It sounds sexual when you shout it in people's faces like that.

Spidey Four has just taken it in the spider hole:




Quote
Spidey 4 dead, Raimi and Maguire out and Studio going reboot route.

Culver City, CA (January 11, 2010) -- Peter Parker is going back to high school when the next Spider-Man hits theaters in the summer of 2012.
Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios announced today they are moving forward with a film based on a script by James Vanderbilt that focuses on a teenager grappling with both contemporary human problems and amazing super-human crises.

The new chapter in the Spider-Man franchise produced by Columbia, Marvel Studios and Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin, will have a new cast and filmmaking team. Spider-Man 4 was to have been released in 2011, but had not yet gone into production.

“A decade ago we set out on this journey with Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire and together we made three Spider-Man films that set a new bar for the genre. When we began, no one ever imagined that we would make history at the box-office and now we have a rare opportunity to make history once again with this franchise. Peter Parker as an ordinary young adult grappling with extraordinary powers has always been the foundation that has made this character so timeless and compelling for generations of fans. We’re very excited about the creative possibilities that come from returning to Peter's roots and we look forward to working once again with Marvel Studios, Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin on this new beginning,” said Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment.

“Working on the Spider-Man movies was the experience of a lifetime for me. While we were looking forward to doing a fourth one together, the studio and Marvel have a unique opportunity to take the franchise in a new direction, and I know they will do a terrific job,” said Sam Raimi.

“We have had a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration and friendship with Sam and Tobey and they have given us their best for the better part of the last decade. This is a bittersweet moment for us because while it is hard to imagine Spider-Man in anyone else’s hands, I know that this was a day that was inevitable,” said Matt Tolmach, president of Columbia Pictures, who has served as the studio’s chief production executive since the beginning of the franchise. “Now everything begins anew, and that’s got us all tremendously excited about what comes next. Under the continuing supervision of Avi and Laura, we have a clear vision for the future of Spider-Man and can’t wait to share this exciting new direction with audiences in 2012.”

"Spider-Man will always be an important franchise for Sony Pictures and a fresh start like this is a responsibility that we all take very seriously," said Michael Lynton, Chairman and CEO of Sony Pictures. "We have always believed that story comes first and story guides the direction of these films and as we move onto the next chapter, we will stay true to that principle and will do so with the highest respect for the source material and the fans and moviegoers who deserve nothing but the best when it comes to bringing these stories and characters to life on the big screen."

Sigh. Another reboot? They make it sound as if the other films didn't deal with Peter Parker's attempts to live a normal life... Not that I mind going back in continuity a bit, maybe between the first and second film, but it needn't be a complete reboot.


Still, on the bright side, I wonder if this means Evil Dead 4 will come into production sooner? (I say sooner, I think Raimi still might have one or two other films on the go before then...)

Ha well there you go then huh. Someone needs to tell John Malkovich!

Its a shame I do like the Vulture and I think he could have made a good movie villian. So it'll be a while before we get a new Spidey film then I guess. Ho hum.

Well, to be honest I'd rather see a reboot than whatever Spidey 4 was shaping up to be. (Vulture, seriously? He's an old guy in spandex.) Maybe we won't get any musical numbers and emo-spidey this time. 

On the other hand, this might mean going throught the whole origin again, which isn't really necessary. Just give the rights back to Marvel Studios, let them work with it.

That was just one film out of three though. The other two were largely great.

Actually, I quite liked three as well, although it's certainly the weakest. It's a shame they felt the need to cram so much into it. And the fact the Venom meteorite just happens to land near one of the most powerful beings in New York... (Mind you, the Venom gunk seemed to have a degree of intelligence so maybe it was able to guide it there somehow...)

I actually quite liked the Sandman's character. Essentially a guy trying to make do who too the wrong road somewhere. They probably should have just concentrated on him as a villain.

As for John Malkovich, yeah, I think he'd make an excellent Vulture. Still, looks like that's over now...

I agree, I liked the first two. Just after number three and the rumours that were circling about four, I'd rather see someone else have a go.

Oh, I'm all for this- sadly, Tobey Maguire is probably getting on a bit to still be playing the teenage Parker, and for Spidey to work I think it really needs to be centred around his teenage years. I'm also not sad to see the back of Sam Raimi and hope that whoever comes next will be the 'John Romita' to his 'Steve Ditko'.

But it'll probably be Michael Bay or Uwe Boll.

Let's hope for a complete redesign of everything- from the suit up. As long as it concerns itself with the central core dilemma of Spider-Man (how to be a hero in the face of overwhelming odds), it'll hit the right notes.

I actually got reasonably bored of the SPIDER-MAN films after about the first hour of Spidey #1.  I didn't like the end of #1 and though #2 had it's moments, I thought it retrod old ground. And I realy didn't like #3.

But the first hour of #1 was fantastic. So in theory, this reboot sounds like it might be right up my street but I just think it's too soon and, really, what gaps are there to fill in?
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

A reboot is the worst possible news, as it presumably means we'll never again get to clap eyes on *sigh* this:

Nobody warned me I would be so awesome.

Wow! I forgot how, erm, revealing that bit was. (Surprisingly so considering the wide audience it's aimed at.) Hello nurse.

And there was that similar bit in Spidey 2 in Doc Ock's secret base.

Kirsten Dunst is wet in quite an extensive amount of those films.

The real disappointment will be having to sit through that origin again.  Okay, he was bit by a radioactive spider.  Got it.

Who ever said it was an origin story?
