Bei CBR gibt es ein Interview mit Sam Raimi, u.a. über "Spider-Man 4"...
[...] Do you have any inclination yet towards whether you’d like to produce or direct the next Spider-Man movie, or is too early to call?
Sam: I think that’s going to be up to Sony Pictures, and I think that it’s too early for them to say, actually. But currently I’m working on... well, not now, but as soon as the writers strike’s over... I’m going to begin working with a writer on the screenplay.
Is it important to you that the story follows on from the first three? I mean, how important is internal continuity to you? Can you go Evil Dead-style and change details a little bit, maybe change the story up a little bit?
Sam: If I was writing it I would have a very strong opinion about that, but we’re hiring a writer to come up with his own take. Sony was willing to go either way, we’ll just have to wait and see what the writer comes up with. I think anything’s possible, though.
I mean, there’s been so many different versions, it doesn’t have to follow the movies that we’ve made. I’d very much like to see Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man, so I have a personal interest in that, but certainly anything’s possible. Spider-Man’s such a big character in the comic books that he could endure a lot of different interpretations. You could start over or you could start with a different aspect of the story than I’ve focused on in the pictures I’ve made, we’ll just have to wait and see what the writer comes up with. [...]
WizardUniverse.com sprach mit Sam Raimi, u.a. über "Spider-Man 4"...
[...] Looking back, you’ve worked on Spider-Man in some way for nearly eight years. Has the excitement stayed with you?
RAIMI: I’m just as excited about the character, and so in that sense, yes. Although the physical energy level between how I felt before I started shooting versus what was left of me on the last day of photography, I was so exhausted at the end of "Spider-Man 3" I can’t tell you. My love for the characters and my passion for the stories are the same, but I was just a shell of the person that I was after all of those movies.
If you had to take a break and pick a director to replace you on the franchise, is there anyone at the top of your list?
RAIMI: Because I love Spider-Man I would just say - I don’t want to pick someone. I don’t know if I’ll be directing the picture or not, but I’d like to say that it would be somebody that was the best gift I could give to Spider-Man - someone who understands him and loves him and could bring his passion and love to the character. A character director probably; no one else. [...]
EW.com berichtet über "Spider-Man 4"...
A writers' strike may be upon us, but that hasn't slowed Sony's plans for Spider-Man 4. James Vanderbilt, the writer behind David Fincher's gritty thriller Zodiac, has been hired to pen the script for the new Spidey installment. (Vanderbilt may not be able to write during the strike, but the WGA can't stop him from thinking, right?) It's unknown whether Sam Raimi will direct the four-quel, but he's likely to be involved in some way. The studio is scheduling the film for a 2009 release.
IESB sprach mit Sam Raimi, u.a. über "Spider-Man 4"...
[...] Sony is currently meeting with new writers to come up with new and fresh ideas for the Spider-Man films. Is it a reboot? He hasn’t heard of a reboot but they are coming up with fresh, new ideas to see which direction they are going to go from here.
He was also asked if Tobey Maguire’s new production of the Robotech films would effect a Spider-Man production, but he just simply doesn’t know.
Thus far, he has not been asked to come back and direct or write. [...]

'Spider-Man 3' is still spinning its B.O. web around the world, taking in nearly $50 million internationally over the weekend.

Well, it's not "Star Wars."
"People thought 'Star Wars' was silly, too," he added, with a wink. "But it wasn't." [...]

