Its a mere 8 days later(no need for new thread) and now its official, for Tobey anyway. Tobey Maguire will be Peter Parker/Spiderman in installments 4&5 to shoot back-to-back. His paycheck a cool $50m plus possible back end profits. So Kirsten Dunst will be decided soon("in a few days"), maybe by weeks end even. Her personal life is so screwed up that while I don't see her as that great an actress, let alone the best MJ there is a part of me that would like to see her back if only for consistency. What the article doesn't elude to however is Sam Raimi. I'd like to know that as well. They tease us with word that Kirsten's deal is being examined but not the same with Sam? Looking out long term then it seems Marvel will be very well represented during calendar year 2010/2011. Iron Man 2 will hit for sure in 2010. Thor and Captain America are suppossed to be ready as well although news is sketchy on start dates, Ant-Man as well. Spiderman 4 will most likely be ready for 2010 with Spiderman 5 in 2011 when an Avengers movie is on the calendar. Not to mention the "what if" of Fox rebooting Daredevil and Ghost Rider 2 being considered. Maybe a Wolverine Origins 2 in 2011 as well. I toss these all out to say that Marvel should be very busy with properties on the big screen.
