Default Sony Negotiating With Marvel Studios To Add SPIDER-MAN To The MCU




Let's face it, Sony plans for The Amazing Spider-Man are not going well. Could that be why "plans" are being discussed to connect that character to the extremely successful Marvel Cinematic Universe? There are rumbling that's the case, so hit the jump for details...




HitFix have a very interesting piece up responding to those recent reports that Marvel are planning on introducing a new team of Earth's Mightiest Heroes in The Avengers 3, thereby taking the spotlight off the likes of Iron Man and Thor to instead focus perhaps on Captain Marvel and other second-tier characters. It's well worth a read and I strongly recommend heading on over to the site to check it out. However, included in the story is something very interesting about Spider-Man.

After mentioning the tension between Marvel and Fox (which has led to comic books featuring the characters being cancelled and a stop on merhcandise featuring them), the site reveals that the opposite may be the case when it comes to Sony. Remember, Marvel hold the merchandising rights to Spider-an, so they have no reason to want his movies to fail. Of course, after the tepid critical and commercial response to The Amazing Spider-Man 2, that's exactly what is happening.
"While I can't get the confirmations I need to verify the story, I'm hearing that there are some very cool "Spider-Man" plans being discussed that would help Sony refocus their enormously important franchise while also opening up some connections in the onscreen Marvel movie universe that would blow fandom's minds. Will it work out? I don't know. I would love to be able to state for sure that it's happening. What seems clear from what I've heard is that Marvel wants to be able to play with all of their characters, and if they can make that work creatively and on a corporate level, they will, and that means the world gets bigger again."
Now this is very interesting. What it means and what it could lead to is unclear, but the implication is obviously that we might see Spider-Man lining up alongside The Avengers sooner rather than later. With a Sinister Six movie on the way that no one really seems to care about and The Amazing Spider-Man 3's release date changed from 2016 to "Unknown", turning to Marvel Studios for help is a smart move on Sony's part. What do you guys think? Share your thoughts below!

X-men won't revert for awhile especially now they want a live action show, Deadpool, and the x-factor movie that was shelved temporarily for DOFP

What? The last 2 X-Men movies have been fantastic.

Was really disappointed with Spider-Man 2 though. It had a lot of flash and felt "big" but also empty at the same time. Idk, the new movies just aren't working for me. Wish Spider-man 3 wouldn't have sucked and they continued with the Tobey Mcguire version.

Sony May Reboot And Recast SPIDER-MAN With SINISTER SIX; VENOM Movie Reportedly Scrapped

Following yesterday's reports of Sony negotiating with Marvel to add Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it has now been revealed that the Sinister Six will possibly serve as a reboot with a new actor playing Spidey, while Venom may have once again been scrapped...

4


Though The Amazing Spider-Man 3 no longer has a release date, there's still clearly a lot going on behind-the-scenes at Sony Pictures when it comes to this character. The ever reliable Badass Digest confirm that they too have heard about plans to possibly incorporate Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (if you missed that story yesterday, more details can be found by clicking here), but that is actually one of THREE different ideas curently being passed around.

The site claims to have been told that, "Sony is going to soft reboot Spider-Man with The Sinister Six, having a new actor playing a Spidey who works with the villains The Dirty Dozen style to take down a larger threat." This actually sounds similar to the Ultimate Six story arc from a few years back and would make sense, though recasting Andrew Garfield when he still has another picture left on his contract doesn't. The other plan? "To put Spider-Man on the shelf for four or five years and see if they can develop any of the side characters into their own franchises." This one seems more likely in some ways, especially as Sinister Six has taken the release date previously held by The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and a female-led spin-off is also in the works.

It's a pretty sad state of affairs when a character like Spidey needs to be benched after two mediocre movies though. The site adds that they're not sure whether all or any of these will come to pass, but changes are definitely in store. Oh, and one more thing for you to mull over; Venom is said to be "functionally dead again," giving everyone who said "It'll never get made!" something to boast about. How do you guys feel about this news? Sound off with your thoughts below.

Kevin Feige Responds To Rumors That 'Spider-Man' Is Set To Join THE AVENGERS


While Marvel's reveal of their full slate of upcoming movies was obviously huge, many fans expected Kevin Feige to confirm recent rumours that Spider-Man will appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. What did he say when asked about whether it's going to happen?




What a day! With everything from Black Panther casting news to the reveal of a full slate of Marvel releases, there's enough to keep us all going for a very long time. However, conspicuous by his absence was Spider-Man. With Civil War officially kicking off in Captain America 3, and Thanos taking centre stage in a two-part Avengers epic, where does this leave the Sony owned character who has been rumoured to be making the leap to Marvel Studios? Kevin Feige was asked exactly that today, and responded with the following: "Anything that wasn’t specifically and obviously revealed today is either not true at all, or still rumor until it’s worked out." While it would be easy to read into how he ends that sentence (Marvel and Sony must be coming to a deal!), let's look at this logically for a second. Captain America 3 isn't setting up Civil War for a future Avengers movie; it's an adaptation of that storyline which will involve Black Panther and have to address the hunt for Bucky. Will Marvel really shoehorn Spidey into all of that? Probably not, and though he might make an appearance in the two-part Avengers movie, do Marvel need him? No! What do you think?

