4 Spider-Man villains we PROBABLY won't see in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Get a glimpse of Tom Hardy's transformation into Bane

Tom Hardy's Bane proved to be a capable foil to Christian Bale's Batman, strange accent aside, and I don't think anyone who isn't familiar with what Hardy looks like would recognize him as the the bulky bad-guy, even if you h...

10 Batman villains we'll never see in the Nolanverse photo
10 Batman villains we'll never see in the Nolanverse
by Sean Walsh

Ever notice how grim and gritty Christopher Nolan's Batman universe is? The effort to make everything as 'realistic' as possible? I mean, the Batmobile is a tank, Joker was just a crazy guy with a Glasgow smile, and there's no teenage boys running around in bright colors that just scream, "Diversion!" Lame.

The villains selected in the Nolan Batman trilogy are all based in this 'reality' he's created. Old, white ninja guy, burlap sack-wearing creep with fear chemicals, crazy person in clown make-up, and...big, beefy guy who sounds like a McDonalds order box.

I know I can't be the only one who wanted to see Joker slap Bats in the face with a Joker fish. So, I ask you: where are the awesome powers? The crazy gimmicks? The colorful costumes? The oft-ridiculous origin stories?

Read on to see the top ten villains we won't see in the Nolan Bat-movies.*

*Yes, I know he's done after Dark Knight Rises, let's pretend that he's making them for the rest of his life for the sake of argument.

Benedict will Cumberbatch all over Star Trek 2 as villain photo
Benedict will Cumberbatch all over Star Trek 2 as villain
by Jenika Katz

Sherlock Holmes, Smaug, and Star Trek villain: all of them kind of begin with an S, and all of them will be played by Benedict Cumberbatch. We aren't sure who the villain in the new Star Trek will be, but I am pretty sure Cumberbatch will do a wonderful job. I got the chance to see Danny Boyle's filmed stage version of Frankenstein where he traded off with Jonny Lee Miller for the roles of Frankenstein and the monster. Having already seen Cumberbatch play a more civilized character in Sherlock, I saw the version where he played the monster, and he did an admirable job. I'm really interested in seeing him play a slightly less intellectual villain.

If the reboot is following the general direction of the original movies, there's a good chance Cumberbatch will be playing Khan. I'd like to feel his wrath, if you know what I mean. I think you do.
