    The news of the bittersweet most people are going through right now was that Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire has left the Spider-Man 4 project. Then Sony decided to go back to the first story and hit the reboot button. That news is still hot as was reported in this blog too. Read again if you are clueless of what has happened.

    I woke up early in the morning and I got this news. According to Collider.com and some sources, Sony is aiming to offer the director seat to (500) Days of Summer's Marc Webb to take over from Sam Raimi on the Spider-Man reboot.

    Sources say that Webb met with Spider-Man’s producers in an effort to possibly get production underway for a Summer 2012 release date. The overly lengthy timeframe is most likely due in part to the fact Sony is looking to shoot Spider-Man in 3D.

    With the shotgun moves, it seems that Sony is indeed very interested to take the webslinger very much to his high school days and therefore aiming for a younger demographic take, in concise with the script by Jamie Vanderbilt. If this is confirmed, Marc Webb may as well beat the likes of James Cameron or David Fincher to direct the reboot.

    The move seems unconfirmed but they all lead to one common thing, younger look. some may pin-point and goes as far to label Spidey reboot is nothing more than the next "Twilight" or "Transformers" where both are headlined by younger casts. What more you can say when rumours have fired up that Robert Pattinson and Zac Efron are among the top contender to step into Peter Parker's shoe. Certainly Tobey Maguire has placed a standard bar for them to follow. I have to say Maguire's selection a decade ago was the best choice we have ever seen.

    We hope the best for Sony Pictures and for Spidey.