Sony Leak Reveals Studio Considering Lord/Miller Spider-Man Comedy, Marvel Crossover




It’s no secret that Sony has been struggling with its Spider-Man franchise. Anyone can see the Amazing Spider-Man movies haven’t gained much traction with fans, and plans for Venom, Sinister Six, and a female-led movie have looked more like desperate attempts at reinvention than natural progressions of a healthy franchise.
But there’s even more where that came from, apparently. In its attempts to rejuvenate the brand, Sony is also developing an animated Spider-Man comedy from Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Moreover, at various points, it’s also considered bringing back Sam Raimi or teaming up with Marvel Studios. Hit the jump for more on the Spider-Man animated comedy, the scrapped Marvel crossover, and more.
The new information comes to us via the massive email hack Sony suffered in late November. As reported by the Wall Street Journal, messages leaked by hackers revealed conversations between execs at Sony and other studios about the future of Spidey.
As it turns out, those rumors about Sony possibly returning or lending Spider-Man to Marvel weren’t that far off. In one email, Sony’s motion picture chief Amy Pascal says Marvel Studios wanted to include Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War. In another, Sony Pictures president Doug Belgrad discusses the potential for a new Spider-Man trilogy produced by Marvel, with creative control remaining with Sony.
Although Spider-Man is one of Marvel Comics’ most iconic heroes, Marvel licensed Spider-Man rights to Sony years ago. Fans have been pushing for Sony to return those rights to Marvel in recent months — especially in light of Marvel’s plans to adapt the Civil War storyline from the comics, which features Spider-Man in a prominent role.
However, the Wall Street Journal also reports the Sony / Marvel talks eventually fell apart, so don’t count on a Spidey / Avengers crossover in the near future. Instead, their sources say Sony is plowing ahead with other attempts to rejuvenate the franchise. Among other things, the studio has tried to bring back Raimi (who directed the original Spider-Man movies) to return as a director or a producer.
But the most interesting tidbit is that Sony is considering an animated Spider-Man comedy produced by Lord and Miller. The duo have revealed a knack for turning bad-on-paper ideas into box office gold, and they already have a relationship with Sony thanks to their work on Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street, and 22 Jump Street. If nothing else, such a project would bring a lot of buzz to Sony’s Spider-Man franchise.
That project and others, including the previously announced Sinister Six, Venom, and unnamed female character spinoffs, will be discussed at a summit for executives in January.

Marvel Studios/Sony SPIDER-MAN Deal Could Still Happen; New Details Revealed


According to a new report, that Marvel Studios/Sony deal might still be in the works, so don't count Spider-Man out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe just yet! Hit the jump for details on how it might come together, Sony's stance on the crossover, that rumoured female led spin-off, and more...




Latino-Review have weighed in on those leaked details about Spider-Man which found their way online late last night as a result of the "Sony Hack" (something which is proving to be tremendous fun for us movie bloggers). Before we get to the good stuff, let's talk about the spinoffs. Apparently, the big plans that Marvel and DC have led to a "crisis of conifidence" over plans for Spider-Man, perhaps explaining why we've heard nothing about Sinister Six and Venom for quite some time. That female-led spinoff would have apparently focused on some previously unseen characters - because apparently Sony don't realise how much we'd all like to see Black Cat, Spider-Girl, etc. on the big screen - and the Aunt May movie is still (sadly) a very real possibility.

Now, the Marvel Studios deal. According to Sony sources, Sony Pictures didn't actually reject a trilogy of movies that Marvel would produce but not have creative control over (somthing which didn't mae much sense when Sony are the ones who have run the character into the ground). Instead, it was a co-production deal which would have seen Marvel and Sony splitting costs 60/40, with Kevin Feige and company in control of the character and setting him up for appearances in the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, like that rumoured Captain America: Civil War role.

Here's where it gets really interesting though. Sony bosses in Japan are obviously furious about how this hacking scandal has played out, and aren't happy about the way Spider-Man has been handled regardless. They feel that they need to start producing more profitable "quality" films, and as a result, "Sony Japan thinks the Marvel deal for Spider-Man is still on the table and they want to renegotiate as a return to quality, the 60/40 split is can be negotiated and Sony Entertainment’s October hard-line stance of wanting creative control is now mostly moot in the eyes of the higher-ups." This obviously means that we may still see Spider-Man join the MCU! Does anyone else have a horrible feeling that Sony will end up giving a bunch of terrible sounding spinoffs the green light instead though? Share your thoughts on all this in the usual place...

Marvel Wants A Fresh Start With 'Spider-Man' Without Andrew Garfield

Share1.6K Tweet274 21 Email3
Dec.12.14 – by Kellvin Chavez





We previously reported on the potential deal between Marvel and Sony to share the rights to Spider-Man at a 60/40 split, and that deal seems to be the one that will potentially be jump-started if Sony Pictures Entertainment continues to stumble in their handling of the Spider-Man franchise.
Sony is understandably preoccupied with the consequences of a massive hack that includes leaked films, downed intranet services and the leak of documents and e-mails, but should this deal move forward, we've learned some more details about what Spider-Man's potential return to Marvel would entail.
The 60/40 split still looks to be the divide with Sony handling distribution. However, Marvel's not inclined to give Sony creative control over the character, nor planning on honoring the contracts with Sony's Spider-Stars. More poking into the origins of the Aunt May solo film and Female Spider movie rumors revealed that these were actual Sony Picture Entertainment plans that Marvel knew about and severely disliked. Now that Marvel can have the rights to the character back, they plan to wipe the slate with the Amazing Spider-Man universe.
IF the Marvel/Sony deal were to go forward, Andrew Garfield would no longer be Peter Parker and any baggage from existing films, Raimi or Webb, would be non-canonical, Marvel doesn't want any part of those films. The idea is that the Spider-Man romance movie has been played out over five installments, so any new Spider-Man films would focus on the difficulties of being a teenager and a superhero with a romance side-story, not the film's focus. Marvel also thinks that the origin story is well-trodden territory, so any Spider-Man movies under this deal would begin with Peter Parker already leading a dual life. Spider-Man making his debut in Captain America: Civil War is still a distinct possibility and would serve as the character's introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But as of now Spider-Man will NOT be in Civil War. I was told that they have a script nailed down.







Marvel's desire to remove Andrew Garfield from the role was a major point of contention with Sony's Amy Pascal, traditionally a stalwart defender of the talent in her films. However, current events leave her positioned slightly weakened.

