2019 is shaping up to be something of a bumper year for the MCU. Brie Larson is set to take flight as Captain Marvel in March, a little under a month before Iron Man, Captain America et al. attempt to undo the damage wrought by Thanos in Avengers: End Game, and there's even talk that Marvel Studios could begin planning the arrival of the X-Men and Fantastic Four this year too.
All in all, there's a lot for the House of Ideas to juggle this year, but one film that potentially bears the most responsibility of them all (pun intended) is Spider-Man: Far From Home, the first entry in the MCU's highly anticipated fourth phase and a project that will strike the tone for the franchise going forward.
Jon Watts' follow-up to Spider-Man: Homecoming is perhaps the year's worst kept secret, but the sequel still looks set to pack plenty of surprises - at least in regard to its villains. Mysterio, played by Jake Gyllenhaal in the film, is the biggest name involved, but the Elementals - or at least, a version of the Elementals - are set to feature too.
As far as villains go, they aren't exactly the most famous, but with plenty of stellar comic book story-arcs to their name, they shouldn't be written off either...
