After denying an initial report, Sony representatives are now confirming that a new Ghostbusters animated movie is being put into development. According to The Wrap, the animated feature will debut after Paul Feig’s upcoming live-action reboot film. The studio will soon begin fielding pitches from writers , but a few key “main ideas” have been tossed around already – read on to learn more!
Hey, remember when Sony was going to create a huge comic book universe based only on Spider-Man characters? Of course you don’t. That was a silly move by studio folk that couldn’t make a single decent Spider-Man movie. Spider-Man?! Anyway, one of the projects that Sony had in mind was Sinister Six, and great pains were taken to set up that project in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but with the rights to Spider-Man, at least partially, going back to Marvel, all that Sinister Six talk dried up. However, the man that was to make the Sinister Six film says that there’s still a chance, however small, that it can still see the light of day. (more…)
A lot of ink (the digital variety) has been spilled about the inadequacies of the Amazing Spider-Man twology that failed to capture imaginations and failed to launch a vast Spider-Man universe for Sony Pictures. What went wrong? Was it the fault of the films’ star Andrew Garfield? Well, from the sounds of it, Garfield certainly seems to be taking on the lion’s share of blame, wrong or not, for how the Amazing Spider-Man films went wrong, and in a new interview he got rather brutally honest about his legacy as Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man. In four words: “I Was Never Spider-Man.” (more…)
It seems that Andrew Garfield was really excited about re-assuming his role as Spider-Man in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 3’, had it been made. However, he may have been assuming a little too much. The 2014 hack into Sony Pictures’ e-mails inferred that neither the Sony or Marvel camps were interested in bringing Garfield back. In an interview with Uproxx, Garfield spoke more about his thoughts on what could have been the 3rd Amazing Spider-Man film, and his views on the Marvel crossover. (more…)
Sony is officially letting the world know what it has going on for the next few years. With reboots and sequels aplenty, it appears that the company is content to take existing properties and ride them for as long as possible – but will movie-goers want to take the ride with them? That’s the million-dollar question.
Spider-Man getting out of Sony’s deathgrip and coming back to Marvel was all fans ever really wanted. Now that he’s back in Marvels loving bosom, there is much dissent and loathing from fans at the prospect of a new film. Jon Watts got the gig to direct a new Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland cast as ole’ web head, and no one fan seems too excited about it. Fans got what they wanted and they’re unhappy about it, at least going by Internet chatter anyway. Given there’s been 5 Spider-Man movies in the last 10 or so years, with the last two being a botched rebootening, its understandable that fans are hesitant to welcome Spidey back to theaters. It does feel like only yesterday that Andrew Garfield was announced as the new Spider-Man.
Director Jon Watts certainly has a challenge selling fans on another cinematic Spidey adventure, but he’s taking it head-on. In a recent Interview withEW, he’s said some words that may be assuring to fanboys. Additionally, USA Today talked to Spider-Man screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein about the film, as well regarding the tonality and little something about the characters origin. (more…)
Ever since the announcement that Sony and Disney/Marvel will be working together to create a new incarnation of Spider-Man – one that will bring him into the already established Marvel Cinematic Universe – people have been pretty excited. There have been casting announcements, a director has been chosen and now we’re one step closer with the addition of a pair of screenwriters. So who will be in charge of regurgitating Peter Parker and his rogue’s gallery for the third time in the last 15 years? Two people, in fact, have been chosen – John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein. (more…)
Variety is reporting that Marvel and Sony have found the actress they want to play Aunt May opposite Tom Holland‘s Peter Parker. It certainly isn’t what we were expecting, but if this Variety source is correct, Marisa Tomei is a fabulous choice for a younger Aunt May to match the younger Peter Parker. (more…)
One of the main complaints (amongst many) about the series of Transformers movies by Michael Bay is that robots in disguise featured in them look nothing like the Transformers we know and love. Of course by that we mean that Bay’s VFX team took a significant departure in the look and style of all the assorted Autobots and Decepticons, so much so that they got their own name, “Bay-formers.” So a lot of you have been missing those good old days from the 80s, and someone has heard your call, and they work in the video game industry. If you’re looking for a taste of the old school then Platinum Games has a surprise for you this fall, and this your first look. (more…)
