Sam Raimi Discusses Spider-Man 4 Villains

spider man 4 morbius Sam Raimi Discusses Spider Man 4 Villains

Speculation on who Peter Parker’s alter ego would be duking it out with began getting a lot of attention at the top of the year when Raimi revealed his interest in the character of Morbius back in January. With the popularity of vampires in all forms of media these days and expectations of a darker and grittier Spidey adventure the next time around, this rumor was believable.

On top of that, a story for Morbius would fit perfect into the established franchise as Dr. Michael Morbius has many connections and similarities with Dr. Curt Connors (The Lizard) who has already been introduced in the franchise and who played a key role in the last film. The Lizard is an obvious choice of one of the next villains and that made the idea of Morbius being the featured villain of Spider-Man 4 even more plausable.

Eventually, the Morbius rumors were shot down in June when Raimi confirmed that the villain was still being worked on at the point, revealing only that fans will appreciate their selection as the character “will be a big part of New York.”

We heard director Sam Raimi wanted Bruce Campbell back as they’re great friends with a long history. Campbell of course had cameo roles in all three Spider-Man flicks and it made sense to have him guest star again. But what if he played more than a cameo role this time around? What if he played a villain?

  1. Anne Hathaway as The Black Cat now that is hot and should happen, The Rhino Just as a Cameo done by Kevin Durand Just as The Wild Hogs Film Version, Matt Matthew Dillon as Electro Just as a Combination of Carl Peterson From You, Me and Dupree and Patrick (Pat) Healy from Something about Mary and Trip Murphy from Herbie: Fully Loaded. Now For Main Villain I’m thinking Kraven The Hunter or Mysterio and their Cast Chioces are Rusell Crowe,Gerard Butler and for Mysterio I’m thinking Ioan Gruddford and Jeff Goldblum. and for Tombstone The Rock Dwayne Johnson, Wesley Snipes,Samuel L Jackson [if he is not so busy with The Iron Man Trilogy] and for Hammerhead it should be Dominic West.

  2. Guys, please listen. The date is January 12 of the year 2013. It said that they cancelled Spiderman 4 in around 2011. If anyone knows about a Sam Raimi Spiderman 4 especially now, then tell everyone you know about it. If they tell everyone, then people will not lose hope in Sam Raimi. The Amazing Spiderman sucked. Bring back the true director of Spiderman. Please do not forget this.

    • I agree! Amazing Spider-Man sucked! I want to see Sam raimi Spider-Man 4

  3. Carnage, Electro, and Black Cat. That would be awesome to watch.

  4. I would have put the Lizzard and Carnage in it. I think it would be good too if the main villain would be The Lizzard, and in the end the actual final battle with Carnage. Maybe that Peter actually needs Connors his help to figure out how to defeat the symbiote (Carnage), like he asked him what Venom actually was. So if they would battle it out and then finally get an andidote for Connors. And then they can together figure out a way to defeat Carnage in the end. Also the born of Carnage would be good if a piece of the symbiote in Spiderman 3 didnt get fully destroyed. And then it would have ran into Cletus Cassady and would have turned him into Carnage. Tobey Maguire will always be my Spiderman and not Andrew Garfield. And I know it will probably never happen because there is already a new Spiderman with Andrew Garfield, but I just like to share my thoughts.

    • even i agree pls bring back the sami n the tobey maguir as parkar n the mj n other characters as before in the spiderman 1,2n3

  5. my idea for villain(s) for spiderman 4 is the lizard and having the black cat
    the idea for the other villain was carnage,vulture,kraven,mysterio,electro,morbius,scorpion,or rhino
