Spiderman 4, no more!

Wah-wah, Spidey fans! Sony Pictures has announced that they are cutting ties with director Sam Raimi and cast members Tobey MaGuire and Kirsten Dunst! Some high-ups actually did watch Spiderman 3 and notice its mega suck-itude!

The new plan – reboot the franchise, setting Peter Parker back in his high school days. New director, new cast, new look.

The only sad part I see in this is that Raimi is out of a job. He said: “Working on the ‘Spider-Man’ movies was the experience of a lifetime for me. While we were looking forward to doing a fourth one together, the studio and Marvel have a unique opportunity to take the franchise in a new direction, and I know they will do a terrific job.”

Dear Sam Raimi: Drag Me To Hell was fucking brilliant, and you should continue to make way awesomely rad horror movies that finally put the nail in the torture porn coffin. Love, The Littlest Winslow.

Let’s be serious, here. Spiderman 1 was a terrific movie filled with eye-popping special effects, a decent cast, and great action and fun. Spidey 2 was a carbon copy: the same old hijinks with a decent plot. And 3? I could barely get through it. In this new Avatar-centric/3-D world that we live in…would anyone even care about a fourth Spidey film? I know I wouldn’t. Despite whining and moaning from fanboys, this is a solid move, Sony.
