The Marvel Netflix series have been an overwhelming success for Marvel Studios, reaching critical acclaim for its show’s storytelling, acting, cinematography, themes and tone. “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist” have all been massive financial successes for both Netflix and Marvel. Unlike the Marvel movies, the Netflix series have received much praise for their utilization of their villains. Whether it’s characters like the Kingpin or the Purple Man, these shows have taken particular care of its villains.
So which villains would we like to see pop up in these shows going forward? Which villains would we want to see Marvel Studios insert into one of their own shows next? Here are 15 villains that we want to see pop up in the future in Marvel’s Netflix series. These characters are generally villains of the heroes we have already established, with a few surprises.
15. WRECKING CREW
The Wrecking Crew first debuted, interestingly enough, on the pages of “The Defenders.” Created by Len Wein and Sal Buscema in 1974, the Wrecking Crew debuted in “The Defenders” #17. The Wrecking Crew have been utilized many number of ways, taking on the Defenders, the Avengers, Thor and street-level vigilantes like Daredevil and Iron Fist. They are a group of construction-themed villains who use weapons you might see in a construction yard.
Perhaps too campy for the serious and grounded atmosphere that Marvel has been trying to establish for their Netflix series, the Wrecking Crew could be used for honestly any of the Netflix series. They would be fitting antagonists for Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, the Defenders, Punisher, or even someone else. Their range and utility make them a pretty good option to go to if you need a villain for any of these series. The Wrecking Crew can be utilized to take on massive threats or small, and can fit any niche.
