Default Future villains for sequels

I don't see a thread for this, but thought it be cool to discuss who else could show up down the road. I am going to list first who hasn't showed up.

Mutant villains
Mr. Sinister
The Marauders (I suppose they could show up as a new group with Mystique in charge)
Omega Red
Avalanche (of all the Brotherhood villains he is the most prominent one we haven't seen)

Human villains
The Friends of Humanity
Graydon Creed
The Purifiers
Stephen Lang
Cameron Hodge

Aliens
Shi'ar:
Emperor D'Ken
Deathbird
The Phalanx (of course they don't have to be aliens could just be the virus that Cameron Hodge created)

Other
Mastermold
Bastion
Nimrod
Arcade
Mojo

Any other thoughts or others I missed

I personally could see a good movie around Bastion and maybe Mastermold mixed in, could be a different approach to the sentinels. The Phalanx would work as villains, although they do resemble the Borg. Not sure about the alien stuff.

I will list who I really want to see in order
Mr. Sinister
Avalanche
Omega Red
Bastion
Mastermold
The Phalanx
A few not sure how they would work like Arcade or Mojo, and then you have the Shi'ar which could be interesting if done right.

Maybe not as a main villain from the start but I'd like to see Selene in maybe a spin off or a minor character in a main film

They could do Legion.

Say Moira left Charles after 1966 or so because she was pregnant and didn't think him ready to be a father.

In the 80s their Son David Xavier (Legion) now mid to late teens is losing control of his powers and Moira seeks out Charles for help.

Moira has since quit the CIA and moved to Scotland to study genetics.

Sinister is the biggest villain that the X-Men have left. Also, the Marauders work for him. I mean, I wouldn't mind Sinister showing up after the credits to Apocalypse. I also wouldn't mind seeing Sinister have a role to play in the next film which presumable will be The Twelve or X-Cutioner's Song which are both pretty good ways to tie Sinister into Apocalypse's character before he branches out on his own.

Also, Avalanche, Post and SAURON are the biggest Brotherhood mutants to not be featured yet. Assuming we get the Brotherhood as the villains AGAIN, I'd expect these three to pop up.

Other evil mutants that you forgot are Emplate, Selene, Shadow King, Armageddon Man, Hazard, Fabian Cortez, Crule, Shinobi Shaw, Stryfe, Proteus, Gideon, Bianca LaNeige, Chimera and Daken.

As far as evil humans go, Hodge is my favorite but you also forgot Donald Pierce and the Reavers who are a rather important group of evil humans. Ogun also qualifies.

And with regards to your "other" category, I'd throw The Adversary in there as well as the Children of the Vault and Danger.

And if we have Stryfe as a villain, I wouldn't mind the Dark Riders popping up.

Fox still has a LOT to mine before they decide to reboot or sell the rights back.

I personally don't want human villains anymore.

I want Mr. Sinister and the Marauders, Avalanche, Sauron/Garokk if they go to Savage Land, Selene, Omega Red for Wolverine 3 and Spiral.

They could probably find a way to incorporate Mojo.

Maybe Shadow King

Hence why the only two humans that I want to see are Cyborgs. Hodge and Pierce aren't normal people at all.

Sinister and Shadow King for sure. Both are formidable challenges that are worthy of their own X-Men films. Plus they could EASILY make those films Scott/Jean/Ororo centric, which would be a welcome change. Omega Red is perfect for a Wolverine film. I'd love for them to hit the Shi'ar. Maybe if/when they re-do the Phoenix saga.

Which won't be for a while. There's no need to redo the Phoenix Saga when there are so many other storylines to mine. I mean the next logical steps after Apocalypse are (assuming the storyline here is Fall of the Mutants and not counting Wolverine's solo adventures)

1. X-Force to show the OTHER team of mutants and potentially bring Stryfe, Sinister or Selene into the picture as they're both tied to Apocalypse. Introduces, Cable and Domino and re-imagines Archangel, Deadpool and Psylocke.

