Is Tobey Spider-man No More?

UPDATE: Sony Pictures tells Superherohype that there is no truth to the rumor that the studio is looking to replace Tobey Maguire in the role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in future "Spider-Man" movies.

Are Sony looking for a new Spider-man? According to Latino Review it seems so. Last week rumours flooded the net that Sony is looking to shoot Spider-man 4 and Spider-man 5 back to back using a script by James Vanderbilt with a release date for 2010 and 2011.

Latino Review have a good track record with some of their scoops in the past being right, so it will be interesting to see what happens. If it is true is this also an indication Sam Raimi is no longer involved as director.

Latino Review also mention that:

Laura Ziskin and Grant Curtis are tossing names around. NO OFFERS HAVE BEEN MADE YET. That being said, the name at the top of their list to replace Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker/Spiderman is……PATRICK FUGIT.

Yep the guy from Almost Famous!

Hopefully the powers that be at Sony will release something official soon regarding Spidey and his future.
