Just a few days ago we found out that apparently James Vanderbilt turned in a script for “Spider-Man 4″ that allowed for Sony to shoot 4 and 5 back-to-back. Now comes news from Marvel’s Vice Chariman, Peter Cuneo via IESB talking about when we may see the Spider-Man on the big screen again:
“As far as Spider-man 4, it’s really up to Sony, it’s up to them, most likely scenario is 2010 or 2011 but we can’t speak for them and I think, that we don’t know. They have given us their re-up payment for that film so you know they’re going to make it within a reasonable time frame. Sony may be looking at some issues with the cast and so on, I think they have to make some decisions.”
I suppose we’ll know soon enough. I anticipate that we’ll likely soon be hearing whether or not their be going in a new direction (i.e. new cast) or continue on with the current cast.
