Even if you’re not a comic book buff, chances are you’ll know all about the Osborn family. They have, after all, appeared in both Sam Raimi’s trilogy and The Amazing Spider-Man movies with three iterations of the Green Goblin in total (the last two barely count, but Harry did indeed suit up as the Goblin even if his costume choices were abysmal).
In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Peter Parker squares off with The Vulture, but what could be next for the youngster? We asked Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige exactly that and he made it clear that they and Sony currently have their sights set on brand new villains.
“We haven’t talked about that. What’s fun about this is it’s the first time Spider-Man is in the MCU. And the first time he’s played by an actor who is the age, essentially, Spidey was in the comics for so long. And, as Michael Keaton does with the Vulture, we get to explore villains we haven’t seen before. Spidey has an amazing rogues gallery, so at some point I think it might be interesting to revisit some of the characters we’ve seen in films before, but right now, we think there are a lot of new ones we haven’t played with yet.”
That makes sense and talking of new characters in the MCU, Feige went on to reveal that one character they’ve mulled over introducing somewhere down the line is Captain Britain!
“We have discussed it. There are a lot of actors that come in and ask about that part, so we’ll have to see.” When and where he could appear remains to be seen then, but with an origin story rooted firmly in British mythology, Captain Britain would be a great addition.
