Fox have certainly staked a claim for their own Marvel universe. They have the rejuvenated X-Men franchise, also the impending popular anti-hero Deadpool coming. More recently though we have Josh Trank's Fantastic Four. After a turbulent pre production and negative feedback about the cast (primarily about Jordan) the criticism has been thawed thanks to the trailers. So, Fox are very confident about this movie that a sequel has been commissioned for 2017. We all know (probably) that the Fantastic Four will go toe to toe with Doctor Doom. But who will be the villian be in the sequel? There is already rumours that Namor and the Silver Sufer will appear in the sequel. However, both are not primary villians as such. So here are some candidates villians who might appear in the sequel.

After the abysmal sequel to the Fantastic Four. Rise of the Silver Sufer was even worse. Not only was the plot dire but Galactus was portrayed as a cloud?! One of the most influential figures in the Marvel universe was not done any justice. If we ever see Galactus again I am confident that Fox will rectify their mistakes.
2. Mad Thinker.

Impossible Man is an alien shape shifter. He can turn himself into any living being. He also has the ability to turn his body into a weapon...like turning his arm into a huge knife. Impossible Man can also teleport and has great knowledge.
These are some of the potential villians that we could possibly see in the sequel. Along with the much rumoured Namor and Silver Sufer appearance the Fantastic Four reboot franchise is looking healthy.

I for one would love to see Namor and Silver Sufer. This would give the chance for them to potentially have a solo movie. Fox have a great chance to rival MCU if they continue to properly develop their Marvel roster.
