Dunst Says Sandman and Venom Are Spider-Man 3 Villains

There’s been a lot of speculation going around about who the villains in the upcoming Spider-Man 3 film will be. Well, according to Kristin Dunst, it’s Thomas Haden Church as Sandman and Topher Grace as Venom.

Personally I’m still concerned about the idea of using 2 big villains in the film. If the bad Batman films taught us anything it’s that using multiple main villains can end in disaster. But, it can work if done right… I’d just feel better about it if they focused on one guy (my choice would be Venom). The good folks over at FilmForce give us this:

Dunst is quoted at Zap2It as saying, “We have really great people though as the villains in this film, Thomas Haden Church and Topher Grace — Venom and Sandman.” She added, “Maybe I wasn’t supposed to say that.” But when a journalist expressed disbelief that Sandman lookalike Church would be playing Venom, Dunst corrected her gaffe. “It’s the other way around. You’re right.”

Now, keep in mind that this COULD just be a publicity stunt. I doubt Kristen Dunst is that much of a fool that her bosses main rule (don’t reveal the villains) is one that she’s forget. Also keep in mind that she hasn’t read the script yet. In general what she’s saying sounds credible… but I won’t die of shock if I find out she was just lying.

One thing is for sure. If Grace is Venom, then there won’t be any body suit like there was for The Thing in Fantastic Four. Veonom will be full blown CGI all the way. As a former Special Effects guy I’m really curious to see how well they’ll pull that off. Your thoughts?
