While the Sony hack appears to be over for the time being, more information is still coming forward that was leaked from various emails and documents from deep within the studio. By this point, everyone knows that Marvel was working hard to make a deal with Sony to bring Spider-Man into Captain America: Civil War. That deal never happened, but more details on exactly what was to take place have emerged, and they shed some light on the proposed The Amazing Spider-Man reboot that would have seen Marvel and Sony working close together. It is believed that Sony is still ready to reboot the franchise without Andrew Garfield in the lead.
Some of this new information both confirms and contradicts what we've heard in the recent past. It is speculated by Cbm that some of the past information was made up by foreign bloggers looking to cash in on the »
One consequence of the Sony email hack has been the revelations of about the Spider-Man film franchise, specifically that at one point the studio considered creating a deal with Marvel Studios that allowed them to share the Wall-Crawler. Then last week there were reports that if a deal was reached that allowed Marvel to obtain creative control of Spider-Man, the Sony Amazing Spider-Man films would be labeled as non-canon, and more importantly, Andrew Garfield would be let go from the role. This scenario has angered enough fans that they.re banding together on the Internet to show their support for Garfield in one of the most organized ways possible: a petition. A petition has been created on Change.org to keep Andrew Garfield playing Spider-Man for future movies. The description states that the character has been handled "incorrectly by the greedy idiots at Sony," and that it would be a »

There's been a lot of talk recently, relating to sony's spider-man films, and most of it has been negative. The main thing being discussed is Andrew Garfield reportedly being fired as the infamous web-slinger. This site unfortunately has neglected to report the humongous wave of support Andrew Garfield has been getting. Take one look at Twitter and you won't go 5 minutes without seeing the hashtags "#supportAndrew", "#saveTASM3", or even "#mockingjayAndrew". That's not all, there is also a petition on change.org to keep Andrew as spider-man that has already reached 8,000 signatures. Obviously that isn't many, but if we keep pushing, we can get up to 1,000,000 signatures. Weather the people of this site like it or not, we won't let Andrew go down without a fight. Signing is easy, if you go to sevenwebheads' Twitter page, you can find a link to the petition. Do the right thing, and »

Following on from the controversy surrounding the all-white casting of Exodus: Gods and Kings, legendary Star Trek actor and King of the Memes George Takei has spoken out against the proposed casting choices for the American adaptation of popular anime Akira.
It was reported by Deadline that the cast choices included Robert Pattinson (Twilight), Andrew Garfield (The Amazing Spider-Man) and James McAvoy (X-Men: Days of Future Past) for Testuo and Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy), Michael Fassbender (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Chris Pine (Horrible Bosses 2), Joaquin Phoenix (Her) and Justin Timberlake (Friends with Benefits) for Kaneda.
“The manga and anime phenomenon is mostly white in this country,” he told The Advocate, speaking out against the casting. “It originated in Japan, and, of course, it has a huge Asian fan following. But it’s the multi-ethnic Americans »

2014 has been a landmark year for comic book movies. Not only did we get two of Marvel's best-ever films (Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier), but the major studios announced enough future superhero adaptations to take us all the way up to 2019.
It's been a pretty landmark year for comic books too. It feels as though more genuinely exciting new titles launched in 2014 than in the past ten years combined, with DC, Marvel and especially Image taking big risks and creating some seriously compelling comics in the process.
We've picked out our 14 favourite comics from this year in terms of big-screen potential:
The Comic: On paper, Spread doesn't sound like the most original book on the market. Like The Walking Dead, it's set in a post-apocalyptic world where survivors fight off gruesome monsters and each other. As with The Thing, those monsters are giant shape-shifting »
Welcome To Issue 76!
If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation.
This Week: A mostly hack-free column (one link in there, but I get it out of the way quick)! First we update on the Spider-Man deal, then we talk through the plot of Avengers: Age of Ultron assuming the new Lego sets aren't lying to us.
Lots going on in the Marvel Universe this week, or at least the perception that there is a lot going on, because some set visit interviews from Avengers: Age of Ultron solidified some rumored plot developments and a Lego set for the film does what Lego sets do: have us wondering if we’re being sold cool brick guys or being told about the progression of action scenes in the film.
Then, there’s Spider-Man.

Poor Andrew Garfield. He rose to prominence in a decent (but disappointing) Spider-Man reboot with 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man and went on to star in the sequel which I think we can all agree is best left forgotten. Despite not working under the greatest of conditions (studio interference aplenty for example), many fans still agreed that he was a great Spidey, even if his Peter Parker was somewhat unlikeable when compared to his comic book counterpart! With recent reports and emails indicating that neither Sony or their possible partners Marvel want Garfield back as Spider-Man, it appears as if his time as the Marvel superhero has come to an end. It's a shame as you have to imagine that his hipster douche take on Spider-Man could have actually been something truly amazing in the right hands...right? We'll let you decide with the poll below! Should he return as Spidey »
Marriott Content Studio is plunging ahead in its goal to produce original travel programming. The production house just announced four new projects underway, including a short film, development deals with YouTube and Snapchat stars, and a new digital publication.
First up is Marriott’s short film called Two Bellmen. The movie stars skater William Spencer (the stunt double for Andrew Garfield in The Amazing Spider-Man movies) and stunt performer Caine Sinclair (of Grimm fame) as two competitive bellmen who become friends and stop an art heist at a private event at Jw Marriott Los Angeles La Live. Marriott’s Content Studio is creating the film in partnership with Substance Over Hype, a group focused on “movement” (both in the inspirational and literal sense) with videos surrounding topics like extreme sports, dance, music, martial arts, and parkour.
“Of all the prospective projects we’ve been developing, Two Bellmen seemed best-suited so far for short film production, »

