Reportedly, Another Villain Will Appear In ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’

Rumor has it, another villain will pop up in ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’, but it’s an extremely shaky one.  Supposedly, one of the accompanying toy lines is including an action figure based on comic book villain, the Molten Man.  Then again, the ‘Black Panther’ Marvel Legends wave included Iron Man, Namor the Sub-Mariner and Black Bolt of the Inhumans and none of them were anywhere near Wakanda in that movie.

An appearance by Molten Man wouldn’t be completely nuts, though.  In the comics, the villain– real name, Mark Raxton– is the stepbrother of Liz Allen.  Liz was changed to Liz Toomes in ‘Homecoming’ and she was the daughter of Michael Keaton‘s Adrian Toomes, a.k.a. the film’s major villain The Vulture.  Laura Harrier played Liz and there have been rumors that she may reappear in ‘Far From Home’, although that hasn’t been confirmed.  If that is the case, there could also be a familial connection between Mark Raxton and Adrian Toomes, which could make his introduction organic.

‘Far From Home’ is confirmed to feature more of The Vulture, although it is said his role is pretty small in the sequel.  The main villain will be Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio/Quentin Beck.  Reportedly, Numan Acar is playing Dmitri Smerdyakov, a.k.a. The Chameleon, although at this point, his character is listed as just “Dmitri” on IMDB.  There is also a rumor that Hydro Man may make an appearance in a scene set in Venice, but I’ll believe that when I see it.

If you think adding Molten Man to the mix is too many villains, remember that in addition to The Vulture, ‘Homecoming’ also included The Prowler (Donald Glover), The Thinker (Michael Chernus), The Scorpion (Michael Mando) and two different Shockers (Logan-Marshall Green and Bokeem Woodbine).  If characters like The Chameleon, Hydro Man, and Molten Man play minor roles like those, it may not be too distracting if they put in an appearance in ‘Far From Home’.

But for now, take that with a grain of salt.

Jason Motes

Jason’s earliest memory is of watching ‘Batman,’ followed shortly by a memory of playing Batman & Robin with a friend, which entailed running outside in just their underwear and towels as capes. When adults told them they couldn’t run around outside in their underwear, both boys promptly whipped theirs off and ran around in just capes. Jason’s father gamely agreed to read him comic books as bedtime stories instead of ‘Snow White.’ (Super Friends being his favorite.) Jason saw all of the original Star Wars movies (and Indiana Jones and Superman and Star Trek…) in the theaters. Yes, he is old. And grew up in the most GEEKTASTIC decade ever, the 80s, devouring a steady diet of GI Joe, Transformers, Masters of the Universe, Princess of Power and (best of all) Jem! (It totally counts as sci fi! They had a sentient computer that projected holograms!) Jason has studied literature, journalism, film history and has a degree in creative writing (and a minor in psychology) from the University of South Alabama. He has worked as a technical writer and proofreader. These days, most of his creative energy goes into his blog and writing for this site! He lives with the cutest puppies ever.
