First Look: See the new 'Spidey' villain

Sony hasn’t officially said which villain Thomas Haden Church is playing in Spider-Man 3 (though Kirsten Dunst spilled the beans a few weeks ago), but the studio has posted an on-set photo of the actor in character as his Spidey nemesis.

Don’t click on the jump if you don’t want to see the photo or have the character’s identity spoiled.

9231__sandman_lOkay, the caption doesn’t actually say ”The Sandman,” though the name ”Flint Marko,” will resonate with comics fans. The surprisingly buff Sideways star certainly looks the part. Do you agree, Spider-Fans?

    He looks exactly like the comic character. Nicely done!

    That shirt is classic Sandman. And the sand-colored pants are the icing on the sand cake.

    I think Declan Gleeson would’ve made for a much better Sandman. He’s hot!

  • Sean

    I also think if Declan played Sandman, he’d become Alcoholman and go to bars and complain in a drunken rage about how Spiderman ruined his life. Alcoholman is bitter like that.

    Who the hell is the Sandman? They could of had a way better villian then the Sandman. I mean come on The Shocker or even that stupid bird guy or The Rhino. It’s just plain stupid.

    Great choice of villain, and great casting in the role. Sandman is kind of a big, somewhat goofy thug with a sympathetic side, and who better than Church? It’ll be great to watch Raimi can do with Sandman’s superpowers. Naturally, it’ll have to be CGI.

    Sandman is the perfect villain for Spider Man as he was in the orignal Sinister Six group that gang attacked Spider man in the 70s. He has such an iconic clothing style with the green stripes and everything.
    Shocker was gay, Rhino’s too stupid, and Vulture was too old and too much of a side villain for a starring role. Mysterio is a joke. Hydroman is just…no..just no. Kraven isn’t exactly movie villain material which goes also to that of Electro and Chameleon. Sandman and the symbiotes are all they got left for a really exciting movie. Although, Green Goblin should be makin his return if there is a fourth movie…which I doubt but you never know. Also, Hob Goblin was too much of a ninties villain to really play a intricate role in the Spider man movie universe.

    They should have Carnage and the Lizard as the new villains. Think about it: Dr. Connors saved the symbiote sample from Peter Parker, so have Cletus Cassidy break into Connors’ office while on the run from the cops. Then find the sample, and have it take him over. Then have Dr. Connors follow the comic book storyline, research reptiles to gain new limbs, screw it up, and become the Lizard! It’s not too hard!!!
