Some are still buzzing with energy, while others are a little sad that it's all over for another year. There are even those dour sourpusses who feel this year was nothing but lackluster. Even if that's the case, Comic-Con 2014 wasn't without its surprises. Maybe there weren't as many as in years past. And the fact that neither Marvel nor DC announced any of its upcoming titles still stings. But, dang that footage! Both studios are clearly on the path to releasing two of the biggest movies of all time! It's clear that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Avengers: Age of Ultron will be vying to knock Avatar off its perch as the top grossing movie of all time. But seeing the latest and first footage from these superhero behemoths wasn't the only fun studios had with their fans and ever-expanding audience. There were a couple of curveballs thrown »
Marvel may not have given us any Daredevil news at San Diego Comic-Con, but they did manage to slip one minor detail under the wire on the very last panel of the event. During Marvel’s 75th anniversary panel, which also celebrated the 50th anniversary of Daredevil, Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada revealed that the series will hit Netflix in May 2015.
With Avengers: Age of Ultron arriving that very same month, I wonder if the two will connect or intertwine at all. Marvel’s meticulous with their release dates (as evidenced by the way Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. managed to tie into both Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier so snugly), so there’s a chane that they’re timing Daredevil‘s release with Age of Ultron on purpose.
Or, I could be wrong, and the two could not intersect at all. We know that the »

To close out San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel held one final panel devoted to the 75th anniversary of Marvel Comics and the 50th anniversary of Daredevil. Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada was on hand alongside writers Mark Waid and Dan Slott, and before long talked turned toward the upcoming Daredevil series on Netflix (which, to the chagrin of fans, did not have a presence during Marvel’s TV panel earlier in the week).
Quesada spoke briefly about how the series is currently filming in New York City, and revealed that it is expected to arrive in May 2015, the same month as a little Marvel film you may have heard of called Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Quesada didn’t talk in detail about the series, but did say that he was excited to see the Man Without Fear team up with the likes of Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage »

Week in Review rounds up the best of the rest of film and TV news hitting the web this week. Check out the rest of the Sos Blog for more news updates.
Unless your name is Edgar Wright, it’s hard to imagine a superhero movie of any caliber and pedigree not somehow getting made in today’s day and age.
And yet in 1997, that’s exactly what happened. Tim Burton, many years after the success of his original Batman, was attached to direct Superman Lives, originally starring none other than Nicolas Cage as everyone’s favorite Kryptonian and adapted from a screenplay by Kevin Smith.
Just how in God’s green Earth did this brilliant, strange mash-up of talents in a movie never come to light is the question behind a documentary currently in production, The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?
The film is being directed by Jon Schnepp, »

Sony has confirmed that "Sinister Six", a "Spider-Man" spin-off feature, focusing on a group of 'Spider-Man' villains, will be released November 11, 2016, written/directed by Drew Goddard ("Cabin In The Woods"), based on classic Marvel Comics characters created by writer Stan Lee and illustrator Steve Ditko:
The original incarnation of the group was organized by 'Doctor Octopus' and first appeared in "The Amazing Spider-Man Annual" #1 (January 1964).
"...'Doctor Octopus' contacts every known enemy of 'Spider-Man', but only 'Vulture', 'Electro', 'Kraven the Hunter', 'Mysterio' and 'Sandman' respond. Knowing he'd never be able to keep the team together, Doc Ock formulates a battle plan in which each individual member of the 'Sinister Six' would battle Spider-Man in a carefully chosen location.
"Spider-Man himself had his own problems, as he had somehow lost his powers and prepared to return to normal life as a teenager.
"As Peter returned to his »

There was a time when Sony’s Spider-man franchise was the most bankable comic book property in Hollywood. However, that (unfortunately) seems like a very long time ago now, with films like The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier sweeping up the box office a regular basis.
It appeared as if Marvel Studios had all-but-eliminated their competition until this years X-men: Days Of Future Past became a huge critical and financial success. The Amazing Spider-man 2 however, failed to impress audiences or critics and ended up as the lowest grossing entry in the franchise. Many blamed the poor reception of the latest web-spinning adventure on Sony’s effort to establish a cinematic universe (by using multiple antagonists once again), which resulted in an overly bloated script with little room for character development. With interest in the series clearly waning with each successive instalment, Sony clearly need to re-think their »

Though Sony has been ambitious with its plans for the expansion of the Spider-Man universe through the current Amazing Spider-Man franchise, the second film in the series wasn’t quite the massive smash the studio might have been hoping for. And admit recent changes to behind-the-scenes teams on the other movies comes word that the third film to focus on the webslinger, originally scheduled for 2016, has been pushed back to 2018.But if you’re wondering what might fill the Spidey void, the villains have your back. The Sinister Six, which Cabin In The Woods’ Drew Goddard is writing and directing, will step in, taking aim with all its dastardly weapons at November 11, 2016. The film will feature the likes of the Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and Dane DeHaan’s Green Goblin, alongside a variety of others plucked from Peter Parker’s rogues’ gallery.As for the third Spidey film, Marc Webb has »
Sony has made a bold statement of intent regarding the future of the Spider-Man franchise, confirming release dates for both The Sinister Six and The Amazing Spider-Man 3. With The Amazing Spider-Man 2 having performed indifferently at the box office, there had been some doubt cast on Sony’s plans for the series, but those have now been brushed aside with the announcement of these new dates. The Sinister Six will be the next film in the series to hit cinemas, with the Drew Goddard-directed supervillain saga set to open in the Us on...

