Malkovich as Vulture?

12.08.2009

Could this be our first real substantial lead as to the casting of the SPIDER-MAN 4 villain? Movieline claims to have "confirmed with sources close to the film" that John Malkovich and Anne Hathaway have entered negotiations to star as the villains of the film. As they report, Malkovich (who was at one point was in negotiations to star as Green Goblin in the original film) would star as The Vulture, a golden era Spidey villain and a member of the original Sinister Six (alongside Doc Ock, Mysterio, Kraven, Sandman and Electro).

But the more interesting report is that while Hathaway would be playing the Felicia Hardy character, she won't be Black Cat. This is apparently to cut down on confusion between that character and IRON MAN 2's Black Widow and Batman villain Catwoman. She'll instead play a Vulture sidekick called The Vulturess. I checked the calendar and it's not April 1st. The reason for no Dylan Baker/Lizard as they report is that they want a villain with a human face and not just some rampaging monster. Which makes sense and would theoretically preclude Mysterio as well.

What do you think? Does this sound as ridiculous to you as it does to me?

Extra Tidbit: Vulture has long been one of Raimi's favorite Spider-Man villains (for some odd reason).

Interesting

Bringing in Vulture would be good for Raimi and Co. The last film wasn't as realistic and dramatic as the first two. Bringing in Malkovich would make it very intriguing. If Hathaway is eventually on board for number 4, i feel they'll have her play Angelica Jones a.k.a. Firestar or Jessica Drew, a.k.a Spider-Woman. Bet Dub.

I'd rather see them do justice to Venom than the bringing the boring as hell Vulture.

Oh, and Spider-Man 2 sucks. Deal with it, fanboys. You know it's true. Hahaha.

Okay

First of all, yes, Raimi wanted Ben Kingley for the Vulture in #3: he didn't want Venom and that was pushed on him by the studio. He also wanted to end the movie with Topher Grace's character becoming Venom but the studio said no, perhaps fearing that Raimi was going to use it as an excuse to pass Spiderman 4 onto somebody else. Now Malkavich is a better choice for the Vulture so things worked out IMO. As for Felicia Hardy, well, her father was a cat burglar and she herself started out as a

As for Felicia Hardy, well, her father was a cat burglar and she herself started out as a cat burglar so it isn't a stretch that she would be working with the Vulture. I suppose we could still see the Lizard this time as the actor playing him is coming back for this one but it won't be the main story and I'm okay with that.

What was the Vulture's super powers? I forgot. Picking through the trash? Sounds like a Direct To DVD. My advice is to have an army of deadites as the villians. Then just replace Spidey with Bruce Campbell as an aging Ash Williams and change the title of the film from Spiderman 4 to Evil Dead 4, then all will be right in the universe..

Vulture is a lame villian. That movie will suck. Or maybe lay an egg. Maybe they should release the film in November and they could call Hathaway the Turkey Vulture. Lame.

Sounds cool, but, if someone could help me out and I only scanned over previous posts so I apologize in advance, didn't Malkovich get offered either Green Goblin or Doc Ock and turned them down because he "didn't do those kinds of movies?"

After the third film, raimi more or less came out and apologised for it. If he is making a new one he would only make it his way. If the studio were telling him how to make it the film would set up the venom spin off or bring in carnage. There was other villians that the studio would have asked for like kraven, rhino or that emo vapire guy (since twilight is so in right now). If raimi wants the vulture i'm sure he would have a good idea on how to do it, could you imagine the set pieces of

seriously how stupid do they think we are, Dr. Conners has been in all 3 previous films, and i think he should have his do and finally become The Lizard in part 4, plain & simple.

i seriously doubt Raimi would come back for a lame villain with a sidekick, it makes no sense. Raimi went with the studio & put in Venom & it was a mistake, let him do what he wants Sony & back the fuck off.

Why even have Felicia Hardy in it if she's not going to be the Black Cat. The Vulteress? Seriously? If this is true, I've seriously lost all faith in Raimi.

Sounds like Movieline's close source must be a hobo behind a movie theater with dreams of a Vulture villain. I really don't think this is true. The vulturess has got to be the silliest thing I've ever heard. Plus, how does one confused Black Cat with Black Widow? I mean, really...

Hmm..there were The Vulturions in 80's Spider-man, a gang that took on the characteristics of Vulture, but they were easily dispatched and never seen again.

This sounds uber-lame. I love how Malcovich is being touted as the villain when he said "there are just some things as an actor you don't do" when offered the part of Norman Osborne / GG in Spidey 1. He could work in the Vulture part however if they go for the nasty, darker version seen in Marvel Knights: Spiderman.

I really hope

Really Raimi? For one, Dylan Baker has been on the sidelines waiting to portraty one of Spidey's best villains in The Lizard. This plus while it would be interesting to see Kingsley as The Vulture, Why Anne Hathaway as The Vultress? That sounds too fucking kooky and lame and really, a waste of Hathaway's time. The Black Cat has something more substantial to her at least.

This all just sounds really flimsy and I really hope it's a bullshit rumor.

It won't happen raimi is too smart to entertain the vulture with the subtle work he has done with the lizard. it will be like the first green goblin again. But hathaway would be great as felicia. Even if it is true, this is supposed to be raimis last so if it is don't expect a half hearted character like he treated venom.

Wow, I want to see the script that sold this idea. No lizard, instead we get vulture who's about as boring as they come in spiderman villians. And throw in a female sidekick just because. What if they chose another villian, possible female sidekick names:

Lizard-lady
Electro-lass
Mysterio-mistress

I like Malcovich and Hathaway, but I don't see this working.

