With Phase 3 of the MCU set to commence upon the imminent release of Captain America: Civil War, one aspect of the universe that has everyone’s attention is our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. After a long and public struggle between Sony and Marvel Studios, a deal was arranged to share the legendary character, with Tom Holland’s iteration of the Web Head planned to soon grace the silver screen. Holland's tenure starts in the upcoming Captain Americasequel, and then in 2018 with his own film, Spider-Man: Homecoming.
As if that wasn’t great enough, we have also just learned that Spider-Man: Homecoming is attempting to enlist the acting talents of Oscar nominee Michael Keaton to portray the film’s villain. A beloved and versatile actor, there’s no shortage of possible villains that the former Batman could portray, and as such our speculation has only just begun. After ample consideration, we’ve compiled a list of the seven villains that Michael Keaton could absolutely play in Spider-Man: Homecoming who haven't yet received the silver screen treatment; sorry Green Goblin and Doc Ock, you guys are old news. Now let’s get the ball rolling with No. 7…

7. Chameleon
Considering the fact that Spider-Man: Homecoming will mark the first ever solo adventure for Tom Holland’s version of the iconic Marvel hero, it would make sense for Jon Watts’ upcoming film to use the hero’s first ever villain. Dmitri Smerdyakov, a.k.a Chameleon, debuted along with Peter Parker all the way back in 1963 during the events of Amazing Spider-Man #1. Unlike many of Spider-Man’s iconic silver screen villains, Chameleon poses a threat on a much more subtle, cerebral level. Rather than representing only a physical threat to the Wall Crawler, Chameleon can take the appearance of any person – allowing him to easily evade detection. A movie revolving around Spider-Man’s struggle against Chameleon could almost play out like the It Follows of superhero movies; anyone could be the enemy and the tension never ceases. The character is also believed to potentially be in his 70s, making the 64-year-old Michael Keaton a strong match to portray him.
6. Carnage
Of all the characters present on this list, Cletus Kasady, a.k.a Carnage, would likely be the most physically demanding for Michael Keaton to portray. A deranged serial killer turned symbiote host, Carnage has become one of Spider-Man’s most iconic villains -- one whom fans have longed to see on the silver screen for some time. With a twisted sense of humor and very little aversion to taking lives in grisly fashion, Carnage is the type of role that Keaton could really sink his teeth into, all thanks to a robust resume over the years full of deranged characters that seem to take glee in chaos. For him to give us an older, more seasoned version of Carnage would be nothing less than awesome, though it would admittedly be difficult to bring him to the silver screen without Venom. We’ll leave that to Spider-Man: Homecoming’s screenwriters to figure that puzzle out.
