A new nemesis for Spidey has been announced but the not say what villian he will play. Thomas Haden Church has been cast

Villain announced for 'Spider-Man 3'

Church is the Spider-Man 3 Nemesis!

I'll have to think who he will play. Anyone with thoughts on his character?

Thanks for posting that Dale...surprising announcement this early in the game, even if they didn't reveal the character he's playing yet.  From what I've been reading around the net this morning, it seems like most people are feeling he'll be playing either Venom or Sandman.  It would be interesting to see Sandman introduced into the movie world, although whether or not he's a "big enough" baddie to carry a movie would yet to be seen.  With the ending of Spidey 2, I was almost certain we'd be seeing some form of the Goblin in the next movie (with Harry), but perhaps they'll draw that out a little more, or it will be a dual villain type of thing.  Of course, Dr. Conners was introduced as well, so there is always the possibility of Lizard as well.  Of course, then that's 3 villains, and I don't really see that happening.  Anyways, its always nice to get a little bit of news during this longer lull between movies, can't wait to see my favorite superhero hit the big screen again.  Lots of rumors swirling around on this movie early on...ranging from GG2, Hobgoblin, Venom, Black Cat, Lizard, Sandman, and even Man Wolf!  Speculation is running wild it seems :).

I think there will be at least 2 villains in the next one.  It sounded like on the DVD extras they wanted to do 2 villains for the last one but opted for one instead.

The dumb guy from "Wings" and "Sideways"?   ::)

I hate that guy...  >:(


I'll guess he's going to be some villian who will make me hate this movie, just like Tommy Lee Jones ruined the Bat-Franchise for me... well, actually a LOT of things in that 3rd Batman movie ruined it for me (and everyone else).  :P

I've heard that the Black Cat is supposed to be in 3 as well.  They had a bit on AICN (I think) from an actress who said she hopes to play a "blonde, buxom villain" in Spidey 3.

I sure hope they don't do Venom.  How will the story make any sense w/o sending Spidey into space to meet the symbiote?

Were gonna need a spoiler thread for Spidey-3 cause I am a venomholic.

I have 3 huge commisioned drawings of venom/carnage on my wall based on comic covers. I have a mess of venom figs, etc etc.

YAY! :D ;D :D ;D

Easy.  Show a flashback with JJ Jameson's astronaut son and have the symbiote stow away aboard his shuttle.  Not comic book accurate, but it works.
Common sense isn't so common

I was reading one of those links...

This I have to say to Sam Raimi:

If you make Venom a woman, even after you brought Eddie Brock into the mix, so help me god, you'll use a very big fan.

I HATE the Black Cat. Hopefully they do Vulture or Scorpion.

If they want to do two villians, wait and do Venom and Carnage. ;D

Eric Foreman?

Thats what I thought when I was told about this.

I can't imagine who he would be though..

As far as any rumors that i've heard about we know we're getting some sort of harry goblin.. i'm not sure if he'll be a green or hob.. who knows how they will reinterpret things..

But there are major rumors and statments about the Sandman. Mostly of a lot of concept art for him and such. Sandman isn't my favorite, but is still cool. Although he probably won't look too real. but who knows with the advancements in effects..

Aside from the goblin.. I'd almost expect the Lizard to be in it. Doc Connors was mentioned in the first movie, and even had a bit role in the second film, so I see it as very likely.

I'd like to see the Vulture, but considering the baddies we already saw spiderman go up against, i think he isn't tough enough.
Electro and Mysterio would be pretty cool.
Scorpion might be cool too, but he's basically a lesser doc ock..to me anyway..
Kraven.. i dunno..

It would be cool if they did a Sinister Six thing.. but that'd have to be it's own movie.

I don't know why everyone wants Venom and Carnage to team up on spidey.. as I recall it they are enemies.. and Venom has helped spidey to defeat Carnage before..

Venom and Carnage kinda tag teamed on webhead, but eventually they got at each others throats, and they are enemies. Carnage has a brain fettish...want's to eat Venom and Spidey's brains and hearts. :'(
