SONY announces Amazing Spider-Man 3 and Sinister Six release dates

http://www.deadline.com/2014/07/sony...ion-uncharted/

Days after Disney and Marvel declared release dates for a flurry of superhero films the studio isn’t even ready to identify yet, Columbia Pictures has set its release plans and formalized plans to expand its $4 billion Spider-Man universe. As expected, the next film in the series will be Sinister Six, writer-director Drew Goddard’s bad guy mash-up, which is the first of several planned character and story expansions. That film has been dated for release November 11, 2016, with Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach producing.

Columbia Pictures will then release the third installment of The Amazing Spider-Man, in 2018.
Looks like they are going to take a little more time on ASM3 as many fans were hoping. But they are still going through with the silly Sinister Six idea...

There is also some news about a movie called Uncharted.

Re: SONY announces Amazing Spider-Man 3 and Sinister Six release dates

I wonder who the villain(s) will be in the third film. It might be the Sinister Six I suppose, after their movie is done.


Also wonder if they'll bring in Mary Jane. They did cast Shailene Woodley but she was cut from the finished film, and her star is kind of rising so that might mean she won't be available for the film anyway.

I'd be down with The Jackal simply because Emma Stone is amazing and a Gwen Clone would be more than welcome.

So it's a standalone movie with the Sinister Six?

I was barely able to work up enough interest to go see the last movie.

Re: SONY announces Amazing Spider-Man 3 and Sinister Six release dates

I'm in the minority that quite liked TAS2, for all its flaws but I'm not sure how I feel about the Sinister Six film. I'd rather they just concentrated on making TAS3 really good. For my money, where 2 fell down was the scripting but with Orci out of the picture, I think that should be easily rectified.

I suppose there was 4 years between the 2nd and 3rd Chris Nolan Batman films but with Spider-man and the lead actor being that bit younger, I wonder will such a gap affect where they go with the story. Will Andrew still pass for college-aged or will they skip ahead (so much for the cliffhanger ending).

Well, given how ASM2 ended, they'll look like total assholes if Harry Osborn doesn't have a leading role. And what's more, I'd be astounded if Spidey himself didn't make at least an appearance - it's not as though they have to pay Garfield anything to use the fully suited and masked character, after all.

I'd settle for good or not bad.

Obviously Sony has lost faith in the franchise after the last crapfest.

Obviously, you're exactly wrong. If they were losing faith, they'd announce that they realized that their best creative decision would be to fold the Sinister Six and ASM3 projects into one movie, thereby reducing their risk and giving the united movie a big, clear hook.

Again, given the ending of ASM2, it makes perfect sense to do a Sinister Six movie now rather than after ASM3. They should have arrived at this conclusion months ago, frankly, and maybe they did, but they've very much been making it up as they go along.

That said, movie studios don't exactly play Sun Tzu and reverse psychology with movie announcements. Announcing multiple movies in a franchise where one would be sufficient to retain the all-important rights is a sign of confidence in said franchise, plain and simple.

ASM4 has disappeared off the schedule. Confidence?

Again, given the ending of ASM2,
You mean given the failure of ASM2 they push back 3, throw 4 out the window and hedge their bets on a 'Sinister Six' movie.

I agree. Who the hell even wants to watch another Amazing Spider-man movie. A Sinister Six movie will never get made it ASM3 came out first and put the final nail in the coffin.

Re: SONY announces Amazing Spider-Man 3 and Sinister Six release dates

The rumor was, or the plan was, to release a Spiderman movie every two years, but I think the lower numbers made them realize to not rush things.

But how do you have Sinister 6 without Spiderman? I'm curious to that more than Spiderman 3.

Re: SONY announces Amazing Spider-Man 3 and Sinister Six release dates

I hate that. There's not necessarily any Spider-Man fatigue. It's just that fewer people go to see a movie if everyone is saying it isn't any good. Make a great film and watch the money roll in.

Or, be Michael Bay. His shit always makes money unless Ewan McGregor is in it.
