Now that Spider-Man 3 is behind us, Sam Raimi has once again popped up to discuss the franchise and the possibility of a fourth installment.
Spider-Man 4 Villains Come First with Raimi
When you think of another installment you must also think who your next villains should be. During an interview with MTV, Sam Raimi admits that he doesn't have to be the one to create another Spider-Man installment. That doesn't, however, mean he hasn't been thinking about it.
Either way, if this tangled web does still involve the filmmaker, Raimi has been busy brainstorming about the villains he'd like to get into the next flick. "I would love to see Electro, Vulture, maybe the Sinister Six as a team," he said.
Those three possibilities wouldn't necessarily cancel each other out. Since both were founding members of the Six, the Soviet supervillain and high-flying supergenius could appear in the next flick, be teamed with a returning Doctor Octopus and Sandman and form a supergroup to also introduce Mysterio and Kraven the Hunter.
Whether that story line works out or not, Raimi hopes to finally reward Dylan Baker's patience with a villainous payoff similar to what Franco enjoyed in "3." "I love Dylan Baker as a person, and I really like the character he is developing," the filmmaker said of Dr. Curt Connors, Parker's one-armed, screen-time-challenged professor in the first three flicks.
No matter what happens, I hope both Sony and Raimi learned their lesson on why not to use too many villains. If the Sinister Six can develop as one in the next installment, that might work.
