Spider-Man 4 Villains and Plot Leaked Online

Could this be true? Have the Spider Man 4 Villains and Plot be exposed at such an early date? Rumor has it that a certain RED symbiote will grace the silver screen...

Everyone wants to know who the Villains will be in Spider Man 4.

Mania.com is reporting an anonymous Maniac sent in link from a movie database hosted by Hoyts Cinemas in Australia. The database lists 'Spider-Man 4' as "coming soon" and even provides a plot synopsis for the movie:

Peter Parker now faces a more greater threat. After a man is accidentally killed in an electrical power outage; a mass murderer has bonded with a symbiote. Thus wreaking havoc as Peter faces this red rampage, as well as an electrifying madman.

Well, that certainly sounds like Carnage and Electro.

However, we have to say this info sounds extremely dubious for several reasons. First of all, why this plot summary would surface first on an Australian Cinema chain site is beyond us. Add to that the fact that the author of the summary is extremely grammar-challenged, with run-on sentences and awkward redundancies like "a more greater threat".

So, however that info got into the Hoyts system. We're guessing someone at Hoyts picked up on fan chatter found on message boards over the past two years. Either that or someone has found a way to update Hoyts' database through surreptitious means. And, of course, Sam Raimi said just last week that he was still working on the basic storyline and contemplating which villain (or villains) he might use.

So, file this rumor under "highly doubtful".

Sony really needs to keep this movie a one or maybe two villain movie, if they choose to overload it then that unfortunately is proof the the Spider Man franchise would be following in the footsteps of the first run of The Batman franchise, and we all know how that turned out.

Fake.
OriginalPhysco - 3/24/2009, 3:41 PM
Good news, but i think its fake
Justadjust - 3/24/2009, 3:44 PM
You know, everyone said the same thing about the x-men origins review (about sounding fake and bad grammar).
and we all know where that went;)

I still believe that we will never see carnage on film. If we do, he has the potential to be extremely campy. With this whole "No rated R" debacle (yes I know its the WB and not Sony), It would be VERY dificult to stay to the material. Don't get me wrong, I would LOVE to see Carnage, its just unlikely.

And Carnage and Electro? They need to stop using villians that are polar opposites. Carnage would dominate the movie, leaving no place for Electro. The last thing we need is a repeat of SM-3

Plus it would be hard to believe that with all the setup of the Lizard, that they wouldn't use him as one of the villians.
Justadjust - 3/24/2009, 4:08 PM
It just hit me... Earle Haley/Kovacs = Cletus Kassidy!!
F@@ckin Identical... almost scarey!!
loganaspatch - 3/24/2009, 5:36 PM
i hope not i really want to see lizard. however in that old comic book fomula, good vs 2 bad guys 1 bad guy has a change of heart and helps the good guy.. those symbiote's weakness is sound and eletrical currents so they could exist in the same movie .. js
ThisFan - 3/24/2009, 8:27 PM
that is so fake but if the 1% chance of it being true then noooooooooooooooooooooooooo that will be as bad as spider-man 3
animeex - 3/24/2009, 8:35 PM
Probably fake. Not that the other villains were easy, but when it comes to Venom or Carnage they were never easy in the books. They should have their own movie or both of them in one long movie. Kraven and the Lizard are still my picks.
HarrisonBergeron - 3/24/2009, 8:37 PM
No way it is true, the powers that be have to understand that SM3 was a failure and why. They would not make the same mistakes twice.

