It seems like Spider-Man 4 is pretty much confirmed. Now, the biggest question in my mind is how are they gonna follow-up the first trilogy? Spider-Man has accepted his responsibility, dealt with it, and learned not to abuse them. He has fought Green Goblin I+II, Doc Ock, Sandman, and Venom. And, he got MJ. (Whether or not he keeps her we'll have to wait till Spider-Man 3 is released to find out.) So, what else is there? I have two solutions. One is very realistic and the other isn't so much. I'll start with the less likely solution. Spider-Man 3 hasn't been released yet, but I'm pretty sure that in the film Peter Parker will have figured it out. When we see him in Spider-Man 4 he won't be making any major mistakes. The man knows what he's doing. So, what he will do is try to prevent things from getting out of control. In the first two films (not sure what happens in the third one) he waits for something to happen. When the Green Goblin attacked during the Parade he didn't try to figure out who he was and stop him before he does something. He just waited for the next attack. In Spider-Man 2 he does the same thing. He just waits for Doc Ock to attack. I think Peter will stop doing that. The man works in a newspaper and now has the Gwen/Capt. Stacy police connection. He'll start becoming more of a detective/reporter. He'll start investigating his villains. Now, if Spider-Man is gonna become a detective/reporter then who would make the PERFECT villain? The Kingpin, of course. Unforunately, Fox has the movie rights. But. . .I don't see any Daredevil sequels being made. So, Sony and Fox will arrive on some agreement. I think the Kingpin will become a Blofeld-type villain. Spider-Man will battle Kingpin in the last three movies, but only go one-on-one in Spider-Man 6. In Spider-Man 4 and 5 he'll battle the Kingpin's version of Dr. No and #2. As for Peter's personal life, I think Peter and MJ will probably break up at the end of Spider-Man 3. Of course we don't know for sure since the film hasn't been released yet. But, if that is the case then they'll introduce Felicia Hardy/Black Cat in Spider-Man 4. So, Peter will become a pimp and be involved with MJ, Gwen, and Felicia/Black Cat. And, I think Aunt May will survive Spider-Man 3 but of course she's old so we'll see her health get bad in the next three films and its something he'll have to deal with, of course. Now, for the more realistic approach! They have about five major villains left: Lizard, Mysterio, HobGoblin, Carnage, and apparently the symbiote survives so he'll be back. That's good! All those villains will be used in the next three films. But, if they really wanna create good hype they'll have to bring someone back from the dead. It'll most likely be Doc Ock. I think Ock will create the Sinister Six and that'll be Spider-Man's villain in Spider-Man 6. Your thoughts?
