Untitled Spider-Man Reboot


If you haven’t heard yet, Spider-Man 4 is coming out in the summer of 2012. Andrew Garfield (The Social Network), who made his presence known at last week’s Golden Globes with his botched presenting, replaces Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker, Emma Stone (Easy A) takes Gwen Stacy from Bryce Dallas Howard and Marc Webb ((500) Days of Summer) has a monumental sophomoric directing task, taking over Sam Raimi‘s wildly successful trilogy.

The story goes Sony was in talks with Raimi to make at least three more films, but Raimi dropped out due to time constraints that he felt he wouldn’t be able to get Spider-Man 4 out by what would have been May of this year. This makes no sense because it loses over a year to be released with the new crew, but that’s the route Sony decided to take.

Filming began in Los Angeles last month, and this week, coverage of the shooting (bad choice of word, CNN?) was posted all over the internet showing a close-up of the new costume and web-shooter.

It’s interesting to note that in the almost four years since Spider-Man 3 was released, here’s all the work Raimi and Maguire have done. Not that they ever need to work again. The trilogy brought in $2.5 billion at the box office.

  3. Why do they reboot . They must understand the value off originality Marvel Mast never reboot him movies ever again his fans hate rebooted versions so I think Marvel must not reboot any other movie in future they have seen an example you all know well about fantastic 4 rebooted this year that was worthless.

  4. As much as I agree with you, Chris, I understand why they do it. A flop here or there could get you fired from your nice studio job so why not make remakes and sequels that are guaranteed to make hundreds of millions of dollars? Even the most awesome script isn’t guaranteed to be a good movie so you’re always hesitant with original material. I admit I’d probably do it too.

    Hence, the reason for the handful of superhero and sequel movies yet to come out in the next two years (Thor, Green Lantern, Men in Black III, Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall and the rest on this long list – http://www.movie-moron.com/?page_id=612).

  5. I’m concerned with Hollywood’s bout with reboot-mania. Along with Spidey, there are plans to re-imagine Superman. Granted, Zach Snyder is directing and David S. Goyer and Christopher and Jonathon Nolan (the minds behind The Dark Knight) are attached. (http://salon.com/a/srBUfAA) But it’s been a scant 5 years since Superman Returns, which wasn’t a particularly bad or successful movie. I don’t see the need for another Superman or Spiderman movie.

    I’d rather Hollywood focus their attention and movie on original concepts, or at least concepts that aren’t still fresh in our minds.
