Green Light for Spider-Man 4?

Hmm…interesting. While I didn’t doubt that Sony and Marvel would want to do another Spidey flick, I am doubtful that Sam Raimi would direct again. As for a bad guy, Lizard would be the obvious one as they have already set up the character in Spider-Man 2. I would also love to see the return of Venom and have a proper battle between him and Spider-Man. Maybe re-introduce him at the end of 4 so maybe Venom would be the real (and hopefully only) villain of Part 5.

And what does this news mean for Robotech? Tobey Maguire’s production company has acquired the rights for a live-action movie set for release in 2010. If Maquire still plans to play the lead role of Rick Hunter in Robotech and Peter Parker in Spider-Man 4, then he’d have to start Spider-Man right after finishing with Robotech (assuming Robotech wraps sometime in ’09).

Can’t wait for Robotech (I’m an optomist) and I’m glad they will have at least one more go with the Spider-Man film franchise. I liked Spider-Man 3, but it wasn’t the send-off I was hoping for.

Provided that taut Tobey Maguire doesn’t go to pot (or unless he is recast with, like, Jake Gyllenhaal or Vincent Chase), Spider-Man 4 is a go and being eyed for a May 2011 release date.
“Nobody’s signed anything on any dotted lines and I don’t think there’s an actual script yet, but as we all know [that’s just a detail],” The Closer‘s J.K. Simmons (aka J. Jonah Jameson) tells us.

Aside from Maguire’s involvement and the matter of a director (“Maybe Sam [Raimi] will direct again?” Simmons muses), the big question surrounds No. 4’s No. 1 baddie. My vote goes to Lizard (Dylan Baker has played Dr. Curt Connors twice, in Parts 2 and 3), though some spec it could be Vulture (too ugly, I say) or Kraven (ditto).
