Spider-Man 4 Gets an Official Release Date!

Well, the collective holding of breath is over! Variety magazine is reporting that the holy trinity of director Sam Raimi and stars Toby Maguire and Kirsten Dunst are all on board to make Spider-Man 4 a reality, with a release date of May 6, 2011 being confirmed! Even better, the film will be released in both traditional theaters and Imax as well on the same day. Writer Gary Ross will take scriptwriting responsibilities, and expectations are high from fans given the mixed reception Spider-Man 3 received. It's going to be a Marvel superhero heavy summer, with both Thor and The First Avenger: Captain America slated to be released that same year! Interestingly enough, Spider-Man 4's May 6 release bumps the Captain America film to July 22nd, which had been slated for the May 6th spot. Thor will be released quickly on the heels of Spidey, with a release date of May 11, 2011!
