Earlier today, the Spider-Man casting rumors were finally put to rest when Marvel announced Tom Holland as the new Peter Parker. Although Spidey will reportedly debut in Captain America: Civil War, Holland will for sure put on the red and blue tights for the Spider-Man solo film in 2017, which Jon Watts will direct. While it’s a relief that this guessing game is finally over, this is just an early chapter in the process of bringing the MCU Spider-Man to life. High on the list of things we will wonder about over the next couple years is who Holland’s Spider-Man will battle?

Over five films in two continuities, moviegoers have seen Spidey fight a variety of adversaries from his iconic rogues gallery. It’s important that the filmmakers choose someone who is not only capable of being a worthy threat to the Web-Slinger, but can also stand out among the long list of MCU villains we’ve already seen. Fortunately, we already have ideas of people Marvel and Sony should look at, from characters that haven’t been seen in the movies yet to a new interpretation of a key villain. Here are our top picks of antagonists that should battle the Wall-Crawler in his next movie.

Fans were introduced to Vincent D’Onofrio’s version of Wilson Fisk in Daredevil Season 1, but let’s not forget that before he was one of the Man Without Fear’s greatest enemies, Kingpin started out as a Spider-Man adversary. While it’s likely that Kingpin will remain an important figure in the Daredevil TV series, pitting Tom Holland’s Spider-Man against the character allows more interconnectivity between the MCU projects. In the solo film, Fisk needs to have gotten past his origin story and become the ruthless crime boss the comic book fans love, white suit and all. D’Onofrio has had a long and diverse film career, so he would certainly have a good presence within the film. Spider-Man foes in the movies have consisted of super villains and petty street criminals. Let him tangle with an organized crime figure.
