As a new Spider-Man film swings into theaters, here's a look back at Sam Raimi's original plans for a fourth Spider-Man starring Tobey Maguire.
Marvel Comics released a cryptic teaser that ignited speculation about everything from a Fantastic Four crossover to an adaptation of Spider-Man 4.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is a happy ending, of sorts, for the Vulture, the classic Marvel villain who's repeatedly missed out on big-screen stardom.
In concept art from Jeffrey Henderson, Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man 4" featured the Vulture as a primary antagonist and Mysterio as a minor villain.
Director Sam Raimi reveals he was unhappy with Spider-Man 3 and hoped to end his series "on a very high note," but he just couldn't get a script together for a fourth movie.
The Marc Webb-helmed reboot for Marvel's famed web-slinging wall-crawler will bow in theaters on July 3, 2012 and feature the full 3D treatment taking viewers on a tour through the concrete canyons of Manhattan with a teen Peter Parker.