SPIDER-MAN: Details On Captain America's SINISTER SIX Role; Andrew Garfield FIRED?

Additional "Sony Hack" emails have surfaced, and they reveal details about that possible Marvel/Sony deal, the reason why Andrew Garfield might not return as Spider-Man, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 being scrapped, Captain America's Sinister Six role, and much more...



The "Sony Hack" debacle is the gift which keeps on giving, and the latest chain of emails shed some light on some of the Spider-Man details we've been hearing over the past few days! Based on emails seen by Mashable, Andrew Garfield's comments about studio interference being responsible for the tepid response to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have upset the wrong people, especially as he failed to appear at a Sony corporate dinner in July which would have seen him meet Sony CEO Kaz Hirai and a number of other executives. However, "His absence (with less than an hour of notice) was seen as an affront and slight by the company's Tokyo bosses," according to the site. As a result, he's been effectively fired as talk of a new Spider-Man began in October.

"I love introducing pp [Peter Parker] in cap but I know it comes with so many things since we won't give them what they want what will we give them? We can say it's a cameo but I'll bet it's more and will involve some of his world and it will be peter and spidey right," Amy Pascal said in an email to producer Matt Tolmach at one point, questioning how Spider-Man might fit into Marvel's longterm plans. Even more interesting though is a memo Pascal wrote to herself with issues they would need to take up with Marvel Studios if Sony were to agree to their rebooting of the character in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. "if we have spiderman in cap 3. what is our fee and our back end. need script approval, casting approval of sm and aunt may and consultation of mays house in queens and any other spiderman locations we may need in future movies. also approval of new spiderman costume> how long is he is the movie? how closely does it follow the civil war story line? does the world find out who spiderman is? are there any other characters from the spiderman universe they are using? can we use one of the marvel characters in our future spiderman movies not produced by marvel.can we use cap to set up ss? can drew work with the russos to get this done? are we renting him out?" Some interesting questions!

As you might imagine, this cameo (at this point, it seems as if they were only talking about lending Spider-Man to Marvel Studios for a single appearance) wouldn't have been free, and Pascal discussed both merchandising rights and taking a cut of the box office for the third Captain America movie. As for a solo Spider-Man outing following this appearance, Sony wanted to retain creative control over everything from the casting to script and director, something which may have put Marvel off. In fact, they wanted Marvel to consult on marketing materials ("because they are really good") but didn't appear to be willing to offer anything more than Spider-Man existing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The plan would be to shoot this in 2015/16 for a 2017 release.

Even more questions raised by Pascal give us an idea of where this potential crossover could lead:
would we have to dismantle ss?
can drew goddard write the sm original?
who would direct the sm movie?
what do we do with matt tolmach and avi?
they can not put spidey in future spiderman movies or team ups.
we need to keep animation rights for a theatrical relaesse spiderman move to be directed by lord and miller. we need to be able to make spiderman movies after this movie we need to be able to make the girl team up movie
is it possible to put spidey in worlds without other characcters once we is with iron man and cap
can we have him in cap and then 6 months later in ss
we have a right to co finance any movie that spiderman is in and get a production credit
we get to make future movies with our characters and theirs in a collorative way but we dont need their approval. marvel produces a bunch of spiderman movies for sony the way they do for disney....all spiderman dominent movie are financed snd marketed by us event though disney will have the mrech on eerything
we can put the marvel and even disney logo on ours if we can put sony on theirs
As you can see, they seemed to really come around to the idea of Marvel taking over the Spider-Man franchise, but still wanted to push ahead with an animated feature helmed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller and that llive-action female-led spinoff. They were also hoping that Captain America: Civil War could somehow help set up the events of Sinister Six, but do seem open to scrapping that movie if necessary. It even sounds like they want to use some of Marvel's characters in their Spider-Man movies! Ultimately, this shows us that there's a lot to be worked out if such a deal goes ahead, and as talks apparently fell through after the emails you see here, the fate of the Spider-Man franchise is now unclear. Surely Sony can't ignore the overwhelming demand to see Spidey in the MCU since these emails leaked, right? Be sure to share your thoughts on all of this below...

Sony Has (Surprisingly Not Terrible) Plans To Reboot SPIDER-MAN... Again

A new report on the "Sony Hack" has revealed an extensive outline for the studio's plans to reboot the reboot for their Spider-Man franchise. The outline sent from Jeff Robinov to Amy Pascal features details on potential directors, plot, & the possibility of seeing Spidey as an adult. Check it out!



The widespread "Sony Hack" has proven to be more than devastating for the studio and its employees as secret after secret has been made available to the general public. While much has been revealed over the past week and much more is expected to be revealed in the coming winter, it has been news of their sole Marvel property, Spider-Man, that has brought some of the most noteworthy stories.


The Daily Beast has now revealed new details from the hack revealing that Sony planned on rebooting the reboot to Spider-Man! This fresh news comes from an 8-page document (dated Nov.13) sent from Jeff Robinov, head of Studio 8, to Amy Pascal, Sony Pictures co-chairman, outlining a plan to reboot the entire Spider-Man franchise. His email begins with immense praise for the beloved hero: "To argue that there’s plenty of other superhero movies with levity in the marketplace, so why make more Spider-Man movies, would be akin to saying there’s no room for James Bond films because of all the espionage films and franchises that have come out over the years. There will always be room for this beloved, iconic hero."

