The Karate Kid franchise has its fair share of villains. In each of the first three films, Daniel LaRusso, portrayed by Ralph Macchio, somehow manages to make a new rival. Here are all the villains of The Karate Kid, The Karate Kids Part II, and The Karate Kid Part III.Johnny Lawrence
YouTubeJohnny (William Zabka) and Daniel (Ralph Macchio) face off in the final scene of “The Karate Kid.”
In Cobra Kai, Johnny Lawrence, played by William Zabka, has a redemption arc. However, in the first installment of the film franchise, the Cobra Kai team member bullies Daniel because he is romantically interested in his ex-girlfriend Ali Mills (Elisabeth Shue).
He becomes particularly violent during the Halloween dance, when Johnny beats Daniel up to the point of almost being unconscious in retaliation for pouring water on him. However, the New Jersey-native is saved by his sensei Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morita).
Johnny, however, does show good sportsmanship after he loses the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament. He hands Daniel the trophy while saying, “You’re alright LaRusso.”John Kreese

Like Johnny Lawrence, John Kreese (Martin Kove) is given more depth in Cobra Kai. His merciless teachings are explained during flashbacks that showed him serving in the Vietnam War.
However, his motivations for cruelty are not examined in the films. In the first movie, the Cobra Kai sensei encourages his students to injure Daniel during the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament. At the start of The Karate Kid Part II, he physically assaults Johnny for coming in second place. The plot of The Karate Kid Part III revolves around the veteran and his friend Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) planning ways to ensure that Daniel loses the 1985 All Valley tournament.Sato Toguchi

In The Karate Kid Part II, the audience is introduced to Sato Toguchi (Danny Kamekona). The Okinawan-based businessman was once Mr. Miyagi’s close friend and fellow karate student, but their relationship dissolved. Essentially, Miyagi expressed romantic interest in Yukie (Nobu McCarthy), who was betrothed to Sato. In response, Sato orders his former friend to engage in physical combat until one of them parishes.
Mr. Miyagi declined the challenge and instead, immigrated to the United States. Upon his return to visit his dying father, Sato insists on going through with the fight. However, the Sato’s Karate owner changes his mind after Miyagi and Daniel save him during a typhoon.Chozen Toguchi

Like Johnny Lawrence, Chozen Toguchi (Yuji Okumoto) is presented in a more sympathetic light in Cobra Kai. That being said, Sato’s nephew is violent throughout The Karate Kid Part II. He initially dislikes Daniel because of his friendship with Miyagi. However, his distaste for him intensifies when Daniel wins a bet at a bar and later uncovers that he was scamming farmers.
At the end of the movie, Chozen starts a fight with Daniel at the O-ban festival, intending to kill him. However, the New Jersey native wins the battle and asks him if he wants to “live or die, man.”
Chozen picks the latter, but Daniel ignores his request.Terry Silver
YouTubeDaniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) train together in “The Karate Kid Part III.”
In The Karate Kid Part III, Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) assists his friend John Kreese with his dojo Cobra Kai. It is revealed that following the 1984 All Valley Tournament, interest in the karate studio had taken a sharp decline, and he does not have any clients. While Kreese is vacationing in Tahiti, Silver offers martial artist Mike Barnes a lucrative business opportunity if he becomes the 1985 All Valley champion.
In the meantime, Silver tricks the teenager into believing that Kreese is dead. The businessman then manipulates him to adopt vicious martial art techniques, which proves to be detrimental to his skills and personal relationships.Mike Barnes

Throughout The Karate Kid Part III, Mike Barnes (Sean Kanan) is aggressive towards Daniel and resorts to violence to get him to sign up for the All Valley tournament. However, the New Jersey native is named that year’s champion, despite being injured by Barnes.

JAMES Bond film No Time To Die's release date has reportedly been brought forward again after Boris Johnson revealed when lockdown will end.
After the announcement that Covid restrictions will lift on June 21, it has been reported that the latest 007 film will be released in UK cinemas on September 30.5James Bond film No Time To Die's release date has been 'brought forward'Credit: PA:Press Association
Tom Linay, who is marketing company Digital Cinema Media’s Content Business Director, tweeted: "It looks like No Time To Die is no released on 30 September in the UK."
The 25th Bond film is one of the most highly anticipated films of 2021 after it was set to be released in cinemas in 2020 before the pandemic saw it pushed back to April 2021 and then October 8.
Daniel Craig's final outing as 007, has been hugely delayed and has suffered serious setbacks since development began in 2016.
The latest entry in the franchise will still be released in the United States on October 8 as planned.5The film has been delayed several times due to the pandemicCredit: Alamy
The Sun has contacted Eon for comment.
Boris revealed his roadmap for easing the country back to normality and confirmed that cinemas will re-open on May 17, with social distancing rules.
This means that fans may get the opportunity to watch the hotly anticipated film a week earlier than expected.

American actor Rami Malek was confirmed as the movie's villain, Safin, and Ana De Armas will take on the role of Paloma, a CIA agent who assists Bond on his mission.
The film is the most expensive Bond yet at £200million - and studio bosses will be keen to recoup that through box office sales.
It is far costlier than the two previous Bonds — 2015’s Spectre (£182million) and 2012’s Skyfall (£138million).
Besides the lavish locations and set-pieces, the film has been dogged by problems.5Ana De Armas will take on the role as PalomaCredit: PA:Press Association
Director Danny Boyle quit over the script in 2018 and was replaced by American Cary Fukunaga.
Filming was delayed by four more months when star Craig hurt his ankle on the set.
An explosion at Pinewood Studios, Bucks, left a crew member injured.
Filming wrapped in October 2019 and by the end of December £199.5million had been spent.5The film is the most expensive Bond yetCredit: AP:Associated Press Most read in Celebrityboss in courtSpringsteen drunk driving charges dropped after he has tequila shots in parkBRI'S MANTeen Mom Briana shares rare clip of boyfriend Javi before promoting sex toyFAMILY FEUDTeen Mom Catelynn's brother claims she got pregnant again to 'stay relevant'HOT MAMAKaty Perry hits the beach in purple swimsuit five months after giving birthEX-WIFE PARADISE!Tiger Woods’ ex Elin Nordegren sells Florida home for $28.6 millionpeen girlsMean Girls star Jonathan Bennett appears to post photo of penis on Instagram
James Bond chiefs faced agonising re-shoots of key scenes because the super spy’s technology quickly became out of date.
An insider said: “The details of the gadgets and things are all kept tightly under wraps, but everyone knows that James Bond always carries the latest kit with him.
“The problem is that some of those things were the very latest models back when they started filming.
“But by the time the movie comes out now it will look like Daniel Craig and all of the other cast members are carrying something that has been out for ages. That isn’t really the point of these deals."From James Bond to Ghostbusters - the film releases leading cinema’s 2021 comeback
