With Spider-Man 3 just months away, Sony has revealed their plans for the franchise. The first official steps have been taken towards Spidey 4. Who would I like to see in part 4? Perhaps a return of Venom and possibly Carnage at his side, and also I think Electro or the Lizard could be cool. What would be awesome is a Sinister Six, but I just don't see that happening. Anyways, here is the story as posted on SuperheroHype.com:
Superhero Hype! has learned exclusively from a very reliable source that Spider-Man screenwriter David Koepp is in talks with Sony Pictures to write Spider-Man 4!
Our source tells us that the studio is really excited about Spider-Man 3 after having seen a first cut of the movie. Add to that the phenomenal reaction to the screenings of footage at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago and the momentum leading up to this point from last summer's Comic-Con, which have sparked the studio to approach Koepp about penning the fourth film's screenplay.
Koepp is not signed yet, but the studio is definitely moving forward with another installment.
Keopp recently finished the script for Indiana Jones 4 which received the green light from George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford. Besides the first Spider-Man movie, he has written such blockbusters as War of the Worlds, Jurassic Park, Panic Room, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Mission: Impossible and Carlito's Way.
The first two "Spider-Man" films earned $1.6 billion dollars total worldwide. Spider-Man 3 kicks-off the summer on May 4.