Robinov then goes on to discuss the main purpose behind his e-mail: the reboot of Spider-Man. He compares Spidey to James Bond and surprisingly makes a lot of sense: "In the next Spider-Man movies, we can’t go back to his origin story. Think of the 25 films in the James Bond franchise; just because a new creative team comes aboard, and breathes new life into a classic property, doesn’t mean the origin story has to be retold." Now, wouldn't that be a welcome sight? A Spider-Man film without the retelling of an origin story we've already seen twice in the past 12 years. Robinov follows this up with a long list of potential directors for the hypothetical reboot featuring a ton of familiar faces:
  • Brad Bird
  • Edgar Wright
  • David Yates
  • Damien Chazelle
  • Glenn Ficarra & John Requa
  • Phil Lord & Chris Miller

  • Colin Trevorrow
  • James Gunn
  • Chris Buck & Jennifer Lee
  • Joe Cornish
  • Don Hall & Chris Williams
  • Joachim Rønning & Espen Sandberg


Robinov finishes his correspondence with a discussion on the most important part of the film, the story. Instead of deciding on the story himself, he says he would rather sit down and have an extensive discussion with the filmmakers and learn how they would approach a new Spider-Man film. However, despite saying this, he does discuss a potential plot featuring a very popular Spider-Man story, which he may or may not have learned about from Wikipedia, that could be interesting:
I might suggest looking at what is widely thought to be the most beloved Spider-Man storyline of all time – “Kraven’s Last Hunt” – which ran across Amazing Spider-Man #293-294, Spectacular Spider-Man #131-132, and Web of Spider-Man #31-32. (In fact, Comic Book Resources polled their readers in 2012, and this storyline was voted as the single greatest Spider-Man storyline of all time.)

In it, Kraven the Hunter tracks down Spider-Man, shoots him repeatedly, and leaves him for dead, buried underground. He then dons a Spider-Man costume and savagely starts attacking criminals.

What makes this story resonate with fans is that it proves it takes more than just the costume to become “Spider-Man.” No matter what he’s wearing, or what predicament he’s facing, Peter Parker is sensitive, passionate, and connected to those he’s interacting with in a very powerful way. It’s not Peter’s powers that make him special – Kraven, and every other superhuman in the Marvel Universe, all have powers. Peter is special because of his values, because of what drives him, because of the lessons he’s learned from Uncle Ben’s death, and because of his love for Mary Jane. I’ve pasted a few pivotal pages from this book so you can see just how intense this storyline is.

We also get to see how Mary Jane deals with Peter’s disappearance, and how she would react if Peter ever died in action.
Doesn't sound half-bad, does it? He also touches on another angle that would see Peter Parker as an adult instead of the "teenager/college student" we've seen in the past five films:
Another side of Spider-Man that might be interesting to explore in a reboot is seeing him as an adult. Spidey hasn’t remained a teenager over the 52 years he’s been around. He’s moved in with his girlfriend, gotten married, and in some storylines, even became a science teacher at a high school.

It might feel fresh to see Peter Parker juggling with adult issues. He’s done so in the comics for decades, and kids still found this fun to read.
This could theoretically mean that a slightly older actor (or an actor playing his actual age) could be up to take on the Spider-Man mantle from Andrew Garfield, who may officially be out of the franchise. While this opens up the options, Tobey Maguire would be a welcome return for many or if you want fresh blood, it looks like Sony might have had their eye on Ryan Gosling.

This week has been tough to digest for a lot of Spider-Man fans, what do you guys make of all this news? Does this potential new reboot sound like a good idea? Could Sony recreate Spider-Man similiar to what they did with James Bond? Or do you no longer have faith in Sony? Is it time Marvel takes over and helps bring their most beloved hero back to prominence?

RUMOR: Marvel And Sony To Talk SPIDER-MAN Next Year; Kevin Feige Wants Avi Arad GONE


A new report claims that a meeting will take place between Marvel Studios and Sony early next year, with Spider-Man making his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut shortly after if things work out. However, Kevin Feige is determined to make some behind-the-scenes changes...




Take the following with a pinch of salt, but if all these "Sony Hack" reports about Spider-Man have been getting you down, you'd best keep your fingers crossed that it's true! According to Screen Gonzo's sources, a meeting is set to take place between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures in January, with Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal among those present. They believe that we'll get some "good news" by February, an indication perhaps that Sony are finally giving in and allowing Marvel to take over the Spider-man franchise from at least a creative standpoint. It could be that the character first appears in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in an upcoming after-credits scene, though it's not clear whether the site means Avengers: Age of Ultron or Captain America: Civil War (it appears to be the latter). Kevin Feige is said to be happy with the way the deal is shaping up too.

Something which was quite unusual about Joe and Anthony Russo offering to serve as producers on the Spider-Man franchise for Sony was how they would fit into that world when they'll seemingly be busy with Avengers: Infinity War. After all, it's hard to imagine Feige being too happy with them diverting their attention elsewhere, especially when Sony are effectively a rival studio to Marvel! This report helps that all make a little more sense, as the Captain America: The Winter Soldier are the ones apparently being eyed to take on a Marvel Studios Spider-Man trilogy, serving as both writers and producers. Also, despite protests from Pascal and others at Sony, Feige wants Avi Arad nowhere near this new take on Spidey, something which should come as a huge relief to fans of the character. As we said, take this with a pinch of salt for now, and stay tuned for more...

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR Said To Be Moving Ahead Without SPIDER-MAN


While there's still every chance that Spider-Man could end up joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a new report claims that the ship has sailed and work is now moving ahead on a Captain America: Civil War which will not include Peter Parker. Hit the jump for details on that and more!




Badass Digest have apparently reached out to their Marvel sources about the chances of Spider-Man appearing in Captain America: Civil War, and the answer they received might just disappoint you! As of right now, it's said that the "ship has sailed" and Peter Parker is not factored into the current iteration of this movie. They add that the chances of a cameo or after-credits appearance is still there, but a major role seems extremely unlikely. After all, Marvel need a completed story and script before shooting begins and can't change the whole thing at the last minute if a deal is reached with Sony Pictures at some point in the New Year! The site also reports that, "One of my sources reiterates that Winter Soldier will be central to the story, and that there have been hints planted through the Marvel movies as to how that works." Is Tony Stark about to discover that Steve Rogers' best friend murdered his parents? For now, we'll have to wait and see...

