- Director Sam Raimi is a fan of Morbius the Living Vampire, citing his "combination of superhero + supernatural," (Raimi had started out with horror films.) though he's recently stated, in an interview, that Morbius won't be featured. But, he will be mentioned in the coming movies. He stated there will be a New York central villain, though.
- Screenwriter James Vanderbilt was signed on after impressing the studio with his focus on characterization.
- Producer Grant Curtis, director Sam Raimi and actor Dylan Baker expressed interest in making the film's main antagonist the Lizard (Curtis is a fan of the character). The Lizard's alter-ego, Dr Curt Connors (played by Baker), had featured extensively in the previous films; in fact in Spider-Man 3 (2007) he was seen carrying out research on animals, which led to his fateful mutation.

- Disagreements on the movie took place in December when Sony was pushing Vulture as the new editor of the Daily Bugle. Along with re-creating Felicia Hardy into "Vultress", unlike the comic book where she is Black Cat, they also wanted her to be the daughter of the Vulture.
- Durring the writing of the Spider-Man 4 script, James Vanderblit was put to write a reboot script, just in case Sam Raimi ever dropped out.
