Sam Raimi told Sony, Fuck You.....well not those actual words;
According to website Deadline.com, Raimi told Sony before walking from Spider-Man 4: "I can't make your date. I can't go forward creatively." It seemed that Sony wanted Spider-Man 4 to be shot in 3D, something that no one on the crew was apparently knowledgeable about and something that would have added six months to production.
Sony on the other hand have decided to "reboot" the Spider-Man franchise without Sam or Toby Maguire.
In the wake of Spider-Man 4 falling apart, Sony has since decided to focus on a reboot of the Spider-Man franchise without star Tobey Maguire. The reboot was apparently planned for when Spider-Man 4 was finished and is believed to be a "gritty, contemporary" take on the Spider-Man story for release in 2012. (Gritty Spider-Man?)
Sam Raimi on the other hand now is freed up to work on the World of Warcraft movie if he chooses to.
What does this all mean for Raimi's other project, Warcraft? It means that Raimi's schedule has freed up considerably. The original plan was to begin work on the Warcraft film, which is based on Blizzard's popular online gaming franchise, as soon as Spider-Man 4 wrapped.Raimi has two projects lined up: historical novel The Given Day, from Mystic River author Dennis Lehane, and the film adaptation of Blizzard's Warcraft. Which one he moves forward on first is up to Raimi, but, like Spider-Man, Warcraft is a huge property with a massive following. If the filmmaker is feeling like he is itching to tackle a big project, then he'll most likely move forward on the Warcraft film. But if he is feeling stymied by the prospect of doing a huge effect-heavy film, then he'll probably do The Given Day.

Thank God. Spiderman 3 was one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

Since the reboot will supposedly have Peter Parker in high school, The worst case scenario would be if they did it like the Twilight films.

I think a reboot is a better idea than dragging out the Spider Man we have now for another 3 movies or so. I can live without emo Toby McGuire spidey.

Guess Sony is desperate to pay up PS3 costs the fast way.God, I hope this "dark and gritty" trend for superhero films don't become a reality.

I am actually excited for this, I hope it's like the Ultimate series. Most likely not, but I can still hope.

If it makes them(somehow) suddenly become good movies then I'm all for it.