Marvel Wants SPIDER-MAN Cameos In AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR PART I & II


Another email discussing Sony and Marvel's plans for Spider-Man if he is to be included in the Marvel cinematic universe has been uncovered. In it, Marvel wants Spidey to appear in their Avengers: Infinity War movies and to send him back to high school.




Recently, we all learned Sony has been working on a deal with Marvel Studios that would allow Spider-Man to enter the Marvel cinematic universe. His first appearance could be a cameo in Captain America: Civil War. So, it was assumed Marvel Studio might want to have Spidey make appearances in Avengers 3 and 4 as well, but now we have confirmation of it.

Val Broeksmit has been rummaging through Sony's dirty laundry and he came across an interesting email exchange between Andrew Gumpert, the President of Worldwide Business Affairs and Operations for Columbia Pictures, and Sony Entertainment Chairman Amy Pascal. In it, Gumpert told Pascal, if the deal goes through and Marvel gains control of Spider-Man they don't want Spidey's next solo film to be a continuation of the Captain America: Civil War plot just because he would be making a cameo in it. But, Spidey's new universe would "exist in a world where that story has happened" and "superheroes are now divided into two groups." Gumpert also shared details about Spider-Man's planned Captain America 3 cameo. Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) would recruit Spider-Man and give him a suit. He would also meet Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and of course, Captain America (Chris Evans). Furthermore, Marvel would like to start the next Spider-Man solo film with Peter Parker back in high school, living with his Aunt May at their home in Queens.

That's not all! Marvel wants Spider-Man to appear in the Avengers: Infinity War movies that will be released May 4, 2018 and May 3, 2019. In order to make that happen Marvel wants Sony to guarantee that a second standalone Spider-Man film would be released in 2019. Marvel wants that reassurance because they don't want there to be a long delay between his solo films.

Gumpert appears to be in favor of Marvel's plan and believes it will benefit Sony more than Marvel. It also appears that Pascal would rather hold off on the solo Spider-Man films until after Avengers 3 and 4 are released.

EDITORIAL: Why SPIDER-MAN Can't Survive Without The Marvel Cinematic Universe


There's been a lot of talk about the Spider-Man franchise, but regardless of how you look at it, it seems fair to say that only Marvel Studios can save this iconic Marvel superhero from receiving the same fate as characters like Ghost Rider and The Punisher. Here's my in-depth take on why that is...




It's been an interesting couple of weeks for Spider-Man fans. The "Sony Hack" has revealed a ton of details about what might be in store for the iconic Marvel superhero, but perhaps the biggest revelation is that Marvel Studios do indeed want to get their hands back on arguably their greatest and most recognisable character. Of course, had The Amazing Spider-Man 2 not been a critical and commercial failure, Sony Pictures would have likely forged ahead with their plans for The Amazing Spider-Man 3, The Sinister Six, and Venom. Before anyone argues with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 being labelled a failure, the majority of respected critics and fans disliked it, and combine that with the fact that Sony were hoping for a return of over $1 billion (but only got around $700 million after spending upwards of $250 million), it WAS a FAILURE. Like it or not, that is simply a fact!

As a result, Marvel Studios obviously decided to take advantage of Sony's desperation and confusion about where to go next with the franchise by offering them a deal. There have been so many emails and conflicting reports, we honestly have no idea whether it's going to happen or what it might involve. A recent report claimed that the emails revealed that Peter Parker would be decked out in the Iron Spider suit in Captain America: Civil War before starring in a rebooted series of movies set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the taking on a role in the two-part Avengers: Infinity War. It all sounds pretty good (apart from the fact that Marvel apparently want to keep Peter Parker a teenager), but do Kevin Feige and company really need Spider-Man?

No.

Even so, the financial benefits of adding Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be great, and with the contracts of their Phase One actors nearing an end, making Spider-Man the face of Phase Four would be a smart move. You can't help but feel that Sony have no other choice, but there's still every chance they move ahead with their own reboot or turn The Sinister Six into the movie we all want; Spider-Man VERSUS The Sinister Six. The fact is though, even the guy who runs part of Sony's film department had to copy and paste ideas from Wikipedia to justify keeping Spidey. They're clueless and relying on producers like Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach who believe that Venom is only worth greenlighting because of toy sales. Arad has royally f***ed up three Spider-Man movies in a row now, not too dissimilar to what Lauren Shuler Donner did with X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Even Fox have turned their act around though with three good movies in a row - X-Men: First Class, The Wolverine, and X-Men: Days of Future Past - even if they aren't all that faithful to the comic books.

Sony have no one to steer them in the right direction, and it's hard to imagine them making a good Spider-Man movie at this point; it has after all been a decade since the release of the last really great one (that would be 2004's Spider-Man 2 in case you're not old enough to remember).

Nothing Sony has planned sounds remotely appealing because they ultimately don't understand the character they hold the rights to. Like the Ghost Rider franchise, they run the risk of running Spider-Man into the ground, and it wouldn't be all that surprising to see the character ending up on the shelf for years like the Fantastic Four at this rate. That's why Marvel Studios need to be involved in restoring Spider-Man to greatness. Sure, bringing in new producers and rebooting again at Sony could work, but there's no evidence to support that statement. They brought Venom to life in 2007 and got the character completely wrong. They promised an "Untold Story" and gave us more of the same, removing anything new through extensive reshoots. They repeated the mistakes of the past by cramming too many villains into The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Marvel Studios meanwhile have made hits out of movies starring Captain America, Thor, and the freaking Guardians of the Galaxy!

