MTV chatted with Spider-Man 4 director Sam Raimi on Sunday who just announced a release date of May 6, 2011 for the project last week.
Raimi confirmed that he and "the writers and producers are working out what the story will be, but haven't been talking in terms of Part 4 and 5." He also stated that they are only working on the 4th film, and contrary to rumors, not the 5th film.
"All the characters or villains or villains, whatever we decide to do will be from Stan Lee's creations or those that came after him," he said.
He also commented on whether or not Kirsten Dunst will return as Mary Jane Watson. Raimi said, "I can't imagine making a 'Spider-Man' movie without Kirsten. Of course it can be done because Spider Man has existed without the character of Mary-Jane but she's one of my favorite parts and it would be a shame not to have her in the picture. I'm hoping she'll be in it and I'm planning on having a story with her in it."
"I have talked with my partners about having a young director come in and remake Evil Dead," he revealed. "That film was made in 16mm on a shoestring budget and blown up to 35mm. The visual effects are crumby, it was done in mono, not even stereo, let alone 5.1. What you could do with it now would be so much better.
"I think if you had a new director using the full power of 35mm and 5.1 sound, you could really make a pretty socko presentation. It was always meant for the big screen, but never really seen on the big screen"
