    In there movie special, Wizard said that Sony has confirmed Spider-Man 4, with or without Maguire and Raimi, for 2010...Dont know if it's old news or not but I figured I'd throw it out there in case it isnt.

    Wizard chat a load of ****e. I'll wait for a more official source for confirmation. Also, the with or without Raimi/Maguire seems to be the only real thing of interest to me right now. I'm hoping it's without.

    It's looking more and more like without.

    Wizard lies so much, I just don't trust them. The announcement will probably be made official by Sony in Variety, after the writer's strike.

    When this is announced, I'm going to rejoice like an evangelist touched by the holy spirit.

    2010 doesn't surprise me.

    Sony had already dated SM4 for a 2010 release anyway. Wizard isn't a credible source, but the date is still true.

    And...noe one is surprised.

    Yeah, I doubt Sam and Tobey will be back. I'll laugh my ass off if the next movie sucks worse though and people start lumping the last three together as "the good ol' days" and talk about "how much Raimi got the character," kind of like fans *****ing about SM3 whitewash how much they *****ed about SM2...and SM1....and pre-casting of SM1...and.

    Oh well.

    No. Actually I hope the next director is great. I hope my favorite villain Lizard is done justice. For example, I'd love to see Joss Whedon do it, if Raimi is gone.

    But I suspect that it will LIKELY be a rush job director who would come into an installment with 4 in the name and a hack like Ratner or Tim Story will take over and fans will be discontented...okay the last part never changes but the first part would.

    As it stands I hope SM4 is the best because it will likely have my favorite villain, but I'm just waiting for all those who are saying "I CAN'T WAIT FOR RAIMI TO LEAVE!" to be praising his name in 3 years.

    I'll never praise Raimi's name even if we get a new crappy cast and crew. To me, crap is crap. The only thing I'll give the studio credit for, is for having the balls to make the right decision in shaking and changing things up but here's hoping those changes lead to something better and more sensible than Raimi's poor efforts.

    Well, this can very well happen, there's no doubt about it. We could get a director who just finished directing The Teletubbies movie; or someone who's creative, ballsy and talented. It's a 50/50 gamble, I'm curious to know who would actually want to helm a 4th Spider-Man movie.

    My gut feeling is telling me that a few really good directors would be interested, and a lot of really bad directors, who will say yeah to anything. I'm just hoping that Sony takes their time, and actually look at the new director's body of work first before signing him.

    Again, I would love to see Sony's list of potential directors. BTW, Ron Howard and David Fincher once had an itch for Spidey, but that ship might have sailed, yet I wonder if they would still be interested.

    Howard maybe, he probably could follow Raimi's world better than most and still take it in a new direction. But with his daughter in it he may not want to get too involved, though Bryce did say he came by during the shooting of the crane scene accident (the set portion) and spent all day watching how Raimi was doing it she said.

    Fincher I would love to see do a Spidey movie, particularly a Lizard/KLH Spidey movie, but I don't think he'd touch the franchise with a ten foot pole now that it is so defined by Sam Raimi. Taht I think is the key problem. The man did three movies and his look and auteur stamp is the Spidey movies and even if the new guys are given free reign, it may be artistically stifling for them to try.

    Some fans fail to realize this, but not eveyrone wants to direct a Spidey movie, particularly if it's the third sequel in the franchise. I also think Sony has set a release date (if only internally) and making that releae date will be more important than anything else for them. Raimi's biggest obligation to Sony was making sure that SM2 and SM3 were ready for release dates. Sony/Ziskin even "joked" (more half-joked) that after letting themselves agree to Raimi delaying SM2 to July from May to finish the SFX and polish the movie some more that SM3 "WOULD" be making it's early May release date, because some were superstitious at Sony that SM2 not opening the first week of May was the reason it didn't do as well. Maybe SM3 would have flowed better if Raimi had two more months in the editing room, but his date was May 4, 2007 and he had to make it.

    If Sony is even quietly gunning for 2010, that is of the highest importance now.

    If they have to recast and find a new director, I'm thinking 2011. But yeah, I'd love to see either of those directors come on board. I think that ship has sailed.

    Sony has no choice. Spider-Man 4 is officially on for 2010 no matter what fanboys say. It can't be 2009 and Summer 2011 is past the rights expiration. 2010 has been in place for a couple months at Sony. May 2010.

    Could you clarify that? Do you have a copy/link/summary of what exactly Sony's contract entails?

    Marvel's early contracts are for 3-4 years with most of them being 3.5 and none over 4 years to be on the screen. Most are 3.5 years including Spider-Man. Also every years that goes by is wasting money. Obviously they can't release one every year but after 3 years it pushes forward the subsequent sequels by a year cost Sony a compounded billions of dollars. So if they waited till 2011 (forget the rights) then the next one probably wouldn't see the light of day until 2014, etc...That one year delay costs quite a bit of money. It's better to have 2 films in 6 years than 2 films in 8. However it's a rights issue so Marvel is staking their claim in 2010 very early. The WGA, SAG, and DGA (if there is one) strikes will be over by mid 2008 for sure but they can't plan around a 2009 release...it's not good business.

    This is what I understand unless my sources gave me bad info and my sources are pretty solid. LOL

    So if they can't release a Spider-Man movie every 3 years, the rights revert back to Marvel? Is there a limit on the number of Spidey films that Sony can release?

    2010?? I still doubt that. The strike looks set to end during the summer of 2009, according to Paul Haggis and if this is true, sm4 getting a 2010 release date means the film will end up being another crappy installment recast or no recast.
