It’s been roughly 1 month since Sony dropped the ball on Spider-Man 4 and decided to go into reboot mode. Since then they’ve hired Marc Webb to direct, and now they have given the reboot an official release date of July 3rd 2012. It will also be in 3D (although we can assume just about every upcoming big movie will be in 3D from know on).
Production will begin later this year, so we will no doubt be hearing casting news over the upcoming months. Recently Percy Jackson actor Logan Lerman said he was in talks with the producers for a role (presumably Peter Parker), however he has since backtracked and said he is “just interested in it” and nothing official has taken place.
