As Sony Pictures Entertainment preps the fourth installment of Spider-Man (now on its third rewrite), the studio has hired screenwriter James Vanderbilt to pen Spider-Man 5 and Spider-Man 6. James Vanderbilt penned the first draft of Spiderman 4 before it was taken over by Gary Ross. According to Variety, Raimi didn’t embrace all of Vanderbilt’s ideas, but execs at Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios have. Unfortunately, sources claim that if Raimi, Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst don’t return, Vanderbilt’s script would be the blueprint for a franchise reboot. The possibility of Raimi not returning is pretty high since he only returned for the fourth film once losing out to Guillermo Del Toro on The Hobbit. Quite frankly, I am not so sure that the studio or anyone for that matter will gain from rebooting the Spider-Man franchise. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a box office disappointment, as fans would be extremely frustrated with the decision, especially considering that the first two movies were met with such positive reviews from both critics and fans alike.