CS! berichtet nochmals über die "Spider-Man 3"-Rekorde...
[...] Columbia Pictures' Spider-Man 3 exploded into conventional theaters and IMAX, smashing the opening weekend record previously held by Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest ($135.6 million). Spidey earned an incredible $148 million in a record 4,252 theaters domestically, which also resulted in the biggest average per theater ever - $34,807. Spider-Man 2 opened to $88.1 million in 2004 and Spider-Man to $114.8 million in 2002.
On Friday, the third film broke the records for biggest opening day and single day, making $59 million compared to "Dead Man's Chest's" $55.8 million opening day.
The Sam Raimi-directed film added $227 million from May 1st through today internationally as well, bringing the worldwide total to $375 million! The studio is said to have spend $258 million on the production of the movie and another $100 million on the marketing. [...]
Bei AICN gibt es ein Interview mit Christopher Young, dem Komponisten des "Spider-Man 3" Soundtracks... Und CS! berichtet über die rekordverdächtigen Einspielergebnisse von "Spider-Man 3"...
According to Box Office Mojo and other internet sources, Spider-Man 3 has grossed an estimated $59 million on its opening day including a record number of sold out Thursday midnight screenings, estimated to have brought in $10 million of that amount. DeadlineHollywood reports that the third installment of Sony's blockbuster franchise grossed $104 million worldwide yesterday making May 4, 2007 the highest single day gross in box office history.
That opening gross is compared to the $40 opening day for Spider-Man 2, which opened on a Wednesday in 2004, and the $43.6 million opening of the original Spider-Man, which opened on the exact same day five years ago.
If that number sticks, it will have topped the previous opening day record set last year by Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, which opened with $55.8 million and wound up setting a new opening weekend record with $135 million, an amount that Spider-Man 3 is very likely to surpass by Sunday. (George Lucas' Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith previously held the opening day record with $50 million on Thursday, May 19, 2005.)
Some early projections for the weekend are putting Spider-Man 3 in the range between $138 and $145 million for the weekend, allowing it to easily beat Dead Man's Chest's opening weekend record and to regain the record the original Spider-Man has held for four years prior. [...]

[...] All in all, Spider-Man 3 is a disappointment, a real let down. But it’s not bad. Just not what it should be. I know, I know. You have to see it anyway. That’s cool. But I hope you go in with some lowered expectations. I really wanted this to rock hard - and hell, so did the whole audience I saw it with. But what entered as a theatre full of excited fans, later slogged its way out in relative silence. [...]
Bei AICN gibt es eine "S3"-Kritik von Capone...
[...] The film has the series' most exciting action sequences, but their impact is dampened by some of the most profoundly limp character interactions between Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) and Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst), and between Peter and his elderly Aunt May (Rosemary Harris).
Returning director Sam Raimi has and will always be one of my favorite filmmakers to watch, and he absolutely shines in both his action directing and the nice bits of comedy in these films (Bruce Campbell's supporting work here--far more than the cameos he's made in the last two films--is his absolute best). But Raimi seems almost bored by the interpersonal relationships of his main characters, and focuses his energy on kick-ass fight scenes and his supporting players. [...]
CS! berichtet über die internationalen Einspielergebnisse...
Variety reports that Sony's Spider-Man 3 set records Tuesday in every one of the eight Asian territories in which it bowed. The film opens in dozens of other territories in the next few days, culminating Friday in its domestic launch on 4,253 theaters, the widest North American opening of all time.
The movie launched Tuesday in more than a dozen key territories, including Japan, France, Germany, Italy and South Korea. Another eight go today, with 30 more on Thursday (including China, Australia and Russia) and an additional 30 on Friday (including the U.K. and India).
European markets should report their initial tallies today. In its opening day Tuesday, Sony estimated that the movie hit ¥415 million ($3.47 million) in Japan, beating Spider-Man 2's ¥410 million. The first installment took in ¥347 million in its first day in Japan in 2004.
In Korea, the movie also beat out one-day marks for its predecessors, taking in 3.2 billion won ($3.44 million).
In Hong Kong, Spidey saw the biggest opening day of all time, with $HK7.5 million ($958,984), besting previous record holder Kung Fu Hustle.
The film also drew the biggest ever opening day of any film in Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines. In Taiwan, it saw the biggest weekday opening ever. [...]

We'll have his exact words shortly, but Raimi said that he hasn't had time to think of any involvement and he doesn't want to presume Sony would want him to direct.
He said there has to be a good story to tell and that "it'd be very hard to say goodbye to 'Spider Man.'" [...]

