MTV Splash Page recently got to speak with Spider-Man 4 director Sam Raimi, who talked about the film's villain. While he didn't reveal exactly who the villain would be in the film, he did talk about how they were approaching the villain, which you can see below.

"What we're trying to do right now is really understand the journey Peter is going to go on this time and have the villain maybe be a counter to that growth, something that he has to overcome," Raimi said. "Or maybe he has to grow in a way to overcome the villain, because there always seem to be stories of coming of age, of a young man growing up and learning things about life, so once we are identifying the exact movement that Peter has to grow to, I think the villain-and we're trying this right now; we're trying to choose a villain based on who would be the proper counter to that growth, so we really have dramatic conflict."
