"We have really great people though as the villains in this film, Thomas Haden Church and Topher Grace -- Venom and Sandman," says Kirsten Dunst while promoting her film "Elizabethtown."
"Maybe I wasn't supposed to say that," she says, checking with her rep, who assures her the information has already been released.
The "Interview with a Vampire" actress is a little shaky on the information at first, saying that Church would play Venom and Grace would take on Sandman, before reversing her claim when a journalist expresses disbelief. "It's the other way around. You're right," she concedes.
Dunst can be forgiven since she has yet to receive a script for the film that will begin shooting in January.
"Yeah, that's one of the most frequently asked questions that I get. The films are pretty loyal to the comics. It's the spirit of the comics. It's no secret that Harry does become the second Green Goblin, or Green Goblin 2, but I know that I've talked a little bit with Sam about the 3rd one already, and nothing obvious is gonna happen. I don't think, it's not like we're going to redo number one. There will be surprises."
James Franco will play HOBGOBLIN and not the Green Goblin II (like in the comics). No more info can be given at this time, but I've confirmed this with various sources and apparently it's quite well known.

Maybe he will only be introduced in this film as Eddie Brock and by the end of the film he ends up with Spider-Man’s black costume.
Right now, officially, the only villain in this movie is Sandman.
Exclusive Video Interview: Ted Raimi on Spidey 3 and Empty City!
Ted Raimi, brother of Sam “Spiderman” Raimi, was on hand for the Masters of Horror 2 launch party. We asked him a few questions about Spiderman 3.
You know Sam, despite all of the airs and graces of this being a hugely successful franchise and action movie and superhero movie, Sam is ultimately a brilliant actor’s director. I’ve described him in more than one interview as like Elia Kazan locked inside of Richard Donner. Even though I think Richard Donner is a great actor’s director, too... He’s just...he’s a very specific actor’s director. [Raimi’s] very specific when it comes to performances. He’s very specific and he pushes really hard, but it’s very rewarding.
I shot a scene in January that was a very emotional scene in the movie for my character. And I didn’t understand… We shot all the other coverage all day long, and I was actually starting to get kind of frustrated. I could feel it. I was starting to get a little irritable. And as they day progressed we broke for lunch and we hadn’t gotten any coverage on my side. I was like, ‘Well this is bulls**t man. I’m like working my a** off over here and Sam doesn’t seem to be in too big of a hurry.’
We continued building and building, and then we came back from lunch and we kept building and building. There was a lot of coverage, there was a lot of lighting changes because there’s a whole kind of thing where a window blows out and a storm blows in and there’s all these effects that had to be captured on camera. And I really felt myself becoming more and more physically aggressive. I kind of snapped at a couple of people – and I apologized. I felt myself becoming more emotionally aggressive. He then set two cameras on me and we went for a rehearsal. I slammed the stunt guy; I grabbed him and I slammed him really hard into the wall. Sam came over and goes, ‘You’re ready for your close-up.’ He knew exactly what he was doing. That just gave me goosebumps. He knew exactly what he was doing every step of the way all day long. I had like one rehearsal and he’s like, ‘You’re ready. We can get your close-up first,’ because he knew I was right there and that’s exactly how I had to be in the scene, which was, you know, super aggressive - almost homicidally aggressive."
Church continued. "He shot the close-up first and then he started backing the camera out and shooting the rest of the coverage. And really, I went up to him when we wrapped and I hugged him. I was like, ‘Wow, you taught me so much today that I really thought I knew, and I didn’t know.’
EDDIE BROCK CONFIRMED ( PROOF )
Just came back from the city. They were filming at West 53rd street on 6th avenue of the americas. I was there from 11 AM to 3 PM.
They were shooting the same scenes over and over again. Director Sam Raimi was there, Topher Grace, and James Cromwell.
A miracle happened when the shooting ended and I saw right before my eyes, the director himself Sam Raimi. They were looking over what they filmed in that scene. After that he started walking around and talking to fans. I asked if it was okay if I walked over and said hello and the lady said it was okay. She was part of the crew. I started acting stupid and asked what character Topher is playing and she announced that it was indeed Eddie Brock and Sam Raimi was right there when she said it.
I'm a little upset 'Kingpin' was used in that gawd awful DareDevil cause he is my fave adversary of Spidey.