On the eve of what is expected to be the biggest Spider-Man yet, Entertainment Weekly learns that director Sam Raimi is seriously interested in directing The Hobbit, a choice that could potentially leave Spidey 4 without a director - and, says Kirsten Dunst, a leading lady.
Raimi's name has been floated in connection with The Hobbit ever since a very public dustup between Peter Jackson and New Line chairman Bob Shaye left the Lord of the Rings prequel without a director. Raimi went on the record for the first time about his potential involvement in the project during an exclusive interview with EW's Steve Daly for the magazine's Summer Movie Preview issue, on newsstands Friday: ''Peter Jackson might be the best filmmaker on the planet right now. But, um, I don't know what's going to happen next for me right now. First and foremost, those are Peter Jackson and Bob Shaye's films. If Peter didn't want to do it, and Bob wanted me to do it - and they were both okay with me picking up the reins - that would be great. I love the book. It's maybe a more kid-friendly story than the others.'' (If Raimi were to take on a complex, intense project like The Hobbit - the rights to which New Line/MGM only has for a limited amount of time - it could force Columbia to either push back its production schedule for Spider-Man 4 or find a new director for the franchise.)
Dunst says she hadn't heard any rumors about Raimi and The Hobbit until EW raised the subject in an interview. She says she can't imagine returning for Part 4 without both her director and her costar: ''It's disrespectful to the whole team, I think, to do that. And audiences aren't stupid. It'd be a big flop without me, Tobey, or Sam. That would really not be the smartest move. But they know that already. [Sony chief] Amy Pascal would never do that.'' Maguire has already expressed his ambivalence about returning for another sequel.
Sony's President of Production Matt Tolmach tells EW that the studio is cautiously optimistic about retaining the team that launched the Spidey franchise so spectacularly: ''Listen, we're making Spider-Man 4. Our hope, dream, and intention is to do it with Sam. But I don't have a crystal ball.''
Bei AICN gibt es die ersten vielversprechenden Kritiken zu "Spider-Man 3"...
[...] Raimi has proven himself a spider god thrice over now, and really I want this film to be the last one. It ends every major plot line and doesn’t leave much open, albeit it doesn’t really zip things shut either, but really this is a great ending. This is the most emotional, and epic entry in the series, and like its predecessors, it never loses sight that action is a bonus to the character drama, and not the main attraction, it really is amazing.
I loved this film and I think critics will too, and it will probably be the fan favorite as well, don’t worry guys; Raimi hasn’t let us down yet. [...]

Bei SciFi.com gibt es den letzten Stand in Sachen "Spider-Man 4"...
Tobey Maguire, who reprises the role of Peter Parker in the upcoming Spider-Man 3, told SCI FI Wire in February that he remained open to a fourth film, with reservations. This despite earlier reports that the third webslinger movie would be his last. Maguire is not contractually bound to do a fourth film.
"Well, it's possible that we make another movie," Maguire said in an interview. "It all depends on if there's a story worth telling. I feel very proud of the three movies that we've made. I feel like the stories all deserve to be told, and, you know, if they come up with a good movie, and the whole team wants to get back together, and we feel like we can make a good movie that's worth making, then I'm up for it."
His co-star, Kirsten Dunst (Mary Jane Watson), echoed the sentiment in a separate interview in February. And for her, it depended on whether or not writer/director Sam Raimi agreed to a fourth installment. "There's an openness at the end [of Spider-Man 3], which I like, but ... I feel like this is a trilogy unto itself," she said. "And I think if we venture into a fourth, it will be some time from now and in a new way. Because I don't think Sam can do that: continuing on this same course. I think he needs to venture as an artist and do other things; otherwise, none of us will have anything good to bring to the fourth. So I think we all need to venture out a little bit, and then maybe we'll come back together one day and do another one."
She added: "I would work with Sam on any movie he wanted to work on it with me, because I just adore that man."
For his part, Raimi hasn't said one way or another whether he'd do another movie. Producer Avi Arad has been quoted as saying he'd move ahead with a fourth Spider-Man with or without Maguire. [...]

