When Sam Raimi and Columbia Pictures began to look
for the next Spider-Man villain, most were hoping for Venom [I
know I was]. In what seemed like a sudden surge of disappointment, we heard
the news that Peter Parker would have to take on Sandman. Yes, I was first
disappointed, but then I thought about how cool the sand effects could be
and decided to let it go.
Now it seems that Sam Raimi could not let it go, and he still wants to have
two villains. Actually, he had wanted two villains for Spider-Man 2,
but couldn't get the go. This time, it actually looks like he may pull it
off. So is it Venom? No! Wha?
Hobgoblin for Spider-Man 3
While it is unofficial news as of now, it seems
that Harry Osborn may be coming back as the Hobgoblin. If you remember at
the end of Spider-Man 2, where the story of the Hobgoblin begins,
we encounter Harry as he discovers one of his father's secret Green Goblin
lairs. Actually, Harry then becomes the ULTIMATE Hobgoblin. The original
Hobgoblin is actually Roderick Kingsley, a man who suffered multiple defeats
not only from Spider-Man but from various enemies. I guess for the films
sake, we will skip the Hobgoblin and go right into the Ultimate Hobgoblin
I can't be disappointed with the latest scoop, as the 2nd Green Goblin was my second choice. But I guess we are skipping this phase with Harry also.
