"Spiderman No More!" Sam Raimi Walks Away...

Sam Raimi Walks Away from Spider-Man 4, Sony to Reboot Franchise Instead

I loved the second film, but Spider-Man 3 was a major disappointment. And considering the rumor that the Black Cat was to appear not as the Black Cat, but as...the Vultress...well, I'm hoping that this will be a step for the better.

Details from

"Apparently when push came to shove, Sam Raimi has decided to walk away, and Sony has decided not to replace him. Instead, they will now turn their attention to a reboot of the franchise from a script that was written by James Vanderbilt a while back. Everyone will be recast, which means that Tobey Maguire has donned the red and blue tights for the last time. Sony has confirmed this news with a short, non-committal update from their Twitter account:"
