Less than 2 weeks after we reported on Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire signing on to return for Spider-Man 4 and 5, word now comes that Maguire will be coming back… with perks.

According to The Times, Maguire will not only earn a reported $50 million(!) for both films. He’ll also be granted “family time” – getting to leave the set in the early mornings and evenings to spend time with his wife and 22-month old daughter.

That has supposedly been one of the main issues in the negotiations between Maguire and Sony. He’s willing to spend the 6 months or so filming both films back-to-back. But he’s demanding he has to be able to see his family during the shoot. Granted I don’t have any kids. So I can’t relate.

But I’ll bet money played a pretty big factor too.

Sony is also expected to announce in the next few days whether or not Kirsten Dunst will return as Webhead’s favorite red-head Mary Jane Watson.

I think I can speak for others when I say I’m more interested in knowing who will be helming the forthcoming Spider-Man sequels. I don’t know anyone who wants to see Dunst come back.

No offense, Kirsten.

Spider-Man 4 is currently aiming for a May 2011 release.
