Spider-Man 3

Columbia Pictures

Looks like everyone's favorite web-slinging superhero is slowly weaving his way back to the box office. Very slowly.

Laura Ziskin, producer of the blockbuster movie franchise starring Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst, told theater owners from California and Nevada on Thursday that Spider-Man 4 won't hit theaters until at least 2011.

She said there is no script yet and neither Maguire nor director Sam Raimi have signed on.

Spider-Man 3 opened in 2007 to mixed reviews, although that didn't stop the film from grossing a record $59 million its first day out of the gate.

The first three Spidey flicks combined have grossed a whopping $2.5 billion worldwide.
