Storyboard Images Surface For Sam Raimi’s Scrapped Spider-Man 4
Tom Holland may have stole the show in Captain America: Civil War, but who could forget Tobey Maguire's iconic take on Spider-Man that helped to kickstart an entire genre of superhero films in the 21st century? The first two Spidey films were monumental hits, but sadly, the third failed on a massive level, killing the possibility for any further Spidey sequels.  

Now, however, some storyboard images have surfaced from illustrator and writer Jeffrey Henderson, who had this to say about the scrapped fourth installment that would have followed Raimi's trilogy:

Opening quote
It would've been one absolutely kick ass movie. Seriously. We were working on some crazy- cool stuff, because everyone, from top to bottom, felt that Spidey 3 was a bit of a 'missed opportunity', and we all really wanted to help Sam take SM4 to another level so he could end the series on a high note.
Closing quote






As can be seen from the above images, the villains planned for the fourth movie were Vulture and Mysterio. Honestly, that seems like it could have been the perfect choices to get the series back on track following the terrible take on Venom (a character the studio pushed to have included) and the mishandling of Sandman in the third film.

It's currently rumored that Vulture will be the villain in the next Spider-Man movie as well, Spider-Man: Homecoming. It's also rumored that previous Batman, Michael Keaton, will play in the role, which would certainly be a good casting decision and would likely make for a memorable villain (something the MCU has had trouble with in the past) if he was written correctly.

Spider-Man: Homecoming will be the first solo Spider-Man movie to take place in the MCU following the Sony-Marvel deal that took place last year. Tom Holland has proven to be a great fit for the role, but it's yet to be seen if the MCU can do Marvel's most iconic comic character justice. Here's to hoping it does when Homecoming premieres next year on July 7, 2017.
