“The Wrestler” star Mickey Rourke was reportedly considered for a villain role “Spider-Man 4,” though no story details have been released at this point. (Wouldn’t Rourke’s hulking and grizzled presence be an ideal match for the Spider-Man villain Kraven?)
Director Sam Raimi and leading man Toby Maguire are both locked to return for the sequel, with Kirsten Dunst likely to follow. The big question up in the air remains whether the film will be a team-up of past supervillains or introduce someone entirely new. Their interest in Rourke may indicate that there is a specific new villain already on the table.
