Our friendly neighbourhood hero Spiderman has come a long way since Homecoming was released. But his past deeds are in no mood to spare him. Major Spiderman Homecoming Villain Scorpion has hinted on returning in MCU for future Spiderman movies.
- Who’s Scorpion, the villain from Spiderman Homecoming, in MCU?
- Why we never saw Scorpion from Homecoming again in MCU?
- Michal Mando on returning as Scorpion in future Spiderman Movies.
Though Spiderman quite elaborately introduced himself in “Captain America Civil War”, but Spiderman Homecoming was a great way to introduce Spiderman and his origin story in MCU. The movie did a great job in not wasting our time in showing us how Uncle Ben died, or how Peter Parker, played by Tom Holland, became Spiderman.
It quickly did a recap for us for the journey of Spiderman in MCU. The movie stayed very close to the comic version of Spiderman, with Spiderman being in high school, and actually attending school.
Who’s Scorpion, the villain from Spiderman Homecoming, in MCU?
Though Spiderman fought Vulture, played by Michael Keaton, in Spiderman Homecoming, we saw another well-known villain from Spiderman comics in Homecoming. When Tom Holland’s Spiderman defeated Vulture aka Adrian Toomes, and he was sent to prison. We saw Scorpion’s alter ego aka Mac Gargan, played by Michael Mando, approaching him to team up against Spiderman.
Scorpion wanted to know the actual name behind Spiderman’s mask, which Vulture did not tell him. Even after the introduction of Scorpion in Spiderman Homecoming, we didn’t see him appearing in any movie afterwards. However, some recent developments suggest that the Spiderman Homecoming villain Scorpion can return in MCU for future Spiderman Movies.
Why we never saw Scorpion from Spiderman Homecoming returning as a villain in MCU?
Spiderman has appeared in three movies after the release of Spiderman Homecoming, one of them being his solo movie, “Spiderman Far from Home”, and the other two being “Avengers Endgame” and “Avengers Infinity War”. But we never saw Scorpion again in any movie after his intro in Homecoming. Why?
It’s quite evident that Infinity War and Endgame were meant to deal with the Mad Titan Thanos. But we didn’t see Scorpion returning as a villain in Spiderman Far from Home as well, which was the second solo movie of Spiderman. Fans were expecting Scorpion to appear as a villain in Spiderman Far from Home, but instead, to our extreme pleasure, we got Mysterio, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, fooling Spiderman with his less mysterious more augmented powers.
Fans were pleased to see a really interesting version of Mysterio. But at the same time, they were disappointed due to the absence of Scorpion. However, now it seems like Marvel is finally considering the demands of fans. It seems extremely possible for Scorpion from Spiderman Homecoming to return as a villain in MCU for future Spiderman Movies.
Michal Mando on returning as Scorpion in future Spiderman Movies.
It was Michal Mando who first hinted on the possibility of Scorpion from Spiderman Homecoming returning as a Villain for future MCU movies. The actor who played Scorpion was never again seen playing it in Spiderman movies.
Thus, when asked about it in an interview, he said— “There is a chance [of him returning,” the actor assured us further, “There’s always a chance.” Though the actor didn’t confirm his return, he clearly hinted on the possible return.
The director of Spiderman Movies in MCU, Jon Watts, spoke in an interview last summer about Scorpion and his return in MCU as a villain against Spiderman. He said “We never really found the right moment to do something like that. It’s always just about it being right for the story and not just some sort of shoehorned-in cameo in [Far From Home],”.
He further continued, “But I do love the idea that they’re both (Scorpion and Vulture) still out there, and I like the idea that as we move forward with these films, we’re building out this rich world that we can continually draw from.”
Though neither the actor nor director confirmed the news of Spiderman Homecoming Villain Scorpion, returning as a villain for future Spiderman Movies in MCU. But what they said was a clear indication of the possible future miracle.