Bei CS! kann man einen Blick auf das "Spider-Man 3" International-Poster werfen... CS! sprach mit Kirsten Dunst auf der ShoWest...
[...] at the press conference that preceded the awards ceremony, the question on many minds was whether she would be willing to make another movie in the "Spider-Man" franchise.
"Well, I think Sam has dedicated so much of his life, like more than ten years, to the 'Spider-Man' franchise with so much passion and love, the man is burnt out at this time," she told reporters. "I think he needs a long vacation to put his creativity towards something else and then maybe we'll revisit it. I told Sam that we should do a 'Spider-Man 4' that's completely low budget--'Evil Dead' style--where Mary Jane has eight children with very little special effects and then we'll get a whole new audience, we'd make a lot of money because it wouldn't cost as much and everyone would go see it."
When asked about the rumors that Sony is moving forward with a fourth movie with or without Raimi, Dunst was surprised that someone would even suggest it. "Do they want to give Sam Raimi a heart attack? That's evil. Sorry, that's not happening any time soon. I would just say no for Sam's sake so that he can have a break. We would all do it together because Sam, Tobey and I are a team now, but there's no way it's going to happen very soon. I just can't imagine that. We don't have the story to tell right now."
"I really have evolved as an actress and as a person from 1 to 3, so for me, the role has grown with me," Dunst said when asked about what she felt she has brought to the role of Mary Jane. "She's always a woman searching and she's always been someone that at that time of my life I could relate to. In this film, because we're older and the relationships are deeper than we've seen in the last two, it's only made all of our roles so much more meaningful to all of us. We never rest on our laurels with these films, we always try to make it better, and I think it'll really show in this third one." [...]

[...] Filming on the third instalment of the effects-heavy Spider-Man blockbuster has recently wrapped up and Maguire says while the studio is already talking about number four, he thinks he has reached the end of the road as lonely, super-powered photographer Peter Parker.
"To me it seems like this is a natural point for the team to break up because we have a lot of story conclusions that were going along for the main characters for the first two movies and we kind of tie almost everything up for the third movie," he says.
"It feels like a trilogy to me and it feels like the end." [...]
AICN berichtet über die WonderCon, u.a. über das "S3"-Panel...
[...] people finally got what they wanted to see: SPIDEY 3. Unfortunately there were no guests present and therefore no questions, so all we got was the kick-ass footage.
The footage began with an intro from Avi Arad apologising for the absence of Sam Raimi, who currently working on a film, but said we'd enjoy the clip. The new trailer (green band and all) will--I understand--be shown during HEROES this Monday.
It begins with Eddie Brock in a cathedral praying for God to kill Peter Parker. Next is Spidey jumping off the building window and swinging around the city; enjoying his new black threads. There's a scene where he and Curt Connors examine a piece of the symbiote, Connors explains what it is. The piece keeps trying to jump at Peter, who puts a glass over it. Connors: "it seems to really like you for some reason." Harry Osbourne is once again visited by the ghost of his father (returning Willem DaFoe) telling him "You know what you have to do." This then leads to new footage of Harry as the New Goblin chasing Peter (not Spidey) through the city. He throws pumpkin-bombs at him that sprout wings and chase Peter. Peter: "I hate those things."
There's a series of quick clips with MJ telling Peter she's worried about him, Peter throwing a pumpkin bomb at Harry and it exploding in Harry's face, and numerous other action shots (although NO Gwen Stacy or Sandman to be seen). Then comes the climax as Spidey is in the clock tower pulling the symbiote off. Brock looks up and says "Parker?" As Peter pulls the symbiote off in pieces, some lands on Brock's jacket. He tosses it aside until more lands on his hand. Peter finally gets free as the symbiote (looking like a CG oil-spill) drenches Brock. The screen goes black. THEN--for a good one 1/2 seconds (good enough for the human eye to make out and identify, but not long enough to linger on--in place of Brock, VENOM snarls at the screen. We then get the title card of the silver "3" over Spidey's red colours as they turn black.
But before it's over, a battle-damaged Spidey (with torn mask and costume like in the climax of part 1) hears Venom grownling at him in the dark, but can't see him. Before he can think, two slimy black hands give a lightining-fast grab at his head and pull him upward. THE END. Our WonderCon host proved himself a Master of the Obvious when he asked "Wanna see it again?" [...]

