Week in Review: Support a documentary on a Nic Cage Superman movie

17 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

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, »

'Spidey' Villains In The "Sinister Six" - November 11, 2016

24 July 2014 3:53 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

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.

‘Sinister Six’ Gets 2016 Release But ‘Amazing Spider-Man 3′ Delayed

24 July 2014 4:22 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

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 »

24 July 2014 1:36 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

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 »

The Sinister Six to arrive in 2016

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...

23 July 2014 7:17 PM, PDT | | See recent Worst Previews news »

Sinister Six Release Date Set, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 Release Moved to 2018

23 July 2014 12:11 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

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.

Sony Counters Bad Press with 'Spider-Man' Announcements

23 July 2014 11:19 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

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.

Sinister Six, Amazing Spider-Man 3 get release dates

23 July 2014 11:17 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Amazing Spider-Man spin-off film Sinister Six has been given a release date.

Columbia Pictures announced during San Diego Comic-Con that the movie will be released on November 11, 2016.

Sinister Six will focus on the six super villains from the Marvel universe, and be directed by Drew Goddard.

It has also been announced that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 will be released in 2018.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb recently spoke to Digital Spy about his sequel, saying that the film builds foundations for future spin-offs.

"There is the idea that other movies are going to emerge from this universe, like the Sinister Six and Venom," he explained, "and we wanted to acknowledge and build a foundation for that."

The Amazing Spider-Man 3 Pushed Back to 2018; Sinister Six Set for 2016 Release

23 July 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Sony may not be bringing anything big to this year’s Comic-Con, but they’ve made some huge announcements today. The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was originally scheduled for a 2016 release, but Uncharted (the big screen adaptation of the popular PlayStation video game series) has now taken that movie’s June 10th release date.

However, we Will be revisiting the Spider-Man Cinematic Universe two years from now as Sinister Six is scheduled to open on November 11th, 2016. Written and directed by Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods), that movie focuses on a team of villains who team up to take down Peter Parker.

It’s not clear whether Spider-Man will appear in that movie or who will make up the team’s roster, but Dane DeHaan’s Green Goblin will likely be there, with the likes of Doctor Octopus and Electro joining him.

'Amazing Spider-Man 3' delayed, 'Sinister Six' and 'Uncharted' get release dates

23 July 2014 10:57 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

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 »

The Sinister Six gets 2016 release date as The Amazing Spider-Man 3 pushed back to 2018

23 July 2014 10:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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 »

Sinister Six Movie Has a Release Date

23 July 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

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. 

Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods) is attached to write the film, which will expand the Spider-Man cinematic universe. He may end up directing it as well.

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 »

‘Sinister Six’ Gets 2016 Release Date; ‘Amazing Spider-Man 3′ in 2018

23 July 2014 10:33 AM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

This past week, reports began to circulate that the Amazing Spider-Man spinoff Sinister Six – a film about a team of Spider-Man super villains - might be in serious danger of being cancelled. Not so, it turns out, as Sony/Columbia Pictures has announced an official Fall 2016 release date for writer/director Drew Goddard’s Sinister Six movie. Meanwhile, Amazing Spider-Man 1 & 2 director Marc Webb’s Amazing Spider-Man 3 has been pushed to 2018 (presumably, the May 2018 spot that Sony is currently holding onto).

Sony Delays 'Amazing Spider-Man 3', Moves Up 'Sinister Six' and 'Uncharted'

23 July 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Originally set to hit theaters on June 10, 2016, Sony has now decided to delay The Amazing Spider-Man 3 two years to 2018, the year The Amazing Spider-Man 4 was previously expected to hit theaters. However, they aren't giving up on the idea of building a world around the web-slinger despite the lackluster returns from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which had been expected to gross nearly $1 billion worldwide this summer, but has so far only amassed $706 million. Instead of a new Spider-Man film in 2016, the studio is moving forward with The Sinister Six with writer/director Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods), releasing on November 11, 2016. The film features an all-star lineup of Spider-Man villains, all of which were teased in the Spider-Man 2's end credits including Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Rhino, Vulture, Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio. No word on which one of those villains may show up, but it seems »
