I heard it will only be faithful in name only.

Oh well. Here's hoping that Powers will be well compensated at least.

And who knows? Maybe the movie will boost the book's sales some.

Haha. I said "in my name only". I swear that was accidental.

Disney has bought the movie rights to On Stranger Tides so Powers has definately been paid. I think they'll take many things from the novel. Hopefully they'll have Blackbeard in POTC4 like the novel.

Some of us are still waiting for Raimi's Discworld movie, y'know.

I'm indifferent to Spider-Man 4. Maybe with a different cast, who actually gave a damn, I'd be more interested.

Well, that too (love Discworld very dearly), but is that going anywhere? Either one would be something I'd very much want to see, really.

Anyway, either of those are probably more interesting projects I'd argue than returning to the webslinger well a fourth time - but hey, Peter Parker has been a tidy investment before and they'll probably milk this sucker dry.

Sam Raimi knows that Spider-Man 3 wasn't received well. He has pretty much admitted that in interviews. I think he wants to leave with a bang, which is why he returned to do Spider-Man 4 in the first place. To think it has anything to do with "returning to the well" or money is absurd.

By 'they' I meant Sony, sorry for not making that clearer.

I don't care about any of these movies...unless Spider-Man 4 has Mysterio...then forget it.

Probably not that much- they bought the rights because of sufficient similarities between the script they'd come up with and the book, so now they'll be just picking such bits and pieces as they fancy - which they don't even have to do, but apparently the scripters are enjoying it and finding bits they want to use...

Wasn't Raimi talking about doing THE SHADOW, too? Now that I would love to see . . .

Yeah, he optioned the film rights to a number of pulp heroes, including the Shadow, Doc Savage, and the Avenger. He was considering whether to make individual films for each character or to have them all appear in one film together. I haven't heard anything about his involvement in developing these films for a while, though. Doc Savage is currently being developed at Sony with Neil Moritz producing and Shane Black working on the script. I don't know if Raimi's still involved or not.

While I heartily enjoyed the first two Raimi/Maguire Spider-Man films, at this stage I'd like to see the film series turned over to a new director and new lead, with Raimi turning his attention to films like Warcraft and The Shadow instead.

Thor scares me. I don't want it to fuck up the tone Iron Man has laid out. I just can't see Thor and the tone Iron Man has working together for The Avengers. I fear it has "Batman & Robin" written all over it.
