Spider-Man, Marvel, Sony, and what it all means

10 February 2015 10:15 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Now Marvel and Sony are teaming up on the future of big screen Spider-Man, lots of questions spring up. So we try to answer them.

In case you haven't heard the news, Sony and Marvel jointly announced yesterday that Spider-Man will be joining the Marvel cinematic universe. Here are the facts:

* The deal will begin with Spider-Man appearing in at least one McU movie before 2017.

* In 2017, Spider-Man will get a new film, co-helmed by Marvel and Sony.

Those statements aren't much, but they leave us with a lot of questions to answer. And here are our attempts to answer them.

How has this happened?

As astonishing as this move seems, there's a certain amount of inevitability to it. The studios might like to spin it as a creative decision, but like everything in Hollywood, it's all about the money. If you look at the box office numbers for the five Spider-Man movies Sony has produced, »

"Grimsby," "Southpaw" Score New Dates

22 January 2015 3:26 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Sony Pictures has pushed back the Sacha Baron Cohen comedy "Grimsby" from its July 31st release date to early 2016.

The Louis Leterrier-directed film will now open on February 26th 2016 and also stars Isla Fisher, Rebel WilsonPenélope Cruz, Ian McShane, and Gabourey Sidibe.

In response, The Weinstein Company has now slotted in Antoine Fuqua's boxing drama "Southpaw" for that July 31st release date. Coming off his emaciated look in "Nightcrawler," Jake Gyllenhaal buffed up for "Southpaw" which deals with a middleweight boxing champion who struggles after he experiences a personal tragedy.

The move offers something one normally doesn't get in the middle of summer - a serious, dramatic piece targeting adults. A welcome move though in some quarters.
