Thomas Haden Church Appears as Flint Marko in Spider-Man 3
Sony Pictures released today the first picture of Thomas Haden Church (Oscar nominee for Sideways) as Flint Marko in Spider-Man 3, to be released in 2007. Spider-Man fans will recognize Marko as the alter ego of Sandman, sure to be an impressive CGI villian, who can shift his body into sand and elude our hero's grasp. To be sure, the big photo (credited to Merie Wallace) isn't particularly impressive; he looks like someone just took his parking spot. And lately Part Threes have not lived up to their predecessors (The Matrix Revolutions or Blade: Trinity anyone?). But with Sam Raimi at the helm, anything's possible.

sandman will be a hard special effects villian, but it will look really cool, since he can change shape and move around. Spider man cant kill him with punches or web, he will have to heat him or make him wet.

WELLL AS WE KNOW THE SANDMAN IS NEVER KILLED!!!! OR DESTROYED BUT, IT CAN BE DEFEATED SOME TIMES BY SPIDERMAN BY USING WATER OR HEAT MAKING HIM CRYSTAL OR GLASS.

BUT THE TRUE STORY IS THAT THE SANDMAN GIVE UP ALL THE BAD STUFF HE DO AFTER THE HYDRO-MAN LEAVES HIM. BUT NEVER GET KILLED!!

Well, we don't know much so far about Spiderman 3...But if it was anything like the 2nd one I will be pissed I dont think they should throw in Sandman for the 3rd installment of this movie. I think they should have sticked with GreenGoblin storyline, and moved it up with hobgoblin...Or even Shocker, I think Venom would be a little bit to hard to throw in right now considering we don't have an Eddie Brock. So with my finnal note I say Shocker or Mysterio :D But either way I am confident they wont screw this movie up...I'am deffinetly hoping that X3 wont suck either, When can we hope to see Spiderman and X-men join Up :D :D :D

ummmm, sandman is easily defeated... all spiderman has to do is transfer his "venom" onto sandman and he's history.... as for the venom comment... he will be coming soon, probably in spiderman 4 if there is one, after spiderman loses his "venom" another human is taken over by it, which, in turn, creates the venom we all love so much. also... sandman is a very vicious, maniacal super villian, you all underestimate his powers
