The success of Winter Soldier makes a follow-up certain, and the return of both directors, as well as the franchise’s writers, has fans excited for what comes next. Discussing those who didn’t make the cut, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely says it isn’t too hard to implement Batroc the Leaper, but someone like MODOK might prove a little more difficult. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, MODOK fought Captain America on numerous occasions over the decades. A mutated scientist who once worked for the organization Advanced Idea Mechanics, or AIM, MODOK became one of the group’s most potent weapons and its occasional leader. His name is an acronym for “Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing.” The likelihood of seeing Peter Dinklage play the villain remains slim, but as long as hope is alive, you never know.
