The year 2022 gave us a slew of memorable villains in movies and on TV shows, from larger-than-life comic book foes like Namor from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, to the delightfully unhinged Pearl from Pearl, to the reality-jumping Jobu Tupaki from Everything Everywhere All at Once.
Many of them are memorable because of one shocking moment in their stories. Often, these are horrific acts of violence that show exactly what they're capable of. Other times, the moment is shocking because it completely upends what the audience thought about the character. Either way, these are some of the most shocking villain moments from 2022 that we'll be thinking about for years to come.