Imagine what people who care about and understand Spider-Man could do with him? This isn't just about throwing him into The Avengers to make a quick buck, it's about getting the character right; not the humourless Peter Parker of Sam Raimi's trilogy or the cocky and unlikeable Peter Parker from Marc Webb's movies. Marvel Studios have made a lot of changes to the comic books, but the spirit of the characters and what we love about them has remained intact. The Green Goblin and Doctor Octopus were great, but did they or any of the other villains we've so far seen really do their comic book counterparts justice? Think back also to the shrill Mary Jane Watson or Emma Stone's goofy Gwen Stacy (both little more than damsels in distress rather than the strong female characters we've seen in the Marvel Studios movies like Peggy Carter and Pepper Potts).

Without Marvel Studios, Sony Pictures will move ahead with more mediocre movies which will continue until moviegoers are more interested in movies about Doctor Strange and The Inhumans than arguably Stan Lee's greatest creation. Spider-Man will then sit on the shelf for a number of years and the rights will probably revert regardless, but by that point, Spidey will probably just be relegated to TV because Marvel don't see the financial viability of giving him a movie (similar to what has happened to Daredevil). The only way to save this franchise is for Marvel Studios to take creative control and to integrate him into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There, the right stories can be told, and we can see him flourish alongside Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

Would it be nice to see the Fantastic Four and X-Men join him? Sure, but they're holding their own right now. Spider-Man isn't, and his salvation can be brought about by only one man: Kevin Feige. What do you think?

EXCLUSIVE: Details On Marvel/Sony SPIDER-MAN Deal; Drew Goddard Eyed To Direct Solo Movie


How will the deal work between Marvel and Sony? Which movies will Spider-Man appear in? Who will write and direct the wallcrawler's first Marvel Studios produced solo outing? How much of a loss did The Amazing Spider-Man 2 make? All those details and more can be found here...




We've been provided with some of the leaked documents from the "Sony Hack", and they offer up more details on the deal which was being discussed between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures in regards to the future of Spider-Man. It's worth noting that some of this contradicts and confirms what we heard from some of those obscure foreign sites (who probably made up that information for attention and "via" traffic, especially as most of it sounded like glorified fan-fiction).

If Spider-Man appears in Captain America: Civil War, Sony will co-finance 25% of the movie. Marvel then co-finances 25% of Spider-Man's next solo film which is scheduled to be released in July 2017. The deal allows Sony to use TWO major Marvel characters and continue the plot from Civil War in regards to how it relates to Spider-Man. Spider-Man would also appear in Avengers: Infinity War - Part 1 in 2018, with another Marvel produced Spider-Man movie following in July 2019.

Sony asked for approval over the costume, script (but only the parts specifically involving Spider-Man), and casting, with said actor required to sign a three-picture deal or more. The way this part of the document is worded makes it sound very much like a collaboration rather than one studio having more control than the other. They do however point out that Kevin Feige must serve as a producer, and if for some reason he leaves Marvel, they would be allowed to select his replacement. They also want Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach to be given executive producer credits, and state that it would be pre-agreed that Drew Goddard both writes and directs the first movie.

On the business side of things, if any of the Marvel movies Spider-Man is included in misses their release date, Sony would be paid damages of $100 million, and the deal would be terminated. Sony have only three years and nine months to start pre-production before the rights revert, and Captain America: Civil War would reset the clock on this period. Sony also asked for Marvel's help in ensuring that the "D Machine" would have to be accessible for Spider-Man's solo movies in regards to their TV channels, radio networks, theme parks, and more. The deal would be announced at a press event by both studios on a mutually agreed upon date.


We've also seen documents which indicate that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 earned only $65 million BEFORE overheads, and that they expect earnings to significantly increase after making the deal with Marvel. These are internal documents, and it's not clear how much would change as the deal is discussed. However, this appears to have been put together following discussions rather than as a proposal. We have of course heard that talks broke down, but nothing specific in regards to why, and various outlets have since reported that this is going to happen. Stay tuned for updates...

It’s 2015 and with the new year comes a new set of Spider-Man movie rumors. If you haven’t been following along, The Amazing Spider-Man franchise has been the hot topic of comic book movie fans for a few months thanks to the disastrous leaks of internal Sony documents and emails from hacker attacks late last year.

The leaks revealed that Sony and Marvel were in discussions to potentially work out a deal that would alter the course of Sony’s current plans for The Amazing Spider-Man franchise after lower-than-expected box office earnings and mixed reviews of the latest series installment. In the last decade, the Spider-Man franchise went from being the biggest superhero movie brand, to the smallest out of the big four and that is simply not acceptable for Sony’s decision makers and the studio’s bottom line. As a result, the plans for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 & 4, along with spinoffs for Sinister Six and Venom have been in a state of flux, drowning in rumors of cancellations. Needless to say, the buzz is not positive for Spidey.

What began as rumors are now a reality and the Sony leak revealed that executives, producers and filmmakers involved with Spider-Man would be meeting this month, January 2015, at a “summit” to put together a plan for the iconic character. Reports confirmed that at one point, Marvel wanted to introduce their own version of Spider-Man (played by someone other than Andrew Garfield) in Captain America: Civil War in May 2016 but Sony and Marvel couldn’t come to an agreement in time to make that happen since the script is mostly done and filming begins soon.

The next best case scenario for a Spider-Man introduction in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – and most logical – would then be The Avengers 3 (Infinity War- Part 1). We’re not talking cameos here, we mean an actual legitimate role.

And that’s what Latino-Review is sharing a rumor of today. They won’t detail a source, and it could be speculation based on word-of-mouth, but their report explains that Spider-Man will indeed be returning to the Marvel family in their live-action film franchise and will have a key role in The Avengers: Infinity War- Part 1 in 2018. That particular movie, as they explain and as we’ve discussed on the site before, will feature a very different team of heroes because of events that will occur in Phase 3 of the MCU.

