I hate it when superhero films try to cram in as many bad guys as possible. The nice thing about the original Batman was that the film focused on Batman vs. The Joker. By time we got to Batman and Robin we had like 80 villains. It sounds like Spider-Man 3 will also distract us with too many villains rather than just Venom. I guess it's good for the action figure market.
From Iwatchstuff, "In an interview with the popular hypothetical periodical iF Magazine, Spider-Man 3 producer Avi Arad confirmed that there will be four villains in the upcoming superhero film:
iF: There are four villains this time, Venom, Sandman, and Green Goblin and when is the fourth going to be revealed?
ARAD: Right we have four villains. Pretty soon [we'll reveal the fourth villain] I believe. Maybe around Comic Con we'll reveal something and the madness will begin.
With Arad declining to reveal the identity of the fourth villain, rumor and speculation has already formed about who it will be. The Lizard, Carnage, Electro and Hobgoblin are some popular possibilities, but if I may offer my suspicion, there's a reason Spidey drops the red in his costume. That's right: communism. It's real, it's dangerous, it's deadly, and it's been America's first villain since the end of the second World War. With any luck, the reason for the Gwen Stacey love triangle is because he reports that pinko Mary Jane. Her hair was getting a little too red, if you catch my meaning. And if it's not communism, it's definitely obesity."
