Raimi and Maquire walk from Spidey 4
So it's no surprise now that Sam Raimi and Tobey Maquire have exited the fourth Spider-Man film. So what does this mean for the series? And what exactly will happen with The Vulture, now that it has been confirmed that John Malkovich has signed on? There are so many questions that need to be answered -- and quite frankly, I don't think Sony cares all that much.
They seem to be on the reboot bandwagon now...and actually, this just may work for the next Spidey film. Maybe a film in the tradition of Batman Begins, and along the lines of James Cameron's original Spider-Man idea that was a much darker film.
Hopefully some updates start rolling in so we can get a feel for what's coming. Hopefully a solid director and new leading man can save this franchise.
Stay tuned for any and all updates...