Comic readers and Captain America fans can piece together what’ll happen to Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) at the end of Civil War and the title for Thor 3 (Raganorok) which means “the end of all things” hints that Thor may not be in a great spot at the end of that feature. Toss in the years of rumors about what’ll happen to Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) after he loses control in The Avengers: Age of Ultron and you can see why the core heroes we’ve known since Phase 1 might not be the happy family protecting Earth by the end of Phase 3.

So, if they’re all occupied elsewhere in the growing cinematic universe, and we’re meeting a large series of new heroes on Netflix (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist) and in upcoming films (Ant-Man, Wasp, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Captain Marvel) – who better to serve as a face of The Avengers than Marvel’s most popular hero of all-time: Spider-Man.

If Marvel and Sony can make it work, it’s the best thing that can happen to Spider-Man and the MCU. Spider-Man should show up in The Avengers and we’ve said that since the first movie saw his home, New York, under attack by aliens. At this point it almost needs to happen since excitement for another Amazing Spider-Man under the current regime is at an all-time low and the reality is that nothing Sony can do with the Marvel characters they own is as exciting as Spider-Man standing alongside The Avengers.

That’s why it’s very believable that Captain America 2 & 3 directors Anthony and Joe Russo (who are reportedly going to direct The Avengers 3 & 4 as well) could still produce Sony’s new Spider-Man solo movies in a partnership agreement between their own production company, Marvel and Sony, that will see each studio sharing characters. We’ll see if something along those lines happens in the very near future but if the news proves true, it’s still possible for Spider-Man to show up in Captain America: Civil War. And with Marvel launching an entire sub-franchise on Netflix all taking place in New York, there’s plenty of room for cameos and setups.

It’s all connected.

The "source" has been right about 50% of the time in the past

Spider-Man In AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR? Nope! Sony Reps Dismiss Rumors


Are you excited about Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Avengers: Infinity War? Well, Sony Pictures have now responded to today's reports, dismissing them entirely. Uh, who's looking forward to The Amazing Spider-Man 3 then? Read on for details...




The possibility of Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe was first reported on last year after the tepic critical and commerical response to The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The "Sony Hack" would reveal that it was something actively being discussed between Marvel Studios and Sony, with talks seemingly breaking down shortly after, though other reports would later claim otherwise.

Earlier today, we heard that the deal may be done, with Spidey set to appear in Avengers: Infinity War. Comic Book Resources have since reached out to Sony, and a studio representitive told them that the report is an "old rumor" with "no validity whatsoever." Marvel and Disney have not yet responded. Ultimately, this may mean nothing, but it is odd that they would respond this way.

Based on past experience, there's really no way of knowing how to take this as denials have sometimes been proved wrong, and were other times spot on. It's a guessing game!

Regardless, we're going to find out one way or the other soon enough, as Sinister Six is still supposed to be coming out in 2016. So, start counting down the days until that pointless movie is released and the sure to be terrible third instalment of The Amazing Spider-Man franchise. Yay?

F*** you, Sony.

'Spider-Man' In The MCU? Forgeddaboutit! Sounds Like Sony Are Forging Ahead With SINISTER SIX


If you were getting all excited about the prospect of Spider-Man joining Earth's Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Infinity War, you may want to think again!eo It's not confirmed, but it appears as if Sony are indeed forging ahead with Sinister Six. Read on for details...




Considering the fact that leaked "Sony Hack" emails made it clear that the talks between Marvel and Sony about sharing Spider-Man had broken down, it's a little odd that we've since heard so much about Spidey still potentially joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Well, as many have predicted, it appears as if Sony really are forging ahead with Sinister Six as planned!

How legit are the Tweets below? It's hard to say, but considering the fact that they were unearthed by pure chance and the guy didn't send them to anyone directly (for attention), I feel at least somewhat confident in saying that he probably isn't making it up for kicks! We'll have to wait and see, but you have to imagine we'll hear something a little more definite sooner rather than later...

There's no one who would love to see Spider-Man in the MCU more than me, but it was always a long shot. Could it be that a deal has been made and that Marvel will oversee Sinister Six? Possibly. However, if not, we just now have to hope that Sony have learned their lessons from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and that Drew Goddard will steer the franchise in the right direction.

It seems the #SinisterSix movie is going to shoot in Vancouver. I might see Spider-Man running around my hood! I'll eat sand to be an extra.

@Mugsyface dude who worked on Planet of the Apes and used our stock for it came back. Requested S6 stuff for research. Said it was happening

Amy Pascal's Sony Departure Could Lead To Renegotiations With Marvel Over SPIDER-MAN


Amy Pascal has been ousted as the boss of Sony Pictures, and while she's been given a producers credit on all future instalments of the Spider-Man franchise (which most definitely isn't good news for fans), it sounds like her departure will still lead to some major changes...



In a very interesting piece over at Variety which appears to be based on equal parts speculation and insider info, they weigh in on the possible future of the Spider-Man franchise following the departure of Amy Pascal. As you may have already heard, she's been handed a producer's credit on future instalments of the series, a role which hopefully won't see the barely literate studio boss have too much in the way of creative control. Regardless, it seems like the new brass will be the one to make some big changes in the current direction that the series - which is currently in limbo - will be taking. Again, don't take the following as confirmation, but it IS very interesting...
The biggest decision for Lynton and Pascal’s successor will be how to handle the Spider-Man franchise. “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ did respectable business last summer but was hardly the $1 billion blockbuster that Pascal had told folks that she needed it to be.

“Spider-Man” remains a cash cow but the plans for expanding the Spidey universe through villain spin-offs and the next installment may be reexamined — since Pascal played the leading role pursuing that path. A new regime may take a stronger look at returning to the negotiation table with Marvel Studios over Spidey’s rights.


