In their official press release, Sony said that Peter Parker would be going back to high school for a reboot of the franchise with a script by Jamie Vanderbilt. The new chapter will see Parker "grappling with contemporary human problems and amazing super-human crises" and feature a whole new cast and filmmaking team.
Spidey 4 was slated to hit cinemas in the first week of May to kick off the lucrative summer movie season of 2011. Apparently, Raimi had told Sony that he wasn't able to keep the film's creative integrity and stick to the studio's summer release date. There were also rumours that Sony wanted the film in 3D and no one on Raimi's regular team were confident enough of pulling it off. It's now confirmed that Sony would only be ready with the next Spiderman in 2012. (Meanwhile, Paramount has grabbed the opening date in 2011 for their Marvel superhero flick Thor.)
While this promises to be an exciting new beginning for the webslinging superhero, we had hoped that Raimi would have one last hurrah before the inevitable passing of the reins to another director. After all, Spiderman 3 wasn't exactly the best way to exit what had been a very good Spidey 1 and 2.
