Our Top 3: Marvel Villains

Chelsea here, kicking off our top three Marvel Villains/Villainess!

#3 The Green Goblin, Mr. Norman Osborn is most commonly associated with the web slinging hero Spiderman. Osborn’s son, Harry, is as we know Peter Parkers best friend. GreenGoblinDafoeThis is a complicated story line but to simplify it… Norman injects himself with a serum he created and makes himself The Green Goblin. Spiderman accidently kills Norman and Harry seeks revenge on the vigilante. Unaware the Parker is the masked hero, he goes after his best friend with hopes to avenge his fathers death. I love the father, son story. It’s endearing and wacky all at the same time.

#2 is going to Magneto. I just have an obsession for the X-Men. All of them intrigue me, good and bad. Magneto who was a victim of the Holocaust, witnessing is own mother being 406px-Magneto_430murdered. Talk about some baggage to hold on to. No wonder he is so vengeful of non mutants. Let’s talk about his powers though, since I didn’t do that with The Green Goblin. HE CONTROLS ALL THINGS METAL. There are so many things in this world he has the advantage on. There was a scene in X-Men First class where Magneto rips out a mans golden tooth. Like, talk about a terribly torturous technique. And a tongue twister… unintended.

#1 has to be an mutant as well, so who is she? Ahhhh… It’s a SHE! Mystique and all of her many different forms. While her normal blue self is beautiful in her own way, I could never kjhkjhget sick of stealing some one else’s face. It’s like dressing up for Halloween all the time! But let’s talk about the true advantages of her mutants self. She can literally take any place, of any person, in the entire world. Her voice also changes to whomever she has transformed into, making it virtually impossible to tell if she is in fact the actual person. In all of the movies you see her embody several different people, and important ones at that, and get away with it. On top of all that, she can kiss some butt. I would not want to go up against her in hand to hand combat.

 

 

 

 

My turn now! Magneto at #2? Tisk, tisk.

#3 Ultron. I’m going with Ultron because he is one of the more fascinating villains in the Marvel universe. Created by scientist Hank Pym in an ill attempt to recreate originalartificial intelligence, Ultron sprung to life in a ruthless way by lashing out and attacking the one that gave him life. There are many reasons as to why he makes the top 3; he has no regard for human life, he has no compassionate side, and the most frustrating part to Ultron is he cannot be put out of his misery. Even if the Avengers defeat him he has the ability of finding refuge in surrounding computers and other technology. When he resurfaces he is always that much tougher to defeat, as he is constantly “upgrading” himself. The star villain of the approaching Avengers blockbuster locks down the trifecta.

#2 The Sinister Six. Yes, I understand that each of these villains Spiderman has handled individually with ease. It is the fact that they come together with only one goal in mind; defeat Spiderman. Their strength is in numbers and they each bring something new to the table. Vulture has his high-flying antics and wisdom. Lizard has super human strength and agility, did I mention that he was a genius? Electro has the power to wield, and manipulate all things electric. Rhino is just a wrecking ball that cannot be stopped. Mysterio has the whole escape and trickery thing down. Kraven the Hunter is a brilliant strategist and also has a distinct savagery about his motives. Couple all of that together and you have one balanced stable that is to be reckoned with,untitled

 

#1 Last but not least, the father of all things evil; Doctor Doom. Doom is a special villain because, like Xavier and Magneto, he used to be friends with his protagonist Reed Richards. His entire body is armored by an indestructible metal so he isn’t3083489-comic+scan+376

exactly vulnerable and can definitely pack a punch. His lust for power is what drives Doom, constantly striving for world domination. If all of this isn’t enough to have support of the Fantastic 4’s worse enemy, then let me throw one more fact at you. Victor Von Doom is the inspiration for arguably the greatest cinematic villain of all time; Darth Vader. Boom.

 

 

 

 

 

So, there it is. Let us know what you think and give us some ideas for our next posts!

