Why was Spider-Man 4 Canceled??? Raimi, Maguire out…Reboot planned

Spider-Man 4 Canceled, New Film Planned for 2012

According to Deadline Hollywood, “Spider-Man 4″ has been canceled after director Sam Raimi pulled out of the project. Instead, Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios are “rebooting” the franchise, with a film focusing on Spider-Man’s alter-ego Peter Parker as “a teenager grappling with both contemporary human problems and amazing super-human crises.”

Spider-Man 4 was to star Tobey Maguire in the title role, a character he played in the previous 3 films of the same name. The newest edition was expected to be released in 2011 but was recently put on hold due to creative differences. The new developments mean Maguire and his fellow castmates are out, while this new film will head into production with a new team attached to it. The anticipated release date is summer of 2012.

Spider-Man 4 delayed by villain dispute

A clash over the villain for Spider-Man 4 has prompted Sony Pictures to delay the start of production and could bump the film from its announced May 11, 2011, release.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Sam Raimi wants the classic Spider-Man foe the Vulture as the lead antagonist while the studio is set on another villain — anyone other than ol’ Adrian Toomes, apparently — plus a romantic subplot involving the Black Cat.

Just three week ago Sony denied a report by IESB that production had been placed on “indefinite hold” because of the dispute over the villain.

If this sounds familiar, it’s probably because Raimi had pushed for the Vulture to appear alongside Sandman in Spider-Man 3 before being convinced by Producer Avi Arad to use Venom instead.
