Where's Kraven

Kraven would be a much more clever villain than the others, but since they've been building up Connors with cameos, I'll have to go with The Lizard

Since this is pretty much going to happen regardless, and since it's the first movie so they have to do Spiderman's origins again, I think they should really just focus on one villain so it doesn't fall into the typical superhero pitfall of trying to cram too much shit in to please the fanboys.

Gotta go Old Skool

If you're going to revamp, can't go wrong with Spidey's first major villian.

I thought the villiain was the producers....

...since they decided to re-make something that didn't need re-making.

They are re-doing his origin, in both veins of Spidey lore, marvel and ultimate universe Green Goblin and Doc Ock have been in the center of his origin.

I have always said if they had done a Spidey 4, the villains should be Lizard and Scorpion. (Lizard because it was Dylan Baker's time, and Scorpion because his storyline would actually involve JJ Jameson in the plot and not regulate him to comic relief).

But since this is a reboot, I largely don't care. I voted for Rhino, because why not?

I WENT WITH ELECTRO...

but I'd like to see him and maybe Rhino or Scorpion. Lizard isn't a good enough villian to hold down a movie by himself so maybe have Kraven hunting him and Spidey has to stop Kraven from killing Lizard so he can save Dr. Conners but Lizard wants to kill Spidey as well. We've already seen Goblin and Doc Ock so lets see something new first.

I voted for Electro--someone we haven't seen on screen yet who could pose a threat in battle to Spidey. I'd like to see Electro paired with a devious side villain like Chameleon.

I think Carnage would be pretty awesome. It would be a heck of a lot better than the Venom storyline from the third Spiderman or Spiderman becoming Dark Spiderman. I've always liked Carnage as a character because he is the complete opposite of Spiderman, sort of like Batman and Joker. I think that would be a great way to go with this new film, and I can only hope they don't do another origin story. I think we're all pretty tired of the origin story by now.

You know what would really make me laugh? If the villain was The Jackal, and the whole movie was based on the Clone Saga. That would be hilarious!

I think carnage would make for a nice fit.While peter parker slowly evolves into spiderman another kid who slowly is crawling down a dark path towards becoming a serial killer has also been going through some changes.

Then again it could be worse. They could have mysterio be a spanish and hire wwe rey mysterio to fill the part.

If we're going the way of the reboot on this one, lets at least do it right this time. Raimi did great things with the first 2 films, but the one fatal mistake can finally be corrected.

Bring back green goblin, and have Spidey accidentally break her neck and kill her in a climactic rescue attempt. Just like it was in the comics - that is a character defining moment for Spidey.

We've got Stacy cast already, so I'm really crossing my fingers they go this route this time.

Agree with the death of Gwen Stacy is a pivotal moment in Spideys development. However if they are using material from the Ultimate Spidey universe then Carnage is the one that kill Stacey, pretty horrifically too I might add.

I'd follow Nolan's Batman as a model

Start with a villain we haven't seen first and at the end we're introduced to Harry Osborne/Green Goblin. Then, movie 2 we get Green Goblin and maybe a smaller, secondary villain: Vulture or whoever.

I voted for The Lizard though because I've been waiting since movie 2 to see Doc Connors change.

Shocker

I think shocker was an underrated villian. With the CGI they could use, I think it would be fun to see him on screen blowing stuff up. But we all know it's gonna be Goblin again.

s ay what you want about the reboot...

but the way Spiderman 4 was looking would have been trash. Malcovich as Vulture. though i think he would be best to play the part, Vulture is perhaps the WORST spiderman villian. and they were going to have a new villian called VULTRESE played by Anne Hathaway. Come on people, would you have rathered that than a reboot?

I'm still a believer that this reboot is one of the most unnecessary things ever, but since it's happening no matter what I'll try to remain at least neutral.
And maybe I'm remembering this wrong or maybe it's changed since then, but I recall reading that the budget for this movie is going to be significantly less than the previous movies. If that's the case, a lot of the villains listed above seem like they would be quite expensive to pull off.

I'd rather see a villian we haven't seen yet, but I wouldn't mind seeing Venom again in this new reboot. I voted for The Lizard. Hopefully for sequels, if there are I would like to see Vulture, Venom, and Carnage.

Doc Ock

For the above I chose Doctor Octopus because he was Spidey's main villain when I was growing up. But I'd really like to have Professor Warren as the Jackal in the next film. I always like that storyline of the professor's unhealthy obsession with Gwen Stacy, clones & Carrion. It could easily fill a trilogy. Also I preferred Gwen to Mary Jane as Pete's girl.

Kraven/Lizard

Since this is a reboot, I do not know whether asking for the Lizard is the best choice at present time; but, before the reboot was even mentioned I always hoped that Kraven and Lizard would be in the same movie together. To me, if you have two villains in a movie they have to tie into one another. Have Kraven track down the Lizard for sport because he has been killing people would be a good way to go about it, thereby having Spiderman protect the Lizard as he would eventually know it is

Sadly, I'm with Antarius. The other flicks sucked so badly that I don't want to see another installment and give a damn about the new villain. Sorry, Spidey!

Oh please, you only get a pass on Spidey-bashing with the third film. The first 2 are critically acclaimed and paved new way for all of the fantastic superhero films to follow it by sparking new interest and letting the studios know the fanbase and money was there for really well made comic-adaptations.

No dice... Iron Man and the Edward Norton Hulk are much better than any of the spidey flicks. Spidey 2 was the best of the 3 and the two movies mentioned above are much better.

LMAO! God most of the people below sound like little babies throwing tantrums. "No! I don't want to see a new Spider-Man movie! I'm going to ride my bike instead!" Change your diapers.

I'm hoping for the Lizard. I'd love to see more emotionally motivated villains this time around to correct many of the errors by Raimi.

While I would love to finally see the Lizard, he is way too powerful of a villain for this young Spidey to take on. Plus they should introduce Doc Conners in this one and then bring the Lizard in the sequels. The old trilogy did a great job of setting up the Lizard story but they never went through with it which is a shame. I think they should go with lesser villains like Shocker or Mysterio. They are still dangerous people but not on the level of Carnage and Lizard. Young Spidey needs some

p.s. At this point I could care less about this reboot. Nothing about it has interested me. I can't even say that I would want a Spidey 4 instead because Raimi completely f-up the third one. The third film was so terrible, it was even worse than Xmen 3