IFMagazine.com sprach mit Dylan Baker über "Spider-Man 3" und "Spider-Man 4"...
[...] Baker says that not only is he in this latest Spidey sequel, but his wife is playing Mrs. Stacy (Gwen’s mom and the Captain’s wife) which is an interesting departure from any version of the Stacy family in comics where mom is curiously absent.
"I am in SPIDER-MAN 3, and my wife Becky Ann Baker is also in the movie, she plays James Cromwell’s wife and Bryce Dallas Howard’s mother," says the actor. "Dr. Conners’ wife has not made an appearance yet, at least not that I know of."
Fans will not be seeing the Lizard, Dr. Conners scaly alter ego in this film, but look for "more" from the good doctor in the next movie.
"In this one I am still in my business suit and that’s all I’ll say. I’m kind of the guy that Peter Parker needs to come to whenever he has those quandaries about what’s going on," states Baker. But then continues on to explain, "All I can say is we’re going to see a lot more of [me] at some point if what Sam says is true, and Sam is the guy who knows, so I am sticking with him."
And would the actor be up for being a main villain in the next Spidey flick?
"Oh yeah [I’d be up for that]," he exclaims. "I’m friends with Alfred Molina and I just saw him the other day and he had so much fun doing Doc Ock, that for me it’s a no-brainer. So, put it in [the movie] and let’s go."

Now, we've done the third and the contracts are up. I guess it's just a little bit more up in the air than the other ones have been.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Tobey Maguire revealed a bit more about Spider-Man 3:
"Basically, there's the goo, right? The symbiote which has, like, a dark energy, like the goo from the thing that creates venom." To someone not totally versant in the Spider-Man mythology, Maguire sounds vaguely demented. He realizes it, laughs and backs up. He's not referring to venom, but Venom, "a very, very popular character from the later Spider-Man comics. He has the same kind of attributes that Spider-Man has, but he's just stronger, faster and more vicious than Spider-Man. And it comes from this goo that comes from outer space, so first the goo comes and gets hold of me." [...]

Be patient, it's going to be worth the wait. [...]
Quint von AICN berichtet über die "Spider-Man 3"-Präsentation auf der San Diego Comic-Con 2006...
[...] Panel included Sam Raimi, Thomas Hayden Church, Kirsten Dunst, Tobey Maguire, Bryce Dallas Howard and Topher Grace. They teased us about not bringing footage, then finally unleashed upon us.
Guys, Venom is fucking great... Let's start with him...
The footage opened with Topher dipping his fingers, crossing himself in a church. He looks completely distraught, eyes red... he looks like life has beaten him down. His voice wavers and he prays. He's alone in the church. He asks God for his help. "It's Brock, sir. Edward B-brock Jr. (stutters) I'm here... humbled and humiliated... to ask you for one thing... I want you to kill Peter Parker." Then a bunch of stuff happened that I'll get to in a second. The trailer ended with Topher and Venom.
There was a montage of quick clips of Tobey Maguire at the top of the bell tower ripping the black suit off him. "I have to stop it." The SPIDER-MAN 3 logo comes up and you think that's it... but then we saw some unfinished effects of the symbiote dripping down, falling towards Topher Grace who is looking up. One drop falls and hits his right hand, immediately wrapping around his hand. The bulk of the symbiote hits him and wraps around him, pulling him to the ground, totally engulfing him. A cut and the camera is low to the ground a good distance away. It Raimi-cams EVIL DEAD style towards the black bulking mass. As it gets near the mass, Venom's head whips up looking straight into camera, which doesn't slow down and ends up rushing into his mouth where it goes to black.
Venom's face. Exactly what you want to see. Big, big toothy mouth, bright white eyes. Looks just like the later McFarlane Venom face.
The design looks great, Topher was great in the church sequence as Brock... Count me totally psyched... [...]
Finally, the question was asked, "Is this the last one?" Tobey answered the question saying that they tie up a lot of threads in this one, but don't completely close the door. As long as there are good stories to tell, he thinks they'll be there to tell them. [...]
Guests of toy maker Hasbro caught a humorous glimpse at an upcoming series of Video Blogs slated to start running in the coming weeks on the official Spider-Man 3 movie website. At a party celebrating the new Hasbro/Marvel relationship, guests were treated to a brief Spider-Man V-Blog hosted by Bruce Campbell. The Blog consisted of Campbell putting forth the argument that his 'cameos' in the first two "Spider-Man" films were much bigger roles than fans give him credit for. After all, in the first film, he named Spider-Man.
"Let's face it, if it weren't for me, this franchise would be called the Human Spider," he said. The video cut to Campbell's scene as the wrestling announcer who shuns Peter Parker's wishes to be called the Human Spider in favor of 'The Amazing Spider-Man!'"
In the second movie, Campbell contests he defeated Spider-Man. The scene is shown where Campbell, as a snippy theater employee, denies a late Peter entrance into Mary Jane's play.
"In the third one, I... you think I'm going to tell you?!" said Campbell. Several quick set shots followed with Campbell clearly playing a restaurant maitre'd.
J.K. Simmons talked to TV Guide about returning as J. Jonah Jameson in Spider-Man 3 and possibly making more sequels. Simmons says he wrapped filming two or three weeks ago:
TVGuide.com: What's your feeling on 3? Judging by the trailers, it looks darker.
Simmons: I think it pulls in a lot of interesting directions. Of course we're a long ways from seeing a final version of it, but my stuff, we had a lot of fun doing. I probably had not as much to do as I did in the second one and maybe a little more than I had in the first one, but from what I saw the new bad-guy stuff is once again going to top its predecessor.
TVGuide.com: In 2, we met Jonah's son, who in Spider-Man lore evolves into a villain. But they're not playing that card yet?
Simmons: Not yet. Hopefully there are plenty of cards to play for [Parts] 4, 5, 6.... I'll do a Spider-Man for every two or three years for the next couple decades if they want. That'd be all right!
TVGuide.com: Was there any talk of Spider-Man 4 on the set?
Simmons: Yeah, it got mentioned. In fact, the last couple of days I shot was at the very end of the schedule - we were doing some night-action scenes in New York - and [director] Sam [Raimi] was talking about it. It's not a done deal because everybody's deals, including Sam Raimi's and all the actors', was for three pictures. But he's certainly open to doing more. [...]

