The Villain For Spider-Man 4 Is the Lizard..And the Lizard Only?
While reviewing comic book-related news, I came across an article on Latinoreview.com involving the most current and highly talked about comic book sequel..."Spider-Man 4."
According to a "reliable source" it seems the Lizard may not just be the villain in Spider-Man 4, but he'll be the only villain present in the sequel.
It has been in discussion for weeks as to who the villain or villains would be in the sequel. With the recent update of Dylan Barker returning for the role of Dr. Curt Connors, everyone speculated that this means The Lizard would finally get some screen time.
The site goes a bit further by stating not only will the villain be the Lizard, but if the reliable source is correct, he'll be the only one to appear in the film.
"Jim here. In what must be exclusives week at MarketSaw, we get a quick update on SPIDER-MAN 4 which of course is getting lensed in stereoscopic 3D.
We all pretty much knew that either The Lizard and/or Carnage would be in this movie and now we have word that it will be The Lizard ONLY. No multiple villains. Again, strong source here. Of course, things could change - but it is highly doubtful.
I couldn't be happier! SPIDER-MAN 3 suffered from too many story lines in my mind and with only one villain, Sam Raimi can focus on the character development and really build Dr. Curt Connors / The Lizard the way it should be. If there are too many bad guys you lose the connection - it is a good thing to almost feel bad for them when they lose (or win as the case may be). It is very hard to develop two villains within the same movie and establish that honest mind meld with them."
Whispers68: Do not shoot the messenger, I'm only reporting comic book related news so if this turns out to be just another movie rumor that swirls around during casting, put it off as such. But if this is true, I think Raimi would be on the correct path of having only one main villain.
