Sam Raimi Speaks On SPIDER MAN 4

March 18, 2009

Writer Sam Raimi has hit the street and begun to spread the word, Spider Man 4 is a go. In recent interviews Raimi stated:

He and the production team are “in the earliest stages of working with the writer, trying to work out a story.” He added that they are just working an the fourth installment and not also a fifth film. Previous reports had claimed that Sony Pictures would be making the fourth and fifth movies at the same time, but that doesn’t appear to be the case.

Rumored to play Spider Man’s foe in the fourth installment of the series is Lizard, formally Dr. Curtis Conners:

A  gifted surgeon who enlisted in the army and was sent off to war. He performed emergency battlefield surgery on wounded GIs, but his right arm was injured in a blast and had to be amputated. After his return to civilian life as a research technologist, he became obsessed with uncovering the secrets of reptilian limb regeneration and studied reptilian biology extensively. From his home in the Florida Everglades, he finally developed an experimental serum taken from reptilian DNA. He successfully regrew the missing limb of a rabbit and then, despite the warnings of his wife Martha, chose to test it on himself. Connors ingested the formula and his missing arm did indeed grow back. The formula had a side effect; Connors was subsequently transformed into a reptilian humanoid monster. Spider-Man discovered this situation during a trip to Florida to investigate newspaper reports of the Lizard. Spidey was then able to use Connors’ notes to create an antidote to restore him to his human form and mentality.
