Great news revealed over the weekend as Deadline Hollywood Daily broke the news that director Sam Raimi and actor Tobey Maguire have signed for Spider-Man 4 and that Sony may film 4 and Spider-Man 5 (!!!) at the same time. Other notes include…
-Zodiac screenwriter Jamie Vanderbilt is working on the script for 4.
-There has been no formal villain speculated, but the post says their source explains we’ll know who is playing it after it is announced. Perhaps the Lizard (played by Dylan Baker) or Man-Wolf (Daniel Gillies) is being considered based on their roles in past movies, but that seems to lack some sizzle.
-No news on Kiersten Dunst, but the blog doesn’t seem to think she is getting a shot based on ‘rehab’ issues.
-Light launch date is May 2011.
Spidey is coming back! Yes!
