    Is Sandman not part of the Sinister Six but an ally?

    He's probably the most reluctant member of the Six who ends up teaming up with the Spider-Men at the end, or at least tries to stop the rest of the Six from killing them.

    I'm really excited to see what they do with Marko in this. Even back in 2007 I always wanted to see where his story would go since it felt incomplete but I know even if Spider-Man 4 got made, he wouldn't have returned.

    Yeah, him being Ben's killer sucked, but he was great. His arc with his daughter, the effects, music... Raimi nailed Sandman.

    Omg. For all the things people have clowned on SM3 over the years I always felt Flint killing Uncle Ben was the thing that really hurt the movie for me.

    So is Thomas Haden Church coming back or will Sandman just be purely CGI as if he can't retain his human form anymore?

    Personally, i think its possible they could cheat and have him be just CGI. never show him in physical form and just be a CGI sandman.

    We have heard nothing so far about Church. we have heard all these bits and pieces about Goblin, Electro and Ock, but the other 3 seem to be very quiet.

    We will see what happens. i just wonder whether there is a reason why 3 of them have had more leak exposer and the other 3 haven't.

    CGI or not, I just assume the latter 3 are just gonna be regulated to muscle, more or less. With 6 villains, some of them are gonna get less time in the spotlight when it comes to actual character development. Though Sandman may still try to redeem himself.

    What if Sandman is in this but is not one of the Sinister Six? Maybe Mysterio is instead while Sandman is an ally.

    Why was he with this six in that story? This was after he turned a new leaf and decided to go legit, and sometimes help Silver Sable.

    Is this cocaine addiction plan from Amazing or its sequel in Spider-Man?

    Yeah this was after he turned over a new leaf. Ock blackmailed him into joining the Six by threatening to kill the family he was boarding with. It was the cocaine addiction plot.

    I always liked Sandman in S-M3 and felt that the story should have focused solely on him as the bad guy along with Harry as the secondary villain. it's going to be great seeing him again!

    I suspect its only villains from the multiverse.

    My official theory is that Sandman gets pulled from his universe after "dying" (being defeated) by black suit Spider-Man. That way he starts off as a villain, but is on the same trajectory to be redeemed and help defeat the Sinister Six.

    His "birth scene" in SM3 was emotional and exceptional. Raimi really knows how to work with the VFX crew and produce great visuals.

    Thomas Haden Church didn't do a thing wrong in SM3 outside of the retcon where he killed Ben but that wasn't his call of course. The only part of his I found hilarious was when he first encounters Venom thinking it's Spider-Man and his reaction to a scary alien creature screaming in his face is to just casually toss it aside and start to walk away as if nothing happened.

    I feel like Sandman might die protecting Spidey, I dunno just a feeling. He's probably gonna be the most outright not-bad of all of them and some of the others might have a problem with that.

    Since Garfield never found Uncle Ben's killer and Sandman has revealed he was responsible for Uncle Ben's death, then will Garfield Spidey go after him to get revenge? Why would he work with him?

    Garfield will probably have the biggest problem with it and might even kill Sandman himself.

    Holland won't be bothered either way if he never even knew his own Uncle Ben.

    I was surprised at how much I liked Sandman here. I didn't mind him staying in human sized sand form, he got a lot more dialogue than I thought. Loved his intro with him protecting Peter.

    One thing that confused me, why did he join the bad guys at the end?
