I'm splitting this into three threads.

Collider wrote:Alex Kurtzman Directing VENOM Spinoff Movie and Drew Goddard Writing and Possibly Directing THE SINISTER SIX

If you’re a Spider-Man fan, Sony Pictures is about to make your day. That’s because the studio sent out a late night press release loaded with future plans for the Spider-Man movie universe. Here are the highlights:

Sony, in association with Marvel, are developing several new projects in the Spider-Man franchise, with Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner, Ed Solomon, and Drew Goddard to collaborate on overseeing the developing story over several films that will be produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach. The five writers, along with the two producers and Marc Webb, have formed a franchise brain trust to expand the universe for the brand and to develop a continuous tone and thread throughout the films.

Kurtzman, Orci, and Pinkner are writing the screenplay for The Amazing Spider-Man 3, which the studio hopes Webb will return to direct; the film will go into production next fall for release on June 10, 2016.

Kurtzman, Orci and Solomon are writing the screenplay for a Venom movie, which Kurtzman will direct.

Drew Goddard will write, with an eye to direct, The Sinister Six, focusing on the villains in the franchise.

With the comic book genre making more money than ever at the box office, it’s no surprise Sony is pushing forward with more sequels and spinoffs. We’ll have a lot more on this tomorrow, but until then, hit the jump for the press release.

gonna have to edit the year in the title now Kal since we have to wait 4 years!!!

Next Spider-Man delayed

Despite rumours earlier this month that they were going to essentially toss out their plans for the “Spider-Man” franchise, Sony has announced release dates for not only the third film in the series but the long-proposed spin-off “The Sinister Six”.

According to Variety, fans of the series are going to have a wait a little bit longer for “The Amazing Spider-Man 4″ than originally thought. Though penciled-in initially for a 2016 release, the Andrew Garfield-starrer now won’t bow until 2018. But to make up for the wait fans have ahead of them, Sony has slotted “The Sinister Six” – a film fixing around the villains that terrorize Spidey- for November 11, 2016.

No doubt we’ll hear more on Sony’s future “Spider-Man” plans at Comic-Con this weekend.

I don't see why there is such a big delay and why it takes so long to put together.

If Sinister Six comes out in November 2016, why not Spidey in the summer of 2017?!

Spider-Man seems to have been rebooted by Sony again. Also due to the Sony hack I believe it's only a matter of time before Spidey goes home to Marvel.

Worst Previews wrote:Sony Asking Sam Raimi and "Captain America 2" Directors For Help With "Spider-Man" Franchise

Directors Anthony and Joe Russo did such a great job with "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," that the helmers will return for "Captain America: Civil War" and have been rumored to take over for Joss Whedon on the two "Avengers: Infinity War" films.

According to the hacked Sony Pictures emails, the Russo brothers have had numerous conversations with Sony Entertainment co-chairman Amy Pascal about using Spider-Man in "Captain America: Civil War." And since that deal didn't work out, the brothers have been in talks to produce Sony's upcoming "Spider-Man" films.

In older emails, Pascal begged Sam Raimi, the director of the first three "Spider-Man" films, to help with bring the franchise to what it once was. But in another email, Pascal tells a colleague that she doesn't need Raimi's help because he went "Joel Schumacher on the third ['Spider-Man' movie]." For those who don't know, Schumacher is the man behind "Batman and Robin."

Worst Previews wrote:Marvel Would Have Recast Spider-Man in "Captain America: Civil War"

Internal emails about the "Spider-Man" franchise continue to leak online. Today, we have an exchange between "Spider-Man" producer Matt Tolmach, Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chairman Amy Pascal and Columbia Pictures president of production Michael De Luca.

Tolmach and De Luca have been asking Pascal to greenlight a "Venom" movie, but Pascal would rather introduce the villain in the "Sinister Six" film, believing that the character is not popular enough to support his own movie.

While discussing Spider-Man joining "Captain America: Civil War," De Luca said that Marvel would want to introduce a new Spider-Man, which means that Andrew Garfield would no longer play the role. But that was fine with De Luca, since Marvel would make the superhero exciting again, making it easier for Sony to rebuild their franchise.

