SPIDER-MAN 4 Was Set To Open With A Montage Pitting The Wall-Crawler Against Rhino, Shocker, And More

The artist responsible for all of that recently released Spider-Man 4 concept art has revealed a few new details about the scrapped movie, including the fact that it was going to be packed full of baddies...

Following the release of that Spider-Man 4 concept art yesterday, io9 reached out to Jeffrey Henderson to get some further intel about what Sam Raimi was planning for his fourth instalment in that trilogy. For starters, he confirmed that Bruce Campbell was indeed going to play Mysterio in a montage sequence which would have featured, "C and D- list villains that we knew would never be used as main antagonists: Mysterio, the Shocker, the Prowler, the old school-onesie-wearing version of the Rhino, maybe even the Stilt Man, etc." That would have been fun to see, but arguably a waste of some great Spider-Man villains who could have actually held their own in a movie given a chance to shine. 
 
As for Vulture, Henderson revealed that he would have been the main villain, and that Raimi had some cool ideas for how he should be portrayed here. "The thing we kept coming back to was that, as a character, everyone was going to dismiss the Vulture as just an old guy in a silly green suit. So we wanted to go the opposite way and really make him the most fearsome and formidable adversary that Spider-Man had faced in the series." We're actually going to get to see The Vulture in action when Spider-Man: Homecoming is released next year (if the rumours are to be believed that is), but there's no denying that Spider-Man 4 not happening feels like a shame as it clearly had potential.
