Spider-Man has had his fair share of screen time and actors. It appears though that they did start storyboarding for a fourth installment in the Spider-Man franchise back when Toby was behind the mask.

We don’t know much about what the film was going to be but what we did know was that the film would have seen John Malkovich as The Vulture. Now with this released storyboard work, from artist Jeffrey Henderson, we have an idea of how the character potentially  would have appeared on the big screen.

“I hope that one day I can, (or somebody can), finally tell the whole story of Sam Raimi’s ‘abandoned’ fourth Spidey movie,” Henderson writes on his website, where he revealed storyboards for Spider-Man 4. “Until then, out of respect for Sam, (and fear that he’d send Bruce Campbell to come after me with a chainsaw…), and everyone that worked on, or contributed to, this project, let me just say this: It would’ve been one absolutely kick ass movie. Seriously. We were working on some crazy- cool stuff, because everyone, from top to bottom, felt that Spidey 3 was a bit of a ‘missed opportunity’, and we all really wanted to help Sam take SM4 to another level so he could end the series on a high note.’

“Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be, but I did get to spend a few years working on “OZ, The Great and Powerful”, which was just amazing…but that’s a whole ‘nother post. Anyway, Sam is almost superstitious about releasing any storyboards for anything, (go back and look at every “The Art Of” book for every movie he’s ever done… you know what’s not gonna be there? Anywhere? That’s right: storyboards), I don’t really know why- but that’s just how he feels about it. So, having said that, here are some ‘boards I can share, (without pissing Sam off), from the mysterious Spider-Man 4.

You can see more details in the storyboard images shown below.
