Topher Grace in Spider-Man 3

Topher_Grace.jpgSpider-Man 3 has landed a new cast member in Topher Grace. The “The 70’s Show” star is apparently going to play a second (still to be announced) bad guy (Thomas Haden Church is already lined up to play Sandman). My reactions to this news is mixed.

Topher Grace is easily the best pure actor out of the That 70’s Show gang. Getting good talent in your film is never a bad thing. However, the part about this news that disturbs me has nothing to do with Grace himself. It’s the fact that they’re going to have 2 villains. Bad move. Don’t they remember what the 2 villain formula did to the Batman franchise?

Having just 1 key villain in each of the first 2 Spider-Man films gave enough screen time to develop Peter Parker’s story and the story of the villain. Adding another key character that must be introduced and developed mean screen time will have to be taken away from the other principals… and that’s not a good thing.

So I don’t know… this could work… and I’m glad it’s Topher Grace… but I personally think they ought to just stick with 1 villain.