Betty - 3/24/2009, 8:46 PM
Electro isnt even that cool of a villain. as cool as the scorpion or vulture. or anything during the larson years.
rkeyes - 3/24/2009, 8:52 PM
Fake, Carnage will not be featured in Spidey 4 or 5.
fatheck - 3/24/2009, 8:54 PM
lizard would be the next step i think but i thought that after spiderman 2 so what the hell do i know but it still needs to be done
wolverine81 - 3/24/2009, 9:11 PM
Total agreement just some early twist ur drawers rumors, but how friggin sweet would that be to see carnage on the big screen. My only hope would be that they get the right actor (Jackie Earle Haley) to play him. Please Please Please do him more justice than venom, im sorry but venom was a weak character in spiderman 3.
dbzfan - 3/24/2009, 9:33 PM
I'm glad it's fake. Because they ruined my favorite Spider-man character, Venom. So, if they put in carnage it will be twice as bad.
Metalhead82 - 3/24/2009, 9:37 PM
Of course its fake... lizard is the next villain, but somehow i still believe that venom didnt die in the last movie. he just vanished i think venom could still comeback.
FiltronoVendicatore - 3/24/2009, 10:23 PM
Bring Venom back--do him justice (if anything, Thomas Haden Church should have been Venom)--and transition into Lizard. They've teased Lizard long enough. Do it already. Do it. Do it. Come on. Do it.
zinext - 3/24/2009, 10:28 PM
That is so fake its ridiculous. There is no way a story line with carnage and electro would mesh, both of them are WAY to powerful to go at spidy at once in 1 movie, also breaking out carnage early would ruin the franchise, witch i wrote about in an editorial months ago.
DarkAvengers - 3/24/2009, 10:39 PM
For the last time... DO NOT PUT TWO [frick]ING VILLIANS IN ONE MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You stupid, money grubbing studio execs!!!!
Unmasked - 3/24/2009, 11:14 PM
I hate to say this about Spider-man, but I will.

This 4th movie has a lot riding on it. If they screw
up, thats it. No more Spider-man for a long while.
So Sam be smart, take your time. If you do that you'll be fine.
TheMyth - 3/24/2009, 11:24 PM
It definitely seems very fake, but I think Justadjust has a very good point. We said the same shit about the Weapon XI/Deadpool thing. He is also right about Jackie Earl Haley as Cletus Cassady. Good call.

Eddie Brock is dead.

While I like the idea of Electro in a movie, I still like Lizard/Kraven.
kovacs29 - 3/24/2009, 11:26 PM
I really want to be stoked about SM4 but it's tough. Has anyone seen the trailer for Sam's new horror movie??? Looks horrible. I also heard rumours of Jim Carey playing Carnage...love the guy but I'm pretty sure he's already ruined a comic book villain. I say Lizard's the way to go
SpiderBat209 - 3/24/2009, 11:47 PM
FAKE AS HELL! It's time to bring in the LIZARD, Raimi! Black Cat, too! And another cool Bruce Campbell cameo! lol jk :)
Phinehas - 3/24/2009, 11:53 PM
I would be exceptionally aggravated if they used up "ALL" of the 1st generation villians. Most were banal, only to highlight the heroes positive virtues but not showing any substance in themselves. Villians like the Lizard, Shocker, and The Scorpion ought to be considered. They are far more threatening to Spidey's life and can be further explored and developed. Anyways, thanks to the Aussie for stirring the hornet's nest. Time to sting something!

Ah, Ha! HOBGOBLIN! Jason Philip Macendale, merc for hire by a secret employer: The very much alive, Norman Osborne! Sweet. :)
BLADE4040 - 3/25/2009, 2:10 AM
One villian at a time bring someone in like Kraven the hunter. Lets get to know him before him and Spidey have their first interaction ,also began to bring Peter out of the dumps.
ThunderCougarFalconBird - 3/25/2009, 4:00 AM
My gut says fake but this could be true. Even if it's true it doesn't mean it will happen. Ideas are still being fired around (apparently) so this could just be one of many options.

I don't really care for Electro and I'm unsure about Carnage after the Venom fiasco.

My personal choice is two movies, the 1st starting with Shocker and introducing Lizard, then ending with Kraven coming to town drawn by reports of the huge reptile. The 2nd is a "who hunts who" between Lizard, Spiderman and Kraven. Spiderman knowing Lizard is his friend tries to get to him before Kraven.