Last week, emails from the Sony hack revealed that Marvel Studios was trying to obtain the rights to Spider-Man, so they could include the character in the highly-anticipated Phase Three adventure Captain America: Civil War. Later that day, another report revealed that deal may still be on the table, and yet another report claimed that Marvel wants to reboot Spidey entirely, which would involve getting rid of current star Andrew Garfield. Today, a new report from Badass Digest reveals that Marvel is currently moving forward on Captain America: Civil War without the web-slinger, for now.
The site notes that there is also the possibility of a cameo or an end credits stinger, since we have nearly a year and a half to go before Captain America 3 hits theaters. Marvel always builds reshoots into their films' schedules, but as it stands right now, Peter Parker will not play a major »
Rome – “Boyhood” protag Ellar Coltrane will be feted by Italy’s Capri-Hollywood film festival dedicated to launching Oscar hopefuls and establishing a creative and business bridgehead between Hollywood and the Italian film and showbiz communities.
The young actor from Texas, chosen by director Richard Linklater after an extensive casting process to play Mason Evans Jr. from age six through 18, will receive the Capri Family Award during the informal event on the Italo isle off the coast of Naples. Capri is gaining increasing prominence as a platform for Academy Awards campaigns.
“Capri, Hollywood is more and more focusing its attention on giving recognition to young movie stars,” said Pascal Vicedomini, the Italo journo who heads the fest and also runs its sister event Ischia Global, and the L.A. Italia Italo cinema showcase.

We already told you that Marvel is not interested in bringing Andrew Garfield back to play Peter Parker/Spider-Man if they take over the character. After the studio heard about all of the crazy ridiculous movie ideas that Sony had for the superhero, like the Aunt May origin story, which they ”severely disliked,” Marvel is looking to gain creative control over the character.
If Marvel does get the control they are looking for, they plan on "wiping the slate clean with Sony's Amazing Spider-Man universe.” They just don’t want to in any way continue with what Sony had done with the character, which makes sense.
According to Latino-Review if Marvel does get a hold of Spider-Man, one of the big changes they will bring is taking the focus "away from the romance and drama," which, as you know, was a was a very heavy element in Marc Webb's version. »

With the Sony hack we have discovered that there has been talks between Marvel Studios and Sony in order to get the character of Spider-Man to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With Marvel developing Captain America: Civil War, it was discussed whether Spider-Man could cameo in the film, albeit a different version from Andrew Garfield’s portrayal. I personally think that Marvel should stop trying to get Spider-Man back and just get on with the properties they do have.
Even if Marvel did get the rights back to the character tomorrow I doubt we would get a Marvel Studios Spider-Man movie until Phase Four, which would be in 2019 at the earliest. Sure the character would be used in Civil War, but it would be a small role and then the character would likely play a supporting role in Avengers: Infinity War. »

Over the past week we’ve discovered a hell of a lot of information about Sony’s struggles with the Spider-Man franchise as information continues to make its way online via the Guardians of Peace hack into the studio.
If you’re struggling to keep track, first came the news that Marvel Studios had tried to reach a deal for Spider-Man to appear in Captain America: Civil War, along with reports that Sony had considered bringing Sam Raimi back into the fold, and were planning an animated movie from Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie) [details here]. This was followed by reports that Andrew Garfield has been effectively fired as Spidey, that The Sinister Six movie would see Spider-Man donning his black suit and Venom as the villain, and that a potential new reboot could be on the cards [details here].
Now, thanks to The Daily Beast, we’ve got some insight into this potential new reboot, »

What a week it's been for Spider-Man news! Leaked Sony emails have revealed discussions about the character possibly being handed over to Marvel Studios for an appearance in Captain America: Civil War and then his own series of movies set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Others meanwhile have revealed that Spidey might next be seen in Sinister Six or perhaps a reboot which would ditch Andrew Garfield and (Finally) focus on an adult Spider-Man. As of right now, we know as much as Sony when it comes to the future of Spider-Man (read: Nothing). It appears as if his fate will be decided next month, and things could go in any number of directions. However, it will ultimately come down to Sony either forging ahead with their own plans and hoping for the best or turning to Marvel Studios for help in once again making Spider-Man a box office success. »

More insider information has leaked out in the midst of the 'Sony Hack', and this time it revolves around notoriously picky actor Ryan Gosling. While he was said to previously be up for a role in Warner Bros.' Suicide Squad movie and the lead in Marvel's Doctor Strange, it has now come to light that he may have been holding out so that he could appear in one, if not both, of Sony's biggest franchise movies going at the moment.
Ryan Gosling has been a hard actor for studios to lock into a genre movie, as he prefers more serious cinematic storytelling. It has also been rumored that he doesn't want to get locked into a longterm contract, which is said to have kept him away from Doctor Strange. But the actor reportedly wants the lead role in the Ghostbusters reboot. He is rumored to be keen to work »
If the Sony hack has proved one thing, it's that the Amazing Spider-Man franchise is a mess and things are in shambles. Will Sony be able to get things back on the right track? More emails have leaked, and they indicate that Sony is planning a complete reboot for their iconic superhero, and that Andrew Garfield has already been fired.
A quick recap for anyone who has missed the ongoing saga behind this superhero series, things began when it was confirmed that Marvel was negotiating to use Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War. It was then revealed that Sony wanted to bring Sam Raimi back into the fold. Talk of an all-new Spider-Man series was put on the table, with Marvel offering to foot a majority of the bill while Sony held onto the creative rights. Captain America: Civil War directors The Russo Brothers have offered to produce this new trilogy. »
