Cert: TBC
UK release date: May 2007
Director: Sam Raimi
Stars: Tobey Maguire (Peter Parker/Spider-Man), Kirsten Dunst (Mary-Jane Watson), James Franco (Harry Osbourne), Thomas Haden Church (Flint Marko/Sandman), Topher Grace.

The first two Spider-Man films were such massive successes that it's no surprise film bosses have decided to make even more of them.

Peter Parker got his powers when a special spider bit him during a school visit and quickly developed super-strength and reflexes, as well as the ability to fire webbing from his wrists.

Having already fought the Green Goblin and Dr Octopus in the first two films, some new costumed villains are lined up for Spidey this time.

One of them is the Sandman, who is made of sand and can change his body into any shape or weapon he wants to.

There are also reports that another villain (or more!) could be appearing on screen to make things more difficult for Spidey!
