Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire Are Back! "Spider-Man 4"

Sony has cut a deal with director Sam Raimi and actor Tobey Maguire to return for the fourth "Spider-Man" adventure! Rumor has it that Dunst is expected to return as well.

Sony hopes to film both "Spider-Man 4" and "Spider-Man 5" back-to-back. There are no details regarding how Sony got the team back, but do we really need to be told? We all know Sony must have ditched out half the budget of "Spider-Man 3" to get Maguire back; God knows it probably took just as much for Raimi.

Regarding villains, Nikki Finke's Deadline Hollywood Daily reports that “once you find out who the villain is, you’ll know who’s playing it.” My guess, and the guess of many, many others, is Lizard will finally make his movie appearance. Dylan Baker has played Dr. Conners for the last three movies-- It's a perfect set up.

Another possibility is the return of Sandman. Thomas Hayden Church's character floated away freely at the end of "Spider-Man 3" and I wouldn't mind seeing some closure with that.

Well it's good to know Raimi and Maguire are back with a superior scribe! Who is everyone's guess for the villain? Lizard? Sandman? Someone else.

If you don't want to guess, rest assured you'll find out eventually: "Spider-Man 4" is set for a May 2011 release.