I'm confused by the change NO ONE who's a fan of Spidey or comics in general would get her confused with Cat Women or Black Widow and as for the non fans PI$$ on them changeing to suit their tastes is part of what made Catwoman such a stinker didn't they learn their lesson with Goblin 2 on a Snow Board? Don't tinker with great characters. I like Malkovich and he kind of looks like

This kind of goes against a solo Spidey movie but, as Marvel seems to want more crossovers, why not just have Spidey vs. Hulk or Spidey vs. Wolverine. I know that sounds lame, but I'd be more interested in it at this point. This vultress stuff really sounds too stupid to actually be true.

How can you possibly have the Felicia Hardy character and not have her be Black Cat? How can you just simply make up a villain for her to be. It's supposed to be a Spider-man movie! This is ridiculous! And Anne Hathaway is a terrible choice anyway.

Well every lame villain needs an equally as lame side kick. Sandman was pretty lame so they made GG2 really lame so they would be on lame equalness. Let the lame characters keep on coming, we wouldn't want to choose popular villains that have good stories already attached to them and are actually liked by the fans.

Vulture would have worked great in cojuntion with Sandman instead of Venom on SPIDER-MAN 3, but won't work with just a side-kick type character. The rumoured plot just sounds ridiculous. I don't think it's true.

Great casting choice for Vulture but the Vulturess? Really? I'd honestly just as soon they cut her out altogether as do something that stupid and all it's going to do is piss the fans off more so than the gain they get from the general audience. How bout for Spider Man 5 they reveal that MJ is a Hydroman clone.

half good

LOVE Vulture. The best thing Raimi has done on these is stay mostly-fixated on the golden-age villains. Good lord people... Carnage? Venom was never interesting outside his origin story, and Carnage is less interesting than that.

Girl-vulture... not sure, but need to see an outfit. Not to be a pig about it, but I wasn't hoping for Black Cat because her personality and back story are so interesting.

I'm fine with Vulture but Vultress? is that evena character in the comics or are they creating and licensing a new made up character like they did with New Goblin? and why not have the Black Cat? heck, Batman had Catwoman, Iron Man has Black Widow why not Black Cat? one of the sexiest Marvels U characters created?? I say keep Vulture, leave Vultress out, bring in Black Cat and give us Lizard for peep sake!

I'm excited to see what Raimi does with Vulture, if he indeed is the villan, I was a little worried when he decided to have Sandman as the villan in S3 but turned out to be the best thing in the move, or at least one of the best things, I like Raimis take on the golden age Spidey villans so far with Doc Oc and Sandman, I can't wait to see what he does with Vulture, if he does become the villan in S4.

This sounds awesome but I kind of like the idea of "The Lizard" more as being the villan. If "Venom" wasn't screwed up in Spider Man 3, there would have been so many more directions this movie could have gone. But, oh well.

Ha! It's funny how she has green painting all over her body except for two distinct areas between her armpits.

To be fair...

Goblinettes were proposed for the first film (I haven't looked lately, but there's some concept art of them floating around), so we should have seen this coming.

Typical Raimi

Anne Hathaway would be a terrible Black Cat anyway. She looks nothing like her comic book counterpart. Does she even have boobs, really? Black Cat is notorious for her boobs. And being Vulturess is even worse.Sam Raimi doesn't know how to make a good Spider-Man film. He can't even have a characte who wears a mask for barely 5 minutes before they take it off."We need to see their face!" He sounds like a crazy person. He's probably only making Spider-Man 4 to pay off his gambling debts, since he

The Vulture? Really?

I guess I don't understand the appeal of The Vulture, but....how stupid of a villain was this to begin with? An old bald guy with wings? Not too scary to me...and were his wings part of his body (how could you function in society?) and if they are just sleeves he puts on, the modern audiences will not buy a flying old man who just puts wings on like Mr. Rogers slipping on a cardigan.

S-T-U-P-I-D

Bring on Mysterio already.

Maybe the vulturess thing is just for marketing and they never actually call her that in the movie. And hopefully Anne Hathaway wont be in a green costume with wings. that would be silly.

To answer your question: yes, it does sound ridiculous!

I don't hate the Vulture, I think it could make a nice transition from pages to screen, but the Vulturess? First of all, it contradicts (again!) Raimi's quote that there would be only one villain. Secondly, Anne Hathaway has too much class to take a part that crappy. Third, I think Raimi's work on the first two has been extremely overrated, that he's a much bigger problem to the franchise than the often criticized Maguire or Dunst, but even I don't think it's something he would do.

I believe this is bogus.

I would have preferred Ben Kingsley but Malkovich is way too bad ass to complain about. Bring it on, Raimi! I look forward to seein' Vulture and Spidey battle it out! =)

If this is true

Give it a rest, Raimi. Just go the fuck away. And hell, I didn't even like Spider-Man 2. Why? Because it's as ridiculous as the other two films. I'm not afraid to say it. Seriously:

"Nothing will stand in my way. NOTHING!"

What a great villain they portrayed Doctor Octup... I mean "Doc Ock" as. Not cliché at all.

I like Malkovich as vulture, but Dylan baker as lizard would be awesome, also, vulturess? seriously? Black Cat is iconic enough in her own right, i'm sure no one will mix her up with catwoman unless they're a bit silly, vulturess? it just sounds wrong, why have a female sidekick at all if she's called vulturess, waste of hathaway, so no i dont belive this
