After hearing that McG was gone from the new production, the team at Superman-V.com went to work. Their sources allege that McG was "Ratnered" "after he failed to go to a location scout in Australia. WB execs became angry with his failure to make crucial decisions and apparent non-committal attitude in recent weeks. Also, a source at ICM told us that a meeting between Sandy Collora and the WB brass is currently being organized to discuss his possible involvement." Collora created the fan-film phenom "Batman: Dead End."

Director Sam Raimi has an interview in the Houston Chronicle where he discussed how many "Spider-Man" movies he'd direct: "As long as I'm interested in the character and have a real curiosity toward what happens to him, I know it's the right picture. And the moment I don't feel that, when I'm less interested in him, I don't want to touch it with a 10-foot flag pole, because I'd be the wrong guy. It would be a terrible failure. People wouldn't like it. I've got to be very, very interested to make a great picture, and I want to try to make a great picture out of Spider-Man. So I could only answer that question after the third one. Or what might happen is, I make the third one, and I might say, 'You know what, I'm very interested in making the fourth one,' and the audience says, 'We really wish you wouldn't.' That's the other way in which I might not be making the movie."
