The highly anticipated "Spider-Man 4," sequel to the wildly successful "No Way Home," is slated to begin filming this fall, with production set for late September. However, Sony Pictures is still without a director for the project.

Jon Watts, the director behind the first three Spider-Man films, has moved on to other ventures, including collaborations with Hollywood heavyweights George Clooney and Brad Pitt on "Wolfs" and "Wolves," respectively.

Justin Lin, previously rumored to be in the running, has committed to another project, MGM/Amazon's "Stakehorse," leaving the director's chair for "Spider-Man 4" vacant.

Another name that surfaced was Drew Goddard, known for his work on "Cabin in the Woods," but he is now deeply involved in directing the upcoming 'Matrix' film.

In an exciting turn of events, it has been revealed that Sam Raimi is being considered to helm "Spider-Man 4." Raimi, who directed the original Spider-Man trilogy in the early 2000s, including the acclaimed "Spider-Man 2," is reportedly in talks for the role. While no official offer has been made, discussions are underway, contingent on Raimi's schedule. He is currently attached to direct "Send Help," a horror-thriller, but this project may be put on hold for "Spider-Man 4."

Raimi's potential involvement is sure to excite fans, as "Spider-Man 2" is hailed as one of the best comic book movies ever made. Alongside his Spider-Man films, Raimi is known for cult classics like "Evil Dead," "Darkman," "A Simple Plan," and "Drag Me To Hell."

Other contenders reportedly in consideration include John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, known for "Game Night" and "Dungeons & Dragons," and the writers of "Spider-Man: Homecoming." Additionally, Jon Favreau, who kickstarted the Marvel Cinematic Universe with "Iron Man" in 2008, has been mentioned as a possibility.

"Spider-Man 4" will see Tom Holland and Zendaya reprising their roles. While no official release date has been announced, speculation suggests a late 2025 premiere. "Spider-Man: No Way Home" grossed a staggering $800 million worldwide, despite its 2021 release during the pandemic, setting high expectations for the upcoming sequel.