2. X-Men: X-Cutioner's Song which'll show that Stryfe is an even bigger threat than Apocalypse and Apocalypse has to work with his enemies. Also, Sinister gets buildup as a strange shadowy presence.

3. X-Force 2: Assault on Weapon X. Exploring Deadpool and Domino's ties to Weapon X which naturally brings them into conflict with Sinister and introduces Fantomex and X-23.

4. X-Men: Messiah Complex (with elements of Inferno and Mutant Massacre) to bring Sinister's plans to fruition and have a theme of family between Scott, Nathan and Hope Summers. Also, it's where Gambit gets outed as a spy despite him having been won over to Xavier's side.

5. X-Force 3: Phalanx Covenant (with elements of Welcome to Genosha, X-Tinction Agenda and Second Coming) Cable's not adult adopted daughter has been kidnapped by Bishop and sold to Genosha. Worse yet, Genosha is being run by an old college friend of Archangel's named Cameron Hodge who has not only staged a military coup but he's also built a slave labor economy and now plans on "phasing them out" with nanotech robots that he calls "Phalanx" designed by a scientist who's really a sentinel from the future named Bastion.

6. X-Men: Fatal Attractions (with elements of Mutant Genesis, I Magneto and Rogue Nation) Magneto assisted X-Force with overthrowing the government of Genosha and rescuing Cable's daughter. Except now, he's created a country run for and by mutants where humans are marginalized and subjugated which has angered an international community who completely ignored Genosha's crimes against mutants. The X-Men are called in to negotiate but find themselves way in over their heads.


7. X-Force: The Dark Angel Saga. Archangel has always been emotionally unstable but now he may truly be reverting back to his beliefs when he served under Apocalypse. Worse yet, Apocalypse himself has returned and wishes to welcome Warren back with open arms. Cable and X-Force are forced to possibly have to kill somebody they not only consider a comrade, but a friend.

8. X-Men: The Twelve. The X-Men and X-Force join forces to defeat Apocalypse once and for all.

9. X-Force: Necrosha. After the nuclear strike on Genosha at the end of Fatal Attractions. Selene uses her power to reanimate the dead to give herself an army of undead mutants out for revenge on a humanity that slaughtered them.

Once these major storylines are done. I can see the next two being a redone Dark Pheonix Saga followed by the Road Trip arc of X-Force because let's face it, retelling the same old storyline gets old, I'd rather have something new.

Could easily picture this, or something similar, as the next FC trilogy. An X-Force crossover, a Sinister centric story, and a Magneto centric story. Once they get X-Force up and running, X-Cutioner's Song is a MUST imo.

Mr. Sinister is biggest must now.
We had Magneto, we will have Apocalypse, to close big three supervillains - FOX have to give us Mr. Sinister next.
Omega Red is must for Wolverine 3.
Please no more human villains, I'm bored of this war humans vs mutants. We had Stryker and Trask as Purifiers, enough.
We had Sentinels, so no to Bastion, Matermold,...

No, Bastion and Hodge should be in the films, just not until some evil mutants pop up first.

I agree with Kasjan.

And I'll always see Magneto/Apocalypse/Mr.Sinister as the three big supervillains of the X-Men universe.

And lol at you ignoring the storylines that I suggested that X-Force follow. The point is for X-Force and X-Men to be two teams that alternate stories to tell one big story. Like after X-Cutioner's Song, X-Force decides to explore Weapon X which expands on Mr. Sinister and the Legacy Virus with the best arc from Grant Morrison's run that has to lead into Messiah Complex where Sinister has already been built up as the most personal villain the X-Men have ever faced. At that point audiences already know the villain, they know that he worked undercover as Auschwitz for British intelligence and rescued Magneto from Shaw only to instill the idea that he was a superior being and humanity was obsolete within him. That he already cloned Wolverine and was also responsible for creating Domino and Fantomex as well as turning Wade Wilson into Deadpool as part of the Weapon X project. More importantly, he's obsessed with curing Stryfe's Legacy Virus at all cost and makes an offhand remark that if a mutant were born with an immunity, he wouldn't think twice about using her as a lab rat. Oh, and he ensured that both Cyclops and Jean joined the X-Men in the hope that they would breed a messiah for mutantkind... Cable himself.

