Kevin Feige reveals his three favorite Marvel Spider-Man villains ...

The Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has had a number of notable roles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Tony Stark's Iron Man, Steve Rogers' Captain America, Nick Fury, and Loki's He Who Remains. Following Spider-Man: No Way Home's triumph and the bulk of Phase 4, the entertainment world was thrilled with Phase 5 and 6 announcements at San Diego Comic-Con.

Feige revealed more information than most people anticipated during Marvel's Hall H panel, but two things remain absent from his list of announcements: the X-Men and Spider-Man.

Feige's fate remains to be seen. Due to contractual limitations, the X-Men will be unable to reboot until 2025, or as a web-slinger, because Sony owns the film rights to everybody's friendly neighborhood Spideyand is currently developing itsSpider-Man Universe.

Despite that, Marvel Studios' primary creative is still a Spider-Man devotee; and like the MCU faithful, he has his opinions.

Kevin Feige Discusses His Favorite Spider-Man Villains

Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, revealed his top favorite Spider-Man villains from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, starting with "Doc Ock, for sure:"

"That's tough. I mean, of course, we'll think of the ones we've worked on in the movies." For sure, Doc Ock. Mysterio, both in the comics and the movies, is a fantastic, unique, and personal character."

The Mysterio from Jake Gyllenhaal in Spider-Man: Far From Home was a fresh and unique take on the villain, which was pivotal to Peter Parker's journey, but Doc Ock from Spider-Man 2 makes sense as Feige's first choice.

In Spider-Man: No Way Home, Alfred Molina's performance as Doctor Otto Octavius is considered to be one of the finest comic book villains, but Kevin Feige served as an executive producer.

Feige admitted that he "could easily say a Goblin," but instead, he chose "Vulture."

"I could easily be a Goblin, but I'll say Vulture." "I appreciate people who arent billionaires and are trying new things," said Michael Keaton in Homecoming. He thinks the world is nuts. "These people are doing all these things just because they're rich or they're gods or aliens."

The Marvel President responded when asked to choose between Gwen Stacy and Mary Jane Watson as his Spider-love interests, saying, "When I think of Peter Parker's classic relationship, I think of MJ."

Feige went with "MJ" when asked to choose between Felicia and Mary Jane.

Feige was questioned about his favorite web-slinging costume, which included the black costume, Iron Spider, 2099, Stealth, the classic, and Bag-Man.

Surprisingly, his first reply was Bag-Man, who replied, "I've never met anybody."

Bag-Man is my favorite to use on the list because it's so specific. I'd buy a Bag-Man figure..."

Bag-Man was created as a result of Peter Parker having to wear a Fantastic Four outfit and a paper bag mask as a result of him having no costume at all after Reed Richards helped him remove his symbiote suit.

Feige retracted his Bag-Man assertion and chose "the classic" as his costume choice, stating that "it's one of the greatest designs in human history."

"I believe the classic-costume Spider-Man registers with the human soul," says the author, who has spoken to smarter people than me. Ive seen little children who do not know who Spider-Man is see his face or see that outfit or see that mask and are drawn to it. Theres something about the way those lines and those colors and those eyes hit the optic nerves of a human that draws them in."

Feige Knows the Best

Because Kevin Feige is as big a fan as the MCU audience, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is standing above comic-book film franchises.

Because it's what he wants, he knows and respects these characters and stories and their fan favorites.

It's still interesting to see Tom Holland's Peter Parker's personal opinions on the Spidey baddies that have appeared on-screen thus far, especially in terms of why he's a fan of Vulture. Perhaps this is a clue into who or what kinds of villains Peter Parker will face in Spider-Man4 and beyond?

Similarly, while the classic Spidey suit should always be the right answer, Feige is helpful to know that he is a Bag-Man fan. Perhaps this also is something audiences may notice if he crosses paths with the Fantastic Four?

Only Feige knows when that might happen.
