Tobey Maguire, Sam Raimi To Return For ‘Spider-Man 4’

Spider-ManNikki Finke over at DHD is reporting that Sony has somehow re-obtained Tobey Maguire and Sam Raimi to do Spider-Man 4. Along with this also comes expectations that Kirsten Dunst will also be returning.

To go along with this, as previously reported, Sony is working on shooting a fifth movie at the same time, instead of waiting and risking losing the stars again. The plan is to do movies 4 and 5 in the very smart back-to-back method, assuring them a hell of a lot more money, so long as they make up for the slap of a third movie they put out.

This is an interesting turn-of-events as only recently, many names were being tossed around to claim the Spidey crown, but Sony stood tall saying they still wanted Maguire, and looky here, they pulled it off.

While I was open to a new Spider-Man, I think it’s good they got their group back. I just really hope they return to the second movie’s form and gain a little retribution from the third film. At least it seems the black costume will be gone in these upcoming movies. As far as villains goes, Sony is waiting on casting someone for the part since filming won’t begin until next Fall, but Finke was told that, “once you find out who the villain is, you’ll know who’s playing it.”

Also, the Venom spin-off was touched on, where apparently they still want to use Topher Grace, which is a terrible idea if you ask me. Todd McFarlane says that they can’t do a movie centered on a villain, which I don’t think is the case. They need to do this darker (as much as they seem to not want to be like The Dark Knight) and center on the Venom and Carnage and it would be brilliant!

Either way, it looks like a lot more Spidey is on the way, folks. Look for Spider-Man 4 to be hitting around May of 2011.

Yeah… and we though our precious Harry Potter was a long wait.

  1. THIS IS ALL NON-CONFIRMED, TOBEY HASN’T BEEN LOCKED IN YET AND SONY WENT APE SAYING THERE IS NO ONE ELSE BEING CONSIDERED FOR THE TITLE ROLE. THOUGH THE VENOM SPIN OFF IS CHUGGING ALONG.

  2. Well if this is true, then I hope the franchise reestablishes itself by going back to what made the SPIDER-MAN films so great in the first place [SPIDER-MAN & SPIDER-MAN 2]. Raimi said he would only sign back if the story is good. I guess it’s looking to be the case. I hope that Sinister Six idea Raimi wants to do is still on. I would love to see that.

  3. The problem with 3 was that they “tried” to plug as many villains as possible and told themselves “as long as venom is in it… it will sell” shame on them to play off of fans dreams. Spidey 3 seemed too corny to me. Im a big fan so it had its ups and downs. Topher is better for comedies … Tobey needs to not act like some little princess (the black suit made spidey dark .. not emo). We can only hope for the best.

  4. no, the problem with three is that toby spent more time in an emo dance scene pointing at people then he did in the venom costume.

    i have no idea why they didn’t just dedicate three to him in the suit, and him slowly seeing a change, but saving the venom part for the fourth movie, it was all too rushed.

    and i hope they use the fourth film to tie into the avengers/etc. hell make hulk the bad guy, have him on a rampage in nyc or some shit.
