Sony has announced that Peter Parker will sprog his next messy-web in May of 2011, says Variety.
The soon-to-shoot â€œSpider-Man 4â€ â€“ which reunites the â€˜Goldenâ€™ team of Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and Sam Raimi â€“ will hit standard theatres and IMAX on May 6, 2011. Itâ€™ll be the first Summer tentpole release of the year.
Another superhero flick, â€œThe First Avenger : Captain Americaâ€, had originally been scheduled to open that day â€“ but Marvel decided recently to push it back to July 22.
â€œThorâ€, another comic-book flick, will be out shortly after â€œSpider-Man 4â€ â€“ on June 17.
The last two â€œSpider-Manâ€ pics were also released in Imax theaters, and by the time the next one bows, Imax and Sony should benefit as there will be more of the large-format theaters in the marketplace.
“Our network has grown significantly, and we continue to roll out new theaters virtually every week, giving more moviegoers the opportunity to experience the movie in Imax,” said Imax CEO Richard L. Gelfond.
The Gary Ross-penned â€œSpider-Man 4â€ is rumoured to be the final instalment for Raimi and stars Maguire and Dunst, with suggestions the studio may either recast or reboot the series for â€œSpider-Man 5â€ and â€œSpider-Man 6â€.
