Hmmm… this PIRATES article from iF has a quote from Amy Pascal, head of Sony Studios, that we haven’t seen before:
A fourth installment of SPIDER-MAN has been in the works for more than a month, with the studio circling screenwriters it may tap.
“If you want the kind of longevity we’re hoping for with SPIDER-MAN, you have to think of them as stand-alone movies, not ‘1-2-3-4,’ ” says Amy Pascal, Sony Pictures’ studio chairman. “They’re sort of like the James Bond stories.”
So, is this the gentle way of telling us that Raimi, Maguire, and Dunst WON’T be back for number four? Sounds that way to us.
