Spiderman 4 Scrapped - Studio looking to do a full franchise reboot for 2012


BREAKING NEWS! 2ND UPDATE: Mike Fleming and Nikki Finke have just confirmed that Sony Pictures decided today to reboot the Spider-Man franchise after franchise director Sam Raimi pulled out of Spider-Man 4 because he felt he couldn't make its summer release date and keep the film's creative integrity. This means that Raimi and the cast including star Tobey Maguire are out. There will be no Spider-Man 4. Instead, Mike Fleming is told, the studio will focus on a Summer 2012 reboot from a script by Jamie Vanderbilt with a new director and a new cast. All this took place today at meeting on the lot today. An official Sony Pictures news release about it is out now.

I am sure McDaniels had something to do with this. I wonder if he got any draft picks for Tobey Maguire?

Good. Spider Man 1 was great, 2 was very good and 3 was TRASH.

Redirect, get a cool witty character to play Peter Parker and take this franchise where it deserves to be. While they're at it, FIX X-MEN!!!!!!!!!! OMG. Amazing how they trashed the potential that movie had.

Rebooting a franchise that's...um...8 years old? Interesting. I guess they kinda did that with the recent Hulk film, but the Ang Lee one was a bit of bomb. Remaking a popular series within a decade of it coming out is a new one to me.

Finally! Maybe now they can get a more talented, (and sexy) actress to play MJ. My suggestion would be the redhead chick from the G.I Joe movie.

I honestly thought James Franco would have played a better Spiderman than Tobey Maguire...so hopefully they get a believable guy to play the part.

I am guessing it involves a corvette chase that ends at the edge of a cliff at which point Pete joins Starfleet and becomes the captain of the Flagship of the fleet after an incident with a time traveling antagonist even though he was suspended of rank or power during the incident.

I bet they get Malcom McDowell to play the time traveling bad guy with a cameo of Stan Lee as the Kirk who is stuck in limbo in heaven cutting wood for his one room log cabin and Dave Chappelle plays Whoopie Goldbergs husband with a goofy hat like Whoopie had who swoops in while Malcom McDowell's character is hosting an orgy with his favorite horse and saves the day by saying "I'm Rick James b****".

This is a REALLY REALLY fast reboot... normally there is supposed to be a rather large gap between films on reboots like this.

I agree with bpc about the 1st two and the 3rd... man the 3rd was ****ing wretched.

Even more weird since the 1st two were box office smashes, even the 3rd did alright.

I know why this is being done though.

Dark Knight fever.

Expect a much darker Spider-Man film.

It's harder to pull off Spider Man than Batman. Wayne is just a quiet, dark, brooding, calculating man. Parker actually has to be witty, funny, tough and heroic. A little bit harder to cast for that IMO.

IMO, comic book flicks only really work when they are trilogies that set each successive movie up to some grand conclusion. Otherwise, they end up spinning out down the road as the studios start throwing in Danny Devito as The Penguin, and Arnold Schwarzenegger in as Mr. Freeze.

IIRC, Franco initially auditioned for Spidey.

thank god. maybe they can get it right this time around. an actual actor that can be the smartass Peter Parker from the comics, and an actress that is actually hot. in the comics MJ is like insanely gorgeous, basically she is the Megan Fox of the comic world, and Raimi thought the best way to bring that kind of hotness to life was with Kirsten Dunst

and even the movies were nothing great. the 1st was decent but the 2nd had to play that whole whoa is me story line, having Parker walking around like a little blitch complaining about his troubles of having all those powers.

Yeah, the man who's guided Marvel out of bankruptcy and set it in the position in it is right now with regards to the Iron Man and Avengers franchises should be kept away. That man is horrible! He makes things successful111!!1

Having a hard time coming up with a comic that pulled off the successful trilogy. Watching Spiderman 3 was like watching the Broncos get blown out at home to the Chiefs.

The new Batman has a chance, but it will be hard to top the Joker character and performance. It will be interesting to see Ironman 2 in June. So much potential there and they may just have the best lead man in Hollywood right now.
