Rumor has it that the next two installments of "Spider-Man" movies, "Spider-Man 4" and "Spider-Man 5", may be shot back-to-back. But, when exactly the fourth superhero film is coming to the big screen is still a big question. Latest report though suggested that the action tidbit may not come so soon after all since the movie is more likely prepared for 2010 release.
Talking to IESB about the fourth movie status, Marvel Vice Chairman Peter Cuneo gives out idea on the possible release date, but insists that the decision still lays on the hands of Sony Pictures which have just renewed their rights on making "Spider-Man" film. "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," so claimed the Marvel executive. "They have given us their re-up payment for that film so you know they're going to make it within a reasonable timeframe."
On the chance of the returning of Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and director Sam Raimi, Cuneo revealed that the decision on bringing back the key people is up to Sony. "Sony may be looking at some issues with the cast and so on, I think they have to make some decisions," he explained briefly on the matter. Meanwhile, concerning the film script, it has been reported before that the co-scribbler of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" James Vanderbilt has been signed to write the script and has turned it in.