The Marvel deal didn't work out, so De Luca proposed another "Spider-Man" reboot. But this time, he would like to skip the origin story and focus more on the modern "Spider-Man" comics written by Michael Bendis, Michael Strascynski and Brian K. Vaughn. De Luca also feels that Venom, Carnage and Hobgoblin would be good additions to the reboot.

Second reboot failed. :lol:

couldn't they just continue and make a Spiderman sequel but with a different actor?

they do it all the time: James Bond, John Connor and so on.

that way us simpletons won't get confused when we see a different actor in Civil War. ;)

You're right Cyborg. It would be great to have the series continue with one storyline with the cast changing every 3-4 films.

There will be further developments for sure in the coming days and weeks but it looks like Sam Raimi of the original trilogy is possibly making a comeback for "Spider-Man 4" by owning up to past mistakes and making a clean start. Not entirely his fault though..

Superhero Hype wrote:Sam Raimi Talks Candidly About Spider-Man 3, ‘I Messed Up Plenty’

Despite being the highest grossing film in the franchise worldwide, 2007′s Spider-Man 3 is often cited as the worst in the series and one of the bigger letdowns of the superhero movie era. Such a letdown in fact that it lead to the rebooting of the whole franchise with Andrew Garfield as the new Peter Parker and Marc Webb in the director’s chair. Speaking on the Nerdist Podcast (via THR), Raimi opened up about the film and alluded to the mistakes made during production.

“Each and every one of those Spider-Man movies were pretty damn challenging,” Raimi said. “Working in that big budget arena where so much is at stake with much beloved characters that Stan Lee created and people really hold them so dear to them that you don’t want to mess up, and I messed up plenty with the third Spider-Man, so people hated me for years — they still hate me for it… It’s a movie that just didn’t work very well… I tried to make it work, but didn’t really believe in all the characters and so that can’t be hidden from people who love Spider-Man. If a director doesn’t love something, it’s wrong of them to make it if so many other people love it.”

Spider-Man 3 brought in $890 million worldwide during its initial release, a series high that still holds after the release of “The Amazing Spider-Man” films, both of which Spider-Man 3 outgrossed by $74 and $134 million, respectively.

There are a few ways Sony are looking to return Spidey to the big screen:

Marvel/Disney want Parker back in high school and making his first appearance in "Captain America 3: Civil War".

Sony have everything on the table:

One is Adult Parker in his 30's as a high school science teacher. This is pretty much "Spider-Man 4" with a time gap between 3 and 4. Raimi, Maguire and Dunst would likely return for this one.

Secondly Sony wants to adapt the Kraven’s Last Hunt comic story. This could be a "soft" reboot by making it a one off like the DC animated films. New cast as well.

Lastly making a Sinister Six and Venom both "soft" reboots.

EDIT: With Sony royally screwing Spider-Man I personally think the best way to bring us fans back is one of three options:

1) Give Spidey back to Marvel/Disney.

2) Go back to what works and what most fans prefer if option 1 doesn't happen. "Spider-Man 4".

3) Reboot. But this time let at least 5 years go by before starting again.

Here's a video from the fans:

Superhero Hype wrote:It’s Official: Spider-Man Enters the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

Sony Pictures Entertainment and Marvel Studios officially announced today that Sony is bringing Marvel into the amazing world of Spider-Man! Under a new deal, a new Spider-Man (not Andrew Garfield) will first appear in a currently-unspecified Marvel film within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sony Pictures will thereafter release the next installment of its $4 billion Spider-Man franchise, on July 28, 2017, in a film that will be co-produced by Kevin Feige and his expert team at Marvel and Amy Pascal, who oversaw the franchise launch for the studio 13 years ago. Together, they will collaborate on a new creative direction for the web slinger. Sony Pictures will continue to finance, distribute, own and have final creative control of the Spider-Man films.

Marvel and Sony Pictures are also exploring opportunities to integrate characters from the MCU into future Spider-Man films.

