Click over to Sony’s official "Spider-Man 3" website for your first peek at Thomas Haden Church as … Flint Marko? Yep, that’s the "real" name of Spidey foe Sandman, a guy who has some really fascinating powers involving, yes, sand.
Sure it’s only a simple photo, but the Spidey series has earned this sort of attention by now, and let’s just say the folks at Sony know how to milk a series for all its worth. But if Sandy’s powers are even half as cool in the movie as they are in the comic books, well, we’re all in for one heckuva treat.
Presently scheduled for release in May of 2007, "Spider-Man 3" stars Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, James Franco, Rosemary Harris, J.K. Simmons, Topher Grace, and (obviously) Thomas Haden Church as Sandman!
