Spider-Man's next foes?

Which villains will tussle with the webslinger in Spider-Man 4 and 5 to be shot back-to-back next year?

1) The Lizard: Ever since Dylan Baker was introduced as one-armed Dr. Curt Connors in Spider-Man 2, fans have been anticipating a return. In comics lore, Connors, experimenting with a formula to regenerate his limb, unwittingly transforms himself into a cold-blooded monster. Odds: Even

2) The Vulture: Before Marvel executives insisted Raimi shoe-horn Venom into Spider-Man 3, the director was reportedly toying with bringing Ben Kingsley, always one to puff up his regal feathers, on board as this carrion-eating careerist. Odds: 3-1

3) Man-Wolf: Remember J. Jonah Jameson's astronaut son, who Mary-Jane Watson was engaged to in Spider-Man 2? Back in the 1970s, Marvel's writers had him morph into, ahem, a space werewolf. Odds: 20-1

4) The Black Cat: With Kirsten Dunst's involvement in the sequels still uncertain, could this kitty be coming through the cat flap soon? Odds: 5-1

5) Kraven the Hunter: Trophy nut Kraven comes to New York City to hunt down the most challenging foe of all: Spiderman. Raimi has an acknowledged weak spot for 1960s vintage Kraven-era Spider-Man, but would be hard pressed to make this villain interesting. Odds: 10-1
