Spider-Man 4: this is what Sam Raimi's film could have looked like

Whether we prefer the more modern version of the MCU or the saga with Andrew Garfield, we must admit that Spider-Man with Tobey Maguire has a certain charm. In this context, many people regret not having been able to discover Spider Man 4 from the director Sam Raimi.

Which villain for Spider-Man 4?

In this Spider-Man 4 we would have had the right to the presence of the Vulture. Indeed, the comic book writer Ken Penders unveiled the villain’s mechanical wings on Twitter:

Before Tobey and Sam said goodbye to Sony, work had actually started on SPIDER-MAN 4, and I visited some friends who were working on the Vulture costume for actor John Malkovich. Once production stopped, all material was returned. I kept it for almost 15 years.

Eventually life decided otherwise, and the Vulture made his MCU debut via the excellent Michael Keaton in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Two rooms, two atmospheres. Now imagine the face of the famous villain if he had been played by John Malkovich. A delight isn’t it?

From other information this canceled Spider-Man 4 could have been quite grand. According to the concept artist Jeffrey Henderson, the film could have had a handful of classic villains within it, namely Mysterio, the Shocker, the Prowler, Rhino… In short, a real monster fair for Peter Parker.
