After the success of Sam Raimi's trilogy of Spider-Man films, it seemed like a no-brainer that the series would continue, considering everyone involved seemed willing to do so. The problem was, reportedly, that Sony wanted a 2011 release date and Raimi felt he couldn't deliver a quality product before that date.

Specifically, if he had had a chance to see Marc Webb's new interpretation.
