Spider-man 3 screenshots have been floating around for a while now, and fans are in a bit of a tizzy. Why? Spider-man appears to be wearing a black costume. If that’s the case, then Venom will most likely be the latest in the line of super-villains that spidey must face off against… in a symbiotic alien costume! However this could all be a ruse. The “black suit” appears to be a grey scale photo to me, and Spider-Man appears to be more depressed than super-charged with alien powers.
That’s not all the screenshots reveal. Check out the Sandman. Excellent choice for a villain, even if the consistency is completely out of whack, and Thomas Haden Church looks perfect for the part. As long as Green Goblin (via Harry Osborn) doesn’t make a second appearance I’ll be happy with the villain choice.
As I’ve stated in the past I’m really not all that excited about Spider-Man 3. The sequel was a tragedy so far as I’m concerned, and I doubt 3 will do the series any justice.

Kirsten Dunst confirmed in an interview a few months ago that the two villians were going to be Venom and Sandman. Even though not too long ago, Raimi said as long as he was directing Venom would never make an appearance.
Topher Grace is the supposed casting choice for Venom. He doesn’t look much like the buff Eddie Brock of the original series, but there is a chance that the story will be slightly based on Ultimate Spiderman (for PS2) where Eddie was a very puny teen who bulked up when he wore the symbiote.
Raimi has played with costume design and storyline in both 1 & 2. I would say he will do it with 3. I’d like to see the symbiote suit be more like the original, but if it’s going to be a black spiderman suit, I can live with it.
Forgot to add that the Sony website for Spiderman mentions a “Wild Storm” encompassing the city. There has been a lot of speculation that the black suit was a red herring to throw us off of the real second villain, Electro.
Topher Grace looks much more like Electro than Venom, and the wild storm matches well with how Electro was created.
All speculation though.
Everything I’ve seen thus far claims that Venom is just a rumor… where is the Kirsten Dunst interview?

Interesting. thanks for the tip.
[…] I would also like to point out that I was absolutely wrong, and I am now very much looking forward to the third movie. […]
