Spiderman_203_20Poster.jpgSpider-Man producer Laura Ziskin has gone on record to say we will see a Spider-Man 4, but there are a lot of details to work out first.

“It would be great to have everybody back,” Ziskin says. “But no one is going to sign on the dotted line until we have a script. These are the questions being discussed now. The one thing we have answered definitively is: There will be more ‘Spider-Man’ movies. We just haven’t answered what shape they will come in and (Sony) hasn’t given us a release date.

The biggest question on everyone’s mind is, “Will Tobey return?”  I like Maguire as the web-head, but frankly could care less if Kirsten Dunst gets signed on. Even more important than who will fill the spandex is if Sam Raimi will return as director.  In the interview with Ziskin, she indicates Raimi is part of the initial meeting with Sony execs and we could hear a yes or no shortly after.

If they are going to do more Spider-Man movies, might I suggest they shoot the next four back to back in a non-stop Spider-film-a-thon and then release them once a year until 2012.

  1. I don’t like Tobey as Spider-Man, he always seems to have this dumbfounded look of bewilderment as though he just wondered on set and the director told him he’s Spider-Man. He also fails to emote properly, he often seems like he’s just reading the script. I had the same complaints about Michael Keaton’s Batman, but luckily they replace him, Kilmer, and Clooney with Bale, who can actually play the role and not just be himself imitating the role.

  2. Brent,
    I had the same complaint about Tobey after seeing SM 1. He didn’t seem comfortable in the role and appeared to be standing around trying to decide what he should do with his hands. However, Peter is supposed to be a nerdy high school kid (which you would expect to be uncomfortable with people). So I don’t think Tobey’s acting kills the character in the movie. So he kind of is a middle of the road choice for me. I wouldn’t want a different actor at this stage though. I don’t like when actors are switched frequently the way they did in Batman. They should get a good selection who is willing to stick with the role for several films (this isn’t rocket science – we all know that if the movie is well received, there will be a sequel).
