Spider-Man has found a new director and his favorite season may be summer.

Marc Webb, the director of "500 Days of Summer" will now be the director for Marvel Films successful franchise, Spider-Man.

Sony Pictures & Marvel Studios made the announcement on Tuesday.   The first movie is set to debut in 2012 and will feature a younger version of the Peter Parker character.

Webb had this to say when asked if he was taking over for Sam Rami's Spider-Man; "No. I am looking for opportunity for ideas, stories and histories that will add a new dimension, canvas and creative voice to 'Spider-Man.' "

As a Spider-Man and comic book fan, I sure hope Webb does a great job.

Will you see a rebooted version of Spider-Man?-Dr.FB

Marvel Films and Sam Rami are parting ways which means Tobey Macguire & Kirsten Dunst will no longer appear in Spider-Man 4 or any other Spider-Man movie.   There was talk that John Malkovich was going to play "The Vulture" villian in the scrapped film, which Rami wanted, while Marvel wanted a story with the "The Black Cat" villian. 

What will happen now is a reboot of the film.  In all honesty, the first 2 movies were great.  The 3rd tried to do too much and screwed up the franchise......

The Fox hit show "Glee" has been renewed for another season.  Only surprise is why in heaven did Fox take so long to announce it's coming back?.....

Mel Gibson felt the need to talk about Tiger Woods and let Tiger know he feels his pain.  Tiger's response.  Please, Mel, you don't and don't speak for me. I am an adulterer who likes waitresses and not someone who gets drunk and turns racist......

David Hasselhoff is leaving "America's Got Talent" and is being replaced by Howie Mandell.  No word yet if Howie will replace David's drunken adventures.......
