SPIDER-MAN 3 teaser coming at us faster than a speeding bullet??

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with some interesting rumors for ya'. I've gotten contacted by many spies within the theatrical exhibition world claiming they've received lists of trailers to play in front of SUPERMAN RETURNS here in a couple weeks. On that list is SPIDER-MAN 3, which will be "in the can, but not attached." No run time was mentioned in this list.
This has been confirmed by different sources. I'm now thinking that perhaps all that LA shooting from last November might have been part of a teaser campaign, possibly like the ill-fated TWIN TOWERS teaser for the first SPIDER-MAN film, itself a brilliant teaser pulled from view because of the events of 9/11 some 2 weeks or so after the trailer was launched. For those who didn't see it, the trailer had a bank robbery in progress... shot totally like a heist movie. The robbers get to the roof, get in a chopper and fly away, a clean escape. Suddenly the chopper lurches and is pulled backwards, rotors spinning, engine whirring, emergency beeping from the controls. They finally come to a jarring stop and the camera pulls back revealing the chopper caught in a spider's web strung up between the two towers of the World Trade Center. Then we got our look at SPIDER-MAN, the WTC reflected in his eye-piece, as he launches off the side of a building and swings at the camera. All shot exclusively for the trailer.
I'm hoping that's what they did here, because if it isn't then this trailer in all likelihood will be a logo teaser, with maybe some hint of Sandman and/or Venom... or possibly even just the black suit.
Anyway, keep your eyes open when you go to see the big blue boys scout at the end of the month. You might have a surprise visit from your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man!!!
