Heya folks, After having been so terribly disappointed by Spidey's latest flick, I immediately began searching for behind-the-scenes info on the next film, and then remembered a report I'd heard back around the holidays that said that Raimi was planning to make the 3rd and 4th films a two-parter. That would have made a lot more sense, given how squished this film was by including a full-fledged Venom character. I mean, introducing Edie as a jerk in this film, and then having him be taken over by Venom at the end, to be played out in the next movie...that would have been good. I mean, really...why blow Edie up? He could have returned as Venom in the next one. I guess Raimi really doesn't care for the character... More to the point, a quote from Cromwell on S4: But never fear comic fans, the Stacy family will have a much bigger role to play in future installments, veteran actor James Cromwell told MTV News. Asked if his character, Captain George Stacy, meets the same grisly end in "Spider-Man 3" that he does in the comics, Cromwell playfully replied, "They haven't shot that [scene] yet. That's the next one." Not much has been confirmed for the fourth Spidey yet, other than that David Koepp is writing the screenplay. and more: Will the "Spider-Man" franchise become the next James Bond or Star Trek, two of the longest series of films in history? It might happen, as Sony Pictures chief executive Michael Lynton told BBC News that "everybody has every intention of making a fourth, a fifth and a sixth and on and on." There would be "as many as we can make good stories for", he pledged. "Everybody's been so busy trying to get this one out that that's been the focus. When everybody comes up for air, we can think about how to make the next one." Obviously, I think it's safe to say the Lizard will be in the next movie. But let's not forget that the one-armed professor kept a small glob of Venom... DISCUSS!!
