Will Danny Elfman Return For 'Spider-Man 4'?

Composer Danny Elfman has provided the distinctive musical theme for Tim Burton's "Batman" films as well as a host of other television and movie projects, so when we caught up with him at the red carpet preview of Burton's new exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, we had to ask: will he be returning to the Spidey movie team when "Spider-Man 4" comes around?

"Who knows?" smiled Elfman, who re-teamed with director Sam Raimi to compose 2007's "Spider-Man 3" theme.

"Only the great gods of the movie world could answer that question," he laughed. "Imagine a chess game, [with] the Greek gods moving us around — that's how it is in the movie world. Somebody's moving me about from one square to another, but I have no idea what square I'm headed to next."

The Tim Burton Exhibit at MoMA runs November 22 - April 26 — check the museum's official website for details.
