You know damn well the studio is seeing Transformers 2 make $1.1 billion and Alice in Wonderland $1 billion and the last Pirates movie make $1 and thinking Spiderman should make at least that.
What are you talking about?
They were on the way to making a fourth film with all of the original cast and crew but Raimi dropped out. From wiki:
"Sony Pictures announced in January 2010 that plans for Spider-Man 4 had been cancelled due to Raimi's withdrawal from the project. Raimi reportedly ended his participation due to his doubt that he could meet the planned May 6, 2011 release date while at the same time upholding the film creatively. Raimi purportedly went through four iterations of the script with different screenwriters and still "hated it".
See nothing to do with Money!
