Ahh, okay. So that makes sense than. Raimi wanted to use Vulture and Black Cat, but Sony forced their hand and what Sam said recently was just what character he would've used if Sony didn't stick their noses into the creative process and all. Okay, so that is very enlightening then. Thanks

I guess Warners might be a little more flexible since they own DC Comics and are connected to the source material. But let's also face it, money talks. TDK was a Godzilla-monster success, so they knew not to screw with Nolan.
They learned not to really "screw" with Nolan for Batman Begins either, though. Warner Brothers could have tried to put in their two scents since that's what they pretty much had done with the previous two Batman flicks before BB, but WB seems to be letting the directors and writers do what they do best, but sometimes it can bite(Green Lantern, Jonah Hex).

Spider-Man had made Sony a cool 3 billion dollars. They weren't going to let the character go.
I thought so, but I just have this feeling that the reboot was planned since the criticism of S-M 3 was heard as it didn't rival Raimi's first two films, but that could just be me. Either way, Sony was definitely thinking of a reboot even while Raimi thought he could get a S-M 4 on track.

End of story.
If you wanna say so.
