Kirsten Dunst a lock for Spider-Man 4?

Producer says she’s in…

While there has yet to be much solid, Sam Raimi-shaped confirmation, it looks like Kirsten Dunst will indeed be returning to play Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man 4.

Talking to the New York Post, producer Todd Black mentioned that the actress is back. Now, that could be wishful thinking on his part, and we still want to see something from the studio or Raimi, but it sounds like the Dunst will be back.

But even if/when she does report to the set, don’t necessarily expect her to be donning a wedding dress. While recent rumours have spouted that there could be an MJ/Peter Parker wedding in the film’s future, Black said he had no knowledge of the subplot in the current script.

And though he didn’t lock down the identity of the villain (he says “villain”, which makes us hopeful there might actually be only one badddie again), he did drop a tantalising hint…  “We're just coming up with who the villain's going to be now. We'll be shooting in New York again. Trust me, people will appreciate who we pick, because it'll be a big part of New York."

Oooh… time to start speculating again. One of Marvel’s New York-centric villains, then? Either that, or the Statue Of Liberty does a Ghostbusters 2 and comes to giant life to threaten the Big Apple…

Thinking caps on – which villain could this be?

      I think the baddy should be the lizard or the kingpin. Both dastardly enemies.

      I think it would be the kingpin. He controls the crime in New York and I think that Sony will probably try and take the Spider-Man story down the Dark Knight road, where you have one man against an entire network of crime and faced with a main antagonist who controls the crime. So people can get to see Spidey taking down some good ol' fashion thugs and criminals and have a big finaly with Fisk.

      You know what? Make this a dark pic. ala Dark knight. Use Kraven the Hunter, he was a killer. He hunted with his bare hands.

      its time for lizard!! altho a carnage vs lizard fight wud of been awesome, carnage needs to be dark and gritty more 15 or 18 cert- so raimi shuld stay away. mysterio= bruce campbell- it wud be a great set up for all the characters he played previously.

      I would love to see an opening baddie, like in the comics,like one not great for the big screen, or an opening montage of him fighting villians, someone like vulture, shocker, rhino.

      Lizard and/or Electro. Been waiting for The Lizard in the same way we waited for the 2nd Green Goblin. Electro is a fave of mine. Kingpin (bless him) just wouldn't seem right in "Sam Raimi's" Spider-Man movies. Bruce Campbell is a God. I'm sure whatever role Mr Raimi entrusts to him will be outstanding. Seeeeeeriously doubt a big studio like Sony would consider him bankable enough to play a lead villain like Mysterio. Shame though. Wasn't Sir Ben Kingsley tested fro the role of Vulture for Spider-Man 3 before the studio nixxed the idea in favour of (yawn) ... Venom? ...(Double Yawn)

      With Kirsten back in, it's easy: the baddie is Snaggletooth.
