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

And -I believe- Sony doesn't even have to release a movie just "make" one. This is what brought us that crappy, un-released, Fantastic Four movie in 1994) It was only done so that the studio could retain the rights to make a movie so they just threw something together, never intending to release it.

I suspect Sony has something similar with Spider-man and X-Men where so-long as they "do something" with the property they keep the rights. Even if they don't try or even release it.

Given how strong Marvel is right now they would be wise to try and to get the rights back but I suspect Sony won't give them up cheaply or easily. Really, that contract was desperately and hastily written without any consideration to Marvel getting control back of pretty much their own property.

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

Fox owns the rights to X-Men. Sony has Ghost Rider and Spider-Man, and yeah you are correct they just full fill the rights by making a movie. They don't have to release it.

Here are the two new official posters in case no one has seen them yet.

Those are cool. I wasn't sure what I thought of the new suit at first, but it's growing on me. I just hope I can find someone to go with me when this comes out.

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

I would buy the second one. The first one is pretty cool as well.

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

Kurtzman and Orci to write the sequel? Seems so, as Vanderbilt, who wrote the first movie and a draft of the second one, is tied up with his Die Hard/ Air Force One/ S.7 of 24 rip-off White House Down

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

This is awesome news as far as I'm concerned. I'm surprised Orci and Kurtzman have the time given all their own current projects. Vanderbilt also wrote a draft of "Spider-Man 4" before it was axed by Sony.

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

"The Amazing Spider-Man" will get another trailer, this time attached to "The Avengers". So that is now Batman and Spidey!

We can all blame the "Ultimate Spider-man" cartoon for this

Just like the Cylon toaster I fully expect to see this show up on The Big Bang Theory next season. Unless the ties to Warners really shut it down from up top.

I'm not sure if I find this cool, or strange.
