Disney+ Should Get a Marvel Villains Anthology Series

The MCU is growing fast and we’re glad this multiverse franchise isn’t going to end anytime soon. But there are already several upcoming projects, and many of our favorite heroes or villains won’t even be introduced to them. The likes of Fantastic Four, Nova, Silver Surfer, X-Men and multiple others will be brought in soon. And it’s safe to say that most of them will be getting their own solo projects. But like I said, MCU’s roster is already so full and they need to introduce/explore a lot of villains as well. So we have an idea of ​​how to quickly defeat multiple bad guys with enough screen time through a Marvel Villains anthology series on Disney+.

Right now, there are 26 upcoming projects that Marvel has already announced. And this number is only growing. Most MCU projects are hero-driven. But there are certain villains who could and should get their own solo stories. And it would be very difficult to give all the villains their own projects. Because the MCU has gotten so big, most movies end up with ensemble casts. And that makes it hard for villains to get their screen time. That’s why certain villains need their own shows/movies. Agatha Harkness gets one. And I would argue that there are many others who should get projects like: Agatha House of Harkness.

But Marvel isn’t really giving the green light to too many villain-focused projects. And with so many already green-lit, Marvel may need to play smart, save time, and do something special with the villains. Therefore, Disney+ could use a Marvel Villains anthology series and flesh out the following characters:

Doctor Doom

Doctor Doom debuts in Black Panther 2

Victor Von Doom would play a small role in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and then he’d be ready to wreak havoc in the MCU. But he might be the best villain Marvel has, so he could even get his own solo movie. But with that I have already discussed the problem. Starting in 2024 and beyond, Marvel will need to flesh out characters at a faster pace. So instead of giving Doctor Doom a two-hour movie or a 6-episode series, they could make a 1-hour episode with a generous budget and cover its origins. Then he would be ready to venture into other MCU crossover events.

Magnet Solo

Like Doctor Doom, Magneto is also a great villain/anti-hero who needs plenty of breathing room. Fox had the idea for a movie “X-Men Origins: Magneto”. But that was canceled after Wolverine’s failure. Instead of reviving that plan, Marvel could have focused the second installment of their Anthology series on Magneto. We’ve already seen a lot of his story in Fox’s X-Men movies. So Marvel could do something new in a 50-60 minute episode. Then he would be ready for MCU’s X-Men and other projects.


Mordo returns Doctor Strange 2 and we will probably find out what he was up to. But the movie is already so overcrowded that it may not give Mordo enough time. He is supposed to become a big villain in the future of MCU. And the last time we saw him was in the post-credits scene of Doctor Strange where his villainous turn was only lightly hinted at. So there is a time difference of 7-8 years between his first and second MCU appearance. We don’t know what happened during that time or how he got his dreadlocks. But an episode in the Disney+ series ‘Marvel Villains’ could show us exactly what he’s been up to and why he’s going to be a villain in the future.


Jude Law’s Yon-Rogg has been absent for much longer than even Mordo. The last time we saw him was in 1995. And MCU’s current year is 2025. So there’s 30 years of stories to tell. We don’t know what happened to him on Hala after Carol sent him back. And the miracles will be exploring the three heroes along with Zawe Ashton’s villainous character. So maybe Marvel Villains Episode 4 can show us a Yon-Rogg story in an hour or so.

The leader

Even Samuel Sterns hasn’t been seen in the MCU since then The Incredible Hulk. We all want to know how and where he hid his big head. Perhaps his missing story could become the fifth installment of our Marvel Villains series. Then he would be ready to become the villain of MCU’s eventual Thunderbolts project.


It’s time Marvel introduced him to the MCU. They posted so many devilish hints to play with us. But we still haven’t seen this demon lord! Perhaps the closing event of our proposed Marvel Villains anthology series can introduce this Red Devil to the MCU!

The budget

These are all characters whose stories can be told on a budget of 20-$40 million (or less) per episode if Marvel does it smart. So instead of going big for just one character with a film budget of 100-$150 million, a total budget of 150-$200 million could be spent on this Marvel Villains Anthology Series. That would keep it comparable, or probably make it a bit more expensive than the other MCU shows. But it would be worth it, as Marvel explored 6 different villains while offering us variety at the same time. I would say that this Anthology series idea can also be used to quickly explore certain heroes such as Iron Fist, Beta Ray Bill and others.

What do you think of the idea of ​​the “Marvel Villains” series? And what other villains could be explored on the show besides those mentioned above? Let us know in the comments.
