Since 2007 Spider-Man fans have been wondering what a sequel to Spider-Man 3 would look like. Thanks to Jeffrey Henderson’s website we now have a better idea. He is an artist who worked on storyboards for Spider-Man 4 that would help Director Sam Raimi make it come alive.
It looks like the Vulture would have been the main villain of the film. Actor John Malkavitch was the leading contender to be cast for the role of Adrian Toomes. There was also talk of Anne Hathaway playing Felicia Hardy as a female Vulture.It also appears that the opening of the film would of had a montage of Spidey busting some “lesser”villains. Bruce Campbell would of been Mysterio, which is all sorts of awesome. I would love a montage of these villains in future film. IO9 has a couple quotes from Henderson about this idea.
a montage of 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.”
Henderson then talks about the reason Raimi and the crew wanted the Vulture for the main villain.
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.”
So what do you think of the storyboards and the idea of the film? Are you glad it was never made?
