Arad announces fourth Spidey villain!

Soon to be ex-Marvel maestro reveals another foe for the web-slinger

He might be heading out the door but that’s no reason for Marvel honcho Avi Arad to go all Kirsten Dunst on us and start spilling info on the upcoming Spider-Man 3.

A journalist for iF Magazine casually asked about a rumoured fourth villain set to do battle with our favourite wall-crawler and Arad coughed up the info!

iF: There are four villains this time, Venom, Sandman, and Green Goblin. When is the fourth going to be revealed?
ARAD: Right we have four villains.  We’ll reveal it pretty soon I believe.  Maybe around Comic Con we’ll reveal something and the madness will begin.

Arad is stepping down from his numerous roles at the top of the Marvel film division where his reign has seen the company go from strength to strength. The supremo is setting up the imaginatively titled Avi Arad Productions where he will oversee the development and production of, you guessed it, Marvel films.

Still - four villains...
