'Spider-Man': Marvel May Have More Control Than Sony

25 February 2015 3:00 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans are still buzzing over Marvel and Sony's announcement earlier this month that Spider-Man will finally join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the beloved web slinger reportedly set to make his debut in Captain America: Civil War, although that hasn't been officially confirmed by Marvel yet. Yesterday, Sony Pictures announced that Tom Rothman will step in for Amy Pascal, who left her job as Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chairman and Motion Picture Group president just weeks ago. Some have worried that this may hinder the new Spider-Man reboot, since Tom Rothman oversaw superhero flops such as Daredevil and Elektra during his tenure at 20th Century Fox. However, a new report from Latino-Review reveals that Marvel may have more control over Spidey than originally thought.

The site backs up previous reports that The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 producers Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach are "producers in name only" with the new Spider-Man movie, »

Spider-Man Won't Be White in Marvel Cinematic Universe?

23 February 2015 9:28 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just days after we reported that actor Donald Glover is essentially giving up his "campaign" to play Miles Morales, an unconfirmed Spider-Man rumor reveals that this new version of the character will not be white, and he will not be Peter Parker. When Marvel and Sony officially announced that Spider-Man will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sony Pictures president Doug Belgrad specifically mentioned the character Peter Parker by name, but, if this unconfirmed rumor is true, the rebooted Spidey may be Miles Morales from the Ultimate Marvel Comics. Here's what The Wrap's Jeff Sneider had to say about the rumor.

"This is not set in stone, guys, but I'm telling you right now: Spider-Man's not going to be white. I'm 95% sure. Spider-Man's going to be most likely black. But there's a chance he could also be latino. 95% sure: not white. I don't think it's going to be Peter Parker. »

'Spider-Man': Donald Glover Ends Miles Morales Campaign

20 February 2015 5:40 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back in 2010, when Sony Pictures was rebooting their Spider-Man franchise, a grassroots fan campaign sprung up for Community star Donald Glover to play the Miles Morales version of the web slinger, which the actor himself embraced. Despite a strong campaign, the studio eventually went with Andrew Garfield, who starred in The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Now, of course, Sony is rebooting the character once more, and, while promoting his new thriller The Lazarus Effect, in theaters February 27, Donald Glover was asked if he planned on campaigning for the role once again. Unfortunately for Donald Glover fans, the actor said he would still be honored to play Spider-Man, but it isn't something he will actively pursue.

"Of course, I would always be honored to play Spider-Man. It's Spider-Man. But I just want the Spider-Man movie to be dope, that's all I want. I'm leaving it to them. »

10 Unanswered Questions From The Amazing Spider-Man Franchise

20 February 2015 1:09 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Gameloft

The Amazing Spider-Man franchise is officially dead. The movies were a disappointment, promising “The Untold Story” which fans never got to see. Instead, it rehashed elements from 2002’s Spider-Man, while also introducing some very confusing new plot threads. Regardless, those who did enjoy actually enjoy Marc Webb’s two releases are now left with a long list of questions about the many different characters introduced, the story-lines being set up for a third instalment (and a number of spinoffs), and more besides.

To the majority fans, the recent news about Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures coming to a deal which will see Spidey join the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War is most welcome. However, one of the biggest downsides to Spider-Man swinging his way into the world of Iron Man and the Guardians Of The Galaxy is the fact that there are so many unresolved »

Marvel Studios Countdown: Three Things Marvel Should Do with Spider-Man

16 February 2015 5:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The rumors finally became reality. Marvel Studios can use Spider-Man in an upcoming movie, and Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and former Sony chairman Amy Pascal will work together as producers to bring the next Spider-Man solo film to the big screen. Though the Marc Webb films have their moments, there was a lot of ill-informed franchise building, where random pieces were being set up for possible use in the future to the detriment of the immediate stories they were trying to tell. An all-new Spider-Man movie (another reboot!) will happen on July 28, 2017, and Marvel has said you’ll see the character in an upcoming movie prior to his new solo adventure. It’s unusual for a studio to cry out for help, especially when the money is still there. The feeling is that even...

10 Reasons Miles Morales Shouldn’t Be Spider-Man In Civil War

15 February 2015 2:32 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

It’s really happening. After leaked emails and months of speculation and rumours, Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures announced a deal which will see Spider-Man join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s widely believed that will happen in Captain America: Civil War next year, while it’s already been confirmed that this new Spidey will swing his way into yet another reboot in 2017 in the release date previously held by Thor: Ragnarok.

The revelation of the news has already caused a lot of discussion and debates, with a very vocal minority demanding that Marvel use Miles Morales rather than Peter Parker. Created by Brian Michael Bendis in 2011 following the death of the Ultimate Spider-Man (a character who heavily influenced Marc Webb and Andrew Garfield’s Amazing Spider-Man movies), the young hero has proved to be surprisingly popular over the last few years and the suspicion is that a »

Marvel's 'Spider-Man': What Did the Sony Hack Reveal?

