Hanh Nguyen over at shares a great little scoop that he got from Kirsten Dunst during her "Elizabethtown" press junket. We all know that Thomas Haden Church and Topher Grace will be portraying the "Spider-Man 3" villains known as Venom and Sandman … but which actor will be which evildoer?

"Although the Internet has been abuzz with the supposed identities of the two "Spider-Man 3" villains to be played by Thomas Haden Church and Topher Grace, Sony and Marvel have kept the names under wraps.

Now Mary Jane herself has confirmed Spidey’s latest nemeses.

"We have really great people though as the villains in this film, Thomas Haden Church and Topher Grace — Venom and Sandman," says Kirsten Dunst while promoting her film "Elizabethtown."

"Maybe I wasn’t supposed to say that," she says, checking with her rep, who assures her the information has already been released.

The "Interview with the Vampire" actress is a little shaky on the information at first, saying that Church would play Venom and Grace would take on Sandman, before reversing her claim when a journalist expresses disbelief. "It’s the other way around. You’re right," she concedes.

Dunst can be forgiven since she has yet to receive a script for the film that will begin shooting in January.

"But I know the general story," she adds. "There’s a lot that they’re trying to fit into this one."
