An unnamed Sony studios source has confirmed that production on Spider-Man 4, which was set to start next month, has been pushed back.
Movie executives are refusing to alter the May 2011 release date -- but experts insist that will change.
However, Maguire has assured fans the ongoing issues will be resolved without compromising the film's release date.
He says, "Like anything, it's a process. We're just in the midst of the process. We have a lot of great stuff in terms of story and script. We're just trying to dial it in and get it ready as quickly as possible.
"Of course, these movies are a very big undertaking and take a lot more time than a drama or something more straightforward."