And keep in mind that after the X-Men save Hope Summers from the Morlock tunnels and manage to defeat Sinister, Cyclops gives Hope to Cable to raise and X-Force has to deal with the Genoshan government kidnapping Hope so that the Legacy Virus will destroy any and all mutants. Magneto teaming up wtih X-Force to overthrow Genosha. That plus Archangel's relation to Cameron Hodge, Bastion revealing that the OT timeline still exists, it was merely split and he's come from an alternate future to ensure that mutants are wiped from all possible futures + Warlock and the Phalanx being bred as a nanoplague to replace organic life itself. A different version of Bishop from yet another timeline where Hope Sumemrs is responsible for becoming Apocalypse's greatest weapon against humanity also returns to the past so he can kill Hope Summers which leads to a climax where Cable is forced to abandon X-Force during their final battle where Domino leads the team while Cable raises Hope Summers across history fighting Bishop while the rest of X-Force faces off against Cameron Hodge and the Phalanx while Cable returns to the present with a fully-grown Hope. Finally, Magneto takes control of Genosha and uses it to be his own country where mutants rule over humanity as the post-credits scene.

Then once Genosha was destroyed during the following X-Men sequel, Apocalypse returns to tempt Archangel to become his successor with Warren even impregnating one of Apocalypse's horsemen with twins who serve as a dark counterpart to Hope, leading Bishop to bury the hatchet and join X-Force when he realizes that trying to murder Hope did nothing to prevent his horrible future from coming to pass. Which leads into the X-Men dealing with The Twelve storyline where the X-Men and X-Force cross over in a way that's more than just Cable and Cyclops in X-Cutioner's Song and Messiah Complex or X-23 appearing in Wolverine's solo films. The Twelve would be a massive spectacle that would have this gigantic payoff for all the storylines that were built over the past few years.

Keep in mind that I'd still follow that up with the X-Force Necrosha storyline since Selene has been a major threat to X-Force across numerous stories but would be a follow up to X-Men: Fatal Attrations which would be followed up with the X-Men fighting Proteus and both of those storylines would be focused on closure for both teams of characters while putting the X-Men in a vampire film and X-Force in a zombie flick.

After that, X-Force would go on a cross-country road trip which would be a travel movie based on X-Force 70-100 where the team encounters adventure along the way. The X-Men on the other hand would be busy dealing with Bastion reviving the Sentinel program from the 70s.

Ignoring X-Force is big, massive mistake since you clearly only paid attention to half the post you quoted. Both franchises should be essential to understanding the whole.

That and Wolverine films that would have Old Man Logan to say good bye to Hugh Jackman, followed by The Lazarus Project except Pinnochio would be replaced with Omega Red. Then a film that would be a loose adaptation of Final Execution where Wolverine bonds with X-23 but also finds himself having a son he never even knew about out for revenge while Sabretooth exists as a shadowy presence in the background. Then finally, Wolverine: Enemy of the State where Mystique's team of governemnt sponsored mutant heroes known as X-Factor are attacked by a brainwashed Wolverine ho then regains his sense of self after being branded a fugitive. The only name he remember who could help clear his name is somebody known as "Donald Pierce" who may allegedly have ties to the Weapon X program. Who is Pierce? What does he want with Wolverine? And why is the mutant cyborg Yuriko Oyama hunting for his blood?

I'm also expecting the Gambit spin-off to use the Thieve's Guild story with Belladonna and have Sinister also playing a role.

Now if Fox and Marvel can play nice with each other long enough to allow them to co-produce New Mutants and X-Factor TV shows, that's just icing on the cake but more importantly, it means that the students of the X-Mansion can face off against Emplate.

