    NEWS: SONY PICTURES ANNOUNCED THE NEW DIRECTOR FOR SPIDEY

    It came by no surprise since everyone on the net has been talking about it. Now, Sony's decision to reboot and brings back Peter Parker back to his high school days are sealed following announcement that Marc Webb, whom made (500) Days Of Summer, as the man to replace Sam Raimi.

    Sony and Marvel have confirmed the news with a statement.

    This is a dream come true and I couldn't be more aware of the challenge, responsibility, or opportunity. Sam Raimi's virtuoso rendering of Spider-Man is a humbling precedent to follow and build upon. The first three films are beloved for good reason. But I think the Spider-Man mythology transcends not only generations but directors as well. I am signing on not to 'take over' from Sam. That would be impossible. Not to mention arrogant. I'm here because there's an opportunity for ideas, stories, and histories that will add a new dimension, canvas, and creative voice to Spider-Man.
    - Marc Webb

    The web-slinger flick may as well goes to a different direction than Raimi's version. It was reported that Sony has only allocated a slim $80 million budget for the reboot, a particular timid amount for a comic-book movie. Empire Online speculated that the reboot will deal more on teenager issues rather than some piece of actions since the reboot will follow the Ultimate Spider-Man Marvel comics reboot.

    So now the only question remained is, who will be Peter Parker.
