There is one Marvel Cinematic Universe villain who is keen to come back.
Sam Rockwell had played the character of Iron-Man 2 villain Justin Hammer. He then reprised the role in a one-shot “All Hail the King” and Hammer also got a mention in the Netflix series Marvel’s Luke Cage. However, he wishes to get another chance at portraying the enemy of Tony Stark.
“Of course!” Rockwell told The Hollywood Reporter. “I have some great buddies in that franchise. Jeremy Renner is a good friend of mine, and I am pals with Chris Evans and Mark Ruffalo. Robert [Downey Jr.] is always fun. Would love to get me and Clark [Gregg] back in that franchise. That would be a lot of fun. “
There is one option, leading to Armor Wars, which might provide Rockwell the chance to make a comeback.
Rockwell talked about Clark Gregg (SHIELD’s Agent Phil Coulson) Coulson was the binding factor for the initial MCU movies. He died in The Avengers, but, was brought back to life and has been continuing the battle of good vs. bad in the MCU show Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.
But, the Avengers have no idea about his being alive, and as Gregg earlier stated, they might never find out.
“It is an ever-present theme,” Gregg says. “It’s really touching to me how much the fans stay obsessed with the idea of when the Avengers are going to learn Coulson’s alive. It’s something that…I don’t know; I find that so touching! I think the Avengers have moved on; they’re busy.
“But also I think it’s a great credit to the show and the characters and the actors who brought these characters to life and to our production team, to Mark Kolpack’s visual effects and to the great writing of our writers, Jed [Whedon], Mo [Tancharoen] and Jeff [Bell], because I think there’s a growing number of people who kind of feel like this feels like a part of that bigger world and they want to see the various worlds – whether it’s the incredible Netflix world of New York, they just want at some point feel that this is one big story, which I still believe it is. And you know, when the time is right, who knows?”