Paid attention to all of it . I agree X-Force is important, and getting it going alongside X-Men to form something bigger is what the studio should be working on. Just quoted the ideas that seemed most reasonable/realistic for the current(FC cast) film franchise's future IMO.

I think Sauron is better off being saved for the Savage Land. A movie with him, Zaladane and Garrok as the primary antagonists could work, with the Savage Land mutates (Brainchild, Amphibius, Barbarus - possibly Vertigo if she isn't affiliated with Mr. Sinister) acting as the henchmen.

Fox likes doing it.

But Paddy Considine would be a great Sinister.

Since were getting Apocalypse in 2016, I think the new two big villains they need to face are Mr. Sinister and Shadow King. Sinister could be a great way to have a movie focused on Jean and Scott and Shadow King could do the same for Storm as well.

Other than those two, there's definitely a lot more left. I would LOVE to see a lead female villain for once in these comics. Selene leading a resurrected Hellfire Club would be pretty good or Cassandra Nova.

Default Re: Future villains for sequels

So now that we know what year XMA is set in, I'm hoping that X-Force is set in the late 1980s or early 1990s back when Die Hard and Terminator 2 were popular. Just go all out with the type of macho one-liner dropping action flick that was popular at the time. Say around 1989-1991. This presumably comes out in 2018 based on the release dates Fox set. That and the 2017 film is probably Old Man Logan with Hugh Jackman in the present day. There will probably also be a Gambit prequel film set in 1982 getting released in late 2016.

X-Cutioner's Song would take place in the early-mid 1990s when backwards baseball caps were cool and roller blades were in style. Mostly since it makes sense for it to take place then, partially since I like that time period and miss the fashion and culture of the time. Say around 1993-1994. Plus Dolly was cloned at around that time and the internet opened up. The idea of a villain like Stryfe who has all sorts of advanced technology and is willing to engineer a plague to wipe out mutantkind fits perfectly into that time period. I'm guessing this can be released in 2019, with whoever plays Cable shooting back to back.

2019 would also see a Deapool prequel movie and with the leaked script based on the Circle Chase, that's probably the story we're getting. That and with Doctor Doom done in the first film and Mole Man in the second, I'd use Annihilus who's already being teased for having a cameo in the reboot.

I'd put Assault on Weapon X in the late 90s. Back when Gattaca and The Matrix were popular since it would be a film about genetic engineering, breeding projects, etc. Also, Sinister really works at around that time. He looks like he'd fit into The Matrix and it's Fantomex fits the aesthetics as well. Hopefully 1997-1999. I'd release it in 2020 since only the X-Force characters would be involved and only Cable and Sinister would return from X-Cutioner's Song.

2020 would also be the date of a Wolverine Sequel. I'm hoping it's Enemy of The State and set in the 90s. Something where Gorgon and The Hand are replaced with Donald Pierce and The Reavers and Nick Fury and SHIELD are replaced with Valerie Cooper, Mystique and X-Factor. Mostly for license reasons but also to see the final battle be a faithful recreation of Wounded Wolf (with a random child replacing the girl from power Pack) and an excuse to give X-Factor some screentime.

Messiah Complex would absolutely take place in 1999-2000. It has everything to do with Hope Summers either saving or destroying mutantkind depending on whether Cyclops and Cable or Sinister raise her. At the time there was the whole Y2K phenomenon where people were divided between hope and fear. Some were predicting Armageddon, others were hoping for a new age to dawn. It would release it in 2021, being a small, more personal film. this is one where the stakes won't be world-shattering but they'll still be higher for the protagonists.

I'd also do a Deadpool sequel in 2021. I'm not sure which storyline to use since I'm not a big Deadpool reader. That and a Fantastic Four sequel since Deadpool would always be done on a lower budget. The FF sequel would feature Doctor Doom returning as the leader of the Frightful Four with Wizard, Mad Thinker and Trapster backing him up.

