Spider-Man 4 News Roundup

carnage lizard Spider Man 4 News RoundupSoooo…. The prints of Spider-Man 3 running in movie theaters are barely dry and already a couple of days ago news began surfacing that yes, there will be a Spider-Man 4. Heck, there will even be a 5, 6 and beyond.

batsuit nipples Spider Man 4 News RoundupYeah, we’ll just have to see about that. There is no doubt that Sam Raimi (director of the first three Spiderman movies) is not about to make a lifelong career out of ol’ web head. What does that mean? That either a new director or directors will be brought in, and each one will want to put his own personal mark on the franchise. Sure, it could turn out to be a good thing, but lets keep one thing in mind, shall we?

Nipples on the Batsuit.


BBC news had a report a few days back where a Sony movie exec confirmed Spider-Man movies will be coming out until the Apocalypse (or whenever they run out of “good stories”). icon smile Spider Man 4 News Roundup

Over at Freeze Dried Movies they have a source that says that the villains for Spiderman 4 will be the Lizard (aka Doc Connors, Peter’s college professor, who’s appeared in all three movies so far) and… Carnage. For those of you not aware, Carnage is like Venom on steroids. The word is that the next film would have to be “darker” to accomodate the Carnage character.

Darker than Spider-Man 3? And after the great (*cough*) job they did with Venom in this one?

Hoo boy.

I suppose you can go pretty dark in a PG-13 movie (look at the progressively creepier Harry Potter movies), but Spider-Man appeals to the little kiddies all the way down to kindergarten. In the comics, Carnage is a serial killer. Great stuff to bring little Timmy to, don’t ya think?

Also, since three antagonists worked so well in this movie, there’s also talk of adding Black Cat to the mix for the next film.

Finally, although Raimi stated a few weeks ago that he might be up for number four, the studio has said that the franchise could go on without him, Kirsten Dunst or Tobey Maguire. The vibe from various interviews is that they’ll do it as a team or they won’t do it at all. It wouldn’t be the first time that a movie studio replaced directors and lead actors in a superhero franchise. They did it quite successfully with Batman Begins and they’re in the process of doing it with The Incredible Hulk.

  1. We can definitely use less “soap opera” in the next one. They need a HUGE change in direction. I’m done watching weepy Peter Parker.

    Done.

  2. Personally i think spidey could use a turn around. the’ve treated him as a childish wussy and made the whole spider man theme horrible in the way they portray the vilians. Going darker would be a good idea, and a new cast wouldn’t be bad either. When they made batman darker in the new film, it was a whole lot better, why not for spidey? Plus Carnage is awesome!!

  4. hey you know what villains they should put in carnage and doppelganger_spidey and carnage and venom now that would be an awesome fight between just spider-man and carnage and doppelganger-spidey and venom and if any of u don’t know who doppelganger-spidey is or what he looks like then just go to google and type in evil six armed spider-man pictures and if the pictures don’t come up then hit the images button and click the first picture u see he looks pretty kool

  5. ok and to what ryan said way up there who cares if the kids wont understand the movie if they put in carnage its not a kids movie there is killing in it and they should put carnage in it cuz he is one of spider-mans worst enemies besides from venom ……..
