So Captain America: The First Avenger was a success, both financially and critically (for the most part). With the film making its way out of theatres, all heads are turning to the inevitable sequel. Of course, one of the big questions is who will the villain be?
Luckily, Christopher Markus, a co-writer on Captain America: The First Avenger, has the answer. According to him, we may be seeing MODOK (Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing), in the next film.
“I love MODOK and I think you could make a terrifying movie with MODOK but nobody seems to be on my side at the momentum… I will win you over to Peter Dinklage as MODOK. If he came around the corner and you saw him floating there you would be terrified. It would be amazing. In this movie, the great thing is [the visual effects and makeup team] really pulled off the Red Skull. It doesn’t look like a mask. it looks like it’s fully integrated into his flesh. And I want to see what they can do with MODOK.”
While the film is still a few years away (2013 at the earliest), I do like the idea of including MODOK and I think it’s one that the filmmakers should take seriously. Plus, Peter Dinklage is awesome and I’d love to see him in the film.
I think Markus is right, the effects team did do a great job with Red Skull and it’d be neat to see how they work with MODOK. The more I think about it, this is definitely something I’d like to see.
What do you think? Do you want to see MODOK as the villain?
