John Malkovich Confirms He'll Play Spider-Man 4's Vulture
I won't blame you if you've lost track of the Spider-Man 4 rumor mill by now. After hearing rumors about Rachel McAdams playing Black Cat and Anne Hathaway playing Vultress and production getting delayed and then production actually being delayed, it's hard to know anything certain about the project beyond the fact that Sam Raimi and a handful of Sony executives are probably glaring at each other across a conference room table as we speak.
But into the void steps John Malkovich, who has been rumored for months to be Raimi's choice to play The Vulture, the primary villain for this installment of the saga (but, if Sony has their way, not the only villain). According to Bad Taste, Malkovich was over in Italy on a TV sports show (???) and confirmed that he's on board the film, and is waiting for the final script to be sent along. Easier said than done, of course, given that the script is what the studio and the director are battling over right now. But it's good to know that Malkovich is willing to wait it out, and no matter what else goes wrong with Spider-Man 4, we'll at least be continuing the tradition of great villains.
