"Spider-Man 4" Casting, Villain and More

Posted: September 6th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Spider-Man 4" Casting, Villain and MoreSubmit Comment
Recently, we have been hit with lots of "Spider-Man" news, including rumors about the casting for the fourth installment and a possible Venom spin-off movie. Now, DeadlineHollywoodDaily has received word from its sources that both Tobey Maguire and director Sam Raimi will be returning to the franchise.

This news is only a few weeks old, since Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal was previously looking to replace Maguire in case the star of the first three films decided not to return. "She was looking around to cover herself because Sony wanted him badly and Tobey wasn't sure he wanted to do it," an insider explained.

And Mary Jane Watson will be coming back as well. If Kirsten Dunst decided to reprise her role, Sony would be glad to have her. "Sony would never recast her."

And don't expect the fourth film to be dark like "The Dark Knight" or even "Spider-Man 3." "Sam Raimi made the first serious superhero movie, and others followed," said the source. "The difference between Spider-Man and Batman is that Batman is duelling with a dark side of himself, and that's not what Peter Parker's struggle is. Peter Parker has no dark side himself. In Spider-Man 3 it was the black costume. Peter Parker's struggle is about sacrifice."

The source added that the studio is still choosing the villain, but "once you find out who the villain is, you'll know who's playing it." That should lead to speculation that Dylan Baker's character of Dr. Curt Connors will ultimately turn into The Lizard as he did in the comic books. There's one other character that's been set up but is a real longshot -- Daniel Gillies, who plays John Jameson, the astronaut fiance of Mary Jane in "Spider-Man 2." In the comics he becomes the villain Man-Wolf. Raimi has said in the past that he wants the best actors to play the villains in the movie, not necessarily the most famous.

And regarding the rumor that "Spider-Man 4" and "Spider-Man 5" may be shot simultaneously is looking more and more likely. It is cost effective and "it wasn't so easy to get everybody back together."

"Sam Raimi made the first serious superhero movie, and others followed," That was hilarious to read.

He made the first good adaptation, not serious... I hope it'll be the lezard ! Or Vulture, with Ben Kingsley ^^

They say that Jim Carrey might be playing Carnage in Spider-Man 4. Can anyone tell me if that's true?