12 February 2015 2:26 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, superhero fans got the news they've been waiting several years for, with Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures solidifying a deal that finally brings Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The official announcement revealed that the new Spidey will be introduced in an upcoming Marvel movie, which, according to several different reports is Captain America: Civil War, before a brand new stand alone Spider-Man adventure, produced by Marvel's Kevin Feige and Sony's Amy Pascal, which is set for release on July 28, 2017.

As you may well know, late last year, when thousands of internal documents were leaked from the Sony hack, some of those documents gave us a glimpse into Sony's plans for the web-crawler, which are well worth examining once more, now that the deal has gone through after several months of negotiations. While some of these details have since been confirmed others have not, so we'll have to »

Spider-Man: first candidates to take over from Andrew Garfield

11 February 2015 10:43 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The new Spider-Man is going to be of high school age, it seems. And the star of The Maze Runner has been linked for a start.

We're very much in the early rumour stages as to the identity of the big screen's next Spider-Man, but already one or two names are being mooted for the role.

Variety is reporting that Sony and Marvel are looking to take Spider-Man back to high school age, Which should be good news for Uncle Ben at least, as it gives him a chance to come back from the grave once more. He'll get his own zombie movie spin-off at this rate.

A couple of names have been mentioned "as being considered for the role" of the new Spider-Man. The two so far have been Dylan O'Brien, from The Maze Runner, and Logan Lerman, who headlined the Percy Jackson movies. Neither at this stage has »

Movie News - Spider-Man to go back to high school

11 February 2015 10:28 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Spider-Man will go back to high school in his next film. The superhero - who was previously played by Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire - will be portrayed by a younger actor in Sony's next take on a film based around the comicbook character, Variety reports. The studio are said to be considering casting a rising star such as 'The Maze Runner' and 'Teen Wolf' actor Dylan O'Brien or Logan Lerman, who recently starred alongside Brad Pitt and Shia Labeouf in 'Fury'. However, actors have yet to be approached as Sony are also looking to hire a new director to replace Marc Webb - who directed 'The Amazing Spider-Man' films - for the latest movie. Meanwhile, there are also reports the studio could be set to introduce Miles Morales - a Black Hispanic teenager who takes over as Spider-Man after Peter Parker dies - as the »

Lobbying for Donald Glover to be the next Spider-man begins anew

11 February 2015 9:43 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Aside from the casting rumors circling actors like Logan Lerman for the new rebooted Spider-man set to debut in next year's Captain America: Civil War, the same Internet fans who wanted comedian/rapper Donald Glover to play the webslinger are coming back to the forefront again. If you weren't already aware, in 2011 there was a grassroots effort to have the Community star cast as the new Peter Parker for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-man. Eventual star Andrew Garfield even liked the idea »

Andrew Garfield Was in Talks to Return as 'Spider-Man'

11 February 2015 9:24 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In the wake of Marvel's Earth-shattering news that Spider-Man is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Monday, a slew of new details surfaced yesterday, including several outlets reporting that The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star Andrew Garfield will not return as Peter Parker. The Daily Beast has a new report which also confirms that the actor is not coming back, but they also reveal that he was actually in talks with Sony to return. According to the site's source, it "ultimately didn't make sense to keep" the 31-year-old actor on board.

The actor was well-liked as Peter Parker in both Amazing Spider-Man movies, but his performance was essentially one of the few things many critics praised about both of director Marc Webb's efforts. The new untitled Spider-Man movie will reportedly take Spider-Man back to high school at Midtown High, with Sony and Marvel planning to focusing more of the story here, »

New Spider-Man Is Going Back to High School

11 February 2015 8:15 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Spider-Man had better get ready for pop quizzes - Sony wants to send the character back to high school in the franchise's next films.

Variety reports that Sony is looking for a younger actor to replace Andrew Garfield, who would debut in an upcoming Marvel movie (likely "Captain America: Civil War"). A couple of names floating around are "Maze Runner" actor Dylan O'Brien and "Percy Jackson" star Logan Lerman.

First, Sony has to find a new director to replace Marc Webb before holding auditions. And they have yet to decide on whether Spider-Man should be Peter Parker or another character in the suit. But high school will definitely be a major setting in Spidey's standalone films, which would "explore his awkward relationship with other students while fighting crime out of the classroom."

Before a solo Spider-Man movie, however, he'll probably appear in "Captain America: Civil War," set for a 2016 release. »

Dylan O’Brien and Logan Lerman are being “considered” for new Spider-Man; Marc Webb will not return

11 February 2015 6:53 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last 24 hours, there was some rather exciting news yesterday announced that Spider-Man has joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Since then, some names have been banded around by the Internet on who could be the new Spidey once it was revealed that Andrew Garfield would not be suiting up for a third outing as the wall crawler.

Well, let the casting rumour games begin.