Phalanx Covenant wouldn't have as far of a time skip. Mostly since 2002-2005 were year defined by paranoia in the post-9/11 era and fear of mutant terrorism was at an all time high. Genosha would be this country so terrified about a mutant rebellion that they're willing to go to any length to gain a sense of security, no matter the cost. Cameron Hodge transforming into a cyborg would work as a metaphor for the loss of privacy happening at the time where he has the ability to launch pre-emptive attacks against anyone who may potentially be a "dangerous" mutant or any normal human who may potentially be a mutant sympathizer using a combination of mass surveillance and profiling to target enemies of the state. Release date: 2022.

I'd also make the second 2022 film a Wolverine film based on The Lazarus Project where Pinnochio is replaced with Omega Red and the MacGuffin is the Carbonadium Synthesizer. During the first act, Wolverine is undercover as Patch protecting a local crime boss from people who are even worse and then teaming up with a local woman going named Xi'an Coy Mahn AKA, Karma who would fill both her normal role in the story but combined with Spider-Woman's for license reasons. The second act would be all about Wolverine being shipwrecked on the island with the MacGuffin on it that Omega Red needs and Wolverine learning to live with the villagers in order to protect them. The third act is where Omega Red and the other goons employed by a rival gang leader raid the island, slaughter most of the villagers and Wolverine teams back up again with Karma to get a ton of revenge since this time it's personal.

And since the Wolverine sequel wouldn't need that high of a budget, I'd do a Silver Surfer film that tells of his origin, where he becomes the herald of Galactus, saving his planet from destruction at the cost of other worlds.

Fatal Attractions would also need to be a post-9/11 film set very shortly after Phalanx Covenant. Something where Magneto is considered by many to be Osama bin Laden with his own country and others viewing him as a freedom fighter who helped X-Force overthrow a brutal regime. It would see the light of day in 2023.

2023 would also have Deadpool and Fantastic Four films. The FF film would have Silver Surfer discover Earth and pave the way for the coming of Galactus. In order to stop Galactus from destroying our world, the FF need to team up with an enemy who they fought twice before. They need... Doctor Doom.

Dark Angel Saga would take place in 2012 since that's the year that was predicted to be the end of the world. The idea that your best friend may be the harbinger of doomsday would be so incredibly relevant to the year it was set in that it's impossible to choose any other date for it. I'd have this come out in 2024.

2024 is when I'd also do another Wolverine movie. I'd make it a team-up with X-23 and base it on Final Execution with Daken and Sabretooth as the villains.

2025 would just be Deadpool early on in the year and then a later Fantastic Four film due to scheduling with a team up of X-Men and X-Force in the works. The Fantastic Four Film would be entirely based on the Ultimate version of the team, particularly issues 54-57 where Agatha Harkness who was the kind old babysitter that the Richards employed is actually seven immortal sorceresses.

The Twelve would probably be set today in the mid-2010s. It's hard to really capture the spirit of an era while it's still happening but it makes sense for it to take place today based on when each of these films should occur. I'd release it in 2026 since it's going to involve both the X-Men and X-Force teaming up so the X-films would skip a year. I'd also skip the Wolverine sequel in this year since he'd still have a role to play in a big, expensive film which will probably run for 3.5 hours.

The other film would be a Silver Surfer solo film where Galactus was banished to the Negative Zone, leaving the Surfer without a purpose. He returns to his home planet, only to find his people enslaved by the Badoon, led by Reptyl Prime.

Necrosha would presumably take place during the late 2010s/early 2020s so it's a good 10-15 years after Genosha was destroyed which left time for healing but is still recent enough that a mutant would presumably want revenge for humanity's slaughter of her kind. I'd have this be released in 2027.