After several pieces of news that Sony Pictures is struggling to continue and expand its Spider-Man franchise, the studio has now announced the release plan for "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" and "Sinister Six," which is a spin-off focusing on Spider-Man villains.

Sony's Columbia Pictures announced its updated schedule for the web-slinger Wednesday. By ordering Sinister Six ahead of the next Spider-Man movie, the studio hopes to expand the franchise with the group of Marvel super-villains.

We’ve seen superheroes band together as a powerhouse group in Marvel’s The Avengers and now Sony is forming their own Marvel-based team of comic book characters, but with a villainous slant. Sinister Six, a movie featuring a host of antagonists from The Amazing Spider-Man universe, has been slated for a 2016 release, and Sony has also pushed back the premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 3 by two years.
THR reports that Sinister Six is now officially set for a November 11th, 2016 release. With The Amazing Spider-Man spinoff securing a calendar spot, Sony swapped the release date of The Amazing Spider-Man 3 from June 10th, 2016 to a date in 2018, likely in June. The delay of the third Amazing Spider-Man film will in turn postpone the original May 4th, 2018 debut date for The Amazing Spider-Man 4, but the new official release date for that entry has yet to be announced.

Beleaguered Studio chief Amy Pascal countered the negative press about her revolving executive suite--global distribution and marketing chief Jeff Blake announced his departure Tuesday--by doing some spinning of her own. It is not coincidental that the studio revealed their "Spider-Man" plans for the next few years. Plainly, they need to remind skeptics that their biggest franchise (some $4 billion to date worldwide) is proceeding apace. Columbia Pictures' release strategy for the "Spider-Man" franchise: the next film in the series will be a villain spin-off from writer-director Drew Goddard, "Sinister Six," which is "the first of several planned character and story expansions." Produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, the movie will hit theaters on November 11, 2016. Columbia is pushing back the release of the next installment, "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" by two years, from June 10 2016 to 2018. Clearly »

The torrent of news out of the "Spider-Man" camp continues to flow, now in the form of updated release dates. Perhaps not surprisingly, fans of the "Amazing Spider-Man" franchise are going to have to wait a little bit longer than they had expected to see the web-slinger back on the big screen. Columbia Pictures has announced, as reported by Deadline, that rather than "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" swinging onto the big screen on June 10, 2016, it is being pushed back to 2018. Additionally, it was announced that the Drew Goddard helmed "Sinister Six" film will be in theaters on November 11, 2016. Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group President Doug Belgrad is quoted as saying, "With 'Sinister Six' in the hands of writer-director Drew Goddard, we feel extremely confident placing the film on a prime date in 2016." That film will focus on a set of "Spider-Man" villains, and had some of its groundwork laid in »

We’ve been hearing talk from the likes of Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman suggesting that Sony may have jumped the gun when it came to announcing 2016 and 2018 release dates for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4, and it seems that is indeed the case after all, with the studio announcing a reshuffle of its Spidey plans today.
Fans of Andrew Garfield’s wall-crawler are going to have to wait until 2018 to see Spidey back on the big screen in The Amazing Spider-Man 3, with the studio opting instead to move ahead with its supervillain ensemble The Sinister Six first, with the Drew Goddard-directed flick set to land on November 11th 2016. Meanwhile, video game adaptation Uncharted moves into The Amazing Spider-Man 3′s original date of June 10th, 2016.
Quite where this leaves The Amazing Spider-Man 4 is anyone’s guess. Garfield will be pushing 35 years of »

Last week I saw some rumors about Sony Pictures' Sinister Six film being cancelled. I never posted the rumors because it sounded like pure speculation, and it was. The studio has announced that they will release the villainous Spider-Man spin-off film on November 11th, 2016. The Amazing Spider-Man 3 will follow a couple years later and is going to be released in 2018. It was supposed to be June 10th, 2016, but Sony moved their Uncharted film adaptation into that spot.
The supervillains first appeared in 1964, and they included Doctor Octopus, Electro, Kraven the Hunter, Mysterio, Sandman, and the Vulture. I assume Spider-Man is also going to be a main character in this film. I don't see how they could make a movie without him. Both »