See ya, BYE! :)

Sinister Six Casting

Dylan, has a slight obsession with the concept of The Sinister Six. So to entertain this thought we are going to share who we think should play each villain.

Rather than following the comic book depictions of the Sinister Six, we are going to contribute three new characters to the existing villains in the current Amazing Spiderman films.

The Lizard:

Who was played by Rhys Ifans in The Amazing Spiderman with Andrew Garfield, would return if the character joined the rhys-ifans-on-the-amazing-spider-man-s-the-lizard-106329-470-75sinister six. It wouldn’t make any sense to recast the character and honestly it would just confuse people. But you are wondering, why would The Lizard come back at all? Well, Curt Connors is the only person who knows Peter Parkers true identity in this movies world and that could be something pivotal to the plot. Also Connors has insight into the untimely death of Parkers parents. I think that gives him plenty of reason to come back and kill off the vigilante but he knows he can’t do it alone, therefor assembling the Sinister Six. spiderman-lizard-from-movieRecruiting Electro and Rhino along the way is a given because they are appearing in the next Amazing Spiderman. We can assume there will be unfinished business with those two as well. So let’s delve into Electro…

Electro: spider-man-2-electro

We don’t know much about the plot of the new spidey movie coming out, other than tasm-2-spider-man-jamie-foxxElectro will be played by Jamie Foxx and Rhino by Paul Giamatti. We don’t know how Electro will be transformed into his villainess form, let alone any motive he would have towards targeting Spiderman. So we are just going to leave that at that. While there was some fuss about how they would make Electro’s costume not incredibly tacky, once these photos were leaked there was nothing but positive feed back. We are personally thrilled to see Foxx’s performance and think the whole movie is going to be mind blowing. You can see these two photos where Foxx is being depicted as an elder man, who’s lacking self confidence. There is a true transformation once his powers are received. He now has this “I hate the world!” look going for him and it’s terrifyingly perfect for the character.

Rhino:

The same goes for Giamatti, who is portraying a really bad A looking Rhino. We don’t know much about this movie at all. Sony has done a really great job of keeping it really professional and secret. Amazing+Spider-Man+Rhino+ChargingSome might find that annoying but I think it is truly bringing tons of anticipations. As far as The Rhino and Electro go, we would hope they will return with The Sinister Six, creating one of the most complex plots of comic movie history.

Kraven The Hunter:Kraven-the-Hunter

Gerard Butler is our pick for the Russian hunter, with particular taste for our hero Spiderman. While Butler fits the tall, dark and handsome persona of The Hunter, he rounds it all off with his ability to grow a barbaric type beard and his dark mane. We hope to see Kraven as a villain in The Six simply because of his ruthlessness and his specific desire to catch our web slinger as his ultimate game.

 

 

 

 

Mysterio:

In NBC’s television drama, Heroes,  Zachary Quinto exhibits elusive and eery qualities as the series antagonist. We most commonly associate Quinto with his more popular role of Spack in Star Trek, where he is also slightly odd MV5BMTQ3MjEzOTU4MV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMjMwMTY0Mg@@__V1__SX640_SY828_and a little comical. Mysterio is a tortured man, who decides to take havoc on the city for no reason. His knowledge of special effects is what makes it possible for him to create these elaborate high-jacks, where he ultimately blames them on other people. Thus making him so mysterious. So with Quinto’s abilty to already portray a mysterious character we see him fit to fill the 5Mysteriofish bowl.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vulture:

John Malkovich was originally casted as The Vulture in the fourth installment of Tobey McQuire’s Spiderman series. But after the third spider-man-4-vultureimagesCAR4TV9Vmovie was a complete disaster, the fourth failed to exist. So we feel it’s only fitting that if The Vulture is to return, Malkovich should get his chance to show us his depiction of the decrepit man, seeking youth again. We have already John play the role of a villain in a movie, ex. The Knock Around Guys, so we know he has the potential. But ultimately we just want to see Malkovich hooked up to harness’s floating across The Big Apple.
