Looks like Venom and Sandman will try to finish what Green Goblin and Doc Ock couldn’t do — by trying to destroy our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, that is.

In an interview with Zap2it.com promoting her new film Elizabethtown, Kirsten Dunst, who plays Spidey’s love interest Mary Jane Watson, slipped up and revealed what Sony and Marvel have kept a secret for months: the identities of the villains in the highly anticipated Spider-Man 3, which is slated to begin filming in early 2006. ”We have really great people though as the villains in this film, Thomas Haden Church and Topher Grace (left) — Venom and Sandman,” Dunst said, while displaying some confusion about which actor will take on which role.

Apparently, Venom has similar strengths as Spidey, including the ability to cling to surfaces with his hands and feet, and to shoot webs from a costume of alien origin, while Sandman’s special powers include the ability to turn into a sand-like substance, then mix with dirt particles to grow in physical size.

What do you think of the latest options in Spider Nemeses, and the actors who’ll play them? Sound off now!
