http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=62315 Apparently Sam Raimi wanted more creative control over the fourth film as he realized 3 was pretty lame but then the script the studio gave him (which was written by five people) was worse than Spiderman 3 with three villians crammed into it. So maybe this is a good thing. Raimi walked away from four because he felt he couldn't make a quality film by the 2011 release date seeing as how they hadn't even gone into production yet. Other articles are stating the script they're using for this one are going to have a grittier film - Batman Begins, the Dark Knight type of feel. That's fine and dandy but since when has Spiderman been gritty and dark? I'll reserve judgment on that aspect until I see the film. However I can't hold back judgment concerning the fact that it will focus on a teenage Peter Parker dealing with teen issues and his new superpowers....With no Sam Raimi.
