Sony Pictures Confirm Plans For 'SpiderMan 3'

Sony Pictures have confirmed their plans to make SpiderMan 3, even though SpiderMan 2 is not out until July.

Marvel Studio's Avi Arad told Variety that "Spider-Man 3 is in development" and that a "contemplated release date will be probably 2007."

Arad said the pic could possibly bow in 2006, but that "It is a big movie, and we would rather play it safe and talk about the 2007 at this point."

Although a script for the film has not yet been written, according to reports director Sam Raimi has committed to making the movie, and Tobey Maguire (aka Peter Parker) is expected to reprise his role again in SpiderMan 3.
