John Malkovich and Anne Hathaway Might Be Joining Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst in Spider-Man 4

I can’t stand posting rumors, but this one might be too good to ignore. Movieline is reporting that John Malkovich is currently in negotiations to star as The Vulture, while Anne Hathaway is looking to star as Felicia Hardy. Comic fans will note that Felicia Hardy eventually becomes The Black Cat, but in Raimi’s world, Felicia will become a new villain called “The Vulturess”. Again, let me stress that this is rumor at this point, but it’s the closest we’ve come to confirmation of a Spider-man 4 villain.
I’m excited about Spider-man 4 and I still think Raimi has a few more good films in him. But I get nervous whenever classic characters get re-imagined. I don’t think this is a good sign, but I definitely like Malkovich as The Vulture.