The new relationship follows a decade of speculation among fans about whether Spider-Man – who has always been an integral and important part of the larger Marvel Universe in the comic books – could become part of the Marvel Universe on the big screen. Spider-Man has more than 50 years of history in Marvel’s world, and with this deal, fans will be able to experience Spider-Man taking his rightful place among other super heroes in the MCU.

“Spider-Man is one of Marvel’s great characters,” says Bob Iger, Chairman and CEO, The Walt Disney Company, “beloved around the world. We’re thrilled to work with Sony Pictures to bring the iconic web-slinger into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which opens up fantastic new opportunities for storytelling and franchise building.”

“We always want to collaborate with the best and most successful filmmakers to grow our franchises and develop our characters. Marvel, Kevin Feige and Amy, who helped orchestrate this deal, are the perfect team to help produce the next chapter of Spider-Man,” said Michael Lynton, Chairman and CEO of Sony Pictures Entertainment. “This is the right decision for the franchise, for our business, for Marvel, and for the fans.”

“Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios share a love for the characters in the Spider-Man universe and have a long, successful history of working together. This new level of collaboration is the perfect way to take Peter Parker’s story into the future,” added Doug Belgrad, president, Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group.

“I am thrilled to team with my friends at Sony Pictures along with Amy Pascal to produce the next Spider-Man movie,” said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. “Amy has been deeply involved in the realization on film of one of the world’s most beloved characters. Marvel’s involvement will hopefully deliver the creative continuity and authenticity that fans demand from the MCU. I am equally excited for the opportunity to have Spider-Man appear in the MCU, something which both we at Marvel, and fans alike, have been looking forward to for years.”

Spider-Man, embraced all over the world, is the most successful franchise in the history of Sony Pictures, with the five films having taken in more than $4 billion worldwide.

As a result of the new deal, Thor: Ragnarok will now arrive nearly four months later than planned, moving to November 3, 2017 (from July 28). Black Panther, which previously held that spot, gets delayed eight months, going from that original November 3 date to July 6, 2018. That, in turn, bumps Captain Marvel to November 2, 2018 and moves Inhumans all the way to July 12, 2019. The two-part Avengers: Infinity War, meanwhile, remains set for release May 4, 2018 and May 3, 2019.

YES YES YES!!!!

So Disney/Marvel can now make Spider-Man films which is this this one. But... Sony can still make Spidey films at the same time. :x

I wonder what they will call it. Ultimate Spider-Man? Spectacular Spider-Man? I know the comics had different names like that, which is why we got 'Amazing Spider-Man'

will be annoying to not have a sequel to the last one, with all the story lines they wanted to continue and hinted at. Amazing Spider-Man 2 wasn't the best but it wasn't terrible either. they could have at least waited till 2020 to reboot it. new decade, clean slate. I have heard they are still making those spin-offs though. and Spidey will make his new appearence in Captain America 3 in 2016.

they should just have a more grown up Spider-Man, that way it can or can't be connected to either series. no references to the previous movies, just have Spidey battling a new villain. new actor playing him would make sense that way.

Spider-Man 4? :lol: Realistically I believe it will be "Ultimate Spider-Man" with a Peter Parker established as Spidey for a couple of years and being recruited into the Avengers.

I do hope J.K Simmons returns to the "Bugle".

Superhero Hype wrote:Sinister Six Still in Development, Spider-Man to Debut in Captain America: Civil War

Last night, Marvel Studios broke the internet once again by revealing they would co-produce a new Spider-Man movie in 2017 after introducing the character into the Marvel Cinematic Universe via one of their own films. Now, The Wall Street Journal reports that Spidey’s debut feature in the MCU will be none other than Captain America: Civil War, set for release on May 6, 2016.

“Civil War” is also set to introduce Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther into the realm of the MCU in what is described as “a big part” of the film. It seems unlikely that this would change, but alterations are possible now that the web slinger has returned home.

