No. This is a straight up reboot of the film franchise. Ignore what Avi said.

Yeah, it's pretty much best to just ignore anything and everything Avi Arad ever says.

Imagine if Sam Raimi followed that same advice. Spider-Man 3 probably wouldn't have sucked!

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

They might as well just keep rebooting it every time, we can have every director and hot young actor/actress combo in Hollywood take their turn one after the other... no messy problems with script ideas. Julie Tamor is penciled in for 2027!


...in case you can't tell, I think this is pointless lol.

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I thought it was pointless too until I saw the quality of the people working on the film, that changed my mind pretty quickly. I personally think Sony should have given the franchise a bit of a rest but don't mind where they've taken it now.

They couldn't give it a rest. They would have lost the film rights had they done so.

You're confusing the Sony and Fox deals with Marvel. Sony's deal for Spider-Man was for a certain number of films, and that contract length was extended in exchange for Sony returning the television / animated Spider-Man rights to Disney. (Which is why we lost Spectacular Spider-Man. ) The Fox deal, however, is the one that's bound in blood, so that as long as Fox keeps developing movies based upon its properties, it will hang onto those rights in perpetuity.

Granted, this was the deal that saved Marvel from bankruptcy, so it made sense at the time.

No, the Sony deal wasn't for a certain number of films, nor was it extended. Had it been for a certain number of films Marvel and Disney would have reclaimed the film rights and not granted an extension. Simple as that. There's no way they would grant an extension on the film rights for Marvel's most lucrative character merely in exchange for the TV rights. No, Sony had the same type of deal that Fox does, but Disney had their lawyers go over the contract with a fine toothcomb trying to find a way to get the rights away from Sony. The two sides came to an agreement that Sony would give the TV rights back and Disney wouldn't try to prise the film rights away from them, instead leaving the initial contract whereby the film rights would replenish in perpetuity in place without a court fight. Sony nevertheless had to make another Spider-Man film within five years to keep the rights intact.

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

All I know is at one point a break will come. Most likely due to a series of reboot/restart too soon. Those films doing poorly at the box office. Saturation of one character in a continual loop will have eventually a diminishing returns effect leading the studio to feel the financial gamble isn't there. At some point. That point may be 10 yrs away but it will come. Spidey and X-Men will at some point be back under Marvel/Disney. Who then can allow the character(s) time to breath without the stress of turning out a film in 5yrs or else.

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

There will probably be a break after this trilogy. Then Marvel/Disney will make a concerted enough to try and get the rights so they can do films in their universe.

That first picture does not look right. Looks like his spider-dong is hanging out, it must have been tingling.

That one in the pants is funny to me. And the eyes are slimmer.
