Matt, one of the commenters here at Screen Rant mentioned a few days ago that despite reports to the contrary, Tobey Macguire had stated that if Sam Raimi and the rest of the gang return for Spider-Man 4, that he (Tobey) would as well. Most of the movie sites have been stating recently that Macguire was in fact NOT interested in a fourth Spider-Man movie, period.
Well today there’s confirmation that Macguire said that over at SciFiWire. (So Matt, who is YOUR source?)
“Well, it’s possible that we make another movie, it all depends on if there’s a story worth telling. …if they come up with a good movie, and the whole team wants to get back together, and we feel like we can make a good movie that’s worth making, then I’m up for it.”
I don’t think we should expect production to start on another as soon as Spider-Man 3 hits theaters, though. I’m betting everyone is feeling the need for a break, and that Raimi has other projects he’d like to work on.
