Sony Pictures – you know, the guys that bring you movies about that spider-guy – may be looking to ramp up their game in the super hero franchise wars. In addition to pretty much committing to an endless series of Amazing Spider-Man sequels, it looks like they may setting their sights on the fourth installment of the franchise as a way to introduce new characters to their own films.
Marc Webb, in an interview with Crave Online, had this to say:
“Well, I think this was conceived of as a trilogy so there was a defined architecture to the story we were telling and we had sort of a rough outline of what was going to happen. I think [for] the fourth movie, what we’ve discovered is there are so many ancillary characters, that have enormous, cinematic potential that there may be other ways to exploit those characters, in a way that is exciting and fun and worthwhile. It might not just be a Spider-Man movie.”
Well, it’s a long way between Amazing Spider-Man 2 “coming soon” and the script for number 4, but at least Sony is heading in the right direction to stay competitive. With any luck, we could see some unusual super hero flicks ahead.
What Spidey franchise heroes/villains do you think could hold down their own flick? Personally, my vote is for Bartok the Leaper. Nothing says awesome like a jumpy French guy.
