Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 4 Is A Box Office Gamble Too Good Not To Take


Tobey Maguire is 48. Sam Raimi is 64. They’re not getting any younger and with the superhero movie bubble on the verge of popping, Sony needs to act now if they have any interest in making this happen. And given that the floor for a live-action “Spider-Man” movie at the box office is around $700 million, they should have more than a little interest in doing it.

The lowest-grossing live-action movie in this franchise is “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” a movie that made $709 million worldwide against a $200 million budget. Back in 2014, that was just disappointing enough to open the door for Sony to make a deal with Disney and Marvel Studios while canceling plans for two more Garfield-led films. In the pandemic era, just about any studio in town would take those returns. It’s amazing how much can change in 10 years. This to say, if there’s one superhero franchise out there that’s still worth betting on, it’s this one.

In some ways, “No Way Home” was a bit of a redemption arc for both Maguire and Garfield, who didn’t get to leave the franchise on their own terms. But it would seem fitting to let Raimi and Maguire truly give their iteration of this series a proper send-off. If the superhero landscape is going to dry up in the coming years, it would be sort of poetic to have come all the way back around to this dynamic duo. And, not for nothing, if all goes well, it could be a $1 billion hit, if history tells us anything.

Your move, Sony.
