IGN caught up with Spider-Man director Sam Raimi at SXSW to discuss his latest film, Drag Me to Hell, they asked him about everyone's favorite wallcrawler.
According to Raimi, he has yet to decide on the villain for Spider-Man 4, though he has firmer plans for the film's love interest.We all know Kirsten Dunst will be in Spider-Man 4 and all the Spider-Man movies. After Spider-Man 2 and the even worse Spider-Man 3, I was hoping for a new director and cast.
"Right now, I'm working with the production team," he explained. "I'm in the earliest stages of working with the writer, trying to work out a story."
He added, "We're closing in on Spider-Man's adversary or adversaries... but I think Sony is going to want to release the Spider-Man announcements themselves."
When asked if Mary Jane Watson or Gwen Stacy would take centre stage in terms of romance, Raimi was a little more forthcoming.
"I'm hoping that Kirsten Dunst, who plays Mary-Jane] will be in it, but we're still talking about that," he revealed. "Definitely, she's got to be in it. It wouldn't be the Spider-Man series without her."
