Connections Between 'Spider-Man 4' and 'Venom' Addressed


Asked whether Spider-Man and Venom will share the same universe in the new movies, director Sam Raimi expresses his cluelessness on the matter.

"Spider-Man 4" is in development for 2011 target release, while "Venom (2010)" solo movie has got a thumb up to be made. The next question arising will be whether the two movies have a connection to each other. MTV has caught up with "Spider-Man" series director Sam Raimi and asked him about the issue.

"It hasn't come up to me," the 49-year-old responded when presented with a possibility of the two Marvel characters sharing a movie universe. "I think that the studio is just letting me work with the writers and trying to make the best stories possible for this universe," he added as referring to the fourth movie for the web-slinging superhero. "I don't know if Venom is a separate universe or not."

"Spider-Man 4" is produced by Avi Arad, Grant Curtis and Laura Ziskin. Tobey Maguire will return to star as Peter Parker aka Spider-Man, and Kirsten Dunst will reprise her Mary Jane Watson role. Production may start in March 2010, Raimi suggested earlier. This fourth installment of "Spider-Man" is expected to open wide in the U.S. on May 6, 2011.

Venom, in the meantime, was introduced to the fans in 2007's "Spider-Man 3" as Topher Grace portrayed the evil Spider-Man look-alike, humanly known as Eddie Brock. The solo movie for the sentient alien will be produced by Avi Arad and Marvel. Gary Ross is set to produce and rewrite the script with a possibility to direct. There is still no official announcement about the actors that will star in this spin-off to "Spider-Man 3" or whether Grace will reprise his role or not.
