Sam Raimi Discusses Spider-Man 4 Villains

Published 6 years ago by , Updated February 15th, 2014 at 4:27 pm,

The Spider-Man 4 rumors got very interesting for Bruce Campbell fans last month as he said he’ll be back for the next movie and that he’ll have a “major part” in the film, but he did not know who that was or what it meant at the time. Online discussion from the fans pointed towards Mysterio as a potential character for Campbell to play but many also think that it could be a little extreme for the fishbowl-wearing character to be a main villain for the live-action Spider-Man.

So, where does that leave us?

The Lizard is a high possibility for the obvious reasons of his introduction and development in the movies so far. Campbell could play a villain but we have no idea who and we know Morbius doesn’t seem to likely a choice. from the interview, Carnage seems out of the question and since they messed up Venom last time around, I wouldn’t expect him to return until Spider-Man 5 which could be a restart of the franchise.

Then again, the series so far does do a good job of tying each movie to the previous so perhaps the symbiote is still lurking around looking for a new host.

What villain(s) do you think will and/or should be featured in Spider-Man 4?

  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
