Nearly a year ago, I had a vision of casting future villains for the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Movie Pilot. It all begin with M.O.D.O.K., which lead to a prediction about the Masters of Evil one day making their way to the MCU, and even predicted some of the newest villains that have entered the MCU (Ulysses Klaue and Baron Zemo). With a year of the Movie Pilot community involvement and rigorous voting, we have quite the cast of villains on our hands. Let's review, chronologically, the entire You Cast the Villain casting list.

M.O.D.O.K.

John Malkovich

We've cast the talented John Malkovich in the role of M.O.D.O.K. and while the character itself is ridiculous (and perhaps too far of a stretch for the MCU), they made Zola work... who's to say they couldn't do the same for the Mobile Organism Designed Only for Killing?

Or maybe not...

Baron Mordo

Ralph Fiennes

Next, and perhaps more realistic of a character to appear in the next few years, we have Ralph Fiennes as Baron Mordo. Unfortunately, we were off on our casting estimates, because this character is going to Chiwetel Ejiofor. It'll be interesting to see the changes made to this story, nonetheless I'm looking forward to it.

Amora the Enchantress

Alice Eve

I was shocked to see that, according to this poll, you wanted Alice Eve as Amora the Enchantress. I was pulling for Charlize Theron the whole time, but Eve won out. After seeing her acting chops in some of her most recent movies, I'd have to agree with the decision; she'd be able to pull off the enticing enchantress very well.

Ulysses Klaw

Christopher Waltz

It was during this poll that news was released of Andy Serkis' having an unspecified role in Avengers: Age of Ultron. After seeing the movie (and the eerie resemblance of the character), I'm happy to see him in the role; however, before the character of Ulysses "Klaue" in the movies, you cast Christopher Waltz as Ulysses Klaw.

Moonstone

Amber heard you wanted her as Moonstone.

Another surprise to me, running up against Ali Larter, you cast Amber Heard as Moonstone. This character was my first prediction for the Masters of Evil, with Captain Marvel due out November 2nd, 2018.

Baron Zemo

Jude Law
Jude Law

After the big Spider-man news, You Cast the Villain took a hiatus in order to freak out about Spidey coming home to Marvel and set our casting aims on Spider-man and Captain Marvel. When we came back, in another casted-while-we-voted upset, it was announced that Daniel Bruhl will don the role just as we were deciding that we wanted to see Jude Law as Baron Zemo. With all these casting predictions coming true (well, the characters at least... we weren't quite there with casting), I was under the impression that perhaps the Thunderbolts were coming to the big screen.

Daniel Bruhl will be Baron Zemo in Civil War.

I'm still convinced that we'll see the Masters of Evil in Phase 4, so with that we went on to cast Madame Masque. But the voting isn't over yet! So, vote for Madame Masque here and vote for Venom here! And don't forget to follow me in order to keep up with future You Cast the Villain polls.