Blackfilm.com sprach mit Michael Clarke Duncan...
Do you think Kingpin can make an appearance in the Spider-Man films?
MCD: Oh man, I would kick their asses. I know I would. I would love to sidekick Tobey Maguire and then punch Ben Affleck right in the face. (Laughs) Maybe one day. I think that if they do that, you are talking about a lot of money for the actors first of all, but no matter what your budget is, it would make so much more if you just have appearance by Daredevil. He doesn't have to be in the whole movie, just an appearnace, cause in the cartoons, that actually happened and then they fought and then became allies and the Kingpin was behind them going against each other. That would be heavy!

iF MAGAZINE: What is the reason for the costume change in SPIDER-MAN 3?
AVI ARAD: We still have the red costume. We have both, which is the art of metaphors.
iF: Why not the black costume from the comic with the big white spider?
ARAD: We reserved the white spider for something else. [...]
iF: There are four villains this time, Venom, Sandman, and Green Goblin and when is the fourth going to be revealed?
ARAD: Right we have four villains. Pretty soon [we'll reveal the fourth villain] I believe. Maybe around Comic Con we'll reveal something and the madness will begin.

Regarding Venom: "I don't know about Venom, I know about Topher Grace!....The black suit is a metaphor for Spidey's mental state. In Spider-Man 2 we wanted him to put the suit back on; here we'll want him to take it off. He cannot be the Peter we want him to be unless he takes the suit off...." [...]

Bei MSN Movies gibt es ein Interview mit Thomas Haden Church...
[....] Church was offered the role of the villainous Sandman in January 2005 but was sworn to secrecy by director Sam Raimi about revealing anything about his part. The two have since become good friends, and Church was brought directly into the creative process.
"Sam and I started having really involved sessions about who the guy was," Church says. "Clearly, it's taken from the fourth issue of 'Spider-Man,' which was when Sandman was introduced and which I now have framed on my wall."
Church is still sworn to secrecy regarding plot details (he might want to consider moonlighting as a CIA agent), but he wants to let fans know they won't be disappointed.
"I'm overwhelmed every time I'm around Sam," Church says. "He's been showing me [stuff] since the beginning of last summer. 'This is what we are going to be doing in this sequence, this is what Spider-Man is going to be doing and this is what Venom is going to be doing.' It is a massive, massive process." [...]

