As we reported in March, 'Spider-Man 4' will be released May 6, 2011. Columbia Pictures officially confirmed the date today.

Series stars Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst will return as Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson, respectively, as will director Sam Raimi.

Plot details have remained vague so far. While Sony producer Todd Black told the New York Post in June that the villain would be tied closely to the series' New York City setting, the script has since undergone revisions.
