I'll tell you what I would have liked - a Scorpion suit with a tail. They could have shown that in the box of weapons they were going to sell him. how about that huh?

I think that would have been more of a wank wank nod than what you were complaining about. Mac Gargan was just sequel fodder. Giving him a pre-existing affinity for scorpions that might shape his design preference for a weaponized suit was not problematic for me.

The poor reviews and bad word of mouth would have damaged a fourth movie (arguably it did if you consider ASM the next film in the franchise), and Tobey Maguire wasn't going to become cheaper.

I was under the impression that the main reason we didn't get a Raimi-directed SPIDER-MAN 4 is because he couldn't lock down a story fast enough for Sony's tastes, since they needed to quickly produce another movie in order to keep the rights.

Yes, but Raimi even said at the time he parted with Sony that they were wanting a reboot. The reboot script was ready to go when he dropped Spider-Man 4.
