This comes on the heels of Raimi's vocal outrage about the poor quality of the Spidey 4 script less than one week ago. Raimi and Sony executives hadn't been seeing eye to eye for a while. Executives wanted Anne Hathaway in the picture as Black Cat and weren't happy about Raimi's insistence that John Malkovich play the villain (I'm guessing it was The Vulture). Tobey Maquire and Kirsten Dunst are out as well. More details on this and the new script after the jump.

Entertainment executives need to get their heads out of their asses. I'm also happy to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt in a "new" movie. Check these stories out, and more, after the jump.