I'd also put out a Wolverine sequel in 2027. I'd have it be a story where Wolverine sees what happens in the new timeline after his consciousness returned to 2023. He fell into a coma in 2022 after being attacked by a new, different Silver Samurai which explains the end of DOFP. Moreover, with his memories restored, Wolverine knows exactly who he was and sets out to discover what changed without him involved in Japan. It turns out that Ichiro Yashida transformed Harada into the Silver Samurai in this timeline. Also, Shingen is the one to defeat Wolverine in a swordfight instead of it being the other way around and Mariko dies from being poisoned by her own father. Wolverine sets out for revenge but picks up a cursed sword known as the Muramasa Blade and the new, different Silver Samurai is the one who saves Wolverine from the sword turning him into a crazed, bloodthirsty killer.

This along with a Fantastic Four sequel for 2027 where the Skrulls have infiltrated the Future Foundation and impersonated many of its scientists. Oh, and one member of the FF is secretly Super Skrull but nobody knows which it is.

Proteus is when the X-Men films have finally caught up to their production schedule. It's ultimately a timeless story that's about themes like abuse, neglect, rape, etc. It's still my favorite X-Men story of all time and I really want to see it on the big screen but it can't be rushed and the movies need to have a natural flow to them. This opens the door for crossovers with the Fantastic Four due to finally taking place concurrently. Release date: 2028.

X-Force: Destination Unknown would also take place when produced. It's a movie about superheroes on vacation that would hopefully go down as one of the greatest road movies of all time. It's a much lighter film tonally with X-Force traveling across the United States but finding trouble along the way. Mostly since it's a way of lightening the mood between two really, really dark X-Men stories. 2029 would be when I'd release this.

The FF film for 2029 would be about the denizens of the Nagative Zone who managed to defeat Galactus (Terrax, Blastaar and Occulus) breaking free and having their Vengeance upon Earth. I'd also do something with Wolverine this year.

A medley of Dark Phoenix with Onslaught would just be absolutely perfect. It's a story where the X-Men find that their greatest enemies are themselves, both between team members and with characters struggling with themselves. This would be a very tonally dark film that would even come across as bleak at times, complete with many of the X-Men confronting secrets and fears alike. I'd release it in 2030 along with a Deadpool film.

2030 is also a year for Deadpool to get a film.

After this, I'd go with the Sex and Violence storyline of X-Force. Something where the members of the team are being hunted down by assassins and they come face to face with Gambit's ex-wife who's now 40 years older than when she was introduced. Coming 2031.

2031 would also have a Fantastic Four film dealing with Hyperstorm returning to the past to gain revenge on his ancestors who will perform a scientific experiment that will leave the world as the ruin he conquered. His goal is to erase his future from existence and make certain that it never comes to pass by murdering his family.

Then there will be Another Wolverine film.

Then in 2032, I'd do a medley of The Hunt for Xavier with Dangerous where the mansion becomes sentient and Danger serves as the main villain. We need a Joss Whedon story done right after X-Men 3 messed up Gifted.

by 2033, we'll have two decades of new X-Force stories which were printed so even though I'm currently drawing blanks on where to take this next, I'm pretty sure that there will be all sorts of new X-Force characters to use. But just for the sake of making a post, I'd have X-Force team up with the Fantastic Four and combine them into one film for that year.

I'm not even sure what I'd do with the Fantastic Four in 2033. I'm drawing blanks here but it definitely involves Terminus.

2034 would be Supernovas since that's the last X-Men story that comes to mind that would work when adapted to a film. Just like with X-Force, I'm not sure where I'd bring the X-Men next since by this point, all their major storylines were used but there will be two more decades worth of tales to tell going forward.

2035: Secret Wars where the X-Men, X-Force and Fantastic Four team up to face the Beyonder.

At this point comes the hard reboot since even with recasts, the characters have become too old and there is no way to top Secret Wars in terms of spectacle or stakes. But Fox can sustain their Marvel properties until 2035 while telling most of the essential storylines. And Apologies for not reading Deadpool comics. I just didn't have the time to start collecting him but I'm going to get to him next once I have cash.
