    Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire Will Return For Spider-Man 4. Sony Wants Spider-Man 5 Shot Back-to-Back. Venom Spin-Off News. | /Film

    I loved the screenplay for Zodiac. It gives me hope after a disappointing, though not completely terrible, part 3.

    I thought Spiderman 3 was the last for Maguire. They must have made him an offer he can't refused. But for the rest of his life, I hope he won't be type-cast as Spiderman.

    Spider-Man 4? Why?

    I think they covered all of the important villains, so I fail to see why this is necessary.

    I personally liked SM3, better than 2, actually, but it did show that the property was showing signs of wear and tear.

    I'm not really sure 4 (and potentially 5) are worth the effort. Back to back? Are we having another Matrix send off like Reloaded and Revolutions, or the LOTR trilogy?

    I dunno. It could be great, and I'll go see it (tradition) but I think it's a stupid move.

    I'd disagree. There are plenty of Spidey villains left I'd love to see in the movies.

    I could do with out Maguire or Raimi though personally....

    If they write these well it might be worth seeing.

    I love what Raimi's done with this series of films, except for Spidey 3, which wasn't really his fault. I'm glad he's got a couple more chances to take the franchise out on a high note.

    I just don't want to see two more films with Mary Jane needing to be rescued some more. Been there, done that.

    There better be Lizard. I can't think of anyone else that can fit the "Raimi" sympathy mold better then him. Though I really would rather not have the villian die AGAIN.

    They should have Peter and Mary Jane get married just so they can screw with Queseda. That's about the only way he might consider retconning the pile of crap that was one more day.

    OH YES PLZ.

    He wouldn't dare turn down the chance to tie in with a movie(Back In Black anyone?)!!







    He'd probably just retcon it 2 months later with Dr.Strange or some shit.

    :(

    Wow, I never thought they'd wangle Maguire and Raimi into returning for a fourth Spider-Man (or that Spider-Man IV would be made at all). I seriously hope its better than SM3, that Mary Jane doesn't have some quater-life crisis again (thus needing be saved in some manner or another), and that the Villain doesn't die --- which is a sure thing Spider-Man movies.

    Are Mary Jane and Peter Parker still Divorced in the main Spider-Man Series?

    3 was...not enjoyable to me. Except the final fight scene, and that was just for the visuals.

    But what the hell, I'll check it out.

    Sounds cool to me, but would have been nice to have had the entire article quoted (link took a while to load). Here's the part about the Venom movie if anybody, like myself, is more interested in that part:

    I personally think they should find someone else. I have nothing against Topher, but he doesn't fit the role all that well, imo, and if this "spin-off" movie is supposed to go along with the Spidey movies story wise, it'd be a little hard to explain how a human would survive that.

    this is great news. I would think that this would allow Raimi to not have to cram too many villains into one movie now. I wouldn't want to watch a Spiderman flick that wasn't done by him.

    It was really THAT STUPID. It still doesn't make much sense. Also MJ is probably now a super hero. The character's name is Jackpot. What's your guess.

    I personally think number 3 was a let down and I was hoping the property will be returning to Marvel for a reboot some time later with a new cast, but I'll still go see 4 & 5 cuz there are plenty of villains that they can go with.

    I hope to see the following characters in Spidey's sequels:

    Black Cat (hope she'll seduce Spidey and drive MJ away. I just don't like Dunst)
    Electro (sans the cheesy outfit please!)
    Carnage (they can do the Return of Venom for #4 with Carnage as main villain)
    Lizard (have Dr. Connors return for this role)

    I want the Venom & Carnage saga for part 4, and Black Cat storyline for part 5 with either Electro or Mestique as main villain.
