Well, I guess I have received enough emails concerning the Spider-Man 3 rumors that are floating around the web that I should put together an article about it as the cat may have been let out of the bag… and I stress “may.”
The rumor mill began churning over at FreezeDriedMovies this morning as they claim to have the inside scoop on who will be the three villains for Spider-Man 3, and guess what… these names are no big surprise as they are the names that have been floating around since the rumors began to fly.
FDM tells us the following:
Topher Grace will play the immortal VENOM… Thomas Haden Church will in fact play SANDMAN… James Franco will play HOBGOBLIN and not the Green Goblin II (like in the comics).
The names of Venom, Sandman and Hobgoblin have been going around since the start and when you think of the cast members playing the parts I guess it makes sense, but to think of Topher grace as the villain pictured below seems a bit off, but that also may be why I am writing this article and not making the movie.
As for word from Sony, I contacted a rep about this rumor this morning looking for some sort of an official word and the response… “We are not confirming anything at this time.” Not exactly a no, and definitely not a yes, so I guess we will just have to wait and see.
