According to Feige, introductory movies especially pretty much demand the villain to have similar powers to the hero.
“You want to have characters that inhabit the same world when introducing a new world, a new mythology for lack of a better term,” he stated. “You want to explore that as much as you can.”
He added that it would seem too confusing to try to cram a villain’s separate origin story into the plot when they already have to introduce the hero in that same movie.
“When you’re teaching an audience about sorcerers and that reality, and you’re going to talk about the past anyway, and you’re going to get into their history anyway, much better to tie in your bad guy with that instead of laying all this groundwork of parallel dimensions and sorcery and say, by the way, a meteor hit on the other side of the world,” Feige explained. “It went under water, and this evil thing developed. What does that have to do with magic? Nothing. That’s not the way we’ve developed them up to this point.”
