Does Whatever A Studio Can...
Sony Officially Announces Spider-Man 3

Sony keeps its eye on the franchise.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Such words of wisdom must be echoing through the halls of Sony Pictures, as they have seen the eager excitement for Spider-Man 2, and decided not to play coy with fans.

This week at ShoWest, the annual bash in Las Vegas for movie theater owners and exhibitors, the studio formerly known as Columbia-Tristar announced that they've set a date for Spider-Man 3. How that will square with a lawsuit Marvel filed last year remains to be seen, but that may just be a minor bump in a road both Sony and Marvel want to continue driving down.

On May 4, 2007, Tobey Maguire will swing back into theaters, joined, of course, by Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane Watson. But wait! That's NOT ALL!

Sony is also moving the release date of Spider-Man 2 up by two days. It's no longer opening on July 2, 2004. Instead, it will land in your popcorn on Wednesday, June 30.

What should really get the fanboys lathered up is the studio's announcement that Sam Raimi will again return to direct the third film. Bless the man for his commitment and bless the studio for its recognition that yeah, the guy seems to know what he's doing, so let's let him keep on doing it.

Let the speculation on villains begin, but note that in Spider-Man 2, we don't just have the amazing Alfred Molina as Dr. Otto Octavius. Dylan Baker has a presumably small but crucial role as Dr. Curt Conners.

I'm opening the betting pool with The Lizard.
