Mary Jane In, Morbius Out of Spidey 4, Says Producer

18 Comments

Those hoping to see Spider-Man battling the living vampire in his latest outing (his fourth, in case you’re not keeping track) should stop hoping right now. Or so says Spider-Man producer Todd Black, who tells the New York Post that Morbius will not be the latest sequel’s villain, and instead the villain will be very tied in with the city of New York. Hmm, who could that be? Also, Black all but confirms that Kristen Dunst will return as Mary Jane despite lots of rumors (and dare I say it, hope?) to the contrary.

More bullet points from the NYP straight from Black’s mouth:

- Besides no Morbius, forget a wedding between MJ and Peter.

- The villain has not been decided yet, but according to Black, he will be “a big part of New York.” (Emphasis mine.)

So, the villain will be very New York, and will be big? Obviously he’s either hinting at the Kingpin, or it’s all just one big coincidence. The NYP also suggests that it could be Kraven the Hunter, but there’s no ties to New York there.

Sam Raimi returns to direct “Spider-Man 4″, which is expected to commence shooting early next year.

Below: When it comes to eyeliner, the Kingpin could use some practice.

    WOAH! Sorry Shelby Cherry… It’s a movie, not a TV series! Everybody agrees that there was too many caracters plot in the third one. You wrote about 50! Keep it simple. I personnaly think that the Dr Connors/Lizard is the obvious choice. He’s more than a teacher for Peter, he’s a friend. But, when he changes into the Lizard and become a menace for the entire city, everybody want to kill it… Except Spidey! Than, the city find someone else to do the job, let’s say Kaven, and he doesn’t like Spiderman interference… Not one bit! They become enemies!

    SM4 should be Lizard,Kraven and BlackCat.The synopsis:”Kraven’s Last Hunt”/”Manspider”.Save Carnage for SM5 “Maximum Carnage/Return of Venom”. Morbius and Man Wolf can have short parts in SM5 as anti-hero-villian/allies for Spider-Man that help Spider-Man figure out how to defeat Carnage and Venom utilizing ManWolf’s Stone. The last key would have to be Venom allying with Spidey after Carnage kills Gwen Stacey. SM6 should be the Sinister Six, with a build up of back stories for their development beginning with SM4 & SM5. Allies for Spidey in SM6 should be The Prowler and SandMan. Sinister Six members should be Hobgoblin,Mysterio,Vulture,Scorpion,Shocker,and Electro(who replaces SandMan who was forced into membership through blackmail).
