Who Will Spider-Man Face Next?

Posted on November 29, 2004

Everyone wants to know which villain Spider-Man will face next. Scifi.com reports that Spider-Man screenwriters Sam Raimi and his brother Ivan are hard at work on Spider-Man 3. But the writer still hasn't decided on a villain for the next story.

"I actually haven't figured it out just yet," he said. "I'm trying to determine Peter Parker's journey as a human being, what it is that he'll be learning on this next adventure, as a kid growing up, what life lessons [he'll experience]. Once I know what that is, I'm going to try to develop obstacles in his path, like any dramatic writer would do. And out of those conflicts will come the drama. Either he'll be able to overcome these conflicts or he won't. But once I know his journey, and therefore the conflicts that are in his path, I'll choose that villain that best represents those conflicts. That's the way in which I've been approaching this, and I'm still not quite there in determining the villain."

So, who will Tobey Maguire face next time out? We're hoping for either The Chameleon, Electro or The Lizard.
