Tobeymaguire_spiderman3_290 Lay in extra web-fluid: Spider-Man will be back... again and again.

Despite news of a rewrite, somebody at Sony liked the script for "Spider-Man 4" enough that the studio has contracted James Vanderbilt to write two more chapters in the story, according to Wired.

As for the plot of "Spider-Man 4," we don't have many details. News surfaced in June that the story -- and the movie's villain -- would be closely tied to the webslinger's New York City setting.

Stars Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst and director Sam Raimi have all signed on for "Spider-Man 4" for a scheduled release date of May 6, 2011.
