion, who has yet to fully develop into his classic villainous self following his introduction in Spider-Man: Homecoming, might be a better fit.
While some of Spider-renowned Man’s foes have deep personal ties and history with Peter Parker, others are only interested in destroying the web-slinging hero for the thrill of the chase. With the financial help of J. Jonah Jameson, one such villain, Professor Spencer Smythe, set out to beat Spider-Man and formed the Spider-Slayers.
After Spider-Man was able to stop Smythe’s creations, his son, Alistair, decided to take up the cause as the Ultimate Spider-Slayer. The Smythes and their Spider-Slayers would certainly fit into future MCU Spider-Man films, especially since that Jameson is most likely attempting to publicly identify Spider-Man once more.
While many of Spider-foes Man’s have appeared in many films throughout the years, one major foe has yet to be seen in live-action. Miles Warren, dubbed the Jackal, is a genetics and cloning genius, but his fixation with Gwen Stacy pits him against Spider-Man to the point where he splices his genes with a jackal’s, gaining superhuman abilities.
The Clone Saga, in which the Jackal made clones of Peter Parker with Ben Reilly and Kane Parker – who subsequently became the Scarlet Spiders – is his most famous work. With a few tweaks to the plot, the Jackal could be a compelling and nuanced nemesis in any prospective MCU Spider-Man production, or even his own film in the style of Venom and Morbius.
