It is safe to assume that the plot details and casting for Sony’s upcoming comic adventure Spider-Man 4 will not be kept secret for too much longer, as the film’s principal shoot is right around the corner. But we’re remaining skeptical as the rumor-mill keeps churning. Today, the fine folks at MarketSaw claim that they’ve got the scoop on Spidey’s upcoming foes, er, foe.
Per their report, a production insider has confirmed that the fourth film in the Spider-Man franchise will only have one villain, and that it will be The Lizard. Last week, UGO reported that actor Dylan Baker, who previously played Dr. Curt Connors (who notoriously becomes The Lizard), has gotten a call from Sam Raimi about the project. So logic points to this rumor possibly being true. For now, we’re remaining skeptical until we get something official from the folks at Sony. That said, the prospect of a lean, focused Spider-Man film with a single villain is enticing.
