This detail was revealed by DanielRPK, that Mr. Sinister is the top choice to step into the realm of superheroes. As his name suggests, Mr. Sinister is a highly skilled supervillain in the comics whose real name is Nathaniel Essex and is exceptionally interested in mutants and their abilities.

His transformation from Nathaniel Essex to Mr. Sinister was influenced by another mutant Apocalypse aka En Sabah Nur, who enhanced the abilities and powers of Nathaniel, making him the most iconic foe in the X-Men universe. Following his terrifying transformation, and face-offs with major characters like Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Wolverine, Mr. Sinister also became the leader of a mutant tracker group The Marauders.

Even though Marvel hasn’t made it official that Mr. Sinister will be the main antagonist, the idea of it has made fans even more excited about the upcoming X-Men film in the MCU. The existence of Ms. Marvel aka Kamala Khan hints that mutant genes are still present in the MCU, and this would make Mr. Sinister’s debut easier in the MCU X-Men reboot, as the supervillain himself is a genetic scientist fanatical about understanding mutant biology.

Along with Mister Sinister, another formidable adversary who is rumored to be entering the superhero world after Jonathan Majors’ firing is Doctor Doom. However, Marvel has yet to officially confirm which bad guy has been finalized to lead the evil in the upcoming and highly anticipated X-Men film.

The scooper also revealed that Kang the Conqueror will reportedly remain the main villain for Avengers 5 and 6 movies. Jonathan Majors, who previously played the role was fired amid his legal battle and trials, and now fans are speculating which actor would be cast in the role if Kang’s existence happens to be true.
