"Spider-Man" Pushed to May 2002

Citing an "ambitious vision for "Spider-Man," Columbia Pictures has pushed "Spidey's" release date from November 2001 to May 3, 2002. Variety says that the start of production has also been pushed back from December to January 2001. Most of the acting stuff—principal photography and the like—will be out of the way by the summer of 2001, which should keep "Spidey" safe from the SAG strike (a topic I'm already sick of). Columbia's decision shouldn't be a major problem for director Sam Raimi, but Tobey Maguire is probably cursing the move because he'll be forced to dedicate a few more months to the intense weight-lifting program he's used to prepare for the Spidey role. To see what Mr. Pleasantville looks like now, check out this picture. He's action Tobey now.
