Ranked! Marvel Villains We Could (And Should) See Come Back Around in Phase 4

Marvel Studios isn’t exactly known for doing villains well. This isn’t to say that Ant-Man’s Yellowjacket or Guardians of the Galaxy’s Ronan are bad, they’re just exactly what you’d expect: one-dimensional, well, bad guys. Okay, so they’re bad. Loki, Thanos, and Killmonger aside, rarely do Marvel audiences get an adversary on par with Heath Ledger’s Joker.

If you’ve been watching Disney+’s Loki then you know the Marvel Cinematic Universe has officially embraced the idea of the multiverse—which means any and every character that you’ve ever seen in a Marvel movie could come back around in Phase 4; including Spider-Man villains from the Sony franchise like Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe) and Doc Ock (Alfred Molina). That said, pretty much any MCU villain could return but we’re going to rank the ones that make sense from a narrative standpoint (and that haven’t already been confirmed. Ex. Abomination).