AICN widmet sich dem Thema "Marschmusik in S3"...
Since the villain character of Dr. Octopus figures prominently in the doomed Stacy family storyline in the comic book series - there's been some speculation that "Spider-Man 2" baddie Alfred Molina would return as Doc Ock in some capacity in the third film.
Molina however dismissed such talk, saying "I'm not in number three. The studio has an option on me for [parts] three and four, should they choose to use it, but who knows. I would certainly be up for it; I had a great time. But I don't think so. I think I died" Molina told Now Playing Magazine.
Molina acknowledges thought that no-one ever really dies in comic book movies, producer Avi Arad once telling Molina that "In this universe you don't die, you just disappear".
Bei AICN gibt es neue Gerüchte zu Venom... Und Hollywoodreporter.com hat einen weiteren Darsteller bekanntgegeben...
James Cromwell is set to walk the beat in Columbia Pictures' "Spider-Man 3" as Captain Stacy, the father of Bryce Dallas Howard's character. Sam Raimi is directing the movie, which is scheduled to roll this month. In the "Amazing Spider-Man" comic books, Stacy dies a heroic death as he saves a child during a battle between Spider-Man and another supervillain. Peter Parker love interest Gwen Stacy (Howard) ends up blaming Spider-Man for her father's death. Cromwell joins returning cast members Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and James Franco as well as Topher Grace, Thomas Haden Church and Theresa Russell.
Bei AICN gibt es einen Bildvergleich zwischen Gwen Stacy im Comic und anders... ;-)
We heard the casting announcement recently that Theresa (WHORE) Russell is playing the wife of Flint Marko, the Sandman, played by Thomas Hayden Church. But is there a surprise in store regarding her identity?
According to Rich Johnston, there is.
So... she’s The Black Cat? And that’s in addition to the already-rumored appearances by Hobgoblin and Venom, plus new cast member Bryce Howard as Gwen Stacy.
Does anyone else think this movie sounds really, really crowded now?
Keep in mind this is still a rumor, but let’s see how it pans out. [...]
Just Jared präsentiert erste Bilder von Mary Jane in "Spider-Man 3"...
One-time "Black Widow" star Theresa Russell has become ensnared in Spidey's web. The actress has joined the cast of "Spider-Man 3" for Columbia Pictures. Russell will play Mrs. Marko, the wife of Flint Marko, aka the Sandman (Thomas Haden Church). Plot details from Alvin Sargent's screenplay are scarce, though it is known that the villainous couple has a daughter. Sam Raimi is helming the movie, and he cowrote the story with his brother, Ivan Raimi. Shooting is set to start this month.
Bryce Dallas Howard is in negotiations to play Peter Parker's love interest Gwen Stacy in Columbia Pictures' "Spider-Man 3." Sam Raimi is directing the movie, which is scheduled to roll this month. Gwen is pivotal in Spider-Man lore as Peter's high school crush, his first girlfriend and his first love. She ended up being kidnapped by the Green Goblin and died during a bridgetop battle in "Amazing Spider-Man" issue 121. In "Spider-Man," Columbia put Mary Jane Watson, a later love interest of Peter's who was a model, in the Gwen role, casting Kirsten Dunst as the high school crush. The movie featured the famous battle on the bridge with the Green Goblin, though a Hollywood ending was added, and the character survived.
[...] While it is common knowledge that Spiderman 3 has started filming some early special effects scenes in multiple cities throughout the country, principal photography has still yet to begin.
The entire cast and crew of Spiderman is on a very strict gag order. Most recently Kirsten Dunst got herself into a little bit of trouble when she revealed that two of the villains were indeed Venom and Sandman to online outlet Zap2it.com.
Knowing that our intention of getting a few questions answered might be a bit difficult we still pressed on.
First during an exclusive video interview that we had with both Sophia Myles and James Franco we asked if the cast had already done script reading in which he answered "yes."
He also mentioned that principal filming will begin next week. The big question that most fan boys want to know is if Harry will indeed get to wear his daddy's armor and become the dreaded Hob Goblin
The question could not be direct so I decided more of an approach of asking if we where going to see Harry a bit more in a villainous way.
He decided not answer and instead he simply shrugged his shoulders and smiled.
While our roundtable reporter asked him a few minutes later if we are going to see him in more action scenes in Spiderman 3 he simply answered "yeah."
So all indications are that Spiderman will indeed have his hands full in his next adventure, not only having to battle Sandman and Venom but also with the Hob Goblin.
