Raimi (director) is slated to begin production on "Spider-Man 4" in 2010, with the fourth Spidey installment tentatively scheduled to hit theaters in May 2011.
There is NO finished screenplay yet, and neither star Tobey Maguire nor director Sam Raimi is "officially" committed to work on the next installment(s), but rumors are they are interested - but Sony has paid Marvel to renew its rights.
Raimi has said that they are closing in on Spider-Man's adversary or adversaries for the fourth pic. "All the characters or villains or villains, whatever we decide to do will be from Stan Lee's creations or those that came after him," he said.
Mary Jane Watson? If it was up to Raimi, definitely: "I’m hoping she'll (Kirsten Dunst) be in it and I'm planning on having a story with her in it... It wouldn't be the Spider-Man series without her."
Until Sony officially makes a public announcement, this is all just rumor!
Release Date:May 6, 2011