Sony’s last move on that front came in July during Comic-Con when the studio dated spin-off “Sinister Six” for Nov. 11, 2016 as the next tentpole in its key property — while moving back “The Amazing Spider-Man 3″ two years to 2018. The idea of bringing in villains is aimed at making Sony a stronger competitor against the likes of Disney/Marvel’s “Avengers” and Warner Bros.’ “Justice League” superheroes in the coming years.

BREAKING: Marvel Studios To Produce Next Spider-Man Movie






It has just been announced that Disney’s Marvel Studios will produce the next Spider-Man movie, bringing Peter Parker to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

More in a few moments. Here is the official press release:
SONY PICTURES ENTERTAINMENT BRINGS MARVEL STUDIOS INTO THE AMAZING WORLD OF SPIDER-MAN
New Spider-Man Will Appear First in an Upcoming Marvel Film Within Marvel’s Cinematic Universe
Marvel’s Kevin Feige to Produce Next Installment of the Spider-Man Franchise with Amy Pascal
(Culver City, California, and Burbank, California February 09, 2015) – Sony Pictures Entertainment and Marvel Studios announced today that Sony is bringing Marvel into the amazing world of Spider-Man.
Under the deal, the new Spider-Man will first appear in a Marvel film from Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (MCU). Sony Pictures will thereafter release the next installment of its $4 billion Spider-Man franchise, on July 28, 2017, in a film that will be co-produced by Kevin Feige and his expert team at Marvel and Amy Pascal, who oversaw the franchise launch for the studio 13 years ago. Together, they will collaborate on a new creative direction for the web slinger. Sony Pictures will continue to finance, distribute, own and have final creative control of the Spider-Man films.
Marvel and Sony Pictures are also exploring opportunities to integrate characters from the MCU into future Spider-Man films.
The new relationship follows a decade of speculation among fans about whether Spider-Man – who has always been an integral and important part of the larger Marvel Universe in the comic books – could become part of the Marvel Universe on the big screen. Spider-Man has more than 50 years of history in Marvel’s world, and with this deal, fans will be able to experience Spider-Man taking his rightful place among other Super Heroes in the MCU.
Bob Iger, Chairman and CEO, The Walt Disney Company said: “Spider-Man is one of Marvel’s great characters, beloved around the world. We’re thrilled to work with Sony Pictures to bring the iconic web-slinger into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which opens up fantastic new opportunities for storytelling and franchise building.”

“We always want to collaborate with the best and most successful filmmakers to grow our franchises and develop our characters. Marvel, Kevin Feige and Amy, who helped orchestrate this deal, are the perfect team to help produce the next chapter of Spider-Man,” said Michael Lynton, Chairman and CEO of Sony Pictures Entertainment. “This is the right decision for the franchise, for our business, for Marvel, and for the fans.”
“Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios share a love for the characters in the Spider-Man universe and have a long, successful history of working together. This new level of collaboration is the perfect way to take Peter Parker’s story into the future,” added Doug Belgrad, president, Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group.
“I am thrilled to team with my friends at Sony Pictures along with Amy Pascal to produce the next Spider-Man movie,” said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. “Amy has been deeply involved in the realization on film of one of the world’s most beloved characters. Marvel’s involvement will hopefully deliver the creative continuity and authenticity that fans demand from the MCU. I am equally excited for the opportunity to have Spider-Man appear in the MCU, something which both we at Marvel, and fans alike, have been looking forward to for years.”

Spider-Man in the MCU, But Andrew Garfield Won’t Be

You may remember Andrew Garfield’s quite impassioned speech to fans at San Diego Comic Con prior to the release of The Amazing Spider-Man; he made a pretty clear, simply and emotionally plea to fans that he as just as big a Spider-Man fan boy as some of the people in the audience, if not bigger. So it was, shall we say, disappointing when we got Amazing movies that were something less than amazing as Sony and its team on the Spider-Man franchise floundered hopelessly trying to turn out not just big loud new Spider-Man films, but a whole Spider-Man universe. So in the wake of yesterday’s bombshell announcement, there’s still a lot of unanswered questions, but the answer to one of them seems to be that Garfield will no longer be playing your friendly neighborhood web-head.
Multiple reports confirm that, sadly, Garfield is out as the Amazing Spider-Man:

CONFIRMED: Andrew Garfield is NO LONGER Spider-Man. Someone new will be cast. First appearance in MCU, then solo film.

Where’s that, “Oh, you just lost” sound effect from The Price is Right? Seriously though, it’s a shame that Garfield got cast off due to a combination of Sony’s poor franchise management and Marvel’s desire to start from scratch. All-in-all, he was a decent Spider-Man/Peter Parker, easily carrying the physical demands of the role and the comedic zingers and populism of Spider-Man while being a smart and thoughtful Peter. You may disagree, but the problems of The Amazing Spider-Man were not Garfield’s, and I think he was definitely a worthy inheritor to the role, if not even better casting than Toby Maguire. (What happened to him by the way?)
So who might next be called up to exercise great power and great responsibility? Some are saying that the leading contender is Dylan O’Brien, star of The Maze Runner and TV’s Teen Wolf. Former Percy Jackson Logan Lerman will definitely be in the shuffle having past heroic experience, and I think Marvel would have to be crazy not to consider Flash star Grant Gustin, who’s portrayal of the Fastest Man Alive has a definite Spider-Man feel. Unfortunately though I don’t think Marvel’s going to hire The Flash to play Spider-Man. Dark horse candidate? Thomas Mann, star of Project X, who definitely knows how to play an appealing nerd forced to deal with a situation that gets him in over his head.
Don’t feel too bad for Garfield though. He will next appear in the upcoming historical drama by Martin Scorsese, Silence, about two Jesuit priests that travel to Japan to find their lost mentor. He’s one of the priests.

Skip Parker and go with Miles Morales, unless they are planning on Spider-man taking on the role he had in the civil war books. If would make sense to bring back Garfield so it's not just random spider-man showing up in the Cap: civil war.

either way I'm excited Marvel has control now!
