    Spidey 4 Spins 2011 Release Date

    Webheads, let the countdown begin!

    After taking a year to wrangle up the key players, Columbia Pictures has finally set May 5, 2011, as the worldwide release date for Spider-Man 4.

    The first three films based on Marvel's acrobatic webcrawler combined grossed a massive $2.5 billion at the worldwide box office, so a fourth installment was a no-brainer for the studio. It was only a matter of locking down stars Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst and director Sam Raimi.

    The summer of 2011 is shaping up to be a Marvel-ous season, with Thor due on June 17 and The First Avenger: Captain America on July 22.

    And for all the Raimi fanboys out there, Evil Dead actor Bruce Campbell, who's had a cameo in the first three Spidey movies, recently said he's signed on for a major part, possibly even a villainous one, in Spider-Man 4.

    Filming reportedly gets under way early next year.
