I imagine the supposed villain that looks to die but did in fact NOT was Venom.
Venom more than any other villain is probably the most popular and the one Sony would want to use again and just have him be the main heavy of just one Spidey flick. That or bring in Carnage for a big ass symbiote/Spidey kind of fight.
Hey, maybe Venom and Eddie made it out somehow, who knows.

They've made a few changes to the generally accepted canon (for example: the spider that bit Parker wasn't radioactive, rather, it was genetically modified...and the origins of Venom) so I wouldn't put it past them to make a few more changes.
My money's on Sandman.
I've seen FIVE movies so far this year: Because I Said So - (2*); Borat - (5*); Children Of Men - (4*); The Last Mimsy - (4*); Spiderman 3 - (4.5*)
I personally don't get people thinking Harry will be coming back. His end looked pretty definitive and there'd be no reason to bring him back.
Having seen Spidey 3, I'm confident that it'll definitely be Norman coming back to try and finish the job himself. I'm actually wondering if they'll re-enact the scene from the comics in which Norman visits Harry's grave just to call him a disappointment? Either way, I'm sure Norman's coming back and they'll bring in one of the major B-listers like Electro or Mysterio along for the ride.

Doc Ock wouldn't work, he's a one-film villian. Harry's end seemed final enough. Norman would be cool, but I think having Green Goblins in 3 out of 4 movies is a little lame. If they get to 6 films, having Norman ressurected for the big Spidey Finale film would be sweet, but it shouldn't be in #4. That leaves Venom, which fits very nicely. He wasn't showcased in this film since he only came in towards the end and only had one big fight sequence. It appears obvious on all accounts that Venom would be at least one of the Spidey 4 bad guys.
Lloyd: When I met Mary, I got that old fashioned romantic feeling, where I'd do anything to bone her. Harry: That's a special feeling.
Holy shit no. I can't think of anyone worse. If they're gonna replace Tobey - who is far, far better at being dorky and funny than people give him credit for - they should go for Joseph Gordon Levitt.
To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires, and lights, in a box.-Edward R. Murrow
