The folks at Sony have been desperately trying to make their way into the big boys club with regards to the super hero movie craze. All sorts of news and rumors have trickled down from on-high, talking about the endless stream of movies that the production company wants to make, each and every one of them a Spider-Man or Spider-Man spin-off flick. It was believed that Amazing Spider-Man 3 was going to be the next in line and that Sony would proceed into unknown territory from there. Now, it seems as if that may not be the case. (more…)

Is ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 3′ Getting Pushed Back?

I usually feel like a colossal piece of shit when I root for a film to fail (because who knows how art will age, be viewed in the context of history, etc.), but I definitely think I can make an exception when it comes to Sony’s Amazing Spider-Man films. These ‘movies’ are artless, consumerist dog-piles; the worst examples of comic book anti-cinema being authored by a boardroom full of bottom-line motivated suits. But it looks like we’re going to be spared another feature-length trailer for future franchise installments for at least a little while longer, as Sony may be pushing Marc Webb’s third pile-driver of fuck back until 2017 (though ‘never’ is certainly the better option).

This time around it’s Sonic the Hedgehog and the perpetrators of this potential eye-roller are the execs over at Sony. Scroll on for more. (more…)

Whatever: Do Movie Tie-In Toys Matter Anymore?

Whether you are aligned with Marvel or DC in this fatuous battle for supremacy, you have to admit that Marvel has been on a bit of a winning streak since the release of the first Iron Man movie; revolutionizing the way that people look at comic book IP and event films while earning a ton of money and accolades in the process.

Perhaps that’s why it feels so weird to see Marvel sustain body blow after body blow as they’ve had to deal with blowback from the Edgar Wright/Ant-Man divorce, Drew Goddard’s ill-timed departure announcement from the Daredevil TV series and rumors that Marvel’s publishing arm might pull the plug on The Fantastic Four and the Ultimate FF comic book series’ to deny FOX a promotional boost in the run-up to the release of their Fantastic Four reboot film. Add to that, X-Force creator Rob Liefeld’s tweeted-out observations about the lack of an X-Men: Days of Future Past action figure line and his proclamation that, “The Fox shut out is real”, and it appears that Marvel may have a new fire to put out… unless they just ignore this controversy until it flames out on its own.

Don’t fret though – IGN has posted the film’s teaser and it gives a very brief look at Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique rounding up some mutant help and declaring herself (at least temporarily) working without Magneto.

Today we have some Amazing Spider-Man 2 news that actually has NOTHING to do  with marketing spam (well, not directly)! I know, I can’t believe it either. But with the  movie coming up in just a few weeks, I guess they feel comfortable enough with what  they’ve put out there thus far? Anyways, the new information is regarding a couple of  interesting things. The first is that, oddly enough, Amazing Spider-Man 2 will feature no TASM after-credits scene, but it will feature a clip from the upcoming X-Men: Days  of Future Past. The other, more sane-sounding bit of news is that some folks are finally talking about what we might see in Amazing Spider-Man 3. Scroll down for all the juicy  info. (more…)

Being as how they don’t really have much to work with other than Spider-Man properties, the folks over at Sony have been searching for any possibility to keep their super hero franchise expanding. They certainly plan on playing out the Amazing Spider-Man films until the world turns to ash, but they also announced plans to focus on some of Spidey’s villains. Venom and the Sinister Six were two of the names dropped as future movie subjects, and now it looks like the Sinister Six movie has a director all lined up. And that director is none-other-than Drew Goddard. (more…)
