Sure Spider-Man 4‘s production has been delayed, but that doesn’t mean that rumors from the project can’t leak and then be confirmed. So here we go!
John Malkovich will be playing villain role as The Vulture, and this has been confirmed, verified and validated by the man himself.
While speaking to an Italian sports show (WTF?) Quelli Che il Calcio, Mr. Malkovich was asked flat out about the rumor that he was in the next Spider-Man project as the Vulture; at which point he didn’t deny, and then confirmed so as fact by stating that he’s awaiting the final script.
The current hang-up on production will sound very familiar since yet again Sam Raimi is battling with Sony over the script form, and villain details. Great! Another Venom situation huh? Maybe Sony thinks that 4 villains need to be in part 4…jeez! So what does this all mean for Anne Hathaway as Felicia Hardy aka Black Cat? Now they’re talking about a new made up character “The Vulturess”…oh hell!
