Tommy Wiseau, the director of 2003's infamous film The Room, wants to helm a revival of Sam Raimi's canceled Spider-Man 4.
On Twitter, Wiseau shared a fake poster featuring the series' iconic font and spider-logo, captioning it, "Spider-Man 4 - A Tommy Wiseau Film." The tweet may be teasing a spiritual successor to Tommy Wiseau's The Dark Knight, in which the director collaborated with the Nerdist on a parody of Christopher Nolan's superhero classic.
Considering Wiseau's comedic social media presence, it seems pretty clear that the director isn't serious about another installment in Raimi's coveted Spider-Man series. With Sony having recently introduced mainstream audiences to the concept of the Spider-Verse in last year's Oscar-winning film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, though, it's not impossible for a Spider-Man voiced by Tommy Wiseau to make it on screen.
Rumors about a comic book adaptation for Raimi's Spider-Man 4 surfaced online over the summer when Marvel's social media pages cryptically posted the number "4" made out of spider webs. These rumors were quickly put to rest when it was discovered that the post was actually a countdown for the announcement of J.J. and Henry Abraham's ongoing Spider-Man series.
Tommy Wiseau is best known for 2003's The Room, a film considered among the worst that the medium has to offer.
