Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)
My main point about Sony and Rami is that "leaving it with Rami" was never going to be an option. The two sides had butted heads essentially since "Spider-Man 2". Rami got tired of their constant interference and left (or was fired not sure what the specifics were). Sony as the rights holder dictates the direction of the film really. Same as Marvel Studios has been doing with their vision. There was also not an option to "rest the franchise" since they can not do that.
I don't blame Rami at all for being frustrated with the studio interference. I'm actually curious to see how much influence they have had over Marc Webb. He's probably had Avi in his ear as well barking about this and that.
