Now we all know of a little TV series hitting our screens this year; SHIELD!
We know the heroes of the show, a new cast as well as recurring favorites, but what we do not know is the villains of the piece.

There are two ways they can go with this. Firstly they can have a villain of the week type form showcasing villains from throughout the Marvel Universe. Characters like Batroc the leaper or Bullseye could be used effectively here. They could even bring in someone like the leader with Tim Blake Nelson reprising his role. These would be cheap ways to expand the universe and increase the rogues gallery in the MCU even using some villains again in the films with the same actors reprising their roles.

The second way to include the villains is to have an overarching story line like arrow does. Have a villain like the Kingpin (Marvel has the rights back now) to control most the criminals of the city and get SHIELD to try to break up the organisation. Throw in some film organisations like HYDRA, AIM or ROXXON oil, and some new ones such as the Hand or the Serpents Society.

Now for the two villains I would like to be included:

Bullseye
A woefully underused character in film and not portrayed correctly in Daredevil, this villain would be perfect for the SHIELD TV series. As well as requiring no CGI or expensive effects and giving our heroes a character who will pose quite a physical threat, Bullseye will leave fans satisfied and general viewers invested in the series. He could be the villain who always get's away being a constant nuisance to the SHIELD team, hired by the Kingpin to take out various people.

The hood
The hood like the Kingpin can be the villain of the whole series, employing other villains to do the dirty work for him whilst he searches for a better source of power. SHIELD could be tracking him so he has to keep throwing more villains like the wrecking crew at them to try to slow them down until he finds something like the norn stones.

Share your thoughts below and tell me what villains you would like to see in the new SHIELD series!

Im not sure, but I think Sony have the right to the Kingpin, but Bullseye is a great choice, a merc that his hired different time facing SHIELD on there mission.

I think Kingpin went back to marvel when the daredevil rights went back.

Possible, but Marc Webb said he could use the charter in a future Spiderman movie.

Maybe it's one of the shared characters then like Quicksilver, anyone know?

Marvel didn't get Kingpin back. Sony loaned him to Fox so he's back with Spider-Man.

Oh ok, didn't know about this.

What are the superheroes announced? I don't remember any but I'll check online too.

Yeah, I'm with DeadpoolsCommonSense. When on Earth were any superheroes confirmed for the show??
mediamaniagc - 2/22/2013, 2:42 PM
I meant heroes as in the protagonists.

They havent confirmed either bad guys or good guys.

I want to see a more secret agent JAMES BOND type show, away from the superhero stuff...

Hydra...
AIM...

I think Item 47 was something of the pitch - it will probably involve the super-powered stuff, but falling into the wrong hands.

The likelihood is that this series, in terms of the characters and villains and stuff, will be inspired by things like the X-Files and the Men In Black, in that SHIELD will revolve around covert agents investigating and handling supernatural events around the world.

Shield has no shortage of enemies doctor- The Avengers

Pretty sure Marvel have TV rights to ALL their characters. You could have spider-man showing up in S.H.I.E.L.D as long as he didn't appear in the movies.

AIM would probably be the best set of villians for the main story. Each episode could focus on a villian using aim tech. I think they are going to keep it basic in the begining, so I dont expect alot of big time villians or heroes cameo early on. Eventually it could be the spring board for the MCU, but it really doesnt sound like the route they are taking right now.

Bullseye and Kingpin are great ideas. I would also like to see the punisher keep popping up every now and then as a reocurring character, have him taking out some of the kingpins guys.
