Spider-Man will return in May 2011

Sony has confirmed what has been rumoured for a while - that Spider-Man 4 will hit cinemas on 6 May 2011, in both regular and Imax flavours.

The studio has been planning to launch the movie there for a while, but the date had been occupied by The First Avenger: Captain America, which has now slipped back to July.

It'll give the wall-crawler the chance to kick off blockbuster season that year, though little is still known about his next outing.

Locked in so far? Sam Raimi behind the camera, Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst in front of it and Gary Ross writing the latest draft of the script...

Looking forward to more Spider-action? Or is the franchise out of super powers?
