Spider-Man 3: So far, the third film in the Spider-Man franchise has been the target of a series of rumors and even false hints released by the film’s production. Now, the newest rumor is around about the actor who will play the new villain. That’s because, Collider journalist Jeff Sneider, reported that he “heard” that Williem Defoe will return to production, playing the character Norman Osborne, better known as Green Goblin.
According to the journalist, the villain will be the leader of the Sinister Sextet, which could include the return of the characters Electro (Jamie Foxx), Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina), Sandman, Rhino and Lagarto. In addition to Sneider, youtuber and comic book author Grace Rudolph confirmed the news on her Twitter.
This is true.
