"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 FilmJunk.com:

"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:"

Spider-Man: Summer 2012: Peter Parker is going back to high school when the next Spider-Man hits theaters in the summer of 2012.”
