Spider-Man 4 in the works

Spider-ManSpider-Man is returning for a fourth installment, but it’s unknown whether any of the original actors will return. Sam Raimi, who directed the first three movies and also wrote the third, has confirmed he’s not helming or writing the fourth. He told MTV.com, “Right now, a writer is being sought to write the next installment… I won’t be working on the story. It’ll be a brand-new writer coming in with a brand-new story—a fresh take on the Spider-Man series.

    i really like the three spider-man movies. but i won’t be the same if tobey maguire and kristen dunst, come back for the fourth one. if they don’t come back i think they shouldn’t make the fourth one!….SPIDER-MAN RULES!!!!

    Spider man 4 would be great… But they need to take a less campy approach, and make it like the Ultimate Spiderman comic books…

    as long as they don’t follow the 2099 storyline it should be okay.

    I could definately do without Dunst.

    if the original actors dont come back, i wont watch the movie. I hate when they do crap like that. Its like a completely different movie leaching off an old project. If Tobey Maguire is not in it, im sorry, its not Spiderman 4, try Spiderman Reinvented.

    As long as the storyline is good. The actors who play the characters shouldn’t matter.

    I think they could find better acters then tobey maguire and kristen dunst.
    Kirsten dunst is a whiner…her acting is terrible, her facial expressions are moniton as is her voice…she drives me insane.
    I’m not a huge fan of Tobey, but he was better in SM3 (then in the first couple).
    So maybe keep Tobey and ditch Kirsten (the only movie she was good in was that Vampire movie when she was a kid).

    I didn’t enjoy the SM3. There’s too many villians, too many background stories, too many distractions, plus Kristen- what’s with her face? She looks weird. One villian per movie but build another in the background for the next movie. Make SM get extra character so pissed, he’s the next bad guy in the next movie.

    I like the general Spider-Man story so I’m open to a new film. My main reason for watching these films in particular was Bruce Campbell. HE RULES! Sam was a good director too.

    Spider man 4!! coolllll

  12. sk8tergirl • October 21, 2007 @ 5:41 PM

    Spider Man 4 will not be the same without the original actors/actresses! But…. I AM SO SEEING THIS MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. brownie • October 22, 2007 @ 4:55 PM

    Bring Tobey back. Kirsten is sooooooooooooooo damn ugly i dont know how ppl see her as a good actor. She is the sole reason that they havn’t made more money then they have. If Mary Jane was hot im pretty sure they would get more ppl into the seats. I’m sick of how ugly she is maybe scarlett or jessica biel. All i know is if one of those girls were in it not only would spidey not be a little cry baby he would defnitly not let anything get in his way to break the seal.

    Spiderman movies are geart and all adding the sinister 6 is a good idea but the problem is how spider man will defeat all of them I mean will black cat help or another ally or if he has one and also cut the romance it will make the movie much cooler. That’s all I have to say.

  15. Max • October 29, 2007 @ 5:39 PM

    Well spider man 3 pissed me off soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much it was so cool in the tralier but when I watched it was so boring. It was mostly about Peter and Mary Jane’s relationship.Cut that out and the next franchaise will be wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better

    This thing definitely needs a new director – the third one was atrocious. So bad, in fact, that people are wandering if Raimi did it on purpose, so that no one else could follow up after him…

    It’s a stretch, but man! What a turkey! So it have to make you wonder…

  17. alex • November 21, 2007 @ 7:43 PM

    I think that the third one was the best so far. I am even your biggest fan. In fact I have all the movies and I go on the computer almost every day on the Spiderman websites.
