Sam Raimi on Spider-Man 4 and The Shadow

Superhero Hype! got a chance to talk to 30 Days of Night producer and “Spider-Man” franchise director Sam Raimi today. He was asked about the status of Spider-Man 4.

“Right now, Sony is meeting with different writers to try and bring a fresh new story and approach to the ‘Spider-Man’ franchise,” Raimi told us, “so I’ve been in meetings with Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin, the producers, and Amy Pascal. Different writers have been coming in and spinning different tales of where ‘Spider-Man’ can go from here.”

Asked about The Shadow, Columbia Pictures’ adaptation of the legendary 1930s pulp hero, Raimi added, “I don’t have any news on ‘The Shadow’ at this time, except that the company that I have with Josh Donen, my producing partner, we’ve got the rights to ‘The Shadow.’ I love the character very much and we’re trying to work on a story that’ll do justice to the character.”
