Movieline says that Paramount and Sam Raimi are circling John Malkovich, plus the previously mentioned Anne Hathaway, to star as villains in Spider-Man 4. Malkovich is reportedly negotiating for the role of the Vulture, an evil inventor whose mechanical, swordlike wings give him flying and stabbing abilities. Hathaway would play Felicia Hardy, who, in comics, was the alter ego of evildoer the Black Cat. But in the movie, says Movieline, Hardy will become an all-new Spider-Man-taunting bad person named the Vulturess. So basically this will be hell on our Google Alert. [Movieline]
