Spider-Man 3 allows players to experience the actions of heroic red suit Spider-Man, and for the first time ever, his darker, more mysterious black suit persona. Set in a 3D side scrolling world and delivering complete touch screen handling, players must draw upon Spider-Man’s vast array of moves, attacks and upgrades as they choose their path and embark on a wide variety of city-based missions and multiple movie-based and original story arcs.

According to Sony Pictures Entertainment's recent "Spider-Man 3" announcement, Tobey McGuire and Kirsten Dunst will reprise their roles as Spider-Man and Mary Jane with Sam Raimi set to direct.

Under a separate agreement with Marvel Enterprises, Inc., Activision also holds the exclusive rights to the classic Spider-Man comic book character. The company intends to release a game based on the 40+ year history of the Spider-Man comic book stories during 2005. Under Activision, the Spider-Man franchise has already generated approximately $245 million in revenues in the United States, according to NPD.

"Activision is very excited to further expand its licensing agreement with Spider-Man Merchandising, L.P. on the third installment in the blockbuster series," said Ron Doornink, CEO of Activision Publishing, Inc. "We expect that our upcoming Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3 video games will continue building on the success we have already experienced with the franchise. Spider-Man has proven to be one of the most popular video game properties in the world. We expect that our future titles based on the brand will continue to top consumers' most wanted lists every year."

Tim Rothwell, President of Marvel Worldwide Consumer Media Group, added, "Activision has been an amazing partner and great addition to the Spider-Man franchise. They truly understand the basic essence that makes Spider-Man one of the most popular characters in the world and continue to translate this into engaging and entertaining interactive content. The bar has been raised with each introduction of the character and we're excited to see what they develop for the third installment."
