      This is the reason I refused to watch any post-Brosnan "007" movies. (Yes, there have been several other Bonds before him but Pierce is the one I grew up with.)


      Casino Royale is the best Bond movie to date, from any actor who has ever played Bond. Period. Brosnan's Bond is a leftover from the old days, and even Goldeneye wasn't really that good beyond the Russian hottie.
      As for Spiderman 4, good riddance. 3 was just about the worst thing I had ever seen. I kept thinking "there's no way Raimi would make a film this bad," so I suffered through the thing at the theater, hoping in each new scene my patience and suffering would be rewarded. Nope, just more and more garbage. It was atrocious. Spiderman 2 was the best of them.
      This latest move is typical of Hollywood politics. Raimi wasn't going to be forced into making another Spiderman like 3, so Sony said fine, you aren't going to and immediately issued this PR. For some reason they're thinking they can find someone better than Raimi to do the next one, more Dark Knight like. Good friggin luck, Sony.

      I always thought Raimi's were entertaining but overly campy. If they don't totally screw this up (which I'm thinking they will), it would be nice if they could take a slightly more serious tone.

      You can't really have Spiderman without it being campy... I mean, seriously. He wears red and blue and dresses like a spider. We're not talking fear-inducing like the bat suit...
      The best thing about this news, besides the fact we won't have to suffer through another Spiderman 3, is that Raimi's moving on to start the Warcraft movie. I'm dying to see how that pans out.

      Spider-Man 4 would have marginally uninteresting to me as a viewer after not like 3 and only being a casual viewer of the franchise in generaly, but a complete reboot will not get any of my money unless it is somehow the best superhero movie ever (not possible). While I may not have been a huge fan for the most part I thought the movies did an ok job balancing campy with the more modern dark superhero dynamic.
      I really enjoyed Tobey Maguire and his portrayal of Peter Parker and I can't see them getting someone who can play the role as well. I'm wondering who they would even put in the role because they can't go with an unknown as it will not bring in the $. I don't know why but I see them going after someone like Anton Yelchin.
      The other problem I have with this is it is setting a precedent for movie studios to completely do whatever with franchises. This isn't like getting two movies in 5 years, this is taking a wildly successful franchise and scraping it to 1. make more money, 2. because you don't want to give artistic license to your director. Hell, if they don't do another X-Men: Origins move we could have a complete reboot of that coming to because of this.

      I was not looking forward to a Spiderman 4 (Raimi or not) and I'm not looking to a reboot of the series so soon either. I said it before, there are other Marvel properties to explore, leave Spidey alone for a good while, too much damage was done in part 3.
      I vote for Emma Stone as Mary Jane in a future movie...

      My own sentiments echo most on here. I was flabbergasted when I read this today. It's still a fresh franchise despite the third movie.
      With a good story and less studio interference than the third film received, the fourth could've been good and would've made a boatload of money.
      Now Sony is going to have to somehow market this as a reboot, which is going to be a tough sell considering the franchise isn't like Bond in which each film can contain a completely separate story, characters, etc. People are pretty much invested in Raimi's story already. It made Sony a ton of money.
      Awful, AWFUL decision on Sony's part.

      i really hope spiderman 4 fails. despite the failings of spiderman 3, sam raimi resurrected spiderman for the big screen, not to mention practically the superhero movie genre in general.
      I know that marvel/disney doesnt have the movie rights to spiderman, but I wonder what they have to say about this...
      the movie industry in general is a big failure because of the michael bays of this world. he can whip out a blockbuster movie with a couple hundred million, SFX, sex appeal, and make 5x that at the box office. I'm not a movie snob that criticizes mainstream appeal and not having an oscar worthy plot for a superhero movie, but Sony is doing exactly that here by trying to push out a blockbuster by a short timeframe, thinking money and SFX is all they need to make a lot of money.

      I can't remember the source, but I heard Bruce Cambell is playing Mysteryo in Spidey 3 (short bit) [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Bruce Campbell actually played a small part in every Spidey film, a little nod to the Evil Dead saga that Raimi directed way back when..

      I grew up with Brosnan as well, and thought it couldn't get any better... but Craig IS James Bond.
      Can't picture anyone but Tobey being spiderman, either.... hmm. Although I think Malkovich would've been an AWESOME choice for Vulture. Maybe Sony's big bucks would bring Kingpin to life.. I think he would be a good villian to explore..

      Agreed.
      As much as I love Pierce Brosnan, they were the worst Bond movies since Lazenby.

      You guys are nuts. I loved Brosnan as Bond... especially the one where he went to the Medterranean island to renunite with an old lover, and may or may not have been the young girls father, and he sang those upbeat songs...
      Wait, What??

      From what I've read, Timothy Dalton tried to be the closest to the written Bond, as Ian Fleming envisioned.
      But really, I can't stand Dalton.
      Back to Spidey....

      Shia won't get it. Unless Sony wants Spiderman to be a farce.
      I wouldn't be surprised if Jayden Smith or Connor Cruise was thrown into the role.

      Those two are way to young though. I don't even think Smith is a teenager yet and the Cruise kid won't even be a recognizable actor unless he kills it in Red Dawn. Just because they want to restart this in high school doesn't mean they'll choose someone who is actually that age, I mean that is rarely ever the case, especially if they want the timeline to progress quicker after the first movie they couldn't choose someone who is even 16 or so. My guess is whoever they choose will be 18-25. If they get someone who is much younger looking, like Maguire was, then they could go a few years older but I doubt they will.

      As unhappy as hardcore fans would be Pattinson is kinda an ideal choice that I wouldn't be surprised to see execs go with. He is young, attractive, and has a ridiculously loyal following of teenage girls that will pay to see him no matter what he is in. With that said, the filming for the reboot might conflict w/ a final Twilight movie and he would be so fresh off that franchise there seems to be too much association with that character to really get him view as Peter Parker and not his Twilight character.