According to Variety and their sources “close to the studio”, Sony are “considering” Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner) and Logan Lerman (Fury), but no official meetings have been set up yet. The site also claims that this version of Spider-Man will indeed be a teenager once again in high school, but no decision has been made on whether they will go with Peter Parker or Miles Morales. Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) will also not be returning to direct. »

Sinister Six, Venom, Female-Led Spidey Spinoff Still Alive At Sony

11 February 2015 5:30 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A few days ago, we’d have said that Marvel would have to move heaven and earth to convince Sony to let Spider-Man play in its cinematic sandbox, so now that such a deal has finally come to fruition, it only follows that there are some fascinating details to parse out, both about the financial and logistical aspects of the webslinger’s future.

A new report delineates the specifics of Marvel and Sony’s arrangement, which involves far less money changing hands that one might have suspected. Marvel did not have to pay to snag Spider-Man for Captain America: Civil War and (almost certainly) Avengers: Infinity War – Parts 1 & 2. However, the studio is also not expected to receive any of the box office from future Spider-Man movies, and similarly, Sony will not get a cut of the profits from any Marvel titles featuring the wall-crawler. Both studios signed the deal confident »

More Details on Marvel's Spider-Man Deal, New Spider-Man to be Younger

11 February 2015 4:45 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Marvel and Sony Pictures recently announced that the two companies made a deal to let Spider-Man appear in Marvel movies in exchange for Marvel helping guide Sony's upcoming "Spider-Man" reboot as well as allow for Marvel's superheroes to appear in it. Today, we have a few more details. It turns out that there was no exchange of money and that each company would keep all the earnings from their films. Both companies simply felt that this deal would increase everyone's revenue. And while it's not clear how, Marvel is using this opportunity to put itself in a position to reacquire the film rights to Spider-Man one day. As predicted, Spider-Man will first appear in Marvel's "Captain America 3: Civil War" on May 6th, 2016. He'll then get his own solo film on July 28th, 2017. Marvel and it's head Kevin Feige will help guide the Spider-Man reboot. "The Amazing Spider-Man" director Marc Webb »

Andrew Garfield opted not to return to Spider-Man role

10 February 2015 10:57 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It seems that Andrew Garfield was offered the chance to stay on as Spider-Man, but declined the offer...

It didn't all quite go to plan for Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man. His performances as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the two The Amazing Spider-Man movies earned praise and credit, but the films around him never really took off in the way that Sony was hoping.

In the light of yesterday's announcement, that Spider-Man was joining the Marvel cinematic universe, it had been widely assumed that the character was being rebooted again, and that Garfield would be moving on from the role. That's the case, too. There will indeed be a new Spider-Man cast. But it's being reported that Garfield was indeed offered the chance to carry on as Spider-Man, but chose not to.

As The Daily Beast Reports, Garfield had talks with regards carrying on as Spider-Man, "but ultimately it didn't make »

Spider-Man spin-off movie Sinister Six still active

10 February 2015 10:53 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Drew Goddard's Sinister Six film won't be arriving in 2016 now, but it remains in development at Sony...

Yesterday's announcement that Sony and Marvel are joining forces on the big screen future of Spider-Man - that we've distilled here - left us with the not-unreasonable assumption that plans for Sony's movie universe set around the character were done and dusted. We know that the next Spider-Man film won't be The Amazing Spider-Man 3, we know that Andrew Garfield and director Marc Webb aren't returning. And so we figured that the Sinister Six and Venom spin-offs were off the slate too.

But that may not be the case. At least in the case of Sinister Six, the film that Drew Goddard quit the Daredevil TV series to write and direct, there's still a glimmer of hope. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the Sinister Six film is remaining in development at Sony, »

Marvel's 'Spider-Man' Eyes Logan Lerman and Dylan O'Brien

10 February 2015 9:16 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier tonight, we reported that Marvel and Sony plan on sending Peter Parker back to high school in the new Spider-Man that is being planned. At this time, Sony, who will have the ultimate say in who is cast as the new web-crawler, are already targeting two young actors to play the role. In contention are Logan Lerman and Dylan O'Brien. The plan is to get someone younger than the 31 year-old Andrew Garfield, who previously played the role in The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Logan Lerman is 23 years old, but can still pass for high school age. Dylan O'Brien is the same age, and is equally youthful in his appearance. Sony, who has ultimate say over what exactly the new Spider-Man will be, plan to keep Peter at Midtown High School a little longer, as the main thrust of this new series will focus on Parker's awkward relationships with fellow students, »

'Spider-Man' Is Heading Back to High School with Marvel

10 February 2015 7:37 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, we reported that both Marvel and Sony are eyeing much younger actors to play the new Spider-Man, since The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star Andrew Garfield will not be back to play Peter Parker. Variety now reports that "a number of actors already have been mentioned as being considered for the role," including Dylan O'Brien (The Maze Runner) and Logan Lerman (Fury). The site does add that Sony and Marvel have not approached these actors quite yet, since their first order of business is to find a new director to replace Marc Webb. But it is confirmed that this Peter Parker will still be in high school.

Peter will head back to Midtown High School, the same setting that was used in both Sam Raimi's Spider-Man starring Tobey Maguire and Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man movies starring Andrew Garfield. Both of those incarnations »
