Announced today, Sony and Marvel are not proceeding with the forth installment of the Spider-Man movie franchise and are instead rebooting it with more stories with Peter Parker in high school. Along with the cancellation, Sam Raimi, Toby Maguire and Kirsten Dunst are all separating from the movie mytho as well.
I personally am disappointed with this. In all honesty, I don't really care that they are rebooting it, I am merely saddened that a very successful franchise is now going the same way as everything else (both Superman and the Fantastic Four are set fro rebooted movies). Say what you will about Spider-Man 3 but there is no denying that everybody involved in these movies have brought something huge and great to movie-goers. I just hope this doesn't push audiences away, not wanting to waste another 9 years on something they have already (kinda)seen.
