7 Spider-Man Villains We’d Like To See In The New Movie

7 of 8

2. Vulture

Pros: Maybe the perfect enemy for a young, inexperienced Spider-Man, as he was in his initial comics appearances, simply befuddling the rookie wall-crawler with his aerial ability. Having him as a villain would allow for some spectacular fight scenes, as we’ve seen with flying villains in prior Spidey flicks. The Vulture would offer a little more as a mastermind type than some of the others on this list, and I could see him throwing lesser criminals at Peter Parker to test him before joining the fray himself. Last but not least, while his comics costume might need some modifications to be ready for movie stardom, if you can’t make wings look cool, I don’t know what to tell you.

Cons: We won’t mince any words here: the original Vulture, Adrian Toomes is an old dude, and hard to take seriously as a physical threat to Spider-Man even with wings and a colorful outfit. Yes, that bald head completes the look of an actual vulture, but the public might not buy it. Other men to take over the Vulture identity proved to be pale imitations of the real thing and comic fans would be grumpy if they took Toomes’ place. I don’t often advocate going too far from the source material, but if the Vulture gets the call, it might be worth the writers coming up with a new spin on Toomes.