If we see Carnage then for christs sake don't rush him! That was the main problem with Venom.
THEHAWK - 3/25/2009, 5:10 AM
I don't know. There is no reason to worry about the dead enemies, they all died in the comics, and were brought back. The next movie needs to be the return of Gobby, Dafoe said he'd be up to it. It happened in the comics, at one point he manipulated Krven into trying to kill Spidey, so that could set him up. And they could throw in a Lizard sub plot. Buut the movie needs tostart with Spidey fighting and beating is most dangerous foe of all, Mysterio, played by none other than Bruce Cambell! Check this link right here for more about character death and resurection.

Deaths in comics and comic book movies, why not to worry.
SPOTFACE - 3/25/2009, 5:22 AM
how the *&%&$# do they want to put carnage in there i mean they killed off venom:S
RorMachine - 3/25/2009, 6:57 AM
You wont see Carnage while Raimis at the helm because he hates that damn simbiote with a passion! He never wanted Venom in Spiderman 3 but was backed into a corner by the studio because of the fans love for the character,,theres no way hel let that happen again! Electro is a possibility but i still think it will be Lizard..i mean they have been setting him up for 3 movies..are we gonna have to wait for a fourth?
OriginalPhysco - 3/25/2009, 7:00 AM
I say Lizard, and possibly Carnage will be in the movie
Raphael193 - 3/25/2009, 7:00 AM
Can they just please remake spider-man 3? Here is a new working title for said remake, VENOM: Sorry About that Last One Folks, Here is What You Really Wanted
LastSon1027 - 3/25/2009, 7:28 AM
Well if you think about it the symbiote hates electric so they could definitely spin a nice tale with these two villains although it would result in an unlikely teaming on electro and spidey.
comicb00kguy - 3/25/2009, 7:31 AM
I don't buy this for a second. Raimi absolutely hated Venom and only included him in the third film because the studio forced him to do it (and he threw a tantrum in response by ruining Venom's appearance in the film). If he had this animosity towards Venom, why would he want to include Carnage, which is nothing but a rip-off of Venom who's nowhere near as interesting? Besides, if Carnage IS in the film, Venom would HAVE to appear to explain Carnage's origin, and to help defeat him (remember Venom doesn't believe in harming those he sees as innocent, while Carnage is a cartoonishly exaggerated killing machine). I can't see Raimi doing that.
NubaX - 3/25/2009, 8:38 AM
OH PLEASE!!!!

Its FAKE and a Waste of Time...

Its Gonna be Lizard Man and Craven!


They never really Wanted Venom to begin with...It was reported before Spiderman 3 even Came out. They just Got him Out of the Way!

Don't Expect Carnage or Venom Any Time Soon!


LizardMan and Craven are Most Likey Up Next. Shocker or Electro might even make an Appearence!

If Not This Movie...The Next One!

mutantJ - 3/25/2009, 9:20 AM
Carnage!!!! Hell yea!!! bring it on i love carnage i think its only right that they bring him in..they realy flopped wiv venom..maybe carnage can redeem this once and fo all..oh and yay electro lool kinda

Justadjust - 3/25/2009, 9:26 AM
They do not need to put the vulture in this movie. I have no need to see a villian that when he is not flying, he is using a walker. NO senior citizen villians...just playin.

Though I have always felt the vulture was on the vurge of breaking a hip if he didnt retire!

Thanks "themyth". I would rather leave the casting to Shaman, but it seemed like a perfect fit.

TucsonRican - 3/25/2009, 10:01 AM
I know he's Angel, but what about Ben Foster as Cletus Kassidy? The man can play crazy...

mutantJ - 3/25/2009, 10:09 AM
how bout no lol
im seeing Jim carrey as carnage atm
RorMachine - 3/25/2009, 10:43 AM
Foster would be a good Carnage(see 3;10 to Yuma and 30 days of night)..and lets face it, he was a piss poor Angel so who cares!
THULK - 3/25/2009, 11:07 AM
What to the Morbius villain and Black Cat? That would have been really cool to put it in a more darkside to the movie then Spiderman 5, bring in the Carnage and Lizard. Keep the action going!!!! I think Electo has no real threat to Spiderman but we will see!
