If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then here’s the details. Fellow writer James and I had a small argument about IMDB confirming Malkovich as The Vulture for Spider-Man 4. I consider that site to be as credible as Wikipedia, and use the site only for quotes. James on the other hand views IMDB as a very credible source, “Like… a notch under god.” as he put it.
And, while it was said that the delays was due to Raimi and Sony having disagreements over who should be the villain in Spider-Man 4. Now, in an interview with Italian sports show “Quelli Che il Calcio”, He CONFIRMS that he is indeed The Vulture in the film.
Thanks to SuperHeroHype:
“When conductor Simona Ventura asked him about his role of Vulture in the movie, he not only didn’t deny his involvement, but confermed that he’s waiting for the final script to be sent to him, and that the movie has been delayed. He also hopes that shooting will begin as soon as possible”.
While I find that Malkovich as The Vulture to be a great choice, I still say the villain SHOULD have been The Lizard.
Though, this shouldn’t be a surprise that Raimi chose The Vulture. Because if you remember his original idea for “Spider-Man 3” was to have The Sandman and The Vulture, but he studio wanted Venom. And, I guess its kind of ironic that Malkovich was the alternated choice for Green Goblin, and is now cast in this film.
Like he said I hope they get a script soon and begin shooting.
Do you like Malkovich as The Vulture?
