John MalkovichOh, how high the Vulture would've flied!

Alas, 'Spider-Man 4' was not meant to be, though /film reports that John Malkovich has confirmed what was once only a rumor: that he was set to battle Tobey Maguire's webslinger as the supervillain Adrian Toomes, aka the winged Vulture.

Malkovich reminds us that he first met with director Sam Raimi about the 'Spider-Man' franchise back when it wasn't even a franchise yet. The actor was one of the many contenders for the role of Norman Osborn, aka the Green Goblin, which eventually went to Malkovich's 'Shadow of the Vampire' co-star, Willem Dafoe.
