From Entertainment Weekly; "Next spider=man will be a gritty and contemporary reboot"
This whole affair sounds like a disaster 'caused by a studio who's obsessed with reaching a target date.
I'm not a fan of the first three films either, but there's plenty of stuff in there that works.
I'd prefer they'd get two new leads and a director with new ideas, but who's still respectful to what's already established.
It would be a waste to get rid of the cast for the Bugle staff, or Dylan Baker as Dr. Connors, just because they couldn't get a sequel work with the original director.
This whole "reboot in 2012" probably won't last, anyway. It's reminding me too much of the time when Warner Brothers just had no idea what to do with Batman and Superman.
How long and how many false starts did it take before we actually got a new Batman and Superman movie?
I wouldn't be surprised if the same happens to Spidey and that we won't see another Spidey movie until the end of this decade. Maybe it won't even be made by Sony anymore by that time.
