All over the Net for the past few hours has been a Movieline report that John Malkovich and Anne Hathaway are being sought to play the villains in Sam Raimi’s upcoming fourth “Spider-Man” film.
Strange though is that Malkovich is wanted for The Vulture, an elderly crook who uses a suit to fly through the air on wings that can be used as weapons.
What’s extra confusing though is that Hathaway is wanted for the character of Felicia Hardy who will NOT transform into the thief ‘Black Cat’ but rather a new superpowered figure called the Vulturess. Yep, father/daughter villains.
Finally the report cites that Curt Connors won’t be turning into The Lizard as the studio “can’t bring themselves to sign off on such an odd-looking enemy”.
Of course rampant casting rumors on the project are swirling right now and none of them are confirmed so take all this as pure rumor for now.