In other Spider-Man news, WSJ also reports that Sony’s Sinister Six feature film remains in development but has been pushed back from its November 2016 release date as the studio “rethinks” their plans for it. The Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard is attached to write and direct the film.

The Amazing Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield will not reprise his role of Peter Parker in the upcoming film, which is scheduled to hit theaters on July 28, 2017. Who would you like to see take on the part in the MCU?

Superhero Hype wrote:Get Ready for a Much Younger Spider-Man!

The internet has been abuzz all morning in the wake of last night’s announcement that Spider-Man is coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although details are still few as to precisely what route this latest reboot of the character will take, The Hollywood Reporter has today dropped a few details that should help fuel speculation.

What we know right now that is that Spidey will make his MCU debut in Walt Disney Pictures’ Captain America: Civil War, set for release on May 6, 2016. He’ll then get his own solo film with a still-untitled Spider-Man movie, set for release on July 28, 2017. Who will be underneath the mask? According to the trade, it’s going to be a “much younger” actor than Andrew Garfield (currently 31).

We’re not sure yet who will take the director’s chair on Spider-Man either, although it is said that, as expected, Marc Webb definitely won’t be back. Previous producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, meanwhile, are being given “Executive Producer” titles on the new film, but won’t have any serious creative input, adds the trade.

The article also notes that Marvel Studios may be putting itself in a position to eventually reacquire the screen rights to Spider-Man altogether. The timeframe for that, however, is likely sometime off.

Who would you like to see wear the webs? Share your casting thoughts in the comments below!

UPDATE: Variety is reporting that, while plans for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 have been cancelled, Sony Pictures is still developing other Spider-Man-related films, including Sinister Six, Venom and a female-driven Spider-Man spinoff. Only time will tell whether or not any of these make it to production and, if they do, how they’ll be related to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Superhero Hype wrote:Is Drew Goddard Writing and Directing Spider-Man?

The next big screen Spider-Man adventure appears to have found its director! According to Latino Review, Drew Goddard will both write and direct the upcoming reboot, which is to be set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Goddard is no stranger to either Marvel Studios or Sony Pictures. He was previously set at the showrunner on “Marvel’s Daredevil” before taking writing and directing duties on Sony’s previously-planned Sinister Six film.

Previous reports have indicated that we’ll get our first look at the new Spidey in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War, set for release on May 6, 2016. He’ll then get his own solo film, written and directed by Goddard, set for release on July 28, 2017.

Goddard also has quite a history with Joss Whedon, having served as a writer on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel” before collaborating with Whedon on the screenplay to The Cabin in the Woods. Goddard also made his directing debut with that film, which was released in 2012 and included, among its ensemble cast, MCU star Chris Hemsworth. Goddard’s other writing credits include World War Z, Cloverfield and Ridley Scott’s upcoming The Martian.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal will produce the film, which has previous franchise producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach being given Executive Producer titles.

Superhero Hype wrote:The New Spider-Man Movie Won’t be an Origin Story!

Fans who are dreading a third big screen re-telling of Spider-Man’s origins need fear not as CraveOnline today has learned, straight from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, that 2017’s Spider-Man film won’t be an origin story!

“There is a young kid [already] running around New York City in a homemade version of the Spider-Man costume in the MCU,” says Feige. “You just don’t know it yet… In Spider-Man’s very specific case, where there have been two retellings of that origin in the last whatever it’s been – [thirteen] years – for us we are going to take it for granted that people know that, and the specifics.”

This news comes on the heels of confirmation earlier today that the film will, indeed, follow a high school-aged Peter Parker.

“We’ve already designed the costume,” Feige teases, “which is different than any of the ones that have come before. And yet ours is classic Spidey, as I think you’ll see.”

Check out the full interview, in which Feige also talks about what he thinks the other big screen versions of Spider-Man got right, over at CraveOnline.

Casting for the new Spider-Man is expected to be announced very soon as the character will debut in Anthony and Joe Russo’s upcoming Captain America: Civil War, set for release on May 6, 2016. He’ll then get his own solo film, written and directed by Drew Goddard, set for release on July 28, 2017.
