It was quite funny any fans actually believed the "Sony will sell back rights to Disney" bullshit.

Re: "Amazing Spider-man 2" discussion

^ Aaaand, now I'm having fun imagining what super-cheap placeholder Spidey movies Sony could cook up and give a tiny release to if they ever wanted to give the franchise a relative rest for a few years while retaining the rights...

Spider-Man: Jury Duty! Peter becomes a juror on a murder trial.
Peter Park: 21st Century Gentleman! Peter has a dream in which he never became Spider-Man, nor did he meet Gwen or MJ. Instead, it's a standard romcom in which he woos a random woman. The post-credits scene has him waking up.
Spider-Man: Before Moonrise! Peter attends a science conference in Barcelona, but stops a crime and misses his flight back. Luckily, a French conference attendee is still around, and they spend a night walking through the streets before his flight the next day.

How about Spider-Man: How I met Mary Jane:

The show will be adult Peter telling his kids how he eventually met Mary Jane Watson while hanging out with his four buddies in New York.

Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane

A Spidey show for teenage girls on the Disney Channel. Hey it could work.

^I thought we were talking about ideas for letting Sony keep the Spidey movie rights. Marvel already has the TV rights to all its characters.

^Interesting. I wonder if, since it's television, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. could get away with using Spider-Man or Reed Richards or other characters that Marvel can't use on screen?

Well, we do know that Marvel tried to do an obvious X men type show called "Mutant X" and they ended up getting sued by FOX. Not sure who owns what these days.

This question was addressed recently on io9:

http://io9.com/could-spider-man-and-...s-of-509284323
Technically, Marvel (and thus Disney) do have the TV rights to Spider-Man, the X-Men and all the other characters in the Marvel universe. So this is true, but I don’t think we’re in any danger of actually seeing Spider-Man or Wolverine on SHIELD, and here’s why.

Sony and Fox still have all the image rights to their versions of Spider-Man and the X-Men, so not only would Marvel have to recast the roles, but they’d also have to make sure they looked somewhat different. I don’t know that that means they’d have to put Spidey in his black suit or something, but I do know they couldn’t use the movie suit.

Now, a few nods should be fine — a mention of the X-Men on the news, the Oscorp building added to New York City’s skyline — but I think that’s all we’ll get. Putting Spider-Man on TV would be super-expensive, just special effects-wise, and one of the reasons they chose to do Agents of SHIELD as opposed to a specific superhero show is to minimize that cost. Also, using Spider-Man or the X-Men, while legal, would almost certainly piss off Sony and Fox, and since Marvel is patiently waiting to get the movie rights to its characters back, I doubt they want to damage those relationships.

And most importantly, what would they really gain? Marvel clearly isn’t ready to make a Spider-Man or X-Men TV series, and by adding them into Agents of SHIELD and bringing them into the Marvel movie-verse as minor characters, they’d only be limiting their later options for their movies. You cast Peter Parker, have something happen to him, have him meet Coulson — then it’s pretty much is canon for the Movie-verse, and it could be something that contradicts what Marvel would later want to do in their own actual Spider-Man movie, if they ever get a chance.

So I’d look for a few Easter Eggs, maybe a few mentions of these characters, but nothing like an actual appearance.

And I like the idea of retconning the Rhino's suit into more of a power-loader or battle-armor sort of thing. Basically the same concept, an engulfing body armor that makes the wearer superstrong and invulnerable (and also traps him within it?), but so much less stupid-looking.

The Rhino picture reminds me of Iron Monger

Re: "Amazing Spider-man 2" discussion

Little bitof a round up here:

- Jamie Foxx reveals his Elektro voice on Leno:

http://movies.broadwayworld.com/arti...-LENO-20130612

Could a film that already has Elektro, Rhino and a pair of Osbornes (if not necessarily any Green Goblins) be about to add Black Cat to the mix?

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=105592

I've also heard speculation (too lazy to link it) that Colm Feore is Adrian Toomes aka Vulture in this movie and that the various villains will form The Sinister Six for the 3rd movie.

Speaking of Amazing Spider-man 3, Sony has set release dates not just for it but for TAS4. June 10th 2016 and May 4th 2018 respectively. I guess we're not getting a Star Wars movie in 2018 - I imagine if we were, they would have nabbed that date. And so much for Sony selling the rights to Spider-man or letting them revert to Marvel.

Star Wars movies have never been released on the first weekend of May. They've been released on Memorial Day weekend or the weekend before MD weekend. I don't think Disney will use the first weekend of May for any Star Wars movies in the future. That'll remain a Marvel release slot. I wonder, though, whether there was consultation between Sony and Marvel about a Spider-Man movie taking that slot in 2018 or whether this is Sony staking it out early and showing Marvel that they intend to continue making use of that slot for Spider-Man sometimes and won't abdicate it to Marvel every time.

I wonder if they would ever release a MCU movie and one of the other studios' Marvel movies on the same weekend?
