The first two Spider-Man films that Raimi blessed us with were unforgettable, and will forever go down as some of my favorite movies of all time. Even though Sam Raimi's vision of Spider-Man is long gone, I still think about it. Whether it's pondering what it would've been like if Tobey joined the Avengers, or if he faced off against the Sinister Six. I'm a dreamer, and I know I'm not the only one. So instead of making a status about this on the MP Creators page, I figured why not make it into a post. Now let's nerd out over what could have been in Characters I Would've Loved to See in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man.

Black Cat

I was really hoping to see my favorite cat burglar in Raimi's Spider-Man. She would have brought a lot of conflict into the life of Peter Parker (like he didn't have enough already), as well as open a lot of doors for more stories to come. As a wee lad, I would have loved to see them connect Black Cat to Captain America, considering in Spider-Man: The Animated Series they obtained their power from the same formula. Now that's wishful thinking.

Electro

I know that Electro was introduced in Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but he was actually one of my top picks for villains to make an appearance in Raimi's Spider-Man. Main reason being Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro was one of my favorite games as a kid. Because of that game, there were so many nights full of headaches, tears, and the typical "You're cheating, I'm Spider-Man, you can't kill me that easily!!"

Aside from the stress caused by the game, it really made me see Electro as a prominent villain, and fed my hopes to someday see him on the big screen. Considering Raimi's Spider-Man was the closest thing to the animated series from the '90s, it would have been an awesome experience to witness classic Spidey go toe-to-toe with a classic villain.

Kingpin

HE'S RIGHT BEHIND YOU SPIDEY!

First I'd like to say that I'm glad that the Kingpin of Crime is finally being brought into the now established Marvel Cinematic Universe. I say now established, because he was already introduced in the Daredevil movie that we can all just forget about. Back to the matter at hand, I would have loved to see Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man go up against the Kingpin.

The Kingpin is arguably Spider-Man's most formidable opponent, and could have brought a whole lot of hurt and a whole lot of trouble to Raimi's Spiderverse. A story based loosely off of Back In Black would have been legendary. I actually wouldn't be surprised if we saw that sometime down the line. Also, might I add that Vincent D'Onofrio is doing a wonderful job as the Kingpin. Can't wait to see him and Spidey bring it in for a good 'ol bear hug.

Lizard

This was the first villain that I was introduced to in Spider-Man: TAS which immediately made him a top candidate for villains that I wanted to see in the original Spider-Man movies. The thought of Tobey's Spider-Man kicking the Lizard into the wall of a sewer makes me sad knowing that it never happened. Seeing him in The Amazing Spider-Man was cool, but just as Electro, I would rather have seen classic Spidey going up against a classic villain; how amazing would that have been? (No pun intended).
